  1. CNN is fake news. CNN forgot how to report real news, instead CNN exploits the chosen, to increase their ratings. Looking towards the future. BERNIE 2020 💙💙💙💙🇺🇸

  2. Translation: when I go to prison I still wanna vote. Why don’t they discuss something like the homeless problem.
    This is NOT an issue. How , with all the problems we have THIS is how they waste our time and money 🤔

  3. Maybe Bernie thinks two birds one stone maybe it will help some people getting locked up to take their voting rights away and get every American involved in their democracy ?

  4. Sanders can't get a break. He shames centralized government, praises honest business owners, and still gets accused of being anti-market. He's pro-Democracy and wants to avoid going down the "slippery slope" of denying voting rights, and people still conflate him with authoritarianism. He answers multiple times the constant question "how can we afford it" and people still say he's giving "free handouts", and no he didn't say wealth taxes would pay for all his proposed programs. His policies get compared to the U.S.S.R when he is actually pushing for a Nordic Model in the U.S, which is still free market.
    I can only wait to hear the questions CNN ask Biden at the next Town Hall followed by their endless praise. Sanders for POTUS 2020.

  5. What an idiot. Sure rapists murderers child rapists sure they should be allow to vote? Democract party is going to extremely to the left and off the cliff.

  6. If you KILL someone you have taken their life and their right to vote, therefore YOUR RIGHT should also be taken away! Its CRAZY how far Left these dems have gone!

  7. CNN watchers mock Fox watchers for watching Fox. But many of the comments in this comment section compare CNN coverage to Fox coverage. Guess Fox has many viewers from the left but they just refuse to admit it. 😂

  8. This is the problem with Party voting. If you just vote for someone because he/she is in your party then you will get nuts like this in politics. Before you know it you will get their crazy ideas as laws. Very scary.

  9. Could you really imagine any news station saying "This is great. We finally got the poor terrorist in prison the right to vote". Even these actors on CNN couldn't bear that.

  10. We have more important things to do with the taxpayer's dollar than spending money on a voting system for prisoners.
    They can vote again when they get done doing their time.

  11. Give their GUNS too, 2nd amendment, eh? You want 16 year olds to vote, but take away their other right? Wow!…… Whoduthunk???

  12. Bernie has more friends in Fox than in CNN at this point😂 RIP dems are throwing away their only hope agains Trump.

  13. Most people may hate CNN who like Bernie Sanders because they do attack him relentlessly, they have plenty of subject matter to do so as well. However to get all upset because they actually have a decent opinion on allowing Prisoners the right to vote simply because they're attacking your candidate is ridiculous. There are times where I side with CNN against Trump and he was the first Republican I voted for. People need to start making decisions for themselves and not have politicians doing it for them it's like watching a bunch of blind sheep fall off a cliff.

  14. CNN should do a story about why all of their Bernie Sanders videos are downvoted so much. I guess it kind of means people disagree and want Bernie to become President. I guess it means all corporate media is trash.

  15. Bernie Sanders says Dylan roof is just as important as you are to democracy. This is how you subvert the Republic.

  16. Bernie says we need violent criminals to vote. Just like we allow African American and women to vote…. Ironically comparing them all

  17. Bernie is ridiculous but I do think if an ex con comes out of prison and proves they’ve learned the error of their mistake and are leading a normal life with a job and making relationships then they shouldn’t just be allowed to vote but in fact have their rights fully restored. Obviously this would never apply to someone serving life in prison or even on death row (and I’m not pro death penalty)

  18. America we need some new faces! We don’t need another Communist Jew who wants a ‘New World Order’ 🌎🌎🌎 ruled by 🇷🇺 Russia and that maniac Vladimir Putin!! Look 👀 at what Trump promised us! Trump promised to ‘Make America Great Again’👍👍instead, Trump made America ‘Horrible Again’👎👎Put your faith in God and Jesus🧖🏼‍♂️👼😇👍👍We must pray that we get a President who loves America❤️❤️❤️💚💚💚

  19. Bernie will never survive the presidential debates if hes the democratic front runner. He akw3ays deflects any question asked of him and never answers directly.
    You think Trump had fun with destroying Hillary. It would be graphic if he destroyed Bernie. It might not even be watching on tv! L.O.L.

  20. Bernie Sanders is a piece of traitorous shit. Him Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Cortez, and Omar need to leave this country of their own free will before we the true American Patriots carry then over our heads and physically through them over the border.

