10:43 – Thanks for following tonight folks. Like I said, the winners were Williamson and Warren, and the loser is Bernie. This is the beginning of the end of his campaign, and the beginning of the rise of her’s. Vote for Pocahontas if you’re an independent who wants Trump to win. See ya tomorrow night for Round 2.
10:42 – Left wingers like Bernie are so used to calling people they disagree with racist, sexist, AND homophobic. I get why they’d wrongly call Trump a racist, but name one thing he’s ever done that’s remotely homophobic. Just one. They literally just make shit up as they go along and lump in all the phobias together.
10:40 – Pocahontas – “I wanted to become a school teacher.” Yea, but then she realized that being a school teacher is a full time job and doesn’t pay that much. Why do that when you can teach one class at Boston College and make $400,000 a year? What an absolute fraud.
10:39 – Good Lord, Mayor Pete is whining about how bad the economy is. Bruh, it’s the lowest unemployment rate of my lifetime. You can’t just make shit up. We got Google and shit now.
10:38 – Beto keeps saying he’s going to win the 38 electoral votes in Texas. He lost by 5 points to the most unpopular Senator in the country in that state. But yea, he’s gonna beat Trump there.
10:36 – Amy Klobuchar isn’t going to win the nomination and Trump is going to win her state and New Hampshire. Every other state will remain the same.
10:30 – The “winners” of tonight’s debates are Marianne Williamson and Elizabeth Warren, both of who will rise in the polls. The loser is Bernie, who looks ridiculous. Everyone else continues to be irrelevant. By “winner” I don’t mean that they did anything particularly good. It just means they pandered the most and got the most applause.
10:25 – Jake Tapper is right to ask about Bernie’s age. He and Biden are extremely old and look and act like it. Trump is hopped up on adderrall and tanning beds, and has the energy of a college freshman. If you want to beat him you need to match his energy, or else you’ll end up like Jeb Bush.
10:18 – John Hickenlooper doesn’t want to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan because it’s a humanitarian issue. Fuck off you war mongering douche.
10:16 – Donald Trump has avoided several foreign conflicts, and for the first time in my adult life I don’t have to worry about my friends being deployed to fight in some third world shithole. Every democrat so far questioned about foreign policy has basically had to admit that Trump has done a fantastic job in this regard.
10:12 – Just realized this shitshow is going for 3 hours. God save us all.
10:10 – These idiots want me to pay for free tuition so a bunch of dumbass 18 year olds can be brainwashed by radical leftists. Nah.
10:04 – Pocahontas wants universal Pre-K, daycare, college, etc. Don’t be fooled, all this means is she wants the government to take care of your crotch fruits, and mold them as they see fit, from the moment they are born. The real solution is creating wealth in this country, via a healthy economy, so that parents can either afford to pay for childcare, or afford to have one parent working and the other at home.
10:02 – Mayor Pete “Scripture says that we have to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.” HAHAHHAHAHAHA!! You can’t make this shit up.
9:59 – This will be the moment in the debate that everyone in the media will be talking about tomorrow. Pocahontas promised an absurd, taxpayer funded giveaway, and yelled at a bald guy who said this wasn’t a plausible idea. The media will prop this up as the defining moment of the debate, which is why she will win the nomination.
Warren Zings Delaney: Why Run For President Just To ‘Talk About What We Really Can’t Do And Shouldn’t Fight For’ https://t.co/vc57VxbTCZ

9:55 – If I were running a debate there would be a gong. And the gong would ring every time a candidate started off by telling an anecdote, or a question was asked about something as boring as trade. No one gives a shit about trade. Just talk about racism. That’s all anyone cares about.
9:50 – Thank God for Don Lemon. I hope they never stop talking about reparations. Video update.
9:47 – Marianne Williamson’s appeal has completely warn off. She was funny when she was talking about meeting Trump on the battlefield of love. Now she’s talking about spending $100 billion in reparations. Hard pass.
9:46 – God I hope democrats run on a platform of reparations. This is easily the most unpopular thing they could possibly run on. The idea that I owe Will Smith’s kid’s money because my ancestors came here from Ireland is absolute madness.
9:45 – Beto just promised reparations to black people and the audience cheered. This is the democratic party.
9:44 – Amy Klobuchar wouldn’t last five minutes in Baltimore. It’s pinnacle elitist white privilege to say that Baltimore doesn’t have a rat problem when she’s never even been there.
9:43 – Mayor Pete – “If you walk into a waiting room and you are black you are less likely to get healthcare.” They’re just making shit up at this point. Mayor Pete realized that being an adult will get him nowhere in this party. He has to make shit up.
9:41 – Elizabeth Warren just promised billions of dollars in free shit to black people. This is the definition of pandering. It’s also why she’s going to win the nomination.
9:39 – Trump didn’t say send her back about Omar because she’s a woman of color. He said she could go back, fix her shitty country, and then let us know how to fix our’s. God I hope they try to make that dreadful woman the face of their party.
9:37 – Race in America is the topic. This will be good.
