Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Seth Meyers Mocks 'Billionaire Freakouts' Over Dem Primary”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers went on an extended rant about all the billionaires “freaking out” about the Democratic presidential primary, mocking their entitled, tone-deaf responses to taking on fellow billionaire, President Donald Trump: “You know want can fix this? A different rich guy.”

From former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s belated entry into the 2020 race to current billionaire candidate Tom Steyer’s flailing campaign to Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ complaints about heavy taxes to Chase CEO Jamie Dimon’s dismay at , Meyers ran through a laundry list of disgruntled or dissatisfied mega-wealthy businessmen.

“I know what you’re thinking,” Meyers said, leading off his “Closer Look” segment. “You’ve been watching the rampant corruption of the Trump presidency, the catastrophic failure of the Trump Administration and the destructive influence the wealthy have had on politics and you’re saying to yourself: ‘You know what can fix this? A different rich guy.’

On Bloomberg: “That’s right. Michael Bloomberg is really close to jumping into the Democratic primary. You know, the guy who used to be a Democrat, then switched to Republican to run for mayor, then switched to Independent after he became mayor, then went back to being Democrat. I mean, that’s how my Mom orders at a restaurant. “I’ll have the fish. No, the chicken. You know what? Just come back — do me last, do me last.”

On Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos: “It was reported Bloomberg had been coaxed [into running] by another even wealthier billionaire. Vox reported that Jeff Bezos asked Michael Bloomberg months ago if he’d consider running for president. Wow, he just ordered up a presidential candidate. What level of Amazon Prime is that?”
