Pod Save America on Howard Schultz Running for President: ‘F*cking Awful Thing To Do’
FAVREAU: "Mike Bloomberg — same thing. Mike Bloomberg looked at what it would be like to run as an independent, realized he could hurt the Democratic candidate's cause and thus help elect Trump, so Mike Bloomberg said 'Alright, I'm either running as a Democrat, or not at all.' These two people — Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg — on very different ends of the spectrum, are both thinking, 'Yeah, we could both run in the Democratic primary, and we'll just see if anyone likes our ideas.' Howard Schultz thinks that he doesn't have to do that, that he gets to just run on his own as an independent and do it that way, even if it means hurting the Democratic candidate and helping to re-elect Trump, and that's just a f*cking awful thing to do."
