Well, that looks exciting — Sanders in Wyoming. Image: video still

There were surprises on all sides in Wisconsin last night after Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz won decisive victories in their primaries. Sanders is also projected to win Wyoming, but the real battle is set to be in New York, which votes April 19. Clinton still leads heavily in terms of pledged delegates and superdelegates.

Today’s show also reports on the racism and xenophobia fueling Donald Drumpf’s bid for the White House. CNN political commentator Van Jones calls this campaign “the most dangerous development I have seen in my lifetime.”

Also, Bernie Sanders’ performance at an interview by the New York Daily News editorial board has been criticized by some news media as “bungled.” However, Juan González, who was present at the interview, had a very different impression. And Van Jones had this to say:

There are no big checks. This is a people’s movement. They are going to have to bury this movement in New York City, and they know it. You’re going to see a vetting of Bernie Sanders like you’ve never seen. You’re going to see the mainstream media go after him. Now there’s blood in the water on specifics. They’re going to go after him on specifics, you know, way beyond anything any candidate has had to address.
