"President Donald Trump visited Phoenix, Arizona for a rally Wednesday night, February 19, 2020. The rally was part of his 2020 campaign and took place on the same night that the Democrats are hosting their latest debate. The venue, which holds at least 14,500, reached capacity and overflow space was needed for what looked like thousands of people outside. Read on to learn more and see crowd and overflow photos and videos from the rally."
"Michael Bloomberg: The first hour of the debate was an absolute and total disaster for the former mayor. He looked lost at times — and those were the best times for him! Warren dunked on him repeatedly. Sanders slammed him. Biden bashed him. It was like watching a pro wrestling match where everyone decided to gang up on a single wrestler in the ring — and that wrestler was totally and completely caught off-guard. Bloomberg is still very, very rich — and will continue to spend his money on the race. So he's not going away. But it's hard to see how the momentum Bloomberg had built through his heavy ad spending wasn't slowed considerably by a performance that slid waaaaay under what was a very low bar of expectations."
Trump had his usual experience of a filled stadium with an overflow crowd watching outside on the big screen, content to be near him.
In Las Vegas the attacks on Bloomberg were ferocious. His inability to deal with other humans as though they were his equals was spectacular in its naked visibility. He seems to think that his statement of availability + his expenditure of a billion or two insures his election. It was clear that he does not think his magnificence should be questioned.
There has been an excellent mini-series on George Washington on the History Channel this week. One of the points made about him is that after winning independence from Great Britain all he wanted from life was to be allowed to go home to his farming business and his SWMBO. He was reluctant to attend the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia and even more reluctant to accept the presidency when it was universally demanded that he take it. HE DID NOT WANT IT. The contrast with Bloomberg could not be greater. BTW, Bloomberg hates guns. Washington armed his male adult slaves with firearms so that they could act as a posse to defend the property against thieves and hunt for themselves and for his own table.
1. Bloomberg is revealed as having said in public that all the disposable income of the poor should be taxed away so that they will not have funds with which to do mischief like buying fast food or sugary drinks.
2. Bloomberg described Sanders as a Communist who cannot be elected. In this he was correct.
3. Bloomberg was described by Warren as a cold-hearted and insulting man who openly scorns women, gays and minorities.
4. Mayor Pete mocked Klobuchar for her inability to remember the name of the president of Mexico. She asked if he was calling her "stupid."
These six dwarves will probably persist in their quest for the brass ring all the way to the convention. In the mayhem there, the "winner" will probably have to choose one of the "losers" to be his VP running mate.
This should be fun all the way to November. pl
