After missing the last debate in Des Moines, Iowa, Andrew Yang will return to the stage in the upcoming eighth Democratic debate in New Hampshire.
Andrew Yang has called out MSNBC for its questionable treatment of his bid for the White House.
The network hosted the most recent Democratic presidential debate in Atlanta on Nov. 20, in which the Asian American candidate logged a total speaking time of just 6 minutes and 43 seconds — a scarce opportunity he received after being ignored for 32 minutes.
A fundraising director for Andrew Yang criticized MSNBC for “silencing” the candidate in the latest Democratic presidential primary debate, describing the move as a case of “systemic racism.”
The debate, which took place in Atlanta on Wednesday, saw the 44-year-old tech entrepreneur wait for roughly 32 minutes before having the chance to speak — and for the shortest amount of time among all 10 candidates present.
Andrew Yang’s loyal band of followers, the “Yang Gang,” has pointed out that their candidate was ignored for over 30 minutes before being asked a question during the most recent Democratic presidential primary debate in Atlanta.
The 44-year-old entrepreneur-turned-presidential candidate was forced to wait roughly 32 minutes before he was given a chance to speak by the moderators. Twitter users pointed out that while fellow candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren was called to speak when she raised her hand, Yang was ignored when he attempted to do the same.
