    #Yanggang2020 #YANG2020 #LETYANGSPEAK My hypothesis on why Stephen Colbert seems to be biased towards Andrew Yang, is that if Yang does eventually become the President of the United States, Colbert wouldn't have any content for his show, at least nothing like covering Trump, but I guess he could continue following Trump's daily escapades. Or, he knows that by smearing Yang, Yang's campaign will garner more attention and followers.

    Canada here. We've tested and continue to verify the validity of a UBI in this country, which I hope we will implement. I can honestly say that Andrew Yang is the next president that the US needs. #Yang2020. Stephen, please do a better job in covering him. Your fans are his too.

    Ah hah, now people are getting the hint that Colbert is biased based on his coverage of Yang and Gabbard?

    If the worst they can come up with is ridicule Tulsi for what she's wearing, she is doing something right.

    If Yang likes math so much, why hasn't he worked out the numbers for his $1000 basic monthly income plan?

    Tulsi Gabbard had the most successful attack because she said it with the demebor that said "This isnt right" its heart, corperate money and salesmen cant replicate it no matter how mucb they try

    Last presidential election, I made tweets like "America is ready for a female president. But no that one (photo of Clinton) this one! (photo of Gabbard) "

    So to see Tulsi on stage really is a great thing.

    Unfortunately she stands little chance as long as the media remains biased, and the smear remains false. If you repeat a lie enough times, it starts sounding true. Like her meeting Assad for discussions, has turned into her supporting or apologising for Assad. It's sad to see people lose a grip on reality based on intentional lies. America is just too ignorant to look anything up and maintain a balanced and critical view, they just believe whatever is catchy enough. That's how we ended up with Trump, for instance.

    No one gets it all you need to be Donald Trump is a catchy slogan something that people can remember. Mark my words im right. Trump will win without a democrat having a catchy slogan no matter which one it is.

    A black woman who has spellcheck… surely you don't mean Harris? especially after Gabbard took a giant shit on her and reduced her to a gibbering mess.

    That's why Mr. Yang pointed out the tv reality star analogy that may have offended
    hosts such as Stephen Colbert. Comedy is great when the context is appropriate : D

    We just need a true progressive and an outsider, I would be happy with a Yang, Bernie, Tulsi, Warren or Marianne, and hope that one of them will make it, and that others will fill important cabinet positions and VP. An establishment candidate isn't going to win against Trump, and we won't see the economic change that we need in this country, we won't see any change at all with an establishment candidate like Kamala, Biden, Booker, or Buttigieg. All these people have bad records that Trump can throw in their face, but Bernie has an excellent record and has fought for social and economic justice for decades when it wasn't the popular thing to do. The only thing Trump can do with Bernie is call him a socialist, but he will call any of the Democratic nominees a socialist regardless. Tulsi and Yang bring in conservative voters and would be great in Bernies cabinet or as VP. Yangs message is extremely important, and he addresses some of the problems with Bernies plans, and Tulsi would make a great secretary of state. Warren would be great as the secretary of treasury, and marianne can address the deep psychological issues that are dividing this country.

    I love how you convinently hide Yang and Gabbard behind that giant number 2 in the thumbnail while the huge bozos of the race can be seen plain as day. Purely despicable. They're the only 2 candidates that stand a ghost of a chance against Trump and you lot are doing everything you can to try to ignore their presence. Next year when Trump wins the election because you once again forced establishment democrats you'll sit back and wonder why. 2016 all over again.

    “A sick care system” that’s brilliant!

    It’s like we need people to be sick in-order to make bank money.

    We need people to be out of order in order to make gold … something or other.

    Give Andrew Yang more good coverage! Your corporate democrat bias is showing Stephen. Yang is the only one actually staying out of the drama show that is the democratic debate.

    To beat Trump, these presidential candidate should consolidate as one vs Trump. If they win then continue the primary for the dem presidency. Either of them as long nobody talk about a job creation Americans wanted to hear.

    IMPORTANT: If you want to vote Yang in 2020, you NEED to vote for him in the democratic primaries. That's the only way he's going to get on the ticket.

    In some states that even means registering as a democrat in order to participate. If you don't identify as dem, hopefully you'll be ok with it since it's a means to an end and you can always change later. Look up the rules in your state so you don't miss any deadlines! Also make sure that you're registered to vote!!

    We all know Trump is gonna win again. ( I do NOT want that.)
    But the Democrats are all out of their freakin' minds.
    Remember, it's Middle America that voted Trump in, and it'll happen again.
    January 20th, 2025 is going to be a glorious day.

    why didnt he talk about the attack on Kamala by Tulsi and her own record of putting people in jail for marijuana possesion and then laughing about smoking weed in radio interview….i think that stuff was very powerful and it showed that biden isnt the only one with bad decisions in the past….And Kamala was visibly shook and upset by that attack….i was like DAMN!!!! did Tulsi just did that

    the opposite of trump is:
    a black hispanic female vetran who grew up poor enough not to be able to afford being ignorant; is educated, moral, has an asian immigrant wife, with 3 adopted kids, and owns a dog (so Cortez fused with mayor Pete).

    I envy Americans for having such a realistic n forward thinker with solutions. Hey people, vote for him and his ideas can spread worldwide not just in America. He got me thinking of automation and gees what’s going be when my children grows up? His worries are real not only in America but globally. Instead of campaigning statewide,he should campaigning WORLDWIDE!
