Former New York Mayor, and current candidate for president, Michael Bloomberg, has fired back at President Donald Trump’s tweeter jabs at his short stature.

Bloomberg’s campaign spokesperson, Julia Woods, accused President Trump of spreading false information about the former New York City mayor wanting to stand on a box at the Democratic debate to make him appear taller.

Wood mocked Trump’s own appearance in a fiery statement Sunday while denying the claim.

“The president is lying. He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan,” she told CNN.

Since Bloomberg got into the race, Trump has made several claims about his height. Most recently, Trump told Fox News’s Sean Hannity in an interview that aired on Sunday before the Super Bowl, “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 to that? Really. Does that mean everyone else gets a box?”

Earlier that same day, Trump called his potential 2020 Democratic opponent “mini” while alleging again that Bloomberg wanted to stand on a box. Bloomberg, 77, is reportedly 5 feet, 8 inches tall, about half a foot shorter than Trump.

It’s not unusual for candidates to stand on raised platforms behind their lecterns on the debate stage to make all the candidates appear closer to the same height.

  1. Tee Hee Hee !! DJT is getting to Mini Mike already. DJT’s hair is his own-folks have pulled on it. He likes to raze his opponents and get them off their game. He’ll keep Mini Mike jacked up.

  2. Trump likes to pick on people like a child, such things as “lazy eyes” Chuck Todd and Pocahontas. This is absolutely ridiculous to be so shallow as our President, and his rhetoric during the State of the Union was just in such poor taste. He talks like a gang thug and this is what we have to deal with. Fortunately most, if not all of the candidates will not stoop to his level. Rex Tillerson had it right by referring to Trump as a moron.

  3. Trumps also pretends to be a billionare. He lies that he has a real degree and he lies he has bone spurs! I would shut up if i was him! Or let Bloomberg as that everyday ” how can you be the leader of the army when you 6 times lied that you were sick

  4. Keep telling Bloomberg that he is going to win as long as he pours more money into his campaign. That way when he loses his new residence will on the streets of San Francisco.

  5. The whole article crucified Trump for teasing Bloomberg. THEN
    In last paragraph, oh yeah, many contestants stand on boxes so the all look the same height.

  6. Bloomberg needs a three cornered hat , a shoulder sash and wth his stature he would be a good Napolean wanna be ! “THE MIGHTY MIDGET” ! Napolean also had visions of granduer and wanted to be emperior of Europe but he faced his Wqterloo and with Gods help ghe little miserable rat will be “Trumped “

  7. MICHAEL BLOOMBERG IS PART OF WHAT IS WRONG NOWADAYS WHERE BIG SHOTS CAN BUY ELECTIONS AND BUY CANDIDATES OR SPEND LOTS OF MONEY TO HELP DEFEAT CANDIDATES. BLOOMBERG LIKE SCHUMER IS JUST ANOTHER SHYLOCK.

  10. I could care less about Mike Bloomberg’s height or lack there of. What I care about is that he is an Anti-American Tyrant Democrat trying to take away our god given rights that have been reaffirmed under The Constitution. Past time to get rid of all of these Democrats and RINO’s destroying The United States. Vote RED in 2020 and beyond and Remove All Democrats.

  11. I totally agree with You. Isn’t this the little man who said helping the poor is counter productive also dictated what NY could eat work & live and he calls Trump a dictator

  12. Little Mike is an intelligent man of character unlike the fornicating, draft dodging, ignorant, degenerate who presently occupies the White House, and all I can say is:
    “THAT WE NEED TO DUMP THE HUMP NAMED DONALD TRUMP,
    BECAUSE HE IS A LUMPY, GRUMPY, SON OF A MILLIONAIRE WHO HAS NEVER EARNED A PENNY WITH HIS OWN FAT RUMPY.
    SO THEN, LET’S THE IMPEACH THE LEACHY IMMORAL HUMPTY-DUMPTY AND MAKE HIM A FORMER PRESIDENT“
