Jimmy Kimmel Breaks Down Democratic Debate


[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] THOSE OF YOU WHO WATCHED THE DEBATE EARLIER TONIGHT HERE ON ABC AND FORGOT TO TURN THE TELEVISION OFF, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. YOU KNOW, TONIGHT WE WATCHED THE THIRD DEMOCRATIC DEBATE, THIS TIME FROM HOUSTON, TEXAS. IT WAS EXCITING, YOU KNOW, WATCH BEING THE CANDIDATE THE TACKLE ISSUES IS AS CLOSE AS WE GET TO FOOTBALL. THEY ALL TRIED TO STAND OUT AND AVOID BEING ELIMINATED UNDER EXTREME TIME PRESSURE IN A TELEVISED EVENT. NOW LET’S PUT 45 SECONDS ON THE CLOCK AND GO. THIS WAS A LARGE CAST OF CHARACTERS. TO HELP VIEWER KEEP TRACK OF WHO WAS WHO, ABC DID SOMETHING SPECIAL. ♪ THE ELECTION IS QUICKLY APPROACHING ♪ ♪ AND WE’VE GOT DECISIONS TO MAKE ♪ ♪ WITH SO MANY PEOPLE TO CHOOSE FROM ♪ ♪ WE DON’T WANT TO MAKE A MISTAKE ♪ ♪ WE CAN ONLY SEND ONE TO THE WHITE HOUSE ♪ ♪ AND THE OTHERS WILL HAVE TO GO HOME ♪ ♪ DEMS THE BREAKS ♪ ♪ YEAH, DEMS THE BREAKS ♪ ♪ WHOEVER GOES HOME WILL SAY DEMS THE BREAKS ♪ [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>Jimmy: I WOULDN’T WATCH THAT SHOW. IT IS WEIRD THAT THEY PUT TEN CANDIDATES ON THE STAGE. HERE’S HOW, I’D PUT THE FOUR FRONT RUNNERS AT THE CENTER OF THE STAGE AND LET THE OTHER SIX DANGLE OFF THE STAGE BY THEIR FINGERTIPS. MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG WAS UP WAY PAST HIS BEDTIME. HE ALMOST DIDN’T MAKE IT TO THE DEBATE. YOU CAN SEE HE GOT STUCK IN THE CLAW MACHINE AT THE DAVE AND BUSTERS AT THE BAY BROOK MALL, BUT HIS MOTHER WAS ABLE TO FISH HIM OUT. THE MODERATORS TONIGHT WERE GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, DAVID MUIR AND JORGE RAMOS. THEY HIT THE CANDIDATES WITH ALL THE TOUGH QUESTIONS LIKE, IF ELECTED, HOW DO WE KNOW YOU WON’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’ROURKE SPEAK SPANISH DURING THE DEBATE. HE DID. WILL JOE BIDEN CHOKE ON HIS TEETH DURING THE DEBATE. HE ACTUALLY DID. JOE BIDEN DID, HE DID WELL TONIGHT. HE WAS FACING THE RIGHT DIRECTION. HIS PANTS WERE ON. IT WAS, IT WAS A GOOD OUTING FOR HIM. YOU KNOW, THERE WERE THREE WOMEN ON STAGE. IF ANY OF THESE WOMEN ARE ELECTED, IT WOULD BE HISTORIC, AND IF, IF BERNIE OR BIDEN WERE TO WIN, IT WOULD BE PREHISTORIC. BUT BERNIE WAS — [ APPLAUSE ] BECAUSE HE’S SO OLD IS WHAT I’M SAYING. THEIR AGE. BERNIE WAS VERY BERNIE TONIGHT. HE CAME RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE YELLING. HIS VOICE WAS CRAZY. IT SOUNDED LIKE HE SWALLOWED A FROG. HE WAS SCREAMING LOUDER THAN CAM NEWTON AT THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. HE GAVE A STRONG WARNING TO GIVING AMERICANS AFFORDABLE THROAT LOZENGES.>>IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WE ARE SPENDING TWICE AS MUCH PER CAPITA ON HEALTH CARE AS THE CANADIANS OR ANY OTHER MAJOR COUNTRY ON EARTH.>>Jimmy: HE HAD HIS TURN SIGNAL ON FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF. THAT WAS EMBARRASSING. I FELT BAD FOR HIM. [ APPLAUSE ] THIS WAS THE FIRST DEBATE WHERE JOE BIDEN AND ELIZABETH WARREN WERE ON STAGE TOGETHER. THEY’VE BEEN DESCRIBED AS FRENEMIES. IT’S A WEIRD SITUATION. ELIZABETH WARREN IS THE CANDIDATE MOST DEMOCRATS SAY THEY’D LIKE TO VOTE FOR, BUT THE MAJORITY OF DEMOCRATS THINK JOE BIDEN IS THE GUY THE COUNTRY WOULD VOTE FOR. BUT I DON’T KNOW. I DON’T THINK IT’S A GREAT IDEA TO TRY TO GUESS WHAT OTHER PEOPLE WANT. THAT’S HOW YOU WIND UP EATING AT GOLDEN CORRAL. I THOUGHT YOU WANTED TO COME HERE. MOST OF WHAT HAS THE DEMOCRATS WORRIED IS AFTER HILLARY, WILL ANOTHER FEMALE CANDIDATE BE ABLE TO BEAT DONALD TRUMP? WILL IT BE TOO RISKY? I THINK A FEMALE HAS A BETTER CHANCE AGAINST TRUMP, ESPECIALLY IN A DEBATE. WOMEN ARE MUCH BETTER AT HANDLING BABIES THAN MEN. IT’S A BIOLOGICAL FACT. SOME MADE WAVES, MOST NOTABLY, THE BUSINESSMAN, ANDREW YANG. HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER SAID HE’D BE DOING SOMETHING NO PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HAS EVER DONE BEFORE, WHICH IS EXCITING TO HEAR, BECAUSE THERE CAN BE SO MANY THINGS. MAYBE HE WAS PLANNING TO EAT A TIDE POD ON CAMERA. OR RIDE IN ON AN OSTRICH. WHO KNOWS. BUT ANDREW YANG DID NONE OF THOSE THINGS. INSTEAD, HE GAVE AWAY CASH.>>I’M GOING TO DO SOMETHING UNPRECEDENTED TONIGHT. MY CAMPAIGN WILL NOW GIVE A FREEDOM DIVIDEND OF $1,000 A MONTH FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR TO TEN AMERICAN FAMILIES. SOMEONE WATCHING THIS AT HOME RIGHT NOW. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT CAN YOU SOLVE YOUR OWN PROBLEMS BETTER THAN ANY POLITICIAN, GO TO YANG2020.COM AND TELL US HOW $1,000 A MONTH WILL HELP YOU DO JUST THAT.>>Jimmy: LIKE A RADIO STATION CONTEST. THIS THOUSAND DOLLAR THURSDAY. THAT MAY BE THE MOST RIDICULOUS PROPOSAL I’VE SEEN ON THIS NETWORK, AND I’VE WATCHED EVERY EPISODE OF THE BACHELORETTE. HE ALSO HAD FUN WHEN HE TOOK THE STAGE TONIGHT.>>ENTREPRENEUR ANDREW YANG. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: I’D LIKE TO SEE JOE BIDEN DO THAT. SOME OF THE CANDIDATES WENT AFTER JOE BIDEN, LIKE HE WAS SOME KIND OF DEAD BEAT DAD ON THE MAURY POVICH SHOW. JULIAN CASTRO IN PARTICULAR. THERE WAS ONE MOMENT WHEN CASTRO LASHED OUT AT BIDEN FOR FORGETTING SOMETHING, WHICH HE DIDN’T FORGET, BY THE WAY, AND BERNIE APPEARED TO LEAN OVER AND HELP JOE OUT. IT WAS KIND OF ENDEARING. IT MADE ME HOPEFUL FOR A REBOOT OF GRUMPY OLD MEN. B BETO O’ROURKE HAD A BETTER NIGHT. O HE LOOKS LIKE THE HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER YOU KNOW HAS WEED IN HIS DESK. HE CALLED DONALD TRUMP A WHITE SUPREMACIST AND ANNOUNCED A PLAN FOR A REPARATIONS BILL AND A NEW MADEA MOVIE BY THE END OF THE YEAR. CORY BOOKER WAS THE ONLY UNMARRIED CANDIDATE IN THE DEBATE. THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING, A SINGLE PRESIDENT. YOU SEE HIM ON TINDER. CAN’T SWIPE RIGHT ON A DEMOCRAT. HAVE TO SWIPE LEFT ON THEM, RIGHT? HE’S DATING ROSARIO DAWSON, THE ACTRESS. BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY LIVE TOGETHER A LOT OF THE TIME, UNTIL THREE DAYS AGO, SHE HADN’T OFFICIALLY ENDORSED HIM, WHICH IS, I MEAN, HOW MANY DISHES MUST THIS GUY LEAVE IN THE SINK? OVERALL, I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD DEBATE. I THOUGHT ABC NEWS DID A GREAT JOB. I DON’T KNOW WHO WON THE DEBATE, BUT WATCHING CANDIDATES DISCUSS THE ISSUES INTELLIGENTLY, USING REAL FACTS, I’D FORGOTTEN WHAT IT WAS LIKE. IT WAS LIKE WALKING OUT OF NORTH KOREA AND INTO A COSTCO. IT WAS THAT SAME. PRESIDENT TRUMP TOLD REPORTERS HE WOULD NOT WATCH THE DEBATE LIVE TONIGHT. SAID HE WAS GOING TO TAPE IT AND WATCH IT LATER AS A RERUN. THIS IS WHAT HE WAS DOING DURING THE DEBATE.>>THE LIGHT BULB. PEOPLE SAID WHAT’S WITH THE LIGHT BULB. I SAID HERE’S THE STORY. I LOOKED AT IT, THE BULB WE’RE FORCED TO USE, NUMBER ONE, MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE LIGHT’S NO GOOD. I ALWAYS LOOK ORANGE.>>Jimmy: YEAH. IT’S THE LIGHT BULB THAT MAKES YOU LOOK ORANGE. NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TAN IN A CAN. [ APPLAUSE ] TRUMP ALSO ENTERTAINED THE GANG OF THE INSTITUTE WITH A ROUTINE ABOUT SLEEPY JOE BIDEN AND PRESIDENT XI. WE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO SLOW IT DOWN FOR TONIGHT’S EDITION OF DRUNK DONALD TRUMP.>>HE WANTS SLEEPY JOE. CAN YOU IMAGINE THOSE TWO GUYS IN A ROOM? XI, HA, AND HERE’S SLEEPY JOE, WHAT? WHERE AM I? WHERE AM I? JUST SIGN HERE, SLEEPY JOE. JUST SIGN HERE. ♪ ♪ [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: SO, IN BETWEEN HIS STANDUP FIGURES SHALL THE PRESIDENT IS STILL FIGURING OUT WHO’S GOING TO REPLACE HIS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER. THERE WERE REPORTS TODAY THAT HE WAS THINKING ABOUT GIVING THE JOB TO MIKE POMPEO WHO WOULD THEN HAVE TWO JOBS TO BE FIRED FROM IN THREE MONTHS, WHICH WOULD BE UNUSUAL BUT NOT UNPRECEDENTED. THERE WAS ONE OTHER SECRETARY OF STATE WHO ALSO ACTED AS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER, HENRY KISSINGER, WHICH WOULD MAKE SENSE FOR TRUMP, BECAUSE NOBODY KISSINGER KISSINGER KISSINGERS HIS ASS LIKE MIKE POMPEO. HE MADE IT CLEAR HE HAS MANY OPTIONS TO FILL THIS MOST RECENT HOLE.>>A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT THE JOB. IT’S A GREAT JOB. IT’S GREAT BECAUSE IT’S A LOT OF FUN TO WORK WITH DONALD TRUMP, AND IT’S VERY EASY, ACTUALLY, TO WORK WITH ME. YOU KNOW WHY IT’S EASY? I MAKE ALL THE DECISIONS. THEY DON’T HAVE TO WORK.>>Jimmy: SOUNDS LIKE A TERRIFIC WORKING ENVIRONMENT. HE MAKES ALL THE DECISION, WHETHER THEY BE ORIGINAL RECIPE OR EXTRA CRISPY. OF ALL THE HORRIBLE THINGS HE’S BEEN TRYING TO DO, THERE’S ONE SUBJECT ON WHICH THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN CRYSTAL CLEAR, AND THAT IS THIS.>>I’M AN ENVIRONMENTALIST. I WANT CRYSTAL CLEAN WATER. I WANT CRYSTAL CLEAN WATER. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE CRYSTAL CLEAN WATER. CLEAN, BEAUTIFUL, CRYSTAL WATER. CLEAN, CRYSTAL CLEAN WATER. WE WANT CLEAN WATER. CRYSTAL. CLEAN, BEAUTIFUL, CRYSTAL WATER. NICE, BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN WATER.>>Jimmy: SO WHAT DID THEY ANNOUNCE TODAY? THEY’RE ROLLING BACK OBAMA’S CLEAN WATER ACT WHICH LIMITS THE AMOUNT OF CHEMICALS BUSINESSES CAN PUT IN OUR WATER. HOW DOES IT WORK. DID THEY WAKE UP AND SAY WHAT HORRIBLE THING CAN WE DO TODAY? I KNOW, LET’S POISON THE WATER. HE’S ROLLED BACK PROTECTION OF THE WATER, AIR, ENDANGERED SPECIES AND PUBLIC LAND. ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS ROLLING BACK WHAT OBAMA D IID. I’M SURPRISED HE DIDN’T ORDER SASHA AND MALEAH BACK INTO THE WOMB. THE CANDIDATES WERE WARNED BY ABC NEWS AND THE DNC NOT TO USE FOUL LANGUAGE, BECAUSE IF THERE’S ONE THING WE’VE LEARNED, IT’S THAT VOTERS WILL NOT TOLERATE A PRESIDENT WHO USES FOUL LANGUAGE. WITH THAT SAID, IT’S TIME FOR A SPECIAL DEBATE EDITION OF THIS WEEK IN UNNECESSARY CENSORSHIP.>>LAST YEAR, DEMOCRATS [ BLEEP ]ED 40 REPUBLICAN [ BLEEP ]S IN THE HOUSE.>>I’VE MET PEOPLE [ BLEEP ] THEIR DOCTORS. I’VE MET PEOPLE WHO [ BLEEP ] THEIR NURSES, WHO [ BLEEP ] THEIR PHARMACISTS.>>YOU’VE GOT TO TALK ABOUT THE WORKING CLASS ISSUES. THE PEOPLE WHO TAKE A [ BLEEP ] AFTER WORK.>>THIS IS ABOUT HONESTY, BIG [ BLEEP ].>>IN MY DEBATE I WAS CALLED A [ BLEEP ] FROM THE IRON RANGE. WHEN SHE SAID IT, I SAID [ BLEEP ] YOU.>>THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO DO FOR YOU AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. [ BLEEP ] YOU.>>I KNOW HOW [ BLEEP ]. AND I KNOW HOW TO WIN. I [ BLEEP ] GIANT [ BLEEP ], AND I BEAT THEM.>>I AM ASIAN. SO I HAVE A LOT OF [ BLEEP ], [ BLEEP ].>>IF YOU WANT TO COMPARE [ BLEEP

