3rd Democrat Debate Highlights: Trudeau’s Hair, Small Dudes, & “We’re Gonna Take Your AK-47”

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

Okay, so let’s talk about Thursday’s debate.  Apparently, every month the Democrats are going to subject us to at least one of these debates, and I suppose that this time around we should be thankful that they did not stretch things out over two nights.  All of the big news networks are covering the debate as if it was some sort of political playoff game, but the truth is that Thursday’s debate probably won’t move the numbers much at all.  Nothing of substance was said that wasn’t said in previous debates, and there were no defining moments that will significantly change the course of the campaign.

So that is really bad news for anyone not named Joe, Bernie or Elizabeth. 

Real Clear Politics keeps a running average of all the recent major national polls, and according to them none of the other candidates is even close to double digits right now.  It looks like it is going to be a three way race between Biden, Sanders and Warren, and Warren appears to be the one with momentum.  Of course it is still possible that something huge could happen between now and the beginning of next year that could fundamentally shake up the race, but as it stands now the other seven candidates that were on the stage with them might as well pack up and go home.

So the truth is that the debate really wasn’t that important, but many Americans watch these debates for the sheer entertainment value.  With that in mind, here is the most memorable quote from each of the 10 candidates during Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate…

Cory Booker: “I’m the only person on this stage that finds (Justin) Trudeau’s hair very menacing”

Joe Biden to Bernie Sanders: “For a socialist, you’ve got a lot more confidence in corporate America than I do.”

Bernie Sanders: “It goes without saying that we must — and will — defeat Trump, the most dangerous president in the history of this country.”

Kamala Harris: “But the bottom line is this, Donald Trump in office on trade policy, you know, he reminds me of that guy in “The Wizard of Oz,” you know, when you pull back the curtain, it’s a really small dude?”

Amy Klobuchar: “What [Trump] has done here, has assessed these tariffs on our allies, he’s put us in the middle of the trade war and treating our farmers and workers like poker chips in one of his bankrupt casinos.”

Pete Buttigieg: “Well, the president clearly has no strategy. You know, when I first got into this race, I remember president Trump scoffed and said he’d like to see me make a deal with Xi Jinping. I’d like to see him making a deal with XI Jinping. Is it just me or was that supposed to happen in like April?”

Julian Castro to Joe Biden: “Barack Obama’s vision was not to leave 10 million people uncovered. He wanted every single person in this country covered. My plan would do that, your plan would not.”

Elizabeth Warren: “I was in the United States Senate when 54 Senators said, ‘let’s do background checks, let’s get rid of assault weapons’ and with 54 Senators, it failed because of the filibuster. Until we attack the systemic problems, we can’t get gun reform in this country.”

Beto O’Rourke: “We’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.”

Andrew Yang: “My campaign will now give a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to 10 American families”

Yes, we have literally gotten to the point where presidential candidates are trying to win votes by offering cash handouts.  If he wins the election, Yang is promising to give $1,000 a month to everyone in America.  Back during the founding of our nation, Benjamin Franklin warned that this would happen someday

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.”

Apparently Andrew Yang decided that he can’t wait until he is president to start handing out free cash, and his unusual announcement is making headlines all over the country.

While doing research for this article, I discovered that the Yang campaign has already begun running ads for this cash giveaway, and I was curious so I clicked on one of the ads.

I learned that you don’t have to actually donate any money to his campaign to qualify for the contest, and you don’t even have to be a Democrat to participate.

So I signed up.

If Andrew Yang wants to financially support my work for an entire year, I will gladly take his money.

Of course what I believe is diametrically opposed to just about everything he believes, and so he probably won’t be too thrilled if I win.

Personally, I think that Yang is making a mistake with his proposal to offer every American $1,000 a month if he becomes president.  With the cost of living these days, $1,000 a month doesn’t really go that far.

If he really wanted to get votes, he should have set the bar higher.  $5,000 a month would really start to get a lot of people excited, and $10,000 a month would be even better.

Yes, if we could all get $10,000 a month from the federal government each month we could all retire and nobody would ever have to work again and we could all spend our days frolicking in our new socialist utopia.

Isn’t that how it is supposed to work?

Sadly, our politicians seem to get more disconnected from the real world with each passing day.  We are 22 trillion dollars in debt, our nation is falling apart all around us, and we are rapidly steamrolling toward oblivion.

But most Americans continue to fall for the con game that our political system has become, and so the endless parade of clowns will continue.

  1. Harris is of course trying to refer to the actual “Wizard of Oz”, the namesake of the book and movie of the same name. Her cultural deficit is showing here. She only thinks of the Wizard as a “small dude”, which I suppose of street talk of some kind. Then again, perhaps she was thinking about Mayor Willie Brown, whom she serviced on her knees for several years, providing her with her first break in politics. In either event, she is a clown of the first order.

