  1. Yang is onto something.

  2. Sleeping so good tonight after that debate! Andrew YANG 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • The thing that makes him so good and make his fans so passionate is also something that’s working against him I feel like. The way he conducts himself, cool, smart, logical and civil, just carrying a lot of class, which is definitely someone we actually want in the white house, not to mention his ability to solve difficult problems. However, all of this amazing attributes that r so rare in today’s politics rnt landing him any spotlights in the mainstream media. I think that’s why us yang gang really need to put in that extra mile to cover the ground that the mainstream media is lacking on delivering his message to the people who still rely their information on it.

    • @Kermit T. Frog Yang appeals to most sane people, I agree, because both parties totally lost it. I doubt most people agree with either mainstream site.

      And this is why this bugs me, we people aren’t so polarized, it’s online a small amount of loud people trying to convince us that we are enemies. Including the likes of Shapiro and Cenk, both are the problem, too extreme. That’s how they make money, in the end they need to feed their families.

    • @Kevin P I actually fell asleep angry that I couldn’t hear Yang speak. But my brain is auto tuned to Yang. So when It heard “Mr. Yang”, it woke up and Andrew was spitting rapid fire truth!!! I’d jump up, dance then a few minutes later fall back to sleep until “Mr. Yang”. I mean seriously, with the others haven’t we heard it all before? Yang was sensational!

    • @Jack Gates Spot on!

    MSNBC still doesn’t get it.

    • What do you expect from an organization of clueless, biased and corrupt people. They will get it, in time. Kicking and screaming that is. #Yang2020 #YangGang #MATH #HumanityFirst.

      No media company does. Everyone of them, even the so call “independents” are owned either by the big banks, foreign entities, or a combination of the two.

  4. Young Turks in the background 😂 #Yanggang

    • yangs been on tyt many times, probably will come again if they ask. but cenk needs to realize that bernie’s time has passed, and that he needs to be honest with himself: yang’s plan for america is superior to bernie’s, and support yang. it is time to pass the torch onto a newer, younger and innovative gen

    • Oh yea lol.

    • @Han South the biggest battle Will be Bernie vs yang 20th century Vs 21st century

    • Oh yeah Cenk behind Chris’ giant head

  5. Lol your to old to understand the future of block chain OG

    I just hate how dismissive they are of this guy

    • Boris Bornakiss | August 1, 2019 at 3:07 AM | Reply

      @Feanor Silva there’s a saying “you cannot teach an old dog new tricks”😁

    • well, at least they interviewed him; gave him some tough questions to answer. yang talked to chris more than he did at msnbc/dnc 1st debate. they need to be put on constant pressure from yang gang…go you rabid dogs, bite hard

    • Which is part of the value of the 1%er candidates; right now they crowd the stage, but they also show how well the main candidates respond to attacks in a debate.

    • It’s ok. Our man is strong and smarter than any of them, and I think they’re starting to catch. There are going to be a ton of embarrassed folk by the end of this election, dumbfounded at how they missed the mark – but those thinking clearly, know where Yang is headed. YANG 2020. Get ready for your next president.

  7. Yang is amazing ! I can’t imagine how much stress would be out of my life with 1000 per month

    • It’d give me a financial buffer to help me quit my current job and actually invest time and energy into something I feel is more worth doing. Slaving away just to make bills and to fit some role society has set for you isn’t a way to live.

    • @Jack Gates Not really sure how automation can take away legal system jobs. At least, not until we have technology that can replace ALL jobs.

    • @Arthur Yang who is a laywer says most of legal work can easily be automated. Well, most legal firms are just writing briefs and doing research most of the time and AI can do that, so it makes sense.

      Also, it doesn’t have to replace all jobs, even 30% is a huge deal.

  8. Wow, this interviewer was on a mission to box Yang out!

  9. as soon as he started talking about eradicating poverty they cut him off!!! lollll America sucks

  10. Ray Pfanenstiel | August 1, 2019 at 2:18 AM | Reply

    Yes, Andrew! #yanggang The interviewer was horrible, though.

  11. Underdog or not I find his attitude so refreshing and can do without the kabuki theatrics of the others. He’s a problem solver. Yang 2020!

    • There was one question that I interpreted as a positive invitation to Yang to take a swipe at Biden. Yang ignored it and focused on making his own point. For me that was a better “highlight” moment than any of those zingers that impress the press so much.

    • Boris Bornakiss | August 1, 2019 at 3:10 AM | Reply

      @Feanor Silva he’ll start doing that this September!😊

    • jenelyn reed well said!

  12. I think Andrew Yang has to give this guy and MSNBC a few more MATH lessons, until they start to understand his policies …

  13. Good job MSNBC for the Worst interview ever. Keep mocking and ignoring him. We don’t need you to win in 2020.

  14. That old guy had it out for Yang, but Yang made too much sense!

    • @Ash Roskell A rattlesnake is better than a viper because the rattlesnake gives you a warning, but they’re both still snakes.

    • Dewey Baugh : And, we knew Trump was a snake, when we let him in. Perhaps you should tell us, who plays which role in your analogy? Otherwise, it’s difficult to know what you’re really getting at?

    • @Han South The beauty of it is, that lower guys get more. Because higher earners will also pay more vat, since they consume more and buy more luxury goods. So, the poorer you are the more % of that 1k you keep.

      I saw calculations that bottom 94% of Americans will be better off. But, yeah of course top 6% will lose what they have,that’s harsh, but has to be done.

      And when you say “free money”, I can argue that they didn’t earn this money with true free market. They created inflation and bought politicians to give them corporate welfare, so not all of that money is “theirs”.

    • you be right. top 6 percent will lose some money. not very harsh though, they have unspeakable amount money. they have so much money that they can throw it away in the gutter and it will make them more money

    • @Ash Roskell Im not a party loyalist. For-profit media is not a friend to the American people. Career politicians are not a friend to the American people.There are snakes on both sides of the spectrum. I don’t like snakes.

    1:20 – The control room in Chris Matthews’ ears is feeding him hostile questions as his initial line of questioning failed to trap Yang whatsoever.

  16. This guy gives no respect for Yang….

  17. Wow so rude for him to cut off Yang at the end when he was about to educate him lol.

    • Yeah, Chris meant “I know , I know you are the real deal and if I keep talking, you will make us look bad and I have to lie to people in order to get my salary.

  18. Robin Pintado | August 1, 2019 at 2:36 AM | Reply

    MSNBC doesn’t like this candidate lol. You can hear the way the reporter speaks.

    • Because they are addicted to fame and money, but in the end they don’t realize they are voting against their own long term interests too. Do they want their children to grow up in bunkers? It’s not like this income inequality can go on forever.

      Yang is the middle ground. Trump is an oligarch dictator, Bernie is danger for social dictatorship. We are the safest with Yang here and none of the extremes are good.

  19. This guy is a bit rude to president Yang.

  20. Math lesson for MSNBC… there’s 20 candidates, but only 19 appear on their website. 🤔 Who’s missing? Andrew Yang.
