Even Michael Bloomberg’s campaign manager could only say that his candidate had a better second half of Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, and it’s true: it would have been difficult for it to get worse than his savage beat-down by Elizabeth Warren not even 10 minutes in.
President Trump weighed in on the debate and agreed with one thing Bloomberg said: that there’s no chance of Bernie Sanders defeating him in 2020. Plus, he managed to get in a swipe at Mini Mike.
“I don’t think there’s any chance whatsoever of Senator Sanders defeating President Trump.” Mini Mike Bloomberg. Mini, there’s even less chance, especially after watching your debate performance last night, of you winning the Democrat nomination…But I hope you do!

Trump didn’t tag Bloomberg, but he still found the tweet and responded in less than an hour … with this:

Some low-level staffer making $6,000 a month probably came up with that savage hashtag.
You’re bad at this. https://t.co/iPp4L7txnG

We guess Joe Biden isn’t the only septuagenarian running who can throw out old-timey references.
Carnival barking clown? What year is it?
Obvious Trump reply:
At least I'm tall enough to get on the rides at the Carnival.

After last night we just picture you saying this out loud and it's hilarious.

Trump's tweets feel natural. Good or bad they are natural. Mikey's (whomever is in charge of this account) sound like they are trying too hard. Kind of funny.

Mike, you’ve united America! It’s possible. Everyone on the left AND the right can’t stand you! ?

With all due respect, Mr. Bloomberg, your debate performance last night was arguably the worst I've ever seen.
Trump would absolutely eat you alive.
I think you should step aside and let one of your better-equipped competitors take it from here. Fund 'em, if you like!

You came up short at last night's debate. Your campaign is dead. Trump didn't blow a half billion dollars on a vanity project.

You may be a billionaire, but you’re out of your league.

Based on your performance last night, @realDonaldTrump should be pardoning you.
