The new ad goes after Trump over a report in a new book by The Washington Post's Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, which details how Trump unloaded on the nation’s top military leaders in a private meeting, calling them “a bunch of dopes and babies.”
“The Pentagon. President Trump arrives for a briefing by top military leaders. Trump explodes. Attacks the war heroes in the room as losers and a bunch of dopes and babies,” the narrator in the ad states. “Many in the room had risked their lives for our country. Soldiers. Heroes, attacked by an arrogant and out of control president. Arrogance, ignorance, chaos. Enough. America needs a steady leader who will honor those who serve.”
Bloomberg is fast approaching the $200 million mark in advertising spending for his presidential campaign, which has focused predominantly on drawing contrasts between himself and Trump on issues such as health care and infrastructure.
Bloomberg is not fundraising and so has not qualified for any of the Democratic presidential debates.
Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals. He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is. By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 23, 2020
....during his hopeless “presidential” campaign. They will remain silent! The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these “clowns” because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all - and he will be right!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 23, 2020
