The Democratic Party’s leading presidential candidates sparred over Iraq, gender equality and Medicare for All in the final debate showdown before primary voting begins. Here's how those on social media reacted to the event.
Let's get our priorities straight. Moderators dismissing talk of climate change as secondary to the issue of trade. Let's get real! There will be no trade or economy when the planet is on fire. It's time we place the Green New Deal front and center on trade. #DemocraticDebate— Nina Turner (@ninaturner) January 15, 2020
This is insane. Moderator asks Bernie TWICE whether he told Warren a woman can't win the presidency. Immediately after he says no, she turns to Warren to ask what she thought when Bernie said that to her. #demdebate Doesn't seem like moderators care what he has to say.— Ana Kasparian (@AnaKasparian) January 15, 2020

While this #DemDebate is happening, there are STILL children in US custody. There have been claims of neglect, abuse, and assault. According to the latest data, there still 4,300 minors in its care. Children spend an average of 69 days in ORR custody. I’d like a question on this.— Tiffany Cross (@TiffanyDCross) January 15, 2020
Thanks @amyklobuchar for reminding us that the biggest reason we can’t get drug pricing reforms done is because there are two pharma lobbyists for every one Member of Congress.— Katie Hill (@KatieHill4CA) January 15, 2020
That’s why whoever the nominee is should make passing #HR1 their first priority. #demdebate
