  1. Think the woman said that so she doesn't have to talk to a stranger. Iowans know that all Democrats are in this fair this yr.

  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Paulsen

    Now, imagine if Brian Stack Gregory Whytman actually won the whole thing.  What then?  If he chooses Vermin Supreme as a running mate, I know who I'll be voting for.

    Whytman/Supreme 2020: If you must vote for a joke candidate, why not a benign, funny one this time?

  3. BRIAN STACK FUN FACT #5…..

    0.0……his poll number AND….

    the size of his poll (sorry Miriam) 🙁

  4. If Stephen Colbert was elected President of the United States, Brian Stack would be his…

    Chief of Hack 🤨🤨🤨

  5. BRIAN STACK FUN FACT #78….

    The guy in the corn costume is his actual younger brother…Chad Stack

    Their parents refer to Chad as the successful one

  6. If Trump fans were really fans of what they say they are – outsider, successful businessman who will “shake up” the Washington elite – they would be all over Yang. But, alas, they are not. What they really want is to elect to the office of President someone who looks and acts like they do.

  7. My cat, Tyler Forte is running for president in 2020 but no one will take him seriously. Tyler Forte 2020 – Because Even A Cat is Better Than Trump

  8. Did Whytman even mention he was the Deputy Mayor of Waterloo this time or would we have seen known better?

    …Does Waterloo have a Deputy Mayor?

  9. People who say they’re voting for Trump enthusiastically without hesitation makes you wonder what they love about Trump? The only thing he’s been consistent with with racism.

  10. Conservatives watch only conservative news stations, that’s why they think Rump is a great president and the left lie about him. Please don’t think that Rump won’t get in again, it’s certainly not a given.

  11. Yang realized he was being trolled, was nice and polite and still bought the man a corn dog. What a legend. Yang2020

  12. Running for president is a great way to get tax free money as political contributions are exempt from being taxed and you get to keep whatever you raise no matter if you win or not!

  13. well, Gregory, you could put your name in to petition for the 4th Back to the Future movie they might make you president too.

  14. Stack for Prez! Love that he is doing these bits… Conan had some great skits with Brian Stack such as the CEO of Brookstone, the 1920s salesman, and a few other worth hunting for… Keep up the great skits!

  15. Stephen Colbert i love you, but you're being an ass to Andrew Yang, he is a real presidential candidate, also stop using MSNBC talking points when it comes to Tulsi Gabbard. Other than that you're great.

  16. The giant 10-way debate is useless. At this stage they should be having Lincoln-Douglas debates between pairs of minor candidates. Of course very few people will watch, but they may generate some good highlights. Actually should be in pairs, with each candidate picking the topic for one debate.

  17. Still beat hillary and her little girl followers
    Affirmative action = just aint bright enough to compete with white guys, aka lazy, for example
    Barry Obama's real father is Frank Marshall Davis, CPUSA 47544. The Kenya story is a dumb fairy tale. Why does Barry look just like Frank's other 1/2 white kids, and why do they all look like Frank?

  18. How any female or man that has a female in his life that he cares about could vote for Trump is mind blowing. He is a confessed sexual assaulter, pedophile peeper (watching the teenagers changing for the pagent) and accused rapist. Have a little dignity and vote for someone who doesn't prey on females.

  19. That's got to be kind of awkward, a fair where a bunch of presidential candidates run around. What do they say when they run into each other?

  20. In honestly, I don't know why people actually upset that Stephen is choose to show case Andrew Yang on his show; as if Yang being setup or something. In honestly, I watch the entire full interview I actually think is fine, rather Yang reaction to the whole thing make me a little disappointing. I'm sorry being Asian is not an excuse for vote for another Asian. I'm sorry I don't enforce my bias because that would be racist.
    Let me make one thing clear, and I hope that everyone please understand. These shows, the late show, daily show, and even the new media these day, are all "entertainment." In other words, they are all try to entertain us as the consumer of such shows. Of course, all the interviewers are fully aware, or partially inform, what going on. I actually feel bad for the pundits who are on the field. Their faces are out there and become target of those oppose their ideals, which require great courage. Now let me make it clear for why at this point, Yang do not earn my vote; keep in mind my 1 vote mean nothing. I don't want to influence your vote, nor I want to change your opinion this in fact just my own.
    One, Yang don't have the experiences to fully understand the needs of American people, and yes, I referred to America at the whole, not the Asian community; which frankly I don't really care enough. We have so much issue in politic, that cannot be solve with just saying I give cash to everyone; that is bribery or undue influence. This bring me to second point, Freedom Dividend, I don't like the ideal of hand out cash, not to corporate, not to individual or to any particular group. As an accountant, CPA and a Master title holders, the ideal of given cash to individual is the laziest way to solve any situation. I would rather instead of using that $1000 per individual to paid off national debt and student debt, fix the school system and health care system, eliminate the dark money in government, get business out of Washington, revise the finance economy and bad habit in our culture, cut national and weapon spending, make sure that veteran, senior and the unfortunate are well take care of. There are too many things that 340 billion can do, why waste it on a new Ipad or Iphone. Freedom Dividend is nothing more than undue influence to be popular and nothing more. You can't fix our current system, which are the American people, with just money. It is require time, effort, patient and a lot and lot of love.
    Third and this one completely personal, one thing is clear from the full interview, Andrew Yang doesn't have a sense of humor. I'm sorry, he, too Asian. I want my president have at least a sense that there will be hope for tomorrow. Trump is already a pile of let down and sink hole. I don't think that Andrew Yang is the President that American is need right now, maybe after Bernie and Elizabeth Warren fix some of the piles of craps that Trump will left behind after his presidency, then maybe Yang can step in to become the next president.
    In conclusion, let put aside the prospect of maybe an Asian guy can become president, which itself is not a bad deal. I would rather vote for Bernie and Elizabeth than Yang. Unless that Yang can really turn around in some of his view, then my mind can be change. But as I was very clear, his ideal and character are not resonate with me. Sorry Yang Gang.

    PS: Thank for reading, but please don't ask question. I write this a diary for my thought and nothing more. Thanks,

  21. I would vote for Whytmen over Trump any day! It always amazes me when women say they will vote for Trump. Why? Why vote against your own interests? What is going on with these women. I don’t get it? It breaks my heart.

  22. 3:01 I had this interaction on tumblr yesterday after looking at a guy's blog and I wrote "You're a Trump supporter, aren't you?" and he wrote back that he is but that Trump wasn't as good as we deserve. And I wrote back "Sorry I asked." and he wrote back "Hmm?" and I finally wrote back "I'm just going to leave."

    Why talk to these people?

    Also it's a sad commentary that this guy can just go around saying he's a candidate and people believe it, but I probably would have fallen for it to. Too many damn people wanting to be President and in a more sane and rational fact based world every one of them would be more qualified than Donald Trump. Well maybe not that one lady, Marianne Williamson. She needs to return to the Mothership.

    Only in My Little Pony can the world be saved by the power of love and friendship.

  23. Okay but are you telling me these other legit candidates didn't know this guy was fake? That should be a disqualifier right there! CULL THE HERD!

    Gov. Steve Bullock, Julián Castro, and Andrew Yang. If they didn't realize this guy was NOT an opponent, than that should be three that should drop out immediately!

  24. trump only has christian followers. I think christianity is a disease on this planet. the real god put that virus called christianity to kill everything and reset the world. terrible. We all can c wherever christianity is, there is chaos and unfairness.
