  1. The fact he can’t even look her in the eyes while arguing with her, says all we need to know.

    • @Louis Graham don’t play the female card! shes in the playground and the question is”who is the teacher” so far Peteis teaching. Go tell the principal you started it but got whipped so punish because it felt more like a whooping.

    • JeremyLintel How? How do you know him?

    • They aren’t across from each other. That’s ridiculous. Those are some ridiculous “feeling” you have. He was right.

    • @Qacc6 What garbage would that be Quack?

      Pete’s a coward who was not allowed to associate with other children growing up, was homeschooled by his incredibly liberal professor parents from Notre Dame. Everything in his life was grooming to vie a deep state puppet. He was terrified and very emotional at Tulsi. Trump would flay him alive.

    Gabbard said Buttigeg doesn’t have the balls to be president LOL

    • @Jokers WildYou actually want to talk about murderous dictators , then let’s just talk about the number one murderous nation , that being the government of the United States , because we have clowns for president that know nothing about foreign policy , Bush , Obama , Trump just three examples ; The military Industrial , Complex along with the CIA and the war profiteers drive our foreign policies and if you knew anything about our Construction which addresses the meddling into other countries affairs . Tulsi is the only candidate that has the courage to address this issue and unless your a Troll for the Establishment War Machine you would understand this . Thanks Tulsi for wanting to meet with adversaries as well as our allies and telling the facts and Leadership you show and for being Presidential .
      I guess it’s up to us to state the facts and Truth at fox and everywhere else we see the lies and smears this has to stop and stop now .

    • @Chris .tine Hey if you don’t like it , move on , ; Thanks again Tulsi , Americans are finally understanding exactly what our government is , A War Mongering Establishment Oligarchy .

    • Why LOL? He doesn’t have them.

    • @Salokin post debate polls from establishment propaganda outlets.

    • @Francesca cats lol, you think she twisted his words. The quote was tweeted out by tehir team and he said ‘absolutely’ to the question of would you let US troops go in and fight drug cartels, if Mexico wanted that. (doing just what Trump has done with Saudi, pimping out our military to fight Saudi battles). it was PETE who twisted HER words – she NEVER said he intended to ‘invade Mexico’ – thats very clear. She said ‘fight drug cartels.’

    • Will Stonehouse Salinas she didn’t murder him because he rose from the grave and is still back up on top of the polls!

    • QUEEN DAENERYS STORMBORN TARGARYEN … MSNBC fact checked and said the mayor was right in his response when he clarified and cleared up what he actually meant. He’s still high in the polls she’s still at 1% soo ehh not too much of a win over the mayor.

  4. his eyebrow when he heard her say the bit about mexico.

    • @Paula Hyland Despite that, you kept yourself calm and respectful, and you managed to diffuse my aggressive behavior. I can respect that. I think you already have the key to making the best possible decision for your vote. All I can say is: give progressive candidates a chance, study their proposals, and learn about their life records. The problem with Trump is that we sometimes get carried away by just wanting this insanity to end, and we lose the perspective that an election shouldn’t be about choosing the lesser evil, but the best candidate. I stand by my comments about Buttigieg – he represents a vanilla prospect of ‘change’. His campaign is filled with PAC-money (he uses a strategy that an Obama finance campaigner used of ‘bundling’, which is investing a huge sum of money through a big list of individuals connected to specific groups/organizations, so it gives the idea of his campaign being funded ‘by the people’. And his platform is pretty much party-oriented, not people-oriented (ending gerrymandering, for instance, is really nice, but in the end, it’s just to empower the corporate branch of the DNC). So really take a look at the three candidates I mentioned. Sanders, Warren and Gabbard are not perfect, but they offer better prospects for our society as a whole. Gabbard’s foreign policy is a refreshing take for this country, because she has the military and diplomatic experience, and would change our image of an imperialistic country. Warren is still a pro-capitalist candidate, but she understands the need to reform the system, and when it comes to consumer’s rights, she’s second to none. (I still have my reservations about her campaign finances; she transferred a huge sum of PAC money from her Senate run before she took the pledge of no Big Money; and she voted for all of Trump’s military budget increases, giving him even more than he requested. Also, she backtracked on Medicare for All, and her finance plan for it is based on Regressive Taxation, which would inflict a higher cost for the middle-class in the long run, but it’s still a valid approach). And Sanders is a grumpy, Independent candidate, but his record is spotless and he has been championing all the policies that became the gold standard of the Democratic Party for decades. He’s the father of the healthcare debate, and his passion for it is infecting. I have my doubts about how much he can achieve since we still have a Republican majority in the Senate until 2022, but his campaign is simply the most fantastic grassroots movement in the history of the US, so maybe this can be a game-changer to get things done. So this is my suggestion, I think you need to give some time to dig deeper into the candidates because it’s not just about taking down Trump, but it’s about actually moving forward from the Obama years. And a quick note: being really pragmatic here, the fact that Buttigieg’s campaign is polling at nearly 0% with black voters is a serious problem. Even if you’re definitely convinced that he represents your views better than the others, you need to evaluate the fact that he might not be able to bring the black/latino vote out to win this – as much criticism as I have about him, the truth here is that prejudice about his sexuality is embedded into black communities, and that could cost us the election.

