"Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, who recently rolled out his LGBTQ platform, is facing criticism after a 2016 video re-emerged this week, showing him using the term "man in a dress" to describe a hypothetical transgender woman.
In the clip, which was recorded at an event at the University of Oxford in Oxford, England, on Dec. 8, 2016, Bloomberg discusses the challenge of appealing to people on the opposite side of a political divide, in this case, Brexit.
Bloomberg said the division between people like him and attendees at the Oxford event, whom he described as "the intelligentsia" and "the vast bulk of people," was a divergence over "equality and protecting individual rights that make no sense to the vast bulk of people."
"They are not opposed to you having some rights, but there’s a fundamental disconnect between us believing the rights of the individual come first and the general belief around the world, I think it’s fair to say, that the rights of society comes first," Bloomberg continued."
