Still Recovering From His Scalping Last Week. (AP Photo/John Locher)
I don’t blame Mike Bloomberg for canceling his scheduled CNN town hall for tonight after the VICIOUS beating the faux Indian gave him last Wed in Las Vegas. If he were a football player he would not be cleared to play for weeks being his bell was run that hard.
According to reports Mike will be spending tonight studying for tomorrow night’s debate and using smelling salts to clear his head.
From The Hill…
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will postpone a CNN town hall slated for Monday to prepare for Tuesday’s debate in South Carolina.
The announcement comes on the heels of both Bloomberg’s widely panned debate performance in Nevada last week and Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) resounding victory in the Nevada caucuses over the weekend. Bloomberg, who did not enter any of the early contests, will first compete in next week’s Super Tuesday primaries.
Preventing Sanders from opening up an insurmountable lead has become paramount to the Bloomberg campaign after Sanders’s Nevada victory combined with polls showing him catching up with former Vice President Joe Biden in South Carolina after Biden previously led by double digits in the Palmetto State.
In last week’s debate, the first for which the former mayor qualified, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) confronted him with his history of allegations of sexual harassment and sexist comments. The Massachusetts senator has since seen a slight rise in the polls following her debate performance.
Finally, we know that someone with some savvy is guiding the Bloomberg camp. The reason I say that is how in the hell did anyone over at #TeamMiniMike allow him to go into last Wed debate and have his @$$ get handed to him by someone who takes on a new persona every 12 hours. Elizabeth Warren is absolutely the last person to tag a Billionaire former Mayor and that she did is just adding to the embarrassment.
Bloomberg is the only one that can stop Bernie Sanders’s march into Super Tuesday and taking the nomination way before the July convention in Milwaukee. Another damaging debate for Mike might be enough to absolutely destroy his chances of being the hope for the #NeverBernie forces. If Bloomberg crashes again tomorrow night go and watch the folks over at MSNBC to see what their reactions will be.
You will be able to tell with the sound muted.
So let’s hope that Bloomberg taking the night to study instead of dancing around Anderson Coppers’ questions helps. Then if the former Mayor gets a lot of rest, takes his vitamins and says his prayers he will be in fine form tomorrow night to get taken out by Mayor Buttigieg.
Let the “BATTLE OF THE MAYORS” begin.
