Fox News Greg Gutfeld criticized former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for telling a college commencement crowd that the "greatest threat to American democracy" is political dishonesty."The greatest threat to American democracy isn't Communism or jihadism... It is our own willingness to tolerate dishonesty in service of party and in pursuit of power."Gutfeld said Bloomberg's words were likely directed at his fellow Big Apple billionaire, President Donald Trump.Bloomberg was elected in the aftermath of 9/11 as a Republican to replace term-limited Rudolph Giuliani (R). He later became an Independent. Gutfeld wondered aloud whether then-Mayor Bloomberg was more concerned with political dishonesty versus terrorism after two jets took down the Twin Towers in his city.
