Last night’s televised Democrat Debate was quite the show as the remaining candidates did not hold back, clobbering each other for everything from socialism to non-disclosure agreements.
It was latecomer Michael Bloomberg’s first debate appearance which comes as the billionaire spends hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising in the fourteen “Super Tuesday” states.
The on-stage fighting between Sanders & Bloomberg and Buttigieg & Klobuchar often left the other candidates painfully awaiting their turn.
The former Mayor of New York City drew the ire of Sanders supporters by defending capitalism saying,
“We’re not gonna throw out capitalism, we tried that, other countries tried that, it was called communism and it just didn’t work.”
Bloomberg continued by dismissing Sanders’ brand of “democratic socialism”,
“What a wonderful country we have- the best-known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three homes, what did I miss here?”
Elizabeth Warren was on the attack as well, slamming Bloomberg’s wealth & character,
“I want 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.”
At the same time, President Trump held a MAGA Rally in the battleground state of Arizona. Afterward, Trump took to his usual method of airing grievances by labeling the Democrats as un-American posting,
“The Democrat party is the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, socialism, blatant corruption, and the total destruction of your Second Amendment. The Republican Party is the party of the American Worker, the American Family, and the American Dream!”
President Trump went further, targeting fellow billionaire Mike Bloomberg who he has branded as “Mini Mike” saying,
“Mini Mike Bloomberg’s debate performance tonight was perhaps the worst in the history of debates, and there have been some really bad ones. He was stumbling, bumbling and grossly incompetent. If this doesn’t knock him out of the race, nothing will. Not so easy to do what I did!”