Jimmy Kimmel on Democratic Debate


>>Jimmy: EARLIER TONIGHT FROM THE FOX THEATER THE FIRST OF TWO DEMOCRATIC DEBATES THIS WEEK. IT’S JOHN HICKENLOOPER’S ELECTION TO LOSE. THIS WAS SOME LINEUP. IT WAS MORE PILEUP THAN LINEUP. TEN CANDIDATES GOT SEVEN SECONDS EACH TO SOLVE THE HEALTH CARE CRISIS. THERE WERE MORE CHARACTERS THAN ON THE SHOW “THIS IS US” IN THIS DEBATE. THERE THEY ARE. MEET THE NEW MANAGEMENT TEAM AT KINKOS. JOHN HICKENLOOPER STRETCHING ON BETO’S FOOT THERE. THAT’S ONLY HALF OF THEM. IT’S WEIRD, THEY DON’T HAVE A BETTER PROCESS FOR THINNING THE HERD. HAVE 30 YEARS OF REALITY TV TAUGHT THE DEMOCRATS NOTHING? YOU CAN’T GO FROM 20 CANDIDATES RIGHT TO ONE. YOU HAVE TO PUT THEM ON AN ISLAND AND SEPARATE THEM INTO TRIBES. CAN’T THEY COMBINE STEVE BULLOCK AND JOHN DELANEY AND MAKE THEM ONE GUY? CNN HAS BEEN HYPING THIS THING FOR WEEKS NOW. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE FANS LINED UP THIS MORNING IN DETROIT WERE FIRED UP.>>GOVERNOR, THESE ARE YOUR PEOPLE HERE.>>THEY ARE. AND WE’RE FIRED UP. WE’RE THRILLED CNN IS HERE AND THIS DEBATE, MICHIGAN, EVERY ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE GOES THROUGH MICHIGAN.>>Jimmy: MY GOD, YOU COULD ALMOST FILL A MINI VAN WITH ALL THOSE PEOPLE. THERE WERE A LOT OF RULES TONIGHT. CNN GAVE THE CANDIDATES 60 SECONDS TO ANSWER A QUESTION. 30 SECONDS FOR A REBUTTAL. WHEN THEIR TIME WAS UP, A RED LIGHT APPEARED WHICH DID PUT BERNIE SANDERS AT A DISADVANTAGE. BECAUSE USUALLY WHEN THE LIGHT TURNS RI TURNS RED HE FALLS ASLEEP UNTIL SOMEONE BEHIND HIM HONKS THE HORN. HE ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE HE’S POINTING AT EVERY BUTTON IN THE ELEVATOR AT ONCE. HE HAS PROGRESSIVE IDEAS AND IS TRYING TO REACH YOUNGER VOTERS. NOWADAYS, IF YOU WANT TO ATTRACT THE YOUNGER CROWD ALL YOU NEED IS THE BABY FILTER.>>WE HAVE TO TAREK ONKE ON HIS SEXISM, SEASON SEASON PHOBIA.>>Jimmy: A LOT OF PEOPLE NOTICED THAT AMY KLOBUCHAR AND ELIZABETH WARREN WERE DRESSED ALIKE, BUT THEY WERE ACTUALLY DRESSED LIKE MICHAEL JACKSON. THERE’S MARYANN WILLIAMSON. REALLY? SHE’S LIKE IN THE MOVIE TRAILER CATS BECAME A PERSON. HOW MANY DREAM CATCHERS WAS THIS COME ABLE TO SELL? PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID HE WAS PLANNING TO WATCH THE DEBATE TODAY. HE STARTED THE DAY WITH LIGHT YELLING ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN.>>MITCH McCONNELL IS A MAN WHO KNOWS LESS ABOUT RUSSIA AND RUSSIAN INFLUENCE THAN EVEN DONALD TRUMP, AND I KNOW NOTHING. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>Jimmy: FINALLY COMMON GROUND. THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN TAKING A LOT OF HEAT FOR HIS ATTACKS ON THE CITY OF BALTIMORE AND THEIR CONGRESSMAN ELIJAH CUMMINGS, CUMMINGS IS AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND MOST OF BALTIMORE. BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT RACIST AS THE LEAST RACIST PERSON IN THE WORLD.>>I AM THE LEAST RACIST PERSON THAN ANY ONE IN THE WORLD.>>Jimmy: HE HAS TO BE THE LEAST RACIST PERSON ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. WHAT IS THAT? DOES THAT MEAN HIS WIFE AND KIDS ARE MORE RACIST THAN HE IS? IF YOU DO A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR MOST RACIST PERSON IN THE WORLD, GUESS WHOSE FACE COMES UP FIRST, SECOND, SIXTH AND SEVENTH OUT OF TEN AND ON TOP OF NOT BEING RACIST, TRUMP CLAIMS THAT AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN BALTIMORE ARE HAPPY ABOUT WHAT HE SAID.>>THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CALLING THE WHITE HOUSE. THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY AS WHAT A PRESIDENT HAS DONE. BUT THEY’RE SO HAPPY THAT I POINTED OUT THE CORRUPT POLITICS OF BALTIMORE. IT’S FILTHY DIRTY. IT’S SO HORRIBLE. AND THEY ARE HAPPY AS HELL. [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: MR. PRESIDENT, AFRICAN-AMERICANS ARE ON THE PHONE. THEY’RE HAPPY YOU SAID THEY LIVE IN HELL. NOTHING IS TRUE. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THIS RACIST STUFF IS PART OF TRUMP’S MASTER PLAN TO FIRE UP HIS BASE. I THINK THEY’RE GIVING HIM TOO MUCH CREDIT.

