“The president is toying with everybody by saying, had he said something like that, everyone would say, ‘Racist, racist, racist,’” Conway responded, noting that Bloomberg also blamed the discontinuation of discriminatory “redlining” practices for the 2008 financial crisis.

Conway also noted the allegations from dozens of women of sexist comments by Bloomberg, saying, “The comments he’s made about women — The Washington Post had to bleep out some of the actual words. ... That is all fair game.”

“Is it fair game for President Trump when he’s made sexist comments too?” Wallace responded, citing the “Access Hollywood” tape of Trump boasting about grabbing women’s genitals. Conway responded that Bloomberg’s comments are “far worse” than the “Access Hollywood” tape and that Trump's remark “was fully litigated. ... He won a month later.”

Conway also noted that Bloomberg is part of a field that has already seen every person of color drop out, including Sens.
