>>Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY,
WE’RE BACK MERE WITH SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS RUNNING FOR
PRESIDENT OF THESE UNITED STATES. SENATOR, YOU’RE RAKING IN THE
CASH, YOU’RE AT THE TOP OF THE POLLS. ANYTHING FEEL DIFFERENT THIS
TIME FROM 2016?>>YEAH. WHAT FEELS VERY DIFFERENT IS I
THINK THERE IS MUCH MORE CONSCIOUSNESS ABOUT THE CRISIS
REGARDING CLIMATE CHANGE. SO FOUR YEARS AGO, PEOPLE
RECOGNIZED THAT NOW THEY ARE INCREASINGLY NERVOUS NOT ONLY
BECAUSE THE SCIENTISTS ARE TELLING US THAT WE HAVE AN
EXISTENTIAL CRISIS THAT IF WE DON’T GET OUR ACT TOGETHER IN
THE NEXT FEW YEARS, IF WE DON’T HAVE THE GUTS TO TAKEN TO THE
FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY AND TRANSFORM OUR ENERGY SYSTEM, IF
WE CAN’T BRING THE ENTIRE WORLD TOGETHER, THEN THE PLANET WE’RE
GOING TO BE LEAVING OUR KIDS AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL BE
INCREASINGLY UNHEALTHY AND DANGEROUS. SO I THINK THERE IS THAT GROWING
CONSCIOUSNESS AND, AGAIN, IT’S NOT JUST WHAT THE SCIENTISTS ARE
SAYING, IT’S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SEEING ACTUALLY WITH THEIR OWN
EYES. ( APPLAUSE )
YOU SEE WHAT’S GOING ON IN AUSTRALIA.>>Stephen: YEP. AND I DON’T WANT TO GET
PEOPLE TOO NERVOUS, BUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN AUSTRALIA, WHICH IS
BURNING, WHAT WENT ON IN CALIFORNIA, THAT IS THE FUTURE
OF OUR PLANET UNLESS WE AGGRESSIVELY TACKLE CLIMATE
CHANGE AND TELL THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY THAT THEIR SHORT-TERM
PROFITS ARE NOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE FUTURE OF OUR PLANET. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: SENATOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. BEFORE WE GO — BEFORE WE GO, I
JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU THAT LAST NIGHT LARRY DAVID WAS ON
THE SHOW, WHO PORTRAYS YOU FREQUENTLY —
>>THAT WAS SANDERS ON THE SHOW LAST NIGHT.>>Stephen: REALLY? I AM LARRY DAVID, AND I
FOOLED YOU, DIDN’T I? YOU’RE A GULLIBLE GUY!>>Stephen: I HAVE BEEN
PUNKED! ( APPLAUSE )
HE SAID HE THINKS YOU’RE GREAT, HE WOULD LIKE YOU TO WIN, BUT HE
IS DESPERATE FOR YOU TO LOSE BECAUSE HE DOESN’T WANT TO HAVE
TO FLY BACK BETWEEN LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK FOR THE NEXT FOUR
YEARS. DO YOU HAVE A MESSAGE FOR HIM?>>HEY, LARRY. IT’S GOING TO BE A TOUGH FOUR
YEARS, BUT YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO BE FLYING BACK. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: SENATOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH. SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS,
EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH THE
STAR OF NETFLIX’S “YOU,” PENN BADGLEY.

  • mike avery Post author

    I'm glad he's got a second shake at this presidency I called foul on the DNC well before it was common knowledge on the Stephanie Miller Show she thought I was being a little over zealous in pointing it out this was the one time I hate being right and I predicted Trump winning Bernie Sanders is the President we need I used to say Trump was the president we deserve but if you think about the areas where he's getting voted in there's a ton of lead poisoning and chemicals in the water and in the air so I often wonder if it's a symptom of irrational thinking and ego-stroking not to say that most of us aren't suffering from the same symptoms I just think it's more prevalent in these areas and all they want is to keep their jobs that are poisoning them but putting food on their table blinds them and they can't stand the thought of moving to a better system because they don't have the capabilities of imagining a better system that works for them.

    45 brags about spending $2T on military

    $2T means

    •$1.1B:SNAP for 700K hungry Americans

    •$20B: End homelessness in USA

    •$40B: Insulin for every diabetic

    •$60B: Universal Pre-K

    •$70B: Universal 4-yr-college

    •$1.6T: Cancel student debt

    STILL have $200B

    Instead—we get War

    Love to Bernie from Australia. This is what the world needs; politicians who care about people more than the economy.

  • Anthony Smith Post author

    God i really hope he wins.. i care so much about this planet, the precious thing that is life. I grieve so deeply for all the grotesque suffering human beings have caused.. I think no matter who wins the nomination, everyone just needs to put his name on the ballot and put him there!

