100 thoughts on “Certainty When You Wrote The Bill; Seeing Humanity In The Economy | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC”

  • Yang is genuine and brilliant. He doesn't talk like a politician, because he not one, yet he clearly knows more about the problems plaguing America and the world, than any other politicians running. Bernie gets it, but not to the same degree Yang does. One of the biggest problems in the US is how divided the people are and Bernie is still fueling that divisive fire (albeit, less than many other candidates). It is so pathetic in American politics that candidates think they need to win by degrading or attacking their opponents. What is so wrong about winning on merit alone. Yang is more than confident enough in his merits to win, so why stoop to what others do when they lack substance. That is why Yang is one of 2 candidates gaining more than 10% of Republican votes. Gaining one Republican vote, equals 2 votes for democrats, because Republican gain negative one vote. Beating Trump won't solve anything unless the winning candidate is capable of solving the very complex problems which caused Trump to get elected. Warren for instance denies that automation is a factor, when all evidence, facts and brilliant people like Elon Musk say that automation is about to explode onto the scene.
    It will be utter chaos if politicians wait until it happens (tens of millions of jobs will be displaces almost overnight). Yang is very different, in a good way, because he only came out of necessity to save the country he loves and he has the intellectual brilliance and vision to solve the complex problems.

    If Democrats think Biden, Harris or Warren (big phony) are the answer to Trump, then they need to never say Trump voters are stupid, because they haven't a clue either, as to what is best for them and their country. Yang and Bernie are the only two smart enough to see the roots of the problems and genuine enough to care enough to actually solve them for the people. With Yang being the best choice to solve the most problems, because he just naturally has more tools (Bernie is very intelligent, but Yang is a brilliant visionary like Elon Musk). That is why Elon for the first time gave his support to a politician.

  • National Study Academy Kim says:

    Disaffected Maddow follower here. Notice all of the comments for Andrew? She missed the mark on Russian conspiracy hoaxes, she missed the mark on Andrew Yang's vision, she missed the mark on what brought out the Don to the WH!. Wake up Rachel and smell the coffee. Take a look at the comments from Ben Shapiro with Andrew Yang interview.

  • werthy is my name says:

    You know what I see through msnbc and fox and nbc ? You guys are always omitting Andrew Yang. Even twitter……

  • OMG when she said he "popped the gills" I had to go back and rewatch and whoa I hadn't noticed he was holding his breath and trying not to look flustered! Hilarious!

  • Yang gang! Supporting Yang online isn’t enough—
    1) Make sure you actually REGISTER as a Democrat by the deadline
    2) CHECK YOUR STATE’S primary date (which is different for each state)
    3) ACTUALLY VOTE!

  • I hope you millennials are are ready to vote and finally change the direction of this country. Andrew Yang is that future,if you want it. Do everything you can to let the nation know that this is the change you want. This dog eat dog Society that we live in now, will only get worse unless you change it. Don't listen to anyone who tries to put a label on this change, create a new government that is truly geared towards the well being of ALL Americans, their families, their children and their children's future, and draw the world into that light.

  • The question arises, why does the corporate media immediately reinforce those Republican talking points by repeating them on the air? "… won't nominating a socialist reelect Donald Trump" or "Can you guarantee those union members that their benefits will be as good under your plan?" The MSM is under constant attack by our Groper-in-Chief as fake news or failing this-and-that but when it comes to the Democratic debates, CNN or whoever are happy to regurgitate Republican talking points. Rachel Maddow's belief that candidates need some photogenic moment or memorable soundbite in order to stand out and fire up their supporters is typical of the gate keeping role the MSM thinks it has of deciding what should influence their viewers. Bernie Sanders has been consistent on his message for decades. The MSM branded him long ago as too radical but most of his issues now define the debate in the Democratic Party. Or they would if the MSM would stop carrying water for the Republican Party and the corporatist establishment. Bernie has the most donors and the most diverse donors spread out all over the country. They will stick with him no matter who gets a good soundbite.

