Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Morning presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg made his debut last night on the twenty twenty democratic debate stage in Nevada and here's how he introduced himself to America I'm a New Yorker I know how to take on an arrogant con man like Donald Trump comes from New York and here is how his rivals responded I want to talk about who were running against a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse stays to lesbians and no I'm not talking about Donald Trump I'm talking about male Bloomberg Mr Bloomberg had policies in New York City of stop and frisk which one half the African American and Latino people in an outrageous way that is not a way you're going to grow voter turnout let's put forward somebody who actually lives and works in a middle class neighborhood in an industrial midwestern city let's before somebody who's actually a Democrat well those democratic presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders and be booted judge and that was all just in the opening ten minutes last night so how to Bloomberg fend off his rivals and how does is late entry complicate the democratic field for can ask Corley he lands he it Corey Ilan's he's a former communications eight for president Obama he's in studio thanks for coming in court good to be here how do you think Mike Bloomberg did last night I think he did exactly as we would anticipate he would do as somebody who's coming into the race at this particular time if you think about it Mike Bloomberg as he just said it is a former mayor of New York City so he's coming in with a sense that he's done this before this is not a big deal he clearly didn't prep and if you think about it didn't did not press this was very apparent because and if you think about it incumbent presidents when the running for that second term that first debate is always the roughest when the running for the real act that's the mindset he wasn't think about it he issued the the campaign issued a statement afterward saying he's just getting warmed up yeah that's exactly they knew he was not going to do well last time so does that mean does that hurt him I mean it if this is his first impression and he didn't make a good one then how does he pay that moving forward well here's the deal he is not on the ballot this week or next week in a lot of South Carolina so he literally had nothing to lose literally it's important for him to be on the stage now rather than in the South Carolina Carolina debate next Tuesday because it allows him to get all of this out all of his anxiety all of his nervousness all his bad move and all of the negativity as far as the issues he's been dealing with over the past several weeks all of that out now he can go to the South Carolina debate next week with a clean slate to to some degree hello yeah yes and by the way there's that whole four hundred million dollar thing that's on his side as well so that's going to keep him in the race right so lousy pizza last night people to judge said of the and I'm paraphrasing here but essentially Democrats could wind up with a choice between the two most polarizing candidates Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg especially because of that money you just noted is that a concern for you well I tell you this he has absolutely every right to be a candidate in this race and to spend the money that he needs to spend for Bernie he has built up a following over the past six years that has been consistent but it is a real threat to the Democratic Party because you have to outsiders one with enormous money one with the new home was following a democratic socialist and a former Republican billionaire that are your two biggest candidates right now that's a problem for the Democratic Party is there anyone that you as a Democrat as someone who follows all this closely who is invested is there anyone in this field of democratic candidates who you genuinely believe can beat Donald Trump I believe Joe Biden can be done from how he has lost the first two contests well I tell you this when you look at where he is right now he anticipated that it wasn't going to do well in Iowa and New Hampshire he has put all his chips in South Carolina and thinks he's also going to do well here in out in the bottom at the end of the day Joe Biden is banking on South Carolina and using that as a springboard into super Tuesday the key is going to be how much money does he have going into the in soups Tuesday to make a spread across the country right and is Mike Bloomberg of potentially it gains traction he could siphon off some of that money exactly right Cory eons former communications aide in the Obama White House thank you for your time this morning no problem could be here
