    this is quite fucked up lol

      No it’s life, “natural selection” in a lighter sense. The weak can’t complain when the strong take advantage of their fuckery.

      It’s not their fault that they got deceived,Β they are poorly educated and live in the 80s, but the reason trump won is because of democrats disliking Hillary and refusing to vote for her

      Why?

    • Posted by DickJohnson3434, at Reply

      That’s just restating your declaration.

    • Posted by Ana Kasparian's feet, at Reply

      How do you figure?

    • Posted by DickJohnson3434, at Reply

      Because you’re just restating that you consider it pathetic. I don’t. You’ve given me nothing to suggest otherwise other than your assertion.

    I’m a therapist from Rhode Island who works with emotionally vulnerable teens and I must say that TYT are just not honest in this video.

      Another self claimed professional (or minority) that fails to back his claim with evidence.

      Jacob Hansen Your Doctor Samuel Beckett. Leaping from life to life, striving to put right that which once went wrong and hoping, each time, that the next leap, will be the leap home! How many “lives” have you had now, you crazy Quantum Leaper? I feel like you’ve been everyone and done everything! My favourite episodes are when you leap into a woman! “Oh, Boy!”

    One of the reasons why I deactivated my facebook

    • Posted by BlueMoonBuffoon, at Reply

      Is another reason because you don’t really have any friends?

    • Posted by march51990, at Reply

      Facebook friends are not real friends. do you really think you have 500 friends?

    This is what happens when corporations have unlimited power. We can all look forward to this and much more under Donna Tinyhands

    • Posted by Aaron Ammann, at Reply

      Oh, I forgot, they forced the kids to engage with their product.

    • Posted by Dragon1717, at Reply

      We as a society are Ok with this. It doesn’t bother us.

    • Posted by thisscreensucks, at Reply

      companies dont have unlimited power.
      this isnt because facebook can do anything they want…because they cant.

  8. Posted by Hal Jordan, at Reply

    Leave the kids alone, you vile vultures.

    • Posted by Trollop 7, at Reply

      I like meeting people!

    • Posted by Melanoma Trump, at Reply

      That TYT has not even slightly moderated their comment section recently is unreal. I’ve left a note on the
      members notice board and mentioned it on some twitter accounts that it is time for a fucken troll shake up.
      Not censorship like they are always defending, it’s the disturbing and probably paid trolling of people who leave 15 comments per video. They got rid of a guy called Dylann Roof today., He’ll be back.

    • Posted by Melanoma Trump, at Reply

      If you google Cenk’s twitter account (I logged in, except it’s public) in the last 2 days people have been
      hassling him and it’s not like him to even see it. Except he made a few comments what’s happening from
      some guy HA Goodman or some Small Fry. It’s all bullshit.

    • Posted by Thomas de Quincey, at Reply

      I can’t imagine why they’d want to block someone naming himself after a racist terrorist serial killer. How odd.

    facebook won’t change it’s policies, people need to change their behavior and stop posting every little thought they have, only for it to be used against them

    • Posted by Gustav The Mad, at Reply

      People are cruel get used to it.

    • Posted by Kawiboy, at Reply

      Social media, where the “product” is YOU.

      +SainterSan So is it fair to say there’s some history between you?

  10. Posted by Carole McNeil, at Reply

    If you think they are only target kids…LOL.

    • Posted by thisscreensucks, at Reply

      nobody said that.
      people are just slightly more shocked that they specifically target emotionally vulnerable teens.

      No genius, they DO understand though that kids are far EASIER to manipulate than adults.

    advertising to appeal to insecurities is nothing new

    • Posted by Aaron Ammann, at Reply

      I don’t even think it is necessarily immoral. It is just business, and it works in certain ways.

    • Posted by Tychoxi, at Reply

      That’s not what’s new, what’s new is the tools something like Facebook gives advertisers to microtarget those insecurities.

    • Posted by Ryan Prince, at Reply

      Haha

    • Posted by Gerroditus, at Reply

      Neither is murder or rape anything new; that doesn’t mean that you should ignore it.

  12. Posted by Valerie Valois, at Reply

    why is this even a story? I mean wasn’t this a given already? this is how companies work why would anyone be surprised about this lol

      And yet you profess to be outraged by some remarks that Trump made on a bus?!?

  13. Posted by Ray Fire, at Reply

    so many jokes especially the TYT staff.

  14. Posted by Nick Balis, at Reply

    I think YouTube targets me when I’m depressed. In fact, when I’m borderline suicidal, a TYT video pops up in my recommendations. Is YouTube trying to push me over the edge?

      No I am cancer and if my BLOATUS orange husband doesn’t stop pounding Ivanka as usual at Mar-A-Lago
      this weekend – when he should be learning how to read – then I am going to out myself as the gold digging,
      fake wife that New York certainly doesn’t want in their zipcode anymore. No more desperately pretending to be a ‘woman of the people’.

      All first ladies have had causes and charities to spend their time with and sink their fangs into. I have only my failing skin care range, ‘Caviare Systeme 6’ – which can be fished for by ‘people of the people’…. (AD NAUSEUM) #sendherback

      Only at this late stage do you realize that other TYT viewers are so thick that they need your joke moniker explained to them.

    • Posted by Ryan Prince, at Reply