Hannity: Far-left Democratic Party hits new levels of radicalism


IN SALT LAKE CITY, YOU CANNOT GO WRONG, YOU WILL LOVE IT. OBVIOUSLY, I LIKE HAMBURGERS PAIRED WELCOME TO “HANNITY.” WE ARE WITNESSING WHAT IS A LOGICAL, MAJOR SHIFT IN AMERICAN POLITICS. LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN. THE NEW FAR LEFT EXTREME SOCIALIST DEMOCRATIC PARTY, THEY ARE HITTING NEW LEVELS OF RADICALISM. MUELLER DIDN’T DELIVER ON THEIR COLLUSION FANTASY, AND BY THE WAY, RUSH WAS GREAT EARLIER TONIGHT WHEN HE SAID “OH, HILLARY NEEDS TO BE IN JAIL AND INDICTED, IF YOU DID WHAT SHE DID, YOU WOULD BE IN JAIL. THE TRUMP AGENDA SUCCEEDING, THAT IS DRIVING THEM OFF THE RAILS. IT WAS ON FULL DISPLAY LAST NIGHT. FAKE NEWS CNN PUT THE 2020 DEMOCRATS ON STAGE ONE AFTER ANOTHER, HOUR AFTER HOUR OF HARD-CORE SOCIALISM, ARE THEY COMPLETELY TRIED TO OUT SOCIALIST OF THE OTHER SOCIALIST ON STAGE, IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP, OPEN BORDERS, GUNS, OPPRESSIVE TAXES, AND OF COURSE, YES, REDISTRIBUTION AND THE GREEN NEW DEAL, WHERE CRAZY BERNIE SANDERS WAS CONFRONTED ABOUT THE REAL FAILURES OF SOCIALISM THROUGHOUT HISTORY. WHY WOULD WE NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY? AGAIN, FROM A WOMAN WHOSE FAMILY ACTUALLY FLED THE FORMER SOVIET UNION IN 1979 CARE TAKE A LOOK.>>MY FATHER’S FAMILY LEFT RUSSIA IN 1979 FLEEING FROM SOME OF THE SAME SOCIALIST POLICIES YOU SEEM EAGER TO IMPLEMENT IN THIS COUNTRY. MY QUESTION IS, HOW DO YOU RECTIFY YOUR NOTION OF DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM WITH THE FAILURE OF SOCIALISM IN COUNTRIES THAT HAVE TRIED IT?>>YOUR ASSUMPTION THAT I SUPPORTED OR BELIEVED IN AUTHORITARIAN COMMUNISM THAT EXISTED WITHIN THE SOVIET S EXISTED WITHIN THE SOVIET V EXISTED WITHIN THE SOVIET N EXISTED WITHIN THE SOVIET O EXISTED WITHIN THE SOVIET , I OPPOSED IT. WHAT DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM MEANS TO ME AS WE EXPAND MEDICARE, WE PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL AMERICANS, WE REBUILD CUMBERLAND INFRASTRUCTURE. IN OTHER WORDS, GOVERNMENT SERVES THE NEEDS OF ALL PEOPLE, RATHER THAN JUST WEALTHY CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTORS.>>Sean: OF COURSE, BERNIE, THE SOCIALIST, DIDN’T HAVE AN ANSWER, BECAUSE EVERYWHERE HIS IDEAS, HIS UTOPIA IS PUT IN PLACE, THEY ALWAYS FAIL. KEEP YOUR DOCTOR, KEEP YOUR PLAN, SAVE MONEY SCARED EVERYONE LOST DOCTORS, PLANS, ONLY ONE CHOICE, EVERYONE PAID MORE AND IT GOT WORSE, BECAUSE SANDERS IS BACKING THE RIGHT FOR ALL FELONS TO VOTE. PRISONERS, MURDERERS, YES, EVEN TERRORIST LIKE THE BOSTON BOMBERS. YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS UP. TAKE A LOOK.>>YOU HAVE SAID THAT YOU WILL BE PEOPLE WITH FELONY RECORDS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO VOTE WHILE IN PRISON. IT DOES THIS MEAN YOU WOULD SUPPORT AND FRANCHISING PEOPLE THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBER AND CONVICTED TERRORIST AND MURDERE MURDERER?>>I THINK THE RIGHT TO VOTE IS INHERENT TO OUR DEMOCRACY. YES, EVEN FOR TERRIBLE PEOPLE. SO I BELIEVE PEOPLE COMMIT CRIMES, THEY PAY THE PRICE. THEY GOT OUT OF JAIL, I BELIEVE THEY CERTAINLY SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE, BUT I DO BELIEVE EVEN IF THEY ARE IN JAIL, THEY ARE PAYING THEIR PRICE TO SOCIETY, BUT THAT SHOULD NOT TAKE AWAY THEIR INHERENT AMERICAN RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR DEMOCRACY.>>Sean: SHOCKING, BERNIE WANTS TO TAKE MORE OF YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY, RAISE YOUR TAXES, ELIMINATE ALL PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE. YOU ONLY GET THE GOVERNMENT VERSION, GOOD LUCK WITH THAT. GET RID OF ALL FOSSIL FUELS, GET RID OF THE COMBUSTION ENGINE, WE WILL LET SEX OFFENDERS, MURDERERS, TERRORISTS, VOTE FROM PRISON. WHAT A PLAN FOR AMERICA’S FUTURE, AND THAT IS ONLY ONE CANDIDATE. LOOK AT KAMALA HARRIS, TOOK EVEN HER BIG GOVERNMENT AGENDA EVEN FURTHER. CALIFORNIA SENATOR RAMPING UP HER ATTACKS, YEP, ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT, THINKING WE DON’T HAVE A CONSTITUTION AND WE DON’T HAVE COEQUAL BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT. AMAZING MOMENT. TAKE A LOOK.>>THERE ARE PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON, D.C., SUPPOSES LEADERS, WHO HAVE FAILED TO HAVE THE COURAGE TO REJECT A FALSE CHOICE, WHICH SUGGESTS YOU ARE EITHER IN FAVOR OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT OR YOU WANT TO TAKE EVERYONE’S GUNS AWAY. SUPPOSE A LEADERS IN WASHINGTON, D.C., WHO HAVE FAILED TO HAVE THE COURAGE TO RECOGNIZE, YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU WANT TO GO HUNTING, THAT IS FINE, BUT WE NEED REASONABLE GUN SAFETY LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY, STARTING WITH UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS AND A RENEWAL OF THE ASSAULT WEAPON BAN. UPON BEING ELECTED, I WILL GIVE THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS 100 DAYS TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND HAVE THE COURAGE TO PASS REASONABLE GUN SAFETY LAWS, AND IF THEY FAIL TO DO IT, THAT I WILL TAKE EXECUTIVE ACTION.>>Sean: QUICK “HANNITY” CIVICS LESSON FOR THE CALIFORNIA SENATOR . THAT’S NOT HOW OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC WORKS. OUR GOVERNMENT WORKS. NO MAGICAL COUNTDOWN CLOCK GIVES THE PRESIDENT SOLE AUTHORITY TO ATTACK CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS BECAUSE CONGRESS WILL DO WHAT YOU WANT. REMEMBER, PRESIDENT TRUMP’S EMERGENCY DECLARATION, WHILE WITHIN HIS AUTHORITY, LEGISLATIVELY, CONSTITUTIONALLY, ACTING PURSUANT TO A REAL LAW PUT OUT BY CONGRESS, PASSED BY CONGRESS TO SECURE THE SOUTHERN BORDER, GRANTING HIM THE POWER TO DO SO. SOMETHING LIKE THE CONSTITUTION COMMANDER IN CHIEF. DEMOCRATS, THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT IT. LAST NIGHT, DID YOU HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT SERIOUS EFFORTS TO KEEP OUR NATION SAFE AND SECURE? REMEMBER, TWO YEARS, 4,000 PLUS HOMICIDES, 30,000 SEXUAL ASSAULTS, 100,000, OH, YEAH, VIOLENT ASSAULTS BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CRIMINALS. TWO YEARS! NOW IT WAS JUST THE OPPOSITE LAST NIGHT. GOOD OLD MAYOR PETEY, GENIUS THAT HE IS, TALKING ABOUT AMNESTY FOR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT DIDN’T RESPECT OUR LAWS, OUR CONSTITUTION, OUR SOVEREIGNTY, AND OUR BORDERS. TAKE A LOOK.>>THERE IS A BROAD U.S. CONSENSUS THAT WE NEED TO FIND A WAY TO PROTECT DREAMERS. BUT AS YOUR QUESTION BRINGS OUT, THERE ARE OVER 10 MILLION PEOPLE WHO ARE UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS IN THIS COUNTRY WHO DON’T FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY. ON THE REALITY IS, WE CAN’T HAVE COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WORKS UNLESS IT ADDRESSES THE STATUS FOR THOSE 11 PSALM MILLION UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS. WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS MAKE SURE THERE IS A PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP FOR THEM TOO.>>Sean: OF COURSE, NO DEMOCRATIC EVENT WOULD BE COMPLETE WITHOUT, YES, EVEN MORE LIES AND CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUT TRUMP AND RUSSIA. FOUR SEPARATE INVESTIGATIONS, THE FBI NINE MONTH INVESTIGATION, HOUSE INTEL INVESTIGATION, SENATE BY PARTISAN INVESTIGATION AND ROBERT MUELLER HIMSELF, NO COLLUSION. LISTEN TO SENATOR WARREN CALLING FOR IMPEACHMENT, WITH NO BASIS. DID SHE READ THE CONSTITUTION? TAKE A LOOK.>>THE TOOLS THAT WE ARE GIVEN FOR THAT ABILITY IS IMPEACHMENT PROCESS. THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS. THIS IS ABOUT PRINCIPLES. THIS IS ABOUT WHAT KIND OF A DEMOCRACY WE HAVE. IN A DICTATORSHIP, EVERYTHING IN GOVERNMENT AND REVOLVES AROUND PROTECTING THE ONE PERSON AT THE CENTER. BUT NOT IN OUR DEMOCRACY, AND NOT UNDER OUR CONSTITUTION. WE HAVE CHECKS AND BALANCES, AND WE HAVE TO PROCEED IN A WAY UNDERSTANDING HISTORY.>>Sean: SENATOR, WHAT PART OF COLLUSION DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND? BY THE WAY, SENATOR, I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION: DID HILLARY CLINTON BREAK THE LAW UNDER THE ESPIONAGE ACT, TOP SECRET CLASSIFIED INFORMATION ON THAT SECRET SERVER? AND WAS HER INTENT TO OBSTRUCT JUSTICE WHEN SHE DELETED, BLEACHED PIT, BUSTED UP DEVICES WITH HAMMERS, PULLED OUT SIM CARDS? WARREN FOLLOWED UP THAT REMARK WITH MORE TALK ABOUT, YEAH, HIGHER TAXES. REMEMBER, SHE WANTS TO LEGISLATE STEALING COME OVER AFTER YOU PAY YOUR TAXES, IF YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE ANY LEFT, SHE WANTS THE GOVERNMENT TO SAY YOU SAVED TOO MUCH AND WE ARE GOING TO GO BACK AND TAKE ANOTHER BITE AT THE APPLE, AND DON’T FORGET, WHEN YOU DIE, YOU PAY A BIGGER BITE OF THE APPLE. THEY ALWAYS GET THE GOLD IN YOUR TEETH IF THEY COULD. GOVERNMENT DEBT AND FORGIVENESS, FREE COLLEGE, WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR ALL OF THIS? TAKE A LOOK.