Unprepared, Unequipped Mike Bloomberg Makes First Debate Appearance | Morning Joe | MSNBC
all right so in a night of tough moments for

Mike

Bloomberg

here was the worst several former employees have claimed that your company was a hostile workplace for women when you were confronted about it you admitted making sexually suggestive remarks saying quote that's the way I grew up in a lawsuit in the 1990s a quarter of in Washington Post one former female employee alleged that you said quote I would do you in a second so Democrats expect better from their nominee I have no tolerance

for the kind of behavior that the Miche movement movement has exposed and anybody that does anything I'm wrong in our company we investigate it and if it's appropriate they're gone that day in my foundation the person that runs it's a woman 70% of the people there four women in my company lots and lots of women have big responsibilities they have paid exactly the same as men I hope you've heard what his defense was I'd been nice to some women the mayor has to stand on
his record and what we need to know is exactly what's lurking out there he has gotten some number of women dozens who knows to sign non-disclosure agreements both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace so mr. mayor are you willing to release all of those women from those non-disclosure agreements so we can hear their side of the story we have a very few non-disclosure agreements how many how many is there none of them accuse me of doing anything other than maybe
they didn't like the joke I told and let me just let me there's what the agreements between two parties that wanted to keep it quiet and that's up to them they sign those agreements and we'll live with it so wait when you say I just want to be clear some is how many and when you and when you say they signed them and they wanted them if they wish now to speak out and tell their side of the story about what it is they allege that's now okay with you you're releasing them on
television tonight the company and somebody else in this case the man or woman or could be but more than that they decided when they made an agreement that they wanted to keep it quiet for everybody's interest they sign the agreements and that's what we're eating is bound by being muzzled by you and you could release them from that immediately because understand this is not just a question of the mayor's character this is also a question about electability we are not going to be

Donald Trump with a man who has who knows how many non-disclosure agreements and the drip drip drip of stories of women saying they have been harassed and discriminated against let's get something straight here it's easy all the mayor has to do is say you are released from the non-disclosure said we're not going to get to end these agreements because they were made consensually and they have every right to expect that they will stay all right Elizabeth Warren in my estimate did an
incredible job not just going after

Bloomberg

about the NDA's which is debatable in the legal realm but showing something about his leadership qualities showing something about him how he deals with things it's his way or the highway and that's you know when you're looking at

Bloomberg

's candidacy that's the problem he poses for the Democratic Party and who they want to be and does he exactly represent who the Democrats want to put out Donny Deutsch I mean Amy Klobuchar
are also brought out that he's been hiding behind the ads he has been this was his

first

foray into the national stage he should have dealt with these questions he should have done interviews beyond with personal friends he should have come on

Morning

Joe gone on other shows and gotten through this stuff and figured out whether or not he can deal with it but instead it was it was hard to watch it was hard to watch because it showed who he was he runs the company that's the way it goes
and that's the question for the party do they want someone who runs things like Trump yeah you know you would have thought his biggest ball of vulnerability going in was you know the billionaire's stuff and I thought he actually handled that stuff relatively well yeah I've made a lot of money well I'm gonna put things back into it I shared a lot of money away I don't think he was in any way prepared for this stuff as far as the NDA stuff and the.you know the answer would have
unprepared unequipped mike bloomberg makes first debate appearance morning joe msnbc
been a pivot you know he there was kind of it's a bad bad question to have to answer and the answer would have been instead of just oh I've done really good things by women is look I stand by my record and pivot and because it's a very it's a question without an answer frankly and for him to get into the speech of you know oh look 40% of my foundation is run by women and bla bla bla bla bla that is a No Wyn answer and you know once again we've seen on these

debate

s
they're very very fluid and somebody who's a big winner one week the next week the world forgets you know so I don't think this is work for him the ads do work once again you see the exposure last night of how many people 1520 million people watched the TRPs the target rating points immediate term of what's people going to see from him over the next two weeks he's going to overwhelm that oh yeah it will overwhelm it I know again though I think for democratic professionals who
saw this guy as as their political Savior to save them from Bernie Sanders mahad's he was bad in politics 101 don't forgive a candidate they can beat Donald Trump for just about anything but you're right it's called the pivot listen I'm not going to get into that let me tell you what actually matters this is how I'm going to help women when I beat Donald Trump because and then list the things that Donald Trump is done the the retrograde policies how he's going to move
America forward that's what Americans care about but he wasn't good at any of it he wasn't good at Robert Gibbs he wasn't good at responding when he gave an answer an Elizabeth Warren interrupted I'd be Barack Obama Bill Clinton Ronald Reagan would turn and Donald Trump would turn and say hey let me finish answering the question unless you want to just sit up here and pose all day I'll let you posed all day but if I'm not in this

debate

I'm gonna walk up just take
control and for a guy's worth 55 billion dollars and says he can run the world he couldn't even want his own microphone last night so I'm wondering it for the democratic political class of his biggest sin last night was being so woeful II ill-prepared and ill-equipped - let's face it take on some politicians who aren't who aren't Obama thanks for checking out MSNBC on YouTube and make sure you subscribe to stay up-to-date on the day's biggest stories and you can click
