Cringeworthy video of 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg performing in a stage play surfaced over the weekend, drawing widespread ridicule from social media.
The video shows Bloomberg appear on stage in an outfit out of Mary Poppins, complete with an umbrella that grants him the ability to “fly,” while he brags about taking the presidency one state at a time.
“I’ll tell you where I’m going,” Bloomberg says haltingly as he unfurls his umbrella.

“First, Iowa. Then, New Hampshire!” he says as he begins to float above the stage (Notably, Bloomberg skipped those two primary states).
“Maybe I can get the whole country to behave!” he adds as he floats across the stage until the curtain drops.
The bizarre footage prompted many to mock the awkward performance.

This comes as the billionaire former New York mayor pours money into efforts to make himself seem more hip and likable to millennials and Gen Z, paying social media personalities to speak highly of him and deploying memes across the internet to make him appear “cool.”
Bloomberg has even hired a comedy writer and “narcissist expert” to help his campaign gain insight into President Trump’s thinking ahead of the election.
