Michael Bloomberg's presidential campaign said they would not attempt to make the former New York City mayor appear taller during his Democratic primary debate debut. Campaign officials told NBC News on Wednesday that the candidate would "*NOT*" be on a box during the Wednesday debate. The confirmation follows President Trump blasting the mayor as "Mini Mike" and claiming he wanted a box to stand on in the debate. (Tweet) On Tuesday, Trump accused Bloomberg of illegally funding his own campaign before adding the box barb. "Mini Mike, Major Party Nominations are not for sale! Good luck in the debate tomorrow night and remember, no standing on boxes!" the president said.

How will we see the former Mayor Minor, then? Will he have a shorter podium than the others? Or will the camera capture him from the side?

Where Trump is mocked for his small hands. I think that Bloomberg has small hands and small everything. There is no way his nickname is "kickstand" if you get my drift. "Hey, stand up Mike...what am I saying? You make the rest of us stand up for Bloomberg"...Thanks Joe Biden.

I bet his podium is shorter to keep the camera shots proportionate. They probably won't have a full wide shot of all of them at once to compare. They can put him in drywallers stilts.

Optics shouldn't matter but does. Bloomie is taller than Mayor Pervert, Squaw Spreading Bull, and Aimless Amy. He is shorter than Quid Pro Joe and Steyer but they are going no place. He's taller than Crazy Bernie when he crouches over to shake his fist at capitalists. I am delighted that Mini Mike is spending 2 billion of his own money to try to buy the election. It will really hurt when he finds out that he's out 2 billion and is an also ran.

Mike Bloomberg got right back on the campaign trail Thursday morning, holding a rally where he joked about his abysmal Democratic debate performance. 'So how was your night last night?' he asked a crowd of supporters in Salt Lake City, Utah, alluding to the throttling he took by his 2020 rivals, starting off with a gutting courtesy of Sen.

Glezman said, “Yeah, in the height of intellectual dishonesty for Pete to make claims that there’s no compatibility with being a Christian and voting for Trump.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee raised more than $10 million in January, besting its Democratic counterpart as the Senate was adjudicating two articles of impeachment against President Trump.The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised $8.5 million in the first month of the election year, finishing the period with $19.75 million in cash on hand. The NRSC's haul stemmed from robust online fundraising from grassroots donors that surpassed what the committee accumulated digitally during the first five months of 2018. The Senate GOP campaign arm had its best January ever and closed the month with a $25.2 million war chest to spend on the fall campaign.

The Republican Party of Wisconsin appears to be dealing with vandals, as someone reportedly splashed paint on the windows of the 2200 block of North King Drive field office. The word “scum” was also allegedly painted onto the back door. The Milwaukee police were contacted and responded to the vandalism call on Wednesday morning, and are still looking for the suspect. They have not yet established an official motive for the crime, but it’s safe to say it was probably politically motivated.

It was an exciting time. In 2009, a grassroots movement of concerned Americans scheduled 800 Tea Party rallies nationwide on tax day, April 15th. Forty percent of tea partiers voted for Obama, naively believing it would end our nation's racial divide. They did not realize that Obama was a Trojan Horse with a progressive warrior hiding inside his black-skin exterior. Once Obama began implementing his undercover mission to transform America into a socialist/progressive country, Americans said, no. His sinister policies included persecuting Christians and opening borders to illegals. Obama betrayed Americans.In 2009, I was among only a few blacks in the Tea Party movement.