    • ​@Paula Hyland she actually has been at every debate except for September. More so, she has been the most searched candidate following each debate she attended. The trouble is, the moderators give little to no time to the lower tier candidates, particularly Yang and Tulsi. It is widely believed that this silencing is intentional and strategic to suppress the candidates who are not associated with the “establishment”. This has been a common occurrence since the first debate in June, sparking frequent trending hashtags such as #LetYangSpeak and #LetTulsiSpeak. Both of these candidates, contrary to popular belief have a VERY strong fanbase which at this point is not being well represented by their poll numbers.

      I certainly agree with you that Tulsi can come off as combative (I mean she is a combat veteran after-all). I can see why it would be a turn off to people who are not a current supporter, especially when it is THEIR candidate who she is “attacking”. Of course you have the natural right to be defensive about that, just like we get defensive about Tulsi. So I think it’s important not to take things at face value and look at the substance of the argument. When Tulsi goes after a candidate or an establishment, she is speaking truth and substance, without the baseless accusations. The fact checkers can verify this.

      The reason why we say “She ended [Pete’s] campaign” is because that is what happened after she exposed Kamala’s record, her numbers rapidly declined immediately after that debate night. I do not want to attack you for your support of Buttigieg, up until the last debate I truly believed he was a serious candidate. In many ways, the candidates owe Tulsi a deal of gratitude for being willing to be put her name on the line to be combative and expose other candidates for their flaws. That is largely the purpose of these debates. We need to know how these people are likely to hurt us, just as much as how they are proposing to help us.

      Tulsi is speaking truth about corruption in the Democratic Party, Tech Giants like Google manipulating Ads and Search Results, and our need to stop being the World’s Police. Using our resources here at home for Health Care, College Tuition, and Universal Basic Income—she’s been trending, momentum is picking up. We have an opportunity to restore the democratic party back to the integrity of JFK.

      It was Tulsi who resigned her position as Vice Chair of the DNC to speak out against corruption in the Democratic Party and endorse Bernie Sanders in 2016. Hillary is the reason we have Trump.

      Truth, Unity, Love, Service, Integrity
      . That’s what we stand for.

    • @Jokers Wild, The reality is Buttigieg is the one who twisted what Gabbard said. She never said anything about an INVASION, yet the brain-dead, ignorant minions applauded.

      @purefatdude2 PETE-BOTS!!!

    • @mustanger405 Little Petey is an effeminate homosexual. He is not capable of handling a crisis. I thought he looked like he was about to cry.

    • Are you Kidding me? | November 21, 2019 at 10:22 PM | Reply

      @Chris .tine “yeah, Tulsi! We get it, troops are dying needlessly and America keeps murdering innocent civilians around the world and occupying nations like it’s an imperial power, and like thats kind of important, but like, can you stop talking about it and started spewing mindless platitudes about stuff being “PaRr FoR tHe CoUrSe iN WaShInGtOn” instead of talking about anything important, because I’m tired of hearing about it”
      that’s what you sound like.

