      ‘Stephen Colbert interviews the guy who should be the president’

    2. Muni Math by Peter Felton

      Bernie is better, brighter, bolder, realer, heartier, more hardworking, etc. etc. etc. than every other American politician currently in office from the top down.

    3. Michael Hunter

      Since when was it not difficult for him to work with him, even before the insurrection?

    4. Gary Hopponen

      Manchi n suck get him to play the game instead of kissing ass

      I’m glad Sleepy Joe did the smart thing and brought in so many of the other smart and talented people who competed for the nomination, as well as those who served under Obama. Cheeto Jesus claimed he would only hire the best and brightest, although many of his choices weren’t either of those things, then he ended up firing them for disagreeing with him or throwing them under a bus when there was a scandal. I wish the GOP would find the REAL, true Jesus, because the Cheeto Jesus just makes them crazier by the day. Instead of love for all their fellow man, all they have is hate in their hearts; instead of seeing the truth, their vision is obscured by webs of lies; instead of peace, their minds are full of vengeance, grievance and pettiness. I’m no holy roller, but the sickness within the GOP is directly correlated to their fealty to Cheeto Jesus.

    8. Jennifer Smith

      It was just a "peaceful protest", Bernie.

    9. Eleanor May

      I love Senator Bernie Sanders! He is such an amazing man, honest and hard working, he actually works for the people instead of himself!

      1. Jennifer Smith

        seriously? what has Bernie ever done?

    10. Demie Cazaux

      Amen...a decent human being who makes sense and whom u can understand.

    11. Mitsos Boy

      Oncle Bernie, I love you!

    12. Tiffany k

      Bernie has done more to shift the global collective mindset in a positive direction than any other human on the planet! Every time I hear him speak, my mood is elevated💕

    13. Tiffany k

      I ❤ Bernie!

    16. Andro Mando

      Can we get rid of the military budget yet XD

    17. rowell669

      Bernie is popular because he is the real deal. He cares and it shows. We can feel it. He makes us feel like we matter. And nothing is more important than that. I love Bernie and I always will. He is president in my heart.

    18. mplsgrrl 2021

      Bernie showed the young people government needs to care.

    20. D'ran Dana

      No thank you, you absolute legend.

    21. V Uisce

      Watching the USA from afar, but have to say, Good old Bernie Saunders! It's thrilling to know he is being heard by younger people and that they appreciate the message.

    22. Barbara Dellis

      Sanders is a political futurist with a vision of a MUCH better tomorrow! Bless him and may he live long...

    23. Erika Driscoll

      Bernie is a genuine humane human working in politics, a unicorn! He deserves more than being the flipping chairman of the budget committee! With that said, time to TAX THE RICH baby! Maybe that is why the Elite are trying so hard to promote digital money, another way to further hide and protect their wealth.

    24. Kevin Blier

      It is absolutely amazing that Sanders and the MSM continue with the charade of the "Big Lie"! The fact that dems cheat in elections goes back 150 years, they are the party of corruption going back to Tammany Hall, and the evidence from 2020is overwhelming...just no court would take the time to look at the evidence! Let's wait and see what the audit in Arizona finds...


      We love Bernie

    26. nathan ferron

      Wonder why the DNC wouldn't let you run Bernie? Why oh why do we have to get Biden instead? Everyone knows you would have killed Trump and literally the entire world would be better off.

    27. Bubby Redmon

      I don't know how he ever worked with any republican idiots.

    28. Parajulis

      the younger generation appreciates bernie; the struggles been real for awhile now

    29. Terry McKernan

      Must be getting close there starting to panic🗽

    30. bloomsandbeams

      King shit. If America has a conscience, Bernie is it.

    31. jean reynolds

      God bless you, Bernie and may you live for very long time: the country needs you.

    32. Claiming Light

      It's time for a moderate party. We need to unite under the banner of putting America in a stable, intelligent place. Let's forget about policy for a bit. Let's try to be a country that supports the vote, dismisses twitter outrage, condemns insurrection and returns to evidence-based justice.

    33. Megan

      love when you have bernie on!!

