100 thoughts on “Michael Bennet On Breaking News That Hickenlooper Will End Presidential Bid | The Last Word | MSNBC”

  1. Democrats are liers. No one proved the Russians hacked the 2016 election just an excuse why.their candidate didn't win. Can't understand how anyone can in sound mind be a democrat. They are immoral, godless.human beings.. Godless
    People pushing obortion, murdering innocent infants, confusing the minds of little children with the GBT alphabet nonsense, the insane hatred of the
    President by congress, Their plans to change laws to cheat their way to win the elections, and confronting people of the opposition party on streets, restaurants, anywhere and everywhere telling them they don't
    belong here, These are acts of insanity. Then Nancy Pelosi stating that the President's family should stage an intervention for him. If anyone needs an intervention would be most of
    The Democrat Congress.

  2. Moscow Mitch, and his wife, China Chow, the two most corrupt (except for Ross) Pig people currently in office.

  3. Are any of us surprised Moscow Mitch would enrich himself on the backs of Americans. NO WONDER HE WAS SO UPSET ABOUT THE NICKNAME!

  4. So, it must be the case that Moscow Mitch knows that he would not hold Kentucky without Russian help; and this is how he has retained his seat for so long, and it is why he is never bothered by anybody's assessment of, or opinion on, what he is not doing! 🤢

  5. Gardner will lose either way, Hickenlooper is liked in Colorado he should win easily. Make your name in the Senate and run for president in 8 years.

  6. It’d be funny if it weren’t so pathetic,…… oh what the heck I’ll laugh anyway.

    Bye Hickenlooper no one ever cared

  7. Moscow Mitch is also going to be building an huge transportation hub in N.E. Kentucky. So is Mitch in valved with Amazon as far as both of them getting together and making money because I watch the show talking about building a big hug for transportation just VOTE OUT MOSCOW Mitch McConnell

  8. Moscow Mitch has to go. He's too old and he's been in the senate since 1984. There needs to be a limit to how long a person can succeed themselves in the senate. None of the founding fathers ever expected a senator would serve for 36 years. That's close to the total lifespan of an average 18th century male.

  9. Aluminum plants use huge amounts of electricity. All those coal burning electric plants in the Ohio River Valley mean more air pollution and more global warming.

  10. McConnell has been doing this type of treasonous thing for years now, but because he's a grand wizard of the KKK, they're allowing him to continue this buffoonery. The dirt bag turtle whose claim to fame is how he stole from Obama and subverted democracy has actual Russian mobsters paying him to look the other way while they dismantle America on every level. My only question is why is he still in the senate? Something is really really wrong with the so called leaders of this nation.

  11. Donald Trump and the whole USA Corp. gang have already been declared illegal and prohibited by the Bretton Agreement conclusions under "President" John F. Kennedy. Please watch the weekly reportages from the world bank lawyer Karen Hudes here on youtube. She is responsible for the Global Currency Reset and also she declares the Trump "administration" as illegal as all "administrations" before him ! Don't you think this is worth to think about !?!..

  12. With the sincerest hope Kentuckians understand to vote for a real veteran Lt. Colonel McGrath, USMC. A Democrat woman whom would work for the citizens rather than sell his state to a Russian Oligarch investing which gives that Oligarch pressure on elected people.

  13. Beyond the debate over the essences of Lincoln's party (the one that abolished slavery), Republicans are no longer what they were with President Reagan … So, there is the certainty that the matter cannot reach the maximum height urgency in the ranks of the right because that means accepting that the evil hand of Vladimir Putin influenced and, therefore, overshadows the legitimacy of Trump's victory … GOP is the enemy of US.

  14. If you put measures in place that thwart the ability of Russia to interfere in our elections, Trump can't win. If you allow Russia to meddle, Moscow Mitch and Man Child benefit.

