Where Bloomberg and Trump Agree

They both detest those who fight for the civil rights of the oppressed and they hate unions.

Here is Bloomberg:
“We don’t need extremists on the left or the right running our police department, whether it’s the NRA or the NYCLU,” the then-mayor Bloomberg said of the New York Civil Liberties Union, in a 2013 speech in which he defended the city’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy.
Referring to leadership of the United Federation of Teachers, Bloomberg said in 2013: "The NRA’s another place where the membership, if you do the polling, doesn't agree with the leadership.”
That's Bloomberg's metric- if he disagrees with your organization, he compares it to the NRA.

Bloomberg and Trump are both thin-skinned, glass-jawed plutocrats who believe that their wealth makes them people that nobody else has a right to criticize. They differ in wealth, politics and smarts, but in their souls, they are the same people.
