Long story short, rich guy Michael Bloomberg doesn't know much about Colorado.

Get what he said about Colorado Springs and Pueblo.  If he thinks that about THOSE cities, what would he say about cities/towns here in Northern Colorado?

Billionaire and former mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg used some totally derogatory adjectives while referring to two of Colorado’s largest cities. ABC 7News had the story about how Bloomberg, in a Rolling Stone article, discusses gun law legislation that was passed in 2013; and how voters in Colorado Springs and Pueblo to boot out their legislatures.

The story is about politics mostly, but in the story Bloomberg talks about the politicians who were recalled by the voters- and how he disagrees with how the voters acted.

Sure. OK, disagree- that’s fine.  However, he goes and takes a shot about living in Colorado Springs and Pueblo!

"In Colorado, we got a law passed," Bloomberg told the magazine, referring to legislation passed by Democratic state lawmakers in 2013 that expanded background checks on gun buyers and limited the capacity of ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.

"The NRA went after two or three state senators in a part of Colorado where I don't think there's roads. It's as far rural as you can get,"

He's saying Colorado Springs and Pueblo have no roads? They're as far RURAL as you can get?  What a maroon!

Rich people. They just go and spout off about stuff they know little about, don’t they?  I get it now- he must think that people in Colorado Springs and Pueblo don’t have access to the internet or Rolling Stone magazine, so there’d be no way this would get back to him!

Rich people are dumb.

What do you suppose he’d be saying about say.. Evans? “Well, folks there in Evans, they’re just now getting black and white TV…”

What a jerk.
