  1. 4:18 She didn’t appreciate the interruption. Me neither. Let her finish Cuomo.

    • I know your not making the assertion that wealthy, famous, white man, Cuomo somehow disrespected her by interrupting her. He just had something more important to say.
      Jesus, people just don’t know their place these days 😉

    • Fredo is very impolite!

      @Brandon Heald how is his class, race and gender relevant? Sensing a hint of prejudice from you there. Anyone can be disrespectful and vise-versa.

    • Disconnected Roamer it was sarcasm coming from Brandon Heald

    • @Disconnected Roamer Not really. If you act disrespectful as a queer colored woman you face completely different repercussions for “interrupting” than Chris Cuomo.

  2. I find it weird that Yang is now a political commentator but CNN could use someone different with a fresh viewpoint.

  3. Looking at how Bernie steamrolls Bloomberg, I have doubts Bloomberg can even last the first question against President Trump.

  4. I think I lost brain cells and losing my site after reading the comment section.

    Edit: See even the people reading my comment are losing brain cells. It’s an intelectual black hole!

  5. “Change his pitch” ?? Unwavering persistence & consistency is what got Bernie this far!

  6. These moderate Democrats have lost election after election, but they’re afraid about doing something different.

      Trump’s A FatAss – I live in Wisconsin. I’ve seen what Trump has done to our farmers. He will NOT win Wisconsin this time. I prefer Bernie, but at the end of the day i will vote for a fence post if that’s the Democratic nominee just to send that P.O.S. Trump packing his bags.

    • @Trump’s A FatAss I think it takes a populist to beat a populist. You make it harder to win Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania if you nominate a neoliberal candidate who only appeals to liberal white-collar professionals. Schumer in 2016 said “for every blue-collar voter we lose in central Pennsylvania, we’ll pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs of Philadelphia.” How did that strategy work out? Will you vote for Bernie in the general if he’s the nominee?

      credman here’s a plan I’d support.

      Lower the Medicare eligibility age by 6 months each year.

      Or
      Give people the OPTION to buy into it at any age or keep what they have. If you do that Dems can win in 2020.

    • Trump’s A FatAss 3-5% more in taxes to have access to free healthcare isn’t going to break you, plus, you can keep your private health insurance if you want. Ask anyone who is at the age of receiving Medicare and how good it is for them. You will see that it’s run more efficiently than private insurance.

      christopher weise christopher weise but trumps approval raising just went UP
      In Wisconsin of all places and it’s the first state where he’s reached 51 percent approval.
      And the people of Wisconsin are the ones who threw all those public union employees out of work a few years ago and then voters for trump So no I’m not trusting Wisconsin

  7. Bloomberg: “I should be allowed to make billions, bc look I’m now giving it away.”

    Uhhhh, how about you make just a few hundred million, use the rest to increase employee salaries and actually pay taxes, then you don’t have to be burdened with ‘giving it away’.

      @R. Forrest Blount billionaires provide capital to banks, which then get loaned out and those people create capital.

    • @Smith John Way to go, Smith John! How dare they pick on Mr. Bloomberg like that?! ololololololol You’re like Sam Jackson in Django Unchained

    • Do you work for Bloomberg? Because he actually pays his employees pretty well. I can’t find any record of people complaining about being inderpaid at his company so you demanding him to give away his own money is ridiculous.

    • @Smith John you’ve been brainwashed into defending the rich. Rich people didnt earn their money. Yes, they worked. Yes they deserve money, but they dont deserve AS MUCH MONEY AS THEY HAVE! Rich people are a parasite. They dont pay taxes, they dont pay fair wages to underlings, they hoard more money than they know what to do with. And our economy suffers and people starve because of it.

    • The billionaires of our society, are VERY successful business people who often employ millions of workers like you & me!
      They compete in a very competitive environment & have to make very tough decisions!
      Some decisions are made for them like the OBAMA administration paying companies to leave for tax breaks!
      By having crazy regulations that wouldn’t allow them to compete!
      Donald Trump, being a billionaire saw this & when he became President Trump he gave incentives for companies to return & tax breaks to help them compete!
      Our president also saw the archaic trade policies that only paid off the politicians at the cost of jobs in America!
      REMEMBER the B S that American workers couldn’t compete, even though we get FEWER vacation days, sick days, & work longer hours?
      Those were the excuses of Obama & the Democrats because they were to lazy & ignorant to change because they were getting rich off the system as it was!
      Keep a winner in the Whitehouse & vote for Trump & Republicans for the House & Senate! 👍😁🇺🇲

  8. He has given a lot of money to the DNC, hes right. That’s how he got on the debate stage

    • money that are going to be spent against Trump.

