    The way they omit Bernie from the conversation is sickening

      The only way Bloomberg will get my vote is if he transfers one billion into my off shore tax free account. Not Happening!

          I am voting for whomever is the Dem candidate.
          There's no other choice.
          Vote blue, give peace a chance.

            Some of the comments I have seen from Democrats is quite discouraging. With this attitude, Trump will be re-elected. Keep in mind, too, just because a candidate runs as a “progressive” or “moderate” doesn’t mean they will operate as that when they’re in office. Warren and Mayor Pete are both breaths of fresh air.

              The only thing worse than a billionaire not paying taxes is an insurance company not paying benefits. The healthcare system is as broken as the presidency.

                South Bends Mayor Pete Butt Fudge is a conniving snivelling maggot. Warren said today that Billionaires SHOULD exist. Bernie said not. BERNIE 2020

                    I would love 4 it 2 b a requirement that ALL politicians b an employee on a show like UnderCover Boss. So they can see how 80% of the population actually faces each day and what OUR struggles are.
                    Cuz there are 45 extremely anti worker judges that have been appointed since the clown show. So there will be a LOT of pain when it comes 2 workers rights and other rights that have been severely undermined.

                        600 billionaires in the world, and the other 7 billion of us constantly handing over everything we make and everything we have just so they can maintain their sense of superiority.... Can someone please explain how they *earned* that? Particularly the ones who happen to be Russian mobsters and red Chinese shipping magnates. Why does American prosperity belong to *them?* Explain that to me, you Trump-loving fascist traitors.

                          It's obvious that Dickerson has not played any attention to Andrew Yang, because if he did, he would understand why #TrumpFearsYang. If Yang were elected there would be a mandate for the Freedom Dividend and Congress would come together in the first 100 days to get rid of the shit muffin that we call the economy and get it fixed, using the policies that have been outlined and the country is already unified from both sides of the political spectrum. Pay attention to the MLK jr of our generation!

                                          2:36 Listen to all those cheers for #PeteForPresident ! The only talking point that came close was 5:48 when Dickerson said, "Imagine Trump doesn't get re-elected." Don't bother responding with any Bernie mentions: he's as divisive as Trump and his followers are just as blindly devoted to him. There's no way he will get the nomination and even more important: he doesn't deserve to lead this country.

                                                Taxing the wealthiest Americans more equitably is not "attacking" them. We should discard that entire frame.

                                                          It would be something extraordinary if Warren wins as it would be great for America. America elected Little Bush and dumb ass Trump, so like Laura/Melania said, it would be nice to have a woman at the helm. Not those exact words but something to that effect. Warren, given the opportunity would make one hell of a good change for America. Warren would bring back the respect that Americans deserve. (Just one man’s opinion) Thank you Stephen for the great Trump Show. That is what we call it in our Great Country.
