Why this matters? There was an article that was published earlier at the CTH about Bloomberg’s timing of entering the presidential race and with Biden falling fast is now polling in 3rd place and is probably the likely preferred candidate of the Democratic party.
Story here. If you want more insight as to Bloomberg’s timing and strategy this is a good article to read.

Spread this around as MSM is trying to bury this audio.
Apparently Bloomberg tried to block this 2015 audio from release and it’s trending #1 today, primarily because he’s now polling 3rd nationally among Democrats. The knives are out.
“The way to get guns out of kids hands is to throw ‘em up against the wall and frisk them. These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed.

Michael Bloomberg representatives have asked the Aspen Institute not to distribute footage of his recent appearance in Aspen, where the three-term New York City mayor made pointed comments concerning minorities and gun control.
Both the Institute and GrassRoots TV, the organization that filmed the event, confirmed Thursday that they will not broadcast the footage online or on television as planned.
“We basically honor the wishes of our speakers, and Mayor Bloomberg preferred that we not use the video for broadcast,” the Institute’s chief external affairs officer Jim Spiegelman wrote in an email Friday. “He did not give a reason nor did we have any reason to ask for one. We often feature speakers who prefer that their presentations not be videotaped.”
