Trump brilliantly attacks Mini Mike



The New York Post reported, "Trump taunts ‘Mini Mike’ Bloomberg’s height."

Saul Alinsky tactics just melded with President Donald John Trump strategy.

The tactics are simple: Ridicule the opponent, and entertain your supporters.

The Post reported, "President Trump went after 'Mini Mike' Bloomberg in a series of tweets early Sunday morning and in a preview of a pre-Super Bowl interview, claiming the former New York mayor wants a box to stand on during a Democratic presidential debate.

"'Mini Mike is now negotiating both to get on the Democrat Primary debate stage, and to have the right to stand on boxes, or a lift, during the debates,' the president posted on his Twitter account in the last of three postings about 5-foot-8 Michael Bloomberg. 'This is sometimes done, but really not fair!'"

Mini Mike's campaign shot back, "He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan."

Yawn.

Mini Mike is not the target. Democrat voters are. President Trump is courting supporters of the candidates who will not win the nomination. They are ticked because the DNC just changed its rules, which will enable Daddy Snorebucks to qualify for the next debate. President Trump is exploiting that.

Jeff Weaver, a senior adviser to Sanders, said, "To now change the rules in the middle of the game to accommodate Mike Bloomberg, who is trying to buy his way into the Democratic nomination, is wrong."

The rule change means Bloomberg does not have to have a bunch of donors to qualify. Michael Moore said, "He doesn't have to show that he has any support amongst the American people. He can just buy his way onto the debate stage!"

In attacking Mini Mike's height (or lack thereof) President Trump brought attention to the DNC rigging its rules for the debate. And he used humor to get the point across. Why not let him stand on a box?

Contrast this to how Elizabeth Warren attacked Mini Mike.

Politico reported, "Warren and other liberal supporters argued Bloomberg needs a proper vetting, particularly since his media company has been instructed not cover the Democratic primary. Some have urged the DNC to reconsider its rules to allow him to participate, and Warren has also been critical of a nondisclosure agreement women at his company signed that bar them from discussing legal claims they filed. She believes they should be released from the gag order."

Vetting? Paperwork? Oh hers will be a presidency from DMV.

If President Trump simply complained about the rule change, most of the media would ignore him.

But he gave the baboons of the Fourth Estate a reason to go bananas, and so they once again act in high dudgeon at his error...



...and broadcasting his message out to the people.

Meanwhile, the president's supporters get another laugh at Mayor Nanny's expense.

Babylon Bee hardest hit.

  2. As a New Yorker who voted for Mini-Mike twice, but grew to despise him when he bought a third term despite the term limits law, it is clear that the short one is a dangerous, dangerous man. He thinks far too highly of himself and wants to impose his own beliefs on a nation just as he tried to do to a city.

    If he gets the Dem nod, I think the President must insist that he too gets a box if the short one does.

    (True box story. Many years ago I was at an event in NYC at which the late great Queens DA, Richard A. Brown, was present. The judge, as we knew him because of his long service as a jurist before becoming DA, was about 5 feet tall so when it was his turn to speak, he stood on a box behind the podium. Well, so did 6'5" then governor George Pataki. 'nuff said).

    1. And I’ll take that large Big Gulp while I’m at it.

      Big Mike’s school lunch program will look like a five star meal compared to Mini Mike’s menu.

    2. Bloombean has small man's disease. With non-billionaires this usually manifests itself as false bravado, and failing that, angry bouts of drinking. I am a mere 5'7" myself, so I sorta get it. I have entertained the thought of taking up alcohol, but I am too cheap to buy it.

    3. And your salt as well. Unsalted french fries! Sodium-free tofu! Yummy!

      And hello Obesity. The body craves salt. The saltier their food, the less people eat. Hideyoshi learned this centuries ago. The salt-free craze, together with the food pyramid fat bad/protein bad/carbs good combined with the replacement of cane sugar with corn sugar are the main drivers behind the obesity/diabetes II 'epidemic'.

  4. I noticed all the nice things Trump was saying about Cory Booker and how the Dems refused to change the rules for Booker compare/contrast with Mini Mike. Interesting that Trump saw Cory Booker supporters as the first ones he could start to peel off.

  5. Billionaire envy is real. Must really spook Trump to face a real billionaire who doesn't need to grovel to oligarchs & dictators.

    1. "a real billionaire who doesn't need to grovel to oligarchs & dictators." Thats because Bloomberg is an oligarch and using his money to buy an election so he can become a dictator and tell us what to eat and what we can or can not buy..Big Gulp ring a bell

    2. 'who doesn't need to grovel to oligarchs & dictators'

      This is the same Bloomberg who claimed that Xi was a freely elected dictator and defended China's trade practices. Because he is heavily invested in Tyrant Xi's realm.

      And Obama bowed to any number of Muslim kings and tyrants.

      No, because he needed both hands to hold the cup.

  8. Trump isn't aiming for votes from Bernie supporters (otherwise he wouldn't be calling him Crazy Bernie). Trump is cleverly throwing incendiary bombs into the Dem nomination process. Bernie bros will literally burn down the Dem convention if he is cheated again. If Bernie gets the nomination, the Dem party loses in a McGovern sized landslide. So much winning!!!!

  9. At his Des Moines rally he mentioned Mini Mike and, pointing out his mid-chest with his hand, he said, Mini Mike... I've had him up to here.. I'm still laughing over that one! (It's 6:06:50 on the video)

    2. And CNN went and fact checked it for Trump just to keep it in the news cycle a little longer.

      They really don't get what Trump does. It would take a heap of self examination which the media just doesn't have.

    3. Every once in a while they exhibit awareness that Trump is playing them like an orange organ grinder - he calls the tune and the monkeys dance to it.

      They promise that they will stop freaking out about everything Trump says and does. The tell themselves that this time will be different.

      Then Trump shoots out a tweet and they freak out. Dance, monkeys! Dance!!

  13. Note it wasn't Mikey who retorted. He knows he's not in Trump's class when it comes to the dozens. He's been an elite too long. Too much money. Thinks he's smarter than the rest because sometimes he was right and sometimes he was lucky.

    Billionaires do it all the time. Celebs do the same thing. Because they're famous they think they got there all by themselves thus they're geniuses.

    NOT! Mike's afraid of actually allowing people to judge him on him personally. He has little personality. His only qualification is his money.

  14. James Comey proved that HEIGTH has no bearing on ability! I understand PRESIDENT TRUMP'S attack on Bloomy and the fact that Bloomy DID NOT understand it is more reason why he should not be President! Well, that and his insane ideas about what America should be!

  15. The brilliance of the "Mini Mike" label is it works on several levels. It is not so much that Bloomberg is short. He is also petty-minded, in other works mentally short. He lacks breadth of vision - he is short sighted. And - outside the field in which he made his fortune, his accomplishments are small.

    Mini on so many levels.

  16. Is this author just figuring it out now? Kind of slow isn't he? Got God's sake everybody else realized it the moment he announced.
    Trump may have been a bit naive politically to start but he's a fast learner and now with some four years of experience at the game he's going to slaughter whatever Demonrat emerges from their self inflicted chaos and it's going to be hilarious to watch.
