Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is the candidate currently rising in the polls in the Democrat Presidential primary.
Bloomberg’s reported $60 billion fortune gives many Democrats hope that he is the savior they have been searching for to vanquish Donald Trump.
But Mike Pence dropped the hammer on Mike Bloomberg with this rude awakening.
Mike Pence tweeted out a video of a 2013 Super Bowl commercial for Dodge Ram trucks, which was set to audio of Paul Harvey’s famous 1978 recording, “So God Made a Farmer.”

Pence never mentioned Bloomberg directly, but this video came in response to a recently unearthed 2016 video of Bloomberg speaking at Oxford where Bloomberg dismissed famers as morons that did a job anyone could do.
“I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer,” Bloomberg stated. “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that.”
“Then we had 300 years of the industrial society,” Bloomberg continued. “You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job.”
The Wisconsin GOP also emailed out Bloomberg’s comments as agriculture plays a major role in that key state’s economy.
Donald Trump and his administration fought for a fair deal with China that finally made trade work for American farmers.
Mike Bloomberg trashed farmers as simpletons and rubes.
If Bloomberg is the Democrat Party nominee this contrast will surely be one of the biggest issues in the campaign.
