November 20 2019 Democrat Presidential Primary Debate 5 ANALYSIS!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - This is a filler debate. Though maybe they're all going to be like that.

I will try to make this analysis fairly quick, since the debate itself was only a little over two hours long last night, with ten candidates. (Compared to three hours and twelve candidates in October 2019's.)

From left to right, we had Cory Booker, Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Andrew Yang, and Tom Steyer. Names don't ring a bell? Check out KoopaTV's 2020 presidential debate index, which has summaries of what's going on so far. The debate was moderated by MSNBC (a more overtly liberal division of NBC) and the Washington Post.

(MS)NBC is continuing their fascination with giving Cory Booker more time than he deserves.
As well as giving Andrew Yang no time to talk.

Let me state above the fold: MSNBC has a long and continuing history of trying to black out Andrew Yang's candidacy. Naturally, this extends to how they conduct their debate.

Democrats’ Treatment of Trillionaires

Right before the debate began, I published an article about how I became a trillionaire as of that day. Thus, I was paying close attention to any mention of trillionaires. While there were dozens of millionaires and/or billionaires, there were no trillionaires. In fact, a trillion-level amount only came up a few times:
  1. Joe Biden stated that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders would raise collective government expenditures (just for healthcare, not taking into account all of their other “free” stuff plans)—and thus taxes—by 30–40 trillion dollars, though he didn't state that's over a 10-year period. Still, that's doubling the size of the federal government. 
  2. Tulsi Gabbard stated that, since the September 11 2001 attacks, regime change wars brought on by the foreign policies of George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, and President Donald John Trump (I'd say the last one is unfair since he's being attacked as much as Tulsi is for trying to put an end to the endless wars) have cost American taxpayers trillions of dollars, which could be much better served by investing in domestic expenditures.
  3. Bernie Sanders also echoed that trillions of dollars have been spent in the Middle East fighting endless wars, and that it's time to bring the troops home (but only after “working with the international community.”) and stop causing so much pain. 
Clearly, some Democrats believe that if the government will be spending trillions of dollars on things, they should consider if those things are important. Other Democrats, like Elizabeth Warren, want to spend taxpayer dollars to “take down any part of the wall on the nation's southern border”, stating, “If there are parts of the wall that are not useful in our defense, of course we should do it.” Since she also believes that border walls in general seem to be ineffective, that would mean all of it. Seems frivolous.

Other Select Topics

Kamala Harris tried to get revenge on Tulsi Gabbard for Tulsi basically ending Kamala's chances of winning the candidacy by pointing out Kamala's corrupt record as California's Attorney General.

Kamala Harris's attack line? Tulsi Gabbard spends too much time being critical of the corruption in the Democrat Party (such as Hillary Clinton, who is blatantly corrupt and has since gone totally crazy with her fear of Russia), and goes to speak on Fox News sometimes. It's been a recent trend where cowardly candidates like Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren try to mask their cowardice on appearing on Fox News as moral outrage. Simultaneously, they'll speak empty platitudes about the need to unify America.

You're not unifying America if you're scared to speak to half of it. 

Seriously, Kamala Harris attacked Tulsi Gabbard for appearing on Fox News, and then a minute or two later, stated that she will be the nominee “who can speak to all people.” But this is just a continued pattern of Kamala Harris being really stupid.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden has written off Kamala Harris so much that he forgot she existed. 

He's trying to refer to former Senator Carol Moseley Braun of Illinois, by the way. To be fair, it's unclear if Joe Biden was saying “the only black woman that's ever been elected to the United States Senate” (which would be false), “the only African-American woman that's ever been elected to the United States Senate (which would be true—Kamala Harris is black due to having a Jamaican parent, but she is not an African-American because Jamaica is in the Carribean), or, as the audio seems to suggest, a “the only Blafrican-American woman that's ever been elected to the United States Senate” (and I have no idea what the hell a Blafrican-American is supposed to be). Though he then claimed, “the first, I said the first African-American”, which is false, because he clearly said “only.”

Kamala Harris failing to articulate any kind of point and just awkwardly laughing for a while.

Later, Tulsi Gabbard got into a fight with Pete Buttigieg. Mayor Pete appears to believe that presidents should not negotiate with their adversaries in order to de-escalate tensions. That's consistent with his statements from the October debate where he appeared to support indefinite American presence in the Middle East on the belief that Americans make things better. The guy's clueless. He also wants to send American troops—with Mexican cooperation—to fight drug cartels in Mexico, sort of similar to how American troops are in the Middle East in cooperation with local governments. I suppose it's better than what President Barack Hussein Obama did with Operation Fast & Furious without anyone's cooperation.
Meanwhile, Andrew Yang, with his least amount of speaking opportunities of everyone in the debate (he was only asked four questions, as was Tulsi, as opposed to Elizabeth Warren's seven with additional follow-ups), made some of the most impactful statements, along with cool hand gestures because he was SO ready to talk in the few times he was called on. Check out his closing statement where he says the kids ain't right. It's very empathic, convincing, and compassionate:

To summarise (and make it obvious), here are the Super Contest winners for each category for this fifth debate:

  • Beauty: Tulsi Gabbard
  • Cool: Andrew Yang
  • Cute: Kamala Harris
  • Smart: Andrew Yang
  • Tough: Tulsi Gabbard

The next Democrat debate is going to be in December. Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard haven't qualified for it yet. Perhaps you should help them, unless you really want to see other (but undeserving) candidates win the rankings.

Andrew Yang was in the December debate. Tulsi was not. Read KoopaTV's analysis here.