    • i honestly believe that we could elect all of these people to be president at the same time and not one good idea would come out of them put together. Ms president Harris how will you tackle trade and her answer would be who cares all i know is i hate trump and he is a small dude. Corey Booker would be assigned to be Justin Trudeau’s hair dresser, Bernie Sanders is angry with the world and when he goes to the bathroom he looks down at the turd and starts yelling that i know that’s you trump going undercover in my toilet bowl so crazy Bernie would be on toilet duty watching for Trump to pop out and Elizabeth Warren would be his vice president in charge of angry people watching the toilet. . The guy promising to give away 1000.00 per month to 12 families is good at giving away other peoples money because he said it will come from his campaign . Beto O’rourke would be in charge of making sure only criminals have guns. And the rest of these clowns would be assigned to making sure Joe Biden puts his underwear on correctly every morning. That debate reminded me of watching Gilligan’s island only Gilligan would be considered a genius on that stage with those people.

      • What is scary is that you are exactly right. The cultural-Marxist educational system has brainwashed most of the kids into believing they are victims and somebody else should be doing things/giving them something.

        Trump may lose, as he is not promising enough…..especially to the big city/bureaucrat/pseudo intellectual types from State U (they know it all)!!

    • The ten combined couldn’t do the job that Trump has done! They are so pathetic and moronic that I cringe just thinking what would happen to our country if one of the became president! And I would like to know just how is Trump destroying our country! Stupid people say stupid things!

  2. They are like grade school children running for class president by promising free candy for a vote . In my lifetime i have never seen a group of people embarrass themselves and show how stupid that they think the American voter is than this clown circus. If our countries future weren’t at stake this would be the best situation comedy to hit the airwaves in years but then reality sets in and i say “WOW” these fools are serious about dismantling America and all of the good our country stands for.

  3. Wake-up America ! USA!USA!USA! Trump 2020 all the way!
    How in hell did a radical Muslim get vetted or even elected to a government position???
    In 1952 Islam was banned from America but in 1992 Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and others changed it to where Muslims can be elected to government offices, WTH happened to change it?
    Now we have Ellison, Omar, Harris, Tlaib to name a few straight out are promoting Islam/Sharia Law !

    • Kamala has plenty of talent, come on!!!

      Ron Jeremy has offered to give her a huge contact to perform at one of his studios, with any constituent of her choice!!

      Talk about doing things for your constituency, wow!!!

  4. It would seem to me that “Camel’s” small dude reference and other seemingly out-of-place remarks could be attributed to a Joint, just before the Clown Show?

  5. 1; I thought Harris was doped up on something. You know how pot makes everything funny . . .
    2; Buttigieg is obviously the bottom in his relationship. He looked like a teenager who forgot his homework . . .
    3; I’m sure Booker finds Trudeau sexy, and he’s just deflecting. He’s not in the race to be President anyway; just like DeBla-bla-sio, it’s more about recognition and donations.
    4; Bidden IS senile. There’s no two-ways about it. If he is selected as the demonrat can’tidate, just watch who is selected as his running mate. I’m sure it will be a woman ‘of color’ guaranteed to be a Socialist, so when he kicks the bucket in office (if Trump could be defeated), we will end up with Socialism as the order of the day, every day.
    5; Yang; “You can’t buy me love, love” . . . It’s MY MONEY, stupid!
    6; Castro proved he really is related to the most famous dictator in our hemisphere . . .
    7; Warren has no clue where money really comes from. Someone should check to see if she has a money fairy locked up in the basement, or a money tree in the back yard . . .
    8; Klobuchar — WHO? WHAT?
    9; Sanders. He’s just angry he got shafted by Hitlery, and now it’s just too late. He has a lot of big money backers, but no voters. I wonder if some of his money comes from the Clinton Foundation as payment or retribution for rubbing him out of the 2016 campaign?
    10; Butto O’Rourke: Will never get elected in Texas again, for sure . . . He actually came prepared to make some money though. See his new T-shirt?
    Like another post said. All ten combined could not hold a candle to Donald J Trump!

  6. What’s Trudeau’s hair got to do with anything in the US? He’s from Canada and should stay win his government provided living quarters.

  7. W T F IS THIS A CIRCUS OR WHAT NO CANDIDATE FOR THE DEMS THESE PEOPLE ARE SO OUT OF TOUCH HOW DID THEY EVEN GET TO WHERE THEY ARE NOW PEOPLE wake up you really want these colons running the country ….TRUMP IS A SAFER AND SANER PICK TRUMP 2020 NO MORE CLOWNS IN THE GOVERNMENT……

  8. As I look at the Democratic 2020 candidates one thought comes to mind: The “Cantina” scene from the original Star Wars movie. In fact the only things missing are the “Wookie” and the “3 boobed Alien”.

  9. All of these assholes have shit for brains. They are dumber than dog shit. No one will vote for any of these idiots for president. They all make Trump’s reelection job easier.

  10. The dumboshits. What little people to think American’s want to be communist scuz. And destroy due process,and our bill of rights. All on,a,fear agenda. MOLON LABE drunk boy beto. You must be drunk if you think anyone is going,to follow you
