New York Daily News Gives Mike Bloomberg A Savage Souvenir Of His Failed Campaign

The tabloid mocked “Moneybags Mike” for splashing the cash -- with nothing to show for it -- with its latest cover.

The New York Daily News used its Thursday front page to mock billionaire media mogul Michael Bloomberg over the amount of money he spent on his failed presidential campaign.

The tabloid newspaper depicted the former New York mayor as wearing a holiday destination-style souvenir top emblazoned with the words: “I spent $500M & all I got was this lousy T-Shirt.”

Bloomberg blew a reported half-billion dollars on his Democratic campaign before dropping out Wednesday and endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden.

Bloomberg only won the American Samoa Democratic caucus on Super Tuesday in what was an otherwise poor showing.

“Three months ago, I entered the race for President to defeat Donald Trump,” Bloomberg said via a statement announcing the termination of his campaign.

“Today, I am leaving the race for the same reason: to defeat Donald Trump ― because it is clear to me that staying in would make achieving that goal more difficult,” he added.
