  • La Mar Post author

    Amy can win the presidency with her ethics and her straight shooting common sense Midwestern values. Thank you Lawrence for presenting this street fighter to MSNBC viewers.

  • David Gerabagi Post author

    Andrew Yang did not take the bait either… Oh wait this is MSNBC they wouldn't EVER mention his name…

    She's doing her best Hillary Clinton impression and is failing miserably.

  • Bonnie Robinson Post author

    Totally agree that America needs paper ballots as back up. Also impressed that she stands up to Lindsey Graham. This man is a giant kiss up to Trump.

  • Denyze Post author

    Listen to Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, and Julian Castro.
    The candidates with credibility, intelligence, and integrity are coming to the fore.
    We must clear the candidacy field of the distracting noise.

  • Mum MoniQ Post author

    Well done Senator Amy!

  • Denyze Post author

    Well done Lawrence. CNN set the candidates up to abuse each other and support Trump’s campaign.
    We need the Elizabeth Warrens, Amy Klobuchars, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg …
    The candidates who stand for integrity, intelligence, peace, respectful behaviour.
    Most important is the ability to debate and negotiate effectively, not by naming, shaming, and blaming.
    We do not need dog fights and other trumpian nonsense.

    I SWEAR TO GOD THE FIRST MINUTE OF HIM SPEAKING ABOUT THE DEBATE I THOUGHT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT #BERNIE OR #WARREN SINCE EVERYONE NOTICED THE TWO REFUSED TO PLAY THIS GAME (HE IS PLAYING NOW) OF PUTTING CANDIDATES AGAINST EACH OTHER ! THE ONLY TWO #PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATES UNDENIABLY WON THE NIGHT DESPITE MULTIPLE TIMES THE MODERATORS TRIED TO TRAP THEM CLEARLY . BUT (MS… NBC ) STILL IGNORES THAT FACT . #PATHETIC 😂🖕🏼

    If Sen. Klobuchar is not successful in attaining the nomination this cycle, I hope that she will be looked at to take over the Leadership of the Senate from Chuck Schumer. She's just a really talented legislator.

    Senator Klobuchar has integrity. The orange sleaze bag in the oval office has none. Trump lies and tries to cover his lies with more lies. I am going to vote for a woman of integrity – Senator Amy Klobuchar. The orange conman might get a orange prison jump suit to camouflage his sleaziness? I can only hope.

    Wait – Did Yang attack anyone? I did not watch, but I thought I heard he did not attack anyone else. Am I wrong?

  • Raymond Hinds Post author

    Amy needs to go…. I initially wanted her to run, but she has really let me down with her MODERATE policies. I am voting for a PROGRESSIVE candidate.

  • Indigo Speaker Post author

    Sanders has been the one too good to dive into personal arguments and attacks, since before most of us were born. Now that it's finally at the level where he has to call opponents out as the corporate-funded shills that they are, you want to compliment somebody who "didn't debate". Yeah, right. Let's talk about Sanders, his trustworthy and consistent voting record and views over several decades, his ongoing mission for real universal healthcare (not the fake bills with stolen nomenclature being offered by other democraps), fair taxation practices, civil liberties and other things that we actually care about…. no? Guess msnbc is trying to force our priorities rather than responding to them…

  • Zoe Mavaega Post author

    Thank you Mr. Lawrence for pointing out some of CNN's menacing strategies. Best of luck to Klobuchar.

  • madhabitz Post author

    I like Senator Klobuchar a lot. I'm really happy that you've made a point to let people know how good she was in the debate. She's got real-world skills to do the job at hand.

    She doesn't have "It Factor" that some of the others might have, but boy, when she speaks she does it with authority. I'm certain that I don't need-no danged It Factor. She has credibility I need in a U.S. Presidential candidate, credibility that has been missing with the current goon in the WH.

    She may be a street fighter, as you say, but the difference between her and someone like Kamala is that Senator Klobuchar doesn't fight dirty. I'm pretty certain that I'm not the only one to be sick and tired of that kind of thing.

  • Kris Reinertson Post author

    It's not accurate that she was the only candidate who didn't attack other candidates. Andrew Yang also did not attack other candidates. As mentioned, do your homework while watching the debates. Don't just rely on the talking points provided by the candidate appearing on your show.

    Andrew Yang is the only candidate offering a compelling counter-narrative to Trump's "immigrants are stealing our jobs" BS that convinced enough blue-collar workers to win him the election. Yang: ”Immigrants are being scapegoated for issues they have nothing to do within our economy."

