    Comedy central is just like HBO, posits itself as progressive and liberal, but will undermine anyone really pushing Leftist policy and values. Look at this guy who actually wants to make America a better place, what a joke! Don't take him seriously at all.

    If an old guy who looks like Woody Allen, and who just talked to a bunch of grade school kids about cocaine, tells you you're dumb, take it as a compliment.

    Bernie is one of the few people that understands children are not as naive and dumb as adults like to pretend. And you gotta talk straight to the kids to avoid all the confusion.. Adults in this country are so lost in the sauce

    The question was "Who knows about cocaine? Anyone ever seen cocaine? (improper grammar, but I digress)..The answers were "Yes" "Ya" and a "No" So these '5 year olds' are not naïve ! And, if you are talking/teaching about stereotypes you have to say out loud the stereotypes. We've all heard them as kids, I don't care who you are, you know about derogatory sayings and remarks about people.

    Bernie is hilarious. This video is funny. In all seriousness though his proposals will ruin many hard working professionals careers and it doesn't have to be that extreme anyways. Just be more inclusive with the private sector to add more socialized programs. Otherwise, he won't get the support of those that work in private sector that are sentenced to death and Trump will take those votes instead. I believe he has a better chance of winning if he doesn't take such an ideological stance to abolish capitalism and the private sector. There's a healthier balance.

    • Eric Rosenberg

      Also there are many professionals in the private sector that are required to maintain designations that have high ethical standards that protect the public. So, it is exaggeration to suggest only the government can protect the public. In fact, those in the private sector have a greater reputation to protect than someone answering phones for the government.

    Bernie Sanders is the best mainstream politicians in the USA! And yes as a europeuan,I am from Austria for those who know the country, would be a mainstream politician here. He is a politician with good chances of becoming President. And I hope he does! Because it would not only give the US americans a saver life and better living conditions but it would also make the world a much less dangerous place for a few years and could give the planet a chance to survive. So even though I would not vote for a social democrat here in Austria,it would shift the US empire away from the far right police they are in and the American exceptionalism that endangerours life's all over the planet and I hope Bernie would put a stop to the endless wars that plague our planet,all coming from the USA and their closest allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia. Bernie consistency is what makes him the only trustworthy candidate for the upcoming presidential election besides Tulsi Gabbard.

    Bernie is just recently rich because of book sales... he’s the only honest politician ever..
    That’s what most of the comments want to believe.
    Watching news whether it be CNN, MSNBC, FOX, VOX, Daily Wire etc.. doesn’t inform anybody of any actual truth, it merely arms you with a narrative of your sides choosing. Politics is politics. Politicians are politicians. It’s all deception. You can’t really know what’s the truth no matter how hard you try. The best we can do is listen to opposing views, and not jump to be the frontline foot soldiers doing the dirty work for either side, while creating further divide and hatred. It is, and has always been the American People vs Both parties.
    To think that Bernie is somehow the only honest politician is extremely ignorant

    2016 establishment picks a candidate good or bad and rams down our throats. 2020 same fukin playbook. Bernie is the best candidate for us all to start the process period. Others can adopt his plans but he fukin invented them. He votes with the people in mind not his personal fortune or who he has to grease. Genuine as you will get just hope the people speak. See how they muddied the waters with so many distractions and how they still say i like bernie but...
