Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave one of her strongest performances in the 2020 Primary Debate. Warren attacked former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his alleged history of sexist remarks about women during the 2020 Democratic presidential debate in Nevada.
Warren slammed Bloomberg and asked her to release the women who signed a non-disclosure agreement with his company so that they could freely talk about their experiences in his employ.
During the debate when a moderator asked Bloomberg about the sexist comments he made about women he dismissed the queries. He said: “I didn’t have any tolerance for the kind of behavior that the #MeToo movement has exposed.”
He said that his company is considered to be one of the best places to work.
“I hope you heard his defense. I’ve been nice to some women. ” Warren answered. “That just doesn’t cut it. We need to know what’s hiding out there.”
Warren said: ” Mr. Mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from those non-disclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story?.”
He replied: “None of them accuse me of doing anything other than maybe they didn’t like a joke I told. There are agreements between two parties that wanted to keep it quiet. And that’s up to them. They signed those agreements and we’ll live with it.”
Warren again pressed him and said: “I want to be clear. Some are how many? And when you say they signed (the agreements), and they wanted them, if they wish now to speak out and tell their side of the story about what it is they alleged, that’s now OK with you? You’re releasing them on television tonight?”
