  2. No one could land a hit on Sanders. And coming on TV the next day to make up a narrative of him getting pummeled is so dishonest.

      @Open Minded Sanders says he wants to make us like Sweden, yet his policies are straight out of the USSR and Venezuela. Sweden is a proud capitalist, considered the best country to have a business. They do not seize any part of companies to give to the workers. Sweden allows people to have private medical insurance, 2 million Swedes have that instead of the public insurance. Sweden also allows people to have supplemental insurance. Sanders would outlaw any insurance and force everyone on his version of healthcare. Look how well that has worked for Venezuela, which used to be the most prosperous country in South America.

    • Deborah Freedman Sanders during the last debate went out of his way to call out Putin and denounced individual authoritarians of multiple countries that trump has buddied up to. Also you can’t equate the US to Venezuela because the US economy isn’t exclusively dependent on oil companies, and again you jump to an authoritarian version of socialism which he went out of his way to denounce.

    • They’re feeling the Berne

    • Exactly. She hit against sanders, she lost the three fisrt states. This is the moment.

  4. Say something nice about Bernie Morning Joe crew.

      The best thing you can say about Sanders is, he’ll be dead soon.

      @Adaryll Kelly taxes can’t be *made* to be paid.

      Instead, look at the Magna Carta 1215, whereby one of the articles speaks of the confiscation of the possessions of those who have unlawfully/unconstitutionally deprived the nation of their liberties until such time as the principal sum is reimbursed to the people.

      If I’m not *entirely* accurate about the wording I’m sorry, but I think you get the gist.

      In other words, the people MUST act on their own collective accordance to requisition their fundamental rights

    • Bernie smells like Venezuela.

  5. The behavior of everybody but Bernie at this debate was outright embarrassing. Bernie 2020!

      @Max Smart He lied, and said prior to Castro, Cuba had a low literacy rate, when it was really the highest in South America.

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 3:17 PM | Reply

      @No Labels But Obama has never praised “the Revolution” as Sanders has. He was obfuscating as usual.

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 3:21 PM | Reply

      @David Dennison Trump is absolutely terrible. He is damaging the rule of law. The only thing that could be worse than that lying demagogue is a Marxist lying demagogue. The only thing that could possibly induce me to vote for that horrible man, is Sanders being nominated.

    • @Deborah Freedman Cuba is in North America. Get a clue.

    • David Dennison | February 26, 2020 at 4:34 PM | Reply

      @Deborah Freedman Well I guess you want the devil you know. Bernie is a good human being and unless the Senate turns blue and the House remains blue he won’t be able to get much done and he can be replaced in 2024.

  6. NBC hates Bernie, he couldn’t do anything good for nbc

      @Sky Racer they are if they vote anything but Republican!

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 4:21 PM | Reply

      He could do everyone a favor, and drop out.

    • Bernie is the best kind of communist, the kind that puts the DIE back in DIET. Private property is immoral, you can either surrender your assets to the state or go to gulag. Down with capitalism!

    • @A M “bernie centre” “very moderate” “bring people together” are you trolling? He wrote an article saying venezuelans are the only people living the american dream.

  7. Why is Chris Matthews still featured after his Nazi comments?

    • @Troy Stocker Leftists dont like it when you remind them nazis were the socialist party and nazi means socialist workers party and hitler started every speech he ever made with “Wir sind Sozialisten”

    • @Troy Stocker they get cranky if you tell them. dont tell them

    • @Deborah Freedman Thx for copy pasta, well done. Also, no need for the fear mongering, head over to Fox for that. The youtube forum isn’t the place to inform you on how subsidies work, or how medicare is already socialized medicine. But I can tell you, Bernie’s ideas aren’t radical according to any public opinion polling. He even went on Fox and Friends and had a whole room of republicans agreeing with him. But hey maybe your candidate will pull it out, no one can be as bad as what we have now.

    • Maybe because Bernie calls himself a Nazi?

    • My taxes in Belgium : 50% federal income tax + 8% local income tax + 22.5% social security income tax. I get to keep €19.50 for every €100 I make but pay a 21% sales tax on whatever I buy with the remaining €19.50 of my money. We have a holiday to celebrate the first day of the year working to pay bills instead of taxes, the holiday is in november. Thought I’d let you know the cost of all that free stuff. Bernie doesn’t tell you for obvious reasons.

  8. Guys just remember when they attack our movt, we *donate, volunteer and phone bank* some more.
    They’re just salty because they will finally start paying their fair share in taxes under a Sanders administration.

    • @Mike Surferson climate change doesn’t exist? 🤣🤦🏾‍♂️😂

      You really haven’t taken your meds have you?

    • Mike Surferson | February 26, 2020 at 3:56 PM | Reply

      @TCt83067695 Oh it exists a little….very minimally… but an emergency apocalyptic crisis to throw trillions of $$$ at? No way. I’d rather throw trillions at Doctors and Pharmaceutical companies to solve Coronavirus before it kills us all. THAT is a real emergency.

    • @Mike Surferson 🤔 So again is this based on YOUR analysis of the science or just another received opinion you got from some millionaire Fox News host who is paid by fossil fuel companies to lie?

