BREAKING: Democratic debate lineups have been announced and Biden WON’T be in first debate…

MSNBC has announced the lineups for the Democratic debates and it is as I suspected. They are debating ten candidates on the first night and ten candidates on the second.

Here’s the lineup:



Here’s how they decided the matchups for the debates:

To decide the matchups, candidates’ names were drawn manually at NBC News’ headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York. One representative of each of the qualifying campaigns was invited to attend the draw along with officials from the Democratic National Committee. Campaign representatives saw their respective candidate’s paper slip with their name on it before it was folded and placed inside the box.

They are trying to keep this from turning into a Democratic cat fight. Yeah, good luck with that. Ten people on stage is gonna be a difficult debate, as we’ve seen in the past.

  1. The dems have already made their decision on who will run. A friend of mine who happened as to be affiliated with high ranking union officials said the debates are just a scam. Theu are pulling another Bernie on the candidates.

  2. These so called ” debates” will be nothing more then a bunch of Leftists spewing Leftist garbage and bashing the President. Nothing of any substance will come from it.

  3. They get their way too much and have gotten use to being first. Now they are going after each other and it has the potential to be comical or at least I hope it goes very south for them all.

  4. OH, I am thrilled to know when the demonrat debates are on so I can specifically avoid them….so many better things to do than to listen to the same words, marching-in-lockstep lies by all 20 who made it to the stage….not that I ever see MSNBC anyway. Since CNN and MSNBC are not on my “favorites” list, I never even see those channels. I do love DirecTV! I have also stopped watching FoxNews because they spend so much time replaying clips from CNN and MSNBC! At least I can choose whether or not to see them when they are pasted here. I love TRS! 😳

  5. Most of these people have no real intentions on being president, they’re just using it as a soapbox to get their message out. Which is unnecessary because they all have the same message.

    1. To be fair, Swalwell is the only one who said he’d nuke American gun owners so he’s unique in that way.

  6. Gabbard is the one who stands to gain the most or lose the most as she’s the least liberal of them all.

    1. It would be a shock if she won the nomination, due to that. She seems more sane than the rest of the other ones.

    2. I am convinced that the only reason she is “the least liberal” is because she actually DID serve the U.S. by serving in the military and, to the best of my knowledge (which is not great), she did not pull a John-Kerry-turncoat scheme by testifying against our military action overseas…yet.

  7. It’s gonna be arousing for the hard-core TDSers to watch, but really boring for the average person who is tired of hearing Trump this and Trump that!

    1. Both have pledged to choose a female….has nothing to do with character, experience or capabilities, just that she will be female. You would think people would find that offensive! LOL

      1. Being female is a flexible thing these days. Someone somewhere will be angry they chose an actual female and declare them transphobic.

  8. My ONLY hesitation with watching these is that they might intentionally put the gloves on and ask nothing but softball questions. IF they protect each of these snowflake jackasses, then it will be a tremendous waste of time and pretty much unwatchable. Release the hounds!!!

    1. I wouldn’t watch these defakes if it were the only thing on television those two nights. I would rather sit outside and watch the moon move instead; at least the moon serves a purpose!

    2. Might? Homer, it’ll be nothing but softballs. They’ll even be able to say the wrong think and flip flop 4 times in the debate with no recourse.

  9. I wouldn’t watch if I was paid too. A bunch of people pandering for the votes of those who don’t contribute at the expense of those that do.

    1. I am going to warch. For entertainment value. And I will have a few margaritas to help.

  10. Two nights of chumming the waters off South Africa. (queue the Jaws theme music)

    This is going to be glorious! Leftist on Leftist carnage! :silly:

  11. Isn’t it a tad early for this? Half probably won’t make it to next year. But if the left wants to waste their money go ahead. Just ad long as it’s not the taxpayer’s.

  12. I’m not going to watch it, and I’ve no interest in these psycho’s.

    However, if they wanted to be fair (they don’t), they’d do the debates all on the same night and simply air one, then the other on a different night.

    Having a debate, and then the next night having a second debate means the people on the second night (Biden) will be able to gauge reactions, and polls, and then adjust for them.

    Again, I could not care any less about the dims, so I hope they implode.

  13. I find it interesting they don’t want a match up between fauxahauntes and sleepy joe!

  14. They get their way too much and have gotten use to being first. Now they are going after each other and it has the potential to be comical or at least I hope it goes very south for them all.

  15. These so called ” debates” will be nothing more then a bunch of Leftists spewing Leftist garbage and bashing the President. Nothing of any substance will come from it.

  17. It doesn’t matter who wins because say what you will whoever wins the nomination Democrats like good little drones will march in lock step down to the voting booth and vote for whichever idiot won by the millions. For them it’s not about who their leader is it’s about Orange Man Bad.

