  1. Universal healthcare. Something so difficult that only 34 out of 35 modern countries have been able to pull it off. 🤷‍♂️
    Thank you Bernie. Don’t you ever change. 👏👏

      @Balloonicorn There is quite a bit of circumstantial evidence, ie., there are sufficient grounds for suspecting that Trump is an emotional homosexual, NOT a practicing homosexual but an emotional homosexual. There is more evidence than you might think about his sexual behavior and it’s out in the open. We know the kind of fetish bars he visits, we know the kind of fetish clientele he associates with, etc. All you have to do is put the pieces of the puzzle together. For example,….
      Oh well, I’ll let you look it up. The funniest part is that you think I’m kidding, just trying to make you angry. I am not. I’ll just let you do your own research. You can start with “Trump visit to the fetish bar, The Act in Las Vegas”. There are also pictures. Well, good luck and enjoy your research.

    • @James Humphrey You realize that, private insurance doesn’t go away with his plan right? It’s just healthcare for all of those who can’t afford or do not have it. 😐

    • @Betty simon The Canadian health service is excellent, and I know that from a number of reliable sources. Their figures in relation to Covid, are very good. They have taken the steps necessary to protect their people. The US has become the new centre of the epidemic, with the figures becoming more alarming daily. Basically, any country where the poor, and hard working but low waged, can’t afford to go to the hospital if they’re sick, cannot claim to be civilised.

    • @Betty simon I’m from one of those countries and my advise to you is go educate yourself. Nobody should have to pay for healthcare, it’s a human right.

    • @MAM if you did a bit of research on this case you’ll probably find that greedy American pharma are the reason this guy couldn’t get the drugs he needed. National healthcare systems have to work within a budget and can be hard to justify the exorbitant prices these companies charge for new drugs that enter the market. At the end of the day it all boils down to good old American capitalism, nothing else.

  2. Hmmm I had some hope he might get elected. Good luck America!

  3. Bernie didn’t hit a wall , he was thrown into it!

    • He hit a wall – the wall – the black people wall – same as 2016.

      He made zero adjustments and expected a different outcome.

    • Frank Heuvelman | April 11, 2020 at 1:13 AM | Reply

      A wall made by Trump.

    • @Frank Heuvelman Trump still hasn’t put up any new sections only refurbished old sections and a lot of that fell over. Bernie would have destroyed Trump and that’s what scared the dnc

    • Frank Heuvelman | April 12, 2020 at 3:14 AM | Reply

      @D Pearson I think Sanders would have destroyed the major pillars under the whole corrupt establishment. Never heard one single lie from the guy.

    • Allan Wallace | May 1, 2020 at 1:10 PM | Reply

      D Pearson agreed

    You all still don’t have any honor in how you cover him. I’m disgusted by MSNBC

  5. 2016 all over again.
    So much for change.

    • The democratic establishment is paid to lose so their corporate and wealthy campaign contributor overlords can keep their tax cuts. No surprise there.

    • Gonna stay home again? Crybaby. When Trump wins in November it will be because sulking, crybaby Sanders supporters stayed home.

    • @Ancel Rick …and he’s going to win alright, last thing that we need is some crooked democrat in the WH.

      Trump won we all know that

  6. America has to many corporate boot lickers . That’s Why He Lost ! 😢

  7. TheMoonunit96 | April 8, 2020 at 1:38 PM | Reply

    What may have played a role? YOU MSNBC! You and CNN played a major role in your ridiculous coverage of Bernie.

  8. When are we (as regular, normal citizens) going to put an end to this nonsense of a corrupt system?????🤔

    • Damario Haynes | April 9, 2020 at 2:14 AM | Reply

      @Kathryn White That’s all we want in this world is equality.

    • It’s not corrupt just because your candidate couldn’t put together the votes.

      If you were paying attention, Sanders didn’t even try.

    • @MajorLeague 1) my statement has nothing to do with sanders or any one candidate specifically.
      2) im not Dem. Hes not my candidate.
      3) if you cant admit that our system is corrupted, theres no point in conversing with you

    • @Googlee Dood What’s corrupt about Sanders trying to hijack traditional DNP politics and failing since there’s not enough ballot support in said party’s primary to support him?

      I don’t see corruption, so I don’t expect an answer. I see childish people convinced there’s boogeymen are behind everything instead of the reality that people are making voting decisions.

    • Southside Playa | April 10, 2020 at 11:09 PM | Reply

      @David Sibbald are you serious right now? what has trump done during this pandemic? NOTHING! NOTHING BUT DEATH HE HAS BLOOD ALL OVER HIS HANDS RIGHT NOW.

  9. Thank you Senator Bernie Sanders.Your powerful, compassionate, consistent, intelligent and clear message has inspired and given us hope. NEVER GIVE UP, Y’ALL. KEEP FEELING THE BERN!

    • We should not give up. I suspect he suspended his campaign mainly because he is working for a new stimulus plan (visit his site berniesnaders.com) And this was the price he would pay for other democrats to help with it. Of course Pelosi and Schumer will take credit for it. His name will remain on the ballots in states that haven’t voted yet VOTE for him. And hope for brokered convention!

  10. That’s what happens when the media trashes someone constantly and the establishment decides to road block you.

    • @Leo we’re all putting our MAGA hats on. 👌🏼

    • El Chingon you are correct and they all hate America and constantly lie.

    • Negative. Sanders can’t win a campaign, no matter all the robust left media supporting him.

      Sanders’ ideas are not popular and he’s more into those ideas than winning. Sometimes you can’t have both. Most of the time.