  21. My question to Senator Sanders is as follow,

    "So Bernie (you halfwit moron) should Dylann Roof be allowed to vote for Trump in 2020 after he murdered 9 people who likely would NOT have voted for Trump in 2020?"

  22. Sooo, there's really nothing that a citizen can do that loses them their right to vote. Mass murderers, and successful terrorists have not earned enough credit? "Nah, we want them voting. We want them to elect government officials." You are sure? "Yes." Kamala Harris also said she wants felons to vote. These people have broken loose from the moorings of common sense. They're either stupid, or they've conceded that path to election is to act conciliatory to every class that's non-rich. I think Bernie is stupid. I think Kamala has done the math, and that's what guides her moral choices.

  23. At Bernie's age, you don't make any four-year commitments.
    As per my grandpaw's advice.
    There's more to do at this stage of life than golf and drink at lunch. You've obviously got a talent for teaching, and a lot of young people want to hear what you have to say.
    But NOT as president, and not as a candidate who's overstayed his usefulness.

  24. what a nutjob, cuomo asks him if the boston bomber should get a vote and he flat out says yes, this is a guy that also said white people don't know what it's like to be poor!

  25. Funny how you scum don't think law abiding people have a right to their second amendment but you want criminals to have their voting rights.

  26. Is voting a goddamn right or is it a privilege? If it is the former, then Bernie's proposal solidifies that reality.

    If it's the latter, than you open the door for politicians to arrest you in order to deny you the right to vote. Very, very convenient.

  27. Bat Shit Crazy doesn't even begin to describe the lunacy of this old fart or of CNN or democrats in general for that matter.

  28. RETARD! Voters in Florida allowed convicted criminals who were convicted of NON-SEXUAL/MUDER/TERRORIST CRIMES the right to vote. This mofo specifically asked about a terrorist being allowed the right to vote and Sanders said yes. Terrorists. Murderers. Rapists. These psychopaths think they should be given the right to vote. Florida voters would never have voted for that.

  29. The real reason is that Bernie is assuming all felons would vote for democrats. Which…says a lot about the party.

  30. Bernie is still the better candidate compared to the others. No matter where you stand on voting while in prison, don't forget, USA has some of the lowest voter turnout around the globe, do we really want to hinder voting rights more? I'm not sure, I am neutral on this.

  31. I don't think we should have roads, electricity, running water nor communication networks, otherwise felons or bad people in general will have them too! I'd rather live in a cave! So, Bernie is crazy, obviously… giving the right to vote to everyone is ludicrous! No matter what the Constitution say! In fact, the only article in the Constitution that matters is guns, guns, guns! Can't put laws restricting people from owning guns… slippery slopes… yada yada yada………. but freedom to vote and participate in Democracy, just hold on a God'damm minute!! (PS: people who don't understand sarcasm should read this very very slowly…. over and over again)

  32. Jeffrey Toobin was a student of Dershowitz who CNN refuses to bring on anymore because they think he supports Trump too much. So much for unbiased free press. Toobin hasn’t said a word to protest this. Just another highly paid yes man

  33. The moment you think voting is a privilege and not a right, you’re no longer living in a democracy

  34. Thats because every criminal is a DEMOCRAT!!!!!
    …….
    Old stoner Bernie needs to push his communist agenda in Cuba!

  35. The same reason Democrats in California want to lower the voting age. Get more liberal votes because thats the type of people that would vote liberal. This is going to kill Bernie's momentum for middle of the ground liberals. Politicians say and do the dumbest things ever to gain votes.

  36. They're literally gossiping conspiracies around the table talking about how they must end Donald Trump lmao!

    Guys,
    why do people tune into this?

  37. Sorry voting is not a privilege it's a right. REMEMBER why the colonies rebelled against Great Britain; because of the lack of a vote in parliament.

