  1. Bernie Sanders: the most honest and sincere man of integrity that I have ever seen in American politics. Sanders understands the plight of the ordinary worker; he knows that the oligarchs are pillaging and thieving for themselves; he is genuine in his pursuit to help ordinary Americans. He is a good man. As he says: vote Biden. If not, embrace fascism, and kiss your chances of survival goodbye. That simple.

    • @Katie Mcdavid delusional

    • @Sylvia Herndon what a complete wacko you are. Typical liberal.

    • @Gail Baer you are another gullible, blinded by hatred , and delusional, seek help.

      @Oddvard Myrnes shameful isn’t it. You provide facts and just a fraction of Bidens history they bury their head in the sand hurling insults. The American public at large IS as stupid as Washington thinks we are huh

      @Roger Pieronski ..Absolutly NOT. The American people is not dummer than anybody else. The problem is they are uneducated on political issues and have been gaslighted (systematicly) by the MSM after Clinton singed the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecommunications_Act_of_1996) that gave the media up to the Oligarcs. You are fed a constant cocktail of disinformation and lies that have led to the situation you are in now. How can you call a people that have had such influence on art, music, film, science and human rights world wide as the Americans have for dumb? You simply can’t. American people are great. Fun lovin, friendly, helpfull, kind and hard working. That is the American people. Break the two party system. Vote GREEN and do it NOW!

    Bernie will have a significant voice within the Biden Administration, and, be a key ally in the Senate. We need his guidance in these perilous times.

    • James Smythe | August 2, 2020 at 9:15 PM | Reply

      Lol someone doesn’t understand politics. Biden’s corporate donors would never allow Bernie to have a role.

    • Most definitely as he should a good Man we need you Bernie don’t stop fighting for us…

    • News Flash>>> Joe already lost by proclaiming” I will go down as the most progressive president in history”. And if that’s not enough President Trump just received the endorsement of Law enforcement which he didn’t even have in 2016. And if that still doesn’t do it then Joe will be hammered in the debates if he shows up. And if he doesn’t show up to the debates then people will know he’s to weak to defend what he he been told to believe. Either way Joe loses. Democrats are in panic mode and using the same old race card mixed with the new phobe
      Card.

      Bernie will play NO PART in a Biden administration because Joe has made the promise that nothing will substantially change under his administration.

    • i love bernie but no. biden clan are corporate neo liberal war mongers

    I respect Bernie. One of the few with integrity.

    • @NDFOOTBALL As most of trump supports would rather be Communists than Democrats, maybe they will vote for Biden with all this confusion.

    • @Kevan Gunn Tell me about his productivity at the hippie farm.
      Tell me of one major piece of legislation he has initiated.
      Tell me about his productivity at a job outside of government.

      He is good at spending other people’s money.

    • @bit jockeyOh please, research it yourself, you might just learn something. Here’s your starter for ten, Bernie introduced a bill that would raise the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $15 an hour, it’s difficult to do anything when McConnell holds everything up.

    • @Kevan Gunn I have researched this which is why I said it.

      Good for Mitch! Again, other people’s money.

    • @bit jockey No, you asked it. If you honestly believe Mitch is good? then no amount of education can raise your IQ higher than that of a tree frog.no offense.

  4. I just want to cry every time that I see Bernie now, still fighting for American workers, when he could have been exactly the President needed now. The last straw was when his terrific amendment was voted down in the Senate last week. What a difference that $7.4 billion wd have made to healthcare, social security, education, housing, unemployment benefit. Kamala Harris and Tammy Duckworth both voted against the amendment, which imo shows clearly that all they care about is the VP job, NOT the welfare of ordinary people. Incredible to think how many millions in the richest country in the world are now in the same dire situation as poor people in underdeveloped countries. Trump* called them “shithole” countries, and that’s what he’s turning USA into now, for millions and millions of Americans.

    • SunRae* ** he pulled the democrat party more left. Even if A Neolib like joe Biden gets elected he will have pressure on him to include some aspects of Bernie’s policy into his own.

    • @Rainlakuma justice democrats like AOC will ensure it by increasing public pressure.

    • Forza Juve I completely agree, which is a great thing and why I support her whole heartedly. Bernie’s weakness is that he isn’t willing to completely throw the entire establishment under the bus, which is quite understandable. He started to spin the wheel of change, it’s up to the next generation of politicians to build upon the foundation Bernie helped build for them. I’m not going to completely dismiss Joe Biden, it’s possible that he ends up being one of the most progressive presidents in modern history, but I’m not enthusiastic about him. I have complete faith in AOC for being the torch bearer of the ideal progressive society Bernie envisioned while also having much more of the influence and charisma needed to lead.

