God bless this beautiful country…!!! Reply FunkyDoolittle says: February 6, 2019 at 2:02 pm Can definitely tell he worked for Obama – he talks almost the same – same gestures and articulations.

No chance in hell I'll be voting for corporatist neoliberal hacks like Castro, Booker, Harris, or Gillibrand. If we dont elect a REAL Progressive like Bernie, Tulsi Gabbard, or Liz Warren, then don't act shocked when Trump gets re-elected.

Reply A P says: February 6, 2019 at 5:02 pm 75% of America loved Trump’s state of the union address , the ones that didn’t are communist , radicals and traitors like jimmy kimmel Reply Joseph Lee says: February 6, 2019 at 5:17 pm This guy has zero charisma. unfortunately. He has no chance of winning office. Reply clericstorm2009 says: February 6, 2019 at 5:24 pm That last answer that he doesnt want to be VP is concerning, isnt the whole point to serve the country in whatever is the highest office you can attain? Reply Gabester46 says: February 6, 2019 at 5:44 pm This guy is going to get 1% at the MOST.

Why dont you bring more porn stars on. lol… Reply shimmy 1973 Schermerhorn says: February 6, 2019 at 6:11 pm All the Democrats running for President are only in the race for a cabinet position for a Democratic President if elected. Nice gesture but none are qualified enough for the top job. Amounts only for name recognition. Something for the resume. Wish them luck. Reply Jonas Stoerfeuer says: February 6, 2019 at 6:17 pm At first, I did not like Julian Castro.He seemed like a centrist, avoiding making absolute statements like Obama did or Kamala does now.But – in contrast to Kamala – he fully supports medicare for all. He talks about his actual policy ideas.I'm interested how he will be in the debates. Reply David Boggs says: February 6, 2019 at 6:22 pm We need an Asian president, then we'll win. Reply David Boggs says: February 6, 2019 at 6:23 pm Yeah, the president of our country should be focusing on the health, and well being of people who came in here illigally, and not on the actual citizens. Reply Sam Goldstein says: February 6, 2019 at 6:28 pm Glad to hear he's pro medicare-for-all. Need to hear more of his policies though. Unfortunately, his launch video had 0 policy, strategy, or even really stances on anything. So he's still an enigma. Does he support a $15 minimum wage? Does he support the green new deal? Does he believe in criminal justice reform? Does he support pulling troops out of American interventions? Does he back the plans coming forward to increase taxes on the rich? This primary will be a very clear case of corporate Dems vs. progressive Dems. We're all wondering where he'll fall. Obviously it wasn't Jimmy's responsibility to ask him these things. It's on Castro to tell people what the hell he stands for. He can't just say "let's all just get along" and win the election. That's how Hilary lost. Reply David Boggs says: February 6, 2019 at 6:28 pm This small little man president? lol.He looks like an off brand piiwii huerman Reply Mohamed Hashi says: February 6, 2019 at 6:41 pm Guys, its a talk show, don't expect policies or agendas. They don't wanna bore the viewers. Reply RolandMeisler says: February 6, 2019 at 6:50 pm Yeah this guy not winning Reply J Francisker says: February 6, 2019 at 6:55 pm Let Em HAVE IT!!!🍅🤣🍺 Reply johnny phu says: February 6, 2019 at 7:26 pm I agree with you sir health care for all is great and good for economic too 👍💗 Reply TheInstantgib says: February 6, 2019 at 7:58 pm Doesn't believe profit should drive the medicare…well then. You get people to work and drive a successful venture no matter what it is…at a loss…good luck with that. Reply THELETTERPRODUCTION says: February 6, 2019 at 8:14 pm Looks like he’s left handed too 😂 Reply major bu2 says: February 6, 2019 at 8:49 pm Con artist in the making! Reply Justin l says: February 6, 2019 at 8:55 pm Wonder what the difference in cost the wall would be compared to free Medicare for all. Reply Joe Janis says: February 6, 2019 at 8:58 pm Two queers Reply KootFloris says: February 6, 2019 at 9:14 pm Modular insurance sucks. It's like betting what disease you may get, so you are covered for it. Reply MJ SM says: February 6, 2019 at 9:25 pm President Julian Castro!! Reply Uncle Ben Humor says: February 6, 2019 at 9:55 pm Go Julian. Reply Kasey G says: February 6, 2019 at 10:49 pm Being from San Antonio and having him as a mayor..he did a lot of good for our city! The city loved him!! He was a shining light to a lot of people. A progressive style which we need!! He has my vote and very excited to see how far he gets!!! Reply Shanpainpahpy says: February 6, 2019 at 10:49 pm get trump on the show so he can prove you wrong Reply Sean Buechele says: February 6, 2019 at 11:29 pm Wow Medicare for all who is going to pay for that God?? Reply jennlee21 says: February 7, 2019 at 12:06 am Healthcare for everyone sounds good, but, no, it is not that simple. He doesn't understand where and who this money is going to for "healthcare". Reply J MacDonald says: February 7, 2019 at 12:16 am I am impressed with Julian Castro .. if he isn't POTUS, I hope he is in the Democratic Cabinet! I think Julian would be an integral addition to the American government. I truly like him. 🇺🇸🇺🇸 Reply Maddie says: February 7, 2019 at 12:19 am He is fine Reply Cue 1st Amend says: February 7, 2019 at 12:35 am Have all the separated migrant children been reunited with their parents yet as ordered by a Federal judge?

LET'S NOT FORGET THE UNBELIEVABLE BILLIONS THAT WERE LOST DURING THE GOVT. SHUT DOWN…THAT COULD HAVE HELPED MILLIONS OF OUR COUNTRY'S STUDENTS AND NEEDY!!??

