Apology tours are all the rage, and many a Democrat feel the need to say sorry for various things they did in their past in order to remain in the good graces of the increasingly radical sect of the Democrats.
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, however, finds this all ridiculous to the point of being laughable. He took aim at two 2020 Democratic hopefuls in particular, former VP Joe Biden, and Robert “Beto” O’Rourke.
Speaking at a Bermuda Executive Forum in New York, Bloomberg was asked why he hasn’t thrown his hat into the 2020 ring, and at first answered that he didn’t want to go through the time and effort it takes to campaign for the job, especially at his age.
Near the end of the explanation, however, Bloomberg noted that in order to do it you have to go on an apology tour nowadays.
“Joe Biden went out and apologized for being male, over 50, white, and he apologized for the one good piece of legislation that is an anti-crime bill,” Bloomberg said to laughter from the audience.
He then turned his sights on O’Rourke, not even going so far as to consider him worthy enough to learn his name.
“Beto, whatever his name is. He’s apologized for being born,” said Bloomberg to a mass of laughter from the audience.
Competition + age. Among other things.

At this time, Biden is still leading almost every poll when Democrats are asked who they would like to see run against Trump in 2020. O’Rourke did place third for some time, but was replaced by Kamala Harris after her CNN town hall.
Bloomberg has become an outspoken critic of many of the radical positions Democrats have taken, including attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.
