("Dog on Fire") - Hi, I'm Bernie Sanders, I'm running for president. Our campaign is about taking on the powerful special interests that dominate our economic and political life. I'm talkin' about wall street, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, the military industrial complex, the private prison industry, and the large multinational corporations. - Oh, damn. (audience laughs) Yo, Bernie has entered the race. And did you hear his list of enemies? This guy doesn't mess around. He didn't come to play, he was like big banks, little banks, Tyra Banks, I'm shutting you all down. You're all going down. And you can tell that Bernie's serious about winning because he didn't rub his hair with a balloon before filming this video. (audience laughs) He's serious now, he's in it. No balloon this time. (audience laughs) We're going smooth. Now, if Bernie were to win the presidency he would become the oldest American president ever. Yes, and I mean that literally. He was born a few months before George Washington. But don't let Bernie's age fool you. This guy is as feisty as ever. Just look at how he responded to Howard Schultz threatening the Democratic Party. - Howard Schultz has now said he would not run as an independent if the Democrats nominate a moderate. - Oh, isn't that nice. Why is Howard Schultz on every television station in this country? Why are you quoting Howard Schultz? Because he's a billionaire. - Yo, I've missed Bernie so much, are you kidding me. That was, oh, isn't that nice, oh ho ho ho. Isn't that nice! Because every other politician would respond to that answer in like a politiciany way. They'd be like, well I believe Howard Schultz entering the race would be irresponsible at this time. Bernie's just like, Howard Schultz can run for president of my ass. (audience laughs and applauds) Bernie Sanders, senator of Vermont and man who knows the ducks in the park by name. (audience laughs) You see, it turns out 30 years ago when Bernie Sanders was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont he hosted a public access TV show, yeah. And a few days ago that TV network released the full archives online, and I'm talking hours and hours of pure Bernie gold. Like, there's so much gold in these archives Bernie's gonna demand it gets redistributed the working class, that's how much gold there is. And when you start watching this footage the first thing that's really apparent is how consistent Bernie has been throughout his life. - We have a crisis situation. We are one of two nations in the industrialized world that does not have a national healthcare system. The wealthiest people in our country are becoming wealthier. To a large degree the tax system in this country is extremely unfair in that it asks working people and elderly people and poor people to pay too much while large corporations and wealthy people do not pay their fair share. - God damn, Bernie Sanders, he's never changed. And I'm not talking about his platform, the dude looked exactly the same back then as he does today. You realize he's 46 years old in that photo. I'm not joking, he's 46 years old, he looks the same. Like if you traveled back in time in a time machine and the first person you met was Bernie Sanders you'd be like, ah, this piece of shit doesn't work. (audience laughs) Bernie'd be like, no my friend, what doesn't work is our healthcare system. (audience laughs) Like, I wonder, has Bernie just looked like this his entire life? Yeah, I bet when he was born the doctor was like, congratulations, Mrs. Sanders, it's a beautiful, healthy old man, well done. (audience laughs and applauds) And then instead of spanking Bernie the doctor just shook his hand, welcome to the world, Mr. Sanders, welcome to the world. (audience laughs) And although it's impressive that Bernie's been consistent in his policies it really says more about America than it says about Bernie when you think about it, right. He's saying the same thing for 30 years because America has had the same problems for 30 years. But here's what makes this old TV show so amazing, right, it wasn't just about Bernie's policies, it was like a full TV show with different segments and by far, by far the best segment of all are the ones where he interacted with kids, all right, like this segment where he talks to some kids at camp about drugs. - Who knows about cocaine, anyone ever seen cocaine? - Yes. - No. - Hold it, one at a time, what about cocaine, good thing, bad thing? What about even smoking cigarettes, who here smokes? Come here, come on, raise your hand. Other than your parents, who smokes. I've seen a lot of kids who are 12 and 11 smoking. - I don't smoke. - All right. - I don't smoke 'cause I'm a little kid, I'm only five years old. (audience laughs and applauds) - Oh man, that's so adorable. I don't smoke because I'm five years old. Like, it's almost like Bernie can't tell the difference between kids and adults. He's like, let's talk finance, you guys diversified? Who's