Slow Jam the News with Senator Bernie Sanders


-The fifth Democratic debate
was last week, and all the candidates
came out swinging. You know I was gonna make
a joke about this, but I don’t think
it needs a joke. I think it needs to be
slow-jammed. You know what
I’m talking about, Tariq? -Yeah, Jimmy. I think you’re saying you’d like
to slow-jam this news. -That’s right — I want to
slow-jam the news, and I’m not the only one. [ Cheers and applause ] -Thank you. Thank you. [ Crowd chants “Bernie!” ] Thank you. Hello.
I’m Senator Bernie Sanders. And I, too, would like to
slow-jam this news. -Hit me five times!
♪♪ [ Slow R&B music playing ] -During last week’s debate,
I went toe-to-toe with my fellow Democrats
on the issues that matter most. We need to defeat Trump,
the most dangerous president in American history. [ Cheers and applause ] But we need to do more. We can no longer tolerate
three people owning more wealth than
the bottom half of America. I have the experience to fight
for that bottom half and to create an economy that
works for all of us, not just those on top. [ Cheers and applause ] -Oh, yeah. Bernie Sanders is looking out
for your bottom half. He knows it’s been
neglected for too long. Now he wants to pay it some
extra-special attention. He’s sick and tired of having
just a few people on top. That’s why Bernie’s here to
spread the love. -♪ Wanna spread
a little bit of love, y’all ♪ ♪ 50 years of service,
giving people the power ♪ ♪ He’s heard it all, except
the words “please talk louder” ♪ -Now, tell me, “Woke Doc Brown,”
lately, this country’s been experimenting with
all the wrong positions. So what’s your plan to bring us
back to the future? -Well, let’s start here. We need to enact
Medicare for all. [ Cheers and applause ] We need to tackle the dangerous
threat of climate change. [ Cheers and applause ] And we need to get
Big Money out of politics. [ Cheers and applause ] I don’t have a super PAC. Instead, I have
a grassroots campaign with more individual
contributions than any candidate in American history. [ Cheers and applause ] I am proud of the donations
we receive, no matter how small. -Mm-mm-mm! You got to listen to my
bed-headed brougham. He might not have a super PAC, but he’s packin’
something super. He’s all about
taking a firm stance against corporations to give
the people what they desire. -I know you’re joking,
but it actually is quite sexy. [ Cheers and applause ] -Man, just the way you said that
has got me feelin’ the “Bern.” And thanks to Medicare for all, I can get it
checked out by my doctor, ’cause this hunka-hunka
Bernie love — well, he wants to take care
of all of our bodies. -♪ Bernie loves
your body, baby ♪ ♪ He’ll bring Medicare
to all consumers ♪ ♪ And if you can’t dig that,
then, okay, Boomer ♪ -Now, Senator, I was hoping
you could take a minute and talk Bernie to me. We all know you’ve got
a huge heart. [ Music stops ]
-No, no. It’s a normal-sized heart. It’s a completely normal,
completely fine heart. [ Cheers and applause ] But continue.
[ Music continues ] -Well, now that you bring it up,
what do you say to people who think “The Sandman” is
too…mature to be president? -Well, to those people, I’d say
that I’m feeling strong, energetic,
and more ready than ever to fight for
the American people. -Hold up.
[ Music stops ] So what you’re saying is… ♪ I do my hair toss,
check my nails ♪ ♪ Bernie, how you feelin’? ♪ ♪ Hair toss,
check my nails ♪ ♪ Bernie, how you feelin’? ♪ -Feelin’ good as hell. [ Cheers and applause ] [ Slow R&B music playing ] -Alright.
One last question before we wham, bam, thank you, Sand,
this interview. I made a lot of jokes
about you in the past and I even do
a Bernie impression that some say is pretty good. But I was thinking,
now that you’re here, do you want to do
a Jimmy impression? -Ha ha! -Are you gonna do
an impression of me? -Jimmy, that was
my impression of you. -♪ Jimmy’s got
a third-degree burn ♪ -We must choose a leader
who fights for what’s fair. -Who cares more about
the people and less about hair. -♪ Cares less about hair ♪ ♪ Listen ♪ ♪ Our battle’s uphill ♪ ♪ We cannot stand still ♪ ♪ We’ll write our new page like
we wrote the damn bill ♪ ♪ It starts with a Bern,
then a fire breaks loose ♪ -And that is how
we slow-jam the news. -Oh, yeah! -Give it up for
Senator Bernie Sanders!

