    Isn’t Joy Reid a homophobe that tried to sell us on Bloomberg?

    • white lightning | February 20, 2020 at 3:21 AM | Reply

      @C.C. Ekeke The same Sanders who refuse to criticise a dictator like Maduro for starving his own people? yea try again moron

    • Dear uninformed if you know how to use Google, put in Joy Reid homophobe liar and you’ll see. She is such a sad minstrel

    • Hooked on Chronics | February 20, 2020 at 5:24 AM | Reply

      @Kreatures100 oh, we’re in agreement then, I thought u were calling me liar for saying she was a homophobe.

    • @white lightning I’m sure the US sanctions aren’t helping Venezuela either. And your arguments lose weight if you have to resort to insults.

  2. Underestimate the rage of the working people? Yeah you think?

  3. Joy Reid is one of the worst news anchor. Hire Nina Turner and replace Joy.

    • jerome Jackson bernie bro? Oh yes your moderate talking points, first I support Warren, Bernie so I’m not a Bernie pro. Your people had your time in the sun, how can old people fix problems that don’t pertain to their generation. Ya fought for your generation and it’s time to pass the fight to the next, that’s how progression works. If the generation before yours didn’t pass it own to you, how would ya have gotten your rights? The problem is ya want to fight all battles, yes ya did ya part and it’s time to let the news kids do their part.

    • @Sovereign Butterfly Get? No…you take.

      Trump seized power.

      Find some yourself.

    • @Papito Warren? I’m from Boston Massachusetts.

      That woman is cancer.

    • @Papito57 is not old its’ called life experience. Stick with Bernie, and if he is the nominee when he loses in November , then come back and talk to me.

    • jerome Jackson of course, you living longer means you know everything. If ya had all this experience we wouldn’t be with Trump because ya kept saying Hilary would win. Sometimes you need new solutions to fix old problems.

      But sure oh wise one, you been alive longer so you know what’s best for millennials and our circumstances.

  4. Simple..fall in line behind the leader in polls..unity guys!

    I love that she lumps bernie with Bloomberg, because having a million in fortune is totally the same as have multi billions in wealth 🙄

    • @Kristi Marie It is true that Bernie entered the top 1% EARNERS for 1 year (2016), by making 1 million from his book sale, up from his usual earnings of below 200 thousand (the congressional salary is 174,000, which in itself brings you into the top 10%). It is precisely due to such fluctuations of income that most people use net worth when talking about who constitutes the 1%. The minimum net worth for being part of the 1% is a bit over 10 million dollars (see or Sanders net worth is around 2-2.5 million.

    • Joseph Chamberlain | February 20, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Reply

      She said or *even a Bernie Sanders. It wasnt an equation of the two. It was a distinction between the two. The fact of the matter is most young people have a hard time imagining having as much wealth as *even Bernie Sanders, let alone a billionaire like Mike Bloomberg. And that’s true. The younger generation does have a hard time imagining that.

    • @Kristi Marie
      You wrote you don’t support Sanders because you don’t like some of his supporters?! That doesn’t add up in my mind. And I can guarantee that you wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) like some of the supporters of any other candidate. I prefer to focus on my candidate, not her/his supporters. When that is the focus, comparing Bernie to Trump is disappointing, disturbing, disingenuous and dishonest. Perhaps even delusional.

    • @Joseph Chamberlain She literally said they were both part of the 1%, which was what I responded to. To your point; yes, even Bernies wealth is far more than what anyone reasonably can expect to make, but its hardly the type of wealth that scews political systems or buys elections. That is type of wealth is what young people are reacting so strongly against, because it hinders the democratic system to react to their needs.

    • @Kristi Marie Here’s why you are wrong. The appropriate measure of someone’s status is their net worth. Bernie’s net worth is between 1 and 2.5 Million. Percentage in net worth breakdowns as follow

      Net Worth
      10% $1,182,390.36
      2%. $5,816,220.17
      1%. $10,374,030.10
      0.10%. $43,090,281.00

      Bernie is not in the one percent. This is just an object fact.

