Bloomberg Campaign Reworks Trump's Acquittal Speech And It's Literally Full Of Lies

And the occasional "unfair."

Democratic 2020 hopeful Michael Bloomberg’s new campaign video reimagines President Donald Trump’s acquittal speech.

And it’s full of lies and the occasional “unfair.”

Literally.

Trump appears to just repeat the words “lie” and “unfair” in the 2 1/2-minute clip that was edited and released by the former New York mayor’s team on Thursday.

Gingerbread men, with their pants on fire, also appear alongside the president.

Check it out here:

Trump’s time in office had by mid-January been marked by more than 16,000 lies, The Washington Post reported. During his acquittal speech, Trump called the impeachment proceedings over the Ukraine scandal a “witch hunt” and claimed former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe was “all bullshit.”

Bloomberg’s ad is the latest released by his campaign, which has already outspent those of his rival Democratic candidates despite only entering the race in November. Other spots have listed every school shooting in the Trump era and contained a tongue-in-cheek endorsement from dogs, following that awkward snout-shaking moment.

Critics have accused Bloomberg of trying to buy the presidency.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci (who is now a fierce critic of Trump), however, is among those who believe the billionaire media mogul is the best Democratic bet to beat Trump in November.
