Biden leads in South Carolina polls.
The debate drew more than 13 million viewers.
Bloomberg touts his purchases.
Warren grabs the Socialist bull by the horns.
(NewsReady.com) – Yet another of the Democratic Party’s Presidential Debates is in the books. This version took place in Charleston, South Carolina in the week before the primary in that state. There were a few eyebrow-raising moments.
Recapping the Players
- Joe Biden, the former Obama vice president who can’t get his ex-boss to endorse him.
- Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), the self-proclaimed socialist who has sung the praises of the former Soviet Union and Fidel Castro, the deceased brutal Cuban dictator,
- Mike Bloomberg, the former Republican Mayor of New York City (NYC) whose fortune puts him in the stratosphere of the 1% crowd.
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), has claimed Native American ancestry, specifically the Cherokee Nation, including on her application to be admitted to the Texas State Bar.
- Pete Buttigieg, his only political experience is an 8-year stint as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, which had an estimated population of 101,860 as of 2018 according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Bloomberg’s Big Buy
Typically speaking, when somebody of Bloomberg’s wealth buys a house, it only makes the news for where it’s located and how much it costs. Celebrity K buys a Bel-Air mansion for $100 million and people shrug and mutter something like, “It must be nice.” But what if someone buys not a house in DC, but THE House in DC? It’s possible the ex-mayor did just that:
Michael Bloomberg actually just said that he bought 21 seats in Congress for the Democratic Party so that Nancy Pelosi would be Speaker of the House. He really said that out loud. According to him: Democrats BOUGHT their house majority in 2018. #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/1IdxV5ifFH

During the gabfest of self-promotion during these so-called debates, Bloomberg proudly proclaimed, “21 of those [of the 40 freshmen Democrat representatives] are people that I spent $100 million to help elect.” Then came the (possible) Freudian slip of all time when he went on to add, “I bought — I uh, got them.”
Maybe it was an honest mistake. But, can America afford a president who might believe, deep down, that he bought those seats like he went down to the local Ikea? Sometimes those gaffs named after the renowned psychiatrist show what a person really believes and they try to hide behind their public persona. A second megalomaniacal Liberal in the White House, the first being Obama, could be more than she can take.
Sanders is the frontrunner in the race for the nomination to face off against President Donald Trump in November. His opponents know it, and they acted like it. Bloomberg took aim and repeated claims some media outlets made, namely that Russian President Vladimir Putin is interfering in the election so the senator wins the nod.
Sen. Warren went on the offensive, painting herself as the stronger Progressive Liberal/Socialist candidate. Which begs the question, does she have more of that ideological blood running through her veins than she does Cherokee? “Mayor Pete” got in on the act by interrupting Sanders all night and usurping his answers.
It devolved from there with insults and accusations bouncing from podium to podium the entire night. With the way primary-season debates have become gruesome knife-fights in the past 50 years, it’s amazing that Americans can support the survivor. After all, just a few months before winning the nomination, fellow candidates will be saying that the person is unfit to be President of the United States of America. Maybe they will all change their minds after the convention.
