  1. NYPD New York ~ Duty officials were celebrating for an event an this a party for all farmers, police forces, Taxi-cabs,
    and all color, religions and all take this treasonous snake Donnie "crime" Trump and book him for STATING THE LAW ~ ūüöĹūüŹĆÔłŹ‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹ ~ ‚ėĚūü§£

  2. Biden is TOO obligated to corporate America. His supporters aren't among the two, three dollar donations. He has already promised not to make drastic changes at an earlier campaign rally.

  3. 40 years in politics? That's nearly 2 generations. Pass the torch Biden, you have passed your expiry date.

  4. Joe Biden's entire political career is a distortion of his record, that distortion is his only actual useful attribute. The notion that Biden is worried about distortions of his record is hilarious. Especially since he wields his reputation as a weapon, and distortion of his image as a defense. Joe Biden is NOT the "safe choice", I think if you actually knew the person, you may change your mind. Any impression that Biden is a reasonable candidate, is just guessing, and really should not say that on the news. Just think of all the naive people who are going to be harmed when they find out that is not the case.

  5. B OOKER DIDN'T PUT A WHOLE POPULATION OF PEOPLE OF COLOR IN PRISON TO EXTERMINATE A CULTURE LIKE BIDEN AND BERNIE!! DISINGENUOUS IS BIDEN!! TRUMP = BIDEN. PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE NOT TREADING RACIST!! GET THAT OUT OF YOUR HEAD!!  IT NEVER WAS A ATTACK IT WAS THE TRUTH!!

  6. YOU NEWS PEOPLE ARE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY PROMOTING BIDEN THE RACIST!! WE WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH BIDEN OR KILLARY!! BIDEN IS TRUMP!!

  7. What Happened to the 16 billion in Federal aid dollars given to Baltimore in 2018?? Where did the money go?? Why are MSNBCannibals not reporting on this?

  8. Joe Biden IS UNELECTABLE!
    It's not JUST about the 1994 Crime Bill – it's that the argument Trump and the Russians put forth against Hillary Clinton back then and Joe Biden now WAS THE TRUTH!
    Bill Clinton and Joe Biden ARE responsible for the US mass incarceration AND the prisoner slave labor issue AND the unbelievable growth of private prisons! … and MOST OF THE VICTIMS OF OF THAT POLICY WERE BLACK MEN!
    Joe Biden is unelectable and will lose to Trump!
    Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or God Knows ANY DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE BESIDES JOE F**KING BIDEN!!!! in 2020.

  9. The Affordable Care Act is a warmed over moderate Republican health care plan. For Biden to brag about passing it without needing one republican vote, the first question that comes to mind is if you had that kind of majority why didn't you fight for a better bill??

  10. Even though Trump is an amoral, vile, despicable CON-MAN who LOVES DICTATORS & HATES America’s HEROS, & who has OPENLY AND BRAZENLY broken many rules/laws, TRUMP has 90% of Republicans supporting him, including the Republican Congress and the MAJORITY of the Supreme Court. Republicans have been outsmarting Dems for a very long time because they are 100% RUTHLESS and only care about WINNING! The Dems priority is gender-correct pronouns and protecting ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS (I mean undocumented non-citizens who have entered the USA through no fault of their own).

  11. I support Biden ….we need to get back to sanity before we can accomplish any substantial things ….Biden will attract independents,moderate republicans and middle road democrats….Biden 2020

  12. Ignoring the St Petersblurb BOTS and Warrenite-Bernieite Trolls below lets get this straight, Joe Biden is no racist and he is no sexist. There is surprisingly little mud that sticks to JB despite a half century in elected office. He's a target of the progressive and ultra progressive wings of the party who want Warren or Bernie so bad they can taste it. Both are out progressiving each other with grander and grander policies that grow more expansive each time out. Now Dental and Eyeglasses are part of the public plan Bernie? Canada has had single payer health care for 50 years and THEY DONT INCLUDE THOSE OPTIONS IN THEIR PLANS. Unless all the cards fall the Dems way in Nov 2020 and the Senate turns blue again, how are you going to pass legislation this grand with "divided government" ? Magical thinking abounds on the far left. My take is that this is an election similar to 1972 when the Democratic Party defeated the Democratic Party and lost an election they could have won. George McGovern's place is taken now by Bernie and Warren and others who are pushing unworkable policies and ignoring the basic emotional nature of presidential politics. Mom and Pop on Mainstreet LIKE Biden, he is well known to them, he is trusted by them and they WILL elect him if he gets the nomination. In 1972 Humphrey would have beaten Nixon HAD HE WON THE NOMINATION. In 2020 your best and maybe only shot at beating Trump (electoral college advantage and all) is Biden. The polls consistently show this and its important to remember that Biden is very strong in the Rust Belt which was Trumps firewall. America would have been a better place with Humphrey as President in 72 rather than Nixon and America will be a MUCH BETTER PLACE  when Biden beats President Trump in 2020.

  13. Ignoring the BOTs and trolls calling Joe a racist, sexist, corporate flunky etc lets engage in a little history lesson. Pretend we are in 1972 and instead of George McGovern we ran , Hubert Humphrey for President. Humphrey with the same career track as Biden, first a long serving member of the Senate and then VP under Johnson. The young folk hated him because of his ties to Johnson's war. Despite this he was well liked and understood by mainstreet USA, he had a lock on the labor vote and did better than any candidate with Black voters. BUT McGovern got the nod and McGovern's campaign quickly degenerated into a self made disaster. nothing like a compassionate progressive. He was an annoying speaker, an inept campaigner and the more people knew about George the less they liked him. His policies scared away moderates and centrists and the young folk never turned out to vote in great enough numbers to make a difference. He lost to Nixon 49 states to 1. My take is that Humphrey would have won that race. Nixon was deeply unpopular and vulnerable on a number of fronts. Humphrey was well known, well liked and trusted by mainstreet America. The folks that disliked him the most and ended up fatally undermining his presidential run were members of the Democratic party's progressive wing. So substitute Biden for Humphrey and consider all the others, especially the hardcore progressives like Warren and Bernie as heirs to McGovern. So dear friends ask yourself, who would have been better for America in 72? Nixon or Humphrey?  Now ask yourself who would be better for America in 2020? Trump or Biden? That really is your only choice. None of the other candidates poll as well as Joe does head to head with Trump ESPECIALLY IN THE RUST BELT, and that is is HUGE strategically. This election so far has produced a ton of noise about policy but presidential elections are won based on emotional not rational decision making by voters. Whatever  emotional connection voters feel to the candidates matters. Do they like him, trust him, understand him. That connection exists right now with Biden and the voters. Don't ignore it and don't waste it.
