Mike Bloomberg is attacking President Donald Trump in his safe space.

On Thursday morning, the Democrat premiered his newest ad attacking the president on “Fox & Friends,” Trump’s favorite program that frequently lavishes praise on him. Adding insult, the show also interviewed Bloomberg’s top presidential campaign adviser, Kevin Sheekey.

Trump, who’s known to record the show and watch it later in the morning, exploded an hour-and-a-half later, at 8:25 a.m.

“Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals. He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard .... during his hopeless ‘presidential’ campaign,” Trump wrote. “They will remain silent! The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these ‘clowns’ because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all — and he will be right!”

It’s the latest example of how a plank of Bloomberg’s campaign revolves around agitating the president, who has increasingly begun criticizing his former mayor from New York, a self-made billionaire who has spent years belittling Trump as a bad businessman and reality TV star.

When Bloomberg first announced, one of the first places he bought ad time was in the West Palm Beach, Fla., media market so Trump might see the ad as he visited his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach.
