To see the play by play of the live tweets by Michael “Vass” Vasquez during the first 2016 Democratic Debate by CNN, you can visit @MVConsult or for those without Twitter I present it all in chronological order. 64 tweets in total, or roughly one every 2 minutes of debate.
Interesting that CNN pre debate panel look as uninterested as the nation is about dishonest politicians or Socialism.
Wow, CNN starts debate for next prez all about current @POTUS . Is that ego or what?
Clinton, “Wealthy pay too little in taxes” – Exactly how much as Clinton voluntarily paid in tax over her lifetime – $0
Ok, Cooper gets a nod for taking on Clinton flipflops and sticking to his guns. Sadly, Clinton still waffling in her answer.
Clinton record of success – as Senator NY – 413 Bills offered, 3 bills on naming parks passed. Real success and bipartisan cooperation there
Sanders – US should be like Norway? NYC has 4x as many people as that country.
Sanders – need young inexperienced voters as opposed to older experienced voters for Dems to win
Ego – Hillary wants to save capitalism from itself. Aren’t we so lucky she is around
Sanders, correction because most small biz not created by top 1%
Wow, Cooper first question to each candidate clearly shows Dem candidates are all screwed up
Wow, Webb gets to speak on defending guns and sounds like he wasn’t ready to speak
It’s not the gun lobby that stops gun restriction legislation, the public opposes what Dems want. The polls prove it.

#DemDebate A real issue is that Americans want a President that they can trust. Thus Clinton polling has suffered. POTUS agrees is an issue
#demdebate There is no response to failure on ethics, which why @HillaryClinton did not respond
#DemDebate Time to pander to Black voters. Black Lives Matter, but not all lives Sen. Sanders?
O’malley joins Sanders in pandering to Black voters #DemDebate

How does just being a woman equate to Presidential policy? Seriously, what does that mean @HillaryClinton ? #DemDebate
Sanders talking about voter apathy, that’s not political revolution. He dodged the questions. Big red flag there. Pun intended. #DemDebate
Being a woman isnt reason to be elected any more than being Black, Christian, or liking Butter Pecan ice cream. That’s pandering #DemDebate
But @HillaryClinton you have a record of failure and hyperpartisanship in over 2 decades in politics. #DemDebate
Climate change, not more on fighting ISIS, islamic terrorism, job creation? 2 dozen green companies failed on Taxpayer handouts #DemDebate
By the way, China and India creating more pollution than America can save, ever. #DemDebate
How is climate change a moral issue? And recall 20 years ago scientists were calling for global cooling. Why are they right now? #DemDebate
Notice during whole debate @HillaryClinton disregarding rules of debate and talking over everyone. More of her making own rules #DemDebate
OK, so someone needs to fact check if @HillaryClinton had a nanny while she was a lawyer. I see this coming back on her. #DemDebate
Country has yet to afford it. @POTUS has added over $8 trillion to national debt. Dems just want to add to it apparently. #DemDebate
like Keystone Clinto avoids taking positions until issue is a clear polling winner. Why not take a stand? #DemDebate
Isn’t Government supposed to be about compromise? Dems are talking about partisanship not compromise #DemDebate