  • #YangGang reporting for duty. Big ups Rachel for speaking kindly about the peoples choice, Andrew Yang. When you take a close look at all the candidates, Andrew is light-years ahead of them. We gotta get this man elected.

  • Why people listen to this woman!!! She is so annoying!!! She takes forever to make a point. Treat her viewers like idiots.

  • There are a lot of idiots in America!! Andrew yang don’t a chance!! If Americans had a half a brain they would back Bernie or Warren. Yang!!!! Really!!!

  • WTF is going on here? Is the editor and Chief in the Hampton's on vacation? I can practically hear him or her spiting out their Grey Goose martini., scream "Get Rachel on the phone", Doesn't she know we fired Ed Schultz's for talking positively about Bernie Sanders.

  • George Rasmutin says:

    Thank you MSNBC put your personal interesets and dogmatic loyalties to the side and let DEMOCRACY reign supreme if america, better yet the world's most important country ever needed people power and democracy it's now let the people have some input we are on the ground level after all .

  • My mind is on Bernie because I know more about his integrity and policies through the bills he has worked on and proposed. I need to know more about Yang. Advertiser driven media, please make that happen.

  • Yeah right what we need is tweetable moments. Rachel how about some actual news for a change. Maybe what we need are policies that can combat the very real challenges we are facing. Climate destruction, extreme weather and flooding, growing poverty and inequality, a corrupt government run for and by corporations, and then covered by those same corporations. Oh wait you're apart of that ecosystem!

  • Yang supporters , can't you see when someone is trying to buy you off? The boldest best plans to really make the needed changes in this country are the ones Bernie Sanders had put out for all to read. Just read his policies he shows how they are paid for, he isn't hiding anything from the American voter. MSM outlets are now seeing the writing on the wall, they are loosing young viewers everyday because they no longer speak truth to power for the people. I use to watch Maddow a lot , but then I began to realize that they do not address the real problems in America because if they did it would effect their money bags. Don't be fooled by the super elites misinformation campaign plans(polls,polls,polls), they are terrified of Sanders and looking at his record they should be.

  • Very poor analysis, this is what is wrong with this soundbyte political culture, which got a reality TV star elected. Forget about aplauses and tweetable moments, MSNBC, please take politics serious.

  • Although I like yang personality and some of his plans like UBI
    Yang is liked by billionaires and alt right and is not for wealth tax, also he's weak on foreign policy

  • Sanders is the ONLY viable nominee. Yang is not as bad as those moderate/republican lite candidates but is not a serious option.
    BERNIE 2020!!

  • Cosmo Spacemonkey says:

    Not a yang guy BUT… I love how he destroys the mythology of Bernie’s progressivism which is rooted in the 20th century and completely ignores the future reality of a near zero work force.

  • Cosmo Spacemonkey says:

    The major lapse in Reason that the Bernie folks seem to suffer from is that all those working class jobs the progressive movement has been fighting a century for are owned by corporations and built on the mass production/consumption paradigm and propelled by a mass marketing machine to convince all of us that we need their products…and convince those who work in horrible factory jobs that their work is an “ethic”.

  • Joe Biden looks like Republican Light to me. I don’t want to accept that a woman candidate or a progressive candidate cannot win. I need someone who can stand on a stage with the Chief Narcissist and shut him up.

  • I feel the Burn,, the Yang is the Thing, Warren is not foreign Biden ain't hidden and Harris is a pit Bull. How would you Trump the stump compare to any of these. Watch Michael Moore's ""Fahrenheit 11/9'' It may open you eyes to make a choice,,later on.

  • Mildred Wafula says:

    And why has the economy left them behind 🤔🤔🤔sounds very familiar but hey Sanders Sanders Sanders😱😱😱

  • Drawing the names out of a hat…What BS! If you don't think that entire bit was scripted, with video clips at the ready, you are really gullible. Maddow wastes time repeating herself, and with insulting stunts like that.

