The Democratic Primary Isn't Over - Yet. | The Last Word | MSNBC 1

 

David Plouffe tells Lawrence O'Donnell that the race between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will be settled after next Tuesday's primaries – and then the party has to work on unifying. "We've got to work at it, we've got to listen to the Sanders supporters… we listen to those organizers on the ground, cause they've shown the ability to attract youth support, now we need to grow the turnout as well." Aired on 3/11/2020.

      @doug robertson Didn’t the Babyboomers and Gen-X wage war with Iraq twice and start a war in afghanistan that ended up as the longest war in U.S. History, and overthrow Libya turning it into a slave trading state. Insult to injury, the Babyboomers and Gen-X traind the Taliban and Binladen in the 1980s to fight the Russians, only to end up attacking The United States twenty years later on Sept 11. Hmmmm dam they sound stupid.

      Its hard to sweep a vote on hacked voting machines.

  2. the media spat all over sanders and his campaign, propping up a dozen others while demonizing him, and now they’re asking for their help? please. get hillary to continue advising you. the gall of it is amazing.

    • Berniacs stayed home in 2016, did not vote *AT ALL* mad at Clinton…
      they put this albatross called trump around our necks

      Berniacs, no better than trumpanzies

      I’m just surprised the liberals and DNC didn’t put a “undocumented” transgender of color that identifys as a thing for their perfect POTUS.

    • @wel1968 Go away, troll.

    • @wel1968 meh Bernie supporters are 40% of tthe Dem electorate. Ignore them at your peril. lol

    • @Eco Geek I rather see trump anyways
      let us see, just how bad this can get
      if Sanders is on that ballot, if they try to slip a woman in as VP, I will vote for the trump

      you are all cowards

    what is Msnbc talking about I seen Biden at a rally to day. Biden had a full on dementia episode… Like their is no way Biden is fit after what every one seen at the rally. I like Joe he’s a good Guy but he is not fit pretty soon he wont be able to remember where he is half the time. At least Bernie has a plan we can count on… Besides all the difference between them, Bernie not losing his mind. Yo Msnbc play the rally were Biden has a full on Dementia episode like for real its obvious. PS this happen to day… The sad part is even FOX News is Playing the clip that’s how bad it is….!

  4. The only race Biden is running is to the dementia ward.

  5. Bernie should stay in the race until the convention regardless of his performance. I’d be surprised if Biden could hold up until then. If Bernie withdraws prematurely and Biden becomes incapacitated, the DNC may use the argument that since there is no in-place challenger, they are required to select another candidate. We know it will not be Sanders.

    • @Briza Ac I am not a Russian. Why should I give my vote to the DNC when they rig their primaries?

    • @JR Going – You’re either a Ruskie troll or one of tRump’s Ruskie sympathizers. You can’t vote because you’re not a US citizen.

    • @Briza Ac Yeah. I am still not a Russian or a bot. I am a registered voter and have voted Democrat for the past 20+ years. I will not vote for the lesser of two evils anymore. I will only vote for true progressives or third party from now on. I no longer see any difference in the republicans and the establishment democrats.

    • @JR Going – You part of Putin’s trolling hub in Ghana?

    • @Briza Ac You are a paid shill…. How much do you get paid a post? is it still $.05 a post? Do you know who is paying you or do you work out of one of the clearinghouses? Is it the DNC or one of their corporate PACs? I am always amazed at how someone will sell their soul for a nickel.

  6. There will be no unifying a heavy amount of Bernie voters. We vote on conviction, not fear, and we won’t be bullied into falling in line like sheep.

    • Anyone that votes for a communist doesnt deserve to live in America.You can vote your way into communism but your grandchildren will have to shoot their way out.

    • Thank you for supporting your president Donald Trump! We hope to continue seeing your support In the coming days/years!😂👋

      A vote for Crazy Bernie is a vote for Communism

    • Never voting for JOE lookout Trump 4 more

    • @Michael Ramon Not when you think neoliberal establishment Dems are every bit of the concern as Trump. At least with Trump, in 2024 we can push for fair and progressive values. The DNC manipulating and forcing dementia as our voice is asinine. The billionaire donors to Biden’s campaign WILL be his cabinet. JP Morgan, Buttigieg, the old Obama corporatists, Bloomberg….oil companies, banks, wall st., big pharma…that is a much bigger issue moving forward than Trump in my view. That will set the progressive movement back 20 years.

    What I’m hearing is we still have HALF of the States to vote for a Universal Healthcare System in order to SAVE 68,000 lives a year and SAVE $450 BILLION annually!!! According to the World Health Organization, the USA statistically ranked 37th in Quality of Care and 191st in cost among nations… DURING the OBAMA/BIDEN Administration!!! MAKE AMERICA 1ST!!!

    We need to play the Mental Decline videos which are circulating of Trump and Biden side by side. BOTH need Mental Health help!!!! Don’t elect people who have the signs of DEMENTIA as President!!! This is SCARY!!!

    • NeutronStarPilot | March 12, 2020 at 8:45 AM | Reply

      I’m just gobsmacked that anyone believes Joe Biden is more electable than Bernie Sanders, it’s just not Factually accurate.

      Trump is definitely less mentally acute than he used to be from older clips and interviews, but he’s still there, he is still witty and capable of finishing a sentence
      (Unless he’s off his non prescription drugs)

      Biden’s mental decline makes my jaw hit the floor,
      Like Joe rogan said after Biden’s, “You know the thing”

      Joe Rogan:
      “No! Stop this man cannot be president”!

