As part of the Distinguished Speaker Series, Oxford Saïd welcomed Mike Bloomberg, Founder, Bloomberg LP & Bloomberg Philanthropies and three-term mayor of New York City.
In the video, Bloomberg can be heard saying, “I can teach anyone how to be a farmer. One: dig a hole. Two: put a seed in it. Three: put dirt on top. Four: add water. Five: up comes the corn.”
Watch the relevant remarks below around the 42-minute mark.
The arrogance and ignorance of Mini-Mike about American Agriculture today is alarming. He has NO idea how technical farming is today-made harder by a gov't made of guys like him who make it harder w/ idiotic regulations. Don't let this guy NEAR the @WhiteHouse https://t.co/m6AV4gYTGE— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) February 17, 2020
This emergence of this latest video caps a tough week for the Bloomberg campaign, which also saw the resurfacing of his infamous ‘Stop and Frisk’ campaign along with revelations that his campaign is paying social influencers to post memes that make him look cool.
If that's not enough, watch the video below, which may end proving to be the most inconvenient of all for Bloomberg. In this one, the candidate speaks about the need to deny heathcare to elderly people stricken with cancer in order to save on overall costs.

“If you show up with cancer & you’re 95 years old, we should say...there’s no cure, we can’t do anything.
A young person, we should do something. Society’s not willing to do that, yet.” pic.twitter.com/7E5UFHXLue
