The Democratic Debate: Watch the Highlights From the First Half


“This is the CNN/
New York Times Democratic presidential debate.” “Sometimes there are issues
that are bigger than politics and I think that’s the case
with this impeachment inquiry.” “In my judgment,
Trump is the most corrupt president in the
history of this country.” “He has committed
crimes in plain sight. And he has consistently
since he won been selling out
the American people. He’s been selling out working
people, he’s been selling out our values, he’s been selling
out national security, and on this issue
with Ukraine he has been selling
out our democracy.” “If it’s not O.K. for
a president’s family to be involved in
foreign businesses, why was it O.K. for your son
when you were vice president? Vice President Biden?” “Look, my son did
nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. Rudy Giuliani, the president
and his thugs have already proven that
they in fact are flat lying.” “Your son Hunter today
gave an interview, admitted that he made
a mistake and showed poor judgment by serving
on that board in Ukraine. Did you make a mistake
by letting him? You were the point person
on Ukraine at the time. If you can answer.” “Look, my son’s statement
speaks for itself. My son made a judgment. I’m proud of the
judgment he made. I’m proud of what
he had to say. And let’s focus on this: The fact of the
matter is that this is about Trump’s corruption.” “But you have not
specified how you’re going to pay for the
most expensive plan, Medicare for all. Will you raise taxes?” “Costs will go up
for the wealthy. They will go up for
big corporations. And for middle class families,
they will go down. I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs
for middle-class families.” “Your signature, senator, is to
have a plan for everything. Except this. No plan has been
laid out to explain how a multi-trillion dollar hole
in this Medicare for all plan that Senator Warren
is putting forward is supposed to get filled in.” “At least Bernie is being
honest here and saying how he’s going to pay for this and that taxes are
going to go up. And I’m sorry, Elizabeth, but you have not said that. And I’m tired of hearing,
whenever I say these things, ‘Oh it’s Republican
talking points.’ You are making Republican
talking points right now in this room by coming
out for a plan that’s going to do that.” “I think we need to be
focused on lifting people up. And sometimes I think
that Senator Warren is more focused
on being punitive or pitting some part of
the country against the other instead of lifting people up
and making sure this country
comes together.” “I’m really shocked
at the notion that anyone thinks
I’m punitive. Look, I don’t have a beef
with billionaires …” “Well, Anderson, this is
my first time on this stage, so I just want to start
by reminding everybody that every candidate here
is more decent, more coherent and more patriotic than the
criminal in the White House.” “This is the sixth debate
we have had in this presidential cycle and not nearly one word,
with all of these discussions about health care,
on women’s access to reproductive health care,
which is under full-on attack in America today. Women are the majority of the
population in this country. People need to keep their
hands off of women’s bodies and let women
make the decisions about their own lives.” “Thank you, senator.” “And let’s talk about that.”

  1. Obvious media bias. There's not a SINGLE republican representative featured this entire debate. Media liberals at it again.

  2. You demoshits shiuld just stop talking the more you do the more you loose
    Great news if Olaghuan Cummings i hope they really di go in threes watch out pelameosu and shift

  3. Warren doesn't excite anyone. I don't know why she's the front runner. She's smart, and well spoken. Yang does a better job.

  4. Why is it that we are so divided by republican and democrat if at the end of the day we need somebody that would care about everybody. Not somebody that’s going to say your thought are bad and my thoughts are good. 🤦‍♂️

  5. I’m surprised the New York Times hasn’t scrubbed the comments here cause they are nothing but a propaganda rag sheet! Journalism is dead!

  6. This debate is all about them and trying to become the next president and almost all we hear when they talk is Trump bad Trump this Trump that. This is not about him it’s about you.

    These candidates are just whining and lying and this debate just made ten of my liberal friends open their eyes

  7. Why highlight the elderly GROSS. WHATS BIDEN 90? Warren 70? Why do they have to be soooooooooo old? Tulsi is looking good!

  8. It’s a tax and spend conga line, tax and spend tax and spend, everybody do the tax and spend.

    One thing they all agree on is clamoring aboard the impeachment bandwagon.

  9. You are asking for a tighter collar around our necks wanting any of these candidates, and a horrible future for the children. Why people don't want to be free of dictators is beyond me, learn what the constitution is about and teach it to your children if you truly want freedom.

  10. They’re on Warren because she’s got the most coherent and overall realistic plans, while these other candidates lack clarity, or like O’Rourke, are clowns. This was a shameful grasp at straws that was truly beneath the Democrats and if anything, helped “Dear Leader”… Shame on you guys for moving away from the spirit of unity you’ve shown up until now.

  11. CNN debates are a joke. No real issues, no real candidates ( except Tulsi Gabbard). Bidden is a crook, Bernie has a serious health issue, Pocahontas is pure lunacy. If this is all the Dems have , Trump is applauding .

  12. Love how CNN and the socialists/democrats don't want the American Flag showing anywhere near them because they know it triggers the America-hating voters they are so thirsty to milk. The left's entire agenda is to weaken any sense of National pride within Western nations so that global socialism will be acceptable. True Americans need to stop this while we still can. A lot of us swore to defend the Constitution (not the government – the CONSTITUTION) from ALL enemies – foreign AND DOMESTIC. Let's not forget that oath while we still have the 2nd Amendment because if we continue allowing these socialists to infiltrate our Republic the day will come when they try to take that away from us too.

  13. Kamala: “We need to ensure Women’s reproductive rights!”

    Supreme Court: “Should we tell her about the Roe v. Wade case? Nah, let’s just leave her be”

  14. This video cherry pics statements and puts them out of context. DO NOT use this video to form opinions about these candidates. Watch/listen to the entire debate to be fully informed. And why not? It’s super interesting.

  15. LOOK AT THE THUMBS UP AND DOWN, YOU CAN NOT LIE ABOUT THAT~~~THEY USED TO BE 3 TO ONE AGAINST DEMS~~NOW ITS 4 TO ONE~AGAINST DEMS
    TRUMP BY A LANDSLIDE…….PUT YOUR MONEY ON IT!

  17. "reproductive healthcare is on full attack!"?? Uh, no, just baby killing. Democrats can't even say the word abortion. It's BABY KILLING. that's all.

  18. Morons all of them! My God they should watch themselves and realize just how stupid and crazy they all are.
