Sanders Supporters Get "#EatTheRich" Trending On Twitter In Epic Bloomberg Troll

• by Tyler Durden

It all started when one user pointed out that Bloomberg once supported Michigan's former Republican Gov. Rich Snyder, the public official who has been blamed for Flint's Water Crisis, before arguing that Bloomberg could single-handedly "fix" Flint's water crisis (federal officials actually certified that Flint's water was safe to drink back in 2017) with just a fraction of the money - a mere $50 million - that he had spent on his campaign.

Now, it doesn't matter that Flint is nearly finished replacing the lead water lines at the root of the crisis, or that, although Snyder escaped criminal liability, dozens of state, local and federal officials involved in the decision to switch Flint's water supply to the Flint River are facing jail time.
