I promised "reactions from late-night comedians" at the end of Bloomberg and Patrick enter the Democratic nomination contest at the last minute and it's time to deliver. First up, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah spent more than six minutes on Bloomberg’s Belated 2020 Bid.
Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg floats a late-in-the-game White House bid and is met with resistance from the Democrats already in the race.Those are some impressive put-downs from other candidates, especially Bernie Sanders.
Noah was not alone using Bloomberg for a bit. James Corden did as well in The Latest Presidential Candidate Is An Actual New York Billionaire.
James Corden recaps the news of day, including reports that Michael Bloomberg may enter the 2020 presidential race and some of the sights and sounds of President Trump's rally in Louisiana.Bloomberg got a full minute before Corden changed the subject. On the other hand, Deval Patrick just got one good joke in Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick Joins 2020 Presidential Race before Seth Meyers moved on to other topics.
I think that gives a good idea of the relative importance of the two candidates or at least their comedy value.
Still to come, "drink recipes [and] graphs of their ideological positions from OnTheIssues.org." Stay tuned.
