Democratic rivals pummel Bloomberg at start of Nevada debate , The knives were out for Michael Bloomberg as he joined His fellow candidates on the Democratic debate stage Wednesday in Las Vegas. “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,” said Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. “Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns,
Of harassing women and of supporting racist policies like redlining and stop-and-frisk,” Warren added later. Sen. Bernie Sanders also hit Bloomberg’s record. “Mr. Bloomberg had policies in New York City of stop-and-frisk which went ,

Bloomberg hit back on Wednesday, saying there was no chance Sanders could win the nomination. “I don’t think there’s any chance of the senator beating Donald Trump. You don’t start out by saying I got 160 million people I’m going to take the insurance plan that they love.
If he is the candidate, we will have Donald Trump for another four years and we cannot stand that,” said the former New York mayor who has poured millions of his personal fortune ,
