The Federalist’s co-founder blasts Former NY Mayor’s debate performance
Co-founder of the Federalist, Sean Davis, ridiculed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg following his dismal performance during the Democratic debates last week.
Speaking during a segment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” David said, “that might’ve been the first time in television history that we saw a guy pay half a billion dollars to get scalped by a fake Indian.”
Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren fiercely targeted Bloomberg, calling out his derogatory comments he had reportedly made about women who worked for him at the time.
Warren also attacked the former mayor for refusing to allow women to break non-disclosure agreements.
According to Davis, Bloomberg had paid for the privilege of getting ripped to shreds on national television during his first appearance on the debate stage.
When David was asked whether or not Bloomberg’s efforts to buy the nomination would pay dividends, David replied:
“We’re getting to see in real-time whether a candidate with no charisma, no real rationale for running, no base of support can actually buy a nomination and I gotta say I was kind of amazed, I think that might’ve been the first time in television history that we saw a guy pay half a billion dollars to get scalped by a fake Indian.”
“I’m stealing that; it’s too good,” Carlson laughed.
“You’re absolutely right. It’s either a species of masochism or that you’re watching something that’s so cynical that it puts a chill down your body. This is a guy that does not believe in democracy at all,” Davis said.
“Thinks the system is ridiculous, he can walk in and flood the zone with cash, and we will obey. Is that what you think?”
“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 Donald Trump, I’m talking about mayor Bloomberg.” pic.twitter.com/Rp8UWo7Az4

Mini Mike Bloomberg’s debate performance tonight was perhaps the worst in the history of debates, and there have been some really bad ones. He was stumbling, bumbling and grossly incompetent. If this doesn’t knock him out of the race, nothing will. Not so easy to do what I did!

Davis also referenced Bloomberg’s infamous “Stop and Frisk” policy, which was revealed last week from a resurfaced audiotape of him defending an aggressive strategy of policing minority neighborhoods during a 2015 speech to the Aspen Institute.
“I don’t know. Maybe he thought he could go into the debate and throw the other candidates up against the wall, and they’d just give up. That’s what he is generally done with his opponents in government previously.”
Trump also shredded Bloomberg’s chaotic performance:
“Mini Mike Bloomberg’s debate performance tonight was perhaps the worst in the history of debates, and there have been some really bad ones.”
“He was stumbling, bumbling, and grossly incompetent. If this doesn’t knock him out of the race, nothing will. Not so easy to do what I did!”
