Michael Bloomberg Sounds Off on Trump, Clinton and the Media


Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke off the cuff Monday morning about issues ranging from President Trump’s election to why Hillary Clinton lost and the problem with the media industry today.

Bloomberg, who stopped by Hearst Tower in Midtown, spoke with Hearst Magazines chief content officer Joanna Coles to plug his new book “Climate of Hope,” which he co-authored with Carl Pope.

Coles opened the conversation with international news, namely the election of French President Emmanuel Macron over the weekend.

“The story of his wife being so much older and she was his teacher at school was so romantic,” she said, referring to Macron’s 64-year-old wife, Brigitte.

Bloomberg called the 39-year-old Macron a “sex symbol” and noted that he recently saw a photo of Brigitte.

Calling her “drop dead” [gorgeous], Bloomberg noted that the photo was from 25 years ago. He added another jab when he criticized Macron’s lack of political experience and compared him to Trump and, later, Barack Obama, who became president without having “run anything.”
