    Joe: you should run as a republican. DO IT

  2. I voted for Obama both times so dont tell me I cant criticize some of his terrible policies , he promised change and didnt bring it !!! He like MSNBC and this Morning Joe crew caved to big corporations and special interests !!!

    • @Nate Dunn friendly fire is still fatal. It’s not cumbia stuff. The system of corruption because of money in politcs is the real opponent. Acting tough and reinforcing Republican criticisms might win you the battle but will lose you the war! Everyone wants the same thing just have different strategies on how to get there. Too much division will fracture the coalition and allow Trump to inch out a victory…just like the last time!!

    • @Nate Dunn they should be pointing out how Trump and the Republican Party handed businesses 1.5 trillion dollars. How he’s touting an economy that was bore on the back of the previous president. How despite him criticizing African American run cities that the majority of poor cities are actually run by Republican and how they are going to help strengthen all of us not just the wealthy.

      A lot could have been done had not been for blocking Mitch McConnell.

    • @thug21 I agree that is what they need to talk about but only after a Democrat has been nominated to challenge Trump but now is the time for the nominee’s to challenge each other , how on earth are we supposed to decide who that person should be if the only thing they all talk about in the debate’s are how much they all hate Trump and his policies???

    Absolutely nothing wrong with Uncle Joe having to try and defend his record. Past is prologue, his record informs his thought process and judgement. Stop living in fear!

  4. Joe need to go feel the burn go Bernie!!!!

    • @FuckILoveYouTubby thats why we love him. Tankie Bernie coming to spread democracy.

      Here in Detroit the only two candidates people are talking about are Bernie and Kamala. But Bernie is opposed to reparations so he’s lost my vote. And he helped pass the crime bill that destroyed black families. He’s not as racist as Biden but he’s not getting my vote. Kamala will be getting my support.

    • @Music Playlists lol no mention of Kamala’s criminal justice record in your diatribe. Would you like a link?

    • Music Playlists | August 3, 2019 at 12:57 AM | Reply

      @Jay Garrick what about it? She was a prosecutor. I expect prosecutors to sometimes be the bad guy. You just don’t like Kamala because she’s black.

  5. per usual, Joe makes no sense

  6. With the great recession he came into, Obama worked miracles.

    • @Music Playlists Not at all.

      @easy money are you blind or do you have eyes to see? Biden is trying to ride the coattails of Obama and giving the false impression that if we nominate him, things will return back to 2008 – 2016 as if he was the mastermind behind Obama. No thank you. I’ll stick to Kamala Harris.

    • He bailed out the bankers instead of the people, horray!

    • We could fill libraries writing about all the things Obama did wrong. But lets give him credit where credit is due. He did miracles and turned things around at a critical moment for the US. And he always had to fight obscene amounts of insane opposition to anything he did just because. And this is a fact.

    The ACA is a CONSERVATIVE, profit-driven legislation.

    Edit: We do NEED to get out of Afghanistan. We need to stop wasting billions of dollars on these endless wars.

    Why is there not more support for Bernie Sanders, by the main stream media? He has almost double the individual donations over nearest other democratic runner, Elizabeth Warren?

    • Ross Chain but they did 4 years ago?

    • Sanders and all other socialists are simply lying deceivers…socialism takes yours and gives it to freeloaders in the ruse of economic equality…ever hear of Venezuela. Medicare for all means you become a ward of the state and flunkies will determine your care…deception.

    • Boaty Mc Boatface Because he is a socialist that will destroy the largest best economy in the world. Take a plane ride and spend a week in Democratic Socialist Venezuela, to see how that nation was destroyed by a Bernie Sanders president. Destroyed in less than 10 years.

    Mika! You owe me brain bleach for that last comment! lol

    Tulsi Gabbard, a woman member of the military, wants no more foreign wars.

    • Tulsi has integrity. The progressives have the best ideas and the centrist can’t stand it. That’s why greedy corporate media is trying to run them into the ground.

    • Peggy Trawick Wh cars what she wants.Let her Explain that To the Republicans and Putin. When we have to do what is necessary, and the Conspirators following Him,also say, when we hit Russia with the Worst Sanctions in History! The Friend of our enemies at home, hit us under Putin, with a Cyber war attack, that will not be seen clearly

  11. What planet are these people from. Universal healthcare and how we achieve it is one of the two top priorities of the people. And a majority of citizens want Bernie’s medicare-for-all (nearly half of republicans for gawds sake). No matter how many lies MSNBC tells about med-for-all the people keep seeing through them. We know who is pulling MSNBCs strings. Your candidates (Biden, Harris, Booker) are going down!

    • Biden is a moderate. He has said medicare for all is unfeasible and a pipe dream. Most of Americans are center left or center right….we’re moderate. It’s the idiots on the far left and far right causing all of the hoopla….and Trump is exciting the far right. And here we go with all the division and hate…….America’s moderate majority must speak up!

  12. Am I the only one who doesn’t remember them attacking Barrack Obama?

  13. MSNBC is in full damage control mode after the corporate choice of Biden is not working out so well. If the answer is to ignore progressives because of those “Midwest moderates” that the Joe team cannot shut up about, then why even have debates? Let the experts on MSNBC just tell us who to vote for. Because they can pick winners… Hillary.
    They have decided the candidate for you. Just get with the program and just wait another 4 or 8 years before we start to think about issues. Nerds!

    Biden should tell the surgeon to pull the skin on his face downward next time.

  15. I disagree. You guys need to need to wake up, jeesh!

  16. They need not only wake up but they need to drop out so we can focus on a fewer, 3 or 4 candidates who can push out the Evil from W/H.

    the sake of our democracy.!

  17. lol keep attacking obama, the most popular person in the democratic party… see where that gets you XD

    Biden get your own legacy. Barack

    Gee, they really worship Obama and the establishment on this network. Maybe he’s just not as popular with Democrats as you people think! “Going after the man we all love!”, please.

  20. Funny how smearing is only ok when it’s Trump or his supporters.
    Also funny how you all think it’s normal now for “news programs” to push a certain person…ya that’s fine now
