Bloomberg slams Sanders supporters’ aggressive online tactics in new video

(CNN)Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg attacked Bernie Sanders on Monday in a new digital video featuring aggressive and derogatory tweets, memes and videos purportedly posted by the Vermont senator’s online supporters. 

The nearly minute-long clip, which will not run on television, closes with a bite of Sanders calling for people “who hold different views” to “engage in a civil discourse.” Text then flashes on-screen, asking, “Really?”

Bloomberg launched the video in response to a recent Sanders’ speech that questioned whether the billionaire former mayor’s record, including his past embrace of “racist policies like stop-and-frisk’,” would ultimately depress Democratic turnout in a general election campaign against President Donald Trump.
