Mike Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions targeting Donald Trump, but his latest ad has a new target, Senator Bernie Sanders. Bloomberg is attacking so-called #BernieBros. One quote on-screen asked, “Are you being harassed by a Bernie Bro or a Bernie bot?”
The ad on the negative “energy” from Bernie Bros, was a response to a Sanders speech stating that Bloomberg’s money will not be enough to create the kind of “excitement and energy” needed to defeat Donald Trump.
“We will not create the energy and excitement we need to defeat Donald Trump, if that candidate pursued, advocated for, and enacted racist policies like Stop and Frisk, which caused communities of color in his city to live in fear,” Sanders said.
The ad is, predictably, drawing mixed reactions.