    • @Rainlakuma sadly you just had DNC voting on policies. No progressive issues passed

    • The stinking Democraps are corporate-owned just like the Republicraps. They can’t handle The Bern….

  5. Andrew Brent | August 2, 2020 at 9:55 PM | Reply

    It’s so good just to see Bernie’s face and hear his sane, no-nonsense explanations. The man understands the issues and isn’t afraid to lay it all out there. He’s literally the opposite of the Orange Clown. I hope his and other progressive politicians have a voice in Biden’s White House. Still feeling the Bern!

    Nobody chooses where he/she’s born.
    Nobody chooses his parents.
    Nobody has equal chances.

    Some people will need help!
    Christians should follow Jesus example…

    • Are there really Christians in the Republican Party? How can there be when the Republicans stink to HIGH HEAVEN?

    • Earth Star you people are so hypocritical it’s crazy. You can riot/protest in the streets 200+ people but we can’t go to church on a sunday? The Democrats have barely given any attention to religions lately unless we r talking about Muslim.😂 HAPPY Eid ul-Adha!

    • Cross C Cologne | August 4, 2020 at 10:45 AM | Reply

      @C I must tell you that in South Korea it all started with a religious service! Just saying. Bcs it’s indoors! Protests are outdoors w/social distancing and masks! So you really can’t compare apples with pears.
      Why do you think they closed down Mecca for the very first time in its existence? Religious gathering even here in Germany have been superspreadors. That’s why you should pray with your family at home, read from the Bible and maybe even talk about it.

  7. He is the best of the best that still exist, let’s hope and pray that there are more of this kind of human beings that are in power to do something that matter….it is so strange that some can not see the good that shines right in front of their eyes… to whom who are asking about donation moneys , I need to point out a fact , that you are asking the wrong question from the wrong person…you don’t even need to ask such questions from Bernie, because his accountability is never in question and he has always been very transparent…he is what you see, genuine human being who cares for what happens to real people …there are not many like him, I just hope and pray that I’m wrong and there are many people like him who can make a positive difference in other people’s lives…we are naturally brought to this world to make a positive difference during our tiny time on this world, so , he is all organic as organic can be, by the way, I’m not a democrat or republican …you don’t need to attach yourself to any thing in order to see the truth…

    Imagine how bernie would have responded to covid if he was president vs how trump has completly ballsed it up.

    • Robert Douglas | August 4, 2020 at 11:54 AM | Reply

      Bernie would have been on TV the first day taking care of business. Listening to scientists and doing what’s best for working people. We couldn’t even buy toilet paper 🤔

    • m r he cared too much to have people risk getting sick to go out vote for him

    • Imagine if MSNBC didn’t use the pied piper strategy to force Trump on us. I can’t imagine democrats running a fair election. Superdelegates were created to prevent people like Bernie from getting the nomination. So it’s beyond my imagination to envision an election where the democrats allow someone like him to win

    • Jim Willeford | August 4, 2020 at 9:04 PM | Reply

      scrambledeggsTV Great point. But if we are imaging stuff. Just imagine how different things would look if he had urged, pushed his cadre to vote Clinton, once she was nominated in 2016. No Trump, no right wing scotus! Just imagine.

    • @Jim Willeford – He did and he campaigned extensively for her. Mind you, the anti-Bernie propaganda narrative was so strong amongst the Democratic establishment, that you may have been duped into believing otherwise. Clinton and the Democratic establishment have no-one to blame but themselves, for not defeating Trump. It’s politically expedient for them to blame it all on Bernie and progressives. As it is, I can certainly understand if some progressives don’t vote, or vote 3rd party. It’s not something I’d advocate in this election but it’s perfectly understandable. The Democrats can’t win without them, yet their votes are taken for granted and their views ignored. Progressive candidates are routinely blocked, by the Democratic establishment, by means both fair and foul. Once defeated they demand that progressives vote for whichever neoliberal candidate has been chosen, even though the candidate won’t enact any progressive policies. If that candidate wins, the progressives are ignored. If that candidate loses, the progressives are blamed for the defeat. As I said earlier, I urge everyone to vote Biden in this election. Getting rid of Trump is too important. However, if the Democratic establishment keep treating it’s progressive wing like it has, it will end up losing them altogether.

