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.

Bloomberg may not of self immolated, but about $300 Million is cash he spent just went poof.
Good thing he’s got more where that came from.
Soon the media will realize the more they televise bloomberg getting pummeled, the more money he gives them.
Its about to get ugly for mini-mike.
Non confrontational, passive aggressive Bernie is going to be the one that is going to appear above it all.
Didn’t watch the first half but would say Mike won it. He had some pretty good shots on Comrade Bernie and Ma Squaw.
Pretty funny line with the biggest socialist is a millionaire with three houses. Bernard lost it on that one.
What tax haven do you live in???
Bloomberg was apparently courting the socialist vote, because he just got publicly owned.
Gabbard is as left-wing crazy as the rest of them.
It’s amazing how many freepers think this leftist is a “moderate.”
I didn't think of that.
And neither did #LittleBigMike's ad guys.
How many Millenials and other ranks is THAT gonna p*ss off?
It’s satisfying to see those idiots attack someone besides the president! And Dumbberg deserves it soooo much!
She earns respect and points for being the one and only Dem name to stand up to the DNC Establishment, especially Hillary, and for at least having 2-3 pro-American views. Yes, she is still on board for 98% of the Left's nutty ideas (she is representing hyper-Left Hawaii, after all), but I would open a door for her and buy her a coffee if I met her on the street... but not for any of the others, LOL
That does not equate to me thinking that she is a "moderate".
Mike was much better in the second half. Look for the exchange with Warren about releasing the women from their NDAs. It is devastating for Bloomberg. The propaganda media may choose to simply ignore it, however.
He had a few good comebacks to Bernie, attacking him over his three houses was fun to watch.
But still hot AF despite her politics and acne scars.
She is the only moderately attractive one, so that influences some opinions.
A very entertaining debate, fun to see Democrats fight. Sanders vs. Bloomberg. Buttigieg vs. Klobuchar. Buttigieg vs. Sanders and Bloomberg. Biden fighting for relevancy. And Elizabeth Warren. I’d hate to see any of these individuals win.
But I have to say that Bloomberg acquitted himself well under pressure. Didn’t lose his cool, kept his composure and didn’t get caught in any traps. Most importantly, kept control of the agenda. I think if Bloomberg were the Democrat candidate, would be a formidable opponent for Trump.
this stuff is truly awesome: these fools aren’t debating how to make our nation better, how to make our workers more secure and wealthier, how to make our nation safer and more secure; no, they’re not doing anything but leveling personal attacks against each other and tearing each other down!
ain’t it grand!
I don’t think he will pull it off, but Bernie is the ONLY one of these clowns that has a chance against Trump.
Mayor Pete is Eddie Haskell
“Bloomberg almost literally looks like the proverbial deer caught in the headlights”
totally predictable, actually ... Farmer Mike probably hasn’t faced serious criticism from someone whom he could simply fire and utterly destroy in at least 60 years ...
