It seems Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire who decided to buy his way into the Democratic Presidential Primary long after all the other candidates began running, was watching the Democratic Debate on January 14 and decided to send a joking tweet.
The subject of the tweet, recent winner of Jeopardy!'s "Greatest of All Time" competition Ken Jennings, made it clear how he felt being used by Bloomberg to gain support.
Remember, tonight’s winner goes on to face defending champion Ken Jennings. #DemDebate— Team Bloomberg (@Team Bloomberg)1579057832.0
Remember, defending champion Ken Jennings wants you to vote for Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. https://t.co/aTwXK85iym— Ken Jennings (@Ken Jennings)1579066013.0
