Bloomberg launches counterattack at Trump, Twitter feud escalates and gets personal

(White House/State Department)

Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, finally responded this week to President Donald Trump’s frequent height jokes, but sadly, his response seemed immensely lacking and made little sense.

He calls me Little Mike and the answer is, Donald, where I come from we measure your height from your neck up,” he said at a campaign rally in North Carolina early Thursday morning.

Listen:

It was completely unclear to some what that even meant. First of all, there is no “answer” because the president never asked a question. Second of all, measuring someone’s height from the neck up would mean measuring them by the size of their head.

Was Bloomberg basically trying to imply the president possesses a small head? If so, why would he say that, and why would having a small head be a bad thing?

The belief is that he’d been referencing the size of Trump’s brain, as if to suggest the president is an idiot. However, his delivery needed some polish to go up against Trump.

Regardless, the Democrat presidential candidate doubled down shortly thereafter.

“So I’m not afraid of Donald Trump and that’s why he keeps tweeting about me,” he reportedly said. “The ways you can tell he’s worried is if he mentions you. He’s a narcissist and he understands name is everything and if you really want to annoy him say ‘that person,’ don’t say Donald Trump.”

The remarks were reportedly made after the president posted the following tweets early Thursday morning:

Look:

He called Bloomberg a “loser,” dissed his debate skills (or the lack thereof), compared him to failed 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, criticized his poor relations with the black community and of course took shots at his height again.

It doesn’t get any clearer than that …

Bloomberg also tried responding directly on Twitter, but just like his campaign statements, his Twitter zinger seemed to make little sense:

According to reports, the president inherited roughly $413 million from his father over the course of decades. Yet these days Trump is worth an estimated $3.1 billion. It’s not clear how septupling one’s worth is equivalent to having “squandered it” …

About twenty minutes later, the confused candidate dropped a meme:

As of noon Thursday, the president had not yet responded to Bloomberg’s latest trash-talking. His supporters, on the other hand, had.

Look (*Language warning):

The allegations of racism stemmed from inartful remarks he’d made in 2015 in defense of the stop-and-frisk policies he’d maintained in NYC during his time in office.

“Ninety-five percent of murders — murderers and murder victims — fit one M.O.,” he’d said in the just-resurfaced comments. “You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops.”

“They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city (inaudible). And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.”

The president has for his part been bashing “Little Mike” for months now.
