Bloomberg must be into some serious BDSM to pay $300 million to be publicly humiliated.

Self defeating. Spent the whole night slamming the only 2 guys who can win.

don’t they know these same attacks will be recycled by the other side every chance between now and the general election?

we Democrats have no viable candidate. Didn’t do anything to prepare for this since 2016.

I feel some hope that someday soon the US will have a rational and affordable healthcare system.

To be honest. This election is turning out to be just like the last one. There really isn't a candidate the people can rally behind.

Tulsi and Bernie.

I must have misunderstood the purpose of these debates. Each candidate is trying to elbow his or her way to the front and that includes attacking other candidates ( there are of course levels of decency - trash nicknames belong in the toilet and knob jokes are not really suitable ). It is common sense that you go after the front runners.

What do you think they should be doing? Just stepping aside? You had no problem with tweeting unflattering photos of another’s spouse and using trash conspiracy theories to attack another’s father. As a defender of Trump the man, you clearly enjoy watching a good scrap and see below the belt filth as no problem.

It is not problem for me. Because I want trump to win. That was a total disaster. you must not have watched it live just read the CNN updates. It was bad.

YeeHAW! The knives are out and it's Democrat vs Democrat vs Democrat. I assume that the usual suspects will publically, and frequently, take this (and every other) opportunity to blame Trump for the Democrat's own choices.

tell us how their policies will help all of us without constantly pandering back to only how much they care for illegals and minorities. Tell us how they plan to pay for it other than some anonymous rich white people will be taxed more.

What do you think they should be doing?

Bloomberg is a Rogue Republican. No matter how much money he spends he will never win.

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

Heh, like Trump and health care? The wall? Ban on Muslims? Removing protections for the lower class?

Elizabeth and Pete would be an interesting pair to take on Trump and Pence!

They could be honest and just say they’ll keep piling on the debt like Trump. He said he’d get rid of the debt.

You should know better than to trust the words of people running for President. Don’t worry about spending - Trump was the meteor which made fiscal conservatives extinct.

And here come liberals with Hillary. Nope If you remove California and NY she lost popular vote too. 

That's not how it works. "If you remove all the people who voted for my opponent then I won" isn't an argument. It's not even wishful thinking. It's just wrong. You've gone from arguing against people who don't exist to imagining the results of an imaginary USA.

That's it? That's the best you could manage?

Haters gotta hate. Democrats gotta Democrat. This is what all of those Democrat campaign contributions have bought. A stage full of Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar. Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg bought his own way in.

Wow! Bloomberg just got slaughtered, that was crazy. The dude is just done, stick a for, in him.

Good riddance!

Conveniently left out the hundreds of good things done and listed 2 things well in progress (wall and healthcare) and 2 things that will not and should not ever be done. (ban and protection) Do you want these 2 things done?

Heh, like Trump and health care? The wall? Ban on Muslims? Removing protections for the lower class?

We Dems have 2 legitimate people who can win. One was just called a communist in a Democrat debate and mercilessly attacked on policy.

The other was called a sexual harasser/discriminator and a racist and mercilessly attacked for being rich.

that leaves nobody who can win now and we Dems did it to ourselves in public view. Good thing almost no one watching.

-4 ( +4 / -8 )

Tulsi and Bernie.

The only two viable candidates, and the party wants them out of they way. Pretty much guaranteeing themselves four more years of Trump.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

So many people are from the swamp. Bloomberg is part of the silt that keeps the swamp full. I am sure we are going to see his money and deep state forces hard at work on social media maligning people like Bernie Sanders who only visit the swamp out of unshakeable political need. Of course it does not matter to the powers that be which swamp rat wins. The people better rise up and stand behind a human representative unlike how they laid down the last election when Bernie got sabotaged.

I read that Bloomberg was a bit evasive on releasing his tax returns and was attacked for his comments about women and questionable actions towards minorities.

Any Trump voters here thinking they like the cut of his jib?

Mexico will pay for it.

3 ( +6 / -3 )

Nope he is in 2nd place for Democrats so seems Dems like those things.

Your ability to call out Trump for most anything just went away because he represented you on that stage. plans to disavow him? Nope

Rich people taxes are hard and take time to release. Hilarious!

It says something about the Democratic party that they slam Trump for being racist, sexist and dictatorial, and then support a guy that is actually proven to be all of these.

Another debate, another proof that our politicians are useless and incompetent... Yell at each other like a bunch of drunkyards instead of proposing something smart... The most shocking, they are all confused and don't know what is our top priority... We need first and first and first of all to solve our totally absurd unfair inequality... We desperately need a law limiting the ratio between highest and lowest paid in a company to about 10.... Everything else will solve automatically when everybody will be paid and treated fairly... I wish I am a stupid idiot and I don't understand anything and I am happy...

5 minutes in and already four of them want to go to the bathroom.

‘The Democratic Party’ are supporting Bloomberg? Sounds like a very questionable and vague statement. Please elaborate.

Isn’t it? You Trump supporters must be splitting your sides. It’s a belter.

@Blacklabel

He bought his way onto the stage. He doesn't "represent" the party unless he is chosen as the winner (which is unlikely, by the looks of things).

@commanteer

It says something about the Democratic party that they slam Trump for being racist, sexist and dictatorial, and then support a guy that is actually proven to be all of these.

I think most potential Democrat voters don't know much about the guy, but are interested to see what comes out of the debates. There were probably a lot of open minds out there before the debate (I didn't actually see it, I admit), maybe less so now.

The other was called a sexual harasser/discriminator and a racist 

You did this two days ago. You were right.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Any Trump voters here thinking they like the cut of his jib?

There's a poster here who despised him only hours ago who is now defending him to the hilt and clutching pearls at the idea that Democratic politicians are trying to keep a toxic candidate and a Republican at heart away from their nomination.

Fun fact - the person who said this:

So how many more of these racist recordings are liberals going to ignore? The man has a race problem as well as a discrimination and harassment problem.

Is the same person who said this:

The other was called a sexual harasser/discriminator and a racist and mercilessly attacked for being rich.

So you mustn't ignore Bloomberg's bigotry, but you mustn't acknowledge it either. Wow! Just the kind of consistent thinking we've come to expect from Trumpets.

Here's the one truth uttered, "We are not going to beat Donald Trump..."

MAGA2020! RIP Democrat party!

Because I want trump to win.

Bloomberg would be better for the economy. Maybe Bloomberg can pay Trump to leave the WH with some of his spare pocket change. 1-2 billion? No problem because Bloomberg is worth 60 Billion. Otherwise Trump will never leave the WH even if he is defeated in the election.

listed 2 things well in progress (wall and healthcare) 

Trump failed at healthcare. Costs are skyrocketing this year under Trump's watch. One trip to the hosp and bye bye to your house. Yes!!! Great economy under Trump when it's all going to US scam healthcare and you lose your shirt. And the joke wall? The one that the wind can literally blow down? Or you just need ladders and shovels? Also ropes.

then support a guy that is actually proven to be all of these.

So? Bloomberg would be better for the economy. He's a better billionaire than Trump.

The winner was TRUMP!