      Now, about him being the poorest politician. Heyo Han, was speaking about Bernie being the poorest politicain in congress. Which was true up until the 2018 midterms.

      This has been my TED Talk.

  6. Fun Fact: Franklin D. Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson were both “democratic socialists.”
    America did pretty well with them.

    • They had to pass term limits for the President because FDR kept getting elected over and over

    • @Ro G you know nothing of history. The new deal did not end the depression, the federal reserve protects trusts not the people , and the UN is a corrupt toothless bureaucratic wasteland. Dont be stupid all your life

    • Robert Bemister What history are you learning? Did the confederacy also win according to your history?? 🤔🤣🤣

    Joy Reid cannot hide her disdain for Bernie Sanders and its becoming a bit comical. More Independent voters are behind Bernie Sanders now. More active military support Bernie Sanders than the rest combined. He has always been in the actual lead but now has a double digit lead over the next in line. The list goes on and on why he’s the best suited for the nomination. Why does a regular schmuck like me tell more truths and give more facts than MSNBC pundits? I’m glad you asked… Because Bernie Sanders is bad for rich and corrupt businesses. You’re welcome!

    Bernie Sanders 2020

    • Bernie is part of the 1%. It’s like when Trump supporters believed he was going to help the working class and not himself.

    • @Kristi Marie Bernie wasn’t part of the 1% when he was running in 2016, before he wrote a book. Just watch!

    • Kristi Marie this again.. 🙄 here’s how you deal with it FACT: Bernie is LESS wealthy than the average person his age with a college education. 😱

      He is among the poorest person in the senate and is by far the poorest member that’s been in government half as long as he has.

    • @Kristi Marie his wealth is not an issue. He was talking about health insurance as a bleeding human right when everyone else’s jaw was dropping at the hint and Hillary Clinton called it the reason why she failed, ‘Bernie promised everyone a pony’! @madam Clinton health insurance isn’t a luxury item. These unsympathetic cold politicians make me sick. ‘Let them eat cake’, or the French budget minister talking to the yellow vest movement regretted that everything is so expensive and a dinner in a restaurant 200€ costs! If you like caviar, you like caviar what canone do! 🙃

      Yes, I listen to her show every weekend and she talks about him often.

    • Joy Reid is anti-Sanders. Has been since 2016 when she would baselessly attack him. She frequently has on guests to attack Sanders. She’s disgusting.

    • Joseph Chamberlain | February 20, 2020 at 4:00 PM | Reply

      @Cop Drama Well, that’s your right to think that. I’d wager a guess I listen to her program a little more than you do and overall I would disagree with your assessment. Does she criticize Sanders? Yes absolutely. That being said, there isn’t a politician I haven’t heard her criticize for one thing or another. I feel like she brings a valuable opinion. I don’t take it as gospel or anything, but she’s really good at checking blind spots I tend to get when I get I’m over enthusiastic about one thing or another.

    Joy is a sell out. Sad times

  10. BS. It’s a divide between elites/priveledged vs working people upon whose backs this country was built.

    • @white lightning Sanders proposals include returning money back to America and stopping tax loopholes. Congress writes tax laws though, so who knows if he’ll get to sign anything as president.

    • It’s harder to get unemployment checks which is why “unemployment is so low”. Trump is a con man, always has been always will be.

  12. I thought it was vote blue no matter who. I guess for some it’s vote blue no matter who… Eh… Except Bernie. Shame.

    • @Jalite Why do U all harass & intimidate fellow Democrats, who refuse to share your views? WE don’t have too!!!

    • @jerome Jackson I’m sure if you asked anyone else here, they would highlight you as the only disruptive element here. My original post was/is about the commonly quote of “vote blue no matter vote.” Now seems to be changing to ” except Bernie.

