      We should do all hiring by race. Tammy has the right idea!

    2. Stephen Norako

      I disagree with the senator’s argument. In fact, I don’t think she has a leg to stand on,

    3. Chris Vance

      I remember when Colbert used to be funny, and actually reported on important things. Funny how he instantly became a corrupt liar once he went to a major network. Go figure

      1. Gabriel

        @Chris Vance So if you don't watch much of his stuff, how can you claim that the majority is propaganda? That's just bad statistics. And again, then why are you here? 😂

      2. Chris Vance

        @Gabriel don't usually watch his 'bits' anymore. But everything I've seen lately is propaganda. Everyone throws in a golden nugget from time to time. But the majority of his material is straight up propaganda yes.

      3. Gabriel

        @Chris Vance I'm not a democrat, and I can still find it funny. I typically look up more details on any topic I'm more interested in. Was his bit on the ship stuck in the Suez just propaganda to you? Clearly when interviewing a Democratic senator they will go through talking points just like a Republican would. If you don't enjoy it, you can move on instead of wasting time spreading hate 😂

      4. Chris Vance

        @Gabriel Sure, but I fail to see your point. As a satirical new show he didn't have the democratic party's long arm all the way up his ass controlling his mouth as he spews verbal diarrhea.

      5. Gabriel

        Did you not realize that the Colbert Report was a satirical news show?

    4. Ke Aka

      She needs to face someone with un biased journalistic interviewing skills, than two bit late night show host.

    5. Lao Tzu

      What's strange and hard to fathom is Tammy Duckworth and Kamala Harris creating these phantom white racists yet they're married to white men.

    6. Colby P

      The left is willing to turn their own children into human garbage... what do you think they will do to us? They are evil. Their day is coming.

    7. Steve Hardee

      Hiring people based on race just sounds racist

    8. Bears With Glasses

      If you're a parent- don't take the wrong message away here. Teaching one child isn't easy; imagine teaching 30-40 at one time with no funding, no supplies, and terrible guidance while being actively thwarted by an incompetent administration above you. Give teachers more respect; when they tell you that your child is disruptive and has problematic behavior, listen and address the issue with your child. Don't blame the teacher. Also, acknowledge just how hard it is, and fight for their wages + benefits to be increased.

    9. Vladimir Tserademowitz

      What a complete flaccid let down!

      Hire the best for the job. Gawd this is racist

    13. Sherri Michaletz

      HOW ABOUT HIRING BASED ON QUALIFICATIONS and not BROWN SKIN. Pathetic and Barbaric Banana Republic tactics.

    14. NotA RussianBot

      So racist.

    15. Lynn Snow

      Democrats called the riots in Washington an armed insurrection even though there were no arms there. However, let a group of BLM members with what Democrats call an assault rifle at the state capital of Georgia and you don’t hear a peep out of them. This fake hysteria over the Georgia Voting Integrity bill is nonsense. Democrats led by Stacey Abrams claimed that Republicans requiring a picture ID in 2018 suppressed the Black and Hispanic voters.

    16. Filthy Rethuglicans

      "Demanding" that one ethnic group be hired over all others solely because of said ethnicity sounds awfully.. what's the word I'm looking for? Racist. now if we could just give other groups an unfair advantage for , say, Sergeant's exams for a major city's PD! Oh, wait, that's already been enacted...... It's a wokefest!

    17. Blue Crow

      Oh my

    18. Aj Ajaj

      Nice but why we never talk about powerful asian american women. Almost always with white men...

    19. Nic

      I personally think the limited representation of Asians in politics is because the vast majority of them simply choose other careers. There's a much higher percentage of white and black people who choose to enter politics. This is the natural result, not some underhanded attempt to keep Asian people out. If there are going to be quotas, that will end up giving an advantage to Asian people as there are fewer Asian people in the political sphere to compete for jobs with. Imagine this example. There are 50 available spots, and of those, there is a quota for 10 black people, 10 Hispanics, 5 Asians, and 25 open for anyone. Now let's say we have 500 people applying. From those 500 people, 50 black people apply, 50 Hispanics apply, and 10 Asians apply. These ratios are not far off from what occurs in reality. The data is publicly available for anyone who is interested enough to look it up for themselves. Black people and Hispanic people would have a 20% chance of getting the job while Asian people would have a 50% chance of getting the job. So, instead of having quotas for how many people of different backgrounds should be hired, we should look at the number of people who apply and give jobs to equal percentages of people who are applying - not to the percentage of people from each group who live in the U.S.

      convinced? you mean extorted the president by stating she would block all his nominations until she got what she wanted.

      Quack, quack, quack, Mr. Ducksworth.

    29. Stacy Woodruff

      Tammy Duckworth is my hero. Having disabled people in office shows my disabled kids that they can do anything when they grow up. It means that someone in power is looking out for their rights and their needs, and it gives me a measure of peace as a parent. I am so grateful for that.

      What a great interview! Both Steven and Senator Duckworth are so nice and so good at their jobs, I fell in love with both of them. How lucky I am to hear their conversation. Tammy would make a great president!

      tammy duckworth is a great guest

    38. TruePerception

      So, she blackmailed the president to enforce representation, regardless of whether any appointees were legitimately viable and the best choices. Why should we side with her? I know someone will take this wrong, but we've got to go about doing the right things in the right ways.

    39. Stephen Jablonsky

      Tammy is obviously a real person and I am delighted she is in the Senate. Republicans like Lindsey Graham are like cartoon characters and should be on the Simpsons or South Park.

      Next senator interview, please ask why are republicans there?

    47. Michelle S. Hawkins

      Question is, Does the Asian American community support him. I doubt it.

