‘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?’

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

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