Talking Snake Media is ignoring a video of Michael Bloomberg from 2016. Here is the money quote:
“I could teach anybody, even people in this room so no offense intended, to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that.”
