(UnitedVoice.com) – Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been dealing with his past comments on topics from policing to homelessness. He’s now facing scrutiny on another comment he made back in 2016 about America’s farmers.
Bloomberg on why farmers can’t work in information technology
MB: “I can teach anyone how to be a farmer 1 dig a hole 2 put a seed in 3 put dirt on top 4 add water 5 up comes the corn”

While visiting the University of Oxford Business School, Bloomberg took part in the Distinguished Speakers Series. The moderator asked him if it’s possible to unite Americans who live in different parts of the country.
Bloomberg said one of the biggest issues preventing unification is that blue-collar workers have an inability to adapt to technology, stating “I can teach anyone how to be a farmer.”
Bloomberg, who has spent his life working cushy office jobs, obviously has no idea how hard America’s farmers work to provide food for our country. Let’s see him spend just one day in the boots of a farmer and see if he still thinks it’s so easy.
