  1. “Everybody has lots of jobs, but no money”

    • @JAngulo11261 as far as I know, in southern California there’s an abundance of *temp agencies who pay a fraction, or a fraction of a fraction of your normal pay check every week and people are too afraid to go out and use that job experience anywhere else but another agency 0:

      @shad0wCh8ser let’s talk about karma. What’s karma going to bring the baby murdering leftist liberal lunatics who also flood the country with 3rd country immigrants who drive down wages, these people will work for pennies ? You will probably continue to vote Democrat. Such idiots

      @dlucas90 when the government invests money into the economy through subsidies to the big companies why doesn’t it cause inflation? Inflation rises or goes down only if there’s a disproportion between money amount and goods in the economy. So in other words, if we give 1000$ each American we basically invest in each individual as if they were a company.

    • job / employment numbers are never measured against cost of living…which is demographically and radically different depending on where you live….communities of color are at the bottom end – both Left and Right hide this fact.

      @laharl sama I agree with your post and that’s exactly the reason why I don’t vote . You said yourself you don’t see how a president could help cause it interferes with a free market. Well I’m not a supporter of a communist or controlled society but how long do you allow the rich to let the poor live on the streets just so you can maintain your free market. The rents go up but the wages don’t and nobody cares.

  2. that black guy is the only one not asking dumb questions! whats his name?

    • JUJ210 love Van! He called out Hilary for calling Tulsi a Russian asset.

    • @Isaac Kershner you still don’t get it …no one is calling You racist…I’m just pointing out that there is no such thing as a black race…yellow …..white …blue …green race….there is only the HUMAN race!

      @Kim B feel free to explain what racism is to you dear. Some are raised and taught to hate by there parents. Therefore they can developer a racist state of mind. I’m not sure what makes me a troll by saying that. Are you one of those who think racism doesn’t exist. Feel free to explain why people hate. People are not trolls for there opinion. You people created this society of hatred so please explain. I personally treat and see everyone as the same but if you have a explanation for why some don’t do share. You going to get online claiming to be a racism expert you must prove it. I’m pretty sure you are the troll. If your going to bash my opinion then have a better opinion as to why we treat people in a racist way.

      @Jah Kush I totally agree with you. Racism is created by evil men to control populations. It works pretty well for them to. If everybody thought like you did we wouldnt have the problems we have today. Anyway good evening and a peaceful holiday your way.

  3. I never voted for no president. But you YANG got my vote for 2020 I promise ✋🇺🇸

    • @DRSmetal when milinials choose not to contribute to society, that’s the issue. I have several friends who choose not to work, and settle for living off food stamps instead. The problem is how Congress handles our money. Several foreign policies go out towards illegal immigrants healthcare, and education.

    • Same here

    • Yang moving forward 🥳

    • “I never voted for no president”……. your lack of education is clear and you need to be deported as you are 3rd world trash

  4. he’s just so much smarter than them wow

  5. I love this dude!!! As a Mexican I hope he is the next president or at least sometime in the near future

  6. I know it’s overused, but the whole “if he can unite a comment section, he can unite America”, it always amazes me the diversity of the yang comments section. I see replications, democrats, moderates, undecided, young and old, men and women, a mix of ethnicities and yet a complete lack of bashing and trolling that I normally see on other threads. Imagine if the whole country were like that.

    I see CNN all up on Yang. Do they remember how shitty they treated him early in the year? I do. Good things Yang is such a forgivingperson. .

      @Mike M Lol, Pearl Harbor was Japan, Yang’s parents are from Taiwan. Are you Russian by any chance?

    • @Dewayne Thomas Sure Dewayne, and the Japs didn’t want war in 1941. His eyes and his lies give him away to reasonably intelligent people. Suckers like you always fall victim. I hope you learn some day before it is too late. Oh and no I am not Russian but they are a great people who fought Hitler as our ally. I understand why you hate Russians, because CNN told you to. Puppet.

    • It’s really mainly van jones. The rest weren’t on the yang gang train. But I’m glad they’re starting to hype him up.

    • Dewayne Thomas | December 20, 2019 at 6:13 PM | Reply

      @NI5HU A. Cuomo likes him too, you can see a visible erection. And what’s her name is practically sliding off her chair like a slip an slide.

  8. Van Jones really showing his yang gang spirit in that question

  9. The only one who asked good question was that black guy. Thank God he saved Yang from those questions 🤷🏻‍♀️💫

    If Donald Glover and Elon musk support Yang, you best believe this guy is serious and on point .

    • Trump 2020 bro the American problem is everything involving the way of life in the U.S. and it’s prosperity, and yes that does include racism because that IS an American problem. I don’t give a toot about what Obama did. I’m not a Democrat. I just only care about the right candidate with the right mindset who talks numbers and data that is morally and ethically better than Trump. To me, that is clearly Yang. Trump is literally the sorest of all losers of our century. Did you not see him get impeached? How do you think he got himself into this mess working in the damn office

    • American Taco bro I’m not a slave to anything. I literally see Trump’s narcissistic, ignorant, and racists tweets all the time on Twitter. If those people choose to accept that kind of behavior so be it. I’m not supporting it. I’m supporting Yang who is actually trying to do something for left and right. Go get some better morals bro

    • @Keenan 23
      So you gonna vote for Biden with all his high morals and integrity?

    • American Taco hell no. That man is a recipe for Trump to get re-elected. I’m shooting for one shot and one shot only and that is Andrew Yang.

    • @Keenan 23
      I respect your enthusiasm but if Bernie cant get the nomination NO way Yang getting in.
      Sorry bro

  11. Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud that his message is being shared even in 2019. I’m so proud of him too. Thank you, CNN!

  12. I like Andrew Yang. He is refreshing.

  13. Van jones is the only person of color sitting there 😥😂

  14. At the very least, I hope Yang winds up as the Vice President. He’s a gem

  15. Clearly the smartest candidate with new and fresh idea.

  16. This guy’s the real deal. Yanggang2020

  17. rise up yang gang, we can get our man in there – get on phones, tell your friends, speak out

    • Talk to strangers wherever you meet! You can use your smartphone to show Yang’s website with his name displayed! It works fantastically. People like to hear data and facts!!

    • Don’t forget at the end ask two things:
      1). Donate to
      2). Join dem party to vote for Yang so yang can be the nominee (tell Republicans to do so even though they are life long Republicans! )

  18. I never voted but Andrew Yang got my vote 100%

  19. I like Yang glad they called on him a bit more this time around.

  20. Asian, black, white, Hispanic, I don’t care. Fresh ideas, next level intelligence, real rational big picture thinking. This is it.
