Joe Biden Jimmy Kimmel Live Interview
Joe Biden sat down for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live one day after Nancy Pelosi formally announced that the House of Representatives will open impeachment proceedings against President Trump due to the fact that Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for him releasing military aid authorized by Congress to the country. Biden expressed deep concern about Trump's actions, saying "It's such a blatant abuse of power that I don't think it can stand. Based on the material that they acknowledged today, it seems to me it's awful hard to avoid the conclusion that it is an impeachable offense and a violation of constitutional responsibility."
3rd Democratic Debate
The third Democratic debate in Houston brought the top ten candidates in the Democratic field onto the same stage for the first time and there was no shortage of lively discussion among the group. The top three candidates - Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders - stuck largely to their typical script, with neither of them delivering any major blows, to the likely relief of Joe Biden. The remaining seven candidates received ample time to deliver their message and answer questions from the moderators, but none appeared to deliver a breakout performance that would shake the top of the field up.
Bernie Sanders The View Interview
Bernie Sanders sat down with the ladies of "The View" to discuss his Presidential campaign and where he thinks the race is at a few months before Iowa voters head to their caucus sites. Sanders got in a heated disagreement with Meghan McCain after she challenged him to name a Republican Senator that he can work with and he responded that he used to love working with her late father and still enjoys a working relationship with retiring Senator Johnny Isaacson. When she retorted that "they're dead" he reminded her that "Johnny is not dead."
Kirsten Gillibrand This Week Interview
Kirsten Gillibrand sat down for an interview with Martha Raddatz of "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" where they discussed the major protests in Hong Kong and her belief that Donald Trump is on the wrong side of history in not standing up for the protesters. She also criticized Israel's decision to bar Democratic Congresswomen from entering the country, but refused to call for any repercussions. The Senator also discussed her proposal for an assault weapons ban and a gun buyback program.
Tom Steyer The View Interview
Tom Steyer sat down with the ladies of "The View" on ABC days after announcing that he was entering the race to be the Democratic nominee for President in 2020. The hosts pushed him to explain why he feels that he is the right person to take on Donald Trump and he responded that he's in the race because he is tired of having a "government that can’t get anything done" and he thinks he's the right person to start getting things done again.
Kamala Harris Jimmy Kimmel Live Interview
Kamala Harris sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to discuss her Presidential campaign and talk about her challenging Joe Biden's prior stances on school integration, busing, and race during the first democratic debate. She also spent time criticizing Donald Trump for siding with dictators over the United States intelligence community, his perceived abuses of power, and her vote to vote to provide 9/11 first responders with benefits after years of being in limbo.
