    Hook Bernie up with gene therapies and he’s straight.

      If Trump had a heart attack like Bernie did you morons would all be calling for him to step down because of that. Moron.

    • If Obama or any other candidate did Heist horse 1/2 the things that Trump says ended you will be asking for more then his impeachment the man might have have a heart attack but he has more vigor and more stamina and most candidates I’ve seen got on that stage I’m talking about past and present

    • @STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS Trump is already unhealthy mentally and physically. That didn’t stop him from taking the presidency. Most people hate Trump not because of his health issues, but his bad policies. Don’t delude yourself in thinking more than half the country is in favor of impeach and remove. But go on ahead and keep wearing those cheap Chinese-made MAGA dunce caps. Makes dumbasses easier to identify.

    • @Redbird Always trust a child that has a red bird. She’s always easier to identify. Sorry snowflake I assumed your gender.

  2. Liberal Social Democracy is the natural evolution of a Democracy. That means investing in your citizenry’s quality education & healthcare. Evolve or become a slave to the system or Dictator.

    • MidScream1 I think I detect the stench of Fox News. It seems to me that American society, apart from being very sick, is extremely Darwinian in that, if you are not healthy and rich, life becomes a struggle. Imagine the scenario of you in your 50’s developing a stroke or some other incapacitating illness, losing your job, your income, your health insurance, your home, etc, etc. Your present society would not be caring enough to help you pick up the pieces. That’s socialism, not communism, something that Americans in general seem incapable of understanding.

    • @docfloc no Socialism 🙂

    • P J Sadly “big money” politics in America results in an extraordinary number of rich, greedy and corrupt people become leaders of your country which will always favour the GOP and have the upper hand over the efforts of your 10’s of millions. Unless of course America develops a conscience, but I don’t see that coming in the near future.

    • MidScream1 It’s clear you can’t see beyond the end of your nose. Bye, bye.

  3. Joe Biden can play the wisdom card? Ok let us look at few really important turns the country took, Iraq war, NAFTA , Biden was fore both of them and Bernie against both of them how is that for wisdom?

    While age is indeed a factor and should be; I am more concerned about term limits that allow lawmakers to serve for decades creating an environment whereby corruption is endemic and an occupational byproduct of government.

  5. The wisdom that comes with Biden is crime bill, bankruptcy bill , nafta and Iraq war

  6. Nice try msnbc on trying to attack Sanders because he will win

  7. MSNBC and CNN are like satires of actual news outlets, and their audience is like a satire of actual viewers, right?

  8. Bernie had the most energy tonight, just saying .

  9. MSNBC is trying to pull the spin now to somehow discredit Sanders on his strong performance tonight. MSNBC is a complete joke

    • Complete

    • I use to listen to them for progressive news…they’ve exposed themselves as just CNN with “blue tinting”…barely. Corporate news doesn’t see political party, just the party of money

    • @Chris Ducat MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC FOX NEWS, etc host are millionaires who are being paid by Billionaires but they give a false narrative of what the American people actually want because what the American people want doesn’t inline with the cooperate elites and all the benefits they are getting from a corrupt system.

      And his endorsement from the squad

  10. Imagine talking about candidates age on a news channel when the focus should be on their policies. Malaysia’s prime minister is 90+ btw

  11. How about the poll you guys took down that showed 90%+ people said NO to “should Bernie drop out” ?

  12. Meanwhile, President Jimmy Carter is 95 and building houses for the homeless. Age is a number, authenticity and consistency matter most! Bernie 2020

      Beau Crawford, hahahahaha! Carter can barely walk. Building homes? Hahahahaha!!!!! #TRUMP2020. #MAGA2020
      Bernie has as much shot in getting the nomination as you do.

    • Yeah Trump 2O2O Bernie Never 🙂

    • Beau Crawford—That’s great to hear. Jimmy 2020…….

    • @First Name Last Name MAGA=Make America Gag Again Carter can barely walk ? You can barely think…..

      Jon Emery, wow; what a thoughtful comeback. Did you think of that all by your lonesome? I’m very proud of you. Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, as seen by the delusional, young voting base of the Democratic Party: Too male, too pale, and too stale; and, therefore, doomed to fail. Hahahahaha!
      #Trump2020 🇺🇸

  13. At least Bernie’s ideas aren’t dead on arrival: all the other candidates will cater to corporate interests (even beloved Warren, whose health care plan is flimsy, at best). I’ll take that energy every day of the week.

    • @Saltponds239 Just so you know I’m in no way democrat or republican, I support whatever canidate makes most sense for me regardless of party in many cases they both appear the same, as for the tents I think they would decrease under Yang they are there because those people arent having the oppurtunities or arent having the mental and or drug help they need to achieve better things california isn’t doing anything for them to have a better life they do better living off the government in tents than they would working a minimum wage job so why would they work? Also housing is outrageously expensive in parts of california I have a friend that pays 3500 a month just to rent in long beach while I own my home and pay under 1000 a month for my mortgage so surely the prices have something to do with it and what type of jobs are those exactly? Are they things anyone can do or things you need a special degree or certification to do because the people in those tents likely cant reach the means to pay for the education to get those jobs or may not even want to do those jobs doesnt everyone want to have a job they enjoy doing? That is another thing Yang would have more people enjoying the work they do

    • @mclaren fan California- Welfare State! They’ve got a quarter million homeless that they don’t even help.
      Liberalism is so extreme in California they’re leaving in droves.
      Andrew Yang’s ideas are so horrible his campaign hopes are dismal. I like him as a person but not on board with freeshit. I’ve struggled just like everyone in America and I’m most certainly not giving MY hard earned money up for lazy people. The current unemployment, GDP and economic growth leaves no reason for someone to be poor.

    • @Jamal K. You wouldnt be giving anything up you would be getting more in return for your hard work as would every American a value added tax and other factors would pay for it mostly from companies that arent paying taxes now and I brought up california because that was the state the salt guy was bringing up I live in the east but again you dont have to agree just want Yang to recieve a fair amount of time to spread his message on equal playing field too many people are misinterperting his message and drawing conclusions that are off base or not getting the chance to hear it at all

    • @mclaren fan I believe you’re living in a Bernie state of mind. But I like Yang more than all those other clowns.

  14. Fake news!! Y’all Never giver Bernie a break! My goodness

    Calm down with the heart attack and agism. My dad had open heart surgery 15 years ago, he is close to 90 years old and still going strong.

  16. Age does not equal wisdom. Biden has acuity issues.

  17. This is a political attack on Bernie Sanders

  18. The media doesn’t want Bernie to win.

    • Cindy Weir he is never going to win. I like Bernie but his ideas are to far left with many of the boomers. The millennials need the boomers to win. I wish they could be more patient. There time is coming.

      Kevin stevens says you. Look let’s take your statement and look at it in about a year. Bernie policies are more like fdr in a sense. He wants to change the issues we have and he could if he was elected.

    • Moultonlava Gaming I am not arguing that point. I am a boomer who knows a lot of boomers. They are old school Dems. They think he is to far left. They are more centrist. I myself like Bernies ideas and think he could win. If we don’t come together no matter who gets the nomination we will have 4 more years of Trumpy

    • @Kevin stevens The millenials are going to be the ones that give Bernie the push he needs to win. Not the boomers, your generation and perception of politics is obsolete. Democratic voters will never elect another establishment candidate again. You wanna shill for the corporations and status quo, change your status to Republican.

  19. BS Bernie attack, stop the smearing, stop the ageism.

  20. Cheney had his first of FIVE heart attacks when he was 37 and he was VP for eight years. Whatever.
