    2019 Video: Mike Bloomberg Calls Transgender People “It” And “Some Guy Wearing A Dress”

    A newly uncovered video shows Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg in 2019 describing transgender people as “he, she, or it” and “some guy in a dress” who enters girls locker rooms — invoking a conservative cliché as he argued that transgender rights are toxic for presidential candidates trying to reach Middle America.

    And yet, Bloomberg’s campaign published a new video on Tuesday that pledged the former New York City mayor believed in “inclusivity” for “LGBTQ+ youth,” featuring fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi declaring, “Mike is so incredibly sensitive to this issue.”......

    “If your conversation during a presidential election is about some guy wearing a dress and whether he, she, or it can go to the locker room with their daughter, that’s not a winning formula for most people,” he said.

    Bloomberg made a similar remark about a “man wearing a dress” in 2016, but his comments uncovered Tuesday — remarks he made less than a year ago — came amid the early stages of the 2020 Democratic primary.
    ------------------------------

    Bloomberg will get tore apart despite his money if Dems actually truly go after him. The Bernie bros wont back down from exposing him.

    He’s right about it not being a winning formula in the general election.

    These flailing failing threads are quite humorous. I guess Bloomberg really got the Trumpistas peeing in their pants ;)

    Bloomberg should have never made those statements. On the other hand his actual record on the issue speaks somewhat differently and should more than offset his inappropriate private remarks.
    In April 2002, during his first year as mayor, Mike signed a sweeping transgender civil rights bill into law. His company provides comprehensive healthcare coverage for his transgender employees. As president, he has a comprehensive plan to secure rights for transgender Americans, including passing the Equality Act, ensuring transgender people have access to affirming healthcare and working to end the crisis of violence against transgender women. Mike is running to defeat Donald Trump and reverse the many policies he has implemented that attack the rights of the transgender community."

    Lyndon Johnson used the "N" word in private conversations. Good thing everyone wasn't equipped with a cell phone 50 years ago. Should Johnson's use of a derogatory racial term in private conversations invalidate Johnson's accomplishments in the area of civil rights? Johnson was largely responsible for the enactment of the most consequential civil rights legislation of the last century, specifically the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

    I guess if Bloomberg gets the nomination all the transgenders will vote for Trump and his administration's incredible track record for LGBQT rights..... lol

    Bloomberg would be Trump's worst nightmare as an opponent -- a legitimate self-made billionaire who is literally 60 times richer than Trump.

    Can I safely assume "it" isn't one the Progressives' preferred pronoun list for transgender individuals?

    It’s hilarious when a Con tries to make someone talking like a Con into a bad thing...

    which made me think why Bloomy was trying to pander to Trump's base.

    After all the Trump bashing and angst over Trump and his supporters, you are now saying it is indeed ok to act this way?

    Or does Bloomberg get a pass because he is a Democrat?

    I believe someone said it isn’t okay, but do you really want to start over whether it is okay for someone to say things that are inappropriate? I hear there may be an problem with the incumbent on that issue. So that’s why fever’s pearl clutching is hardly persuasive.

    1 time per year for Bloom, 6x a day for Trump. Context matters
