The first part of the Democratic debate took place on Wednesday night and consisted of: Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, former Rep. John Delaney, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Rep. Tim Ryan, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, Sen Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Cory Booker, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
There were numerous aspects of the debate and moments throughout the night that were head scratchers.
NBC allowing discredited conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow to ask questions at the #DemDebate is peak NBC— Dan Bongino (@dbongino) June 27, 2019
It seemed like the Democratic candidates were trying so hard to resonate with various demographics that tried to out-diversify the other.
BETO: I speak Spanish.— Jason Howerton (@jason_howerton) June 27, 2019
BOOKER: I can't believe you did my thing before me.
DE BLASIO: I have a black son.
BOOKER: I'm actually black tho, Bill.
KLOBUCHAR: ...Um, I have an uncle with a deer stand?
WARREN: *don't say it, don't say it*
Favorite moments of the night:— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) June 27, 2019
-Klobuchar bragging about her Uncle Dick
-Beto pretending to be Spanish
-Castro claiming that dudes can get pregnant
-NBC forgetting how microphones work
-Bald guy getting yelled at every time he tried to speak
And, basically, everything should be free and Warren's policy positions lead the night.

?Sen. Warren, you go first.
?FREE THINGS GOOD!
?ABORTION GOOD! CLIMATE CHANGE BAD!
?A question for you, Sen. Warren.
?I'll let Sen. Warren respond.
?Yo no creo en fronteras.
?"I have a black son."
But the strangest moment goes to Julian Castro, who defended a transgender woman's right to have an abortion.
I dont know about you guys, but I thought the bravest, most courageous moment of the #DemDebate was when Julian Castro defended a transgender woman's right to have an abortion.— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) June 27, 2019
Hold on, folks. This is about to be a bumpy ride.
