Political commentator Mark Steyn shared his take on former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and suggested he was “planted into the Democrat race” for a reason.
The best-selling author spoke with Fox News host Tucker Carlson Thursday about the previous night’s Democratic presidential debate, jabbing at Bloomberg as a “Russian asset.”

“Mark, you watched last night. So many levels of awfulness. But how would you assess what you saw?” Carlson asked about the debate in Las Vegas on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“I think the best explanation for Bloomberg is that he is, in fact, a Russian asset who has been planted into the Democrat race to make Joe Biden look forceful and vigorous,” Steyn replied.
“You’ve said that he spent $460 million to wind up on stage, talking about nondisclosure agreements,” he added, referring back to previous comments from the Fox News host.
“I understand, by the way, that since the debate, he’s asked everyone that watched the debate to sign a nondisclosure agreement,” he joked before turning to Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s attack on Bloomberg for remarks he had made about women decades ago.
“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against, a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians,” Warren said at the outset of the debate. “And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump, I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”

“You have to hand to it the Cherokee dominatrix,” Steyn remarked. “She won’t be the candidate but she uttered that phrase, ‘horse-faced lesbians,’ which hasn’t been used in a presidential debate since Grover Cleveland.”
Bloomberg “stood there looking horse-faced himself, unable to respond to it,” Steyn added, noting how the Massachusetts Democrat was able to “fillet” the billionaire.
“Then she starts going on about nondisclosure agreements. He won’t disclose how many nondisclosure agreements he signed,” he continued before poking fun at former Vice President Joe Biden with an impression.
“Eventually, it’s such a lively debate, miracle of miracles, Joe Biden wakes up and starts having a swing — ‘Come on, man. God love you man,'” Steyn said.
“Bloomberg is the biggest disaster on the stage,” Steyn said, contending that if Bloomberg goes against Trump in November in a sort of billionaire versus billionaire set up, he won’t stand a chance.
“People are going to go with the billionaire who isn’t like this guy,” he said, offering a colorful defense of the president.
Trump was not the “creature of courtiers” who “don’t dare tell the sultan that he’s going to have to come up with an explanation as to why so many of the girls in the harem had to sign nondisclosure agreements,” Steyn said.
Carlson concluded the segment by remarking that it was “probably the best summary I’ve heard of American politics.”
Twitter users applauded Steyn’s “knock-out punches” of the 2020 Democratic candidates.
Fantastic political comedy tonight by Steyn! What knock out punches Steyn leveled upon all the miserable debaters from last night!
