Bernie Sanders has ended his Presidential campaign

It's an extraordinary end to a candidate who wildly thought it was his time; helped transform Democratic policies, and largely wanted to bring America a better system that typically would've worked for all. But on Wednesday, Sanders reportedly notified campaign staffers that he would be dropping out of what was once a breakneck race for the Democratic nomination. https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1247913426166280192?s=20 Perhaps it was his socialistic idealisms that pushed him to the top, but the Vermont Senator couldn't quite maintain that almost universal support during things like Super Tuesday -- where more moderate voters began their consolidation around Joe Biden. Sanders successfully managed to, however, push young and moderate Latino voters into his suppor...

Joe Biden really really *really* hates Medicare for All

Presidential candidate Joe Biden is a candidate that has made it clear that he does not want Medicare for All (probably in fact at all.) In an interview published Friday, the Democratic candidate had this to say when questioned as to whether or not he believed Medicare for All would've at least helped further slow the Coronavirus pandemic. “If you had Medicare for all option now, it still has to be implemented by the federal government,” the former veep told ABC News during an interview Thursday. “Look, here’s the point, the idea that this would have stopped the virus from occurring, the idea it would have been able to be implemented earlier, the idea it wold have fundamentally changed anything is just not accurate,” Biden continued when asked whether the private sector ...

MSNBC: Sander’s win in Nevada was like when the Nazis invaded France in 1940

This weekend brought the best of the best of the possible dumbass comments to the masses. MSNBC 's Chris Matthews wins the weekend award for unbelievable comment of the week after he openly compared Sander's win in Nevada to the 1940 Nazi invasion of France. Ringo Chiu / Getty Images The comment(s) were as they read below: "I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940," said Matthews, "And the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, 'It's over.' And Churchill says, 'How can that be? You've got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?' He said, 'It's over.'" "So I had that suppressed feeling," said Matthews. It's worth noting that members of Sander's own family were killed by the Nazis.

Is America finally headed for a Single Payer healthcare system?

According to reports, it, seems that way after a renewed push by Democrats to change the landscape of healthcare in the U.S.  While the Republicans continue to struggle to get their 50 or so votes to maintain their controversial bill, Democrats, are floating and renewing the idea of a single-payer healthcare system. The Republicans have been trying to secretly pass a pretty shitty bill that still doesn't quite make sense to the masses, not even, to the most political of the bunch here at the Daily News. The bill, uh, has been losing  support in their own party for some time -- even among the most reclusive and conservative.  Mitch McConnell, perhaps,  spent much of the recess trying to maintain what's left of the Republican support, considering,    more have continued to pull out. In...

WATCH: Bernie Sanders is proud to be a Jew

If you watched some of the debates, it, probably isn't a secret that you've learned by now that Bernie Sanders is Jewish.  According to Time Magazine,  by means of a video they acquired, Sanders apparently admitted in videos over the weekend that he "was proud to be Jewish" although had previously dodged  questions about his family's Jewish heritage.   Sanders,  who won Maine over the weekend, was previously dodgy over questions during previous debates about his heritage -- some of which he previously noted that dates back to the Holocaust and the Hitler days.

Bernie Sanders: What’s it like to live in the Ghetto?

When Hillary Clinton made the comment that she as a "white person didn't know what it was like to live in their shoes"  as so many African Americans experienced in the audience -- Bernie Sanders had one way to respond. "When you are white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto, you don’t know what it’s like to be poor, you don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you are walking down a street or dragged out of a car." (Here's the video.) His, er, wording of the word Ghetto has critics up in arms. "Saying 'ghetto' is ... not a great moment," writes Maggie Haberman in the New York Times debate blog. "It's also not that far off from Trump saying 'the blacks.'"   "He knows that all Black people don't live in ghettos, right?" tweets Jonathan Capehar...