    34. Kimberly Owens

      HAND TO GOD🙏🏿, this morning 5/5/2021, with my UBER driver we got into a current events discussion that culminated into his opinion that the POWERS TO BE WERE TOO OLD TO PROPERLY RUN THE COUNTRY. He ran off a list of who was talking about and yes we all know the names anyway, he got to Bernie Sanders and in my mind I switched to him remembering the conversation I had with my child at a stop light while she was driving me to work some time after the 2020 election. I cant quote it but I said, yada...yada and Bernie Sanders said yada,,, yada my CHILD "what, what what did UNCLE BERNIE SAY!! I'm looking at my child like she had 2 heads. " what do you know about Bernie Sanders? She runs off yada, yada and by the time we got to the next stop light my mind went to OBAMA'S DROP THE MIC EXIT BANQUET. During that he committed about family relationships and he stated and no I can't quote it but his oldest child STEPPED to him over a concert she wanted to go to which he disapproved of. Anyway , apparently she got the courage to do that from UNCLE BERNIE and OBAMA knew it. Barack relayed this incident and turned the evil eye on Uncle Bernie because his child said , I'm Sick of Presidents Running My Life!! where did she get that from, UNCLE BERNIE and he sat at his table with a grin from ear to ear and eyes sparkling like SANTA. So we get to next red light and my child looks at me like I'm the one with the 2 heads, "SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY, MA YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT UNCLE BERNIE IS ABOUT" . Well of course I do but let her ENLIGHTEN ME. Anyway those were my thoughts until my UBER driver stated "Bernie Sanders, really not only is he old but he is loud and belligerent and SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY WHO CAN HE RELATE TO HIM". I stated the ," YOUTH " . What?? According to my 27 year old daughter Young People Love Uncle Bernie...... Well now we know why. Bernie Sanders realizes that young people know what they want and know what changes have to be made to protect their future and he LISTENS to what THEY HAVE TO SAY. He respects their opinions and Apparently Draws Motivation from Them. He brings fresh, youthful ideas to address age old problems to the table then slices through the Bullshit and gets right to the heart of the problem. YOU GO UNCLE BERNIE!!!👍🏾👏🏿

    35. Jonney Silver

      How dare you Bernie talking about undermining democracy when you support the biggest power grab in America: Court packing, busting the filibuster, banning voter ID nationwide, spreading ballot harvesting nationwide, DC statehood ...etc You ignore all of this, then complain about Georgea common-sense voting law. HIPOCRISY!! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE INDEPENDENT!!!

    36. Jonney Silver

      Why all the hypocrisy Stephen? What about all the democrats who voted against certifying the 2016 election. I don't hear you calling them out for spreading a BIG LIE.

    37. Jonney Silver

      Well maybe if you acted really independent and not a dem toy they'd work with you.

    38. Sophie Oshaughnessy

      Kicky tie, Bernie! Hang in there❤️

    39. Kanji Story

      Bernie for president!!!

    40. Max Bryson

      My name is Stephen Colbert, and this show is sponsored by the DNC.

    41. j

      Not all superheros wear capes or lie and threaten world domination to force people conform with injustice and suffering. Some just have a lot of love, strong conviction, painstaking patience, their sharp words, and better yet, a democracy

    42. Herr von Boi

      i almost cried. bernie is golden!

    43. tdm123

      Platitudes, platitudes, platitudes...

    44. Raphael Rettner D.C.

      Hi come we never hear about Bernie's time he served in the army as a colonel? aka Colonel Sanders

    45. Leonard Collins

      Don't understand we giving non citizens more than citizens new York want to give people from the border 15,000 dollars if they come too new York what about citizens in New York and anywhere else 1400 don't add up

    46. Jimmy Hirr

      It's hard to work with senators who supported the insurrection? Imagine how hard it is to work with a senator that whines about how the DNC is rigged against him whenever he loses a primary.

    47. BioMutarist

      He's a true national US treasure, you guys deserve to be proud of your new Chairman of the Budget Committee. Bern on Bernie, Bern on.

    48. Cat's Meow

      Love Bernie. He is TRULY a man of the people!

      How can anyone work with this Republican trumpisum regime, holding our Democracy hostage with these lies, conspiracies, , racism and division. This is a nightmare for the American People.

    51. Comrade Rob

      I love Bernie

    52. jjohn4874

      Then censor Pelosi and Schumer... they were behind it!! The knew about it and arranged to let Antifa and BLM in! And in addition they short staffed the Police Dept. and had the Capital Security wave people in!! It was NOT Trump supporters, they were still watching Trump speak at his rally!! Just stop the lies, asshole!!!

    53. Frog Man

    54. gagatube

      Senator Sanders - America's greatest political figure of the 21st century to date. 👏👏👏

    55. Eric Navarre

      This man spent his life serving the public and is still inspired by the people, is decent, and has kept his integrity. That is the definition of a politician.

    56. cortarelva

      Having that child imprisoner Amy klobuchar as a guest made me lose all respect for this show. Goodbye.

    57. mhkpt

      The elephant in the room isn't Reublicans like Cruz or Hawley, it's "Democrats" like Manchin and Sinema who gleefully vote down an increase in the minimum wage and stand in the way of increasing taxes on the rich, who have been positively raking it in during this pandemic, to pay for the economic recovery. If you haven't, watch the video of Kyrsten Sinema almost DANCING as she votes down the minimum wage increase. Sickening.

    58. Jon Turnbull

      Still bagging on this man the left just don't stop must be so exhausting fighting for something and getting now where. The fact Politicians are on late not talk shows really shows the sad start of late night comedy. Sad Sad Country the United States definitely not the land of the free or home of the brave 😜🤣

    59. gigi stoner

      I was reading an article while listening to this: "DNC gathers opposition research over 20 potential GOP candidates." Talk about what nightmares are made of! Making the list: Trump, Ron DeSantis, Tucker Carlson, Mike Lindell, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Rick Scott, Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo

    60. Just Another Rich Kid

      Bernie’s the man.

