You say you're giving away your money. Seriously? Just what programs are you supporting that will help us little people and especially the ones living on the streets right now? And yes you worked hard for your success, but you got breaks that small businesses don't have.

Bloomberg was against $15 minimum wage. He's lying. Again.

See the tweet above I posted that Bernie put together. If anyone is voting for Bloomberg after this they better have their brain checked.

@humphrey She knows how to get up there and bloviate just like a winger in a way, but she knows that nothing she proposes will come to pass as legislation. I still think she is hoping for a VP slot out of whoever they decide to nominate and I am willing to bet whoever that is will "forgive" her any nasty remarks as she was just campaigning after all. Just like Trump is friends with the Clintons, they talk trash about each other all day on the airwaves, then get together over drinks at some rich plutocrats house and laugh about how well their theater worked on the rubes. I cannot bring myself to listen to her anymore, but I can't bring myself to listen to ANY of them anymore either.

@Cassiodorus

if she couldn't replace him outright.

Turns out she couldn't convince enough people to replace him outright.

So she did her utmost, no doubt at the behest of the DNC and their big-money donors to peel away votes and discredit him as much as possible.

What damage that does to her reputation or political career is, probably, unimportant to those power players, though I'm sure she'll get a platinum parachute to somewhere. Hell, maybe that somewhere will be a permanent seat in the U.S. Senate, though that seems a bit pedestrian these days.

Pete tried to subtly jab Bernie and bloomberg

Bernie ignored it

Bloomberg got booed when he answered no to the 2% wealth tax and said it was idiocy. (Wasn't worth typing)

Warren is doing ok.

Holy shit, Is that a musical score in the background, Bernie bounced off pete for bringing up Denmark and did a great Right hook to Bloomberg for calling him a commie by describing what Democratic Socialism is and how we only give socialism to the rich and hit the ball out of the park,

Bloomberg gave a response that got a boo then some more that fell flat.

Biden scored a C-

Now Liz is talking about, "Gambling on a revolution" got booed for saying Amy and joe were trying to be friends with mcconnel

Amy is now talking about down ballot and saying she can beat this ticket and get rid of Mitch.

Anyone else notice her vibrating when shes talking?

This didn't you and MyBoss raise the federal minimum wage during your tenure?

BTW..kudos for Bernie going after bloom crap for his houses. All congress members have more than one house. Bloomberg is losing his cool tonight. And did Pete not shave tonight to make himself look older?

And just how many times does Bernie need to explain how he will pay for things?

Ooh too bad Amy didn't take the shot at Bloomberg for financing republicans that kept McConnell's butt in charge of the senate. And put Kavanaugh on the sc.

This debate needs boxing gloves. They seem ready to rumble. Rising is going to be great tomorrow.

even try to protect dreamers in the last budget. The dreamers only gets brought out when someone needs a talking point.

Great job by Pete for calling Amy out on voting for Trump's judges. This needs more attention on it. 2/3rds? Why not all of them? Oh yeah because they get to roll back progressive legislation.

Joe Manchin has been voting for the judges. lol don't talk about protecting minorities Pete. Mike..I don't know what the DP rules are cuz I'm not a democrat.

Twitter said the protesters were going after Joe for MyBoss deporting their families.

Glad I watched this. Best debate ever but I want to see Amy go after Pete. He was brutal.

BTW Amy. I don't care if a young girl died from a stray bullet if you put an innocent person in prison for it. She always leads with that story.

@lotlizard @lotlizard @lotlizard (edited typo, spelling and added some more words)
last debate together with what was happening in Germany, it were really some very tough days to live and watch through. So many things that made me angry inside and the only place that shows is here in comments that are sometimes extreme in their wording.
The incidence reminds me more of the shooting in Christ Church in NZ. They are still trying to find out the shooters connections. It would not surprise me they ... go far and beyond the German border

Here's a video clip showing all of Bernie's remarks at the debate, with the pertinent lead-ins from other candidates and the moderators.

I didn't watch the entire debate. It was hard enough watching this clip. Good grief, what a painful mess.

Bernie seems to have endless patience, focus, and fortitude. He's looking more and more presidential as time goes on.
