US Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren is being praised online for her fiery performance in a televised debate on Wednesday. The senator, Elizabeth Warren got it on with opponent and billionaire businessman, Michael Bloomberg at the second 2020 Democratic presidential primary last night night in Las Vegas.
The Massachusetts senator described the former New York City mayor as an “arrogant billionaire” who calls women “horse-faced lesbians”.
Warren said Bloomberg had a history of supporting racist policies and was no different from incumbent President, Donald Trump.
If elected president, the 70-year-old said, she would formulate policies that would favour working-class families.
This, she added, would be her strategy to defeat the incumbent.
Firing her first salvo, Warren said, “I’d like to talk about who we’re running against, 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.”
Comparing Bloomberg to Trump, she said Democrats would be taking a huge risk going into the elections in November 2020 if they just substituted one “arrogant billionaire” for another.
According to her, “Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women, and of supporting racist policies like redlining and ‘stop and frisk.’”