  18. The only one I care to see is AOC. She’s gonna suck, but I want to see if she’s treated with kid gloves.

    QUESTION: How are you going to pay for fixing global warming?
    AOC: Why are you worried about that? It’s only $500 trillion!

    1. You’ll be disappointed. She’s not running, so she’s not debating. She won’t turn 35 until 2024.

      1. I know, which means I won’t watch any of their Presidential primary debates until then. I’m anxious to see her debate Cruz or someone NOW.

        1. Good plan. I’d be very surprised if she is a candidate in 2024, though, so you might not have to watch for even longer.

          1. @t_ump She may never run for President, but we still might get the chance to see her in a debate with a solid conservative somewhere along the line.

            1. I doubt it. Her district is like 95% democrat. If she debates a conservative in her district it will be a major unforced error on her part. At best she might have to debate another democrat in the primary.

              If she ever debates a conservative it will be if she runs for higher office, but if it is a New York office it won’t be much of a conservative.

              1. @t_ump Probably not, but you never know. She’s still the only Democrat I want to see in a debate.

        2. Now, that you mention it, I think it would be great to see AOC in a debate. It’s time someone had a chance to ask her questions and pin her down to see if she can still make sense by the end of the questioning. Of course we both know she wouldn’t, but that could be really enjoyable to watch.

          1. @laphil I am fascinated by her. Not in a good way, but how she can be so popular with so little substance and the craziest solutions ever. So much so that other Democrats are following her lead. Her answers are worth popping out the popcorn and having a good comedy hour.

            1. I keep hearing Fox News anointing her as the “real” leader of the Democratic Party. That’s a joke. Most Democrats are probably embarrassed by her.

              1. @laphil Maybe they are embarrassed but they aren’t rebuking her and it’s giving her more stature.

  19. I find it interesting they don’t want a match up between fauxahauntes and sleepy joe!

  20. It doesn’t matter who wins because say what you will whoever wins the nomination Democrats like good little drones will march in lock step down to the voting booth and vote for whichever idiot won by the millions. For them it’s not about who their leader is it’s about Orange Man Bad.

    1. I’ll be watching…on Crowder’s livestream, playing drinking games lol

      Oops he said “fair share”…DRINK!!!

  21. I’m not going to watch it, and I’ve no interest in these psycho’s.

    However, if they wanted to be fair (they don’t), they’d do the debates all on the same night and simply air one, then the other on a different night.

    Again, I could not care any less about the dims, so I hope they implode.

  22. Why would I torment myself watching the Dem debates? It would be like walking through a mental ward. No thanks. The highlights will be more than enough.

    1. It will be past all of their bedtime because they are all either too old or too childish.

  23. I did not see Winnie the Pooh on the list of characters. Many years ago my wife and Grandson watched Winnie all the time and believe me Winnie could win against any of these characters.

  24. I may watch out of morbid fascination. Possibly try to come up with a drinking game like take a drink every time one of them says something stupid, of course I will be dead drunk in 10 minutes and might not be able to comprehend anything else they say. Actually not a bad plan.

    1. Not if you drink Margaritas and just take a teeny weeny sip after each stupid answer and that will give you about 30 minutes of viewing time

  25. Most of these people have no real intentions on being president, they’re just using it as a soapbox to get their message out. Which is unnecessary because they all have the same message.

    1. To be fair, Swalwell is the only one who said he’d nuke American gun owners so he’s unique in that way.

  26. I think I’ll wait for the “highlight” reels. I might commit suicide trying to actually watch these idiots! But, the highlight reels will be most entertaining.

      1. Being female is a flexible thing these days. Someone somewhere will be angry they chose an actual female and declare them transphobic.

        1. So true. Not only is the term AND condition female “flexible,” but male is completely and entirely hated in today’s society….yet the best the demonrats have is male (who are less than real men, I might add)….demonrats and their minions must truly be the most miserably unhappy people on Earth today. That’s what happens when lies are truth and each of them has their “own truth,” as opposed to THE truth. sigh.

  32. My ONLY hesitation with watching these is that they might intentionally put the gloves on and ask nothing but softball questions. IF they protect each of these snowflake jackasses, then it will be a tremendous waste of time and pretty much unwatchable. Release the hounds!!!

    1. This is one train wreck I really want to see – they are going to savage each other (for many, for the first time)!

      1. All that does is give them ratings and attention all of them salivate over. I’m waiting for the clips from RS. It’s not even a debate. fox isn’t allowed to be there so the whole thing is staged…

  34. The only one I care to see is AOC. She’s gonna suck, but I want to see if she’s treated with kid gloves.
