The First Democratic Presidential Primary Debate: A Closer Look


-10 — count ’em —
10 Democratic candidates squared off tonight
in the first debate of the presidential campaign. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look. ♪♪
[ Cheers and applause ] Donald Trump is
constitutionally incapable of sharing the spotlight
with anyone, and so as 10 Democrats
prepared to take the stage for their first
primary debate tonight, he went to something called
the Faith and Freedom Conference to gurgle up a bunch of
old-man nonsense. -We’re saying
“merry Christmas” again. Did you notice? Remember? [ Cheers and applause ]
Remember? I usually save that for
November, December, but I was just thinking… They were all taking it down off
the department stores, everything. You’d see a big red —
They’d say, “Happy holidays,” no “merry Christmas.” They’re saying
“merry Christmas” again. It’s very interesting. “Our president may not be
the best at the Bible. He may not have read it
2,000 times. But he’s the best for us.” My wife watched.
I said, “You have to see this. It’s great invention
It’s called TiVo,” okay? I don’t want to be advertising,
but, you know, it’s, like,
better than television, ’cause television, you
never see it. With TiVo, you play it back.
I played it back. -Oh, my God!
Get me off this cruise ship! Is this a presidential speech
or bingo night? This guy shouldn’t be standing
behind a presidential seal. He should be wandering down
the hallway of a group home with a nurse chasing
after him, screaming, “Donald, your gown is
on backwards.” I’m sorry.
[ Cheers and applause ] You’ve just heard about TiVo? Trump’s brain is so
permanently stuck in 1999. “Have you heard this new food
they just came out with? It’s called Go-Gurt. It’s a game changer.” Trump was probably more off
kilter than usual today with the Democratic
debate looming and the news that
Robert Mueller’s agreed to testify in public before
Congress next month, and it clearly… [ Cheers and applause ] …clearly got in Trump’s head,
because he called up Fox Business News to
and ramble about Mueller and accuse him of
a totally made-up crime. Trump was referring to unearthed
text messages between two FBI agents
who were having an affair, or at least I think that’s what
he was referring to. -Robert Mueller —
they worked for him, and the two lovers were together and they had
texts back and forth. -Well, how come
we haven’t seen it all? -You know why? Because Mueller
terminated them illegally. He terminated the e-mails. He terminated all of the stuff
between Strzok and Page. You know, they —
You’ve never — Robert Mueller terminated
their text messages together. He would — He terminated them.
They’re gone. And that’s illegal. -Deleted! The word you’re looking for
is “deleted.” My God, man,
go back to watching TiVo. And now you’re accusing
Robert Mueller of a crime? Look at this guy. I doubt he’s ever jaywalked
in his life. Robert Mueller gives
speeding tickets by chasing after cars on foot. And no matter what you think of
the Democrats, this is why it was refreshing to
see sane human beings speaking in coherent sentences
about actual policies on national television
for a change. Now, this was just
the first of two debates, with 10 more candidates
scheduled to debate on Thursday. In fact, there are now
a total of 24 Democrats
running for president. Look at how many people
are on that screen. There are so many people,
you didn’t even notice that one of them is Guy Fieri. And…
[ Cheers and applause ] And he’s definitely more
qualified than Donald Trump, because, need I remind you,
he’s the mayor of Flavortown. Great bowling alleys,
terrible schools. Of course…
[ Laughter ] We’ll just —
We’ll cut out that. Cut out the Flavortown joke
I fought for all day. Live?! Of course, with 10 people
on the stage, the candidates knew it
would be tough to stand out, which is why they were all
preparing in different ways to make their case as concise
and effective as possible. -Senator Elizabeth Warren
and her 2020 Democratic rivals are very busy right now,
because they’re prepping for the first pair of
Democratic debates. Warren has focussed on boiling
down her positions, her policy positions, to try to
fit the time constraints. Senator Amy Klobuchar has spent
time watching the 2016 debates to see how President Trump
and his GOP rivals stood out in that crowded field. -Wait. You’re studying Trump’s
debate performances to see how he stood out? Which ones did you watch? Did you study the tape of that
time Trump and Ben Carson missed their cues
and got stuck in the hallway leading to the debate stage? ‘Cause that is a case
where he stood out literally. And it really is amazing that
out of everyone on the stage, the two guys who ended up
in the federal government are the ones who turned
a presidential debate into an escape room. “Help us, clue master.
We need a hint.” Seriously, what lessons
can you learn from Trump’s
debate performances? “Okay, just remember,
yell as loud as you can, limit your vocabulary
to four words, and, if you get lost,
just remember to act natural and stare directly into
the camera. like you’re having
your portrait drawn.” [ Cheers and applause ] Now, before the debate,
the candidates also showed up to check out the debate stage,
like Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan, who got caught sporting
a very casual look. -2020 contender Tim Ryan is on
the debate stage right now, doing his walk-through. That’s going to be happening
through the course of the day. We do have a presidential
candidate right with us. There’s Tim Ryan
wearing his cap backward. -“Uh… Hey, guys, there aren’t cameras
here now, right?” Did you get confused and think this was your