    • @pitu toup maybe, but Trump isnt the only problem. I’m mostly a Democrat but the DNC refuses to back Bernie because he truly wants to change the system that is failing, and no matter what party you are in both parties are part of a failing system

    • @Austin Rood the chain is as strong as its weakest link. It did happen once.

  9. The party should go with where the people are!👏

    It’s a plus and a minus? Consistency is never bad in a leader. Especially,when you need change.

    • If you are unaware of the evidence – you are admitting how u informed You are. You need a better source for news.

    • @Fernando Alvarez I make 100k doing software development. In a few more years I’ll probably be running my own business and employing people….who have real degrees in STEM rather than lesbian dance therapy or journalism.

      “Go get a tan like your daddy trump and let the adults talk.”

      Sure, before or after your dad mows my lawn or your mom cleans my house? “Fernando” lol.

      @Shyhalu see, the adults that are talking are me and your mother. And she said that you are my child. Now mind your manners,cause I’ll take away your gaming consoles.

    • @Fernando Alvarez Uh huh, that would make you someone who raised a trumpite…..that makes you a failure of a father then, you know – like most of your people.

      This isn’t a fight you can win. Just take your welfare check and close your mouth imo.
      Its not my fault you got a worthless degree and my comment struck close to home.

  11. I love how he says he is giving his money away. Looks to me like he is spending it on himself to make even more!

    • Jason Lewis spending money and claiming to give away money are two totally different activities. On the national debate stage he said he’s “giving away money” he isn’t. He’s a crooked liar who’s dying wish is to be president. It won’t happen. Good day sir.

    • @Alex AlexWTF kind of point is that? if he’s running for president it becomes our business.

    • Lol Jason Lewis…bloomberg doesn’t need you to defend him. He has 30 billion dollars he’s going to be just fine. Why don’t you make better use of your time

    • I’m not even American but there are way more billionaires than there are countries, and it is better for each rich person to pay the taxes that he is due for his respective government for it to manage that money and spend it as they see fit and as voted by the people, if it goes wrong, governments are held accountable, one entity, one fight, because otherwise, if each billionaire keeps large chunks of an economy, gets to own entire markets and then claim to finally start giving away the money while it’s all under his sole authority does not make it a very credible nor convincing statement, it’s just a lie.

    • https://fee.org/articles/democratic-socialism-doesnt-exist-like-the-loch-ness-monster-and-bigfoot-democratic-socialism-exists-only-in-myth/ A limited government is the political philosophy view that the government is empowered by law from a starting point of having no power, or where governmental power is restricted by law, usually in a written constitution. It is a key concept in the framers idea of liberalism. The 21st. Century accepted meaning of “liberalism” mirrors a 180° turn towards Marxist collectivist authority.

      The Constitution of the United States presents an example of the U.S. federal government not possessing any power except what is delegated to it by the Constitution, with the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution making explicit that powers not specifically delegated to the federal government are reserved for the people and the states.

      Magna Carta and the United States Constitution also represent important milestones in the limiting of governmental power. The earliest use of the term limited government dates back to King James VI and I in the late 16th century.When limited government is put into practice it  involves the protection of individual liberty from government intrusion, the opposite of Marxist collectivism.
      Where the government oversteps its authority, the people have the right, as listed in the Constitution, to make their grievances known through petition and through public elections for government office. As 16th President of the United States Abraham Lincoln once said, “Our government rests in public opinion. A principle tenet of the Republican conception of limited government is what Lincoln called self-government, a “sacred right” at the foundation of the sense of justice. The rationale behind this is simple: “No man is good enough to govern another man, without that other’s consent.” It is the adherence to republicanism that allows citizens to perpetuate the idea that the government must not only adhere to the Constitution, it must also listen to the will of the people, exercising Liberalism.. If the people disapprove of the actions of those in power and the rules they legislate, they have the ability to put new people in power who will better represent the public interest. Since, under the Constitution, the government is ultimately held accountable by the people, the public always has the opportunity to keep the government’s power in check. The worst mistake that the American people have made in the entire history of the United States was to permit the conversion of the federal government into a national-security state. That conversion has played a major role in the destruction of our liberty, privacy, and economic well-being.

