Mayor Bloomberg’s Girlfriend Always Reminds Him: ‘It’s About My House, My Job’


The President was born here. I’m a friend of Donald Trump’s, he’s a New York icon, but I think the Republicans are making a terrible mistake in making [birther-ism] a big issue. We have immigration, we have the deficit, we have the economy. Those are the things the public cares about. My girlfriend always says it’s about housing and jobs: my house, my job. That’s what the public cares about, and if the Republican party doesn’t start addressing that, they will lose and they deserve to. [The back-and-forth between Democrats and the GOP] is good theater, but the country can no longer afford this.” —Speaking out against Donald Trump’s birther campaign, Michael Bloomberg sounds sensible on Fox News Sunday today.
