Democrats get attacked when they surge in polls
The 2020 Democratic candidates are quick to attack the one that's surging in the polls...
The targeted candidates
In the past, we have seen presidential candidates rise in the polls and get attacked by other candidates. Here are some examples of what the Democratic candidates had to say about one another.
“Vladimir Putin thinks that Donald Trump should be president of the United States. And that's why Russia is helping you get elected, so you will lose to him.”, Michael Bloomberg Remarked.
Elizabeth Warren commented, “I think I would make a better president than Bernie.”
“And I am not looking forward to a scenario where it comes down to Donald Trump, with his nostalgia for the social order of the 1950s, and Bernie Sanders with a nostalgia for the revolutionary politics of the 1960s.”, Pete Buttigieg stated.
“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against. A billionaire who calls women “fat broads” and “horse-faced lesbians.” And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump, I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”, Elizabeth Warren admits.
Joe Biden stated, “The fact of the matter is he has not managed his city very very well when he was there. He didn’t get a whole lot done. He had stop-and-frisk, throwing close to 5 million young black men up against the wall.”
“Mr. Mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements so we can hear their side of the story?”, Warren questioned.
“I’ve been told many times to wait my turn and to step aside, and I’m not going to do that now, and I’m not going to do that because a campaign memo from Mayor Bloomberg said this morning that the only way that we get a nominee is if we step aside for him.”, Senator Amy Klobuchar criticized.
“The mayor just recently had a fundraiser that was held in a wine cave full of crystals and served $900-a-bottle wine. Think about who comes to that. Billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next President of the United States.”, Warren explained.
“Pete, on the other hand, is trailing, Pete. You only got 39 billionaires contributing. So, Pete, we look forward to you — I know you’re an energetic guy and a competitive guy, to see if you can take on Joe on that issue.”, Sanders pointed out.
“Sometimes I think that Senator Warren is more focused on being punitive or pitting some part of the country against the other. She has yet to describe her tax plan, and whether or not that person I met would see a tax increase.”, Beto O’Rourke stated.
“Mr. Vice President, you want to be president of the United States you need to be able to answer the tough questions. I guarantee you, if you’re debating Donald Trump, he’s not going to let you off the hook. So, did you say those deportations were a good idea?”, Bill DeBlasio questioned.
Cory Booker argued, “Mr. Vice President, you can’t have it both ways. You invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign. You can’t do it when it’s convenient and then dodge it when it’s not.”
“First of all, Mr. Vice President, it looks like one of us has learned the lessons of the past and one of us hasn't.”, Julián Castro concluded.
