    Let’s stop and frisk Bloomberg

  2. I feel like biden takes the black and brown vote for granted and when he saw he had little chances in new hampshire and Iowa he just gave up. I dont like that attitude.

  3. We don’t need a billionaire and racist

  4. 5-Way … I can Only see one way and that is Bernie Sanders Winning …..

  5. No more “billionaires”.

    • Please explain to me why 12% of Bernie supporters voted for the billionaire in 2016…since you guys are always waxing poetic about how much you hate them….something fishy there.

  6. Bernie’s winning despite running against the media, against the oligarchy & against the DNC. It’s truly incredible to be in the lead at this point.

  7. Biden is NOT The Man..

      He never was. Biden was in fourth place nationally all last year and I said so… both here and on my own web site. I also showed the data to prove it. MSNBC is worthless.

    • I like Biden, but I have worried he will have the same issues Hilary had, being “longtime establishment”. Obama was NOT “longtime establishment”, but he needed had a Vice President that was… not looking good for him.

  8. A “five way” is also what t’rump calls his dinner plans with the two Big Mac two filet o fish dinner he has each night.
    🚽 💦 💦 💦 💦 💦

  9. Total delegate count so far: Sanders (22); Buttigieg (21); Warren (8); Klobuchar (7); Biden (6); all the others zero. Delegates up for grabs in South Carolina: (54)

    • D S, I think your numbers are off. 88% of sanders voters ended up voting for Hillary to try to stop Agent Orange. That number is higher than the number of Clinton voters who eventually went Obama in 2008.

    • @Tommy Liu Wrong…pay close attention to the first graphic. This is on several websites as well. Research isn’t your strong suit, is it? Good thing I’m an excellent researcher.


    • @D S you should think before writing any comments. “24.6% of Bernie supporter did not vote democrat in 2016 which directly resulted in a Trump win” so do you think a repeat of the loss is sensible ? do you think that you should give Bernie supporter a candidate they believe in ? a lot of ill feeling in your community for Bernie and his supporters ? who disenfranchised those voters ? was it Bernie ? nope it was the DNC handing the candidacy to a moderate they didn’t like. Because you cannot tell people they have to vote for someone they do not believe in.. the DNC caused that situation not Bernie and not his supporters. The same will happen again if the DNC rig the election against Bernie. The percentage may be higher with a repeat.
      so if your community has an issue.. probably better to give the people the candidate they want .. not what the elites dictate your having wouldn’t you say ? How do you stop a repeat of what you know is going to happen.. vote for Bernie. only 52% of the country even bothers to vote.. but you blame a small % of Bernie supporters… and Bernie who attended far more campaign events for Clinton than Clinton ever did for Obama. Try and at least be logical.

    • @Hannah wells We are voting against Bernie in the primaries….he hasn’t won yet, you know that, right? I didn’t bother reading the rest of your idiocy. Long story short, Hispanic lives cut short because Bernie supporters had their panties in a wad are more important to me than anything you can ever say.

    I don’t think just an empty apology will restore the life of those black and brown families that were affected by this racist billioner. No more of the same BS . Power to the people
    Remember America we sign this politicians checks. vote only for people that will only make laws that makes our lives better Not the rich .

      Amen Sister!

    • Agreed. I’m Hispanic and we are very focused on, not just the cause (Trump), but also what led to the atrocities my community has experienced over the past few years – the 2016 election and who enabled Trump to win (ex. “Democrats” who didn’t vote for the Democrat). In Texas, we are very motivated to serve vengeance for the families who lost their loved ones in El Paso.

  11. This was not just a policy, it was his true racial beliefs. PERIODS! “When a Man shows you who they are….believe them the first time.” I believe he has hatred for black & browns.

  12. No Bloomberg. Periodt.

  13. Bloomberg, your apology is a little late. people can make mistakes but when apologize to get something (votes) are you sincere in that apology?

    MSNBC Billionaire is so 2008 .
    2020 belongs to Bernie Sanders

    Blacks, African American, Latino, Hispanic, people of color, what ever label you put on us we are for Bernie. Bernie has been for Us all these years, now it’s time for Us to be with Bernie now.

  16. Tom Steyer: he’s polling at 1%….


    • 100% in Agreement. Im. Bernie Bro, AKA 52 yo Hispanic middle class female.

    • @Kevin Dwyer The DNC doesn’t vote….people do…and butt-hurt Bernie supporters have blood on their hands.

    • @Lourdes I’m calling BS on your post – no REAL Hispanic would ever vote for Bernie. Also, a female Bernie bro? Get real. Finally, Hispanics DIED because 24.6% of Bernie supporters threw their votes away to try to take down the DNC (which was a monumental failure)…so you’re saying if your mom had been one of the victims in El Paso you would be cool with the Bernie supporters who helped get Trump elected which led to emboldening white supremacists like the shooter in El Paso to commit his murderous act. If so, you are one vile human being and it’s no wonder you would vote for the pathetic excuse of a man who couldn’t unite his voters to do the right thing and vote Democrat in 2016. “Lourdes”…yeah, real Hispanic name there…consider yourself excommunicated.

    • @D S So you think the DNC influence has nothing to do with people’s opinions? That spreading bad information doesn’t affect casual voters? I’m cool with disagreeing with ideologies or policies. All good, but spreading GOP talking points and misinformation isn’t the way to be. #voteBlueNoMatterWho, but if given a choice #NotMeUs

    • @Kevin Dwyer Spreading right-wing talking points and misinformation…you’re describing Bernie supporters, buddy.

  18. He said “I’m sorry ” 😂😂😂😂🖕

  19. I dont like this whole “black people save me!” stuff from Joe

    • Thespectre82 Joe – the author of the1994 Crime Bill.

    • Do you think Trump is going to help black people?
      Trump was busted by the FBI three times for refusing to rent to black people.
      You can find those cases in the Internet.
      Blacks can make a huge difference in the election by voting.
      Something they fought for so hard during the civil rights movement, which I am old enough to remember.
      It has been well-established that the Russians have been putting out propaganda to get Black’s tonight vote for any Democrat.
      Like crap saying Hillary was in the KKK and all this other crap.
      Despite Kanye blathering on about Trumo, blacks have the most to lose if Trump becomes president again.
      I would rather hear Joe tell blacks to vote for him, than hear Trump’s propagandists telling blacks to be apathetic, and not to vote.
      Trump is scared of the black vote.
      So he is going to try to convince them that all the Democrats are against them.

  20. I would vote for Steyer over Bloomberg any day of the week
