The Democratic Debate: Watch the Highlights From the First Half

Posted by


“This is the CNN/
New York Times Democratic presidential debate.” “Sometimes there are issues
that are bigger than politics and I think that’s the case
with this impeachment inquiry.” “In my judgment,
Trump is the most corrupt president in the
history of this country.” “He has committed
crimes in plain sight. And he has consistently
since he won been selling out
the American people. He’s been selling out working
people, he’s been selling out our values, he’s been selling
out national security, and on this issue
with Ukraine he has been selling
out our democracy.” “If it’s not O.K. for
a president’s family to be involved in
foreign businesses, why was it O.K. for your son
when you were vice president? Vice President Biden?” “Look, my son did
nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. Rudy Giuliani, the president
and his thugs have already proven that
they in fact are flat lying.” “Your son Hunter today
gave an interview, admitted that he made
a mistake and showed poor judgment by serving
on that board in Ukraine. Did you make a mistake
by letting him? You were the point person
on Ukraine at the time. If you can answer.” “Look, my son’s statement
speaks for itself. My son made a judgment. I’m proud of the
judgment he made. I’m proud of what
he had to say. And let’s focus on this: The fact of the
matter is that this is about Trump’s corruption.” “But you have not
specified how you’re going to pay for the
most expensive plan, Medicare for all. Will you raise taxes?” “Costs will go up
for the wealthy. They will go up for
big corporations. And for middle class families,
they will go down. I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs
for middle-class families.” “Your signature, senator, is to
have a plan for everything. Except this. No plan has been
laid out to explain how a multi-trillion dollar hole
in this Medicare for all plan that Senator Warren
is putting forward is supposed to get filled in.” “At least Bernie is being
honest here and saying how he’s going to pay for this and that taxes are
going to go up. And I’m sorry, Elizabeth, but you have not said that. And I’m tired of hearing,
whenever I say these things, ‘Oh it’s Republican
talking points.’ You are making Republican
talking points right now in this room by coming
out for a plan that’s going to do that.” “I think we need to be
focused on lifting people up. And sometimes I think
that Senator Warren is more focused
on being punitive or pitting some part of
the country against the other instead of lifting people up
and making sure this country
comes together.” “I’m really shocked
at the notion that anyone thinks
I’m punitive. Look, I don’t have a beef
with billionaires …” “Well, Anderson, this is
my first time on this stage, so I just want to start
by reminding everybody that every candidate here
is more decent, more coherent and more patriotic than the
criminal in the White House.” “This is the sixth debate
we have had in this presidential cycle and not nearly one word,
with all of these discussions about health care,
on women’s access to reproductive health care,
which is under full-on attack in America today. Women are the majority of the
population in this country. People need to keep their
hands off of women’s bodies and let women
make the decisions about their own lives.” “Thank you, senator.” “And let’s talk about that.”

  1. Can I please please hear one solid accusation about Trump crimes. Not empty words. Facts please. Because everything you guys are saying About him selling this country – I can say about you. How did he sell America? And to whom? I am listening.

  2. Biden's corruption was the elephant in the room no one was allowed to talk about! Trump 2020! 3…2…1…Liberal snowflakes scream "ORANGE MAN BAD!" blah blah blah blah blah blah….

  3. Warren: I don’t have beef with billionaires I don’t hate billionaires
    Sanders: I do

    And that’s why I prefer Sanders.

  4. MORE ACCURATELY….
    Moderator : Mr Vice President why was it OK for your son to be on the board of a foreign energy company receiving millions?
    Biden:….Me????…. look….just look at what….uhhh…Hunter….uhhh…. Biden…. is doing in a…in uh…the Ukraine….ask yourself that!

  5. The Democrat race is descending into a farce. The Clowns are in charge of the Circus trying to outwoke each other. It is becoming who is the least worst candidate. Trump must be smiling and looking forward to 2020! He needs to recruit Tulsi Gabbard over to the Republicans because she is the only one with the slightest electability and shouldn't be even seen with these Leftist Loonies.

