An awkward video of presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is making its rounds on social media. In 2006, Bloomberg performed at the Inner Circle Show, where he had the role of Mary Poppins.

In the video clip, the then NYC Mayor Bloomberg is flying with his umbrella as he tells the audience, “I’ll tell you where I’m going. First, Iowa. Then New Hampshire. Maybe I can get the whole country to behave!”

Jack Allison shared the video on twitter with an appropriate caption, “insanely ominous footage.” Many are finding this both humorous and painfully awkward.


Last week, the Drudge Report wrote Bloomberg was considering Hillary Clinton as a running mate “after their polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be a formidable force…” But CNN reported it’s not going to happen, Bloomberg is far from the lead, “let alone winning, the race for the Democratic nomination.”

Here’s more of Bloomberg. Warning: You can’t unsee this.
