After a disappointing performance on Super Tuesday, Michael Bloomberg suspended his presidential campaign — but the fact that he's the fourth candidate to drop out in recent days isn't what got people talking. Instead, the reported $500 million he supposedly spent out of pocket on his campaign was the topic of the day on Twitter this morning.
Naturally, people had a lot of feelings (and jokes) about it.
With an estimated net worth of $58.4 billion, $500 million is a drop in the bucket for the philanthropist and former New York City mayor, but the rest of us will keep dreaming about what we could do with even a fraction of that amount of money.
On Super Tuesday, Bloomberg only managed to win in the territory of American Samoa. In a statement announcing his campaign suspension, he said he would be endorsing Joe Biden.