    57. George Dunn

      Ahh. Nothing quite like Leverage. I'm a Duckworth fan, but I hope this approach doesn't become too common. We probably have only two years to pass meaningful legislation before the out-party makes the traditional gains in the House, so let's not use the time to advance cosmetic changes in the party structure.

      This woman is the definition of a badass. Glad to have at least a few powerful women in office, hope the number grows

      1. Gabriel

        @Chris Vance It's so easy to get some people riled up 😅 and they call us the snowflake generation. In an ideal world, race wouldn't play a role in it, but unfortunately that's simply not the case because of discrimination and inequity. In other words, not everyone starts on the same footing and some people are born with advantages over others (having financial stability, what school system someone is in, ect which all aren't problems limited to minority groups but statistically effect certain groups more than others in addition of course to blatant racism, homophobia, ect). As such, it's important to recognize the inequality and make decisions to work toward giving everyone equal opportunity. You're going to have to be more specific about an old egotistical president with mental health issues, there's been a lot lately (and really throughout the entire history of the US). In the end, it doesn't even matter because fertility rates are plummeting and irreversible damage is being done to the climate as we know it, so the human race as a whole is going to look a lot different within a century 🤷‍♂️ but feel free to die on this hill if you think it's worth it 😂

      2. Chris Vance

        @Gabriel We should get the best people for the job period. Race shouldn't come into play. You interpret her words however you want, but I'm not afraid of calling it what it is. The more we focus only on identity the more they control us because it is a divider in our society. Why do you think the democrats beat us over the head with the race card? Why do you think the media misrepresented the George Floyd case, making BLM, riots, insurrection, and the ultimate election of an egotistical & corrupt old man with dementia possible. You're right, you're not going to change my mind because I do my own research, I think it might be you with your head somewhere undesirable. Any time you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.

      3. Gabriel

        @Chris Vance I definitely believe white people can be on the wrong side of racism 😂 freudian slip or not, you should really rewatch the video (I just did too to make sure I didn't misremember). She didn't say she wouldn't approve any white candidates, she said she wouldn't approve anyone until there was more representation. As a white person myself, I have had much more enjoyable work experiences when not everyone looks and thinks like me. In fact, studies have shown that diversity not only creates role models for young minorities but also increases an organization's business performance. Perhaps you should take your head out of the echo chamber of media and do some of your own research, I do not expect to be able to change your mind

      4. Chris Vance

        @Gabriel She stated she would only approve non-white nominees. In other words, she said she will not approve WHITE nominees. I believe you are uninformed, because that is indeed the definition of racism: discrimination or prejudice based on RACE. Believe it or not, white people can be on the wrong side of racism as well.

      5. Gabriel

        @Chris Vance I'm sorry, perhaps I am uninformed on her other policies or past actions, but are you implying that a diverse cabinet or advocating for underrepresented groups is racist?

    68. Amber Banuelos

      Hearing Tammy Duckworth, a woman I respect more than nearly any other person alive, say she felt like she failed her kid during this past year because there were just too many balls to juggle really makes me feel better. I’m not half the woman she is and felt like a complete failure, but knowing she felt the same way really helps. None of us can do it all completely by ourselves. Thank you, Senator, for admitting you’re as human as the rest of us (even if you seem like you’re really a superhero).

      "Racism isn't dead, it's on life support- being kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people that get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as racist. " - Thomas Sowell

      1. Shawn H

        @Nack Jicholson indeed everyone has bias, but Mr. Sowell is very biased to the point that he ignores contrary evidence to his beliefs in a very obvious way. Ie, he isn't just a little biased, he is very biased and unwilling to even consider things that go against his beliefs. That makes him a rather dishonest interlocutor on all topics that bias affects.

      2. Nack Jicholson

        @Shawn H Everyone is biased. Laughable.

      3. Shawn H

        Yet Sowell isn't really a great person to quote on the topic considering that he is rather biased.

      now, they all jumped out, trying to say or do nice things for asian americans. but clearly, the idea that there will be consequences for their action of demonizing china never crossed their mind, lol.

      For those screaming "racism": For starters, not one of Trump's children was qualified to hold office, nor was Palin, for example. Many, many are installed into offices that they are not qualified to hold, whereby others are not ever looked at or given a chance to shine or perform... because they are not known, not friends or not family. Many hire family members, knowing they are not qualified, but will offer OJT simply because they want that person there and are comfortable with them. America was built on stolen, free labor and nepotism (gifting those folks like/family unmerited favor). For most screaming "racism," look in the mirror. Are you the best, smartest, brightest, most qualified... or were you given unmerited favor, ever? Were you admitted to a school or training program not exclusively on your on mettle and merit? Was your great grandfather given land he didn't merit? Was someone you know given a higher wage (affording them more accouterments of life) for the same job? Without specific instruction to afford women and POC opportunities gifted to White men, there is palpable and ongoing disenfranchisement. Sen. Duckworth is a gem.

      I just love Senator Duckworth. When I was living in Chicago, one of my friends was super excited to work on her campaign. I moved, and lost contact, but I’m sure he was over the moon to be a part of a winning campaign. Keep up the great work! Your kids are adorable!!

        No, because that isn't funny. Just enjoy the show.

    99. John Paul Lafferty

      Senator Duckworth you feel like ever parent does when trying to teach your children. Keep going the first one is a give-me, you’ll get better and stop trying..

    100. allencraig02

      If you made one-tenth the effort the humanize and heroize any of your republican guests I would be most impressed. I'm a democrat and this show is getting more and more liberal and woke-appeasing every episode. Let me go see what Bill Maher is up to.

      1. StephySon

        And what dare I ask are any republicans worthy of being praised for especially after the last 5 years I’m dying to know
