The best Daily yet. Middle America has been overshadowed by issues that we don't have a dog in the fight. I voted for Obama and nothing seemed to get accomplished. I voted for Trump and things are happening. Yes he is unorthodox, but generally speaks for the silent, forgotten middle class HARD working voter. She's right about the new format of media that depends on hits or controversies to sustain advertisers. Don't blame Trump. Blame the information being released. WE ARE NOT THE MOST ARTICULATE. BUT NOT STUPID.

Andrea Vitalich people who say "nothing got done" seem to forget we were in and sinking further into one of the worse economic catastrophes in modern history.

Kolin Van Kampen Wasn't it a Republican controlled Congress when Obama was in office? Could it be that "nothing got done" because the Republicans refused to work with Obama?

This interview is revelatory in that it solidifies all the reasons why she lost. How disrespectful in your hour of defeat to pretend not to know congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez. You lost because you had no message worth listening to to bring your democratic constituents out to the pole. Sad.

Lliane Hunter I think she just forgot her name since it's a double name or something. She knew about her just forgot the name.
