Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders slammed the Democratic debate format during a recent interview this week; calling the process “demeaning” to both presidential candidates and the American people.
“What they are is a reality tv show in which you have to come up with a soundbite and all that stuff,” he said. “It’s demeaning to the candidates and it’s demeaning to the American people. You can’t explain the complexity of health care in America in 45 seconds, nobody can.”
“What it encourages people to do is come up with soundbites and do absurd things,” Sanders said. “If I yell and scream on this show and took my clothes off, it would get a lot of publicity, right? If you give a thoughtful answer to a complicated question, it’s not so sexy for the media.”

Recent polling from the key primary state of New Hampshire may spell big trouble for Joe Biden, with Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren making major gains months before voters head to the polls.
According to the latest survey from Suffolk University-Boston Globe, Biden leads the Democratic field with 21%, followed by Sanders at 17% and Warren at 14%.
That’s a 5% bump for both candidates since the second round of presidential debates.
“Sen. Kamala Harris is in fourth place at 8 percent support, followed by South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 6 percent and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) at 3 percent. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) is at 1 percent support and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke registered zero percent support,” reports The Hill.
The survey comes days after another national showed Biden maintaining a healthy lead over his Democratic challengers.
“Standing in contrast to the first set of Democratic debates, this week’s matchups did little to immediately impact potential Democratic primary voters’ preferences for president,” states a new poll from Morning Consult.
“Thirty-two percent of Democratic primary voters said they still want to see former Vice President Joe Biden at the top of the party’s 2020 ticket, according to new Morning Consult polling conducted after the Tuesday and Wednesday debates in Detroit. That figure hasn’t shifted much since the end of the first round of debates, when 33 percent said Biden was their first choice,” adds the survey.
Following Biden is Bernie Sanders at 18%, Elizabeth Warren at 15%, and Kamala Harris at 10%.

BAD BUSINESS: Home Depot Founders Say Bernie Sanders is the ‘Enemy of Every Entrepreneur’ in America
Home Depot founders Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone spoke with Fox Business this week; saying Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is the biggest “enemy of every entrepreneur” in the United States.
“Do you get annoyed when you have big old targets, not specifically on you, but that the rich, all these Democratic candidates, to a man and woman, they single out guys like you as, this is what has happened to capitalism. Unfair,” asked host Neil Cavuto.
“Bernie Sanders is out today with a plan that will tax Wall Street trades pennies on the dollar. But it’s a start to pay for, among other things, college debt and maybe free college down the road,” he added.
“Well, look, don’t bring up Bernie Sanders, because that’s a red flag in front of me, because he’s the enemy of every entrepreneur that’s ever going to be born in this country and has been born in the past,” said Marcus. “Our kids today don’t learn Western civilization. They don’t learn history. History repeats itself. You see things happening over and over again.”

Sanders continued his calls for free public college and the elimination of student debt Monday; asking his fellow Americans if they were “truly free to pursue their dreams.”
“Are you truly free if you graduate hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt? Are you free if you cannot pursue your dream because you don’t make enough to cover your student loan payments? We will #CancelStudentDebt because there is no freedom without economic freedom,” asked Sanders on social media.

Sanders unveiled his latest proposal Monday to cancel the nation’s entire student loan debt; a move economists say will cost more than $1.6 trillion for American taxpayers.
“Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will propose on Monday eliminating all $1.6 trillion of student debt held in the United States, a significant escalation of the policy fight in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary two days before the candidates’ first debate in Miami,” reports the Stamford Advocate.
“Sanders is proposing that the federal government pay to wipe clean the student debt held by 45 million Americans – including all private and graduate school debt – as part of a package that also would make public universities, community colleges and trade schools tuition-free,” adds the newspaper.
Sanders confirmed last week that his socialized health care proposal will “absolutely” provide coverage to every single illegal immigrant in the United States.
“We will organize the American people around the concept that all people in this country have the right to health care, and at the end of the day, we are going to win that struggle,” said Sanders during a recent speech.
“Senator, would you include the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America?” asked the moderator.
“Absolutely. When I talk about health care being a human right, the last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings,” he fired-back.
