#2 Funny that he pretended to be this great economy guy and all he did was burn a bunch of his own money to get no traction at all.

#3 This clown made his $$$ off of a) the 2- and 20 carried interest scam and b) a fossil-fuels commodity boom ... and then ran for office opposing fossil fuels and billionaires.

What a shithead.

#4 Lovely of him and the others to donate so much money to trickle around and through the economy, to the benefit of all, and all they got out of it was some rubber chicken dinners and t-shirts. Who needs increased taxes on the wealthy when they’re so eager to give their money away so beneficially?

#5 at his last big campaign event he and his wife and daughter danced to back that azz up

a song about a prostitute who successfully obtains black clients (uses the n-word numerous times)

#9 This guy has zero political instincts and it shows. Glad he pissed away untold millions on this vanity project.

"Honestly, I can't see a path where I can win the presidency,"

You can't see what's not there. (That's some Zen shit or something.).

#10 It appears as if Steyer is actually getting one delegate as he exceeded 15% in SC's 6th congressional district.

So, his 1 delegate will cost upward of $200 (possibly close to $300) Million which beats Jed Bush's 3 delegates for about $150 Million in 2016.

Hat tip to Rantingly for this picture and caption. I thought it says it all.

#14 We won't have Butt-gig to sodomize anymore. Until he runs for Senate next year.

#16 The original BBC headline was "Buttigeig Pulls Out". Which was an image I didn't need.

#18 Glad he pissed away untold millions on this vanity project.

I salute him. It was a huge (if temporary) boost to Nevada's economy. Every billionaire with no charisma should be encouraged to run for president as a form of wealth redistribution.

#19 For the $3300+ Steyer spent for every vote he got, he could have handed out walking money, got 100 times more votes and still spent less money.

#21 Has anyone seen Hamlet? At this point I see the Democratic party as the royal family of Denmark, and Trump as Fortinbras entering the castle.

For me, with sorrow I embrace my fortune.
I have some rights of memory in this kingdom
Which now, to claim my vantage doth invite me.

"Anyone here? It looks like a battlefield in here! Everyone's dead. Whose in charge? Nobody? I guess that would be me then."