    • @El Chingon so what you’re saying is support for dictatorships in Russia, Saudi Arabia, north Korea among others are ok? You have a dictator in waiting in the oval office right now so be careful what you wish for.

  11. “I never quite seen something like this 2020 campaign” – Yeah of course you haven’t. Because mainstream media, who were fearful their boss’s and themselves would lose their corporate tax loopholes and actually be required to pay their fair share of taxes just like everyone else, decided to not even acknowledge his wins, but to demonize him because he is a threat to the establishment. They’d rather have an un-electable corporate bootlicker for their democratic candidate than someone that fights for the poor and middle class americans.

    MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, the whole lot of them should be proud. They gave Donald Trump his second term. I am absolutely disgusted with this system of government, and while yes, Biden wont be as dangerous as Trump, he wont represent me, or the majority of americans. He’s a 1% only candidate who doesn’t care about the poor or working class. He will let republicans walk all over him just to get more wealth inequality for themselves and their corporate donors. So will I vote? Honestly, I’ve lost faith in this government to a point that no matter who I vote for, I will still get poorer, and the rich will continue getting richer. The only difference between these 2 morons running for office is one will get us into WW3 or become an outright dictator, while the other will bow their head to republicans and corporations to screw over the american people.

    Not much of a choice.

    • *Bernie is still on the ticket.*
      My vote is EARNED. *Bernie Sanders EARNED my vote.* I will vote for Bernie Sanders.

    • @Kailia ok you’re nuts! Just saying he has Nazi style prison camps proves that. If he had Nazi style prison camps for people like Comey, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler and others that would be a great thing. Ok now 😂😂 lies of the left- Trump is racist- Trump is colluding with Russia- The corona virus is Trumps fault. I could go on and on. And these aren’t just little lies, these lies are creating a lot of division in our country. It’s sick and evil and you people are dumb enough to believe this crap. Keep believing these lies and you will be in for a MASSIVE surprise this November.

    • @Tom Griffin and go figure, you show that you are unwilling to educate yourself, and claim they are lies, then turn around and say the most attrocious thing possible. This is the last reply you are ever getting from me, and I will also be blocking your comments as they are clearly trolling at this point. You didn’t even give a proper reply to my challenge. And it’s obvious why: You choose to remain ignorant and you choose to follow a hate monger. Good day.

    • @ThatOneGirl Yep just heard about that. He’s only stopped his active campaigning to focus on the pandemic, like a true leader should. He’s remaining on the ticket. Come November, that man is getting my vote. I refuse to vote for Biden.

    • @Kailia oh yeah, and the “let’s impeach him for……uh let’s see🤔…..” hahaha whatever that lie was I don’t even think people remember. The Democrats were laughed out of Washington on that one. And the more they lie about him, the more most Americans like him. Being hateful, lying all the time and trying to divide the country doesn’t go over too well with most people in this country.

  12. So very sad. Bernie could have changed this country for the better. Now we’ll just have more of the same. 😞

    “History will show” that Americans ‘pee their pants’ in fear of change, even when that change is good for them. So corporations can rest on that front for a time. They own America and American’s votes for another five years.

    • It’s time for a revolution or our planet is going to die if we don’t

    • @Doug The Biden selection is incredibly similar to MAGA, in a way! They wanted to go _back_ to a time when Barack Obama was president, just like the MAGA cult wanted to go _back_ to the days of slavery and apartheid. Obviously, the former is better than the latter, but neither one is justified. Time only goes forward. Mr. Biden is now far more mentally infirm than he was in 2008. It’s a shame!

    • @CB BC wow…so much stupid in your comment….reeeeeee…….democrats are the party of slavery dummy lol…TDS much

    “He’s a communist!”

    -My mom, talking about the only nominee that would give her healthcare that she desperately needs. Progress will only be made one funeral at a time.

    • @Trinket Box ROFL. Learn to read. OP never wished their mom was dead.

      The reality is that if mom gets sick without insurance she will either die or become hopelessly indebted.

      Get out of here with your trash bag opinions.

      the sad truth..

    • @Young Lee Anyone that thinks he is a Communist should give up their Social Security check, Medicare, police protection, firemen. Burn their trash in their own backyard, self educate their children at home ETC ETC. Because any program that is tax payer funded that society benefits from is a Social Program! Ignorance is a bliss and many Americans wallow in it.

    • @aureliomanalo
      Americans have no concept of democratic socialism. Common in various forms in Europe. It is far far removed from communism.

    • @Dermot Jordan What a lot of them do not understand is they are already living with it . But it needs to be expanded. Any program that is tax payer funded and benefits society is actually a social program. Like Social security, medicare, police protection, firemen, trash removal, public education ETC. When it comes to politics Americans are not the brightest or best informed. As is exhibited by who they have put in office.

  15. When trump wins the election, don’t even dare blame Bernie bros

  16. The wall he hit was the DNC cheating to make sure that he didn’t win! Shame on them and msnbc for the constant attacks of Bernie! You will reap what you sow.

    Nothing has changed in the Democratic Party. Admit that MSMBC was a part of the anti-Bernie movement

  19. The DNC had a “talk” with him.
    Now Biden will lose to Trump.
    Good going DNC.

    • I believe he needs their help to draft a new stimulus plan. And this was their price. Of course Pelosi and Schumer will take credit for everything Bernie wants in it. Go to his site berniesanders.com Also if your state hasn’t voted yet he will still be on the ballot. VOTE for him.

    Bernie was only trying to get what americans need, the same rights than many other countries already have. America, you have dropped the ball, you lose.
