    1. Admiral Crunch I was once an angry trump supporter like you bro so I understand. However your anger also implies you know trump doesn’t care about the middle class, also those manufacturers job reports he always brags about will be in vain with the advancement of Automation.

      Yangs plan ensures truck drivers and factory workers won’t be left behind by the rise of even more intelligent machinery. Have a good day bro the yang gang is with you

    1. @Alex Gee Nancy Pelosi does these same wine caves and no one says a word. This is politics, one guys wine is now not good because , no reason….just politics again.

    2. @Steven Castellanos I have no idea how he wins so I guess we have to vote for whoever the media decides then right.

    3. @E M. Not really, the “news” missed the point. Candidates need money to have a chance. He is doing what everyone has done since Bill Clinton. Without donors he and or any dem would have zero chance. Is that what they really want is for dems to lose so they can keep their ratings with the trump 24/7 channels.

    1. @llcooljay520. So… that’s a good thing. He actually has an ideological system he believes in as opposed to triangulating neoliberals who are beholden to big money interests.

    1. *This guy uses too many big words and my small brain can’t understand any of it

      I think this is what you mean

  1. Remember this! If a billionaire helps these politicians, they wants favors in return!! They influence policies and laws and change the US in favor of themselves!! Bernie is the ONLY one who doesn’t accept money!! It’s a simple choice.

    1. How is he running a campaign with no money?!? “Bernie is the only one who doesn’t accept money.” Obviously you mean corporate money. Right?

  2. Once you’ve accepted money from corporate donors, you’ve sold your soul to them and you can only do their bidding.

    A teabagger is just another code for a racist. That political party/movement originated & dismantled only during Obama’s presidency.

    I see right through you Petey.

    I’m an LGBTQIA supporter, but I don’t support corporate shills…sorry

    1. @Alex C I did and I like him very much. He was’nt that bad of a president. I also supported and voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries and in the 2016 election against Trump. In hindsight, because Hillary ran against Trump, and the fact that I am a never-trumper, I would do it again proudly multiple times over, because it was my only option.

      And when Obama ran, I would vote for him over Clinton again because that was my only option.

      But times change…& we’re living in a new era:
      I grew up, lived a little, and realised that a lot of the world’s issues arise from corporate greed, in addition to learning that corporations are donating to both parties in order to retain their power, thus, owning their politicians who’ve they’ve bought. I’ve realised that the world is not getting better if we repeat these same patterns.

      The one thing I do regret is not voting for Bernie against Clinton last time. I drank the corporate/DNC koolade and now feel like Bernie might have had a better chance against Trump.

      This time, I have the chance to alter my course, and I’m going to do so. I’m not the only one who has shifted their mindset.

      I have a right to evolve and change my perspective, just like you have a right to not agree with me or see me as hypocritical. -Do what you’d like. But you’re not going to make me change my views.

    2. @AnnMei Li I’m a Democrat, I voted for Bernie last primary, Clinton in the general and Obama both times. I’m just saying that you voted for Clinton and Obama who both took corporate money. This false narrative that some candidates can’t pass the purity test because they’ve done exactly what other candidates have done.

      I’m not trying to change your views – just make you aware of how hypocritical your view is.

    3. @Alex C Criticize me all you’d like, I can’t stop that. All I’m saying is that I can learn from my mistakes with more knowledge over time. I have nothing against Pete, but knowing what I know now, I will not make the same choices I made before. I stand by my first post. In it, I’m not condemning Pete, I just know now where he really stands. He has the right to take on whatever donors he’d like, and I don’t have to agree with it. I’m not calling him a monster for it. I like Obama and Clinton, but I know now that they had limitations based on their “alliances”

      Everyone in a sense is a hypocrite because we all evolve & learn from our mistakes with time and more knowledge. It’s called living life. I believe it’s a good thing, and not something to be judged for.

      I sometimes see comments for people who voted for Trump, who now totally regret it, and I opt to not condemn them. Why? Because they didn’t know better. They were conned by a huge complex that was determined to retain power and they trusted it.
      However, I do see liberals calling them stupid, criticizing them, condemning them, calling them names and making them feel bad about their past decisions, instead of respecting and acknowledging the growth they’ve made in present time.