office softball game? You don’t look like a candidate. You look like you should be
pounding some Sam Adams tall-boys
at a Red Sox game. Now, say what you will
about the Democrats. Most of them seemed to enjoy
talking about policies, and the campaign so far has been
incredibly substantive. Senator Kamala Harris has a plan for cash payments to
middle-class household. Senator Bernie Sanders
rolled out a plan to cancel all student debt. And Senator Elizabeth Warren
was so excited to discuss her plans to tax
the wealthy at a town hall that she could
hardly contain herself. -Thank you, Senator Warren,
for being here. How the do you plan to make sure the extremely rich pay
their fair taxes? -Whoa! -Whoa! Taxes! That question was
Elizabeth Warren’s Mardi Gras. Asking Warren that question
is like walking up to Chris Cuomo
at a party and going, “Hey, you know anything
about CrossFit?” And that excitement
for talking about policy seems to have caught on, because
while the polls have stayed mostly flat so far,
Warren’s stock has been rising, and that’s caught
the attention of both the Democratic front-runner,
Joe Biden, and President Trump. -New polling shows Warren’s
economic message is resonating with voters. In the latest NBC News/”Wall
Street Journal” poll, 26% of Democratic primary voters
say they’re enthusiastic about her candidacy. That’s a 6-point bump
from last month. It might explain why Biden’s
team is also reportedly getting a little worried
about her rise. And President Trump’s campaign
is zeroing in on the threat that she could pose. -Oh, come on.
Donald Trump doesn’t zero in. If anything, he zeros out. And I especially can’t imagine
him zeroing in on Elizabeth Warren. For one thing, Warren literally
did an interview where she was running to catch
a train at Penn Station. Can you imagine if Trump was
late for a train? Forget answering questions. Mike Pence would have to carry
him on his back like a tired 4-year-old. So, with Warren
the obvious standout coming into this debate,
the other candidates were looking for ways to shine, and former Texas Congressman
Beto O’Rourke settled on a strategy of going
bilingual right out of the gate. -This economy
has got to work for everyone, and, right now,
we know that it isn’t. And it’s going to take
all of us coming together to make sure that it does. [ Speaking Spanish ] -I mean, I knew he was going to
bust out his Spanish. I just didn’t know
it would be that quickly. Remember, Beto, you only
have one bullet, so don’t fire until you see the
whites of their — Bang! Also, check out
Cory Booker’s face when it cuts to him during
Beto’s answer. -[ Speaking Spanish ] -Now, you might think that’s
a face of a guy thinking, “I can’t believe you’re
pandering by speaking Spanish,” but it’s actually the face of
a guy thinking, “Oh, man! I was gonna do that.” -[ Speaking Spanish ] -Not only do I applaud them
speaking Spanish, you just know everyone in
tomorrow’s debate who doesn’t speak Spanish is going to spend
the whole day cramming. “I think all Americans
want answered — the question they
want answered is, ‘¿Donde esta mi gato?'” [ Cheers and applause ] Now, Beto has been
struggling in the polls, despite the national fame
he gained from his Senate campaign
against Ted Cruz, but he was still head
and shoulder above some rivals in name and face recognition,
like, um…this guy. -Congressman Delaney,
do you agree? -I think we need do real things
to help American workers and the American people. -Okay, quick question —
who are you? You look like you were
supposed to be in a lawn-care commercial
during the break, but they just accidentally
let you stay. And then there was Tim Ryan,
the Ohio congressman, who seemed maybe
slightly surprised that he got a question. -Congressman Ryan,
President Trump — and you just referred to him —
promised that manufacturing jobs
were all coming back to places like your home state of Ohio. Can you make that same promise? -Yes, I believe you can. -Tim Ryan always looks like
his dog just talked. “Rusty, did you just say,
‘Good morning’?” Then the debate moderators
gave the candidates a chance to
differentiate themselves with a key policy question — who would abolish
private health insurance? And only a few
raised their hands. -Who here would abolish their
private health insurance in favor of
a government-run plan? Just a show of hands
to start off with. -Not only did Warren
raise her hand, but check out New York City
mayor Bill de Blasio. He’s got to be so happy
he raised his hand when Warren did. It’s like when
you’re taking the SATs and you peek at
the valedictorian’s test and make sure she had
the same answer. And de Blasio clearly said
it’s an opportunity to make a name for himself
on the healthcare issue, because after Beto
answered the question, de Blasio jumped in
and went after him. -Would you replace
private insurance? -No. I think the choice is
fundamental to — -Wait, wait. Congressman O’Rourke,
private insurance is not working for ten of
millions of Americans. When you talk about the co-pays,
the deductibles, the premiums,
the out-of-pocket expenses, it’s not working. -That’s right, so for those for
whom it is not working, they can choose Medicare. -Congressman, you’ve got to
start by acknowledging the system is
not working for people. -Look at those two. They look like stockbrokers who
got too drunk at happy hour. It’s so weird to watch
two guys get into it who are both polling
in single digits. It’s like watching the
New York Jets play guys who got cut from
the New York Jets. De Blasio was so eager to get
a word in that, at one point, as they were cutting to
commercial, he started yelling over