  • Edward Ames Castellano says:

    This is why we need to hear from Andrew Yang, because even if he isn't the democrats choice for the ticket.. he will make an excellent HUD Secretary.. and cabinet member.

  • "Moments" are good, sure. They show your wit and your passion, and that's important. But without substance behind them, moments are nothing.

  • I like Yang as a person. He's an ethical and well-informed individual BUT his political career is unproven and untested. There is only ONE Democratic candidate who has been consistent for decades about his policies. There is only ONE Democratic candidate who has a realistic approach to moving foward to improve Americas middle and working class. Dont need to say his name. #FEELTHEBURN2020

  • beatman beatman says:

    Corporate media is so put of touch. Bernie is working for the people not looking for sound bites. Nobody but old people watch tv anymore and thats why you put this crap on YouTube.

  • keith mcdowell says:

    Rachel only supports the ones picked by her masters. The fact she is for him is enough to make me suspicious. She is a corporate shill and does what she is told.

  • Monique Geritz says:

    A few good ideas doesn't make you a decent Presidential candidate. I thought ppl had learned from the last time, that we need someone who's qualified for the job and look at their record. Bernie wins every time, imo, but WTH do I know. Atleast he cares and doesn't pander, he's doing very well on the campaign trail and not just with white ppl, young ppl, but also the black community, eventhough he won't win them all over, he's still the best option. Whoever wins, has a lot if mess to clean up first, 't the border, the EU, Paris Accord, the EPA, our failing infrastructure etc. etc Not to mention Israel, Russia, North Korea and ofcause his little tariffwar with China. I don't hear the candidates talk about any of that. What are they gonna do for the farmers, immigrants, so much to undo, the Muslim ban. What will they do if they would win…..

  • I stopped watching her show and MSNBC after watching their dismissal of Yang in the debate and afterwards. Trump was not entirely wrong

  • Silk®

    The Obama's are buying their third mansion. Joe Biden just bought another mansion, Bernie Sanders has houses and mansions but lectures everyone on income inequality. Looks like the life style of the Rich and Socialist. Why won't they spread their wealth?

  • John Lancaster says:

    Candidate Tulsi Gabbard taken off debate stage after systematically destroying DNC and mass media darling Kamala Harris.

  • Bernie Sanders is giving lots of speeches drawing enthusiastic crowds.

    Joe Biden?

    Sen. Bernie Sanders Address at 76th UE National Convention in Pittsburgh https://youtu.be/ySnSgx4DUIc
    Joe Rogan Experience #1330 – Bernie Sanders https://youtu.be/2O-iLk1G_ng

  • What is the point of these Democratic Primary Debates when the DNC argued in open court that they are not required to hold fair primary elections after famously rigging their own 2016 primary in favor of Hillary Clinton. They publicly said they'll cheat. Why isn't that the story everyone covers on a daily basis?

    Also, Andrew Yang has repeatedly claimed that CNN kept cutting off his microphone in the debates.

  • America Reigns says:

    Nasty old angry decrepit socialist mummy who will NEVER BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. 🖕😎🖕 goodbye barnie sanders.

  • There is NOTHING intrinsically bad or wrong in any concept like Communism or Socialism. Stalin and Mao may have called their government Communism or Socialism. They were Dictatorships. I think Sanders should not have used the word Socialism because it was nieve to think it wouldn't give him trouble. I would say it is TOOO Democratic to say, "Free Education for all." just like the Minium Income concept. If he would have said, "I will bring free education to those who can't afford it and fees based on the family income of each family." and if each family would receive a minimum income based on their family structure and needs which can include free health care and food stamps or free basic food support for poor families. And, more support for those who put their children into an educational program leading to Highschool Diploma and higher education… Which would be more like $1,500 for poorer families, 1,200 for lower-middle-class families and $1,000 to lower-class to middle-class people with part-time jobs, and so on. There is no need to give more money to people whose family income is over $1,500,000 per year. Perhaps an extra tax deduction of $1,000 to keep
    it looking to be fairer.
