Michael Bloomberg dismisses talk of a presidential run
Former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg played it cool when people urged him to run for president at the Hudson River Park annual gala, where he was honored Thursday night.
“He brushed off whispers in the room of a presidential run and gave his signature crooked smile when one table held up signs that read ‘Bloomberg 2020,’ ” a guest told Page Six. Bloomberg sat with fellow honoree Lucy Liu and her “Elementary” co-star Aidan Quinn.
Liu inspired the crowd with her speech about her humble beginnings growing up in Queens. “It was amazing. She talked about growing up with not a lot of money. As kids, they would play handball on the back wall of her friend’s garage. She was grateful for the park because now, her active son has incredible, safe places to play,” a guest told us.
Sandra Bernhard hosted the event, and David Chang was also honored.
