  1. EXCLUSIVE! Someone named Isleeeee was running for…wait a minute…President? Thanks Rachel, we thought that was just a(nother) conspiracy theory…like russia russia russia

  2. Washington state is experiencing over logging, fishing, extraction of resources, polluting agriculture, micro-brews and marijuana industries, failing roads, bad schools, bad air quality and massive inflation and rising housing costs. Inslee knows this and knows he's a hypocrite so he's heading back to WA to gather his eggs. Do something for WA Inslee. Alot of ppl are suffering as well as our environment. C'mon dude, wake tf up and really help our forests and waterways.

  3. Good ol' traitor to his state Jay Inslee – superdelage for Hillary despite the overwhelming support for Bernie in 2016. Hillary couldn't even fill a little igh school gym in Washington. If you ever wonder why people in his own state didn't support him, it's because we view him as a traitor.

  4. This sucks, he was easily the best candidate. Everyone else running has a horrible personality that independents might reject. He was a governor, not a weak member of Congress or supporting open boarders.

  5. You're a good dude. Maybe in 2028 after President Warren or President Sanders finishes their term you should give it another shot. We need you in a governor's seat right now!

  6. Thanks for the fight on climate change !!! You candidacy was worth it sir !!! Should lead the EPA in the next Democratic party administration

  7. Thanks Jay. Come back to Washington State and clean up that trash can abortion you have caused here. They didn't let you wreck Washington DC…but you can come back and continue the destruction of your state. If, by chance, you SHOW UP ONCE IN AWHILE!

  8. So sad to see him go and wished the media had given him more attention. I have been split between Jay and Bernie during these debates but I know Jay will continue his efforts for us regardless. Thank you Governor for be a champion in fighting for Climate Crisis action!

  9. That’s too bad about Governor Inslee. But with the State of the United States these days, I can’t see how he could have made it to the Great Debates, let alone the Voting Stage. Sad State that America is in…..

  10. When did corporate news MSNBC and in part CNN decide to advocate Joe “Hillary” Biden for president? I’m sick and disgusted with the constant PR and apology tour campaign pushed on every morning show for Biden. Corporate media propaganda pushed to millions of TV viewers while attacking Bernie Sanders as “makes my skin crawl”, or too old. The truth is only being heard by just a few thousand on sites like u-tube by independent voices. Please contribute to the progressive democratic movement and tell your friends it's time for governmental change. Bernie 2020.

  11. To deal with climate the "Climate Czar" , the EPA leader, should have expanded resources and powers. The threat to our world is real

  12. Do you believe the planet was created with the democrats, there were worse droughts, volcanos, hurricane long before the 1900s. But you’re all whites on stage. Muslims are trouble whichever country they’re in. No different in the US.

  13. Jay Inslee is a true American patriot and statesman. America can use him at any level. I was delighted to hear Joy's son's response regarding climate change and the Amazon fires. The Republican response of hiding their heads in the sand will only accomplish a "cooked" Republican.

  14. Jay Inslee was a little less lunatic than the rest of the Dem clown show. This made him bite the dust so early.

  16. Climat change if it’s that bad, STOP buying from China and India, by doing so your speech supports China and India creating climate change

  17. President 1% comes from a world where if there is flood in the kitchen call the plumber, he isn't capable of any beyond the Yellow Pages

  18. CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL. WE HAVE THE WEATHER WEAPONS TO PROVE IT. Those of us who are old enough to know what a cloud is supposed to look like have a greater appreciation of CIA DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN'S ADMISSION OF CHEMTRAILS

    " STRATEGIC ATMOSPHERIC INJECTION" (SAI) which is a sub category of INJECTION TECHNOLOGY (IT). prayorbeprey.com

  19. Please please help with the Amazon and that horrible President who is laughing at these fires! The Amazon is 20% of the world's fresh air!!

