Uh oh. Might not work too well in the Democratic primaries.
And of course, it would deny him as the Democratic nominee ammunition he could use against President Trump, given the theory of, Don’t throw stones in glass houses if you yourself in habit one.
According to the Washington Examiner:
A New York Magazine journalist reported that in his time spent with Bloomberg, he degraded women based on their appearance, in one instance ignoring the conversation they were in to gesture at a woman and say, “Look at the ass on her.” The same article recounts a female politician detailing how the mayor shamed her for wearing flats rather than heels and demeaned the gray streaks in her hair.
New York Magazine also reported on a list of “Bloombergisms,” common phrases and quips the mayor used to make. These reportedly included “If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdale’s,” and “I know for a fact that any self-respecting woman who walks past a construction site and doesn’t get a whistle will turn around and walk past again and again until she does get one.”
Some of Bloomberg’s misogynistic acts and comments allegedly carry over into the workplace, meaning that his indiscretions do possibly cross over into the #MeToo realm of sexual harassment. For instance, several women have sued Bloomberg’s company for discrimination or sexual harassment, and the Atlantic piece documents their allegations. One female employee says that when she told Bloomberg she was pregnant, he responded with, “Kill it!” When she said she was engaged, Bloomberg responded, “What is the guy dumb and blind? What the hell is he marrying you for?”
