Reply hans lund says: November 17, 2018 at 8:25 pm Give this guy some airtime and he will be a true candidate. Reply Michael Myers's Sis says: November 17, 2018 at 8:38 pm FINALLY! Ojeda said the truth to stop fighting Trump and GOP when they are wearing brass knuckles and Democrats are using pillows. Time to knuckle up and fight back. Reply LL NN says: November 17, 2018 at 9:42 pm He talks like us, he is tough but compassionate. He's what we need! Reply Jerry Mathurin says: November 17, 2018 at 10:27 pm Well that’s not what a Democrat is about but he’s a veteran so I’ll give him an ear since he’s my brother. But get away from the toxic piece of garbage 2 party system. If MSNBC gives a voice then I’m extremely suspicious because they’re a big part of this corrupt system. They don’t support change or any free issues hurting people. Reply Ally says: November 17, 2018 at 10:59 pm Bernies supporters would support Ojeda easy peasy. They need to link up and keep it real af. This is what the people actually want, someone who genuinely cares about the american people. God bless him on his journey Reply peter8488 says: November 17, 2018 at 11:26 pm I haven't registered to vote for years because I thought it pointless because everyone on the platform seemed equally bad, but this guy is worth voting for to take a chance at someone who seems very promising and genuine, it break my spirit if he changes in office.

Long shot presidential bid. They are undermining and mocking him while they are interviewing him. Disgraceful. MSDNC. Reply TheHeavyb1985 says: November 18, 2018 at 3:31 am Didnt you just lose?

Reply Carson Smith says: November 18, 2018 at 5:22 am Ojeda would crush Trump in a general election. Reply Rodney Hubbard says: November 18, 2018 at 5:48 am He was Major in the Army. He commands respect and understands justice. Reply Oh Pahleese says: November 18, 2018 at 6:40 am How does 2000 strong border patrol effectively deal with 3k, 4k 5k, 6k or 7k peoole attempting to enter this country illegally? How do you determine if criminals, drugs or terrorists haven't infiltrated within this group? It's irresponsible of the left! We have TSA and other agents who effectively prevent people from rest of the world coming in, what's the difference? We have border patrol at northern border, no complaints there… Reply Biggie Scooby says: November 18, 2018 at 9:07 am What is his healthcare policy? Didn’t hear much specifics just a lot of cliches & tough guy rhetoric. Reply QuarterMan88 says: November 18, 2018 at 10:29 am OJEDA JEDI!

Reply history view says: November 18, 2018 at 1:41 pm Go get them Ojeda, I'am by your side. Reply Jeevan Mammen says: November 18, 2018 at 2:00 pm I hope he runs in the republican primaries. I guarantee you he would win. With the dems, it will be hard with Bernie and Warren potentially running. Reply The Home Plate Special says: November 18, 2018 at 3:17 pm who would most likely win the debate best against trump?rep. beto orourke v trumpsen. amy klobuchar v trumplt. richard ojeda v trumpmr. andrew yang v trumpsen. kamala harris v trumpmr. mark cuban v. trump I would say Sen. Amy because she wouldnt make outlandish or radical claims, nor bait, or have free policies to defend and trump would look the most extreme, unstudied, childish and ridiculos next to her.

If you don't tell him to self deport you are promoting criminal activity Reply ThreePalmsII says: November 18, 2018 at 6:21 pm Richard has my vote. He's a fighter, doesn't roll over for Republicans like democrats do. Reply colours_ [Education for Peace] says: November 18, 2018 at 6:39 pm 'Democrat' Richard Ojeda is a hateful hard-left individual. Those who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 embrace what Ojeda represents because he is as unintelligent and uneducated and also hates. There is no difference between him and those millions of hard-left French citizens who vote for the far-right. Ojeda, Trump and H. Clinton are all rotten. Reply Shawn Moorsp says: November 18, 2018 at 7:34 pm Its weard in Ohio after people voted everyone was more interested in his election in west virgina then our own state, I dont know why people in WV voted against him Reply Honesty Crystallizes says: November 18, 2018 at 7:43 pm Stone Cold Steve Austin of Politics.

