Trump Livid After Mike Bloomberg Says ‘Obese’ Trump is Not Actually a Billionaire (Political Flare link): While most of the 2020 Democratic candidates were in Iowa on Monday night for the first-in-the-nation caucuses, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was campaigning in California. The decision to skip Iowa, with its 41 pledged delegates, looked pretty damn smart on Tuesday after the Iowa Democratic Party deprived all candidates of bragging rights by mucking up the caucuses tally so no results were available as of Tuesday morning.
Bloomberg reiterated his pledge to support whichever Democrat wins, but when CBS News asked if he was motivated by a personal grudge against Trump, Bloomberg said no, he’s said publicly that Trump is “not the right guy for the job” since back in 2016. “The way he treats people, the way he runs an organization, and the way he makes decisions is not good for this country.”
Vanity Fair has described Trump as “melting down” over Bloomberg and his slick ability to get right to Trump’s ego. Trump doesn’t like being called fat. I mean, who does? And Bloomberg isn’t just releasing ads showing that Trump is rather hefty. They are flat-out out saying it.
After coming under a barrage of attacks from the president Sunday, Bloomberg responded by calling Trump a “pathological liar” — standard rhetoric among Democrats. But then his campaign went further. “The president,” Bloomberg spokeswoman Julie Wood said, “lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”
