Footage Resurfaces of Michael Bloomberg Joking About Father and Son Who Died of Heroin Overdoses

Michael Bloomberg is consistent in his terribleness, at least.

Mike Bloomberg, an objectively terrible potential option for POTUS, is still in the game for some fucking reason. And in the latest round of resurfaced footage in which Bloomberg is filmed saying all the wrong things, the former NYC mayor criticized a father and son who died from heroin overdoses as "not a good family." In the same clip, Bloomberg also attempted to demonize marijuana legalization.

Per the Bermuda Broadcasting upload below circa March 2019, Bloomberg—as heard around the 19-minute mark—used a 2017 New York Daily News article about the tragic overdoses of 44-year-old Joseph Andrade and his son Carlos to crack an ill-advised joke that leads into some marijuana demonization.

"The New York Post or the Daily News had a picture on the front page where a father and a son, they both OD'd at the same party," he said. "It's not a good family. It's craziness. And then we are going hellbent for whether in this country to legalize marijuana, another addictive drug."

Bloomberg went on to state that he believes "the workforce" suffers because of all this, placing the proverbial cherry on top of yet another round of dumbshit from Gloomberg that's being rightfully picked apart by the public:

One funny thing about clips of Bloomberg saying something dumb is that he's almost always speaking at like, the annual forum of the International Association of Tax Havens and Sex Islands or something

My father overdosed on heroin. He’s been through a lot. This is the only way he feels he can cope. My grandma will probably never forget sobbing on the phone with 911, covered in vomit, trying to resuscitate him. Thankfully, she was able to save him. Fuck you, Michael Bloomberg.

Also, Bloomberg used his mockery of two men who died from heroin overdoses to argue against ... the legalization of marijuana.

In 2019.

My mom died in 2017 after a long fight with a heroin addiction. She was a loving woman who fought that sickness the entirety of my time on earth. She was "good family" just like these folk. @MikeBloomberg, your run is an insult to all victims of addiction.

Here's the clip of Mike Bloomberg in a room full of New York businessmen laughing at the deaths of Carlos and Joseph Andrade, who both died of heroin overdoses.

Carlos had two sons, one was just 11 months old.

Previously, previous instances of Bloomberg's general offensiveness culminated in the #BloombergIsRacist hashtag on Twitter.
