Mike Bloomberg attempted to punch back after President Trump made disparaging comments about his height, saying “I stand twice as tall as he does on the stage – on the stage that matters.”

Bloomberg was responding to comments Trump made to Fox News in a pre-Super Bowl interview with Sean Hannity.
When asked what he thinks of the former New York Mayor, the 6′ 3″ Trump replied “Very little. I just think of little. You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. OK. It’s OK. There’s nothing wrong. You can be short. Why should he get a box to stand on. He wants a box for the debates. Why should he be entitled? Does that mean everyone else gets a box?”
Bloomberg’s campaign also slapped back, with campaign spokeswoman Julie Wood saying in a statement “The president is lying,” adding “He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”
Meanwhile, it appears that Bloomberg may be even shorter than he says he is…
BLOOMBERG IS ONLY 5'7"!!!!

So now – with the Democratic National Committee changing the rules to allow Bloomberg to participate in future primary debates, all eyes will be focused on ‘mini’ Mike. Maybe they’ll stick him next to 6′ tall Joe Biden.
Never fear Mike, White Knight Jim Acosta has your back!
