Transcript for Bloomberg qualifies for his 1st Democratic debate
Happy Tuesday, y'all. Mike Bloomberg continues to rise in the polls and he's qualified for tomorrow night's debate in Las Vegas after the DNC dropped their requirement of meeting donor threshold. So is he now going to be the biggest target on the stage? I mean, you know, everybody's poop is coming out now. I don't know. Think about it. People of a certain age, I mean, we had a whole show called "Mad men" that dealt with the stupid stuff, particularly and, you know, not only, but particularly that white guys of a certain age believed. So it's not a surprise to me -- They still do. Well, yeah. It mean, it seems like, you know, can you throw a stone anywhere and find somebody who hasn't stepped in it? I mean, look. It's just -- I think you can throw a stone and find someone with less oppo because he's been in public office so long.

We didn't get a chance to talk about it this morning, but I was sent that clip, and it was in 2011, and joy and I have been talking about Bloomberg a lot because I know you believe he's one of the people that can beat trump. If we keep taking the Democrats down, trump is going to win. I say be careful about that because what you have got, the Democrat is standing between trump and fascism. But if Democrats don't take him out, Republicans will. Have no doubt, you can't stop oppo from coming out. I think every single candidate -- yeah. I think every single candidate should be vetted whether or not you're a Republican or a Democrat. Mm-hmm. I think it took too long for the grab them by the you know what video to come out. I to think everyone should be vetted, but this weekend someone
