Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg filed paperwork on Thursday to run for president in Alabama.
Many internet users ridiculed Bloomberg’s bid, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Warren’s website says Bloomberg’s wealth puts him in the “top 0.0002% of Americans.”
Under Warren’s wealth tax, Bloomberg would pay $3.079 billion in taxes, leaving him with $48 billion.
The site says he would “still be extraordinarily rich.”
New fund-raising email from the Warren campaign goes after Bloomberg: "When faced with the prospect of paying his fair share in taxes so that we can level the playing field for working families, Bloomberg has chosen to protect his wealth over everyone else"

One-term presidents: Will Donald Trump end up on this ignominious list?
Donald Trump has many hardcore fans and many, many detractors. It's certainly possible he will be re-elected, but also clearly plausible that he will be a one-term president. General election polls have generally found him trailing in a head-to-heat matchup with either former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders, and roughly even with Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. It would be folly to say that he is definitely going to lose, to be sure, but it is equally foolish to act as if he has victory in the bag.
How to prevent ugly primary feuds
It started as garden-variety tensions between two campaigns competing for the same voters. Then it exploded into a testy exchange during — and after — Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate, when Elizabeth Warren refused to shake Bernie Sanders' extended hand. By Wednesday morning, Sanders' supporters online were using a snake emoji to symbolize Warren, and it wasn't hard to decode the sexist reference to the original betrayal in the Garden of Eden.
I asked people why they don’t vote — and this is what they told me
With the 2020 presidential election approaching, directives for people to “get out and vote” will be firing up again.
