Bloomberg’s Attempt at a Joke About Winning Last Debate Falls Extremely Flat


Michael Bloomberg’s second appearance on the Democratic debate stage started off better than his debut last week, but he took a moment to stop and deliver a joke that just did not work in the room (or out of it).

In the middle of responding to another criticism from Elizabeth Warren, Bloomberg wryly remarked: “I really am surprised that all of these, my fellow, uh, contestants up here I guess would be the right word for it, given nobody pays attention to the clock, I’m surprised they show up because I would’ve thought after I did such a good job in beating him last week that they’d be a little afraid to do that.”

So… yeah.

Have a tip we should know?
