The Late Show host Stephen Colbert devoted his entire opening monologue Thursday night to weighing in on the Democratic debate. From his perspective, the night had a clear winner: Kamala Harris.

Joe Biden was never asked about his gaffes, groping or past plagiarism. Elizabeth Warren never had to explain faking Native American ancestry.

On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, speaking as someone who unequivocally proclaimed "I want Donald Trump to lose," said that last night's debate was a "disaster" for Democrats. Scarborough made a four-pronged argument: first, Dems went after each other rather than attacking President Trump. Second and third: the unanimous Dem support for health-care-for-life for illegal immigrants, and for making illegal entry into the US no longer illegal, will lose the Dem candidate several states. Scarborough also said Biden's performance might have been the "most disturbing" he's seen since Reagan's first 1984 debate.
Along with the rest of his MSNBC colleagues late Thursday night and early Friday after night two of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate, Hardball host Chris Matthews similarly professed his newfound love for candidate Kamala Harris not just having a good night but “an amazing night in history” which made Matthews wonder whether former Vice President Joe Biden and his candidacy will “survive.”
In addition to all but agreeing with President Trump’s “Sleepy Joe” nickname, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel thought Thursday was a terrible debate night for Vice President Joe Biden because of a heated exchange he had with Senator Kamala Harris (CA) over federal busing in the south during the civil rights movement. According to the panel, the idea that states had the right to make laws for themselves that differed from one another was a travesty with its roots in racism.

Following her tussle in Thursday night’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate with former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was promptly touted as a hero on MSNBC’s set by the assembled motley crew of characters, boasting that the “brave” and “powerful” candidate was someone who spoke created “some extraordinary exchanges” and provided “vision” for African-Americans that she could win.
Following Wednesday’s portion of the first 2020 Democratic debate, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel decided that Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) was the winner, while some thought it belonged to former HUD Secretary Julian Castro.