      Why criticize people who are now on the same side of you? How does that create comraderie amongst each other? How does that help us work together to fight against Trump? Let’s save the divisive actions and words towards the other party post-party nomination time.

    4. @Alex C BTW, the definition of hypocrisy is based in the present. For example, if I posted my original post, then voted for Pete or Biden. It’s about condemning something, and then intending on doing that very thing in the present or future. It’s about knowingly deceiving people in the present, not about your past mistakes that you won’t make again.

  3. When is MSNBC gonna give up on Pete? This is a two horse race, and yet they still won’t talk about Bernie. Yang and Tulsi would be doing much better too, if they didn’t ignore or smear everyone who isn’t a part of their establishment bubble.

    1. @Ashwani K Jha He’s been groomed for high office by democratic establishment since his first mayoral run in 2011, how come speech writers, consultants and ambassadors for Barack Obama were donating to him back then?

    2. @David Bower His message has gotten people excited, that’s why he’s the target of all the attacks. No one would care if he wasn’t doing so well. And Warren and Sanders have both received huge high dollar fundraisers within the past 5 years. They both fail their own purity tests.

    3. @Mike G Unless Bernie’s current campaign is corrupted then I fail to see how that would even be relevant.
      Pete’s message isn’t popular, his “popularity” is nothing more than a media creation and is being targeted because he’s super weak and they all smell blood, ffs even Klobuchar is throwing swings at him that are landing.

    1. s sw no it’s because billionaires should not be picking the nominee. That’s super obvious. That’s not a democracy friend.

    2. I don’t know where you’re finding intelligent and reasonable. Dancing around questions and saying a whole bunch of empty words whilst saying nothing at all isn’t the kind of intelligence we need in the White House. It’s crystal clear he’s interested in nothing else other than his own ego and the hope he can make his wallet fat by selling you and I down the river. We are fodder to him.

    1. MSNBC is in debt to their advertisers. Big pharma. Airplane producers (military industrial complex). They are only in it for corporate warmongering democrats; not real labour supporters.

    1. Both of these candidates are garbage… Petes M4A who want it will simply put the old and the poor on an inferior system to that of the private market, thus disincentivizing further movement towards universal coverage. Meanwhile private insurance will reap the benefits of fewer claims being made while still holding prices thus increasing personal profits. Meanwhile Klobuchar has no platform to her campaign what so ever, what issue does she stand on?

      Universal systems are strong just as social security and public K-12 are strong and any outright attack on either is political suicide.

    2. @Iam Murphy For real, its sad to see the cable watchers so absorbed in image as opposed to what impact these candidates will actually have in our lives

  4. Take contributions from whomever you want, but if you’re plying rich people with expensive dinners in opulent venues behind closed doors then you’re after something more than just contributions.

    1. Press was present, the donors have had the same event for Obama, Hillary Clinton, Warren, the latter just last year!

  5. Besides Biden, Warren and Sanders none of the other bozos have any chance of getting the South or Bible Belt to vote for them; so what are they up to? Even Warren and Sanders are going to be attacked as Commies! Why should our government work for us; the poor 1% need more tax breaks. Still you don’t have worry, by this time next year your Idol god drumpf will have started the war, declared martial law and suspend elections! Then you will not have to worry about self-rule anymore. Your 1% owners controlled senate and installed corporate judges will back their puppet! So get your favorite Corporate Flags out, whatever flag you like, USA, The Patriots or The Yankees, it doesn’t matter. As long as you bow down to your 1% owners! Our Democracy is Dead, corporation are now “We The People” and money is “Free Speech.” The only question left now is, are you going to jump into your owner’s grinder; or walk away and let their Beast system die? youtube.com/watch?v=Xbp6umQT58A You should watch it all, but at least @ 8:23, you’ll see the start of phase 2; this is where we are today.

  6. “In summary, I selflessly gave in to corruption and sacrificed my credibility to free you from Trump. You’re welcome.”

  7. The Presidency should be held to people that make smart decisions that affect generations to come, such as those of Peter Buttigieg, not a marketeer who knows nothing other than how to sell his name like spankyboy.