the moderators. -Put the American people first.
-Hey, but wait a minute. -All right, we are out of time. We’re up against a hard break — -Neither Democrats, nor
Republicans have been serious — -Mayor de Blasio,
we’ll have more. The commercial is coming. -Oh, man, that’s so New York. It’s like when you’re trying
to talk to someone as the subway doors are closing. “Hey, what did you call me?!
What did you say, pal?!” Of course,
I’m referring to a time when the subway doors
in this city closed. So, it was a very substantive
issue-oriented debate. And after about an hour full of
complex policy questions about everything
from immigration to gun control to healthcare,
the president decided to weigh in with his own
contribution to the debate, tweeting, “Boring.” Oh, I’m sorry. Are you not entertained,
Caligula? I’d say we should send you out
there to spice things up, but you’d probably just get
stuck in the hallway. “This escape room is boring.” Also, don’t you realize that
most Americans are dying for things
to be boring for a while? I fantasize about the day
I turn on CNN and there’s a banner that says,
“No breaking news.” Things were also a little weird
when the debate switched over to the second hour for moderators Rachel Maddow
and Chuck Todd, who decided to start out with
some friendly banter. -Now, the candidates will have
60 seconds to answer, 30 seconds for a follow-up,
if necessary. And we will be ruthless,
if necessary. -Yeah, we can do that.
-Mm-hmm. -By the way, hi, Rachel.
-Hi, Chuck. -How you doing?
-Good. -Hey, guys,
we don’t need the hellos. We know you know each other. The candidates each get like
9 seconds to speak, and you’re chatting it up
like old college friends who ran into each other
at Fuddruckers. It’s like they
were waiting for somebody to come by and take their order. But then once they got
the hellos out of the way, they were ready to go
with a smooth transition in the next portion
of the debate. -Many people are calling for
a restoration of an assault-weapons ban,
but even if implemented, there will still be
hundreds of millions of guns in this country. Should there be a role for the
federal government — -I think the other mics are on.
-Oh, everybody’s mics are on. I think we have a —
I heard that, too. That’s okay. I think we had a little
mic issue in the back. -Control room, we’ve got — -I think we heard — Yeah,
we have the audience audio. -What’s happening? -We are hearing
our colleagues’s audio. If the control room
can turn off the mics. -There’s voices behind us. -Yeah, if the control room
can turn off the mics of our previous
moderators, we will — -I think it’s the
prior moderators. -You know,
we’ve prepared for everything. We did not prepare for this. -We are going to take
a quick break. We’re gonna get
this technical situation fixed. We will be right back. -Maybe you guys should have
spent more time checking the audio and less time
saying hello to each other. I’m surprised Warren
didn’t bust out a tool kit. “I can fix it.” And, of course, our
TV-game-show-host president, who has nothing to say about
policy, had plenty to say about the technical glitch,
tweeting, “NBC News and MSNBC should be ashamed of themselves
for having such a horrible
technical breakdown in the middle of the debate. Truly unprofessional
and only worthy of a fake-news organization
which they are.” Boring! Hey, man, I wouldn’t be tweeting
about technical glitches. You think TiVo is
new technology. “NBC needs better
audio equipment. They should have used a Zune.” Although, you know
he was TiVo’ing that moment multiple times. “Melania, get in here and watch sleepy Chuck Todd
get interrupted.” Bloop-bloop. But a big question underlying
all these policy debates is this — how will you get
your agenda passed if there’s a
Republican Congress? The moderators asked Warren
if she had any ideas for dealing with that,
and her answer was unequivocal. -Do you have a plan to deal with
with Mitch McConnell? -I do.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Damn! If Mitch McConnell were capable
of feeling human emotion, he’d be terrified right now. That’s the moment everyone
else wondered, “Maybe I should just go.” That was like when the matriarch
of a Southern dynasty stands up at
the dinner table and says, “I’ve made a decision.” When Warren said that,
Booker’s face got permanently stuck like that, and Tim Ryan’s hat
got flew back onto his head. Everyone was eager to
get a word in, like Washington governor
Jay Inslee, who’s running a campaign focused
primarily on climate change. He tried to get some attention
from the moderators and then made it kind of weird. -Thank you, Senator Booker.
Rachel’s got the next question. -We are going to make —
We are going — Hold on. Governor, you’re gonna be happy
with where we go. Governor Inslee,
this next question is to you. You got me?
-Rachel — -You got me? -Oh, my God.
What does that mean? “I’m keeping an eye on her”? He’s like the corny dad
at the party who wants to make sure
everyone’s had enough to drink. “Chad, I’m onto you, buddy. When that marg’s empty,
I’m getting you a refill, Chad.” Ultimately, tonight’s debate
showed us that a substantive campaign focused
on issues people care about, rather than incoherent rambling
about Christmas or terminating e-mails
is possible, but it also proved once again that there’s
a reason “Jeopardy!” has three contestants
and not 10. “Alex, Alex, call on me! I have a Final Jeopardy!
answer.” And if you missed
tonight’s debate, don’t worry — the president has
a high-tech solution for how you can watch it. -“It’s great invention
It’s called TiVo.” -This has been “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ]