    61. Wayne T

      Sss-senator socialist sanders,must be smoking crack to vote or listen to this man.

    62. Pjay Pender

      Who's this "we" Senator Sanders? You're only a Democrat when you want to use us to run for President.

    63. Joanne S.

      I love Bernie 💕💕💕

    64. Imad Gailani

      This man is great ! I feel so happy when I hear him talk. Thank you senator for everything you do for the good of this country.

    65. Enjoy Life

      Viejo loco ... give it a couple of years you will be gone for good .. can’t wait

    66. Malibu Moon

      Sanders finds it difficult to work. Period.

    67. S J

      Seeing Bernie's passion for people makes me choke with emotion....♥️♥️♥️♥️

    68. Jim Miller

      Repu blicans don't compromise. deplorables

    69. A YM

      Long live Sen. Sanders. What an inspiring, intelligent, compassionate, courageous and beautiful human being. Much love....

    70. T Stadt

      The American President. Whether the establishment likes it or not. Class act, that's Bernie Sanders. 💙🐦

    71. Nami koi


    72. Polly Tiks

      It’s not really 50/50 - turns out Martha McSally invaded Kyrsten Sinema’s body and is voting GOP.

    73. Tom Wid

      Howly work with Sanders for a 1400 check, and ultimately vote against the package what kind of 4d chess is this on his part?!?!?

    74. Enrico Chet

      Sorry, I have to say it once and for all: please get your subtitles right. This is annoying.

    75. Ziyan Lu

      wow the purple

    76. Daddy Fitz

      They gonna get voted out. Bet

    77. A Cote

      why bother to work with the traitors.

    78. Chosen People

      Old white man with dementia who talks a lot but does nothing. No wonder the left loves him. We love in others what we love in ourselves. Failures.

    79. Chosen People

      Bye bye bernie, guess I'll never caaaa'aaaare. Guess I'll never care.

    80. End Political Corruption

      Several of us organized for a few months to launch a grassroots campaign for Bernie in our area of the state. We had just held a press conference, ordered signs and paraphernalia, and planned a few visibility events. Then the pandemic hit hard and shut all that down. We were really hoping to get him to make a visit; we were skipped over in 2016. Have never met him, nor attended one of his speeches. Really regretful how it all turned out, as he likely won't run again. More tragically, I'm not sure there's anyone just yet who can step up in his place. We screwed up bad not electing this man.

    81. Mikaila Crawford

      Thank you Bernie ❤️

    82. Tempe Snyder

      Yes, thanks Bernie!

    83. BJae X

      They should B in PRISON they helpD the TRAITORS

    84. Gabriel Duenez

      Thank you Bernie. I wish it was you for president

    85. fredric kroll

      WONDERFUL!!! We would have needed him so much in 1968, after MLK and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated!! I know that he was already working on the ground, getting himself arrested in the civil rights movement, but he was presumably considered to be too young to be able to get elected to office yet. Fortunately, AOC has given the lie to the age-old myth that people can be too young to be politicians - and hopefully, AOC, Bernie and their allies can succeed in outweighing (or even convincing??) Manchin. I wonder what Manchin's constituents in West Virginia - one of the poorest states in the nation - are thinking and doing?

    86. Ole Jensen

      :-)) Love Bernie

    87. Cavegoblin EXTREME

      Hope and dreams are a frail but powerful thing. Support your dreamers everyone.

    88. Beach Waves

      Awww, you inspire us too Bernie.💯❤

    89. Beach Waves

      Machin don't care if Dems don't have control as he is a republican acting like a democrat.

    90. Claudia Dunbar

      What a nice man! Love you, Bernie :-)

    91. Sam Says

      ask the senators how they like working with clown bernie

    93. BaldingClamydia

      Look, it's my president! :/ Love ya Bernie!

    94. Lara Palma

      Probably the only altruistic pollie I've ever seen Except maybe those putin opponents

      1. Lara Palma

        You know, the poisoned ones 🥶🥵

    95. Rhiannon RAINE

      Bernie! Looking very good! This man is the best human in politics ♡ he has changed so much of not just the US, but the world ♡

    96. Frank Rinaldi

      Good luck America with these guys in power I will pray for you Americans your friend from Canada😎

    97. Dennis Lacroix

      It's nice to see the push for change to do good. I want to see everyone be included, no one living on the streets and not having to worry about weather or not they will be living on the street tomorrow. I just don't understand what the point of a right wing party is when all they seem to want to do is bad... You shouldn't become a politician to get rich, you should do it to make your country a better place for everyone.

    98. Tom Hearns

      Jeebus. Even Bernie is brainwashed. What a joke.

    99. Matt John

      I'm tired of "balance" and "bipartisanship". The trumpers attempted a effing coup. The civility the Dem senators are showing the Republicans is misplaced. Bernie is the one who gets it. But still the old pols need to retire. We need tough ones. Nina Turner perhaps ✊⚖☮🌎

    100. OlNineToes

      I love Senator Sanders as much as he loves percentages, equality, and accountability.
