You know how billionaires like to gab.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg apparently believes President Obama ranks up there on the arrogant quotient. This according to a recent interview with Rupert Murdoch.
According to Murdoch, Bloomberg said, “I never have met in my life such an arrogant man,” after returning from a day of golfing with the President in late August.
ABC News reporter Jake Tapper notes the contrast with the pool report:
“The pool report at the time said that ‘We are told Bloomberg and Obama talked in the clubhouse for about 15 mins about the economy. They then went to the driving range.’
Apparently – at least from a second-hand report – the Obama-Bloomberg convo could have gone better.”
Bloomberg described the conversation he had with Obama as “verbal ping-pong,” Murdoch said in a recent interview with the Australian Financial review.