    Remember when this guy was talking about free healthcare, student debt forgiveness, climate change and lowering the age for social security?
    Sounds good right about now, doesn’t it?

    • Arthur Anderson, Jr. – Also, you didn’t answer my question.

      What does “fair share” mean, exactly? Bc again, that is implying Americans who earn more aren’t paying enough taxes, even though they are in the highest tax bracket already.

    • Arthur Anderson, Jr. | August 4, 2020 at 9:29 AM | Reply

      @Ray S
      And again you do the research. I know what I mean and have explained to you specifically. The rich should pay their fair share as they did in the 1940’s & ’50’s or even ’60’s. Look it up for yourself. Not fair that the rich and corp do not pay any taxes. And most do NOT. FACT!!!

    • Arthur Anderson, Jr. – The “rich” only a small fraction of the population. Also, name the last time you worked for a broke person…

      Point is, just because I earn less money than lets say, Bill Gates, that doesn’t mean Im entitled to his money.

      Since when has taking from others by force been ok?

    • @Ray S The obscenely rich.

    • Mitch Pynn – Still doesn’t matter. Thats a small fraction of the population of the US. They don’t make/break the economy.

      Small to midsized business keep the economy afloat. Not just “big business” or the “obscenely rich”.

  10. Mr. Sanders is clearly listening to his constituents. Many should follow his lead.
    Every point he’s raised is beyond valid.

    The senate republicans backing the White House and trump are flat out insane, gaslighting narcissists.

    Bernie has been pushing the same agenda for over 40 years. He has stayed true to his beliefs even if it cost him the nomination from his party.. he is a true selfless politician.

    • @Objective Freethought ya ya right wing propoganda trying to scrutinize every mistake of a person while completely ignoring the sins of neoliberals

    • Objective Freethought | August 4, 2020 at 1:55 AM | Reply

      @Tom y Melon you should probably watch the whole video. You sound really, really silly.

    • @Objective Freethought thank you for being concerned for America. But your video is just conjecture. If you are so concerned, maybe it would be worth the effort to see what Bernie is about.

    • @Objective Freethought anyway if you would really like to enlighten us on how “Bernie lies” then give short, specific examples that can easily be fact checked. God bless. I hope at the same time you challenge yourself and see what he stands for

    • cost him last time, this time he dropped out

  12. You can just tell when someone isn’t even greedy for power, just wants what’s right to happen

    • @Monika M Did you ever take a history class? You have no idea what you are talking about. Where did you receive your so called education? What the heck are they teaching you people today? I have over 40+ years studying how the Nazi’s took over Germany and how the Bolsheviks took over Russia. Really no difference between them. You do know the Nazi party was called The National Socialist Party right? Mussolini was head of the National Fascist Party. A friend of Hitler. He was a full fledged Socialist/Communist. There is no difference between communism and socialism. Both have murdered 100s of millions of people throughout history. Mao was head of the Communist Party Of China. Pol Pot was a Marxist socialist who murdered over a million people. Hugo Chavez was head of the United Socialist Party. No wonder all you leftists have no clue what you are talking about. Our education system is a joke anymore.

      @outdoor fun The irony …

    • @Jacob Sahlmueller You can take 90% of all the money the top 10% wager earners earn and it still would not come close to paying for Medicare For All. All the studies have been done already. It is the exact reason Bernie Sanders refused to answer one simple question. Where are you getting the money?

    • Jacob Sahlmueller | August 4, 2020 at 2:44 AM | Reply

      @outdoor fun You … you realize most of the first world has socialized medicine right? I don’t live in America, and it’s very confusing to watch people make these kinds of arguments that I *know* are incorrect because I have physically seen it. Please do not believe every argument you hear, a lot of people have a lot of money to gain by lying to you.

    • @Silver Jones They are not going to listen to anyone. They have been programmed their entire life through our broken education system. Not a single one of them knows any factual history. Just twisted garbage. The sad part. They are all modern day slaves and they don’t even know it or happy with being one.

    • We don’t deserve him.

    • Well said. Be nice to actually have real debate of ideas, and politicians representing all of the countries needs. Just corporate interest now, 6% of legislation goes to the voice of the people.

      @earthy voyager gee biden was backed by republicans when biden demanded the prosecutor be fired, no one backed trump on his blackmail attempt. biden works in the light and trump in the dark because what trump does dies in the light.

    • @anne-marie Andrews biden will be the worst president in the history of America… stop your nonsense arguments and vote for trump because when you see how biden does this world dirty we will say we told u so
