(RightWingAmericans.com) – Diana Taylor, the long-time girlfriend of billionaire Michael Bloomberg, has said people should “get over” the Democratic presidential candidate’s history of signing non-disclosure agreements with female employees.
The news comes after Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer and sexual predator/rapist, was found guilty on charges of rape and sexual abuse. Weinstein’s misconduct was the spark that created the #MeToo movement, and fellow Democrats will likely now have questions for Bloomberg about his history of treating women badly.
During the February 19 presidential debate in Nevada, Bloomberg was taken to task by an irate Elizabeth Warren who encouraged him, live on air, to free several women of their NDAs so they can tell their story. Bloomberg refused to do it, prompting boos and heckles from the audience.
Amazingly, however, Bloomberg went ahead and released three women from their NDAs on Friday, following the debate.
Taylor, Bloomberg’s girlfriend of 20 years, told Ed O’Keefe of CBS News during a “Women for Mike” rally that the old business environment was a “bro culture” but that things have changed.
“Life has changed…I grew up in that world. It was a bro culture,” she said. “We have come a very, very long way and Michael Bloomberg has been at the forefront of that change. It was 30 years ago. Get over it.”
You heard it, ladies! And from a “Women for Mike” rally, no less. You should just totally get over the fact that Mike has a horrible history with women.
That’s going to go down well with the Democrats’ new radical base…
Bloomberg released a statement following the debate saying that if any women who have signed an NDA would like to talk about the allegations they made, they should contact Bloomberg’s media company and they will be granted a release. A radical move, but likely a necessary one. That is unless he wants to get torn apart by Elizabeth Warren again.
The former New York City mayor continues to battle accusations of racism, sexism, and even transphobia after old footage was uncovered showing him talking about trans people as men wearing dresses and even suggesting black and Latino men “don’t know how to behave” at work.
