Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has toyed with the idea of running for President, has been quoted in a new book as having said, “If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdale’s.”

The new book “The Many Lives of Michael Bloomberg” by Eleanor Randolph makes this and many other controversial claims about the history of the billionaire former mayor.

Bloomberg once reportedly told a pregnant female employee to ‘kill it!’ when she announced her pregnancy, and was forced to settle a lawsuit over the remark. Sales executive Sekiko Garrison, the employee who was told to kill her baby, and three other women filed sexual harassment suits against Bloomberg LP.

In a deposition, Bloomberg allegedly said of one female employee “I’d do her.

Early this year, Bloomberg told The Washington Post he found President Trump’s style “offensive.”

“There’s an attitude, and a style, and lack of civility that I think is bad for the country, and I find offensive,” said Bloomberg.

The new book on Bloomberg contains accusations that he has called women “meat.”

“I really liked Michael and I think he liked me, but it went really strangely haywire once I ran for office,” said President Trump earlier this year.

According to the new book, Bloomberg has boasted about having a “girl in every city,” talked easily “about women’s cleavage,”  and said females need to wear high heels.

Bloomberg also reportedly asked an engaged female employee,”What, is the guy dumb and blind? What the hell is he marrying you for?”

A week later Bloomberg followed that comment with, “Still engaged? What, is he that good in bed, or did your father pay him off to get rid of you?”