Not by a long shot. Reply Nestor Menendez says: November 18, 2018 at 9:31 pm Please Ojeda run as an independent and take over the corrupt system. Reply AD Nunya says: November 18, 2018 at 10:07 pm Would you have reported about his gain record if he didn't announce his running for POTUS? I doubt it because he's not a corporate corrupt Democrat and certainly not a Repuklican!!!!

Reply Patrick Jenkins says: November 19, 2018 at 3:15 am 🗿👍😀 OMG, I've got to say it: He's rapidly becoming one of my favorite White guys in American politics. The fighting spirit, his southern accent, even the haircut❗I'm not easily impressed. I dare say that there's something refreshingly genuine about Mr. Ojeda (S.F.) Reply RatChefDave says: November 19, 2018 at 4:45 am If you move the democrats left than you move the Republicans to actually be republican as simple as that. We should all be happy bout that. Reply David Williamson says: November 19, 2018 at 9:43 am 1:25 “Why should a lobbyist have better access to myself than you do?” Reply bambusario says: November 19, 2018 at 1:05 pm Democratic National Convention Poo-Bahs are behind the curve but are not brain dead. They know the Bernies and Betos, et all, have much to offer as Progressives but they also know none of the current Progressive Darlings can turn Trump Voters. OJEDA IS THE ONLY ONE who can flip a sizable portion of Trumps base and THE MEDIA LOVES HIM as well. He is the DNC dream candidate and you can bet they support him behind the scenes. Finally, on election day 2020 the DNC knows they won't lose many Progressive voters because there in no other place for them to go. Reply Mike Oley says: November 19, 2018 at 2:35 pm I give msnbc credit for giving ojeda a platform here. I really like what he’s campaigning for. There’s a new wave of fresh democrats rising who share his ideals and could make some serious noise in 2020. This was a fantastic interview. Reply Nianator says: November 19, 2018 at 3:28 pm I voted for trump and I like this guy, but don’t know if he knows enough to run a country. Have to hear more then putting boots on the ground Reply Dara Ramasa says: November 19, 2018 at 4:50 pm Army Vet too and a Democrat best wish to him and 2020. Reply Dylan George says: November 19, 2018 at 5:17 pm I like this guy. He has my early support as a Democrat in the primary Reply bum knuckle says: November 19, 2018 at 7:41 pm I'm already sold. Reply Elliot W says: November 19, 2018 at 10:53 pm Yup, this is the guy. Vote Ojeda! Reply Boomer19771 says: November 19, 2018 at 11:02 pm Ojeda Avenatti 2020, that'd be an interesting ticket Reply US Election Center says: November 19, 2018 at 11:08 pm I am basically what some would consider a die hard Trump supporter. But, I am really interested in Ojeda! I can't really make a decision yet, of course, because he seems foggy on issues, at least on his websites. Anyhow, if I was a Democrat (registered) I would fully back Ojeda. Now, for the general election, I would have to know his positions better but this guy has me hooked, but not out of the water. Reply Busterpeek21 says: November 20, 2018 at 8:26 am He's great. Why would anyone vote for a Beto, or Kamala, over him? Reply BBAOmega says: November 20, 2018 at 1:10 pm Spread his name around folks Reply Jeanine Wright says: November 20, 2018 at 6:45 pm I like what he’s saying right now.

Reply Andrew Sabori says: November 21, 2018 at 8:04 pm This is the dem we need to challenge trump! Reply Aleksi Lepisto says: November 22, 2018 at 4:36 am For everyone saying Bernie is still gonna have a chance, no way. This guy is younger and makes you think he actually WILL fight. Bernie seems like that smart crazy scientist who might have some good ideas but when it comes down to who's going to kick in the door and start taking names, I don't see Bernie as that guy. I think that's the problem. Trump acted like he would be that guy and it appealed. People want strength and leadership, often more than they even care about specific policies.