    • ​@Deborah Freedman I suppose this really is a debate about whether we as Americans believe that the government should protect us from profiteering (health insurance companies exist solely to profit from the health care system and only profit by spending less than they take in so Americans are by definition paying more to get less) and whether or not we believe as Americans that the function of our government is in part to support the health of our citizens (vs seeing health care as an industry despite the fact that the choice most people have in that market is to go and pay the price whatever it is or not get care). Those that get health insurance through work you may not realize how much of a burden insurance plans are to employers as well (and I personally believe part of the reason so many Americans have an easy time finding part time jobs but not full time jobs with health benefits, and a huge barrier to the growth of small businesses). Here’s where we are – the insurance companies continue to raise their prices because they want to maintain and grow their profits despite the government forcing them to cover people with preexisting conditions. A public option adds to the existing administrative chaos without getting rid of those build in extra costs that are caused by the insurance company system. In the long term candidates like Pete seem to think enough people will buy in that it essentially becomes single payer as the government run plan forces out private competition. But as administrations change, politicians get their hands into what gets covered what doesn’t, who knows how that would turn out. Bernie’s single payer plan is a hard reset on what is underlying dysfunctional in the current system. Cut out the thousands of plans and profiteering, don’t try to be an insurance company, and allow Americans to get health care when they need it, with any doctor. Sorry for such a long response – I know its been framed by many as a “loss” of what you have – but if you are happy with your doctor, your hospital, you would just keep seeing them under Bernie’s plan. Just no copays, deductibles for care, preauthorizations to get care, dental if you don’t have that already, and max $200/year in costs for your prescriptions.

    • @J Wright you should check out his website cause you’re way off. If you only make 29k a year you’d be an absolute moron to vote Republican

  9. I feel like this black gentleman is hand puppet. My man barely moves.

  10. They have nothing. The same old BS. I think Bernie will win in South California despite the polls.
    PS. Polls may change in the remaining days.

    • MrSchweppes I agree with you! I also think 🤔 Bernie will win SC! We shall see! #Bernie2020

    • South California… hmm… another Russian bot….we keep running into you guys lately, huh? Not a lot of Americans drink Schweppes, so if you want to keep your cover you should pick something more relatable for a username LOL.

    I cant believe MSNBC is still letting this Mathews fellow talk such nonsense . He should have been wheeled off to the home a long time ago .

  12. The forced demonizing of Bernie is just ridiculous, Trump-like sewer level …..

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 2:33 PM | Reply

      @Hap Dossier Until Hillary called him on it in 2016, Sanders was just as anti “illegal alien” as Trump. He told Lou Dobbs they steal American jobs. He voted for the first plan to incarcerate them. He voted against giving the a path to citizenship in 2007. Interestingly enough, Klobuchar, Clinton, BIden and Obama voted for that bill. I’d say any one of those four Senators were a better friend to Latinos than Sanders.

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 2:34 PM | Reply

      @fodinski1 It is true. Look at his voting record.

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 2:35 PM | Reply

      @Sky Racer I doubt it. Biden got Clyburn’s endorsement. Older black voters remember that Biden has been their friend, not Sanders.

    • @fodinski1 You must be pretty young. If you vote that POS into office, you will live to regret it. We have the greatest president in our nation’s history. He is working for all of US, and is doing a great job. Did you notice the wonderful welcome Trump got in India? They recognize what a great leader he is. They are smarter than you libs by quite a large margin. You only have a short while to get your head screwed on straight.

    • @David Hale All of your comments on YouTube are anti-Democrat. You’re either a sad loser or a paid shill

  13. MSNBC is a joke.

    • G D yep and we watch fox news, its called keeping your enemies closer

    • This is MSNBC way of telling Bernie that they don’t want to have to start paying their fair share of Taxes… & leave their greedy Rich Oligarch friends alone & let them keep buying our so called “democracy!” I can’t wait til Bernie Tax the dogg💩 out their greedy a****!!! I am a Proud Black Man in America & Bernie Sanders Got my Vote…. Bernie2020!!!🇺🇸

    • @G D It’s Entertainment we just came here to pick on the poor saps

    • Bottom Line
      The Democrat CLOWN SHOW 🤪

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 3:04 PM | Reply

      @Adaryll Kelly Nah, this is MSNBC’s way of saying they don’t want the country ruined by a Marxist takeover, like in Venezuela. There is nothing so greedy as wanting to steal what others have worked for.

  14. Oh God, I can’t with this network bs anymore. Debate instapoll results: Q who had the most impressive night?
    A: BERNIE 45% BIDEN 43%
    But of course, they think voters are just wrong

  15. For some reason the crowd that can afford $2000 to attend a democratic debate didn’t really care about Bernie’s policies that help the poor.

    • Deborah Freedman | February 26, 2020 at 3:28 PM | Reply

      Many of those people attended for free. All the candidates were given tickets to distribute. Sanders Marxist policies won’t help the poor, they’ll just make everyone poor.

    • @Deborah Freedman
      Lies and more lies, you must be cnn.

  16. Chris Matthews could barely utter the last sentence on his teleprompter: “This is a race in which Bernie’s the leader.”

  17. The cheers for Bloomberg, the boos for Bernie…The audience was full of richy rich shills, it was clear to anyone watching. Not that MSNBC cares, they are part of the same club

    • @Nada Bobada
      Rich, like Bernie?

    • Bernie I’ll blame the rich promise free stuff and raise taxes .

    • @Dobs R
      Even though Hillary bribed him with three mansions to get out of the race, and now he’s one of the super rich people liberals despise.

    • Taxes here in Belgium : 50% federal income tax + 8% local income tax + 22.5% social security income tax. I get to keep €19.50 for every €100 I make but pay a 21% sales tax on whatever I buy with the remaining €19.50 of my money.

    Who was in the audience Chris? All of a sudden Bloomberg has groupies?

  19. They attack Bernie all the time, this time they threw the kitchen sink at him, attacked him like republicans would. Yet he came out ok, let’s see the polls, Super Tuesday. This was their last stance.

  20. “Bernie gets to to talk and nobody stops him.” Yeah Joe, it’s called “debating.”
