Billionaire Bloomberg Vows Revenge On Trump, Over A Box?
Billionaire Presidential Candidate Bloomberg has been trying his best to buy his way into the election, and so far it is working since some polls show he is just behind Warren. So Trump properly welcomed him to the race by ribbing him about how he wants a box to stand on during the debates. Turns out Bloomberg is on the shorter side and he is a bit sensitive about it. Bloomberg did not take the jab lightly and now vows to do everything in his power to defeat Trump. That seems short-sighted...
"Democrat presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is reportedly “fuming” over President Donald Trump’s attacks on his height and is preparing to enact his revenge against the president for the attacks.
Trump, who has repeatedly referred to Bloomberg as “mini Mike,” hit the former New York City mayor hard during a Fox News interview that aired during the Super Bowl pre-game show when asked by Sean Hannity what the first thing was that came to his mind when it came to each of the top Democrat presidential candidates.
When Trump was asked about Bloomberg, he said, “Uh, very little. I just think of little. You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. Okay, it’s okay, there’s nothing wrong. You can be short. Why should he get a box to stand on, okay? He wants a box for the debates. Why should he be entitled to that? Really. Does that mean everyone else gets a box?”
Apparently Bloomberg did not take this jab lightly and reports from inside his campaign claim he is pissed.
"SCOOP-inside the @MikeBloomberg campaign advisers say Bloomy is fuming over @realDonaldTrump’s attacks, mocking of his height. BBG now says he will fund even @BernieSanders to beat Trump. He plans to ramp up the personal attacks vs Trump through even more pointed TV ads."
A Spokesperson for Bloomberg responded in kind, I guess Bloomberg was too busy, claiming Trump is fake.
“The president,” Bloomberg spokeswoman Julie Wood said, “lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”
Bloomberg later claimed that Trump was only coming after him out of fear. Trump has yet to respond to the slights.
It sounds like some Napoleon complex there. But it is odd that Bloomberg would be upset about a height comment, according to google he is 5'8." So two inches shorter than the average white male. It's not like he is a dwarf or little person. But as per usual Trump has found the perfect way to handle an opponent and knows how to get under their skin.
