A total billionaire fool. Presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg takes credit for leading New York “through” the 9/11 attacks in a campaign ad. But there’s one problem: He didn’t become mayor until four months later. Touting his leadership chops, the billionaire released a 30-second video including the claim.
“I led a complex, diverse city through 9/11 and I have common-sense plans to move America away from the chaos to progress,” But Rudy Giuliani was mayor during the attacks, and he didn’t hand Bloomberg the keys to Gracie Mansion until Jan. 1, 2002.
The businessman has so far poured $500 million of his $62 billion personal fortune into his campaign, including flooding the airwaves with campaign ads. Bloomberg served three terms as mayor — twice as a Republican and once as an independent. He was praised for leading the rebuilding of a decimated Lower Manhattan in the decade after the attack, but was considered wooden when it came to connecting with victims’ families compared to his predecessor, Giuliani.
