Bloomberg Loves Him Some Dictators

A reminder:  Mike Bloomberg positions himself as a 'moderate' Democrat, and Mike Bloomberg publishes a "newspaper".  His logic here is comical, worth a laugh if it weren't about a mass-killer.

That's prelude to this:

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg recently claimed in an interview with PBS’s Firing Line host Margaret Hoover that Chinese Communist Party chairman Xi Jinping is “not a dictator” and argued the country’s so-called environmental policies demonstrate the communist leader answers to a “constituency.”...
Oh.  Well, then, all those dead bodies and prisoners, well, that's just fine.  Because.

As to non-answers:

....MARGARET HOOVER: The United States currently accounts for 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. China accounts for 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. How do we, even if we get to zero, how do you get India, China, and the other countries to be good partners.

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: China is doing a lot. Yes, they’re still building a bunch of coal-fired power plants

HOOVER: And they’re still burning coal.

BLOOMBERG: Yes they are. But, they are now moving plants away from the cities....When the public says ‘I can’t breathe the air,’ Xi Jinping is not a dictator. He has to satisfy his constituents, or he’s not going to survive.
Credit NPR's Hoover for asking the question.

Mike, you ignorant twit:  he moved the plants because they were killing the slave-labor Xi needs for his empire.

Being a Democrat means being willfully ignorant.
