Late Night Democratic Presidential Debate


-Now, NBC held the first
Democratic presidential debates a few weeks ago,
and they were fine, but I had one complaint —
Not enough candidates. So we decided to hold
a debate of our own. All the candidates are right
here, right now, not split into two nights. So without further ado, here’s the “Late Night”
Democratic presidential debate. ♪♪ [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ [ Cheers and applause ] Welcome to “Late Night”‘s first 2020 Democratic
