Trump mocks 'Mini Mike' Bloomberg's height by crouching down behind podium at CPAC, leaves audience in splits
President Donald Trump ripped into former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Saturday, this time taking aim at his stature and leaving the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland in splits.
Trump spoke about the pounding the 5’7″ Democratic presidential candidate received from his rival Senator Elizabeth Warren at his first debate in Las Vegas last week, the New York Post reports.
“She was really mean to Mini Mike,” the POTUS said. “The way she treated him, he didn’t know what hit him."
“He’s going, ‘Oh, get me off of this stage',” Trump said, before crouching down behind the podium so only the top of his head could be seen. You can check out the hilarious moment here. “Get me off! Get me off of this stage!” he mimicked.
“It’s true. It’s true,” Trump remarked as the crowd couldn't stop laughing.
That said, Warren's attacks on Bloomberg on Tuesday also mentioned Trump.
“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against: a billionaire who calls women ‘fat broads’ and ‘horse-faced lesbians,’” the Massachusetts senator railed at the debate. “And, no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”
The US commander-in-chief tore into Bloomberg's debate performance as he addressed the fired-up crowd at CPAC. "I think he's out of it," he said. "I know him well. That was probably the worst debate performance in the history of presidential debates."
Many believe the Las Vegas debate was a total debacle for the financial giant billionaire, especially after he was constantly attacked by Warren for trapping some of his female employees under NDAs after they accused him of allowing sexual harassment to continue unchecked in the workplace. She also criticized his 'stop and frisk' policy while he was mayor of New York City.
Trump also mocked Bloomberg for his Brobdingnagian campaign spending.
"How'd you like to spend $700 million and end up with nothing? Mini Mike," he fired. "But he's going to keep spending the money, I hear his ads stop on Tuesday."
"It just shows you can't buy an election, there's a point at which people say you gotta bring the goods a little bit too, you gotta bring the goods," he asserted.
