Description

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, a 44-year-old former businessman and philanthropist, has garnered a devoted fanbase (dubbed the “Yang Gang”) for his unique raft of progressive and technocratic reform proposals. His signature policy, the “freedom dividend”, would see every American receive $1000 every month, no strings attached. Yang has garnered enough support to secure a spot on the Democratic debate stage later this month, in spite of his total lack of political or government experience. On this week’s Deconstructed, Mehdi Hasan sits down with the candidate to talk about his platform, his qualifications, and why he seems to have attracted online interest from the alt-right.

I like Mehdi. but Biden is dropping like a rock. His son Hunter is deep into "investments" with hostile countries

sigh. honestly I'm not terribly happy with any of the Democratic candidates. I'm glad that Hasan pressed Yang.

I shared this podcast with a group of friends of mine. They all said the same thing. Hasan is hypercritical, arrogant, and interrupts constantly and is one of the worst journalists of all time.

That was a great interview Andrew Yang’s. Really useful to see how he responds under pressure.