got a 401k, who, who has a 401k? Who talks about cocaine with five year olds? (audience laughs) Like, the way he was asking the question made it seem less like an anti drugs talk and more like he was trying to score some blow. He's just like, you guys know about cocaine? You know where I can find it at a good price? Come on, this is Vermont, let's his the slopes. Come on, come on. (audience laughs) And on the show Bernie didn't just talk to kids about hard drugs. He also called them out on their BS. - Hold it, let me ask you a question, what is your name? - George. - All right, George, do you think it's important that you know how to read well and write? - No. - Oh, you think not? Oh really? I'm trying to argue with these kids, they think they're very smart and that school is not important. - Yeah. - That right? Well I disagree with you. All right, I think you're dumb. (audience laughs and applauds) - Oh man, oh wow. Yo, I think this kid's about to get his ass kicked by Bernie Sanders. (audience laughs and applauds) And there'd be no coming back from that, if Bernie kicked your ass you have to move to a different state. And even then you know there'd be one guy who'd be like, hey, didn't you get your ass beat by that 90 year old? Be like, he was only 46, I swear! But by far, by far, my favorite clip of all that we found is when a little girl asks mayor Bernie to build an amusement park in her neighborhood and all of a sudden he turns it into a town hall. - I was just wondering, my mother had this idea for an indoor outdoor amusement park. - First thing that we have to do though before we can do something like that is to make sure that we own the land. Now that's one of the concerns that we have. At the present moment we don't own a lot of the land downtown, it's owned by the railroad. And one of the things that we're trying to do now is to figure out which land we should buy and how much we should pay for it. So we're working on that but I think your mother's idea is a very good idea. And I congratulate you for giving her all these great ideas. - Okay, well I better get going. (audience laughs and applauds) - Yes! Oh, yes! That little girl is my hero. 'Cause she was asking a fun question and Bernie turned it into like a Ted Talk about zoning laws and you could tell she was totally over it. Oh man, that was so crazy. You know what's also crazy, is that that little girl grew up to be Hillary Clinton. I don't know if it was CNN or if it was the formats of the night but Bernie Sanders in particular, he seemed ready to throw down. - Jake, your question is a republican talking point. - [Jake] What do you say to congressman Delaney? - You're wrong. (audience laughs and applauds) - I've done the math, it doesn't add up. - Maybe you did that and made money off of healthcare but our job is to run a nonprofit healthcare system. - If we're gonna force Americans to make these radical changes they're not gonna go along, and you, throw your hands up. - All right. (audience laughs and applauds) - You don't know that Bernie. - I do know it, I wrote the damn bill. (audience laughs and applauds) - Damn! Bernie was not messing around tonight, huh? Yeah, I thought he was gonna send someone to the hospital and then pay their entire bill, he was, woo. The big drama leading up to tonight was the growing tension between America's socialist sweethearts Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. It started when Bernie's campaign started saying that Warren only attracts rich and well educated voters. And in response Elizabeth Warren hit back and now it is full on beef. - [Reporter] Gloves off, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders trade accusations ahead of the Democrats final debate before voting in Iowa begins. - [Reporter] That non aggression pact between the parties two progressives certainly appears to be over. - [Reporter] The campaigns now duking it out over a private conversation in 2018 when Sanders allegedly told Warren, a woman can't win. Sanders denies the claims, calling the idea that he would say a woman couldn't win ludicrous. - [Reporter] But then Warren contradicted him publicly. I thought a woman could win, she said, he disagreed. - The beef between Bernie and Warren must feel like seeing your parents getting divorced, you know, which is a situation that Bernie is too blunt to handle delicately. Can you imagine him? It'd be like, daddy, is it my fault that you and mommy don't love each other anymore? He's like, well, were happy and then we had you. You do the math. (audience laughs) - One time allies Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, the two senators, their working through some issues. They had this moment after the debate where Senator Warren left Bernie Sanders hanging as he tried to shake her hand. That was followed by a brief but noticeably tense exchange. Tom Steyer there. - Caught in the middle. - [John] Deciding, I'm not gonna get in the middle of all this right now. - Wow.
