Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has dropped out of the 2020 race for president of the United States.

Warren, 70, announced she was suspending her campaign on Thursday, March 5, a day after Mike Bloomberg ended his run after spending $500 million of his pocket change.

"I know that when we set out, this was not the call you ever wanted to hear," Warren said in a phone call to her staff. "It is not the call I ever wanted to make.”

Warren, once a frontrunner, was tripped up by her own lies and a mountain of half-truths. She once lied about being American Indian on a Harvard job application. She was forced to come clean after she announced she was running for president.

At times Warren was neck and neck with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. She was heavily criticized for not dropping out of the race before Super Tuesday to give Sanders more delegates. And she was once favored over the DNC's current favorite, Joe Biden.

The Democratic nomination is a 2-man race between Biden, 77, who is showing advanced signs of dementia, and Sanders, 78, who dubbed himself a Democratic socialist.

Michael Bloomberg announced he is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race. Bloomberg, 78, made the announcement a day after his dismal showing on Super Tuesday.

Bloomberg had promised to fix America's health care and strengthen the middle class, as he spent $200 million on ad spots in all 14 Super Tuesday states.

Bloomberg said he entered the 2020 race because he believed only he could beat President Donald Trump, 73.

The billionaire media magnate dropped $700 million on his campaign -- a record for campaign spending. Bloomberg is expected to spend heavily on frontrunner Joe Biden's campaign.

The Democratic nomination is a 2 man race between Biden and Bernie Sanders, who dubbed himself a Democratic socialist.

Biden, 77, was the big winner in South Carolina and on Super Tuesday after losing to Vermont Senator Sanders in Iowa and Nevada.

Bloomberg trended on Tuesday when a viral video released by his campaign showed him eating pizza out of a communal pizza box and licking his fingers afterwards.

Donald Trump Jr tweeted: "Truly disgusting!"

As Mike Bloomberg stepped up to the pulpit to speak at the historic Brown Chapel in Selma, Alabama, on Sunday, a handful of congregants silently stood and turned their backs to him.

Political and civil rights leaders spoke at the church to mark the 55th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday," when civil rights activists were brutally beaten by Alabama State Troopers during a march across Edmund Pettus Bridge.

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams sat behind Bloomberg as he spoke. She didn't bat an eyelash during the silent protest.

Before the service, Abrams, 46, shook hands with Bloomberg, who donated $5 million to her nonprofit voter suppression organization Fair Fight in Atlanta.

Pastor Leodis Strong applauded the former New York City mayor for even showing his face at the church in Selma.

"It shows a willingness on his part to change," said Strong.

The silent protest was in part due to Bloomberg's support of NY's controversial stop-and-frisk policy.

Critics say Bloomberg weaponized the policy to reflect his deeply held racist beliefs.

Bloomberg, 77, apologized in November for assigning more cops to minority areas "because that's where all the crime is."

Bloomberg apologized in January for ordering police to throw young Black males "up against the wall and frisk them."

And he apologized in February for saying Black and Hispanic males don't follow instructions at work.

One of the people who turned their backs to Bloomberg was Ryan Haygood, president and chief executive of the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice.

As he stood with his back turned, Haygood thought about the police brutality civil rights organizers faced in the church 55 years ago as they protested for equal voting rights.

"I thought this could be the place where he could finally say, once and for all, 'Let me own what I did, let me atone for it.' He didn't even touch it which is more disrespectful," Haygood said.

Joe Biden, fresh off his decisive win at the South Carolina primary on Saturday, also spoke at the annual "Bloody Sunday" service.

78-year-old Biden, who has his own racist past to contend with, playfully suggested that Abrams might be vice president someday.

Abrams closed the four-hour service with a speech about her ongoing efforts to register every Black person to vote for Democrats through her Fair Fight 2020 campaign.

Thanks to fat checks from donors like Bloomberg, her Fair Fight campaign has amassed $25 million in the bank.

Mike Bloomberg hopes Hillary Clinton will help give him a leg up in the crowded 2020 Democratic field. Drudgereport.com broke the news that Bloomberg, a tech billionaire and former mayor of NY, is considering picking Clinton as his running mate in the 2020 Democratic race.

Currently, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, 78, leads the Democratic field by 10+ points in the polls.

Bloomberg, 77, is said to be considering changing his official residence to one of his homes in Florida or Colorado because the electoral college prevents the president and vice president from residing in the same state.

Clinton and Bloomberg are pictured attending NY's Gay Pride parade in a photo dated June 2006. Polling indicates the Bloomberg-Clinton ticket would be a "formidable force" in the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination, according to London's DailyMail.com.

Clinton is a two-time loser in the presidential elections, having lost to Presidents Obama and Trump in 2008 and 2016 respectively.

Clinton, 72, has previously said she wouldn't rule out being vice president if the Democrats win the election in November.

