the

Best Case/Worst Case: 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates

-The second round of Democratic debates were this week,

and let's face it -- most of these people

don't stand a chance of being president.

In fact, for a lot of these candidates,

the risks of staying in might even outweigh the benefits.

Let's check it out in a segment we call "Best Case/Worst Case."

[ Cheers and applause ]

First up, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio.

Best case for Bill de Blasio -- he wins one of the debates.

Worst case -- he misses the debate

because he's stuck on the F train.

[ Laughter and applause ]

Next up, Marianne Williamson.

Best case for Williamson -- she gets a boost in her book sales.

Worst case --

she becomes President of the United States of America.

[ Laughter and applause ]

Next up -- Senator Bernie Sanders.

Best case -- he finally secures

the Democratic presidential nomination.

Worst case -- he throws his arms up so hard

they get stuck that way,

just like his mother always warned him would happen.

[ Laughter ]

Next up, Montana governor Steve Bullock.

Best case -- he makes it to the next debate.

Worst case -- people who donated to the Bullock campaign

realized he's not Sandra.

and shuts the whole campaign down!

[ Laughter and applause ]

Next up, Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Best case -- she becomes a once-in-a-lifetime President

who permanently transforms American society.

Worst case -- when the 1,000,000th person asks her

if she's likeable enough to become president,

she finally snaps, murders them, and spends a decade in prison.

Next up, Senator Michael Bennet.
