On the upside of Donald Trump victory on the Republican side, all of the things corporate pundits have been telling us about conservative voters weren’t true. You don’t have to be pro-megabanks, hyper-religious, or a thousand percent on Israel’s side all the time. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

  1. I think it's a bad idea to give in and vote for a racist (Trump) just bc there is nobody else to vote for. It's not a celebrity show or a game. It would be 4 years of a bigoted, childish dictator.

  2. Ever wonder what the next 9/11 will be? That will be the day the government does everything it can to stomp out the revolution with its most powerful weapon, fear..

  3. It's 2008 all over again,but this time we have a corporate creation for the right-wing.Just like Obama pretending to be progressive,we now have trump pretending to be ultra conservative.Like Obama,he will promise hope and change to millions of people.Like Obama,he will change nothing and like Obama,if he were a real threat to corporate America's bottom line,the media would have already destroyed him,like they did to the real threat to there power,Bernie Sanders.

  4. So TYT declares Donald Trump's "victory"… even though he's further from the republican nomination than Hillary Clinton is the democratic. Meanwhile, they keep telling people Bernie Sanders can still win?

  5. So what Jimmy is suggesting is let Trump into the White House and give him executive order, right to select a supreme court judge, and the codes to the nuclear missiles in hopes that in 2 years the House and the Senate magically get filled with liberal progressives and in 4 years Bernie becomes president? What if Trump starts a war like GWB and guarantees himself another 4 years? Are you willing to risk 8 years of Trump presidency – heck even 4 years of it – on the possibility of maybe-perhaps getting a Sanders presidency in the unforeseeable future? You're willing to gamble with the fate of your country and the rest of the world for that?

  6. Trump could easily say 'Free public university, yeah we could do that! Universal healthcare, why not? We'll do ours better than every other country!"
    For other Republicans, these are ideological barriers they can't cross.
    For Trump, they're just negotiating positions.
    He could easily try to co-opt these Progressive positions to appeal to Bernie voters, and he'd be successful at it.
    And what Jimmy said is probably true 3:59
    This strengthens the "Bernie or Bust" position.

  7. The est. knows the unwashed horde aka the public better then they know themselves. Which is why they inserted Donald Trump , a democrat, to run as a republican. Thereby insuring a democrat to continue the Obama agenda. The laugh is on all the bigots that support Trump, who could care less about them and will lose to Hillary in the end.

  8. What jimmy said at the end is exactly what I've been saying all along. The problem is that involves voting an authoritarian piece of shit into office, which I can't bring myself to do. Bernie or bust.

  9. We'll see if Trump wins the nomination, and if he does, how well he does in the general.
    I don't think the majority of the GOP will be comfortable going in the direction that Trump is talking about.
    His Democrat side is already coming out when his audience is for the general election.
    But crazier things have and continue to happen.

  10. Why is it that a country that has far more Nobel Prize winners than any country in the world can't come up with better choices than Trump and Clinton? Is there something about politics that attracts the worst kind of people?

  11. Remember when TYT was so sure Trump was just runing for prez as a stunt, and there's no way he'd win, remember that? And remember now how they are talking like they know things and they are so sure he's a big racists and all his followers are big dumb racists, do they not realize that labeling an entire political party as dumb racists is racist or the worst type of stereotyping, and yet they think they are morally superior? Unbelievable.

  12. Sideshow Don versus the Wicked Witch of Wall Street. I halfway suspect my own bad karma caused me to be born into this era so I could “improve my character through adversity’, and with each new day this gets validated.

  13. So wanting to deport illegal Mexicans, and build a border wall to keep them from illegally entering the United States is racism? I guess TYT supports foreigners breaking U.S. laws. Wanting to promote National security by placing a "temporary" ban on Muslim immigrants from hostile regions to protect American lives from a possible attack like Paris, Cologne, Belgium, San Bernardino, etc?

  14. Great analysis Cenk. You need to be racist to gain Republican voters…TYT are idiots. You make such a stupid statement like that and then you wonder why everyone in society seems divided and is arguing with one another. I'll tell you what Cenk. If being racist is the quality you need to gain Republican voters then it must also be a quality for liberals as Bernie believes "white people don't know what it's like to live in a ghetto" even though more white people are on welfare. Bernie is specifically pandering to the black community as every Liberal/SJW was conditioned to do from school. He is pathetic, just like TYT.

  15. Oh great, now Jimmy has turned the chucklehead Bernie groupies into Trump groupies. It didn't take much, as informed thinking is not their strong suit. What doesn't kill you may make you stronger in the movies, but rarely in real life. And given Trump's temperament, what kills you, kills you.

  16. These people call Trump voters stupid but they are still ignorant on the fact that Trump isnt kicking mexicans out. He is kicking ILLEGALS out. Illegals come from many other countries besides mexico you idiots!!!

  17. I've been thinking about this Donald Trump presidency for a while.  I honestly believe he is  a horrible candidate. HOWEVER, I am willing to let the country burn for 4 years to send a very strong message to the democrats that I will no longer accept a corporate shill as a democratic candidate.

  18. People that believe in free markets, small government, self accountability, and homeland security are people too. Some are even agnostic scientists. What a surprise! I mean, how dehumanizing can Democrats be without becoming full blown Nazis?