9:32 – I know I’ve said this a couple times already in this blog, but people like Hickenlooper, Bullock, and Ryan would be a serious threat to President Trump. They know exactly how to appeal to blue collar people in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan, and those are the people who will control the election. Bernie and Pocahontas cannot do that. Sadly for the democrats the people who can actually beat Trump have no shot of getting to Trump.
9:30 – It’s pretty clear from the eye rolls from other candidates tonight that they’re all sick of Bernie Sanders act. The jig is up. He is so full of shit and they all know it.
9:29 – Bernie Sanders – “I’m sick of democrats who are afraid of big ideas.” He’s about to blow a gasket because there’s too many adults in the room tonight.
9:27 – Genuinely disappointed that we’re an hour and a half into this and no one has brought up the critical issue of taxpayer funded abortions for transgender illegal immigrants.
9:25 – These people act like climate change is going to kill us all. It’s such nonsense. Not a single person up there actually loses any sleep over climate change.
9:20 – Bernie, just like many others, wants to “cancel” student debt. But the banks will need to be repaid, and the government will write the check for it. “Cancel student debt” means that taxpayers cover the gender studies degrees for Hampshire College graduates. It’s such horse shit.
9:18 – Again, John Delaney says adult stuff about not promising free giveaways. Pocahontas responds by virtue signaling about how people like him shouldn’t run for President. Easily the biggest applause of the night. This is why she’s going to win the nomination.
9:16 – Elizabeth Warren – “I took on a popular Republican Senator and beat him.” Bragging about winning as a democrat in Massachusetts is the least impressive thing you can possibly brag about.
9:13 – Again, Hickenlooper is an adult. Calls out Bernie for waving his hands around and yelling about free shit. There’s a reason no one has heard of him before, and why he’s polling at less than 1%
9:06 – Halftime report. Winner of the debate so far – Donald Trump.
9:01 – I cannot wait until this one eventually runs for President. It’s gonna be so, so awesome.
Medicare for All is single-payer healthcare. That’s it. That’s the policy.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 31, 2019
9:00 – All this talk about school shootings reminds me, remember when David Hogg was a thing? Good times.
8:54 – Bullock, Delaney, Ryan, and Hickenlooper are by far the most sensible person on the stage tonight. There’s a reason none of them are polling at over 1%. Democrats have no use for people like this.
8:53 – Bernie said that we need to rebuild not only America, but Honduras and Guatemala. We have given Honduras over $300 million in the last two years. Source. What return have we gotten on that investment?
8:51 – Bernie just said that people who came here by walking 1,000 miles are by definition not criminals. That is by far the stupidest thing ever said on television.
8:49 – Pocahontas said she wants to decriminalize illegal border crossings. Her people know a thing or two about people invading their land.
8:44 – Here’s a question Jake Tapper should ask every candidate – would you choose to live in the West Side of Baltimore? If not, why not?
8:43 – Bernie said “damn,” he’s so hard core. What a bad ass.
8:42 – All Bernie Sanders does is yell about how awesome Canada is. If you’re over 25 and you’re still fooled by this conman you are a very, very stupid person.
8:40 – Marianne Williamson is by far the most entertaining presidential candidate in history. I could listen to her read me books or teach me about life virtues all day.
8:35 – Jake Tapper is killing the game right now. Total MVP. Literally just finding differences between candidates on issues and basically saying, “Hey, Beto was talking mad shit about your plan. Wudup wit dat?”
8:32 – “Mayor Pete, will you raise taxes on the middle class in order to fund Medicare for all?”
“Let me tell you about how awesome my heathcare plan is gonna be.”
These people are so full of shit.
8:30 – Whenever your solution is that the rich are going to pay for everything, it means you don’t have a solution. Rich people are rich because they can hire accountants to find every loophole possible. It’s juvenile and childish to believe that making them pay for everything will solve all our problems.
8:28 – Why is the bald guy from King of the Hill getting so much camera time?
8:26 – Imagine being so stupid and naive that you believed anything that Bernie Sanders says is real? Must be a dreadful existence.
8:24 – Pocahontas is going to be the candidate when it’s all said and done. And that my friends, is a great thing. Picture anyone in middle America listening to this horrible, shrill woman and being energized to vote. Beautiful thing.
8:23 – I’m on record for saying that Mayor Pete was the only adult in this race. First thing he does is echo AOC’s nonsense about the world ending in 12 years. A number that never seems to get smaller despite time passing by. So I was wrong again.
8:21 – Weird to see Beto speaking English at a debate.
8:19 – John Hickenlooper just said that he wasn’t here to offer everyone free shit. So that’s the end of his chances.
8:15 – Debate finally starts. Notice that one douchebag Tim Ryan either forgot to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem, or did it on purpose to try to get woke points. My bet is on the latter.
Round 2 of the Democratic debates starts tonight at 9 PM, which can only mean one thing – LIVE BLOG from Uncle Turtleboy! Throughout the debate I’ll be updating this blog on TB Daily News with my thoughts about what’s happening. I’ll be doing this in lieu of the regularly scheduled YouTube/podcast. So keep hitting the refresh button on that link to keep up with the hot takes. Tonight has Bernie, Pocahontas, AND Marianne Williamson, so you know it’s gonna be entertaining. See ya then.
