Is Michael Bloomberg gay?

(I searched…no hits on this subject.)

I’m a few weeks behind on my The Daily Show viewing, and I just watched the episode for the date that Michael Bloomberg announced his party affiliation change. I was agog at Jon Stewart’s reaction–he used the word “FAAAbulous”, and said that Bloomberg was a “Jewish…effete…Jew…bachelor…candi-jew”.

This kind of struck me as coming out of left field (but then, I don’t live in NYC). Not that Bloomberg is Jewish (well, duh) but that Stewart was using all the code words to imply that he’s gay.

Is he?

Bloomberg was married for 19 years and has been seen dating a number of women since he got divorced, so it seems rather unlikely.

No, Ed Koch was the gay Jewish mayor of NYC.

And like the Highlander, there can be only one.

He used to be a Democrat, too. :wink:

Come on, we don’t know Koch is gay. He firmly insists he’s in the closet whenever asked.

Stewart was probably making (or trying to make) fun of what someone else might say about Bloomberg.

Bloomberg is not gay. Before becoming mayor, he had quite a reputation as a . . . I don’t know what the word I should use is. . . ladies’ man? Hound dog? Skirt chaser?

In addition, at one time I knew quite a few people who worked at Bloomberg LP while he was still there. Many of them were women. He is definitely not gay.

Then we know he swings both ways. With the recent party switch again, make that three ways. :stuck_out_tongue:

I like Jon Stewart, but effete doesn’t mean what he thinks it means.

  1. lacking in wholesome vigor; degenerate; decadent: an effete, overrefined society.

  2. exhausted of vigor or energy; worn out: an effete political force.

  3. unable to produce; sterile.

Although I could see how #1 (maybe even #3 :smiley: ) might be twisted into that meaning.

I live in New York, and although I’ve heard the rumblings of that rumor, supposedly Michael Bloomberg is not gay.

Here’s what Michael McClure–er–Bloomberg said about it recently:

Did you see Shortbus? He had a cameo as himself, and removes all doubt.

please just because someone was married for 19 years does not mean a thing!
those women are probably covers. My gaydar says GAY!

Well, if your gaydar says so, then.

Per wikimarried 19 years, 2 daughters, reputation as something of a poon hound in his earlier years.

Conclusion? > Gay, so gay.

why would it matter? mind your own business!

Is he a Scientologist? Chapter 1 of the Handbook of Possible Closeted Gay Celebrities (HPCGC) is all about converting to Scientology.

That wasn’t him.

The other day I saw him laughing so that proves he’s gay (as in happy)

And I’ve also have heard him talk in circles so that proves he’s gay (as in lame)

But gay as in sleeps with guys? Well it was just the one time and he didn’t inhale :smiley:

You’re not wrong, but it’s nobody’s business that Charlie Sheen wrecked a hotel room. But it’s fun to know :slight_smile:
