    MSNBC is having a hard time hiding their glee about Bernie’s demise.

    • @R L T – Pearls before swine. smh.

    • @Bat Boy Smidhooey is not thine destiny…but gaseous clouds encircle your gourd.

    • @R L T – Whatever, Joe Exotic. 🤣

      @Thomas Armsworthy Jr I almost think Bernie is working for Trump! Lol because Iwe all felt the Bern! In 2o16 then the absolute betrayal when Bernie backed Hillary! Again hopeful for Bernie 2o2o but in good conscience can not vote for Biden!

      Here is the petition for Bernie to run 3th party against the DNC! Share it!!

      We should let him see how much we would support that move even though the chance of him accepting is super slim!

      That might finally guarantee the 3th party a significantely higher percentage and be the first historic step towards breaking the idiotic, undemocratic 2 party system. If the 3th Party managed to reach the 5% they would get matching funds, be listed on every ballot and most importantly be on the debate stage (the exposure thats sooo incredibly important in order to change that image of the 3th party being the guys who never stand a chance anyway)
      So at this point ist not even about winning but paving the way for a 3th party who actually represents the working people. Some prevision is needed here guys! 😉

      Vote blue no matter who is the biggest BS I’ve ever heard!

      DONT LET YOUR VOTE + BERNIES MOVEMENT GO TO WASTE GUYS! Vote green…be it with or without Bernie!

  2. If you’re ever wondering why the US has a high amount of non-voters…

    • Is it cause bernie and biden were more trash than hillary?

      @B for Thigh as a indipendent conservative leaning trump supporter i agree. I didn’t agree with most of Bernies policies/”progresive vomit” but what i disagree with MORE is the DNCs clear disregard for it’s grass roots voting base and rigging in favor of corporate democrats. My moms a Bernie supporter, same with my brother (who im certain will now be voting Trump).. I respect them both immensely and it honestly hurt to watch the DNC rob them of a fair chance.

    • @JJoe So those of us who are 40, 50 and 60+ don’t count? Thanks for yet another biased, and unsubstantiated _opinion_ .

      “You’re”? You must be a liberal

  3. Good luck in your Senate Race Joe!

  4. Steve Thomas | April 9, 2020 at 7:34 AM | Reply

    Hope you’re happy DNC and MSM!

    • Joe told them to go learn to code… 😂

    • Steve Thomas – while the Republicans hand huge conglomerates billions and try to appear generous with their bs small business loans and unemployment that people aren’t being able to get, keep blaming the only people who try at all to protect our rights. But you’ll be looking out of your cage one day at your Tyrant Trump, thinking geee – why didn’t i realize this sooner.

    • You bet they’re happy.
      Now the next president will be be either Trump or Biden.
      In both cases their wealth is save for another 4 years. Whoever wins now: We lose and they win.

    • A Krenwinkle | April 9, 2020 at 6:35 PM | Reply

      @Soshintsu No, not either Trump or Biden, just Trump. Thank you, MSNBC, among others, for torpedoing the candidate who could have beaten Trump. The way the DNC and the media propped up Hillary in 2016 failed in the general. Same thing this time around with Biden. Well, we survived four years of Trump, we’ll survive another. But will the Democratic party survive? SHOULD the Democratic party survive?

    • ​@A Krenwinkle I kinda feel the same. Biden will be an even tougher sell than Hillary was.
      People who want change know by now that Biden only stands for every single thing that was already wrong with the USA before Trump was even in politics.
      Mass incarceration, the Irak War, the Patriot Act, the Financial Crisis, the way he treated Anita Hill – I’ve seen Republicans who were not as right-wing as him.
      Add to that how boring and incompetent he looks in every situation.
      Hillary was pretty bad too, but at least she seemed competent. Even people who think she’s a corrupt monster at least agree that she must be pretty smart.

      On the other hand, Trump has proven in the last years that he really is too dumb, too corrupt and too dangerous to have any power at all.
      And the childish way he behaves adds insult to injury.
      His incompetence and his fragile personality have literally cost lives and will continue to do so. Give him a second term and the blood will be on your hands too.

      All in all I’m glad I can’t vote in the election anyway. I wouldn’t have had much of a problem to vote for Hillary as the lesser evil, but the choice in 2020 makes me heave every time I imagine casting the vote.

    The media DNC were all against Bernie he couldn’t win the battle

    • They were against Trump too…and he won. So much for your theory.

    • Henry Matthews | April 9, 2020 at 9:25 AM | Reply

      @R L T yeah, but you understand the dnc controls the delicates. So the only way to be the Democratic nominee you have them vote for you not the people so he would never get it

    • @Henry Matthews Which is why the DNC needs a clean slate.

  8. My name is Joe Biden!!!
    And I forgot why am I here🤷‍♂️👨🏻‍🦳????

    • My name is Donald Trump – and most people don’t know this, but I have a very good brain – but many people don’t know this. lmaooooo You’re right traitor trump – most people don’t realize how murderously dangerous you actually are.

      @R S You misspelled Clinton and Obama … its C-A-N-K-L-E-S and B-A-R-R-Y.

  9. The wall Bernie hit was MSNBC’s love of the current power structure ,and corruption . And a giant boost to Biden in free press and total disregard of Bernie Sanders at the same time. When Biden loses in November the fault will lie with corporate media not with the progressive wing of the party.

    • @K Kondor Most likely just a bot reacting to the keyword “wall”.
      Don’t blame it – blame its owner for being too lazy to update it to the 2020 version 😛

      They disregard Sanders because he is irrelevant. He is a Communist and America abhors Communists, except for the leftist elites who tend to love dictators and murderous commies.

    • @Natty Bumppo I know! Those arrogant leftists… BUT they are losing everything in the world right now so let them continue…

    • @URFTBOUND4LIFE And what would Bolshevik Bernie do? Go buy another house with your donation…Hahahhah sucker.

    • @Rose Lilly I wish you weren’t so blind to what’s actually happening here. I’m sure you’re a nice person who has just fallen for the bs of a tyrant. Trump is Hitler believe me only he isn’t after the Jews this time. He’s after everyone and anyone who isn’t a billionaire.

    Congratulations to 4 more years of Trump! There is no enthusiasm about Biden!!! Trump is going to slaughter him

    • Trump will slaughter you too Isabell Lippold. But you won’t believe that now. When you have no food for your family, no home THEN you’ll know.

    • @R S Like when trump keeps profiting off their family’s suffering? Or maybe when his agents steal medical supplies…

      @Isabell Lippold How is he letting thousands die? Since you are a dumpster diver maybe you can prevent this pandemic. Enlighten us with your brilliance.

  13. That wall is the DNC

  14. How’s Biden going with that sexual assault charge.

  15. Imagine being a Democrat and knowing you have to vote for Joe Biden to get your parties man back in the White House. Talk about self inflicted suicide!

    • #demexit2020 going green party

    • @hansboofer you’re probably right – simply because Traitor Trump depends on stupid people like you who are willing to believe total nonsense because your IDOL said it. Sadly we will all pay for your stupidity. I wish I could be there when they come and take YOUR HOME, YOUR MONEY, YOUR SAFETY. But oh well.

    • @R S You have many other countries to which you can elect to hunker down during the second term of your president; viz., Mexico, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, any of the countries who are members of the EU, New Zealand, Chile, The Marshall or The Solomon Islands, UK, and one that I think would be be most appropriate for losers like yourself: Canada. No language barriers – even with your risible Quebecois accent – American baseball and basketball out of Toronto, socialized medicine, plenty of white milk to drink and white bread to eat, and BEST of all: You can look up Whoopi and Behar when ya get there, and in no time you can have yourself snugly sandwiched between those fat snack cakes each and every night during those long, cold Canadian winters. Have a nice move; see ya January 21st, 2025. Your ‘ol Uncle Hans in….The Bronx.

    • I can’t imagine being a democrat and I don’t want to be one. They have embraced the evils of socialism and have lost their minds.

    • @Matheus Rodrigues Good deal with Trump for 4 more years. Maybe after the disaster he creates, you fools will learn to run candidates that are worth voting for.

    • Can’t imagine you’re this thick Smoke on the Water. STOP SEPARATING THE PARTIES. The only parties left are THE RICH AND THE Rest of us. That’s the reality. If you think either party is the guilty one then you’ve bought the rich’s bs.

    As a conservative I can’t stop laughing

    • @Doug C TRAITOR TYRANICAL TRUMP. Help yourselves – I don’t think you’ll be laughing when they take your money, your job, your home and they will. A Tyrant isn’t even as particular as this covid virus. Unless you’ve personally lined Trumps scummy pocket, you’re in line to be destroyed. Count on it.

      As a socialist, remember this promise. You are going to laugh your guts off come November. And we’ll be laughing with you.
      Whatever our differences, you did a real job pushing your party out of the hands of the corporates and into then hands of the people. Its our turn to return the favour.

    • Well you’re gonna be screwed as well from the coming environment collapse, I don’t see how that’s funny.

    • @Pat C if you can’t come up with a clever comeback then I’m leaving the comment section 🗿