>>WE ARE GOING TO ROLLBACK STUDENT LOAN DEBT FOR ABOUT 95% OF STUDENTS WHO HAVE DEBT. THAT IS PART ONE. AND PART TWO IS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE NEVER GET IN THIS MESS AGAIN ON STUDENT LOAN DEBT, AND THAT IS TO MAKE COLLEGE UNIVERSALLY AVAILABLE, WITH FREE TUITION AND FEES.>>Sean: WENT TO THE REST OF US GET OUR REFUND? I WROTE FOR TEN YEARS A CHECK THAT YOU MAKE A PAYMENT, I TOOK OUT ONE STUDENT LOAN, AND GUESS WHAT, 5805, WHEN I DIDN’T HAVE ANY MONEY. NOT WHAT WE ARE SEEING IS A PARTY THAT HAS GONE SO FAR LEFT IT EVEN LOOKS LIKE CRAZY, CREEPY UNCLE JOE BIDEN IS HAVING COLD FEET, ACCORDING TO A NEW REPORT TONIGHT, HE AGAIN PUSHED BACK HIS LAUNCH, WHICH WAS SET FOR THURSDAY, WON’T DO AN OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN KICK OFF UNTIL MONDAY, AND A NEW PIECE OUT IN THE DAILY MAIL LAYS OUT THE CHAOS SURROUNDING BIDEN’S 22 “ROLLOUT,” RAISING MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT CREEPY, CRAZY UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN TE UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN TW UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN TD UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN TM UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN TC UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN TA UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN TT UNCLE JOE EVEN HAS A PLACE IN T. WAIT UNTIL THEY HEAR SOME OF THE THINGS WE ARE ABOUT TO ADVISE THEM ON. THIS IS YOUR NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY. REMEMBER, MEDICARE FOR ALL WOULD TAKE UP MOST OF THE BUDGET FOR TEN STRAIGHT YEARS. THAT IS ONE ITEM. GAS AND OIL, REMEMBER, WE ARE GOING TO GET RID OF WHAT IS THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR ECONOMY, THE GREEN NEW DEAL IS 94 PLUS TRILLION DOLLARS IN TEN YEARS. LEADING FELONS VOTE, ABOLISHING I.C.E., NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, CALIFORNIA, ILLINOIS, PICK OFF FUTURE, STACKING THE SUPREME COURT WITH LIBERAL ACTIVIST JUDGES, REPARATIONS, CRIPPLING THE SECOND AMENDMENT, THEY WANT A 70% TOP RATE ON INDIVIDUALS, MARGINAL RATE. 90% ON CORPORATIONS. NOT MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO INVEST IN AMERICA. AND IT GOES ON. AND MAYBE YOU WANT TO DISMISS ALL THIS, MAYBE YOU WANT TO LAUGH AT ALL OF THIS IS JUST CRAZY, UNHINGED MADNESS, BUT THESE ARE REALLY IDEAS WITHIN THE NEW RADICAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRATIC PARTY. THEY HAVE, WHAT? OVER 100 CONGRESS AND SENATORS SUPPORTING OCASIO-CORTEZ’S NEW DEAL? THESE ARE IDEAS THAT HAVE BEEN TRIED AND HAVE BEEN A MASSIVE FAILURE EVERYWHERE THEY HAVE BEEN TRIED. IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS, LOOK AT THE PROMISES OF OBAMACARE. KEEP HER DOCTOR AND PAY LESS, HOW DID THAT WORK OUT? TREMENDOUS HUMAN SUFFERING. LET’S GO TO SAN FRANCISCO. OH, WE SENT OUR OWN LAWRENCE JONES BACK YESTERDAY AND HAVE EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE JUST AHEAD, BUT HAVE TO GIVE A VIEWER WARNING, IT IS PRETTY DISTURBING WHAT IS GOING ON IN NANCY PELOSI’S BACKYARD. BY THE WAY, WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO BOTH HER HOME AND OFFICE, HOMELESSNESS, NEEDLES, MASSIVE WEALTH INEQUALITY, SANCTUARY CITIES, DAY IN AND DAY OUT, AND YES, FECES. WE’VE GOT THE VIDEO, ALL OVER THE PLACE. THAT IS WHY SO MANY PEOPLE ARE FLEEING PLACES LIKE CALIFORNIA, NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, ILLINOIS, WHERE ALL OF THESE PROGRESSIVE FAIRY TALES TURN OUT TO BE NIGHTMARES COME TO LIFE AND WHY DO DEMOCRATS MAKE SUCH A FAR LEFT TURN? WHERE THE OUT OF TOUCH WITH LAW-ABIDING, COMMON SENSE AMERICANS THAT MAKE THIS COUNTRY GREAT? WHY EXPLOIT PEOPLE’S INNATE, NATURAL FEAR THAT THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE AWAY EVERY FEAR THAT THEY HAVE AND TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING, PROMISES OF EVERYTHING FOR THREE? IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! THEY WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO DELIVER IT. IT IS BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS, THEY ARE BEING LED BY A NEW CROP OF RADICAL LEFTISTS. THIS IS THEIR POWER BASE. THEY MAKE YOU DEPENDENT, YOU REELECT THEM, THEN YOU ARE VOTING BACK IN THE VERY BENEFITS THEY ARE PROMISING TO GIVE YOU. ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS, EVEN AS BAD AS THEY ARE, THEY ARE EVEN TERRIFIED NOW OF LOSING TO THE FAR LEFT BASE THAT THEY WANT TO WIN REELECTION. THEY ARE LITERALLY RUNNING ON THOSE PROGRAMS. IT IS WHY EXTREMIST LIKE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ, I DIDN’T MISSPEAK, ARE LEADING THE PARTY. PELOSI IS REALLY SPEAKER IN NAME ONLY. EVERY DAY SHE SOMEHOW FINDS A WAY TO TOP HER PREVIOUS BAD IDEA WITH ONE THAT IS EVEN WORSE. THE LATEST, DISMISSING EFFORTS BY THE PRESIDENT TO REFORM THE VA SYSTEM TO HELP OUR VETS, SAYING EVERYTHING IS FINE. THANKFULLY, THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN FIXING IT. TAKE A LOOK.>>WHEN IT COMES TO THE VA, MY PARENTS TOLD ME GROWING UP THAT IF IT AIN’T BROKE, DON’T FIX IT. THE IDEA THAT THIS HAS GROWN, THIS THING THAT PROVIDES QUALITY CARE TO OUR VETERANS, SOMEHOW WE NEED TO OPTIMIZE IT, TINKER WITH IT UNTIL WE DON’T EVEN RECOGNIZE IT.>>Sean: IT IS NOT JUST A SPEAKER OCASIO-CORTEZ, HER RADICAL COHORT, CONGRESSWOMAN OMAR, WHO BY THE WAY, AGAIN EMBROILED IN SCANDAL. REMEMBER, FIRST IT WAS A SERIES OF ANTI-SEMITIC REMARKS. BY THE WAY, WHAT BERNIE SAID LAST NIGHT ABOUT ISRAEL, A DOWNRIGHT DISGRACE FOR EVERY DEMOCRAT. DOWNPLAYING, IN THIS CASE, CONGRESSMAN OMAR, 9/11 TERRORIST ATTACKS, NOW IT HAS BEEN REVEALED AT THE MINNESOTA CONGRESSWOMAN ATTACKED THE SOLDIERS THAT DIED FIGHTING IN THE 1993 BLACK HAWK DOWN OPERATION, POSTING IN A TWITTER THREAD OH, ABOUT 19 U.S. SOLDIERS DYING IN THE BATTLE OF MOGADISHU “IN HIS SELECTIVE MEMORY, HE FORGETS TO ALSO MENTION THE THOUSANDS OF SOMALIS KILLED BY AMERICAN FORCES THAT DAY.” #NotTodaySatan .” WHERE IS THAT ACCOUNTABILITY, THE OUTRAGE? WHERE THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERS? THIS IS THEIR PARTY. AND WHERE IS THE MEDIA IN THIS COUNTRY? IF THIS WAS A REPUBLICAN, THEY WOULD HAVE GONE INSANE RIGHT NOW, BUT WE ARE HERE TO DO THE WORK THE MEDIA DOESN’T DO, AND THAT IS TO EXPOSE HOW RADICALS AND HOW RADICAL THIS PARTY HAS BECOME. THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND SIMPLE, BASIC, FUNDAMENTAL THINGS LIKE THE LAW, THE CONSTITUTION, SEPARATE OF POWERS, COEQUAL BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT, OR ANY OF THE REAL CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS LIKE THE GREEN NEW DEAL, WHICH COMRADE BILL DE BLASIO, HERE’S RAMPING UP IN NEW YORK CITY, CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS TO HAPPEN, WANTING TO TAKE THE CITY BACK TO THE STONE AGE, THAT IS FRED FLINTSTONE FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE YOUNG AT HOME, WITH BILL de BLASIO’S FACE ON IT, WITH “INEFFICIENT STEEL AND GLASS SKYSCRAPERS,” BECAUSE THEY’RE BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. SO WHAT EXACTLY DOES BILL DE BLASIO WANT TO BUILD WITH? I GUESS WE CAN’T USE TREES BECAUSE THAT WOULD PILLAGE THE FOREST. TO DO DEMOCRATS NOT UNDERSTAND THAT THESE MATERIALS THEY WANT TO BAND, ALONG WITH OIL AND GAS, FOSSIL FUELS, IT IS THE LIFEBLOD OF OUR ECONOMY AND EVERY ECONOMY AROUND THE GLOBE, IT DRIVES WAGES AND OPPORTUNITIES. FOR PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY, IT IS WHY WE ARE PUTTING THIS BIG NEW GREEN NEW DEAL DISASTER ON TRIAL. BECAUSE DEMOCRATS WANT TO ROLL BACK ALL OF THE SUCCESS OF THE TRUMP AGENDA. ARE YOU BETTER OFF THAN YOU WERE TO END A HALF YEARS AGO? IF THE ANSWER IS OBVIOUSLY YES, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, WE ARE NOW ENERGY INDEPENDENT IN AMERICA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 75 YEARS. NOT RELYING ON COUNTRIES THAT HATE OUR GUTS FOR THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR ECONOMY, AND NOW WE ARE NET EXPORTER OF ENERGY. DID YOU SEE THIS? FORECASTERS ARE REVISITING THEIR FIRST QUARTER GDP ESTIMATES. S&P 500, NASDAQ CLOSING AT RECORD HIGHS. ALL WHILE DEMOCRATS WANT TO RECREATE, YOU KNOW, WHAT? A ERODE THE ENTIRE MIDDLE CLASS, SEND US BACK TO FRED LYNN STONE’S ERA? THE SUCCESS OF THE FORGOTTEN MEN AND WOMEN, THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THIS COUNTRY THAT GO TO WORK, PAY THEIR TAXES, OBEY THE LAWS, RAISE THEIR KIDS, REALLY? THEY ARE GETTING GUARANTEED FROM THEM? I DON’T THINK SO. IT IS GOING TO BE COMING FROM YOUR ABLE-BODIED, HARDWORKING AMERICANS, WHO THEY ARE CHASING OUT OF BIG CITIES. AND IF YOU LEAVE NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, CALIFORNIA, GREAT, DON’T BRING THOSE STUPID POLICIES WITH YOU WHEN YOU GO TO TEXAS WITH THE CAROLINAS, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, OR FLORIDA.