  15. Bennett, Hickenlooper and the other corporatist Dem hacks need to pull out of the Presidential race and take a long, hard look at themselves.
    SANDERS WARREN 2020 😎🤘

  16. It's time for AMERICAN'S to Wake up before it's to late and WE All be taken over by Communists because of Moscow Mitch and the Lying , Thievery of TRUMP. WHY ARE WE NOT IN FRONT OF THE CAPITAL? YEARS AGO DURING THE KING'S MARCHING DAY'S THIS WOULD NOT BE HAPPENING, LIKE THEN WE MARCHED FOR OUR RIGHTS AND SHOULD BE MARCHING NOW MORE NOW THAN EVER. OUR EXISTENCE IS IN JEOPARDY, OUR LIVES, OUR WAY OF LIFE AND OUR DEMOCRACY.
    WHY ARE WE ALLOWING THIS DESTRUCTION OF OUR NATION TO BE SO EASILY DESTROYED BEFORE OUR ON EYES!!!!
    ENOUGH BLOOD HAVEN'T BEEN SHED ENOUGH FROM OUR FORE FATHER'S WILL THEIR BLOOD BE IN VAIN? ALSO THE SLAVES THAT BUILT THEIR OWN CITY OKLAHOMA AND BUILT AN ECONOMY THAT THE GOVERNMENT ENVIED AND COMMANDED THE U.S.ARMY TO SLAUGHTERED THE WHOLE TOWN AND STOLE ALL THEIR BELONGINGS EVEN THE CHILDREN AND BABIES WASN'T SPARED. ALSO IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY ON A BLACK SUNDAY KKKWAS ALLOWED TO COME INTO THE CAPITAL LOCKED THE CHAMBER DOORS AND KILLED EVERY BLACK SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN AT THAT TIME IT WAS THE DEMOCRATS THAT WAS THE RACIST THAT THE US ARMY WAS ALL OR PART OFTHE KKK.
    RISE MY AMERICA HISTORY HAS TAUGHT US THE PAST IS PAST, LOOK UNTO THE FUTURE FOR THE PAST WILL ONLY STOP THE FUTURE. DON'T GIVE IN TO HATE FOR TO MUCH BLOOD HAVE BEEN SHED FOR EQUILY AND PEACE STOP LETTING TRUMP AND MCCONNELL AND THEIR GREED OF MONEY ALLOW RUSSIA TO DIVIDE OUR COUNTRY TO BE CONQUERED FROM WITHIN.WE ARE AMERICANS, TOGETHER WE STAND AND WE FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY AND NO OTHER HOSTILE COUNTRY SHALL TAKE THE SOUL OF OUR COUNTRY OR PRESIDENT SHALL TAKE THE SOUL OF OUR COUNTRY AND STUMP IT IN THE GROUND AND SALE AMERICA TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. WE ARE ONE NATION UNDER GOD INDIVISABLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, WE ARE AMERICA AND WE ARE THE SOUL OF AMERICA.FIGHT AMERICA FOR SHE IS BEING SLAUGHTERED FROM WITH IN BY TRUMP AND MCCONNELL WITH RUSSIA'S DESIGNS TO TAKE US DOWN. PLEASE STOP THESE TRAITORS BOTH NEEDS TO BE JAILED ALONE WITH THE GOP FOR ENABLING THEM AND OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE THIS IS AN ALL OUT ATTACK ON AMERICA BY RUSSIA WITH AIDE FROM TRUMP AND MCCONNELL AND ALSO BARR AND GOP. AMERICA SAVE HER NOW. FIGHT FOR HER AMERICA NEEDS US NOW FOR THEY ARE RIPPING HER FROM WITHIN!!!

  17. It astounds me that Americans have to "save democracy from trump". I agree. trump is an enemy of the US and democracy. He is the enemy of all that is just, right and good. And yet….he is still squatting in the White House. How is this possible?

  18. Let's not forget his Chinese wife and what she was attempting to do. A marriage for political gains? I think it could be.

  19. www.russiahackedourdemocracy.com
    You can read the book on line. If you donate $1 to $100 the book will be sent to Moscow Mitch. As of Aug 15, 2019 1:27pm EDT 2200 books have been sent. Free to read!

  20. Hey Lawrence, tell everyone about the Epstein Vatixan connection.

    How about the rotten catholic church and orphans of Duplessis?

    How about how 800 infants bodies were stuffed into septic tanks by the sisters of "Bon Secours"?

