    In audio of the post-debate exchange between 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released by CNN on Wednesday, both candidates accused each other of throwing around accusations of dishonesty on national TV. Warren said, “I think you called me a liar on national TV.” Sanders responded, “You know, let’s not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion.”

    In a tense and dramatic exchange in the moments after the Democratic debate Tuesday night, Elizabeth Warren accused Bernie Sanders of calling her a liar on national television. Sanders responded that it was Warren who called him a liar and said they should not talk about it right then. When the CNN/Des Moines Register debate concluded, the studio audience and viewers saw Warren walk over to Sanders and not shake his outstretched hand. The two senators seemed to have a heated and brief exchange before Sanders appeared to throw his hands up, turn and walk away. The video of the...

    Ron Reagan’s advertisement for the Freedom From Religion Foundation was the clear winner of the CNN/Des Moines Register Democratic presidential primary debate, according to several Twitter users. Tuesday night's event was criticized for being “low energy,” but one commercial that reappeared several times kept viewers entertained. The Freedom From Religion Foundation ran an advertisement featuring Reagan, who is the son of President Ronald Reagan, proudly declaring that he’s not afraid of “burning in hell.” “Hi, I’m Ron Reagan, an unabashed atheist, and I’m alarmed by the intrusions of religion into our secular government,” Reagan says in the opening of the...

    The final Democratic presidential debate before the pivotal Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses turned tense Tuesday night, as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren sparred over the disputed reports that Sanders had privately told Warren in December 2018 that a woman could not realistically become president. “Well as a matter of fact I didn’t say it," Sanders insisted, after one of the CNN debate's moderators asserted the conversation had occurred. "That is correct," he said later, when asked whether he was unequivocally denying that the conversation took place.

    Billionaire and presidential candidate Tom Steyer saw a boost in search traffic on Google during this year’s first Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday night — partly thanks to his tie. During the debate, Steyer appeared onstage donning a red and yellow plaid tie, a fashion choice that failed to go unnoticed on social media after hawk-eyed Twitter users pointed out a number of past public instances in which the candidate has appeared to don similar ties.
  • BERNIE SANDERS RAISES $1 MILLION ON DEBATE DAY, WHILE TRUMP GETS $10 MILLION OVER TWO DAYS AFTER IMPEACHMENT VOTE

    The campaign of President Donald Trump reported it had received $10 million in donations in the 48 hours after Wednesday's impeachment vote, while the campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders say they raised more than $1 million on Thursday, the day of the final Democratic debate of 2019. An official with the Trump campaign claimed the fundraising bounty was the result of a backlash caused by Wednesday's vote, which resulted in the House impeaching the president on two articles. Trump has consistently portrayed himself as a victim of a "witch hunt" during the impeachment process, claiming it would boost his chances...

    The Democratic National Committee raised the bar on Friday for the next presidential debate. If candidates want to appear on the stage January 14, they will need to prove higher poll numbers, and more donors, than at any time throughout this election cycle. It will be the first debate of 2020 and the final one before the Iowa Caucuses. Candidates must reach 5% in at least four polls, or 7% in two polls in the early-voting states - Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina or Nevada. The polls need to have taken place between November 14 and January 10. The campaigns...

    Long-simmering tensions boiled over at Thursday night's 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate in Los Angeles, as a blunt one-on-one sparring match erupted between Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren over their fundraising -- just minutes after businessman Andrew Yang slammed Democrats' "obsession" with President Trump and impeachment. Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, began the fiery exchange by criticizing Buttigieg's recent lavish fundraiser in Napa, Calif., saying he was cavorting with "billionaires in wine caves" -- prompting Buttigieg to retort that Warren, a multimillionaire, was a populist in name only. "You know, according to Forbes magazine, I'm literally the only person...

    Toward the beginning of Thursday's Democratic presidential primary debate, the seven candidates went after the current state of the economy, something the President Trump has repeatedly lauded during his presidency. Former Vice President Joe Biden said that despite the growing economy, the middle class was suffering. "The middle class is getting killed; the middle class is getting crushed," former Vice President Joe Biden argued. "The working class has no way up, as a consequence of that," he added. Biden also cited a statistic, saying that 40 percent of the farmers in the Midwest couldn't pay their bills last year. Pete...

    LOS ANGELES - A relatively small lineup of seven Democratic presidential contenders will take the stage for a debate on Thursday, one day after the House of Representatives made Republican Donald Trump the third president in U.S. history to be impeached. But the debate’s timing, coming a week before the holidays and amid the impeachment fireworks in Washington, could reduce the audience and the benefits for Democratic candidates seeking a boost ahead of the first nominating contest in Iowa on Feb. 3. The sixth debate in the race to pick a Democratic challenger to Trump in the November 2020 election...

    Controversy continues to roil this week’s upcoming Democratic presidential primary debate in Los Angeles amid an ongoing labor dispute, anger over the tightening qualification standards and discontent with Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez. The debate, which was originally slated to be held at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), was moved to Loyola Marymount University after AFSCME Local 3299 — the union representing more than 25,000 University of California service and patient technical care workers — and the state school forced UCLA to inform the Democrats and its media partners to abandon plans to host the debate at...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, announced late Monday that she won't be attending the Democrats' next debate "regardless" of whether she qualifies. Gabbard, who previously flirted with the idea of skipping an earlier debate, appeared more assertive about bowing out of the upcoming debate being hosted by PBS and Politico on Dec. 19. "For a number of reasons, I have decided not to attend the December 19th 'debate' — regardless of whether or not there are qualifying polls," Gabbard tweeted. "I instead choose to spend that precious time directly meeting with and hearing from the people of New Hampshire and South...

    Major political party leaders in Britain participated in a debate on climate change, but two were noticeably missing -- and replaced. Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the Conservative Party and leader of the Brexit Party Nigel Farage were not on the stage for Thursday night's Channel 4 debate. Channel 4's editor, Ben de Pear, said the ice sculptures were a "visual metaphor" after the two declined invitations to attend. "These two ice sculptures represented the emergency on planet earth, not in any human form but were a visual metaphor for the Conservative and Brexit parties after their leaders declined our...

    Polls are relatively finicky but a new one from Great Britain shows Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Tories are in a good spot to win the election. Via Bloomberg/Yahoo: Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party is on track to win its biggest majority in more than three decades, according to the most hotly anticipated poll of the general election campaign.The Tories will win a majority of 68 seats in the Dec. 12 election, according to a YouGov poll which used a technique that more closely predicted the 2017 election than standard surveys. Such a majority would allow Johnson to deliver...

    An occasionally funny SNL skit on the latest Democrat debate. The good part is there was no Trump bashing, or even conservative bashing for that matter. All the comedy and mockery was directed at the Dem candidates (which shouldn't be hard) even though the ridicule was directed at their personal shortcomings rather than their policy shortcomings.

    Of all the candidates at Wednesday night's MSNBC Democratic presidential debate, Andrew Yang spoke the least. Someone had to speak the least, but Yang is upset that it was him. But far be it from me to stick up for MSNBC. In a series of tweets, Yang outlined his grievances against the network. Yang said he was asked by MSNBC to appear on their network this weekend, but Yang told the network he would do so only after his list of demands was met. Yang wants an official on-air apology from the network, he wants his campaign included in discussions,...
