All hell is breaking loose in the Democrat Presidential primary.
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg surged to the top of the polls because Democrats thought his $60 billion fortune would bury Donald Trump in November.
But the left just got some bad news because this secret from Mike Bloomberg’s past sent Democrats running for their lives.
For weeks, Bloomberg ran a campaign consisting solely of $400 million dollars in positive TV ads that included ads designed to mislead voters into thinking Barack Obama endorsed him.
Bloomberg also submitted to no major TV interviews or town hall style events where voters could question him.
Fake news reporters – many of whom lived in New York when Bloomberg served as Mayor – were dazzled by his campaign hiring thousands of cutthroat political pros and his campaign carpet-bombing the airwaves with hundreds of millions of dollars in TV ads.
But eventually Bloomberg’s “hide-and-go-seek” strategy has to come to an end.
And it did in disastrous fashion on the Las Vegas debate stage.
Right after the first question of the debate, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren thrashed Bloomberg over a book of quotes attributed to Bloomberg that was given to him as a gift.
“I’d like 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 [President] Donald Trump. I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg,” Warren began.
Warren then cast Bloomberg in the worst light possible for Democrat primary voters – claiming that Bloomberg was just a richer version of Donald Trump.
“Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women, and of supporting racist policies like red lining and stop and frisk,” Warren continued.
That was not all.
Warren sensed Bloomberg’s weakness and honed in for the kill when she ripped the former New York City Mayor for a collection of non-disclosure agreements he paid women to sign to keep quiet about sexual harassment and hostile work place complaints.
Bloomberg fumbled his response with a stilted and muttering answer about how the women signed the agreements and their silence would have to be good enough for everyone involved.
“We have very few non-disclosure agreements,” Bloomberg responded. “None of them accused me of doing anything, other than, maybe they didn’t like a joke I told. These would be agreements between two parties that wanted to keep it quiet and that’s up to them. They signed those agreements and will live with it.”
That certainly wasn’t good enough for Warren – or former Vice President Joe Biden – and Bloomberg’s rivals demanded he take the opportunity right then and there to release these women from their non-disclosure agreements so they could tell their story.
Bloomberg’s answer capped off a disastrous debate performance that one cable news commentator later compared to the Titanic.
“They signed the agreements and that’s what we’re gonna live with,” Bloomberg responded.
Democrats were horrified with Bloomberg’s performance.
Bloomberg bombed in front of 20 million viewers – the largest debate audience of this cycle – and few party elites or rank-and-file voters that tuned in believed Bloomberg could stand up to Donald Trump in the General Election.
This failure by Bloomberg also increased the likelihood that the field would remain fractured into March, which meant socialist Senator Bernie Sanders remained the favorite to accumulate the most delegates throughout Super Tuesday which would put Sanders on a glide path to the nomination.