All of their policies are designed to stomp on White people, and you should know that. The democratic party has washed their hands of Whites, because they believe that demographics have shifted enough that they no longer need to pander to Whites, and they DON'T. They actually do everything in their power to demonize Whites, blame Whites, castigate Whites, demand apologies from Whites, demand Whites to feel guilty for being White. YOU are just a virtue signaling ally to the anti-White democratic party, but guess what buddy, they hate you, and everything they do will only endanger your children, and your grandchildren. Death to the democratic party. Reply Joey Boombatz says: November 23, 2018 at 4:28 pm A a republican you got my vote God Damnit. Get this Clown trump away from our military. He has no clue what our country is about. I thank you for your Service and you have my vote in Florida Major. Thank you for your service to our country and our troops. . Now its time for you to serve our civilians. Thank you Major. BRING EM HOME!!! Miami Florida !! we support you ! Reply Joseph Himes says: November 24, 2018 at 12:04 am KNUCKLE UP Reply Christian Petersen says: November 24, 2018 at 11:41 am Huh? Why does MSNBC like to have Ojeda on, treat him with respect and let him talk about his policies that resonate with americans? Reply DeAndre Enrico says: November 24, 2018 at 2:19 pm I need to hear him really actually explain why he voted for Trump. I honestly don't see how I could trust the judgement of anyone who did that. And the answers he gave hear completely skirted the question.

Reply Mark Burdette says: December 17, 2018 at 2:23 pm Being a Democrat is bad enough. But being a Democrat in WV is disgraceful. Every Democrat from WV that has won has done NOTHING but destroy WV more. Once in office, we go on back burner again Reply Mark Burdette says: December 17, 2018 at 2:28 pm Another guarentee is that 1 good Democrat absolutely can not change minds and crooked ways of all the other dirty Democrats that are in office and feel they deserve everything and it's my way or no way attitude Reply mrich21087 says: December 17, 2018 at 3:21 pm If he throws in some non intervention foreign policy and some balance budget amendment talk he will pull all independents and younger suburban conservatives into his camp. He can’t get the Democratic nomination though because he isn’t a pro abortion extremist. edit He is also a straight white male that served in the military so lots of strikes against him as viewed by the DNC. Reply Polska Number 1. says: December 19, 2018 at 2:28 am He wouldn’t win the Democratic primary. He has a better chance of winning a Republican primary than a Democrat one. Reply Polska Number 1. says: December 19, 2018 at 2:29 am A democrat I might listen to. Interesting. Reply No Matters says: December 19, 2018 at 7:27 am This will probably be the last you ever hear about Ojeda on msnbc. They are not going to go out of their way to give him any free publicity. You can see it their faces with his answers. Reply Barbara Roberts says: January 2, 2019 at 6:09 am Ojeda is right, even the Democrats make it all about "how much money" they have in their campaign…so that means they are "winning" because they are getting the most in campaign funds? That is the part I hate…what SHOULD matter is what the candidate is saying, are they really speaking to the people are just "grandstanding"? I am so sick of the "Financial campaign game"…let it be about the person they are the integrity they have how they speak up and take chances and risk being real? I don't see Ojeda playing head games with the American people, he is not fooling around. And he can relate and knows what is going on and what so many of us are going through. Ojeda is on the right track…and though I don't think trump will make it to run for another term (he is so doomed and so dangerous he will either resign or be impeached) I KNOW that Ojeda could roll with the punches trump might try to give him…and I know he will fight back but not in a petty immature way like trumpchild..

Reply Sky Racing-Forums says: March 6, 2019 at 6:17 am He could have gotten the democratic party millions of votes, it's veterans and the working class that the democratic party turned its back on.