  38. In response to one of the many bull** spin smears to come from the mass media machine this week:
    "Committing even a serious crime shouldn't strip people of their basic right to be a citizen and active participant in our democracy.
    I have been attacked in recent days by President Trump and others in the media for my conviction that people who are incarcerated should be given the right to vote. I make no apologies for that position.
    Our country has had a long and shameful history of voter suppression. At our founding, despite rhetoric to the contrary, only land-owning white males were given the right to participate in our democracy. Lower income people, Women, Native Americans, African-Americans, and young people were excluded.
    We have been engaged in an ongoing 243-year project to expand participation in our democracy. Thankfully, we have made much progress in that struggle. But our work is not done — not even close.
    If we are serious about calling ourselves a democracy, we must firmly establish that the right to vote is an inalienable and universal principle that applies to all American citizens 18 years and older. Period. As American citizens all of us are entitled to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly and all the other freedoms enshrined in our Bill of Rights. We are also entitled to vote. Yes. Even if Trump’s former campaign manager and personal lawyer end up in jail, they should still be able to vote — regardless of who they cast their vote for.
    This is not a radical idea. Vermont and Maine allow inmates to vote and more than 30 nations — including Israel, South Africa, and Canada — also understand that voting rights for all citizens is a basic principle of democracy
    When we look at the history of why our country has banned incarcerated people from voting, we must understand that the efforts to rob citizens of their voting rights was a legacy of slavery and continuing racist attitudes post-Jim Crow. After the ratification of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, which extended civil and legal protections to formerly enslaved people, many state governments rushed to create new felonies to put black people in jail and then institute lifetime disenfranchisement as a way to protect their own privilege and power.
    Indeed, our present-day crisis of mass incarceration has become a tool of voter suppression. Today, over 4.5 million Americans — disproportionately people of color — have lost their right to vote because they have served time in jail or prison for a felony conviction.
    It goes without saying that someone who commits a serious crime must pay his or her debt to society. But punishment for a crime, or keeping dangerous people behind bars, does not cause people to lose their rights to citizenship. It should not cause them to lose their right to vote.
    This should not devolve into a debate about whether certain people are “good enough” to have the right to vote. Voting is not a privilege. It is a right. In my view, the crooks on Wall Street who caused the great recession of 2008 that hurt millions of Americans are not "good" people. But they have the right to vote, and it should never be taken away.
    The reason why this issue is so important right now is that Trump and cowardly Republican politicians all over this country are working overtime to suppress the vote. Instead of trying to increase voter turnout, they are making it harder for people to participate in the political process.
    In Florida, the Republican legislature is trying to undermine the will of 64 percent of the people who voted to reenfranchise formerly incarcerated people. In Georgia, we have a Republican governor who took office by instituting barriers to voting for people of color. In Tennessee, the Republican legislature is trying to shut down groups who do voter registration work. In New Hampshire and Iowa, the Republicans have tried to make it harder for college students to vote.
    The point here is simple. At a time when voting suppression is taking place all across the country, we must make it clear that casting a ballot for American citizens is not a privilege. It is a right. If you’re an American citizen who is 18 years or older you must be able to vote, whether you're in jail or not."
    -Bernie Sanders

  39. CHEW ON THIS… … …China scans millions of faces on a daily basis. And authorities have developed a so-called "social credit" system based on monitored behavior – they are given scores and ranked according to rules set by the government. "Model" citizens enjoy perks such as reduced bus fares, but those with low scores lose certain rights and are blacklisted. AND YOU WANT TO GIVE PRISONERS RIGHTS?

  40. Dear Bernie,
    I wish you worked at Massachusetts General Hospital on 4/13/15. I wish you saw little Martin an innocent child blown up while cheering on his family. I wish you meet with all the people who lost limbs. I wish you met all the first responders who did their best. I wish you saw the look on my mother’s face as she gathered her courage and her family to find safety moments after the second bomb went off. But clearly after that statement you don’t care. BOSTON STRONG!!!!!!

  41. They allow gay people and trans to vote and it is a crime in the eyes God but they don't allow prisoner to vote it's stupid

  42. Look, Bernie is wrong on this entire criminals in jail should vote thing…. I mean, does anybody like the idea of Donald Trump voting in the next election??

  43. Dems literally have ZERO backbone. If the popular trend was to est cow shit, a Democrst would support it for fucking votes. The reason why they want felons to be able to vote is because felons will always vote left. Like gtfoh.

  44. I'm a Conservative and I plan on voting for Donald Trump again. But someone give me a good reason why prisoners should not be able to vote.

  45. So I guess criminals and degenerates vote Democrat , only reason they'd want to give them the vote. Why would this great Nation want to be led by people who are criminals and degenerates ? God Bless Trump , MAGA !!

