  1. Well said Pete! Republicans will do nothing to weaken Trump as long as they see him as the key to getting their agenda into law.

  2. CNN please provide us the full debate instead of these small clips, for the benefit of public good. Thank you!

      ?? What a joke… another case of a politician (Bernie) telling the people what they want to hear and having no intent on doing what he promised. Common sense would tell you, that there is no such thing as just ‘cancelling’ student debt all across the country. Banks and colleges are a business like any other and it costs big money for them to operate and they need to be paid for their services like every other business in America. Those colleges need money from somewhere to pay their bills and operate (from the building cleaning staff, the office staff, security staff, the heating bills, the electric bills, plowing the parking lots and campus roads in winter to cutting the grass, for example) and of course college students need money to pay for the professors time when teaching them, students have to pay for their food and monthly apartment rent, their clothes and school supplies, transportation, etc., etc., etc. The idea that out of nowhere, all of those American students college expenses would be covered for ‘free’ is ridiculous and misleading. If the banks are not loaning the students the money needed to pay all of their college expenses, then where is the money coming from? Yes folks, the American taxpayer will be paying all of those expenses, (and considering that America is literally ‘bankrupt’ in 2019 with the American government over 22 TRILLION dollars in debt and paying over 500 BILLION in debt interest every year, it is not an option to pay for students to go to college. Especially these days when the economy is in the middle of a depression, as tens of millions of Americans are jobless, because jobs are rapidly dissappearing to China and India, where hundreds of millions of slaves work in factories for a dollar a day. More American jobs are lost to massive robotic assembly lines and the latest cost saving technology. When there are tens of millions of people jobless they are not paying taxes and so there is less money for the American government to spend on maintaining desperately needed services and infrastructure, especially with government funded social cutbacks being the new norm. There is no money left for hardworking American taxpayers to pay the expenses for millions of American students to go to college, year after year. I think the honest truth and the reality of the situation is, that students will still have to borrow the money needed from the banks, to go to college, and the government can put a cap on the interest charged by the banks, based on the students graduating or not. If some students want to borrow tens of thousands of dollars, to go to college and party their brains out and use the borrowed money to buy a massive flat screen tv, go on tropical vacations on spring break, party with friends everynight and then not show up to classes, then, when they do not get a college degree, they should pay the full amount of the loan with full interest to the bank. For those students that actually study and graduate with passing grades, then they should not pay any interest just the initial loan amount. Then for those serious students that borrowed money from the banks, that graduated with honours and were top of their class, then the entire loan and interest debt should be wiped out and paid for by the American taxpayers as an investment in Americas future and their best and brightest. That is the only reason that anyone deserves to have a free ride at the expense of the American taxpayers. We all know America is the land of the free… but make no mistake, living in America is not free, not any more folks. (Just sayin’ is all.)

    • Sorry, but Mayor Pete is a man who has oral and anal sex with another man. He may be smart, but he’s also gross and the ULTIMATE sinner in the eyes of God. America doesn’t need, nor want, a man who swallows baby gravy in the White House. America also doesn’t need, nor want, a first Husband in the White House. The United States would lose ALL respectability from the rest of the world should a gay man be elected president.

    CNN, post the entire debate.

  4. I think the military industrial complex might have something to say about that…
    It seems the last 2 President said they were going to bring them home…
    Something to think about

    • @Pyrate Bastard 👏👏👏👏

    • @Robin Who is the military defending us from?

    • @Pyrate Bastard I served my country by raising a fine family. How many homos bother to raise a family, since in interferes with their nihilistic lifestyle.

    • EVERY new President gets into the Oval office with all these big foreign policy plans. It doesn’t take very long for them to realize that the President is not actually in charge of foreign policy. You can be a willing puppet or a reluctant one but you WILL be a puppet. Neo-cons and Zionists run our foreign policy, always have.

    Nuclear war is unthinkable and un-winnable. To strike first seals the fate of any nation, and by close extension, the world. Peace makers and peace keepers are the only true leaders today. Do not be misled by those who claim strength & security by what is first sown, for the harvest shall be black.
    Choose your leaders wisely, lest you need not ever choose another.

    • Aesthetic Medic | July 31, 2019 at 12:00 AM | Reply

      it’s called mutually assured destruction (MAD) which is exactly why we need nukes

    • @Aesthetic Medic The OP and Warren didn’t say we didn’t need nukes, they said we shouldn’t strike first. Launching nukes doesn’t keep the other side from launching theirs, as everyone has on base staff that are supposed to be ready to go at any time. Telling people we’ll shoot first will only increase tension. In such a case, some kind of miscommunication could start a nuclear war: https://www.history.com/news/5-cold-war-close-calls

    • To strike first seals the fate of any nation? Not true, as such a strike can be done without knowing who did it. So, it’s far worse than you think.
      True leaders are wise and speak the truth, yet you have not shown to value such in your comment.
      Perhaps you should rethink your dogma.

