Today’s show is so jam packed it’s almost an hour long! The popular debate which aired Thursday June 26th on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo is the focus of this blog and podcast.

between Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton.
It’s important to note that 15.3 million did not include streaming services or live viewings on YouTube, Facebook and other progressive podcasts and online series that normally skew close to the democratic base.
Surprisingly, the commander in chief remained relatively quiet on twitter during the whole thing. I wonder why….
