Trump, Bloomberg trade insults as Twitter feud escalates(Source New York Post)
President Trump and Mike Bloomberg escalated their war of words on Thursday, trading vicious insults on Twitter that included personal put-downs and mocking memes. Among the invective was Trump calling Bloomberg a “loser” and a pint-sized “mass of dead energy,” while Bloomberg called Trump a “carnival barking clown” whose friends secretly laugh at him. The commander in chief launched the first volley by comparing Bloomberg — whose lavish ad spending has boosted his poll numbers among the eight remaining Democratic presidential candidates — to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who was the early front-runner in the 2016 Republican primary before being bested by Trump. “Mini Mike Bloomberg is a LOSER who has money but can’t debate and has zero presence, you will see. He reminds me of a tiny version of Jeb ‘Low Energy’ Bush, but Jeb has more political skill and has treated the Black community much better than Mini!” Trump tweeted.