The 2020 election is ramping up and certain
candidates seem to be facing the same question… Why are you, as a straight white male, the
right person to lead the Democratic Party? Does being a white man put you at a disadvantage? 44 out of 45 presidents in this country have
been white men. Do you think we need another one? Why are all these male candidates being asked
— seemingly out of the blue — about their privilege? The majority of democratic voters, are women
and people of color…and they have enormous power and yet we’ve never had these kinds
of choices. The Democratic primary is the most diverse
in history, reflecting the changing demographics of the democratic electorate. We are changing from a majority white to a
majority-minority country. That is dramatic political shift in our country and
its most pronounced in Democratic primaries, where for better
or worse, the vast majority of minorities are siding with the Democrats. Couple those demographic changes with the
major progressive movements of the past few years, it seems inevitable that those cultural
conversations would find their way back the campaign trail. Any candidate running for the Democratic nomination
needs to have a meaningful and deep understanding of diverse communities in this country because
that’s who votes in Democratic primaries. So, reporters are asking candidates to speak
about their own identity. And their answers have been…varied. I’ve never been pulled over as an African
American teenager by an officer driving through a white neighborhood. I’ve never been a woman talked over in a
meeting. So I approach this with humility. As a white man who has had privileges that
others could not depend on or take for granted, I’ve clearly had advantages over the course
of my life. What is your experience with becoming aware
of your own privilege? Well…I had one in college. It’s largely a story of how naive I was… Well that’s privilege. Yes, that’s right. Cause you can get away with being naive. I think recognizing that and understanding
that others have not, doing everything I can to ensure that there is the opportunity and
the possibility for advancement and advantage for everyone is a big part of this campaign
and a big part of the people who comprise this campaign. If I would’ve run 30-40 years ago as president,
being a white man would’ve been an advantage. The way I think of it now, is we’re all
on a level playing field. And isn’t that the way it should be? Answering these questions is one thing. How candidates back up their sentiments is
another. Take Bernie Sanders in 2016. Let’s be clear. Black Lives Matter pretty much ended that campaign. The race in 2016 was over when Bernie Sanders
got his hat handed to him in South Carolina. An overwhelming victory in South Carolina. Because what that meant, just like in 2008 was.. one candidate was able to consolidate strongly
the minority vote. And if you consolidate strongly minority vote,
you’re gonna be the Democratic nominee. Just that simple. It’s math. This time around, Bernie has gotten smarter
on issues that affect minority communities But then in January, multiple women came forward
with allegations of sexual harassment on his 2016 campaign, forcing Bernie
to apologize. We were criticized for being too male. That was the correct criticism. Too white. That was a correct criticism. That is going to change. These candidates are being asked to reckon
with their identities and their policies positions are being scrutinized, but the bottom line
is they’re being challenged to show whether they understand their privilege — and that’s
something we haven’t seen before. You can have all the policy in the world but
if you can’t speak truth to power for certain communities, it’s gonna be hard for you to
get their vote regardless of where you are on the policy. The reality is, is that one of the deepest
and most a painful issues in American society today is the intractability of the barriers
that are very real and exist still, for women and for underrepresented minorities. And that is the work of our time, breaking
through those, being honest about them, and then moving forward to address the very real
inequities that continue to exist in our society. That is at the heart, that is at the heart
of what the debate on the side of the Democratic party will be in the election, it is the empathy
election.

