OK. And don't kid yourself...we shut off their defense system, just to show them we could.


This is why Turkey wants to buy the Russian S-400 air defense system and South Korea uses both the US Patriot and Russian S-300: US made air defense weapons do not work against US planes/missiles and Russian made air defense weapons do not work against Russian planes/missiles. You never know who will attack you so the smart countries have as many defense options as possible.

So many great moments...

Buttiteg saying its insane having 11 million undocumented people with no path to citizenship never mention no healthcare.  Apparently, the established aslyum path or nearly 8 million on the family and employment wait lists should just get on a plane and get here.

Or that busing was such a wonderful solution

Or the night before with Booker acting angry and saying nothing but pablum.

I’m not really a fan but I think he’s the smartest guy on the stage by far.  He explains this in depth in his Ben Shapiro interview.

Though many think his ideas are crazy, he can probably outwit any of these clowns in an intellectual debate.

Andrew Yang says microphone was 'not on' at times during Democratic debate

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang claimed his microphone was "not on" a few times when he attempted to jump in during Thursday night's Democratic debate in Miami.

"There were also a few times, FYI, where I just started talking, being like, 'Hey, I want to add something there,' and my mic was not on," Yang said while speaking to supporters after the event. "And it's this sort of thing where, it's not like if you started talking, it takes over the [conversation]. It's like I was talking, but nothing was happening. And it was like, 'Oh f---.' So that happened a bit too."

The allegation from the tech entrepreneur comes as an analysis by The Hill shows Yang had the least amount of speaking time of all the 20 candidates who participated in the two nights of debates that took place Wednesday and Thursday.

NBC later pushed back on Yang's claims, telling The Hill "At no point during the debate was any candidate's microphone turned off or muted.”

Actually quite the opposite. Turns out even conservatives and Republicans like him. Drudge poll had him as the winner by a large margin.

Yang has massive grass-root support, and is still growing fast.

I am already in the Yang Gang so I am obviously biased. I agree with you that many people who watched his Shapiro / Joe Rogan / Dave Rubin interview came away with similar conclusion.

He has broad bi-partisan appeal.

Here is his Shaprio Interview if anyone is interested.

Forgot to add his Sam Harris interview. This is actually where I found Yang.

Yang needs to learn how to sound a bit less robotic and engage the audience better.  Every time I hear him talk, it's like he's just reading a polished script in his head.

I agree. He needs to get better with his delivery especially in short formats. If he can speak like Mayor Pete, he would be polling much higher.

But I think people who are willing to listen to his hour long interview can easily get pass this because he has a lot of substance. This is the challenge for him.

unfortunately for yang, people do not have the attention span to watch multiple hour long interviews.  he may be a smart guy, but he lacks charisma that trump has and the ability to connect with people.  4chan online polls only get you so far.  the good thing for yang is that joe "my time is up" biden is falling flat on his face, so that opens up the playing field a bit more for unsung heroes.

... but he lacks charisma that trump has ...

Whoah whoah whoah. I had to re-read this twice.

Okay, now I know you are biased.

I tend to think myself as neutral because some things that Trump is doing I like, others no so much... but the last word I would use to describe Trump is "charisma".
