      Murder squad fantasy? Some think that had the USSR won the Cold War and occupied the West like they occupied Eastern Europe, that there would have been executions and “disappearances” of journalists like there was in Eastern Europe then…..and just like in Russia today!
      But that would have never happened here if they had occupied the West…..would it?

    • @88Gibson LesPaul Your point is moot. Chris Mathews doesn’t grok that Senator Sanders is a democratic socialist not an oligarch masquerading as a proletariat. Mr. Mathews to me was unhinged fear mongering. Side note did you see the “digital brown shirts” comment from Chuck Todd? Yikes. Meanwhile AG Barr and President Trump are ushering in authoritarian regime change right now. Sure Hit me up with some GAO research on what impacts UBI, M4A, living wages, wealth taxation, VAT implementation etc would have on have on our inequitable economy. I’d love to see some fairness and equality Injustice and the pursuit of happiness.

    Congratulations on all of your success Blondie…

      Yeah, she was really a talent and a brain. When she first came out, I confused her with the German singer that did 99 Luftballons but I soon got it right.

      @88Gibson LesPaul In the time of disco… You could not walk into a disco in Germany without Blondie kicking it out…. I like Nina too… Truthfully, we were rockers and skeptical of Blondie’s melodic incantations… We lost our grip over time though…. a girl who got on the school bus first had a Blondie tape…. first come first served… The first few months we begged for the Clash, but got none…. she eventually moved on to Boston and the Eagles, but the damage was done… We listened to Blondie and liked it…

  5. >:p~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Sunday Girl” was the most beautiful song Blondie ever did.

  6. You red scared on Bernie! I’ll give you credit when you get to half true……

  7. Republicans are so pathetic right now. Except Mitt.

  8. And the gop told half truths before gwbush. Now they openly lie..

  9. Debbie is cooooooooooollllllllll!!!!!!!

  10. Drumpf never tells a half truth. That would have some truth and he is allergic to truth.
    I miss presidents.
    I miss Obama.

  11. Speaking of blondies, what exactly is ivanka doing these days? 🤔 Other than sexually frustrating her daddy! 🤣🤣🤣

  12. 1) I can’t tell you how great Debbie Harry is. She’s an American rock n’ roll icon. Blondie is always on my iPod.
    2) It appears she had some work done, and at her age, she had nothing to lose, and everything to gain. She looks great.
    3) I’m gonna buy her book. I wonder what she has to say now, that hasn’t been said before. She is the epitome of cool.

  13. Love Debbie!

  14. Ari, are you pushing his redemption story? The screaming harpie needs to be put out to pasture.

  15. Wow, Debbie!

  16. Oh thank you msnbc for Debby Harry’s views on cell phones at parties. I’ve been dying to hear her opinions. That’s why I watch.

  17. Well, Debbie was bursting with cheerful conversation!?!

  18. @2:45 interviewer interrupting Debbie Harry. Why do we trust celebrities to convince us on the vote?

  19. I love Chris Mathews! I was so sorry to him dealing with cancer. 😖

      What? Where’d you hear that? Are you mixing him up with rush? Ain’t too sad hearing about that.
      WTF. Debbie hardly got two words in.

  20. When the phones come out,the party is over.