  46. Voting rights for prisoners and illegals 🤦🏻‍♂️…..keep it up with the bullshit and they will lose to Trump again

  47. Bernie will not win the nomination. And don’t get me started with Hillary Clinton being ahead of Obama in ‘07. Bernie is nothing close to a Barack Obama. If anyone is going to make a big uprising like Obama did it’s Harris or Buttigieg

  48. “I love Bernie he’s so pro women’s rights and so progressive on race relations”
    Wants rapist to vote on women’s rights issues and Dylan Roof to be able to vote on issues relating to race relations
    🙄🙄

  49. I didn’t watch your shit video. I just wanna tel anyone support a felons right to vote needs to go suck start a 45.

  50. look at the entitled panhandlers aka bernie supporters bitching at CNN for simply calling out bernie the bolshevik. LMFAO!!!

  51. While in prison? No. After they're out and go a certain period with no further run ins with the law, that's different and I'm in favor of it.

  52. This is so fucked up!!! SO RAPISTS SHOULD GET THE RIGHT TO VOTE BEHIND BARS?!! PEOPLE WHO MURDER INNOCENT PEOPLE SHOULD GET TO VOTE?!! U GONNA LET MEMBERS OF ISIS VOTE TOO?!!! JESUS CHRIST THE LEFT IS REALLY DESPERATE TO GET VOTES IN 2020!!! I SWEAR THEY ARE TRUE EVIL OF THIS COUNTRY.

DEMOCRATS ARE BEHIND ALL OF THAT SHIT NOW UR ALL SITTING HERE DEBATING IF WE SHOULD ALLOW FELONS TO VOTE?!! GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK!!

    And back in the 80s Donald Trump was on Operah and She asked Him if He'd run for President. HE said, "no. But one day if America needs Me I'll run."
    Back when Donald was a Democrat. Everyone in media and t.v. loved him and wanted Him to be President knowing He'd follow their evil agenda!! HE woke up in 2009 and became a Republican. Now he's hated?!! Funny how He was never ever mentioned a racist or sexist until He ran for Republican President in 2015!! Sounds like all that shit was made up to destroy His chances of winning. Typical of the left to do. Make up shit to smear the one running against their agenda. Barack Obama started an agenda and said many times vote for hillary if You want My legacy to continue!! His agenda he'd say!! Well maybe she lost because We don't Want HIS ANTI AMERICAN AGENDA TO CONTINUE!!! ONLY IDIOTS WHO DID WANT IT TO CONTINUE WERE CORRUPT ZOMBIES WHO BIT ONTO EVERYTHING THE GOD DAMN T.V. AND SCHOOLS TOLD THEM!! THEY CONTROL THE PEOPLE. OR IF U GO AGAINST THEM THEY FIRE BACK AT YA.

COPS SHOOTING THEM WHEN THEY TRYING TO GET BY TO FEED THEIR FAMILIES. SOMETIMES A MAN GETS SO DESPERATE IN LIFE HE NEEDS TO STEAL OR SELL DRUGS JUST TO GET BY!!

    ^ Maybe if the schools and T.V. wouldn't be brainwashing our youths minds so much today they'd know the truth!!!

  55. This is ridiculous. Felons should not vote because people who have not shown the ability to abide by our nation's laws should not have a say in the creation of those laws. Prisoners should not be deprived of their basic human rights, but they should be deprived of their rights as members of our society, because they broke the rules of our society. Once they have been punished for that, I agree that they should be reintegrated into society — but not until then.

  56. If you are going to grant that right back to felons we’ll don’t they have a right to defend themselves from bully inmates? So why not give them their 2nd amendment right back too, that’s only fair and on the same logic as letting them vote. Heck give them their right to freely move among the states too and free speech and protest? Bernie, you’re an idiot.

  57. Bernie needs to make his point without saying the marathon bomber should have the right to vote! I get what he's saying about felons getting their rights back after they serve their time. They should get their rights back! But this is all I'm hearing and it sounds bad.

  58. Lmao Korrupt Kamala did not even answer the question. What a coward! Her answer was "We should have that conversation" WELL SWEETIE YOU ARE HAVING THAT FUCKING CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW SO GIVE YOUR FUCKING OPINION. HOW THE FUCK DO YOU CRITICIZE A CANDIDATE WHO GIVES AN ANSWER AND PRAISE THE ONE WHO DODGES THE QUESTION??? DNCNN IS TOTAL AND UTTER BULLSHIT. Glad the people in this comment section are WOKE. STAY WOKE!!!

  59. I disagree completely. Voting is imperative; it is crucial to understand the power that is obviously wielded with whoever is elected. A sound mind with the ability to weigh decisions is important. Someone who cannot determine that committing a sex offense or murdering someone is not of sound mind. I wouldn't trust them to cross the street with me let alone try to determine my future, which is what voting is about; trust. It makes sense to be able to think!
