        Biden: Watch some WNBA for me please so I can tweet about wamanz playing sports
        Intern: But I don't watch WNBA!
        Biden: Neither does anyone else.

            Literally everyone except Sanders, Warren, Yang can go. Like Harris but she should run for governor or get her own TV show.

                      You should change the title of Trump monologue to DOING IT PEACHY. Background of banner should be orange though.

                          Bidens people have been good at keeping him off camera but they need to limit his internet access. They just need to hide that he has lost his marbles for one more year.😬🤞

                            I like Tulsi Gabbard. Dont laugh. I've tallied up all the candidates and she has the highest ratio of good stuff to bad stuff. But she doesnt resonate with the average voter. Female. On her second marriage (looks bad when women do it), doesnt lie, doesnt rant, doesnt blame scapegoats, a bit young, and threatened to boycott the debates which just makes her look worse, not better.
                            Oh well, life goes on.

                                So a right wing troll tried to get a fake sex scandal going with Harris. He hired an actor to say they had an affair. The actor wasn't on it. He'd never heard of Kamala Harris.

                                What does that say about her campaign's chances?

                                        We don't need another candidate starting mired in scandal from day 1. Biden has been too long a Washington insider, and he's too old and out of touch to get excited about. He won't electrify the base, and he won't get independents to go to the polls. It's time to focus on a candidate Democrats can actually look up to! One who didn't spend 8 recent years as a running gag on late night television.

                                          Kamala Harris is terrible and i'll never forget when Tulsi Gabbard ripped her ass apart in that debate exposing her as a hypocrite

                                            kamala seems like a alcoholic or on something. or so it seems to me. that chip on her shoulder thug chick attitude doesn't work either.

                                                  Republican Joe Biden is clearly just reading off a script

                                                  Never forget that he is 1 of 2 Democrats that crossed the aisle to vote with the republicans to enslave the populous with inescapable college debts. A truly evil act that immediately caused bankruptcies in this country to increase by 300%, reduced car sales by 15%, reduced young people buying homes by 75% you know shit that’s obviously good

                                                      I'm not a Harris supporter (although I'll vote for her if she wins the nomination) but I don't find anything awkward about how she handled the heckler. She's always been good with the feisty comebacks and that's all that was. Now, unless something happened after that moment that Stephen didn't show us, it was the heckler who was being awkward.

                                                        I pay no attention to sports, like at all. So I don't understand what was awkward about Status Quo Joe's tweet about the Superbowl and Johny Unitas. Could some kind person who is more culturally literate than I, give me an explanation? What was wrong with that tweet? Was it as out of date as his suggestion children listen to record players?

Meanwhile Bernie is great but with his heart attack, I'm not sure he'll last the distance. His pick of VP matters more than anyone else's me thinks. I have no qualms at all of Warren being President. Only issue will be she'd cause such a resurgence with the Right that the Republicans will take the House and Senate in 2022 midterms even if Dems win narrow majorities in both in 2020. Ironically, because Bernie really energises the people who feel left behind who tend to vote Republican, I think he'd have the best chance of keeping the House and Senate in 2022.

Sure, in theory it's nice to have extended time to vet the candidates to find the best one for the country, but in practice, these increasingly long, obscenely competitive, and grotesquely vitriolic primary seasons are doing more damage than good.

I'm supposed to assume he doesn't know his facts forwards & back before the show starts? Or that the prompter somehow has different info than the writer?
