Sanders, Warren, and Buttegieg remain standing. The rest should just drop out now — especially that hack douchebag Delaney. How Williamson made the stage is a stain on the Democrats.
The framing of the questions was extremely concerning for how the media will affect narratives during the election. But many of the candidates pushed back to get to the core of their messages which was encouraging.
Williamson speaks almost entirely in slogans and new age platitudes. Clearly there is no there there. I honestly think she’s getting some Russian support in hopes that keeping her in the race will peel off support from the eventual Dem nominee.
I am terrified by how many people I’m seeing praise her performance today. It’s reminiscent of Trump & debates – the bar is set so low that when she doesn’t say something completely batshit, people think she did amazingly.