  1. So you can lie, cheat, steal and cheat on your wife with pornstars and hookers but as long as you say Merry Christmas, you're a great Christian. Ugh our country is in trouble.

  2. dear america…..you honestly think one of these knuckleheads can go up against china..north korea….the world may hate our president but they respect him and his smart buisness ways and his strong personality….move to france or veneszuela and see how those socialist states are working out…..idiots!!!!

  3. I love Seth, but come on man, clearly Trump is tool bag, but you’re almost worse by pretending that all Americans have the same information and news and network connection. Lots of towns of 4K or les don’t have 4K television but bet on satellite television…. if they have enough money to own a bar, because they’re too worried about their water bill. There’s a difference between being right and getting to right by stepping on peoples heads.

  4. Trump's tweet about the technical glitch was the only funny thing in this monologue. No offense, Seth, but you gotta up your game if Trump is more entertaining than you.

  5. Disgusting political agenda, using hypnosis techniques, to try and push Warren (ELITE'S CANDIDATE) Besides being a NEW WORLD ORDER SCHILL, she has no substance or intelligence and she seems like she's going senile. How could he make all those jokes about how competent she is( which was clearly BS). What was also clear is they are really are pushing Warren, but it's much Ado about nothing. The clear winner of the debate(Tulsi Gabbard) wasn't even named, although he did show her being cutoff by moderators. TULSI GABBARD is a 16 year soldier Veteran and she has served in Congress in Hawaii and held other public positions. She supported Bernie Sanders last election but with military tensions growing she's the best candidate.. She's the only one who is clearly against the war with Iran. It's easy for guys like Trump or any of the other democratic candidates to be pro- war, because they have never served in one and don't realize how bad it is. She understands. Elizabeth Warren actually looked like she has aluminium toxicity or what is jokingly called "Old timer's" disease, but it's not funny in president, remember Reagan?

  6. Correction: Mueller lied the US Congress into an illegal war on Iraq. Just a bit worse than "jay-walking", don't ya think?

  7. Funny stuff about Beto, Booker, Warren, the debate setup, NBC, and Trump…..yet nothing about Tulsi??

  8. I've been to 12 senate hearings. Elizabeth Warren showed up to 10 of them. She's always read up on the subject, asks insightful questions, and manages the other coots in the room with intelligence and respect. Frankly she is what this country needs.

