Bloomberg’s Max Abelson said that billionaire Tom Steyer looks like someone who is planning on running for president in 2020, adding “he looks like a guy who just can’t resist it” during an interview with Bloomberg Radio on Thursday.

Abelson followed Steyer around for several weeks, before writing an expose for Bloomberg titled “Call Him Mr. Impeachment: Tom Steyer’s War Against Donald Trump.

The Bloomberg Radio host asked Abelson whether he thinks Steyer is running for elected office in the future, after having spent so much time with him.

“I think he might run in 2020. He looks like a guy who just can’t resist it,” Abelson said. “I mean he won’t say what he wants to do. But he’s got a body man around him who carries around his iced tea.”

Abelson then said that Steyer had surrounded himself and his staff with veterans from former President Obama’s campaigns.

“I mean he’s built up what really looks like a machine, like an election machine,” Abelson said.

Abelson then told a story about Steyer has taken to wearing cowboy boots now.

“One thing I would say, I’ve learned about spending time with him, is he thinks Trump is this sort of narcissist who listens to no one. The thing I got from Tom Steyer is he has his own version of that,” Abelson said. “I’ve never seen anyone laugh at his own joke for 12 seconds straight.”
