It was a meaningful response. What was he supposed to say?
“Cool” is a meaningful response? It was dismissive and lacked any substance.
That seemed to be the appropriate response in that situation.

It’s ok dahamage, he’s right, I’m going to go back to my bosses at the DNC to let them know.
I’d say they couldn’t do any worse, but I suppose anything is possible.
It sounds to me like the could do a lot worse. They could actually do all of the things that your favorite rightwing Youtube channels have told you that they’re doing.
Whatever man. I’m glad your inability to see what’s going on lends you some comfort. Stay angry, though. Seems to be a winning strategy for the left so far.
The left didn’t have a candidate in the 2016 election, unless you count Jill Stein. The fact that you don’t understand that is what annoys me most. If you think Hillary is leftwing, then you’re wrong. Plain and simple.
I’d say Bernie was as popular as he was precisely because he wasn’t your typical Democrat.

NPR – With Voters Sour On Major Parties, Group Recruits ‘None Of The Above’ Candidates
The effort comes at a time when voters are dissatisfied with both major political parties. Nearly 70 percent of voters say Republicans and Democrats fail to adequately represent the American people, according to a recent survey from the nonpartisan Democracy Fund.
A Colorado-based group called Unite America is trying to use that dissatisfaction to elect more independent candidates to office nationwide. They have endorsed 29 unaffiliated candidates running for all levels of office from across the country.
Among the statewide candidates with the group’s support are Gov. Bill Walker of Alaska, the country’s only unaffiliated governor, and Greg Orman, who’s running for governor in Kansas.
In Colorado, they’ve helped five state legislative candidates qualify for the ballot, campaign, and get their names out with promotional videos.
When the time comes, vote them out.
Yes. No more party-line votes. No more pity votes. Kick out all these partisans and get some sensible people in there who won’t cater to the worst at the extremes.
Every time someone tells you that not voting Democrat is effectively voting for a Republican, let them know that they’re the problem, not you. Repeated emotional votes in favor of blind nationalism on the right and divisive identity bullshit on the left has put us on the road to mediocrity. Maybe the tens of millions who skip voting might be inspired to take part if their best option wasn’t always the slightly better one between two trash choices.
“The left” is not the Democratic Party. Most of the Democrats are centrists at best. Your assessment of our elected officials is piss poor. Other than that, though, you’re actually right. I have no interest in voting unless the candidate stands for what I want, and no candidates in my state or district do that, so I probably won’t bother voting. I will vote for Democrats if they man up and get liberal, but until that happens, I won’t. How about this: give me some examples of “divisive identity bullshit” from prominent Democratic officials throughout the country. I’m waiting. And how is it the left that is guilty of this specifically? Blind nationalism actually is identity politics. It’s extremely prominent on the right. And for the record, there are problems with identity politics on the left (I even posted an example of idiots trying and thankfully failing to censor To Kill a Mockingbird), but it is not unique or even more noticeable on the left as opposed to the right and it certainly is not prominent in the Democratic Party.
