President Donald Trump took to Twitter to mock Democrats for what he described as their “crazy, chaotic” debate last night in South Carolina, taking aim at candidates Joe Biden, Mike Bloomberg, and Elizabeth Warren in the process.
“Crazy, chaotic Democrat Debate last night. Fake News said Biden did well, even though he said half of our population was shot to death. Would be OVER for most. Mini Mike was weak and unsteady, but helped greatly by his many commercials (which are not supposed to be allowed……during a debate),” Trump tweeted.
With his Biden comment, Trump was referring to the fact that the former vice president bizarrely claimed that 150 million people have been killed by guns since 2007.
“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability,” Biden said. “More than all the wars, including Vietnam, from that point on, carnage on our streets.”

Trump then shifted to targeting the next batch of candidates, starting things off with Warren, who he referred to by her nickname, “Pocahontas.” Trump has been calling her this ever since it was revealed that Warren effectively lied about having Native American ancestry for years.

“Pocahontas was mean, & undisciplined, mostly aiming at Crazy Bernie and Mini Mike. They don’t know how to handle her, but I know she is a ‘chocker.’ Steyer was a disaster who, along with Mini, are setting records in $’s per vote,” Trump wrote. “Just give me an opponent!”

The only two candidates Trump didn’t mention were Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), who are widely seen as the moderate options in the current crop of Democrats.
This comes after a chaotic Democratic debate featured candidates virtually going at each other’s throats as the moderators quickly lost all control of them. After watching that mess of a debate, it’s no wonder that Trump is so confidant that he will beat whoever turns out to be the nominee.
