|Last night was the ninth Democratic presidential debate. And it went down in Las Vegas, ahead of Nevada's Democratic caucuses this weekend. With voting in two states down, the pressure was on all the candidates to prove themselves. And it showed with some tense face-offs.|
|All the things. Here's what the candidates on stage had to answer for:|
|Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg...the new guy on stage was first called out for his controversial stop-and-frisk policy that disproportionately targeted minorities. And for his comments on the LGBTQ+ community and women. He was pushed to release female employees from their NDAs. His response? Some of the women just "didn't like the joke." Also, he "can't speak for all billionaires" but he wants you to know he's too rich to file regular-people taxes.|
|Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)...the one who came out swinging. But mainly because what she has to answer for is a lack of traction with Iowa and New Hampshire voters.|
|Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)...his Medicare-for-all funding. His brand of democratic socialism. And the recent behavior of his Bernie Bros. Something we get into more here.|

But last night, their main target was...each other.|Comedian Mo'Nique has aired out her issues with Oprah Winfrey in a publicly posted open letter, which accuses the media mogul of making "life harder" for her.