History of the Republican Party (1854-2016)


To understand the context of Republican voters
settling on Donald Trump, let’s take a look at the history of the GOP. The Grand Old Party was formed by antislavery
forces in the 1850’s. Back then, the Republican party was actually the progressive party in
American politics. The first Republican President was Abraham Lincoln, who was elected in what
political scientists say was the first of three critical elections in American history.
Before Lincoln was even inaugurated, seven southern slaveholding states had seceded from
the Union, setting the stage for the Civil War. Lincoln and the Republicans in congress
who controlled the Union won that war and freed the slaves. But after Lincoln was assassinated,
during reconstruction, the Republican Party punished former leaders of the Confederacy
by not allowing them to vote or hold office, and gave former slaves the right to vote.
This turned whites in the south against the Republican Party for the next 100 years and
led to the creation of the Klu Klux Klan and Jim Crow laws that enforced segregation and
took the vote away from blacks. In 1896 the second critical election in American
history gave William McKinley the presidency and the Republicans large majorities in both
houses of congress. This time-period cemented the Republicans as the party of low taxes,
conservative social policies, and anti-government intervention in the economy, although legendary
President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt tried to push the Party in a more progressive direction. Fast-forward to after the stock market crash
of 1929 when the country was in the depths of the Great Depression, but the Republicans
refused to take direct government intervention to help the economy, leading to the third
critical election in American history, in 1932, when Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt
and his New Deal Coalition defeated incumbent Republican President Herbert Hoover by 413
electoral votes. “That the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Roosevelt
then enacted the most progressive social programs in history, won reelection three times, and
led the US to an eventual victory in WWII. The Republican-controlled congress never wanted
to be out of power for that long again, so they approved the twenty-second amendment
to the constitution, which limited presidents to just two terms in office. After the war Roosevelt’s Democratic successor
Harry Truman integrated the U.S. military – a move that angered many white southern
Democrats who began switching to the Republican Party. In 1952, Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower – the
World War II Supreme Allied Commander – became President. His centrist governing style went
a long way toward normalizing Roosevelt’s expanded role for the federal government. In 1964 Democratic President Lyndon Johnson
signed the Civil Rights Act which was intended to end discrimination, especially in the south.
This moment, more than any other, defined the parties as we still know them today, with
the Democrats coming full circle from being the party of the Confederacy 100 years earlier,
to ultimately embracing diversity and equal rights; whereas the Republican Party shifted
significantly to the right on social issues as it happily took in the many white voters
abandoning the Democrats. This shift was on full display, as 11 southern
states voted for the Republican Richard Nixon. Six years after Nixon’s Presidency ended
in disgrace after the Watergate scandal, the Republicans finally had a leader they could
be proud of in the former actor and Governor of California Ronald Reagan. Reagan took advantage
of a bad economy and the Iran hostage crisis to defeat sitting President Jimmy Carter in
a landslide and became the father of modern conservatism with deep tax cuts and a massive
buildup of the U.S. military that helped facilitate the fall of the Soviet Union. Reagan was followed by his Republican Vice
President, George H.W. Bush, who helped cement many of Reagan’s signature policies. Bill Clinton’s democratic presidency was
dangerous for Republicans in that he was a charismatic white southerner capable of making
inroads with the Republican base, so to counter his appeal, they highlighted his infidelities,
a tactic that was largely successful in tainting his presidency despite Clinton’s success
in building a strong economy and securing a relatively peaceful world. Clinton’s troubles led to the victory of
Texas Republican Governor George W. Bush over Clinton’s Vice President Al Gore in one
of the closest elections in history, a contest that was ultimately decided by the Supreme
Court. “Just moments ago I spoke with George W Bush and congratulated him on becoming the
43rd President of the United States.” Bush actually lost the popular vote to Gore by
more than a half million nationwide. The 2001 attacks sent Bush’s approval ratings
into the stratosphere, but his presidency quickly went awry. Instead of continuing the
strong economy he inherited from Clinton, W. Bush instead invaded Afghanistan and Iraq,
two costly wars that the Republicans combined with deep tax cuts, creating a massive hole
in the US budget. By the time Bush left office, his approval rating was below 30%, turning
many Americans against the Republican Party. In the final weeks of the 2008 election the
economy collapsed, undermining the credibility of the Republican nominee John McCain, and
handing the White House to Barack Obama – the nation’s first black President – who won
a convincing victory with large majorities in both houses of congress. Upon taking office,
Obama moved quickly to enact his reformist agenda, which included overhauling the Health
Care system, jumpstarting the economy with an $830 billion jobs and infrastructure stimulus
package, and passing financial regulatory reform to rein in the excesses of Wall Street. Out of power and desperate to stop Obama and
the Democrats from achieving too much, Republican elected officials and powerful conservative
media outlets began to make thinly veiled racial attacks on Obama to stir up passions
among their mostly white supporters; passions that the party’s 2008 Vice Presidential
nominee – the rural Alaskan governor Sarah Palin – had flirted with during the previous
campaign. It worked, and with the help of right-wing mega-donors, like the Koch brothers,
who spent hundreds of millions of dollars to stop the Democrats from acting on their
electoral mandate, Republican voters came out in full force in the 2010 midterm election,
handing the Republicans back the House in the biggest congressional swing in more than
60 years. But Republicans in congress didn’t live
up to their promises to repeal Obamacare or many of the other achievements of President
Obama, further frustrating their voters–the culmination of which was the birther movement,
spearheaded by none other than Donald Trump, who insisted that Hawaiian-born Barack Obama
was actually born in Kenya. “I want him to show his birth certificate.” In the eyes of most Americans, Trump was embarrassing
himself. Obama even taunted Trump to his face several times. “All kidding aside, we all
know about your credentials and breadth of experience. [Laughter]” That was likely
the moment when Trump made up his mind to run for President, as his ego couldn’t handle
becoming a laughingstock at the hands of his archenemy. But the same outlandish behavior
that made Trump the butt of jokes, also made him a favorite among Republican primary voters. It also helps that Donald Trump is an expert
at using America’s media culture to his advantage, and in his campaign for the Republican
nomination he simply doubled down on the braggadocio, “go ahead, go ahead – Donald – don’t get
nervous” translating his appeal with the tv-obsessed masses as the tell-it-like-it-is
billionaire into millions of actual votes to become the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential
nominee. To color in the picture I’ve drawn of how
we got to Trump, here are the more colorful words of Matt Taibbi, a writer for Rolling
Stone, who offers an autopsy of the Republican Party that is so unwaveringly true that I’ll
repeat it at length–his article is linked below. Quote, “The rise of Trump’s ‘throw the
bums out’ vibe was the inevitable consequence of the basic dynamic of the party, which by
the end was little more than a collection plate for global business interests that were,
if not foreign exactly, certainly nationless. There was a time in this country – and many
voters in places like Indiana and Michigan and Pennsylvania are old enough to remember
it – when business leaders felt a patriotic responsibility to protect American jobs and
communities. Mitt Romney’s father, George, was such a leader, deeply concerned about
the city of Detroit, where he built AMC cars. But his son Mitt wasn’t. That sense of noblesse
oblige disappeared somewhere during the past generation, when the newly global employer
class cut regular working stiffs loose, forcing them to compete with billions of foreigners
without rights or political power who would eat toxic waste for five cents a day. Then they hired politicians and intellectuals
to sell the peasants in places like America on why this was the natural order of things.
Unfortunately, the only people fit for this kind of work were mean, traitorous scum, the
kind of people who in the military are always eventually bayoneted by their own troops.
This is what happened to the Republicans…” Thanks for watching. And a big thanks to Audible.com for sponsoring

