Yeah he has zero patience for getting taken off message lol
I just saw the video and you are right. He totally did blow off the question. Also, his answer to his tax release is pretty bad too after looking at the video.
Depends on if he's the deciding vote.
So the candidate will be far worse?
Yeah Bernie's greatest strength right now is built in fanbase and name recognition
The exchange about warren's answer and the way he really really wanted to move on was worse tbh.That town hall gave me more confidence than I had yesterday that Bernie is myspace and the nominee will be facebook. Bernie was here first and popular with the kids, but the nominee will be sleeker and more palatable to the electorate as a whole.
Edit- I don't think the reparations answer was really all that yikes. Wasn't great, but it wasn't awful.
He knows the term is divisive and wants to avoid using it but supports the same sort of policies Warren pointed to (and afaik Kamala hasn't really talked about any policies). And he's just really clumsy about dealing with walking those kind of tightropes.
He’s always been a surly asshole. Some people find it charming, but I can’t stand it.
Yeah, the tightrope is ultimately a hard one to walk. With the ADOS movement gaining ground fast though, he's gonna need a better one.
I don't think he's ever really been that interested in getting better at talking off message so I wouldn't expect much movement there. Getting outwardly annoyed when he has to engage with what he sees as distractions from his message is just part of who he is.
Spoken like someone who never clicked a myspace profile in the 8th grade and had their dial-up internet connection brought to a halt by someone's egregious HTML sparkly text graphics scrolling down their page while a Panic at the Disco song screeched from their computer speakers.
Facebook is literally complicit in multiple ongoing genocides.Spoken like someone who never clicked a myspace profile in the 8th grade and had their dial-up internet connection brought to a halt by someone's egregious HTML sparkly text graphics scrolling down their page while a Panic at the Disco song screeched from their computer speakers.
This is the unsatisfying answer that Dem senators are asking every advocate of Medicare for All, Green New Deal, election reform, DC statehood and gun safety to accept: "I hope Republicans do the right thing." No way this answer survives the next 18 months
LMAO fucking wow
This guy literally argued this on Hillary’s behalf the entire 2016 election whenever pressed about “well why can’t Bernie’s plan pass but yours can if you still have a republican house?”