    Or perhaps google the flaming Cardinal Spellman. Ever wonder why they called Vietnam Spelly's War?

  21. Newsweek's done great reporting on hacking/dividing. Outbreak of measles? Russia's social media hack/bots YT, FB, IG,+ propaganda in the US and other countries are being hit as well. Just an example of those who yell the loudest are guilty..https://www.newsweek.com/trump-tapes-history-comey-watergate-609304

  22. I think anyone that follows in trumps shoes should all be hauled off to prison ! The republican party is dragging america through the mud and promising jobs then companies shut down and that leaves americans with out employment ! Ged rid of the present republican party so we can rebuild this country to what it was ! Gather a new republican party so we can make america proud !

  23. Hello?? www.tyt.com reported this a week ago! #massacremoscowitch was always 100% corrupt. His greed for even more corruption is finally showing!

  24. The rot in the GOP is everywhere. Lets see what FOX says about this guy now. He and Spanky are quite the team of liars and crooks.

  25. MOSCOW Mitch is a thousand-headed MONSTER. His CORRUPTION is after the similitude of ten thousand stink bombs detonated all at once. My burning question is this: WHY is it that those CRIMINALS and enemies of the US CONSTITUTION … traitors to the rules of law are NOT jailed for their most obvious crimes? Additionally, WHY is ELAINE CHAO, wife of MOSCOW MITCH not in JAIL for her crimes? WHY are the so called PATRIOTS remaining in an ominous silence? There are those who have been vilified, for simply "taking a knee" as protest for the POLICE BRUTALITY against them, and others who are in JAIL for stealing a pair of shoes or something quite trivial. Think of what the enormity of that kind of monstrosity of a thing that so many dare accept as JUSTICE.
    As for JOHN HICKENLOOPER, let someone else run in his stead. Too many of the same principle, ethnicity, GREED and SELFISHNESS in Congress, in The Senate and House of Representatives. I have spent quite some time in reading about that JOHN Hickenlooper. It is time to say NO to those strange creatures. He realized that things weren't going well in the Democratic Party; he was pondering on running as a REPUBLICAN. It is reminiscent of MICHAEL BLOOMBERG who ran as Republican (using Democratic ideas), a Democrat hugging to every Democratic political idea and then he attempted to explore and exploit the Independent group, but for him, it was a fiasco. Too many VULTURES in too many places!

  26. Fake ~~msnbc, the sanctions wont be lifted, dems just trying to start crap , just like trump and russia, joe scarborro, resigned from house , after his workwr was found dead inhis office, door locked from inside, she was murdered, he immediately resigned,,,crooked joe,,w

    McConnell is a Russian Asset…Kentucky must vote this traitor out.

    56

    NUFF SAID.

  28. If there is true justice in the US, Moscow Mitch will be tried for treason. He is a very evil, corrupt man who lacks any moral. How can the constitution of a true democracy allow a man as corrupt as Mitch so much leverage and power. Everything about the US style of democracy stinks from head to bottom now.

  29. MOSCOMITCH! APPARENTLY! NOW SOLD KENTUCKY STATE TO RUSSIA! INTEREST! HE PUTS RUSSIA AT THE TOP ON INVESTOR IN KENTUCKY TO HAVE WHATEVER RUSSIA WANTS! ON KENTUCKY!!

  30. Hey Bennet. Get a freak'n life. And take a cue from Hick. These people are deplorable. Seriously Bennet. Go join peace corp or something. We don't need or want you. Go buy a vacation home somewhere…preferably NOT in Colorado.

  31. Trump is a temporary abomination who has a maximum of 8 years, but Moscow Mitch has been there for decades, and isn't term-limited.

    It's WAY more important to get rid of Moscow Mitch than to get rid of Trump. It's hard to imagine there's a person WORSE for America than Trump, but this the world we live in today

  32. The Senate leader should not be able to BLOCK any bill from being voted on. You don't like a bill vote on it don't hide

  33. Washington post + MSNBC = 1 big fat lie!
    Instead of playing guessing games why not discuss facts. Like the fact that biden's son received 1.5 billion dollars from the Chinese government after vp chinajoe visited China. The money didn't come from a business it came from the Comunist Chinese government. This is real news, so I guess that's why you ignore it.

