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. I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.
Democrats 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.
Don’t think that Elizabeth Warren would do as well against Donald Trump just because she made easy work of Michael Bloomberg. While she was the strongest candidate on the debate stage last night, Donald Trump is in a different league.
Remember The Winner Faces Trump Next
All that money, and Michael Bloomberg couldn’t pay a debate coach to watch this tape over and over again to figure out a way for Bloomberg to prevail over the inevitable questions without looking like he was just directly copying Trump:
When Megyn Kelly hit Trump with the same “War on Women” line of attack Bloomberg faced in Las Vegas, he didn’t wilt. He didn’t helplessly try to minimize it the way Bloomberg responded to Elizabeth Warren’s questions about the NDAs.
Trump didn’t take it seriously at all.
He diffused it with a joke at Rosie O’Donnell’s expense, which Republicans in the audience loved. Kelly visibly had to stifle awe and laughter as the debate audience roared and whistled their approval. Then he decried political correctness gone too far.
This is what Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, or most likely Bernie Sanders is up against. Accept now he’s even more formidable, a sitting president with the full authority of the United States executive vested in him.
Donald Trump didn’t pay people to meme him to the White House. He shatters the distinction between social media and reality. When Trump started running for president in 2020, he was already a living meme.
