Wow. We actually wanted another hour! Bloomberg was a prime target tonight because he entered the race late and essentially bought his way onstage. He was confronted about his controversial stop-and-frisk program in New York City, as well as his past sexist comments. A few of the most entertaining duels were: Warren vs. Bloomberg, Bernie vs. Bloomberg, and Amy vs. Pete. 

The Nevada Caucus is this Saturday.

Van Jones on Bloomberg: "His dream scenario turned into a nightmare."

But Jones said it may not matter because...

"Every ad for the rest of your life is going to be Bloomberg."

Interesting. Biden and Sanders had a chat after the debate. MSNBC is looking for audio, just like what came out after the CNN debate between Sanders and Warren.

Trump campaign statement on the debate: "The Democrat Party is in the midst of a full-scale meltdown. Americans are watching the party of JFK be torn apart by anti-job socialists and anti-worker globalists who want to control every aspect of Americans’ lives. This train wreck is nothing compared to what they would do to our country. None of these candidates will be able to go toe to toe with President Trump in November."

Van Jones: This was a disaster for Bloomberg.

Andrew Yang, now a CNN commentator, analyzes tonight's debate. Bloomberg "was clearly instructed to keep his cool, but it made him seem lethargic and uninterested."

Small picture: Warren won the debate.

Big picture: Bernie has to be thrilled as the frontrunner. And holy hell, Bloomberg got gutted early on.

You mean the craziest people in the room aren't on the debate stage?

Klobuchar: We have a president who doesn't have a heart.

Klobuchar to Pete: I wish everyone was as perfect as you, Pete. But let me tell you what it is like to be in the arena.

How many times in a debate do they say Trump's name?

BIDEN: And Mitch McConnell, I've been the object of his affection and the president's affection the way he's gone after me, this new Republican Party after me, after my son, after my family. I don't need to be told I'm a friend to Mitch McConnell's. He's been the biggest pain in my neck in a long, long time.