    He has such a graceful sense of humor, I’m obsessed.

    This comment section is pure gold and this man gives hope to humanity with the record to back it! I went to a local Bernie rally in Seattle today and we have the numbers and the energy, Time to Bern this place to the ground 🔥🔥🔥 (and by that I mean attacking climate change, Medicare for all, ending Citizens United, income equality, end endless wars, etc.) And for those who say "you just want free stuff" NO! We want our tax dollars to work for us! It's about damn time! #notmeus #sanders2020

    He does have a sense of humor. Bernie ❤

  • Noel Ryan Post author

    Bernie, an honorable man of true integrity, not afraid to p*** off financial supporters from fossil fuel and poisonous industries because they are not his base. The ordinary American suffering from toxic air, water, food, housing, lack of decent paying jobs and health care are Bernie's loyal supporters and financial donors. Bernie mentioned the average donation he receives is $18.50, not $18.5M! As he's out in front for funds raised in last quarter 2019, that's an awful lot of people putting their money on Bernie to win. He won't let them down. Feel the Bern!

    Anyone who doesn't vote for him this time will live to regret it. That's not a threat, it's a promise.

  • Julia Connell Post author

    I don't think it's about "the planet we're leaving our kids and grandkids" – the danger is much more immediate and imminent that that – it about NOW not the future – we if don't do something NOW there will be no future for ANY of us, ALL of us – right now – in our lifetimes – humans, the world

    I may not be a very religious man, but prayers that this man makes it to the White House and let us be endowed with the energy to put action into this campaign for this country sorely needs a leader, and that leader is Bernie Sanders

    The reality of the climate changing catastrophically has hit us hard in Australia. This is a wake up call.

    The US is in the enviable position of being able to elect a leader who understands the severity of the climate catastrophe.

    This man is the POTUS the world needs.

    I like Bernie Sanders and I like Elisabeth Warren.
    But I don't think it's a good idea if they both run. They only will take votes from each other. At some point, one of them should drop out to support the other one.
    Or perhaps it would be a good idea to have a final ballot at the end of the primaries. Let's say Biden would win the primaries and Bernie would be the runner-up. The way it is now people who voted for Warren would probably regret their decision and their vote basically didn't change anything. If there would be a final ballot they still would have the chance to cast a vote that actually means something.

  • SuperGill Post author

    Australias bushfires are not due to climate change they are due to cuts in fire services funding and government cost cutting. I believe in climate change but Bernie should not be using tragedies to falsely prove his point even if it is for action on climate change.

  • enigmaPL Post author

    I like you Bernie, but pollution needs to be addressed abroad and not back home. The top 6 biggest contributors to global pollution are 3rd world countries. Dumping plastics, trash, toxic waste and byproducts into the land, water and air, with zero regulations and no accountability.

    Punishing American citizens further, through taxation or increasing cost of daily necessities hurts the country, and doesn't actually address the real ongoing issue. Banning plastic straws is a joke and insult to peoples intelligence, trying to fool people into thinking we're making a difference. The reality is, we are not the problem. Cars are not the problem. They're scapegoats to impose an entirely different agenda rather than address pollution.

    Wtf? Bernie talks about the importance of climate change and Larry is flying from LA to New York just to do an SNL skit. Fucking infuriating.

  • Dennis Mitchell Post author

    And Bernie flew in a plane, and used a car to appear on this program. Afterwards he ate somewhere, went somewhere to shower and sleep ALL MADE POSSIBLE BY BURNING FOSSIL FUELS. Let's all go back to living on the frontier and live in tents or sod houses while growing our own food supply without machines and electrical devices ! ! GREEN DEAL !

  • John Mastroligulano Post author

    We don't have to tell the fossil fuel industry anything just cut off the $ & contracts that the US is giving them which have been artificially propping up their business's leaching off of everyone else. That in itself will do what we need done if you combine it with finally cutting the military budget at least in 1/2 as it's by far the largest polluter in the world bar none. Start with unrigging the war profiteering & in general oligarch vamping everyone else ways that the Congress itself created. Oh & upgrade the power grid which is the oldest in the developed world hence it's losing 20+% in transmission which is pretty huge waste.

    Sorry Larry David – but this is one of those times you need to ask what you can do for your country – not what makes your schedule tighter with all the frequent miles. Your TV character may need to move to N.Y. during the Sanders admin so you don't get a letter, (or a Twitter, an Instagram?), from Greta Thunberg flying back and forth so much.

  • dryboneskirby Post author

    Funny thing is that all these boomer deniers will be dead when climate change really affects us negatively, so they won’t be around for the consequences. The younger generations have to shoulder the burdens and pay for the sins of the father.
