Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg was ridiculed online after attempting to land a joke at the Democratic Party presidential debate in Charleston, South Carolina.

Bloomberg shared the stage with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former VP Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and businessman Tom Steyer.