  • Christine Post author

    Amy Klobuchar needs more air time. Thank you Senator!

  • Cyd Oman Post author

    Is Mitch McConnell getting special tax help under tax expenditures regulations? Special tax exemptions are given to help increase the use of private resources to accomplish tasks government would normally have to take on itself and usually support charitable and social functions. So why in 2015 were tax expenditures reflecting tax exemptions for businesses like McConnel's that breed and raise and sell race horses?

    Race horsing has lost its audience in the last two to three decades. It was popular in the 1940s and 1950s, but most racing tracks have closed down for lack of business. Why would the IRS think that raising race horses has so much value to social and charitable causes it merits special carve outs from being taxed like everything else?

    Trump chats with Putin frequently (yesterday). I ask, How does this register with trump supporters, are they so naive to think they discuss the weather? Trump is betraying America. GOOD for Amy's election security efforts! Great !! Let your legislators help push it through…CALL THEM.

  • Wynstan'sMom Post author

    "The work that the Viewer has do"…yes because the games people play are getting old and so are the players.

    I listen to Senator Klobuchar and I think she has good ideas, opinions and has taken action based on her decisions
    and values.
    It is difficult for a woman to sound strong without invoking feelings from people. "Mom is Mad so I am not safe"…

    People should hear one message and say it three times.
    People remember how you make them feel.

    I wish you well, Senator Klobuchar and may I suggest whichever female candidate wins the presidency, please consider Mayor Pete as your running mate.
    It might be nice to have a married man who fought for his country and attends his church and gives back to his community and wants to continue to serve his country, for a change.
    But real change needs a woman. We know better than to throw out the baby with the bathwater.
    Hoo ah! Stay safe, Fourth Estate. We need you.

  • Alain Post author

    I dont get why we should respect her for the fact that she didn't atack the other democrats on stage. It's called a debate you should make your case otherwise you showing us that you can't fight.

  • Scott Lilien Post author

    My Pick for President of the United States is Amy Klobuchar. I strongly feel if the Russians can use Social Media for their propaganda machine I might as well get my word in, especially since I belong to this country.

    I think only Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar can win the 2020 presidential election using the electoral college as their pathway to get there. She only attacks Trump, not her fellow candidates or President Obama. She is grounded, measured and a little boring, but her track record is her calling card. She also doesn't subscribe to the far left leanings of Sanders, Warren and the new found social Agenda of Kamala Harris. As much as I like Joe Biden I would prefer to have a woman president. She is the perfect moderate who can win the vital states needed to take the presidency from the Racist Russian-in Chief, Donald Trump and his enabler Moscow Mitch.

  • Bottle40 Post author

    The media and trump supporters sugarcoat the situation. Trump is guilty and stupid period. He blocks everything and he shouldn't be able too. Anybody innocent would not care if they were being investigated. They would say, "Have at it Boss". I hope the next election all republicans get swept out of office.

  • Larry Hudson Post author

    Amy has class, and a solid powerful sense of being, unwilling to attack her fellow Dems while debating but addressing the real issue:: Donald Trump, Harris and Booker could learn from her, I personally have ruled voting them in due to their selfish cheap shots to advance losing positions in the race. Especially Harris who seems unable to take a shot or stand earned criticism. Her past jobs as a prosecutor was less than Sterling and when facing a critique she went low stating her critic wasn't on her level, but by that stance her mouth should have been superglue shut when she attack Biden for things she had similar or same as feelings about a 49 yr old issue, and n i t to lo we the fact she has attacked Obama and the ACA, a now well loved help to milliones of citizens including me.

This woman lied he did not call the people rats you liar's he said the town was full of rubbish on the streets and thousands of houses are left empty, they couldn't stand to live in their houses. The Town is full of rats and rotting garbage try telling the truth. This women on here. Mueller is a liar, they have been doing it for years stop talking rubbish. This woman is so weak, no one cares what you think democrats are such liars. Look at this woman is so boring she is such a boring talker, they are illegals let theit country look after them not America their country is not a war. This woman talks crap she does run down the President and Senator Graham, the Democrats keep loosing and they hate it. Could you imagine this little weed of a woman taking on This President. This lot of Democrats are like a travelling circus. This bird is a joke she nerds to do some grooming in her dress and her weak little speech, so shocking laughable he would tear her apart.