    • @OinkAs far as I can tell, your refutation doesn’t actually change anything. If we get hit with a nuclear weapon and don’t know who did it, who should we have nuked first? Or are you saying that we should do the stealthy first strike?

  6. All the best Pete.

    What’s with this “not posting the entire debate” nonsense. Completely unethical. Post the damn debate.

      ​@iam1ina1000000 Yes. Sanders is doing exactly what Trump did. Promising the moon. Only somebody who knows he is not going to get elected and have to deliver on his promises would be this reckless. I have always thought that as a gadfly that he was a net positive. This time around, though, I am not so sure. I still don’t think he’s a serious contender, But he might, like Trump, accidentally get elected.

  9. Pete direct convo in the camera talking to Congress was sweet!!!!

    • We have to reduce the male population of the country by at least 40-45% !!! The only problem we have is TOXIC MASCUILINITY !!! This is why we got Trump as our president ! We have to waste many useless males to make our country great again !!!

  10. I really like Pete Buttigieg. All that needs to be said

    Cannot remember the last time I heard a politician speak as well as Mayor Pete. I think he has a bright future but don’t know if that includes being President in 2020. There are a lot of good people up there to choose from.

    • Andrew Giraldi | July 31, 2019 at 10:04 AM | Reply

      “A lot”? There were only three out of the ten people on stage last night that was worth voting for, and no one not named “Bernie”, “Elizabeth”, or “Pete”.

      You must not be very bright yourself. His only future is ex Mayor of South Bend

    • Yes, he speaks well, but compared to trump, that’s a low bar. We’ve forgotten a President should sound intelligent! Wall St. loves Pete, therefore I can’t really trust him. Warren and Bernie are totally fighting for all the people, not the corporate money

      Warren and Sanders and that is about it. Although I would love to see Kamala rip Trump a new one.

    Please upload the full debate. This should be made available to as much of the public as possible.

    • The debate is live on CNN.com, they open the live debate to everyone regardless whether you have a tv subscription or not. It’s a deal Cnn and dnc made.

      @gill tod yeah, I understand that. I went there first but their site just isn’t as user friendly or have the audience reach that youtube offers.

      I started it a little after the debate started. But when I tried to start from an earlier time the stream locked up on me. So I had to refresh it a couple of times. Then later on I paused it to go do something. And when I came back and pressed play it locked up on me again. Commenting on different places it turns out that other people have issues too.

      it’s just not a good streaming site.

    • CNN knows the debate would get 12 views.

  13. Pete was amazing tonight! I can’t wait until he is President. America is so lucky. #Pete2020

      @Bob Eckert That he’s a Bernie. A liar.

    • @Bob Eckert What did Trump lie about? You must be a creepazoid that supports the LGBTQ community.

    • Go far far far away

    • kalbs89 Warren is the crazy white lady in my apartment building.

    • Please no anymore useless males … Warren or Kamala Harris for me. We need to reduce the male population of our country by at least 40-45 !!! According to science our society works better without males . The only problem we have is toxic mascuilinity !!! To make our country great again we need to keep only gay males and waste the others.👩‍⚕️🏳️‍🌈👩‍👩‍👧‍👦

  16. Damn he is just a great articulate man. Mayor peter will make America great again.

    • @jack b Nah. He will leave that for in bed. Do you really think that’s all gay guys think or do?

    • @Syclone0044 No…I oppose the normalization of sodomy in American life. Little Petey is a public figure, f*** off on your insinuation my comments are sexual harassment.

    • @suppacoo Little Petey is a homosexual. Stop using the adjective gay to name the homosexual. It is a manipulative and deceptive labeling, considering male homosexuals are walking petri dishes.

    Right on, Bernie and Pete and Elizabeth!! What a good team we have as Democrats, now we need to win the Presidency and the Senate.

  18. Thank you, Mayor Pete! Best comment in the debate as he looked straight into the camera and spoke to the Republican cowards!!!

  19. Not gonna lie, I got a chill when Pete said that direct to camera. So true what he said, and absolutely necessary.

    Buttigeig is obviously the most intelligent person in the room. The current president is the stupidest person in almost any room he goes into. Buttigeig speaks 7 languages, trump can’t even speak 1 language coherently