Tucker: Moderates aren’t welcome in the Democratic Party anymore


WE WANT TO OPEN WITH LESS THAN BREAKING NEWS. THIS IS NOT A FOX NEWS ALERT. I WAS GO, CONGRESSMAN SETH MALDEN OF MASSACHUSETTS DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION. IF YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF SETH MOULTON? DORGAN MENOMINI HAVE. HE SERVED IN THE UNITED STATES RINKER NEW YORK FOUR TIMES BUT OTHER THAN THAT HE HASN’T DONE MUCH OTHER THAN THAT COLLECTING USELESS CULTURE GAZE AND RUNNING FOR OFFICE. WHAT’S INTERESTING IS WHAT HE’S BEING FORCED TO DROP OUT OF THE RACE TODAY. BY ANY SANE STANDARDS, WALTON IS A THOROUGHLY LIBERAL DEMOCRAT. ON EVERY ISSUE. HE’S MORE LEFT-WING THEN BARACK OBAMA WAS ON THE DAY HE LEFT OFFICE. THREE YEARS AGO, HE WOULD BE CONSIDERED A LIBERAL FIREBRAND. NOT ANYMORE. BOY THE LUNATIC STANDARDS OF THE MODERN DEMOCRATIC PARTY, SETH MOULTON IS NOW A FLAMING MODERATE AND THAT’S THE KISS OF DEATH. MODERATES ARE NOT WELCOME IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY ANY LONGER. WATCH WHAT HAPPENS FOR EXAMPLE AT THE LAST DEBATE WHEN CONGRESSMAN KIM RYAN OF OHIO URGED HIS FELLOW LIBERALS TO TAKE A PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS INTO ACCOUNT. THEY TREATED HIM LIKE A MAN WITH AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE. WATCH THIS.>>IN THIS DISCUSSION ALREADY TONIGHT, WE TALKED ABOUT TAKING PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE AWAY FROM UNION MEMBERS IN THE INDUSTRIAL MIDWEST. WE TALKED ABOUT DECRIMINALIZING THE BORDER AND WE’VE TALKED ABOUT GIVING FREE HEALTH CARE TO UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS WHEN SO MANY AMERICANS ARE STRUGGLING TO PAY FOR THEIR HEALTH CARE. I QUITE FRANKLY DON’T THINK THAT THAT IS AN AGENDA THAT WE CAN MOVE FORWARD ON AND WHEN DID WE GOT TO TALK ABOUT THE WORKING CLASS ISSUES THAT. THE PEOPLE TO TAKE A SHOWER AFTERWARD WHO HAVEN’T HAD A RAISE IN 30 YEARS. IF WE FOCUS ON THAT, WE CAN WIN THE ELECTION.>>NOT A LOT OF APPLAUSE FOR THAT. THEN ONE FORM IS CONGRESSMAN JOHN DELANEY TRIED TO ENCOURAGE HIS PARTY TO RESTRICT ITS AMBITIONS TO THE PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE, ELIZABETH WARREN ORDERED HIM TO BE BANISHED FROM WONDERLAND FOREVER.>>I THINK DEMOCRATS WIN WHEN WE RUN ON REAL SOLUTIONS ON IMPOSSIBLE PROMISES BUT WHEN WE RUN ON THINGS THAT ARE WORKABLE, NOT FAIRY TALE ECONOMICS. BECAUSE YOU KNOW, I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYBODY GO THROUGH ALL THE TROUBLE OF RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES JUST TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE REALLY CAN’T DO AND SHOULDN’T FIGHT FOR. I DON’T GET THAT.>>Tucker: YOU AND YOUR REALITY-BASED IDEAS. HOW DARE YOU! BEGUN. DEMENTED, OBVIOUSLY, BUT AS A POLITICAL MATTER, IT HAS BEEN HIGHLY EFFECTIVE. WHEN HE DROPPED OUT TODAY, CONGRESSMAN MOULTON NOTED THAT QUOTE, IT’S EVIDENT THIS IS NOW A THREE-WAY RACE BETWEEN BIDEN AND WARREN AND SANDERS AND REALLY IT’S A DEBATE ABOUT HOW FAR LEFT THE PARTY SHOULD GO. EXCEPT, THERE ISN’T REALLY A DEBATE. THE FARTHEST LEFT CANDIDATES ARE WINNING OF THE NEARLY 20 PEOPLE IN THE FIELD, ONLY BIDEN, WARREN, AND SANDERS CAN MUSTER MORE THAN 10% OF SUPPORT. WHICH IN FACT MAKES IT A TWO-PERSON RACE IF WE ARE GOING TO BE HONEST ABOUT IT AND WHY WOULDN’T WE BE? BIDEN MAY BE A DECENT PERSON BUT HE’S FADING. HE SAYS WITH THINGS A LOT AND HE DID IT AGAIN TODAY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. LISTEN TO THIS.>>MY SENIOR SEMESTER THEY WERE BOTH SHOT AND KILLED. IMAGINE WHAT WHAT HAPPENED IF GOD FORBID BARACK OBAMA HAD BEEN ASSASSINATED AFTER BECOMING A DEFECTIVE NOMINEE. WHAT WOULD’VE HAPPENED IN AMERICA?>>Tucker: IMAGINE THAT YOU ARE BIDEN’S CLINICAL DIRECTOR SITTING OFFSTAGE AND ALL OF A SUDDEN HE WANDERS INTO UNSCRIPTED TERRITORY AND SAYS IMAGINE THE ASSASSINATION OF BARACK OBAMA. YOU’VE GOT YOUR HEAD IN YOUR HANDS AND FREQUENTLY AT TEXTING REPORTERS TRY TO GET THEM TO DEEMPHASIZE A PEERLESS BALANCE, THIS IS NOT AN ATTACK ON JOE BIDEN GET HE’S KNOCKING TO BE THE NOMINEE. HE’S NOT CAN BE THE PRESIDENT DID I MEAN, SERIOUSLY. HE IS NOT. SO THE ACTUAL RACE COMES DOWN TO WARREN AND SANDERS. SANDERS. COMPETING VISIONS OF HOW TO ACHIEVE THE SAME SOCIALIST FANTASY. WARREN’S PROMISING REPARATIONS BASED ON SKIN COLOR. THAT’S POPULAR. SANDERS WANTS A GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF THE ENTIRE ENERGY SECTOR. OKAY. THEY WILL BE WORKING TO OUT CRAZY EACH OTHER FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS. THAT IS A DYNAMIC AND GUARANTEED TO PRODUCE YET MORE EXTREMISM. AND IT HAS SOME DEMOCRATIC LEADERS WORRIED. YESTERDAY FOR EXAMPLE, THE DNC VOTED ON A PROPOSAL TO HOLD THE DEBATE FOCUSED EXCLUSIVELY ON CLIMATE CHANGE. WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT? WELL, BECAUSE THE SOLUTIONS THE CANDIDATES WOULD PROMISE LIVE ON TELEVISION ARE INSANE. SPEND $16 TRILLION, THEN AIRPLANES, SEIZE CONTROL OF THE ENTIRE U.S. ECONOMY. OKAY. THE TRUST OF RIAN’S LOVE STUFF LIKE THAT. NORMAL PEOPLE FIND IT TERRIFYING. EVEN THE PARTY HACKS HERE IN D.C. DON’T LIKE IT AND THAT’S PROBABLY A COMPLEMENT HONESTLY. YOU REALLY THINK NANCY PELOSI BELIEVES CLIMATE CHANGE IS AN EXISTENTIAL CRISIS? OF COURSE SHE DOESN’T THINK THAT. PLUS, SHE FLIES PRIVATE PEER BARACK OBAMA CAN SAY WHATEVER HE WANTS ABOUT CARBON EMISSIONS, SHOOK HIS CHIN COME AND BE VERY CONCERNED BUT WHEN YOU ARE SPENDING 15 MILLION OF YOUR OWN DOLLARS ON A BEACHFRONT DATE IN MARTHA’S VINEYARD, YOU ARE NOT TOO WORRIED ABOUT THE OCEANS RISING WHERE THE PROBLEM IS, THE DEMOCRATIC BASE DOESN’T GET THE JOKE. DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY VOTERS BELIEVE THE TALKING POINTS.