  10. The current extreme left in America is a manifestation of communism in the west. This is how Lennin, Mao, and to some extent, Hitler started their political revolution. Most people here are ignorant of the communist history to assess the situation. Eradication is a must or America is soon taken over by the left. By then they will fully embrace a communist dictatorial ideology.

  11. When exactly did we stop saying Merry Christmas? I harken from the capital of Canada, possibly one of the most PC places in the universe and at no point in time did people stop wishing people Merry Christmas. You know who wishes me a Merry Christmas every year, the Muslim fella who owns the convenience store I frequent. As a returned courtesy I wish him a peaceful and happy Ramadan.

  12. Oh, Lord…Trump thinks policy questions are BORING??? And we wonder why our country is a mess! I bet Trump actually prints his signatures on the bills he passes IN CRAYON!

  13. BTW…on that whole "Merry Christmas" versus "Happy Holidays" flapette…the joke is on Trump. Holidays just means "holy days." That includes all of the ones that take place in the Nov-Jan time frame, like Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Advent/Christmas/Epiphany, and Kwanzaa. Nothing non-religious about it. Besides, didn't Bing Crosby sing a song with that title? Like, over *50 years ago*???

  14. Wow, why does everyone choose to eliminate Mike Gravel in their graphics? I think its ageism & fear of his brash takedowns of neoliberalism if he makes it to the debate stage.

  15. Well, I guess, better not to mention Tulsi at all than smear her to advance business as usual corporate neoliberal warmongering agenda ya'll love. I think this was for good. 😉

  16. Mueller & Cooney are both crooks and will be punished. And you Seth, are smart enough to know better, you are also a crook. And you're a fake. For instance your crowd is fake. Because you're more sad than funny. You, your canned laughter and your morbid fascination with semantics are the only funny things on your crap, fake, sad, intellectually depressed show. Good luck with that. BTW Mike Pence is not capable of helping anyone. Go enjoy the rest of your day whilst knowing that we all know you're fine with being a complete liar.

  17. December 25 is the birthday of Mithrus, the Persian Sun God. Early on, Christian authorities lured pagans to the new cult by incorporating Christianity into pagan festivals. Easter eggs vestiges of spring fertility rites. Jesus said don't be like the Pharisees and hypocrites who make sure to be seen publicly praying and urged you to go inside the closet to pray in secret not wrapped around the flag and extolling the virtues of a book he's apparently never read because it says a whole lot of bad stuff about the seven deadly sins trump owns. Plus saying he'd repent when he's done something wrong. Screwing a porn star with a wife and newborn at home, exposing them to whatever viruses Stormy could be harboring. Since adultery is in the ten commandments, looks like he's supposed to repent, by the tenets of his religion, which is apparently evangelical Christianity.
    I along with many others are sick of the crass commercialism that Christmas has become. No Christmas stuff until after Thanksgiving before, then after Halloween. Last year I was sick of the holiday season before it even got here.

  18. Just saw the environmental impact Trump is having on the world, WTF !!!! He's actually cleaning it up good. I never expected that!! It's getting harder and harder to hate this guy.

  19. These morons and Seth make Trump look like Einstein , keep up the great work on the re election #Trump2020 #MAGA

  20. He said the Democrats were sane? No crime crossing the border, free healthcare for life, and a path to citizenship. Infringement of 2nd amendment rights. Identity politics. You people are fucking nuts. It will be a civil war before the America you wish for ever sees the light of day.

  21. Seth Meyers is the epitome of a "cruise ship comedian" …if not for New York and California SM would have almost no audience at all…what an ignorant fool!!!

  22. Title of "The First Democratic Presidential Primary Debate: A Closer Look" …and he spent 90% of this segment talking about Trump!! The left's hatred for Trump has scrambled their brains!!!!

  23. This isn't really a closer look at the debate as much as it is insulting the candidates on their appearance rather than their policies.

  24. Congress man Delaney?

    ………

    Camera man pans wide out.
    Halfway through his answer….

    I found him!!!

  25. Thanks to Bo Burnham I know what the word "pandering" means, thanks to Beto O'Rourke I know what "pandering" is.

  26. this guys eyes are so freaky. Its like fish eyes, probally because he spends all his time trying to make fun of Trump. He literally uses Trump for all his content

  27. If you thought that the DNC debate was a refreshing portrayal of real political discourse…you are insane. It was horrifyingly stupid.

  28. Useful video! Always keep doing nice content and you will develop very quickly! Subscribe to our channel and then we could subscribe to your channel!

