Bloomberg Faces Searing Attacks At Free-For-All Democratic Debate
nbcnews.com ^ | Feb. 20, 2020

The Democratic presidential debate Wednesday night kicked off with fireworks, as every person on stage not named Mike Bloomberg attacking the former New York City mayor, who was participating in his first presidential face off.

The first hit at the NBC/MSNBC two-hour debate here came from frontrunner Bernie Sanders, who ripped Bloomberg for his record as mayor.

Next to swing at Bloomberg was Elizabeth Warren, who took aim at the mayor's past critical statements about women.

"I'd like to talk about who we're running against. A billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians,' and, no, I'm not talking about Donald Trump,” Warren said. "I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg."

Amy Klobuchar took her shot next.

"I've been told many times to wait my turn and to step aside," she said. "And I'm not going to do that now, and I'm not going to do that because a campaign memo from Mayor Bloomberg said, this morning, that the only way we get a nominee is if we step aside for him," she said.

Moments later, Pete Buttigieg offered his criticism for Bloomberg

"Let's put someone forward who is actually a Democrat," Buttigieg said.

We’re watching it. First Dem debate I’ve EVER watched, seriously. It’s pretty entertaining.

Bloomberg is done. The stake was pounded into him tonight. He’s a stuttering old commie.

“””””””Our girl Amy is very whiny. After seeing this I’m less concerned about her.”””””””””

She has never had to work to win an election. She has never had to accomplish anything in order to get re-elected.
The Minnesota press takes care of that for her.

They need to cut Cuck Todd’s mike after he asks a question. he’s awful.

Now they are confusing UHI heat from concrete and watered lawns and golf courses with CO2 caused “global warming”.

CO2 isn’t making Las Vegas and Phoenix hotter. That’s concrete and water vapor. Dumb.

DNC candidates eviscerating one another. Most fun ever. Hope Trump’s folks are taking notes on the attacks that are left undefended. They are all losers.

One can picture an “Orient Express” version on this with Bloomberg as the murder victim. They sure have the attitudes and the knives are out.

Doomberg is a lot of things, real racist, arrogant as hell, no understanding of how he appears to the voting public but not a commie. He is the quintessential capitalist worth billions. He would DEFINITELY screw the little guy.

Warren is top performer in this debate.

Her aggressive style works in the Smaller group

Creepy leftist

It’s fun to watch when they hit Bloomberg. Unwatchable when they aren’t. Just a clown show.

Well at least she believes in restrictions on abortion during the third trimester. That is something. But, of course, Mayor Pete said that there is no room for such a woman in the democratic party. Oh well.

because Bloomberg looks so out of his league against them.

That was my first thought as soon as I heard he would make the debates - he is lousy on stage and the public will be turned off, even without the attacks.

“I watched a little of it, after a half hour, I couldn’t take any more.”

This is the first “debate” I watched - I feel slimed. I’m going to have to take a shower.

Bloomberg looked pathetic. He has no chance.

There are too many winners. Even old Joe has vim and vinegar.

Buttgig & Bloomberg might be the only losers (because one is light weight and the other is A-hole).

WIth many winners, the BIG winner is Trump.

Super Tuesday will be a Cluster**** for the Democrat party. Bernie will have a Plurality after Super Tuesday and Trump is well on his way to winning 40 states.