Cardi B & Bernie Sanders Talk Politics


TIME. MEANWHILE, THE RACE FOR 2020 IS HEATING UP. THIS IS THE TIME WHEN THE CANDIDATES PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS TO SEPARATE THEMSELVES FROM THE PACK. SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS IS PART OF AN INTERESTING SCENARIO. HE DID A Q&A WITH CARDI B AT A SALON IN NEW YORK. THEY BOTH USED TO BE STRIPPERS. THEY WORKED AT THE SAME CLUB. CARDI HAD SOME GOOD, PRETTY GOOD COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS FOR THE SENATOR, AND HE REALLY SEEMED TO ENJOY IT, TOO. ♪ ♪>>LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, ME AS A NEW YORKER, NOT NOW, BUT, YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS, I WANT ABLE TO PAY MY RENT, AND EAT.>>THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE WILL END UP PAYING LESS THAN HEALTH CARE.>>Jimmy: MEET SEN TRUMP SILVER. WE HAVE BERNIE SANDERS HANGING OUT WITH CARDI B, DONALD TRUMP WANTEDING TO FEE A$AP ROCKY. JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO HAVE TO TURN CHANGE HIS NAME TO JOE BUTTA. JOHN HICKENLOOPER IS OUT, AFTER ALMOST NO SPECULATION. JOHN HICKENLOOPER ENDED HIS CAMPAIGN TODAY. IT’S ALWAYS A BAD SIGN WHEN YOU LEARN SOMEONE WAS RUNNING FROM THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THEY DROPPED OUT.

What is populism and how is it shaping global politics?


Populism can be very hard to define because
it varies from national context to national context. The one thing that parties, movements, politicians
who are described as populists tend to share is this insistence that So there’s a very “us versus them” quality
to populism. They’re really a consequence of other parties and institutions failures,
rather than the cause of them. Billionaires in this country With left wing populists, the enemy tends to be a sort of financial or business type of elite. When Mexico sends it’s people, they’re not
sending their best. In a lot of other countries, the enemy may
be immigrants, people who look different than us, people who think different than us. The social and economic problems that Europe
is currently grappling with started decades ago and have sort of gradually increased over time. So what we really had was this kind of conflation
of economic and social problems that really I think, push a lot of voters to embrace radical change. The upcoming French elections provide us with
a great prism through which to understand the meaning and the rise of populism. Marine Le Pen who represents the national
front has turned herself into an incredibly powerful, and I think interesting figure. Should Macron win and not manage to convince
voters afterwards that his program can actually solve their problems; we should expect her
to come back in the next presidential election even stronger. Germany, along with France remains the main
player, the main power in Europe so what happens there really has a huge impact outside of
the country’s borders. The populist right, the Alternative for Germany,
was a few months ago predicted to do quite well at the national elections. Now it seems to have declined, somewhat partially due to infighting. Historically of course, because of Germany’s
past, there’s been a real barrier to the rise of far right populism in Germany. So the fact that we’re even seeing seeds
of it, is really a reflection of how deeply the structural shifts in European political life go. The Netherlands, the populist there was predicted
to come out on top. Even though Wilders did not win, he did manage
to increase his vote. So, I wouldn’t take the election result
as a sign of absolute defeat but a sign that we have to continue to worry about the underlying trends that fed these parties. It’s much more dangerous in a way in places
like Poland and Hungary because the institutions and the norms of democracy are much weaker
and therefore much easier to maneuver around or even overthrow. We’ve seen that happen in Hungary, we’ve
seen that happen in Turkey. It also of course happened in Venezuela. And people are very worried about something
like that happening in a place like Poland. But if we think about populism as a consequence
of rising dissatisfaction and the inability of elites and institutions to deal with it;
then there could potentially be a silver lining in populism. Populists tend to raise issues that a lot
of people are concerned about. They tend to focus on problems that are not
being addressed. If traditional elites and institutions can
look and say hey we better figure out better ways of dealing with these issues and concerns, then populists will have performed oddly enough a kind of backhanded service. If not, then we can expect the populists to continue
to grow in support, and probably the problems not to be absolutely addressed. Politics is about getting your message across. So populists tend to be very good at this because they tend to present pretty simple and often problematic solutions to contemporary problems.

The Second 2019 Democratic Debate: Key Moments, Day 1 | NYT News


“How you doing?” “It’s good to see you!
I’m good.” “Democrats win when
we figure out what is right, and we get out there
and fight for it.” “I think Democrats win when
we run on real solutions, not impossible promises.” “But I’m a little more pragmatic.” “If we embrace
a far-left agenda, they’re going to say we’re
a bunch of crazy socialists. If we embrace a
conservative agenda, you know what
they’re going to do? They’re going to say we’re
a bunch of crazy socialists. So let’s just stand up
for the right policy.” “We need to have a campaign
of energy and excitement and of vision.” “We are more worried
about winning an argument than winning an election.” “Folks, we have a choice. We can go down the road
that Senator Sanders and Senator Warren
want to take us, which is with bad policies
like Medicare for all, free everything and
impossible promises that will turn off independent voters
and get Trump re-elected.” “Democrats flipped 40
Republican seats in the House and not one of
those 40 Democrats supported the policies
of our front-runners at center stage.” “I get a little bit tired of
Democrats afraid of big ideas.” “I don’t understand
why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of
the United States just to talk about
what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for.” “Senator Warren’s plan, basically that she put out,
we would not be able to trade with
the United Kingdom.” “But why do we got
to be the party of taking something away
from people?” “No, no one is the party—” “That’s what they’re running on.
They’re running on—” “What do you say to
Congressman Delaney?” “You’re wrong.” “… Bernie, you don’t have to yell.” “But throw your hands up.” “All right!” “You haven’t—” “You don’t know that, Bernie. “Second of all — I do know,
and I wrote the damn bill.” “But you are playing into
Donald Trump’s hands.” “If you think any
of this wonkiness is going to deal with
this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred
that this president is bringing up in this country, then I’m afraid that the
Democrats are going to see some very dark days. There is an injustice
that continues to form a toxicity
underneath the surface, an emotional turbulence that only reparations
will heal.” “Thank you very much.
Senator Sanders—” “… Medicare for all
is comprehensive. It covers all
health care needs.” “I have a better path:
Medicare for America.” “I just have a better
way to do this.” “My plan, BetterCare,
is fully paid for.” “That’s the concept of my ‘Medicare for all
who want it’ proposal.” “Thank you, Ms. Williamson.
Thank you, Ms. Williamson.” “Hope you’ll come back
to me this time.” “Go ahead.” “Thank you, mayor.” “And Washington
can’t deliver—” “Thank you, mayor.” “You can’t expect—” “Thank you, congressman.
We’re going to move on. We’re going to move on.” “Stand by please,
stand by please. Please abide by the rules.”