    The DNC wanted Hillary last time and stole all the Bernie contributions and gave it to the Hillary campaign. The DNC does not want Bernie and panicked
    when he pulled way ahead. This week Joe is way ahead all of a sudden even though Bernie has thousands of supporters show up at his rallies unlike Joe who
    can’t fill a Denny’s. Looks like the DNC is rigging the elections again. Bernie bros keep your eyes open, you are getting screwed by the DNC and Media again.

  12. Lawrence, you let Biden tell lie after lie in your latest interview with him one has to wonder if you just didn’t prepare or you are part of the problem.

      @Samuel Vimes Joe Biden won the 1987 Slam dunk contest, swam the paclantic ocean,
      The emancipation proclamation was actually his idea he Told to Lincoln,
      And he invented the color Yellow.

      What did Bernie do, just be consistent for 40 years and vote right on the issues at the time even if they weren’t popular back then!
      Oh wow 2 things!

    • @NeutronStarPilot A lot of people are saying that… ; )

    Biden wouldn’t even know if the DNC elected him for President.

  14. I’m, I guess what you would call an “independent”, and I don’t see much of a difference between Trump and Biden. Bernie is who I want short and simple. I worked my butt off to get Bernie elected and now it looks like I can fall back into political apathy. All the way to the day that the delegates are counted I’ll work hard, but if Bernie is not selected there is nothing for me in the DNC. From where I’m standing Biden doesn’t offer anything worth voting for. Biden has been worse than Trump when it comes to war. Biden has been worse than Trump when it comes to multinational trade deals that benefit the big corporations. Biden is the same or worse than Trump when it comes to healthcare. Trump at least talks the talk even if he doesn’t walk it. Sure I dislike Trump with a passion, but Biden is not that much better and maybe actually worse when I really look at it. At least Trump’s mental degradation hasn’t developed so far. I had one candidate that I actually wanted elected, because Bernie actually wants to make all our lives better. Sorry for the long winded rant, maybe I’m defusing right now.

    Biden couldn’t get 50 people to see him , yet Bernie gets thousands. This is completely rigged

    • @The Ultimate Demon rat
      Lazy non voters who know nothing about the party or its representatives , ideals , direction etc….
      Then act as if staying home is some kind of position or stand -Oh please .
      They are a shameful part of why today’s GOP are tuning us into an oligarchy.

      I’m sorry but that kind of blather is the biggest reason our government does not serve us .
      A nation gets the government it deserves !

      @Leo I agree with that. Voting should be top priority. Its obviously not. They manipulate and exploit us so what control do we really have?

    • Explain how exactly the primary process is rigged in favor of Biden. I’ll wait.

    • The Ultimate Demon rat | March 13, 2020 at 11:01 AM | Reply

      @L S D theres many different ways. Voter suppression happens, the vote isnt thoroughly counted, ballets were thrown away or hidden. Electronic voting apps seem to skew results.
      But i mean honestly hes just running on a pro oligarchy ticket and he hasnt ever talked about solutions of any kind. There was a coup in bolivia for lithium resources.. People acted like it was an impossibility to happen, and yet it happened.

    • It’s rigged if you’re a moron incapable of understanding rules and strategy.
      So yeah, I totally understand why every Bernie cult member is crying like a spoiled child.

  17. Biden would veto M4A.
    Then I will veto Biden.
    Writing in Bernie Sanders.

  18. Biden is so confused, he’s almost senile. Sorry but if you “unshackle him,” He’s gonna wonder off, and forget where he is. 🤷‍♂️

      Joe Biden is almost senile? Bernie is older than him, is he not senile?

    • Not “almost”. I helped nurse my grandparents in the last years of their life. One had advanced dementia and the other died of Alzheimer’s disease.
      Biden has definitely left the building.

    • Prequels better than Sequels Yes, Bernie knows what office he’s running for & the current year… that’s more then Joe… Sad part is I’m not being facetious… I can post the links.

    Shouldn’t the mainstream media report on the weaknesses of all the candidates not just Bernie so that voters can make an educated decision of who the most electable candidate is in the general election

  20. Let’s get both Biden and Bernie on stage for 2 hours of aggressive debate of issues and policy. We know Sanders can handle it because he does marathon rallies wherein he spends hours each day talking to the supporters, the media and answering hard questions on the fly.

    Let’s see if Biden can answer simple questions without getting lost or calling the questioner a “lying dog-faced pony soldier”.

    • Morwyn Wordnerd | March 12, 2020 at 7:10 PM | Reply

      IMO, people in powerful positions shouldn’t answer serious questions with flip insults. Professional comedians have more leeway, but our leaders should stick to the topic. I hadn’t heard the pony soldier remark and looked it up, so thx for sharing the information. Aside from the fact that ad hominem attacks (even if said in a casual, golly gee shucks I’m just kidding style, are not appropriate for people with real political power, Trump is MUCH better at schoolyard insults than Biden. If Biden and Trump debated with mud-slinging, Biden would lose. Trump is meaner, nastier, and one of his few outstanding skills is verbal bullying. If Trump tried that on Sanders, Bernie would keep bringing things back to policies and issues. He isn’t as thin-skinned as Biden, and few people are as thin-skinned as Trump. We should watch Biden and Sanders debate each other before deciding the race is over.

      The next debate was canceled. Instead of hosting a small interview style debate, the whole thing was canceled due to the pandemic.

    • Both of them are a cancer. Neither has any hope of beating Trump. One, brain damaged and the other a Bolshevik. Trump is going to be reelected in a landslide.

    • ProductiveDiscord | March 12, 2020 at 9:52 PM | Reply

      @Roger didit That would be impressive considering Trump’s victory in 2016 was by the narrowest margin in over a century.

    • @ProductiveDiscord WADDA you got to say now?? Bernie is FINISHED!! BARAHAHAHA. You losers never learn.
