    Clown show

    • I know right?!

      It’s almost as bad as watching Trump pretending to be President for the last two and a half years lol huh?!

      Except they’re not NEARLY as misogynistic hateful bigoted xenophobic or corrupt!

      Which, by all standards, makes any one of them a VAST improvement.

    • @TWSTF 8 Yep, and you’re gonna watch him for 5 1/4 more years.
      TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP 😭
      2000 MORE DAYS AND NIGHTS!😂🤣😄👌✌

    • Skippybilly Skippybilly this was painful to watch. And to top it off, creepy uncle Joe’s teeth almost fell out! 🤭

  2. Universal health care is not an extreme ideological position.

    • To real people with real jobs it is.
      Pay for yourself, slacker.

      Yep. Literally 90% of people support it (source: PEW research). That means even the overwhelming majority of repubs. It is common place in every other Western democracy and has been for decades. Hardly radical, except to the backward extremists.

  3. It’s official.
    Democrats don’t have a chance.

  4. With ten candidates on the stage, they ran out of fingers to point..I was waiting for them to take off their shoes !!

    Warren/Bernie 2020. Time for real change, not centrist/moderate/corporate/repub light “dems” like biden.

    That kind of status quo is part of the reason 45* was installed: many dems are sick of dems being almost as plutocrat as repubs and so didn’t vote for HRC (especially after the failed promise of obama, another corporate shill).

    Assault weapons will be needed by citizens because slowly the government is becoming the true enemy of the people are american soldiers willing to shoot fellow Americans ? I would love to see how many are that brainwashed that might be a very scary consensus

  7. No Biden. No. He can’t win. He is status quo.

    🎶 WHAT JOE’S GOT, LAUGH’N STOCK, HIS THOUGHTS AND SPEECH ARE SCATTERED ! HE CAN’T PULL HIMSELF TOGETHER , HE FORGOT OBAMA’S NAME !! OH YEAH !! WELL JOE YOU , YOU MAKE TRUMPS DREAMS , COME TRUE !! 🎶

  11. Anyone else see creepy uncle Joe’s teeth almost fall out?! 🤭😂🤣😂

  12. Chris Mathews belongs in the mainstream media spun room. Remember you denied supporting the Iraq war and got your panties in a bunch because Jorge Ramos said the media should have done a better job. Here’s the evidence soft ball with Chris Mathews https://youtu.be/MTdcPGJ5t7o
    https://youtu.be/c0U3l0OZCe8
    https://youtu.be/N83CVMvFqwg

  13. There will be no UNITY as long as Pelosi is the Speaker. What she pulled today was ludicrous. Does she think the people of the US are stupid and we can’t see CORRUPTION when its been shoved down our throats for the past 3 years.?? NOW, with her failure and lack of leadership in todays vote, its plain as day that the fix is in. Pelosi is just as corrupt as Trump . Its looking more and more like she wants the GOP to win in 2020. How else will the people get revenge against the DNC except by throwing a RED WAVE in 2020.

  14. STOP USING THAT AWFUL OUTTRO BY CHRIS HAYES!

  15. Castro’s memory must have failed him that he signed the Indivisible Unity/Civility Pledge. Maybe he’s getting old.
