Hey, who needs pesky numbers to win anymore?
Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg declared victory in the Iowa caucuses early Tuesday, despite a botched election process that delayed the release of the state’s results.
“So, we don’t know all the results,” Buttigieg told hundreds of supporters at a rally in Des Moines. “But, we know, by the time it is all said and done, Iowa you have shocked the nation. Because, by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious.”
CBS News asked @MikeBloomberg — who is campaigning in California during the Iowa Caucuses — about his feud with President Trump, and whether people want to see two billionaires fighting on Twitter.

Quite a soundbite. I’m not a fan of any billionaire. A billion dollars is so much money that accumulating more billions is just some weird number game used to track ego to the detriment of the people under them who are being penny pinched and sometimes at a physical cost (Bezos, I’m looking at you)
But given that Trump’s entire identity is this lie that he is worth anything close to a billion, I’ll enjoy this squabble.
It’s ok though, she justified her reasoning by citing some strange book written a few thousand years ago which also encourages sex slavery and genocide.
I don’t quite understand how a caucus is supposed to work. But I guess neither do you. You ever think about doing a primary next time maybe?