  6. Only three people on that stage deserve to be a president: Sanders, Yang, Warren in same order. Rest of them are not gonna fight for us.

  7. How many of these debates must we endure.Keep doing this and the DNC will drive ppl to vote for trumpee again. Anderson the worst moderator in history. What was the crap at the end about Ellen? Who cares who she is sitting next to.

  8. How can you take any of them seriously? I'm not sure who the worst, but Bernie is a disaster. Put him in the nursing home.

  9. Why does she keep calling it costs and not taxes? I feel like shes been talking in circles and whatever happened to her 2¢ plan? And why are people attacking her for it? It explains it self “im raising taxes for healthcare” “okay how are you gonna fill the healthcare hole?” Like did he guy listen at all before he spoke?

  10. This video isn't bad enough. If I want to lose brain cells, Sam Seder has me covered. He is much more efficient at destroying my remaining negative three point fifty seven brain cells than these clowns. If you are going o say stupid stuff, at least spew out high quality stupidity.

  11. I am from Germny. We have publich healthcare sind 1876. It was introduced from our last king Wilhelm II. It worked through two worldwars. nobody here – no conservative party – wants to give it up. of course you can finance it. you ate the own country without public healthcare. If you need help call me: 0800 xxxxx-xxxxx.

  12. A giant piece of Warren's platform is the "wealth tax," which Yang resoundingly debunked citing its failure in several other first-world countries. What WORKS in those countries is a Value-Added Tax, which is exactly what Yang is proposing.

  13. they are all idiots and corrupted and love war and want open boarders and have no clear plan (except Trump) and don't care about the American people that is clear and so much more…

  14. All these idots on stage don't have a chance against Trump
    May Allah bless the USA with President Trump another 4 more years…
    Trump 2020

  15. Biden is " proud of his son" for peddling the family name and profiting off Joe's ties to Obama.
    He sets the bar so high.

  16. The little that they allowed Tulsi to talk makes me wonder what they are afraid of. I'll be voting for her in the primary as she stands out like a diamond in the rough !!!

  17. Politics are boring. And I respect other YouTubers too much to do this to them. So https://youtu.be/VXkjx7tnpJQ come watch my video

  18. Pete, Tulsi, Beto, & Klobuchar have all been good in prior & current positions. but they are the worst POTUS candidates to me. they are just in it for the exposure, attention, & their own future name recognition. most on stage here, should not even still be in these debates. NO ONE but Biden, Bernie, or Warren have any chance to become 2020 nominee. get all these other show boaters off the stage, where the moderators can get down to serious questions for the top candidates.

  19. almost 5k dislikes vs 2k likes, and comment section full of ppl calling out the selective style and bias of this vid…

    there is hope for humanity ✊🤠

  20. President Donald Trump looks likely to cruise to reelection next year under three different economic models Moody’s Analytics employed to gauge the 2020 race.
    Barring anything unusual happening, the president’s Electoral College victory could easily surpass his 2016 win over Democrat Hillary Clinton, which came by a 304-227 count.
    Moody’s based its projections on how consumers feel about their own financial situation, the gains the stock market has achieved during Trump’s tenure and the prospects for unemployment, which has fallen to a 50-year low. Should those variables hold up, the president looks set to get another four-year term. @t

  21. Elizabeth Warren is not divisive ..No one can rationalize certain acts or agenda's the Right Wing is pushing ., and hearing Dem's try and tear down her position is mostly grandstanding for time and the Camera .

  22. Klobuchar's one sentence was the only true thing, the rest were lies. How dumb do they think Americans are? These people are disgusting liars. Wow….it keeps getting worse. And enough of the "Trump Trump Trump" already, y'all don't believe he's bad, just say the truth and get your own agenda.

  23. Blah Blah Blah……if your tired of the same old crap these guys dish out, vote Trump. If Democrats get their way your paycheck will go directly to the government to pay for ridiculous socialist plans and the government will decide how much of your pay you will receive if any.
