As the impeachment marches on, Bloomberg’s staff took time out to be “woke.” Isn’t fair fair?

But for a New York Jew looks like you just claim that they are simply “borscht belt jokes.” I find it interesting that the Times choses now to do this little reveal.
Michael Bloomberg’s campaign team started cleaning up after its candidate before he has officially entered the 2020 presidential race.
A spokesperson from Bloomberg’s campaign issued an apology after a report from the New York Times revealed the former New York City mayor had made many demeaning comments about women.

“I guess,” Mr. Bloomberg was quoted as saying, “that puts a lot of you girls out of business.”
These accusations had surfaced before, but Bloomberg brushed them off as “borscht belt jokes.” His campaign, however, took a softer approach and apologized for the remarks.
