In a recent Facebook post, Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg touted how he’s going to dump Trump in November. So just for kicks and grins, I responded with a comment:
“Get many visitors that far from planet earth?”
Shortly thereafter I received this response from “Mike Bloomberg” via Facebook Messenger:
Thanks for responding. We’ll be launching a Messenger experience for Mike’s presidential campaign in the coming days to engage with and hear from as many voters as possible in this vitally important election.
Well, shoot. Who can resist that?
That launched an interesting conversation. Here’s how it went down. “Mike Bloomberg’s” comments are in italics. Mine are in bold. (Is this fun, or what?)
“Riddle me this Batman: Trump 2020!!
,up (sic) up for answering a few quick questions to help Mike’s campaign? (Well. Who can resist that again?)
Like how he thinks he’s going to buy the election?
“Mike Bloomberg” responded with a wave. And asked, “Have you decided which presidential candidate you’ll vote for?” Answers were multiple choice. I said:
Got it. If you’re willing to share, which candidate are you supporting?
Donald J. Trump
Got it. Up for answering a few questions? We’re interested in understanding the views of all voters.
Like how he still thinks he’s gonna buy the election?
Hi there!. (sic) At this stage, how committed are you to voting for Donald Trump in November?
And how do you identify politically?
Got it. Just curious – did you vote for Obama?
You’re kidding right?
Sorry,. (sic) I can’t tell what you mean. Did you vote for Obama?
I am a Conversational Al, helping Mike’s campaign engage with and hear from as many voters as possible. Did you vote for Obama?
How is this relevant?
Thanks! Last question for now. What part of this great country are you proud to call home? (Please share your zip code.)
2nd star to the right and straight on till morning
Sorry, I didn’t quite get that. We were looking for a five-digit U.S. zip code.
Sorry, I don’t know what you mean. We were looking for a five-digit U.S. zip code.
Twinkle, twinkle little star
Okay, thanks for sharing your views! This great country is even better when we can have these kinds of exchanges!
If there’s anything else you’d like us to know about why you plan to vote to re-elect President Trump feel free to share. (Hit “done” when finished.)
The short list:
Booming economy. Constitutional fidelity. 1st and 2nd Amendment champion. Pro life and religious freedom, finally. Solid judicial appointments. National security. Protects Americans. Tough on trade, especially China. Promotes capitalism, not socialism. Not willing to destroy U.S. economy for “climate change.” Rebuilt military after Obama destroyed it. Rolled back Era of Big Government under BHO. Promotes school choice. Not beholden to unions. Exposed puerile pettiness and elitism of Do-Nothing Democrats, especially Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff and Schumer as the Party of Hate.
Why would anyone with half a brain vote otherwise?
I should’ve added Terrifies Democrats. Like this guy:
“Conversational Al” wrapped up with: Okay, I’ve added that to your note, and the option to hit Done.
Just in case you thought you were actually engaging with a real person, I removed all doubt. By hitting Done three times. And whaddya know, got the same exact bot response each time: Thanks,! Take care!”
How can this outfit expect to run a country when they can’t even punctuate properly?
If Someone Wanted To…
Now. If someone wanted to mess with Mike’s head, they might suggest you jump onto Bloomberg’s Facebook page. Drop a comment. Wait for Conversational Al or some other bot to contact you via Messenger. And flood “Al” with Keep America Great messaging.
Yep. Someone just might suggest that…
