Posted on 02/19/2020 6:40:12 PM PST by Helicondelta
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.

Mike’s head is really big.
I watched a little of it, after a half hour, I couldn’t take any more.
Switched to the Trump rally.
He got his box!
The funniest thing about it is that all those criticisms from other Democrats are completely valid.
Mini Mike is tanking under the assault by his fellow Democrats. Pretty entertaining.
"Ah Hell no gir'friend! I know you ain't (snappin fingers) tryin' to buy this Presidency boyfriend! We ain'th havingth it!"
I’m watching the debate. Bloomberg almost literally looks like the proverbial deer caught in the headlights—total doe eyes. Liawatha and Bugger Biden are having a good night due to landing punches against him. They almost look like bullies because Bloomberg looks so out of his league against them.
which hasn’t at this time happened
very dark, morose
needed some light
That is not this debate.
That is not this debate.
Where/what is thar?
Our girl Amy is very whiny. After seeing this I’m less concerned about her. Warren is actually less shrill than her. Trump would eat Amy in a debate.
Butt plug is pathetic and looks 12 years old.
I’m don’t know how rats think but if I was one Amy and Butt Plug sure wouldn’t be getting my vote based on this.
Take a break, give them each a knife.
Time for round 2.
This is a circular firing squad. Enjoy the show!
OK, give me the Cliff Notes here: Who crawled away from this dumpster fire still intact, if anyone?
Bloomberg showing his age and seems robotic in his answers to questions he should have anticipated; Biden looks and talks sharper than usual; Warren comes across as a fighter; Buttigieg is like the even tempered relative who steers the argument to less volatile topics. I can’t stand any of them but that is my take.
