    A couple of people in the race are not being influenced by big money. Ben
    Carson, Donald Trump (who is the big money lol), and Bernie Sanders.
    Interesting, they are also the ones being hit the hardest by the media.

    Funny how only Republicans accept big money. I didn’t realize literally no
    Democratic candidate needed big donors. Way to stay neutral Seth!

    Sheldon Adelson, the slim ball casino “nuke Iran” billionaire extremist
    decided to back Rubio. If Rubio wins you don’t think he’ll be indebted to
    Adelson’s extreme demands for more middle east wars? Democracy isn’t
    supposed to allow for one citizen to wield that much political will over
    the other fellow citizens. “Citizens United” has to go up there as one of
    the most flawed rulings in SCOTUS history.

    Okay, so we’re going to completely ignore all the money democrats take too.
    I lost a lot of respect for Seth here. I mean c’mon, the democrats wouldn’t
    even be players in politics if they didn’t take money and make promises to
    rich donors. If you only point out campaign finance issues when they apply
    to Republicans, you’re far from unbiased and actually a part of the
    problem. It’s not a party problem, it’s a government problem.

    And yet again, this fucko completely ignores how much Hilary gets from big
    donors, because it’s only funny to make fun of republicans. Seth Meyers, we
    get it, you’re a liberal. You don’t have to keep trying so hard to convince
    us.