      Show me the attack. Show me the misinformation. You popped up, ignoring my intentions bc you were most likely hurt over what you interpreted as my words, instead of what I actually wrote

    • @jerome Jackson oh and he doesn’t claim to be a Democrat. He claims to be a democratic socialist that side with the Democrats.

      It’s funny…you have no issues counting Bernie’s seat as a plus + for Democrats would you prefer if he didn’t? If anything Bernie uses them and them use him.

  13. Remember when joy claimed time travelingRussian hackers made her say horrific homophobic things on her blog??

  14. Ughhh. Msnbc is the worst! How is Warren the best shot when Bernie is doing better in the polls?? 🙄🙄

    • Joseph Chamberlain | February 20, 2020 at 1:41 PM | Reply

      Bernie holds a lead with 30% (+ or – 4.7%) which still leaves a remaining 70% of voters that will gradually be consolidated. Bernie has been campaigning for president arguably since 2016 and folks are fairly familiar with him as he’s been so consistent with his vision over his political career. They’ve had more of a chance to get to know him than many of the other candidates and still aren’t onboard. Knowing that, it’s hardly unreasonable to speculate how that majority of votes might coalesce as the primary goes forward. Bernie has a good lead, but is still missing enough support with POC and needs to fix that if he’s going to make it. I feel like if he can make significant gains there he’ll lock things up, but it certainly looks like POC are leaning towards pragmatism at least at the moment. If that holds Warren’s a pretty solid bet for being able to sew up the divide.

    • Joseph Chamberlain FACT: according to a recent poll Bernie now LEADS with “black support” and he’s been far ahead with Latino support for a while now. Bernie has the vast majority of the youth vote. He (or candidates like him) are the party’s future!

      So remember Bernie has the majority of the minority vote and has the most support among all racial demographics under 35. (A Interesting fact is among all young demographics he scores lowest among white men destroying the Bernie Bro myth)

    • @Joseph Chamberlain Bernie Has the Highest support with non-white voters.

      A poll was Just released where Bernie Beats every Dem Candidate in a head to head primary.

      and Bernie is the Top second choice candidate for Warren and Biden. If either of them drop out It’s over,

      Where are you guys getting your info? Please stop making political commentary with no bases for your claims. Literally the opposite of every claim you made is True.

    • Joseph Chamberlain | February 20, 2020 at 3:40 PM | Reply

      @Jalite Then it seems like things might be swinging, however the article you posted also mentioned a couple other polls with somewhat conflicting data. If he can lock that in Sanders will probably make a run. That still doesn’t account for the other 70% +/- 4.7% in a more recent poll (which defines his current double digit lead) that will need to come together around Sanders for him to take it to the bank. Only two states are in, those states are not very representative of the diversity in the party and we have a whirlwind left to go 🙂 I’ll happily vote for Bernie if he can edge out my preferred candidate. Hopefully you can do the same.

    • @Joseph Chamberlain ​ That’s where that morning consult poll comes in. If you look at the second choices for Liz Warren and Joe Biden, Bernie is the likely second choice for those voters. (How voters are Jumping from Joe to Bernie is beyond me), but if votes match the polls, If either of these two candidates drop out more than a third of their support goes to Bernie.

  15. Bernie must have done well, YouTube finally playing his ads lol

    Cnn: young people want sanders

    CNN: old people want anybody just get trump out.

    Also CNN: who can unite the division between the, Bernie wing and the anybody wing.

    Me thinking I’m crazy: how is Bernie not what the youth want and need and also he is anybody that’s a win win for the party tf 😡.

  17. hey joy remember that time you tried to smear bernie with a psuedoscientist who said a 14 year old got STDs from vaccines and furthered the obama birther narrative?

  18. Dear Ms. Reid,
    Don’t know who you’re talking to, but you really need to expand your sampling model. The generational divide was manufactured by the media–not reality–to support their narrative, not ours.
