FoxNews.com reports that
Elizabeth Warren shamed Mike Bloomberg for allegedly calling women “fat broads.”
Amy Klobuchar asked Pete Buttigieg if he was calling her “dumb.”
Bloomberg swiped at Bernie Sanders by quipping that “the best-known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses.”
The Democrats’ showdown Wednesday night in Las Vegas repeatedly put Bloomberg in his primary rivals’ crosshairs as the surging billionaire made his debate-stage debut. But the conflagration quickly expanded into an all-out melee and easily the most aggressive debate of the nomination season to date, as each of the candidates took sharp and often personal shots at one another.
The fight started out white-hot when, in her first turn at the microphone, Warren asserted that she would support whoever wins the nomination, but warned that Democrats “take a huge risk if we just substitute one arrogant billionaire for another.”
She said the field is running against somebody “who calls women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians — and no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump, I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”
As some attendees cheered, she added, “We are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women, and of supporting racist policies like redlining and stop-and-frisk.” (Bloomberg strongly denied supporting redlining, or systematically denying services to certain neighborhoods).
Warren, after a disappointing fourth-place finish in New Hampshire, was particularly combative on stage as she tangled with multiple rivals in a bid to distinguish herself once more ahead of the Nevada caucuses this weekend.
In another explosive moment, attendees erupted in the hall when Warren called on Bloomberg to release women from nondisclosure agreements they have signed concerning their civil complaints that he harassed them in the workplace.
“Mr. Mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements, so we can hear their side of the story?” Warren asked, to thunderous applause.
“We have very few nondisclosure agreements,” Bloomberg meekly responded. “None of them accused me of doing anything — except, maybe they didn’t like a joke I told.” The audience then booed loudly.
“It was agreements between two parties that wanted to keep it quiet, and that’s up to them. They signed those agreements, and we’ll live with it,” Bloomberg said.
The audience continued to boo Bloomberg as he repeatedly declined to waive the agreements on stage during the discussion, even after Biden yelled that it would be easy to do so.
Amid calls to release his tax returns, Bloomberg drew more jeers by saying it “takes a long time” and that he “can’t go to Turbo Tax,” and that he would be releasing them “in a few weeks.” (“We’ve heard that before,” Amy Klobuchar mused, referring to the president.)
Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, warned that Bloomberg couldn’t be elected because he wouldn’t be able to assemble a diverse coalition of voters.
He also called it “immoral” that Bloomberg had vast wealth while homelessness remained a problem.
“Mr. Bloomberg had policies in New York City of stop-and-frisk that went after African American and Latino people in an outrageous way,” Sanders said.
“I don’t think there’s any chance of the senator beating President Trump,” Bloomberg responded flatly. He would go on to slam communism, saying Sanders’ apparent disdain for capitalism would be catastrophic for Democrats in November. Sanders called the “communism” reference a “cheap shot,” insisting that he is accurately described as a democratic socialist.
“What a wonderful country we have!” Bloomberg said. “The best-known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What’d I miss here?”
“I work in Washington,” Sanders began.
“That’s the first problem,” Bloomberg retorted.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the Democrats are so screwed.
Their top three potential candidates for President are a Marxist, a snobbish oligarch, and a guy with dementia.
And, all three are limited in voter appeal.
Bernie Sanders is a throwback to the old Soviet Politburo Officials, preaching Marxism’s “share the wealth for the good of the State” while living in a mansion while the Proletariat starves and stands in line for horrible toilet paper.
Michael Bloomberg has already alienated just about every American voter with comments he made in the past concerning our lack of work ethic and just plain ignorance.
And then, there’s “Sleepy” Joe Biden…”Chuck, stand up! Let them see you!” Of course, Chuck was in a wheelchair. The sad thing is the fact that Joe has gotten worse with age since then, sometimes not even knowing what city he was speaking in. And, this is the guy that Americans should put in charge of the “Nuclear Football”? Are you kidding me?
As news outlets have been reporting, the Democratic Party Elite are desperate to somehow prevent Bernie Sanders from becoming their Presidential Candidate because they know that the overwhelming majority of Americans will not willingly vote for the old Communist.
So, who will they attempt to push into that spot?
Bloomberg? He proved without a doubt last night that money cannot buy charisma. Plus, he has too much baggage. Evidently, like Mitt Romney, Bloomie has “binders full of women”.
Biden? Heck, Obama won’t even endorse him. Biden never accomplished anything in his decades on Capitol Hill and his stint as Vice-President. Why would he start now?
Each one of these three stooges would be absolutely annihilated in a Presidential Debate by President Donald J. Trump.
Quite honestly, if the Russian Collusion Hoax and Pelosi’s Sham Impeachment only made Trump’s popularity poll numbers rise, does the Democrat Hierarchy actually believe that any of these three losers stand a chance to bring them the Presidency next November?
If they do, they need to stop drinking with Nancy Pelosi.
Until He Comes,