The ex-first lady and Secretary of State told TV host Ellen Degeneres she would "never say never" to becoming vice president.

Clinton drew a huge round of applause from The Ellen Degeneres Show's audience when she urged voters to kick Trump out of office in November.

Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg wants voters to think he was an unrepentant racist until he decided to run for president of the United States.

Bloomberg is backtracking after he declared minorities were responsible for most of the crime in his jurisdiction when he was mayor.

In recently unearthed audio tapes, the 77-year-old billionaire defended his policy of aggressively policing minority neighborhoods.

In a 2015 speech at the Aspen Institute, Bloomberg said he needed to get guns out of the hands of individuals who are "male, minority, and between the ages of 15 and 25."

He said statistics of violent crimes committed by armed individuals were down during that period because police were ordered to throw young Black males "up against the wall and frisk them."

He admitted "we put all the cops in minority neighborhoods... because that's where all the crime is."

Clips from the speech went viral on Tuesday. President Trump tweeted one of the audio clips, before deleting his tweet. "WOW, BLOOMBERG IS A TOTAL RACIST!" Trump wrote.

Bloomberg is offering $150 to "influencers", such as pseudo-singer Beyonce, who make positive posts about him on social media and blogs.

"All the money in the world can't undo this," tweeted Trump's re-election campaign manager Brad Parscale, who quoted Bloomberg: "The way you get guns out of the kids' hands is to throw them up against the wall."

Last week, Bloomberg's camp aired a campaign ad featuring former President Barack Obama endorsing the NY billionaire who, like Obama, favors gun control in minority neighborhoods.

President Trump deleted a tweet calling presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg a "total racist." Trump posted, then deleted, a tweet along with audio of Bloomberg discussing New York's "stop-and-frisk" policy that reduced violent crimes in his city.

In the war of billionaires, Trump tweeted, then deleted: "WOW, BLOOMBERG IS A TOTAL RACIST!", according to published reports.

Trump rarely ever deletes a tweet. Some political analysts say it is an indication that someone in his inner circle warned him that he went too far.

In a statement to The Wrap, the former New York mayor said, "President Trump's deleted tweet is the latest example of his endless efforts to divide Americans. I inherited the police practice of stop-and-frisk, and as part of our effort to stop gun violence it was overused. By the time I left office, I cut it back by 95%, but I should've done it faster and sooner."

In the audio linked to Trump's tweet, Bloomberg praised the policy and suggested that the majority of the people who were stopped by police were white. He hinted that the perpetrators of violent gun crimes were not white.

"95 percent of your murders, murderers and murder victims, fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops: They are male, minorities 16 to 25. That's true in New York. It's true in virtually every city."

Bloomberg apologized in his statement to The Wrap. "I regret that and I have apologized. I have taken responsibility for taking too long to understand the impact it had on Black and Latino communities."

But Black Twitter noted that Bloomberg, at age 77, is too old to change his racist thought process, now that he is running for president.

Trump's re-election campaign manager, Brad Perscale, also tweeted #BloombergIsaRacist. Perscale did not delete his tweet.

This is not a drill. The National Rifle Association (NRA) is plastering highways with billboards to warn Virginians about the Democrats' plan to begin forcefully confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens on January 8, 2020.

Virginia is ground zero for the Democrats' anti-gun agenda with funding from billionaire presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg.

Democrat lawmakers in the state of Virginia have reportedly asked for $250,000 to prepare jails to receive "thousands" of law-abiding citizens who refuse to give up their guns.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who survived that blackface/yearbook scandal, announced he is banning the sale of semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines (bullets) in the state.

He also plans to restore a law that limits gun purchases to one gun a month.

These sort of things take time to go into effect, so Northam is empowering the courts in Virginia to begin confiscating guns from any "person deemed to be a risk to himself or others" on January 8.

"We will at least start with those," he reportedly said during a Cabinet meeting in early November.

Considering Northam's history of wearing blackface, it isn't difficult to guess who "those" people are.

When asked about confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens, Northam said "that's something I'm working on."

In response to Northam's threats, 90% of the counties and towns in Virginia have been declared sanctuaries from the Democrats' anti-gun agenda.

In the 1800s Virginia was a bustling port for the slavery trade. The Underground Railroad was formed there to free nearly 1,000 slaves in the South.

Barack Hussein Obama just lost another one: his car czar has stepped down after less than five months on the job. Steven Rattner, an investment banker, is under investigation for state pension fund hanky panky involving millions in kickbacks.

In 2005, Rattner's investment firm, Quadrangle Group, won $150 million in pension business with the help of a shady top political consultant who is himself under indictment.

Once again, a clueless Obama continued to back Rattner even after the federal investigation into his firm's business dealings were made public.

Rattner is replaced on the Auto Task Force by Ron Bloom, another of Obama's pals who doesn't know a thing about the auto industry.