  20. I love Maddow and I don’t specifically blame her for the debate questions (the DNC is largely to blame), but come on. Of course there wasn’t enough focus on climate change during the first (and second) debate. There were like three times it came up. It is the single biggest threat to the world!

  21. While I appreciate Inslee's focus on climate change, I still cast a wary eye his way after throwing shade at Bernie Sanders during the WA primary in 2016. Washington (my state) overwhelmingly went for Bernie and Inslee decided he would fall far out of step with his own constituents and deliberately disrespect Senator Sanders on national television. We don't forget, Jay, but throwing your support behind Bernie now would go a long way in repairing the damage that was done. He is easily the strongest candidate on climate change, so it should be a no-brainer. #Bernie2020

  22. I am very proud to be a Washington State supporter of Jay Inslee. It would be hard to let him go, but the planet needs him.

  23. We are a VERY lucky state to have a class act like Jay Inslee as our Governor. I feel for other states that, through actions of their governor, contribute to the downward path of these united states.

  24. He is my Governor, and he listens to the concerns of the people and actually takes action and does get things done and big things at that. He has been around for a long time. A solid guy! Don't always agree with him but sure do respect him.

  25. I'm not sure some guy I had never heard of exiting a race I didn't know he was in is news. But ok. Good on him for his strong stance on climate change. Hopefully he'll endorse someone who will pick up that as a large plank in their own platform.

  26. thank you for leaving the clown car of dnc candidates.Now if you would only shut your piehole about phiny and fake climate change,lmao The science is settled and there's no crisis Caseclosed

  27. I dare you to address #walkaway… the death of liberals and the democratic party. It grows daily… a new moderate party grows. Talk about that….

  28. Sorry to hear about Jay INslee's dropping out. BUt if you don't have the #s….try another way to make a difference. Of course he's possible VP…probable cabinet member…can help shore up EPA….seek to push through legislation to protect the environment. I did a small $ donation to his campaign…helped move him into the 2nd round.

  29. Bernie kicked down the Plan last night!! He is the one who will truly fight tooth and nail against wealthy interests to actually implement it. If you mean what you say Governor Inslee come with the endorsement. Mean what you say sir.

  30. While he definitely would've made a good president, this was the right call.
    Just a shame he didn't get more of a spotlight before making it. There are many other candidates who should've bailed out long before he did.

  31. Jay is a good governor, and I had him on my list as a backup plan, but he is right he is long way from being the front runner. I live in Washington and I am happy to report that Jay Inslee is a good governor, but he is a good governor among good governors. Washington has been blessed to have a continuous string of good administration from Gary Locke, to Christine Gregoire, and now Jay.
    The correct answer to what is the greatest threat to America is inequity and racially based disunity. Trump may be spreading gasoline on the fire, but the fire has always been there, and it has hidden itself in the Republican Party, the NRA, the birther movement, the Tea Party, they are all just fronts for hate. It is now readily apparent that many of the laws in our country are overly draconian and used as tools of oppression, overturning these laws should be our highest priority.

  32. Good job, Jay! You didn't 'take the bait' and PREMATURELY throw red meat into this increasingly FOX-like line of questioning on the other networks – based on creating drama – by endorsing or vilifying someone on your team. Rachel, you're smarter than this. Please rise above the advertisers' desire to act like Faux-News does. Stick with the issues and intelligent policies. Wait until next Spring to ask such questions.

  33. We have people in Canada and the USA who are working for low wages. They are trying to support a family and living from paycheck to paycheck. How can these families afford the burden of a carbon tax attached to their yearly taxes.

  36. To the pastor of newyark the Bible tell us to feed those in need or hungry, I say it. Is of a moral standard to help so many people but it time to stand up put those corrupt positions out of office
    That the only way to solve the country problem. The love of. Money is the. Rut of evil.

  37. The pastor and all of the churches newkyard is a good thing but the Bible says feed a man a fish and he will go hungry but to teach him to fish and he will never be hungry. What is the root of the problem the pipes and the instrutal of the city. Where is the government and Trump.

