Jimmy and The Roots’ Tariq Trotter Rap a Recap of the Democratic Debate

Jimmy and The Roots’ Tariq Trotter Rap a Recap of the Democratic Debate

-Tonight was the second
Democratic debate, or, as nine candidates
called it, “Operation Destroy Joe Biden.” Everybody went after Biden,
but he said, with 10 people onstage,
it was less of a debate and more of like
a lightning round Or, in Bernie Sanders’ case,
a struck-by-lightning round. Hey, you got to respect
a guy who combs his hair with a balloon. You know what I’m saying? Then he floats away like
the old man from “Up.” It’s amazing. But it was a big night,
and, in the end, a lot of people thought Kamala Harris
won the be debate. She had what was probably —
[ Cheers and applause ] Yeah. She had what was probably
the line of the night. At one point, all the candidates
were talking over each other, and that’s when she stepped in
and dropped the hammer. Watch this. -Part of the issue of —
Hey, guys, you know what? America does not want to
witness a food fight. They want to
know how we’re going to put food on their table. -Wow.
[ Cheers and applause ] She was so good,
Trump endorsed Biden so that he wouldn’t
have to face her. It’s like, “Yeah, he’s great.” Tonight, we got to see Bernie
and Biden onstage together. Yeah, here they are right there.
Yeah. It looks like they’re debating
Viagra versus Cialis. Look, I’m not saying those two
are old, but their podiums were the only ones with tennis
balls the bottom. But get this — there was
a 40-year age difference between tonight’s candidates,
ranging from 37 to 77. With Pete Buttigieg next to
Biden, it looked like Take Your Kid to Work Day. Speaking of Buttigieg,
he said Democrats need to move the party forward
and claimed his opponents want to return to the 1990s. Hey, Pete, the top movies
right now are “Toy Story,” “Men in Black,”
and “Aladdin.” We’re already back in the ’90s. Sorry to say.
[ Cheers and applause ] Well, in addition to
the front-runners, we also got to know
some of the underdogs, and, early on, a lot of people
noticed that one of them, Andrew Yang,
wasn’t wearing a tie. Take a look at this. Yeah. When he realized you
can go casual, Biden tried to take off
his pants, and you go, “No, hey,
you can’t do that.” Finally, you guys,
so much happened during the two nights of the debate,
it’s hard to cover it all. so I was thinking we
could ask Tariq for a debate rap recap. I mean…
[ Cheers and applause ] I know the second debate just
ended 30 minutes ago, but, Tariq,
what do you think, bud? -I think we could pull that off.

  1. Biden struck by lightening rap, funny one Jimmy, I thought it was by a strong woman, same thing just more of a burn from the woman… ⚡😊🌊🌊🌊🌊

  2. My Stepfamily seduced me with a teddy bear and took my virginnygingin. Please help.

  3. Jimmy's looking like s***. He needs to quit drinking so much. Looks like a homeless vagrant in a $5,000 suit.

  4. She failed with that “food fight” line when she cut in to say it and continued speaking. She was no better than the rest of them.

  5. Absolutely!!!&YES INDEED Madame Kamala WON. Unity is the key……. Of Course, it's a debate……..However, regardless of how true or captivating, messages get terribly distorted and overlooked if several are spoken&heard at the same time. Play together as a team and work together Contemporaneously if the ULTIMATE&MOST Important Goal is shared by ALL.

  6. what is going on with jimmy…he looks so disheveled…looks like he just got out of bed and here he is making fun of bernie's hair when he too looks the same…has he relapsed again…we know he is a little alcoholic…..or i might be thinking too much maybe his kids kept him up all night

  7. He stands there with that shag haircut that obviously hasn't seen a comb while making fun of Bernie Sanders' uncombed hair. Do I care? Not at all, it's funny, lol.

  8. I'm convinced that Kamala could beat trump. Wouldn't that be a kicker? trump loses to a black woman.

  9. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I just love seeing his talent and the rest of the Roots created such good beats 😏

  10. Just watched his recap on night one and he didn’t make a single remark on ANY of the policies that the candidates talked about… he made soft jokes about their appearances, age, and how many people are running.
    The only person that got a real negative thing said about them was Biden because it’s obvious the establishment doesn’t want him to win.

    How about bring up the fact candidates mentioned confiscating guns, giving free health care to illegals, while at the same time making illegal boarder crossing a fine. As if those two things aren’t gonna attract more illegal coming. Some spoke about abolishing private insurance all together. 177million ppl have private insurance maybe some might want to keep their insurance, doctors etc. never mind the millions of people that will be out of jobs. How many working moms do you think work in the offices of Blue Cross Blue Shields and other insurance companies.
    Everyone single candidate said NO RESTRICTIONS AT ALL on abortions.
    85% of the country is against Late term abortions 100% of Dem candidates are for it. They all said abortions should be part of free healthcare for all. There’ are large segments of the country that are against Tax-payer abortions.

    These candidates are treating these issues as if they are held by the VAST MAJORITY of the party, nevermind the country. & they are not.
    They are running on a group of talking points that don’t align w/half the country at all, and they don’t align with a portion of its own party.
    They aren’t going to win over and Republicans w/this strategy, and they are going to scare away ALOT of centrists, independents, and some of their own party.

    If Donald Trump is as hated as the media/Hollywood want us to think then he should be easy to beat if they just ran a more moderate campaign.

    The far left are not going to vote for trump no matter what, so why would you gear your whole message to a group of people that you know will vote for you in order to get Trump out of office. Try appealing to the voters who aren’t sure bets.

    I think Dems are going to lose w/this strategy & then win in 2024 when Trump is no longer running.
    Unless they do something stupid like have AOC who will be 35 be the Dem nominee.

  11. I know people hate on Jimmy for a lot of reasons, but I do appreciate the way he showcases talents from guests and movie stars to his own crew and fellow comedians we might not see in a traditional format interview. This was awesome.
