Bloomberg's NY Remarks May Be More Offensive Than Cruz's 'New York Values'

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg made a comment at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night that appears to have been overshadowed by his condemnation of Donald Trump.

“Trump says he wants to run the nation like he’s run his business. God help us,” Bloomberg said during his speech. “I’m a New Yorker, and I know a con when I see one.”

He went on to further criticize Trump's reality show behavior and shady business activity, but let's hang on a second. Did he just slam his home state? Or at least the Big Apple? What exactly did he mean by saying New Yorkers are all too familiar with con artists?

Furthermore, do his remarks not deserve the same amount of scrutiny that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) received after his now infamous "New York values" remarks during the 2016 Republican primary?

Watch below, judging his tone, etc. and decide. Bloomberg's "con" remarks come at 6:27.
