Bloomberg Campaign Says He Won’t Stand on Box During Tonight’s Debate

According to Michael Bloomberg’s campaign, the diminutive 2020 candidate will not stand on a box in order to look taller at tonight’s debate.

During the September Democrat debate, keen observers noticed Julian Castro appearing to be standing on an elevated platform, leading to speculation the DNC would do the same for Bloomberg.

Bloomberg claims to be 5’8″ but some observers believe Bloomberg may be significantly shorter in real life.

President Trump has referred to Bloomberg as 5’4″ but Trump could also be exaggerating.

Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians. No boxes please. He hates Crazy Bernie and will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!

The WashingtonExaminer reports Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign said they would not attempt to make the former New York City mayor appear taller during his Democratic primary debate debut.

Campaign officials told NBC News on Wednesday that the candidate would “*NOT*” be on a box during the Wednesday debate.

The confirmation follows President Trump blasting the mayor as “Mini Mike” and claiming he wanted a box to stand on in the debate

On Tuesday, Trump accused Bloomberg of illegally funding his own campaign before adding the box barb. “Mini Mike, Major Party Nominations are not for sale! Good luck in the debate tomorrow night and remember, no standing on boxes!” the president said.
