Bloomberg campaign: Mike will not be standing on a box at #DemDebate

Bloomberg campaign: Mike will not be standing on a box at #DemDebate

Trump wins the branding war: “Campaign officials tell @NBCNews that Mike Bloomberg will *NOT* stand on a box during tonight’s debate, despite Trump’s repeated claims that he requested one to boost his height”

I can’t get the image of Mike Bloomberg standing on a box out of my head, can you?

That imagery was painted by Trump when he claimed that “Mini Mike” wanted to stand on a box for debates.

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. This is sometimes done, but really not fair!

There’s no evidence that Bloomberg asked for a box for the upcoming debates, but there is evidence he did so during speeches when he was Mayor of New York City.

But as with so much of Trump’s branding, he took something with some relationship to some reality, and turned it into a brand for an opponent. Jeb Bush may not *literally* have had low energy, but Low Energy Jeb was close enough to reality to stick. Same with Crooked Hillary (though the relationship to reality was close there), Little Marco, and most famously, P***hontas Warren.

Bloomberg was furious with the focus on his height, so much so that his campaign retaliated by attacking Trump’s “fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”

This is a fight Trump will win every single time. Just ask Presidents J. Bush, H. Clinton, and M. Rubio.

The best evidence that Trump has won the branding war against Bloomberg is that Bloomberg’s campaign felt to confirm to NBC News that Bloomberg will not be standing on a box at tonight’s Las Vegas debate:

NEW: Campaign officials tell @NBCNews that Mike Bloomberg will *NOT* stand on a box during tonight’s debate, despite Trump’s repeated claims that he requested one to boost his height

Amazing. Trump is having a boxing match with Bloomberg via Twitter. All that time with Vince McMahon has really paid off.

I wonder if Bloomberg really understands how he is being played. 🙂

Bulls eye for Trump.

Wish President Trump would hit Bernie, Warren, Bloomberg, et. al. with this!

Britain’s health services will not give non-emergency care to non-woke people – By Andrea Widburg

The largest cohort of people treated in any medical system is the elderly. In England, beginning in April, those elderly had better watch their mouths, or they’re going to find themselves denied the health care they paid for with their taxes.

Wanna’ bet they provide a shortened podium for Mini Mike?

I didn’t know the name Pocahontas was bleep worthy.

It would be great if someone took out a ruler and measured Bloomberg’s shoe heels.

    Mini Mike is what…. 5 foot 3 inches?


      I know they say he is 5’8″, but I saw a picture of him standing near Hillary and he didn’t look like he was much taller than an inch or two taller. I met Hillary, and I’m only 5’8″ now – thanks to my back compressing, I used to be 5’10”, and I felt I towered over her. They list her as 5’5″ but that has to be wearing high heels. She wasn’t that tall when I stood near her.

      Funny … you read my mind …

      From a parody I haven’t recorded yet – to the tune of “By the time I get to Phoenix” (By the time we vote next November (We’ll be crazy)) …

      And you’ll find mini Mike
      Upon his soap box
      And I mean that quite lit-er-al-ly
      He’s the one the others all must now look up to
      Which is funny ‘cause he’s only five foot three

    And also measured the podium, which will likely be the pipsqueak model.

If he stood on a box and I was another of the candidates, I’d bring up that sitting on a milk crate is against the law in New York.

Obama wanted to downsize the country, now the Dems can downsize the presidency. Bad jokes aside, is Gen. Tom Thumb was a superb candidate I would have voted for him. But Gloomberg follows in the footsteps of two short corporals.

I crack up every time I see this. They seem oblivious to how ridiculous they are, revealing their own literal minded stupidity as they “prove” Trump “lied”. More, please.

“It’s not a box!! It’s 40 extra-large, plastic, soda cups taped together, with a rectangular piece of plywood on top.”

Trump defeats the media and the deep state the same way. It’s a shame that Barr doesn’t understand it (tweeting makes my job more difficult). Maybe Bloomberg now does.

This weirdo deserves a lot of derisive nicknames, and “Bribe ’em Bloomberg” is one.

He’s not going to stand on a box.

He’s going to stand on the stack of money he spent bribing his way to the stage.

he will be standing on a stack of bills, and on the backs of those he bribed so he could appear.

He’s standing on a pile of money…..

The images that come to mind … platform shoes in the 70’s disco era … Hervé Villechaize on Fantasy Island “The Plane! The Plane!” … Tim Conway and his Dorf routine … if Bloomberg gets elected, will the Secret Service use him for dwarf tossing … Randy Neuman’s “(Don’t Want no) Short People (’round here)”

Breaking: More DNC (Soros, Soros) positioning of Mini Mike

Little Mini, Mini Mike won’t go

Things that make you go “Hmmmmmmm…..”

…Mom says:

Bloomie is standing on something – the edge of the podium or something I just caught a glimpse of his feet
wth did biden just say he’s spend 25 million thousand what ? the heck

It looks like they shortened ALL the podiums out of consideration for Mini-Mike. The tops are at the level of the other candidates’ hips!

Mini Mike could have embraced it in a self deprecating way. Come out wearing Disco era six inch platform shoes. That would get a laugh.
Or come onto the stage carrying a REALLY tall box. Something that would require a ladder to climb. Then set it off to the side. Everybody would get the joke and laugh about it. It would show he’s got a sense of humor.
