Last night was yet another debate among 2020 Democratic hopefuls.
Americans had to suffer as these liberal elitists argued with each other over every issue imaginable. Some candidates attacked another over age. One made a bizarre promise to 10 Americans. But one thing was clear after the dust settled: Democrats are in bad shape.
I know you probably didn’t watch last night’s debates. I mean, there are so many other more important things you can do on a Thursday night. Like getting your teeth drilled. But ABC News hosted the third debates among rich, left-wing liberal elitists who think they know better than you about everything.
The event was supposed to give Democrats a chance to discuss important issues and show the country why they are better than President Trump. Instead, the party appeared childish as greedy candidates fought for attention.
Long-simmering policy disputes between Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and a slew of other candidates exploded into the open during Thursday night’s Democratic primary debate, as the candidates — often with raised voices — laid bare their fundamental disagreements on “Medicare-for-all,” immigration and more.

At one point Mayor Pete tried to bring unity to the group, only to be torched by Julian Castro. It was like a high school brawl. Anyone that opened themselves up got punched by their rivals.
It really shows you how the Democrats are not working together on anything. Perhaps they were never united. That shouldn’t be a surprise. A party that exploits identity politics and social justice doesn’t know the meaning of working together. To many Democrats, public office is a get-rich-and-famous-quick scheme.
Naturally, trying to unite to oust a sitting president is impossible.
At one point, Andrew Yang made a weird promise to 10 random families.
“I’m going to do something unprecedented tonight,” Yang said in his opening statement. “My campaign will now give a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to 10 American families – someone watching this at home right now. If you believe that you can solve your own problems better than any politician go to Yang2020.com and tell us how $1,000 a month will do just that.” [Source: Fox News]
Uh… what? What does that have to do with debating the issues? And what about the 100 million other American families?
Joe Biden once again leaned on his time in Barack Obama’s administration. We know, Joe, you were vice president. Once upon a time, that would have made you a shoo-in. Maybe you should have run in 2016. Trying to milk you connection with Obama isn’t working. If that’s all you got, perhaps you should just throw in the towel now.
Castro pounced on Biden’s words, going as far as criticizing his age.
“I’m fulfilling the legacy of Barack Obama, and you’re not,” Castro said… “You just said two minutes ago they would have to buy in. Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?” Castro asked. Some commentators said Castro’s jab was an improper, thinly veiled reference to Biden’s age. [Source: Fox News]
Pretty ugly stuff. Never did it seem that the candidates got along or would want to work together. Everyone was out for him or herself, just looking for that moment to outshine the rest. You have to keep in mind that these are all members of the same party. And they’re digging into each other like it’s a street brawl.
(Noticeably not discussed was Trump’s soaring economy and House Democrats’ pathetic impeachment attempts. Touchy subjects, Democrats?)
These candidates don’t seem to respect their own colleagues or care about how bad this makes them look to Americans. They are just thirsty for the nom—no matter the cost.
Makes you wonder what kind of leaders they’ve been—or will be. None of them deserve to be president.
