    lol Yes , you are so authentic by announcing who you support lol lol yes it was tremendous virtue signal lol How self centered is that idiotic comment. And there was no political calculation/ You are a Marxist and you backed a Marxist, but no political calculation there lol Too bad he absolutely no chance. Bernie is not a Democratic Socialist, when you are for the govt Nationalizing energy, you are a Marxist just like Chavez and we all know how that worked out. God forbid a Marxist gets elected as President, it would be the end of freedom and would destroy this country.

    Hehe you guys cut out the best part "Why back an old white guy ". You also had your reporter treat Sanders as though he weren't there.
    I don't know who is engineering this social change of open and acceptable racism towards the whites...but I have some ideas whom it may be and why.
    Frankly the whole experiment is entertaining and I am excited to see where this is all going. ^_^

    *As a Republican I LOVE THIS!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!! The Squad that everyone hates gets behind the oldest craziest socialist in his last run at President (if he survives it) This will work out for her like her Green New Deal was 57-0 against if anyone has forgotten. The woman scared of her own garbage disposal is backing the I'm going to give you everything free but every economist alive says it can't be done with Bernie's plan. You can stand on stage and promise the world but if people can't do the math and make it work you can forget it. 32 Trillion was the last estimate I heard to have Bernie as President. Everyone at a rally at that point is just living in a dream world. So GOOD LUCK Squad +1 in 2020!*

    AOC would not endorse Warren or Biden because they are the same as the Republicans.

      @Jimmy This is what I can give you. It was written in The Guardian.

      Sep 18, 2019 ... Eight-country poll shows people view climate crisis as priority over migration and terrorism. ... as an “emergency” and say politicians are failing to tackle the problem, ... world's biggest climate demonstrations on Friday, found that climate ... agree the world faces a climate emergency and that global warming ...

      Patricia roe I avoid wasting time reading long messages that are stating opinions or ”facts” with no evidence. Do you have a link with this poll?

    • Patricia roe
      Patricia roe Month ago

      @Jimmy I'll stand corrected on my comment , but only partially because The poll surveyed more than 1,000 people in the UK, Canada, Germany, Italy, Brazil, France, Poland and the US. It found that at least three-quarters of the public think the world is facing a “climate emergency”, with climate breakdown at risk of becoming “extremely dangerous”. On the domestic problems facing this country people put healthcare, the economy and immigration at the top of their list. The economy covers a large area including available jobs, wages, etc and how well Americans can "survive" now for themselves and their family. It comes down to the basics of life even the cavemen knew. But if they think Climate Change can't erase some of that, they are mistaken. And as I said it cannot be reversed. When considering the size of our global emissions we will eventually feel the the fall out of climate change and it will have drastic effects on our economy such as higher health and energy costs, also damage to property and agriculture. We can't keep contributing to it and think its not going to get worse, that's like throwing gasoline on a fire and then what? Going into shock because the flames got higher and hotter? Its fine to worry about the economy now, I think it is long past due to put the federal minimum wage up. But we are also contributing to a poor economy in the future.

      @Benjamin Fields the thing is, I live in Washington state. My state will vote for whoever the democratic candidate is by a wide double digit margin. I have the luxury to protest vote every election, but when I lived in Florida my calculus was definitely different.

    • Benjamin Fields
      Benjamin Fields Month ago

      Jack Glastra At least she has progressive ideas and can appeal to moderates. It takes more than young and progressive voters to win an election, though. Do take serious thought into my last comment, though. Keep an open mind, this election and if Bernie doesn’t win the nomination, don’t boycott. Otherwise, Trump will be re-elected and even worse things will happen. Keep an open mind.

    • Jack Glastra
      Jack Glastra Month ago

      @Benjamin Fields damn you're right... what we need is a boring technocratic woman in her 70s in order to win. That's a totally different approach than we tried in 2016.

    • Benjamin Fields
      Benjamin Fields Month ago

      Jack Glastra Let me break it down for you:
      Bernie was up against Hillary in 2016. Hillary, DNC’s third or fourth tier candidate won the primary, Bernie lost.
      Fast forward to 2020:
      Bernie, age 78, gets hospitalized for health reasons and has to take a break from the campaign trail. Many Dem voters are hesitant about voting for him now because they are unsure he’ll make it.
      Biden, the other front-runner, can’t form much of a coherent thought. That leaves Elizabeth Warren who still draws big crowds, polling in the top 3, and has decent health.
      Now... endorsements: Bernie was endorsed by Omar, who Trump and republicans think is anti-American(and some Democrats will take that as a negative), and AOC(who Republicans hate, and some Democrats can’t stand). That alone will be enough for Trump to rip him apart without mentioning(Democratic) “Socialism.”
      Last, I bet, if he did win, that Democrat reps in swing districts who voted with him on bills would be voted out because their constituents are moderates who probably disagree with Bernie on quite a bit.
      So please stop with this “Bernie can beat Trump” stuff. Media may be establishment, but at least they have the brains of why certain candidates have the possibility of winning.

    • Jack Glastra
      Jack Glastra Month ago

      @Benjamin Fields for me it's all about who can win. Elizabeth Warren isn't a killer, and to beat Trump we need someone who is an ice cold killer.

      @Mai Vu You did the math right? Each of those jobs, for the first year and providing no further subsidies, cost $120,000 each. The condition at the border, with the officers own posts and statistics of child deaths while in custody, don’t shock you. You are acting like the Catholic Church with child rape, grow up and read the data. She is right on both fronts, I get the idea of conformation bias, look it up first, but seriously be human before republican. Honestly to ignore suffering on many fronts to grant your position is evil. Look to thy own house first.