  29. Imagine having your way to 'stand out' be that you immediately alienate 46% of the American population. https://telelanguage.com/spanish-speakers-united-states-infographic/

  30. When I go to the bathroom to take a piss, I have four urinals to choose from, each one has a picture of AOC/OMAR/PRESSLEY and TLAIB. So throughout the day I get to PISS ON EACH ONE OF THEM! Life is good when you get to piss on your favorite squad member……..

  31. League of Women Voters once ran REAL debates for presidential candidates. League runs fair, nonpartisan, no "horse race" nonsense. Parties chose to use existing not-really-a-debate format. A loss for voters.

  32. What's the point of this TV show and this you tube channel?? I mean really? What's he talking about? Is he in pain or something?

  33. Seth Meyers gave us Trump with his famous joke while he licked Obongo's ass at the WHCD back in 2011.Now he's trying to appear more left than is left left

  34. Trump may be incapable of sharing attention, but Seth Meyers is incapable of doing a video about the fucking Democratic debates without having to go out of his way to talk about Trump. Pot, meet kettle.

  35. This show became a trump bashing show with repetitive jokes… Kind of wish they would expand their horizons… Enjoyed it more when it first came out

  36. Is there a tie between pro-Israeli Mainstream Media and Tulsi Gabbard smear campaign?

    Time to bring up the 500-pound gorilla into the conversation

    Although all the Jewish people I know are great, it nevertheless is necessary to point out that small faction of them are literally trying to destroy Tulsi’s campaign. At first, I did not want to believe it, but somehow there seems to be a pattern between the nastiest, most biased smear article against Tulsi and a small but extremely powerful (and vocal) fraction of the Jewish community.

    1. Most recent article: The New York time article trying to portray Tulsi as some kind of weirdo. Founder of the New-York time: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Ochs_Sulzberger_Jr.

    2. Right after the first debate Tamara Keith and Ben Shapiro (check their background) came up with a total hit piece on Tulsi, intentionally confusing ‘Isolationsim’ with ‘Non-interventionism’: https://www.npr.org/templates/transcript/transcript.php?storyId=739603781

    3. One of the most disgusting smear piece ever comes from the Daily Beast, wonderfully rebutted by Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone magazine: https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/taibbi-tulsi-gabbard-bernie-sanders-trump-2020-838156/ Note the background of DB editor in chief: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noah_Shachtman who is also a former military contractor

    4. Finally here is Seth Meyer’s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seth_Meyers who has been totally ignoring Tulsi while she had been the center of attention in both debates.

    Next you are going to ask the question, but why? The answer is that Tulsi’s intent for the US to remove the US military from the middle east is scaring pro-Israeli groups, who would desperately want to keep the US there to fight on their behalf. This is a misguided, knee-jerking approach, because Tulsi’s diplomatic approach would be best for Israel in the long run.

  37. Personally I’m not to fond of Warren because of how poorly she speaks of the republicans.
    I want the the parties to get along, and I want the Green Party to be able to get in on the action.

  38. "Boring!" – It's a presidential debate, not thunderdome asshole. Some things are not meant to be judged by their entertainment value.

  39. You don't know how lucky you are in America…You have a strong leader that has revived your economy, your military, and affirms your judeo christian culture…that authored your constitution – and created the most powerful nation the world has ever seen. 
    It's heart breaking to see so many media people (that shape the way people think) constantly mock your leader…and sneer at God.
    Here in socialist Europe we took for granted our Judeo/Christian heritage …and now it is increasingly being abandoned…We are increasingly confused. We don't know who we are or what we stand for…we have loosened our grip on integrity and truth. 
    We have lots of leaders that are driving their nations into the ground. The EU government is becoming increasingly totalitarian…and destroying European cultures.
    There's an old truth….Do to others – what you would have done to yourselves. It looks to me as if many have lost their moral compass…The curse of fundamental secularism…expressed in the new radical liberalism…is fools gold. America is straying into a dark place. 
    Until you stop mocking and tearing down…your own light will continue to dim.

  40. Donald Trump may not be the classiest person in the world but at least he cares about America. News flash dems the world is not ending in twelve years. Stop worrying about the climate. There are more pressing issues like I don’t know, the drug epidemic, homelessness, disease infested cities because of rats, lack of respect for the police that risk their lives everyday to protect us, illegal immigration that is costing each of us and also causing the crisis on the southern border that affects little children. Work hard, don’t give up, treat others the way you want to be treated and life will get better for all of us.