  34. Neckless wreckless Moscow Mitch and his Chow Chow lapdog can only bark out loud but it is to late to save his seat

  35. Aluminum production takes a tremendous amount of electricity, so I'm guessing infrastructure will have to be upgraded. Well they can always use their shares of the company to pay all the higher taxes. Also something to think about is these plants are 24/7 so the lights are always on. I remember in Santa Clara County, CA the Kaiser Aluminum plant used to light up the entire hillside 24/7 so you may want to keep the plant location in mind…Just sayin'

  36. Hypocrisy abound….l ok. …nothing and I mean nothing but lies….fact check it yourself….communist run media is outright lying to you…..you FOOLS…..that bill is full of pork

  37. Are you kidding me self enrichment is the worst act because it determines who they work for! Come on Lawrence I know you guys don’t like to talk about these honorable gentlemen actually being corrupt but that’s your job so go do it!

  38. Aluminum manufacturing is incredibly poisonous to the environment. The Kentuckians should know this before they allow any jobs like this to come in.

  39. MSNBC, Hello America!!!
    Republican Senate leader,
    Mitch McConnell has been proven to be overtly chummy with the Russian oligarchs. Most people know his schemes to enrich himself and enjoy the alleged
    "quid pro quo," Moscow Mitch McConnell Swamp Era loyalist cringeworthy negotiations with the Russian oligarchs that has direct ties to the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.
    According to news reports,
    the majority of Americans/registered voters are well informed concerning…
    the Russian brutal evil doer dictator Vladimir Putin,
    who proudly admitted to helping Donald J . Trump win the 2016 presidential election.
    The corrupt Russian military intelligence election fraud laced criminal cyberspace hacker cheaters,
    are already on a mission to cheat U.S. registered voters from accurately casting their respective individual votes in 2020.
    This definitely doesn't include,
    the overwhelmingly massive voter suppression tactics the Republicans, alongside with some of their nefarious election fraud rigging loyalist others, who will utilize every possible deviant viciousness to stop thousands upon thousands of voters to be removed from exercising their constitutional rights to vote.
    I believe the absentee ballots will help play a huge role in Trump's
    re-election campaign bid.
    How will Congress achieve success in protecting the absentee ballots??!!
    Every election cycle, there's always some "giant political drama," concerning absentee ballots.
    That's, "Fact not Fiction."
    Realistically, it's statistically on point average that the Democrats could overwhelmingly regain the majority in the Senate… should registered voters get cheated
    out of some votes, due to the overwhelming amounts of people within our nation that could …
    "show up – and -show out,"
    to curtail Russian military criminal cyberspace hacker's illegal fraud election rigging messiness to help Trump win re-election.
    Numbers don't lie… unless they're manipulated by intentional illegal hacker's illegal fraudulent election rigging schemes.
    If, there's physically more Democratic and Independent registered voters who cast their respective individual votes for Democratic candidates…and not Republican candidates…and there isn't enough Trump voters,
    the Russian criminal cyberspace hacker's illegal fraudulent election scheme to help Trump win
    re-election, shouldn't be officially allowed.. due in part to
    mass media professional news reports on voting information statistical count analysis and the overwhelming majority amounts
    of Democratic and Independent registered voters, who I'm hoping will cast their respective individual votes within the 2020 presidential election. I know lots of people within my area that's registering to vote because of the Trump/Republican's dreadful tax reform bill.

  40. It's called foreign investment. Corporations have no loyalty to any country, only to their share holders. What difference does it make if a Russian invests in a US company or if the Saudis invest? Or the Israelis or Brits or Chinese? What's the difference? They're all just rich folks with no loyalty to any nation using tax breaks and bribes to make themselves even richer.

  41. Why is McConnel blocking any bill that would secure our elections ? BECAUSE THE TRUMP CRIME FAMILY NEEDS MASSIVE HELP BY FOREIGN POWERS TO REMAIN IN OFFICE !! Thank you
