Resurfaced Video Shows Bloomberg Insulting Farmers, Tradesmen As Having Brainless Careers

A resurfaced discussion is coming back to haunt billionaire Mike Bloomberg in his bid for the White House.

In the video, which took place at the Said Business School summit in November 2016, Bloomberg chalked up farmers and tradesmen as individuals with brainless careers that “anybody” can do.

He argued that the new “information economy” actually requires skill sets of “how to think and analyze.”

Bloomberg started by talking about the history of an agrarian society, which is a community who depends primarily on growing crops.

“The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years,” he said. “Anybody, even those in this room — no offense intended — can be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put the seed in, you put dirt on it, add water, and up comes the corn,” Bloomberg said. “You could learn that.”

“Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job,”

He made a similar comment about tradesmen in the industrial age before jumping to a statement that angered many across social media: “Now comes the information economy … it’s built around replacing people with technology, and the skillsets you have to learn are how to think and analyze. And that is a whole degree level different.”

He concluded by saying that you have to have “a lot more grey matter.”

The Bloomberg campaign responded to the posting of the video, claiming that it was taken out of context and that the first part about the agrarian society was intentionally left out to make the former NYC mayor look bad.

Watch Bloomberg’s comments in the video below and decide for yourself if it’s offensive to farmers and tradesmen.

Ironically, these comments come from a billionaire businessman who’s probably never sweat it out in the fields and is clueless about the grueling logistical aspect of farming/tradesman-ship.

Nobody is impressed with pompous remarks made at a leadership summit. Everyone is grateful to God that hard-working Americans work day and night to feed an entire nation.

    Gee, didn’t Joe Biden say that coal miners could learn to program?
    If Bloomberg thinks farming is that simple then he doesn’t know one thing about it.
    Ah, I like to see these peoples’ skeletons come out to shoot them in the foot!

    How about the intelligence to build, as well as the skill to complete any building from start to finish! Especially scheduling every trade to work around and with other trades? It takes a special skill &!mindset! It seems Everyone wants to work on the internet, but with so many degrees earned and so many people unable to get a job who don’t measure up, and the country is facing an extreme shortage of skilled craftsman, mostly because the school system has done away with Industrial Arts Education?? The people who train the next generation of craftsmen DON’T EXIST??

    Its people like this that think they know everything, but let’s see them put their money where their mouth is with statements like this from a educated hideout. They don’t even drive themselves anywhere. They depend on too many people they dont even write their own speeches so what do they know about farmers or tradesmen jobs. Let’s see them get out a drive a big truck from point A to point B and C, and let’s see if they get the job done on time, and in a faster time period. If I had to make a money deal on it I would say they would fail at any job big time, because their job is basically running their mouths on stuff they have no ideal about in the first pkace.
