Super Bowl scuffle: Trump claims Bloomberg wants a box to stand on for debates — Bloomberg says he’s lying

By Sun, Feb 2, 2020

‘You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. OK. It’s OK. There’s nothing wrong. You can be short. Why should he get a box to stand on. He wants a box for the debates. Why should he be entitled? Does that mean everyone else gets a box?’

That’s President Trump focusing on Michael Bloomberg’s height in an interview with pal Sean Hannity that Fox News aired on Sunday ahead of the Super Bowl.

Bloomberg’s height — he’s apparently listed at 5’8” — quickly became a trending topic across the internet.

Bloomberg’s campaign issued a statement cited by NBC News saying there’s no truth to Trump’s “box” tale.

“The president is lying,” the Bloomberg spokesperson said. “He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”

And here’s a tweet from one of Bloomberg’s advisers:

Bloomberg himself responded after the clip was aired, saying “I stand twice as tall as he does on the stage that matters.”
