President Donald Trump decided to attack Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg yet again Thursday morning, but he probably wishes he’d kept quiet after the response he received from the former mayor of New York City.
It all started when Trump posted this tweet:
Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians. No boxes please. He hates Crazy Bernie and will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!

Be sure and note that Trump is also trying to set up an internal battle between Bloomberg and Sanders, suggesting that Democrats will attempt to “stop” Bernie if he appears to be the nominee.
But if you read between the lines, it quickly becomes clear that the president is terrified of facing either Bloomberg or Sanders. And Bloomberg has already said he will spend billions of dollars of his personal fortune (which is estimated to be $61 billion) to defeat Trump, no matter who wins the Democratic nomination.
Within minutes, Bloomberg had fired back at Trump, and his response made Trump’s childish taunts seem pedestrian at best:
.@realDonaldTrump – we know many of the same people in NY. Behind your back they laugh at you & call you a carnival barking clown. They know you inherited a fortune & squandered it with stupid deals and incompetence.
I have the record & the resources to defeat you. And I will. https://t.co/fO4azmZaUg

Others then joined the party, reminding Trump that he’s got his own problems when it comes to charisma and physical appearance:

Donald Trump’s primary argument against Mayor Bloomberg:
“He is short.”
Which is ironic, since Donald Trump is tiny.
(In every way that matters.)

Mike Bloomberg is getting to you, isn’t he? Good job, Mike! He’s a much bigger man than you too! Every man is.