  38. Loser from day one… Sad that NOW America can't share the joy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggVd4zRJUq0&feature=youtu.be

  39. I live in Olympia Washington. I can literally see the capital building from my kitchen window. Governor Inslee needs to bring his butt back home and take care of business right here!! We are being overwhelmed with a homeless problem at the moment. It's effecting small businesses down town and people are tired of the garbage, tent city's and aggressive pan handlers….he needs clean up his own back yard first….

  40. WE ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO MITIGATE THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE! ALL HANDS ON DECK! WE ARE RISKING AN ECOLOGICAL JENGA COLLAPSE AND MASS EXTINCTION!

  41. Thank you Governor Inslee! We need you in government so stay strong and hold out for a cabinet appointment that would make us all safer!

  42. It's unfortunate that Inslee didn't get more coverage. He's a good governor and as left wing as they get. He has the actual experience to be a good POTUS and his stands on the issues is pretty much the right one.

    But of course the bros won't consider anyone but their saint and are excruciatingly vocal about it and the rest of the candidates supporters have to fight against that to get the word out. Inslee was simply fighting from too far behind in such a crowded field considering the conditions.

  43. How in the world do Democrats think they stand a chance in 2020 with the Elan Omar the face of the Democratic Party?… Living with her brother and her husband and married to her brother and her husband at the same time… Omar isn't even her real name it is a name she used to get into this country fraudulently… Repeatedly anti-semitic hating on Jews… Isn't that the same thing Hitler did?… Openly supports terrorists and Al-Qaeda… Is this really what Democrats are all about now? 🇺🇸

  44. ..easy now, 'too big a field of candidates'- complaints are not thought trough when 4-5 candidates are beating him hands-down. a big group softens individual blows as well and doesn't alienate anyone contrary to what a single candidacy typically does ….

  45. Yeah, everybody wants to see Inslee at the EPA. So does he. This was his application for a position in the next administration, and he knew it. He not popular enough here in Washington to guarantee that he'd even carry his home state, let alone win a national election. He had a chance to use Washington taxpayer money to go on his US tour, and he took advantage of it
    Now he's going to come back here and run for reelection as Governor, because we're a good 2nd option for him, and if a Democrat wins in 2020 and offers him a job he'll be out of here in a heartbeat.
    Just go write your book or something. Don't waste our time trying to tell us how much you care about Washingtonians

  46. you are Finished inslee do not come back to wa State We have a Republican sheriff that will run our state Your Out he is in Leave our State Jay boy

  47. I hope that all of the current Democratic hopefuls who fall short in their presidential aspirations seek Senate seats or other positions of authority.

  48. The current heads of the EPA and Interior Department are oil industry lobbyists. That's as swampy as it gets and things have to change if the country is to survive as something more than a degraded Hellhole ruled by a small cadre of fabulously wealthy swine.

  49. More need to drop out and follow suit , some good people in the race that can’t win but would be good in the cabinet, maybe they should form a cabinet now and work behind a leader !

  50. Withdraws from race, but leaves behind all his work he's done in the meantime for the next torchbearer to take up. THAT is open source at its absolute finest. Well done, sir.

  51. I was believing it til he used a Florida swamp fire as an example of climate change. The fire department starts controlled burns if they don’t happen naturally from lightning, they are necessary for maximum growth potential. Dammit I wanted to trust him but now I can’t because he has proven himself to be either a liar, ignorant or misinformed

  52. It's a shame that some of the other more moderate candidates are still in the race while this man drops out. He has so much more conviction than any of those corporate dems that the DNC is shoving down our throats. He'd be great in a cabinet position. Head of the EPA would be great.

  53. This nutjob is single handedly causing the State of Washington to want to split into two separate States! The shithole corridor once known as Puget Sound needs a complete flushing!!
