Do Democrat voters like when politicians insult lesbians?
Senator Elizabeth Warren accused businessman and former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg of calling women "horse faced lesbians".
But enough about Sarah Jessica Parker.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., didn’t waste any time during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate in attacking the new candidate on the stage, ripping former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his past comments on women and for using his wealth to surge in the 2020 presidential race.
“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against,” Warren said, standing directly next to Bloomberg on stage in Las Vegas. “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.”
Warren added: “Democrats take a huge risk if we just substitute one arrogant billionaire for another.”
Warren's comments were in reference to claims made in a book by journalist Eleanor Randolph entitled “The Many Lives of Michael Bloomberg” that was released last year. The section of the book Warren was referring to was a comment Bloomberg allegedly made about the British royal family.