  1. I started giving money to Bernie when he ran for Mayor of Burlington VT in 1981. He was honest, decent, and straightforward back then, and he is now. He marched on Washington to support MLK in 1963. He was advocating for health care for all in 1981. He takes no corporate money. He is unsought and unbossed, as Shirley Chisholm used to say. He is or protecting senior, creating jobs, and affordable housing that is truly within everyone's reach. The billionaires tell us all to "go without", just like that U2 song. Well how's this- let THEM go without for a change. Let THEM pay their fair share of taxes, the way they did during FDR's administration, before Reagan changed the tax code. Let THEM give up some of their multiple homes, private jets, multiple cars their endless luxury purchases, and the money they spend on every indulgence. Rich people will fly their favorite brand of cupcake in while other people starve. Let's all have a decent life and create a world where no one aspires to be a billionaire, because this is as sick a hoarding disorder as the folks who live in houses where you have to dig a trench through the stuff piled up in their living room.

  2. Fallon is a drunk. What was that movie he was in with Queen Latifa? Oh, yeah, it was a flop because Fallon was in it. How did this bore get popular? Look at his old SNL skits. He's not funny in any of them. yawn…

  3. Brilliantly done Bernie and Jimme and smooth black singerπŸ₯°πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏼🧨

  4. I’ve been waiting for someone like this, since 1980. Thirty years of b.s. is way too much to handle (not to mention, whatever came before).

  5. I wish, I dream, but unless we make A LOT OF noise, I'm afraid Dems won't ever nominate him. They rather have trump. Both parties are under big money.

  6. GEEEEEEEEEEE! I wonder why slow jam with Bernie got TONS of positive youtube comments but NOT Kamala or 'Mayor Pete'? Wait…NO I DON'T! O_O

  7. Socialism promises a β€œfree lunch”, but someone is going to have to pay for it until their money runs out. Then everyone starves. Check your history books. Sanders is selling someone else’s money. Old failed trick.

  8. Besides The Roots, Prince's band N-P-G (New Power Generation) has also been feeling the Bern. Add his other endorsements from Ariana, Miley, Cardi B, Lizzo (whose new song Bernie just sang to), Brandi Carlisle, Jason Mraz, Norah Jones, etc. I'm forgetting a few others but tell me WHY with all this talent, we don't have a Sandchella or Berning Man festival?! F–k IHeartRadio, give me IHeartTio!!

  9. Mr. Fallon, endorse Mr. Sanders ASAP!!!! Do it for your kids. Do it for all of us. It could push our fight over the top. Whether it would be an establishment Dem ignoring quite critical issues, or Trump or Pence (oh good Lord please no), the alternative is quite dangerous!

  10. Register to vote! Make sure your friends and relatives are registered. Unless they are Biden or trump supporters maybe let them forget

  11. They will never put this on the new, look how many ppl love this man. Lol this is why I don’t blv in these fake polls. Everywhere this man goes there are thousands and thousands of people behind him, but yet he’s not the leader in the polls look what a joke. I don’t see ppl going crazy for handys Biden. The news down plays Bernie to much.

  12. Trump 2020! Keep America Great! Legal United States citizens of all ethnicities for Trump! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  13. How come every people in this earth love this man, and the only people letting down him is his own people, fellow Americans let's not blow up this time #Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern

  14. Oh how I love me some Bernie!!! Got switched to Medicare Nov. 1 and still today nothing has been covered and noone seems to know what is going on when I look for the answers! In the meantime I am paying for everything out of my own pocket until I find someone who can help me…what a nightmare! My choices are prescriptions or eating until then! How very terrible!

  15. Blah blah blah blah all politicians are the same Republican or Democrat it's all hot air don't let this guy for you he is this the same as trump cept a Democrat

  16. Just watched a Slow Jam with Pete. All that little prick (mayor) talks about is himself and his record and his accomplishment and NOT a word about his policy and why he even runs except to beat Trump. Bernie starts with what he believe in and what he is going to do.
    #UsNotMe Bernie is the only electable and serious candidate in this race.
