Michael Bloomberg talked about the difference between the “intelligentsia” who made it into the room, and the vast bulk of people.

“I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the bathroom issue in the United States,” he said. “If you want to know is somebody a good salesman, give them the job of going to the Midwest, and picking a town, and selling to that town the concept that some man wearing a dress should be in a locker room with their daughter. If you can sell that, you can sell anything.”

Bloomberg explained how confusing the transgender issue is for Midwesterners.

“So many things that we are nuanced and the social issues that we’re very proud of achieving aren’t believed by the vast bulk of the people,” he said.
