Bloomberg Embarrasses Trump At SOTU With 6-Tweet Trolling


This Tuesday, President Donald Trump delivered his traditional annual State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress that had gathered in the U.S. House chamber. The evening was marked by high-profile moments like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) disposing of her copy of Trump’s remarks while she was still positioned at the front of the chamber with the president (she tore up the document). Over on Twitter, former New York City mayor-turned Democratic presidential primary candidate Mike Bloomberg chimed in with his own trolling of Trump, pointing out the absurdity and hollowness of the pro-MAGA diatribes that the president was delivering.

He pointedly began:

‘The state of our union is stronger than ever before.” Only three minutes in and he’s already told his first lie.’

And it went on from there. He also needled Trump’s economic struggles, power obsession, racist plans for a border wall, failed climate policy, and more.

Bloomberg’s campaign has already gotten on Trump’s nerves plenty of times before. Although the former NYC leader is polling towards the back of the current pack of candidates, Trump has repeatedly mocked him, including over his height. Trump even claimed that Bloomberg was trying to secure some kind of box to stand on while participating in an upcoming Democratic presidential candidates’ debate — but the Bloomberg campaign said that’s simply not true, marking yet another outlandish lie from the president.

The morning after his State of the Union address, Trump focused most of his attention on Pelosi. He retweeted one message from his administration’s former member Nikki Haley, who complained:

‘No matter how you feel or what you disagree with, remember others are watching. This was unbecoming of someone at her level in office.’

That is spectacularly rich coming from the side whose dear leader, Donald Trump, has defined his time in office with spectacles like endlessly belittling nicknames for and mockery of his opponents. At this point, years after he faced her in an election, Trump still struggles to mention Hillary Clinton without belting out the “Crooked Hillary” diatribe — but Pelosi is the classless one?
