After a campaign ad touted the ex-NYC mayor as incredibly sensitive to the LGBTQ community, a video resurfaced of Bloomberg referring to transgender people as he, she or it and some guy in a dress the second time hes been caught making such comments.
Bloomberg used the language to warn 2020 Democratic hopefuls against stressing transgender issues, arguing that they wouldnt play well in middle America.
If your conversation during a presidential election is about some guy wearing a dress and whether he, she, or it can go to the locker room with their daughter, thats not a winning formula for most people, he said at a Manhattan forum hosted by the Bermuda Development Agency. He delivered a similar remark about a man wearing a dress while making the same point at Oxford in 2016.
Despite the flippant language, his spokesperson said the candidate stands behind transgender rights and understands the transgender community has been under attack for decades and the advance of rights has not been equal."
In April 2002, during his first year as mayor, Mike signed a sweeping transgender civil rights bill into law, the spokesperson told the outlet. His company provides comprehensive health care coverage for his transgender employees......adding, as president, he has a comprehensive plan to secure rights for transgender Americans, including the Equality Act, ensuring transgender people have access to affirming health care, and working to end the crisis of violence against transgender women.

All these reports about Bloomberg speaking the truth are helping him, not hurting him.
Emperors new clothes spoiler
Someone tells the truth that the dude is naked and doesnt echo the talking points that his wardrobe is fabulous material
I agree but it’s good for derision in the Rat party. Fun to watch.

Well, Bloomberg ain’t wrong on this one. But I still ain’t voting for no Democrat. Including this Shrimp Soda Nazi.
It really is pretty darn accurate.
Mmmmmmm......dont think so.
I cant wait to see how many boxes he has to stand on to get even with the other candidates in tonight’s debate.
Well, "it" is pretty darn true.
Bloomberg is betting - and I believe he’s correct - that there are a lot of normal people who vote Democrat.
I hope this "tiptoe" guy is standing beside him.
Oh I agree.
It just strikes the heart of Democrat identity politics.
These leaks are coming from the Sanders side. They need to destroy Bloomberg and Democrat voters will reject anyone who is not aligned with the party line.
With dem voters? A certain group of them, yes.
Not so sure with the bernie and warren supporters.
And the fruit’s supporters might not like this stuff either.
I’s times like this I wish 6’6” De Blobbio was still in the race......to see 5’ Bloom and him standing side by side would be a kick.
Nothing a few million in the right hands won’t fix.
Gee Whats wrong with referring to a pervert somebody as it and some guy in a dress
Pansy eggshell skulls in this society yeah I know its Bloomberg but I have to agree with this if somebody in a dress gets insulted
TFB. Deal with it. Good grief
