Wow no Ashlee. How dumb. She speaks with great perception. Seen her on TYT and admired her. No idea she was trans. Apologies. Her experience could speak so effectively for trans people, I can’t understand why she wasn’t there. I don’t know if I should care about her sexuality which is not of importance to me as I see her as an individual. But in ignoring her sexuality am I failing to give it value? These are issues which I know she could answer to. The prejudice and ill treatment of trans people is something that bewilders and confuses me.… Read more »

Trump CLAIMS to the public he is fighting to support trans people, he is DENYING them equal rights through the courts. Donald Trump lies for a living.

I enjoy watching Cenk and John go along with this bullshit. Let's keep it real – shit like this does bring in votes at the moment, crazy ones, but votes nonetheless.

Even as a Trans person, watching the debate clips makes me feel uncomfortable. I'm aware that I'm white and have had passing privilege, so that affords me the privilege of not having to think about the far more extreme discrimination a trans person of color faces. I'm aware trans people of color need more representation. I used to attend my city's Day of Remembrance every year and listen to the names being read as the bell was rung. There are obviously problems that disproportionately affect trans POC. I also feel that there should be at least an equal amount of… Read more »

i love hearing marie preston. i really enjoyed her perspective. i love how even john is quiet listening and learning. i do not see ellen as the face and represents me as part of the LBGT community, even although she's gay she is still privileged and more privileged than oppressed. race is higher than sexuality. you can see their race over more than their sexuality.

Will you be ready when Jesus Christ returns? If not confess your sins and ask Jesus to come to you. Praise the Most High for his son acting as a sacrificial lamb, so that your sins can be forgiven (KJV Romans 5:6-11). Confess your sins to the Most High (KJV1 John 1:9) and Repent (KJV Acts 3:19) now while you have time before it's too late, Many people in this world will not see tomorrow (KJV Proverbs 27:1). To repent means you will not do any of the sins you've done in the past. You will be a renewed person.… Read more »

Reminder that TYT is pretending to care about Islam and the lgbtq community simultaneously. Double standards are cenks only standards. It's almost as if TYT is a part of the establishment manifesto to virtue signal for votes.

What a brat. He didn’t get his way so he sent twitter off on the program and ultimately embarrassed the black trans community. YOU DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO ASK QUESTIONS

Give Shapiro some warm milk and send him to bed! I wonder what his mom and dad think he's doing locked in is room all day? I'm sure they don't think it's healthy as they get him some stronger prescription glasses.

Funny the trans woman Ashlee Marie, on the TYT panel is a huge Warren supporter when Warren skated the question by Chris Cuomo “should attacks against trans people be considered a hate crime?” I guess even some progressives will forgive her flip flopping because of the fear of Bernie. Hey she had her cardboard cut out at dragcon. Please, she is not a LGBTQ alley, she is a former republican and dishonest in her plans! Ashlee’s and TYT should criticism should be on Warren too! Warren doesn’t get my vote! I support Bernie.

27:27 Here an undisclosed (apparently/ at least not adequately disclosed) Warren surrogate (Ashlee Marie Preston) is hyping a "viral moment" that came from a "random" questioner, who apparently has conflicts of interest. What is going on?

What she said was true black trans are being killed in a high rate.again what does their lifestyle have to do with straight ppl I don't understand..they need to worry about the undercover bottus in the straights community. Straights are not God and executioner worry about your own backyard.half of you can't even take care of your kids,half not married,half got multiple baby mom's and pops, half are racist, half are fake hypocrital Christians, Pentecostal, Catholic are the worst they touching and raping your children and you worry about trans ppl.

In actual new Donald Trump has reached a trade agreement with China on phase one which includes agricultural products. This news is going to create a surge in the markets tomorrow. TYT will never report good news for the economy or the American people. TYT and the socialist left are hoping for a recession and the decline of the American economy.

That was a Kanye' West move. Being respectful would have still allowed the Transgender a chance to express themselves. That drama was not necessary.

To those who support trans rights, quick question- Do you support those who are trans racial as well? Legitimate question without any animus, just want to know how you feel.

I really tried to understand but all I heard was minute compartmentalization of people into smaller and smaller groups and lots of them against us talk. No one can do anything right even the host who tried to include the person who was upset.
