Bloomberg: ‘Anybody [Can] Be a Farmer,’ It Takes ‘A Lot More Gray Matter’ To Work In Tech

It’s no wonder he chose to skip the Iowa caucus, given that former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg apparently thinks farmers and manufacturers all across America lack “gray matter.”

In a clip just now circulating online, Bloomberg, while speaking at Oxford’s Said Business School back in 2016, explained that “anybody [can] be a farmer,” but that it takes “a lot more gray matter” to “think and analyze” enough to work in the tech field.

“I could teach anybody – even people in this room, no offense intended – to be a farmer,” Bloomberg explained. “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that.”

Bloomberg then switched to insulting manufacturers and tradesmen.

(From the comments) This gem; “As a politician I’m surprised he left out the crucial fourth step, spread manure… God Knows, he generates enough of it every time he opens his mouth!”