    • mustanger405 wow how dare you disrespect a person in the service like that. She served to protect your freedom and that’s how you treat her? She’s calling out on Pete’s bs he did state he would send troops to Mexico he even got fake endorsements. Please if you have actual proof of this then shownjf but stop saying silly little accusations

  6. moderators should be sacked,useless

  7. The look on Pete’s face! Lol

  8. This was the worst moderated debate.

    • @MrJermson yes they are. They are the network with Collusion, orange man bad and impeachment. Like people would want to be updated once. Its like someone nagging you continously on something and even though you think its important, you would do against it just cuz they were annoying.

    • From what I keep hearing, I’m glad this is the one that I missed.

    • robert b. howse | November 22, 2019 at 1:21 AM | Reply

      Tulsi is as stunned as US vet cuntery can get and still form words. America deserves her.😨Make America Cunty Again.😂😃


    • It was indeed terrible. True to form MSNBC.

  9. 2:40 “Like Trump who met with Kim”

    Did Pete just praise Trump or is he trying to undermine Tulsi?

    • I think it’s pretty clear that he was giving a contrary example in the wisdom of meeting evil foreign leaders to buttress his point about the folly of her meeting the butcher Assad.

    • @LORD EXPLOSION MURDER!! DAMMIT! A key element to diplomacy is negotiating, and you seem to not understand the basic negotiating principle that you do not negotiate without leverage – esp. with murderous dictators. US leverage was lost as soon as the press snapped pictures of Trump and Kim together as equals, and as soon as Gabbard met with Assad. You seem to naively think that murderous dictators will suddenly become friendly by having conversations. It must be nice to live in your unicorn and rainbow world. I ask you again the question that you have not answered and are avoiding… Assad and Kim got what they wanted. How were US interests advanced during the Assad/Kim meetings? I will answer for you… the US got absolutely nothing because they had no leverage. And future meetings will have the same outcome without leverage.

    • Pete just talks to hear his self because no one else is listening to him .

    • @sleepyfish obviously you don’t know US history….it was, and was meant to be a singer! Good job Pete!

    • obviously undermine

    • @Salokin why do you bother typing about it then?

    • @Gengar H. Christ that’s what partisan hacks like you would say. Meeting Kim was one of the best things Trump did.

      @mustanger405 Hillary was right…Tulsi Gabbard is a russian plant sent to divide the democrat party and help Trump!

    • Undriel Grenger | November 23, 2019 at 10:26 PM | Reply

      @TheHound NO, it wasn’t. Kim came out laughing at Trump and Trump came out of that meeting expressing his wish to have Americans bow and scrape to him like the Koreans do for Kim

  11. Its no fun…when the rabbit has the gun…

  12. I love how Pete accused Tulsi of twisting his words when he literally twisted her question. Now that is low even for a politican

    • TSammy She twists people’s words and records for a living it seems. Hillary has it right.

    • @Qacc6 who’s words, show me.

    • Jessalyn Bartell | November 23, 2019 at 6:51 PM | Reply

      @Qacc6 imagine believing Hillary has it right

    • @Qacc6 let’s see example of Tulsi twisting someone’s words please. Here, she used the words ‘fight drug cartels’ and thats the exact words he was questioned about in an interview. HE then twisted HER words to mean ‘invade Mexico. That is NOT what she said.
      What Pete said he was absolutely willing to do is send troops to Mexico to fight drug cartels if Mexico wanted that. here is the transcript and the actual interview from 10minute 11 seconds into this

  13. Pete believes he can bend reality.. Tulsi just stated facts. She is anti-war, he has no real idea what he is.

  14. Gabbard was not implying that Pete would invade Mexico, she was implying that it is irresponsible to send american troops to fight mexico’s battles, that american troops should be used to serve american interests.

  16. buttigieg—-Is basically saying “I will send troops wherever my corporate masters want” (endless war).   When did the Democrats become the party of War?   All the wasted blood and courage wasted for what?  Imagine what the 6 Trillion dollars wasted on war could have done for Our country.

      It’s BEWILDERING that liberalism, the party of peace and the poor, is now clamoring for perpetual war to benefit Israel and the oligarchy, while wanting to waste young men’s lives to benefit rich old men.

  18. The more you watch it the more you realize she won.
