CNN comments after the Democrat primary debate about former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg tells you everything you need to know about his chances in being the Democratic presidential nominee.
CNN commentator Van Jones went on full blast when discussing Bloomberg’s performance, he called him a “billion-dollar machine Titanic [meeting] iceberg Elizabeth Warren.”
Jones said that Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is trying to get back into the race, “took over” and “prosecuted him revealing Bloomberg is tone-deaf on every one of his policies.
“His answer on women was terrible,” Jones said. “He got completely destroyed on the NDA question.”
During the debate, Bloomberg was asked about a comment he made in a lawsuit filed against him in the 90s when he told a pregnant executive that she should kill her baby and compared her to another woman and said if she looked like her “I would do you in a second.”
“Let me tell you what I do in my company, in my foundation, and in city government when I was there,” Bloomberg said. “In my foundation, the person who runs it is a woman, while 70 percent of people there are women … In city hall, my deputy mayor was a woman, and 40 percent of our commissioners were women.”
I’m sorry all I heard was binders of women.
Warren snapped back, saying, “I hope you heard what his defense was: ‘I’ve been nice to some women,’ that just doesn’t cut it.”
The Senator from Massachusetts also obliterated Bloomberg over placing nondisclosure agreements on victims of his sexual harassment.
“Mr. Mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from their NDAs so we can hear their side of the story?” she said.
Bloomberg claimed the NDA’s were established between consenting parties “for everybody’s interest.”
“This is also a question about electability. We are not going to defeat Donald Trump with a man who has ‘who knows’ how many NDAs and the drip, drip, drip of stories of women saying they have been harassed and discriminated against,” Warren concluded.
The next debate is scheduled for February 25th in South Carolina. It seems to me that Bloomberg doesn’t like to be roughed up and it was clear he doesn’t have anyone working for him to prep him for situations as he faced during the debate. “Mini Mike,” thought he was going to walk in the park and clearly the other candidates who want to win are going for his throat.