Reply Greg Johnson says: February 7, 2019 at 1:37 am That moron stands ZERO CHANCE…..he makes me laugh…HARD Reply James Vincent Franco says: February 7, 2019 at 2:06 am We will be putting Pence in office. I expect Trump to be gone 1 way or another, everything is on that table. But no party can Survive with this many people running (the only conclusion to me is that everyone thinks if Trump can Do it Anyone can, including me, which is absolutely not true Trump ia cheater, his party are cheaters, they never did nor ever will play fair Reply Don Guello says: February 7, 2019 at 2:08 am So people are saying on the thread… Julian doesn’t have charisma Julian is Latin He’s too nice He’s too young. Well let me say if pick him over Trump any day get over your prejudices people…. Julian Castro Stanford University, Harvard Law son of immigrants. He’s the American Dream embodied. Trump Fordham and Wharton U along w many bankruptcies…. Reply James Vincent Franco says: February 7, 2019 at 2:12 am They will ( the polls are still at 43%, noone has flipped and for some psychotic reason, the democrats have lost people.Every extra person Running gives Trump and his Super Rich Fans, and his rabid dog fans ammunition to distort, Alter or just use against each peron). They will flood media with lies that contain just enough Truth, to trick Independents Reply Christian Estrada says: February 7, 2019 at 2:23 am Julian Castro coming through with the bars “instead of putting billions of dollar towards a wall why not put money towards Medicare for all” Reply Wet Waters says: February 7, 2019 at 2:57 am Trump is a top four president no debate. Reagan, Washington, Lincoln, and Trump. Reply Luis Escobar says: February 7, 2019 at 3:12 am When I lived in San Antonio he was a great mayor to that city. You could feel it I worked downtown and he was highly spoken about amongst the San Antonian's. I moved there because of hurrican Katrina I miss that city he ran a tight ship and did not ever hear about any issue's with him. He took pride in his reputation because not once did I ever hear anything bad from him. I think he would be a great candidate for running of the President. Reply VeraIsTheTruth says: February 7, 2019 at 3:30 am I like him! Reply Thrustin Von Helmut says: February 7, 2019 at 3:45 am Another PONI (Progressive Outside; Neoliberal Inside) in the Presidential race. Castro is not progressive and is bought and paid for by the same folks who fund the Democratic party leaders. He is a fraud. Reply EricMoranFilms says: February 7, 2019 at 4:01 am I like this guy, that being said he doesn’t seem like he’d generate any excitement. Reply Tuck Frump says: February 7, 2019 at 5:24 am The Trumpturds have been stimulated! Reply Jack Valor says: February 7, 2019 at 5:45 am Dont think Julián Castro will even crack the primary…My next president is Kamala Harris !!! Reply maremacd says: February 7, 2019 at 6:55 am Why would supplemental or private healthcare be prohibited if we had basic healthcare for all? I don’t understand that at all. We have free, public education but still allow people to homeschool or send their kids to private school. What is the argument for such a limitation? Reply Mandy Mariposa says: February 7, 2019 at 7:22 am Biden – Castro 2020!!!! Reply rynov34 says: February 7, 2019 at 7:28 am He over simplifies things that makes the crowd cheer and gets him on TV, Trump is a better president than people think Reply H Hernandez says: February 7, 2019 at 7:49 am He seems like a great guy but that hairline?? Idk can we trust this guy? Reply Hadley Pleasanton says: February 7, 2019 at 10:29 am Oh, look. It's Charlie Chan's number one son. Castro is Hispanic like Liz Warren is Indian. Reply Denny Gallagher says: February 7, 2019 at 1:32 pm Why is he appearing with Jimmy Kimmel, knowing that Jimmy Kimmel appeared in blackface? He called for the resignation of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam for appearing in blackface. Maybe if Northam had a tv show where Castro could promote his presidential ambitions he would be more supportive of him. Hypocrisy? Reply blue4me43 says: February 7, 2019 at 4:19 pm Traitor Evil mentally sick old Trump should not be on this job. Shame on the GOP's for giving this Traitor Trump the job. Trump and the GOP's will destroy our Nation. Kick them out in 2020. Reply Adam Santiago says: February 7, 2019 at 5:03 pm Corrupt America would never let that happen not unless that Latin candidate shared the same Republican conservative views as most of the main government does. This coming from a straight up brown Guatemalan chapin, we will never see a Latin president in our time, social and racial status and 1000 more reasons would never allow it, sad truth is no one wants to see a latino in office and it sucks. Aside from having had our first Black President the rest have been White now there is nothing wrong with that but I truly believe corporate America and the 1% are set out on keeping the President White. Maybe I'm wrong and we do get a Latin president, I hope so I'd be gladly proven wrong but I dont think we will ever see a Latino President in our time.

Reply peccatoribus64 says: May 23, 2019 at 7:23 pm If this guy ever hits the Presidency which I doubt but let's he does in his fantasy or hypothetically speaking. That means the cooks are gonna be frying frijoles and carne azada all day at La Casa Blanca. Also he's going to let lunch trucks to park along 1600 Philadelphia ave. to served tacos all day long to remind him he's in Mexico. Also when he receives heads of States, he'll do it with Mariachis & margaritas. Yeeeeeehaaaaaaa. And everybody will be singing: Con tus huaraches y sombrero, ya no tengo mas dinero!! Con tus huaraches y sombreroooooooooo!! Reply Martin Ramires says: June 30, 2019 at 3:14 pm Every one count's . That would be a good campain logo… Reply V. V says: July 2, 2019 at 11:35 pm Someone must tell Castro he will never be President, BECAUSE HE LOOKS & FEELS SOO DAMN SMUG RIGHT NOW. The resulting cloud of SMUG building-up around him risks raising global temps Reply chicagoman 1 says: July 3, 2019 at 11:25 pm Under Castro at HUD, he did noting.
