    Geriatric Showdown

    US President Donald Trump and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg engaged in a classic game of insult-slinging on Twitter Thursday, beginning with the commander-in-chief trolling the 2020 presidential candidate for his height and calling him a “loser.”

    Geriatric Showdown

    Trump’s latest round of attacks against Bloomberg came in the form of retweeting a photoshopped image initially shared by Dan Scavino, the White House’s social media director. The post included a caption that even threw shots at Jeb Bush, one of Trump’s GOP opponents in the 2016 presidential election.

    However, it wasn’t until Trump fired off his second Bloomberg-focused tweet, in which he referred to the presidential candidate as a “mass of dead energy,” that the Massachusetts native decided to snap back at 45.
    ​“We know many of the same people in NY. Behind your back they laugh at you & call you a carnival barking clown,” Bloomberg tweeted. “They know you inherited a fortune & squandered it with stupid deals and incompetence.” 

    The brief online throwdown between the two politicians eventually came to close after Bloomberg published a tweet with a “Gladiator”-themed GIF and Trump tweeted a call to “DRAIN THE SWAMP.”

    It’s anyone’s guess who won this round.

      The attempted impeachment of US President Donald J. Trump has undoubtedly been one of the most partisan political spectacles in America’s history, with all members of the rival Democratic Party in the Senate impeachment trial being for his removal from office, and the vast majority of Trump’s Republican Party being against it.