      What is a national-security state? It is a totalitarian-like governmental structure that consists of an enormous military-intelligence establishment with extraordinary powers, such as indefinite detention, torture, secret surveillance, and even assassination of both citizens and foreigners. (Patriot Act)

      To put the matter in a larger context, North Korea is a national-security state. So are Egypt, China, Cuba, and Russia. And the United States. All of the regimes in those countries wield totalitarian-like powers.

    Bloomberg sent the memo typed on some hefty cheques to these reporters.

  13. State of the race: You either vote for Bernie or you vote to let the establishment choose their pick at the convention, because nobody else is getting 51 percent

      you either resist socialism or you suffer your worst defeat in decades.
      just a prediction

    • Nikita Khrushchev once said “Your children’s children will live under Communism. You Americans are so gullible… No, you won’t accept Communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism”. Sorry to say comrad, none of these Socialist psychopaths on that stage are going to be the next Communist dictator of The USA!

    • I didn’t vote for Trump last time but if it comes down to Trump or a socialist who never held a steady job until he was nearly 40, I’m going Trump. A thousand times Trump

  14. He is giving away his money? When should we expect our checks? Spending money and giving it away are 2 different things. He isnt giving anything to anybody if it isnt for an advertisement. lol

    • @James Stone Yeah you tell ’em James! These jerks need to lay off Mr. Bloomberg! lolol you remind me of Sam Jackson in Django Unchained

    • @jnsdkljfn Yessuh Massuh sorry I wrongthunk massuh!

    • @King Hassy I have to disagree.
      Any new college student goes in to admissions where they are told about the scholarships.
      Mainly low income are the ones recieving them

    • @Paul Krueger People of NJ pretty much figure the government will just squander all tax money and then ask for more

    • christopher weise | February 20, 2020 at 10:02 PM | Reply

      James Stone – Fulfilling your constitutional duties as POTUS, and using it to let criminals out of prison while filling your pockets with taxpayer money are 2 different things. Just sayin”

  15. Maya Angelou said “When someone tells you who they are, believe them the first time…”. Bloomberg’s desperately trying to change his spots….

  16. “Consistence is really good for Bernie but I also think he should become a flip flopper to unite the party. Lying is good.” Smh. That’s what I just heard. They’re just endorsing lying with extra steps.

  17. “Mayor Bloomberg, should you exist?” Eww CNN is whack. Bernie all the way.

  18. Insane and obscene that Bloomberg was allowed to run as a Democrat!

  19. “24% of the Democratic Party”
    Yeah, and rapidly going up!

    • @Don Rutter

      Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said that America has ‘socialism for the rich’ and ‘rugged free enterprise for the poor.’

    • @Don Rutter

      “I imagine you already know that I am much more socialistic in my economic theory than capitalistic… [Capitalism] started out with a noble and high motive… but like most human systems it fell victim to the very thing it was revolting against. So today capitalism has out-lived its usefulness.” MLK Jnr

    • @Don Rutter

      “And one day we must ask the question, ‘Why are there forty million poor people in America? And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth.’ When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. And I’m simply saying that more and more, we’ve got to begin to ask questions about the whole society…” MLK Jnr

    • @Don Rutter

      “[W]e are saying that something is wrong … with capitalism…. There must be better distribution of wealth and maybe America must move toward a democratic socialism.” MLK jnr

    • @Lexan Projects . Libertarians have been fooled into thinking authority implies government. They used liberal as a label for 20 years and now they’re pretending to be the real liberals. It’s an old ploy. They cite this John Locke guy as a classic liberal. He supported a ban on atheism. Lol. It’s very obvious double talk for people who didn’t get enough education.
      I did not read that entire post, I should admit….

  20. Bernies is losing it, he is so MAD!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
