Senator Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Donald Trump discussed on State of the Union with Jake Tapper

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

There's some really good people out there. Many of them personal friends of mine who are thinking about running as well. And I'm trying to ask the pain, quite honestly going beyond ego. A witch candidate has the best chance to beat Trump. I think Elizabeth Warren is a wonderful. And there are a number of others of Cory booker's, a good friend of mine. Senator Bernie Sanders laying out the state of play in the ongoing invisible. Two thousand twenty democratic primary which seem to truly get underway over the past few days checkout, just some of the headlines from this week. Let's discuss first of all Senator Turner you worked for Bernie Sanders in two thousand sixteen is he running do you want him to run again? Or are you still feeling the burn? I'm still filling the barn. I mean, he's seriously thinking about it. I mean, all that. He has said he is not totally made up his mind. But I think he's probably one of the very few in that makes who would say steel looking to see who might be the best person to actually do this job. I think with Democrats, and the and this country can't expect there's lots of variety in twenty twenty on the democratic side variety is often say, it'd be despite the light. We don't spice it up and twenty twenty on the democratic side can have a life by a lot of spice thirty five well, at least twenty twenty twenty we know that for sure more, but we didn't have that in two thousand sixteen. So although. I am very supportive of Senator Sanders. I am also supportive of anybody who wants to run should get out. There is there anyone you like anyone looking at other people that I totally love dropped out this week, which devolved Patrick I was hoping that he would do it because I want somebody who can cause our hearts to soar and who has experienced and grounded. But I you know, I'm all about the spice. I just don't want the heartburn. I do think that we are going to have a an incredibly robust, and wonderful example of democracy. And I'm excited about it is is there any democrat. You think that you're afraid of that you that you don't want. Here's here's where I come down. When the Democrats win they pick someone unexpected or someone from some someone who's not the fake Bill Clinton, Barack Obama on Barack Obama Jimmy Carter when they pick John Kerry or Al Gore or Hillary Clinton, they lose. And so I'm hoping for Bernie or Elizabeth or somebody like that someone tired old you'll buy. And put them out there. We'll win someone new then then I think that I think they have a chance there's a the Elizabeth Warren. Speaking of Massachusetts divall, Patrick, Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts story in the New York Times skewered her decision to release a DNA test to try to show that she actually does have native American ancestry her hometown newspaper. The the Boston Globe this week wrote quote, Warren, Mr. moment in two thousand sixteen and there's reason to be skeptical of her perspective candidacy in two thousand twenty she's become a divisive figure a unifying voice is what the country needs right now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump. Yeah, I think the country needs unifying voices period. I mean, I think the country's unbelievably divided. It's frightening to me. I would add Monash the president on some of that as well say, hey, better rhetoric. Let's unite people the thing I think the Democratic Party in twenty twenty is they're gonna end up with a far left candidate right now, you see even the leadership Nancy Pelosi. They're they're begging for their far left. They're turning to the far less. It's not going to be a centrist party. It was a centrist party. I think they'd put somebody up like Joe Biden. And unlike Senator Santorum, I actually think Biden would be a really tough candidate. But if you go far farther to the left, I think. Thirty cent wanting one is fucking. Well, let me tell you something wanting to have a fifteen dollars an hour..
