Didn’t Like How the Debate Was Set Up

Barkley thought the debate itself was poorly planned and didn’t like the format.

“You can’t really judge anybody by seeing them on television, especially when you’ve got 20 people. Nobody gets a word in edgewise. That’s really unfortunate,” he said.

Barkley thought TNT would do a better job with the debates than CNN. “We can do a much better job [of the debates], especially CNN,” he said. “We could do a much better job of doing like an individual night where we have plenty of time.”

The NBA legend said among the candidates he was leaning toward supporting either Julian Castro or South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

He also said he was tired of Democrats constantly trying to paint President Donald Trump as a racist.

“‘I’m leery of calling people ‘racist.’ He says some things that can be construed as ‘racist.’ Some things he’s said are very wrong and flagrant,” Barkley said.

Charles Barkley has said more than once now that the Democratic Party has failed black Americans. Maybe, if we’re lucky, they will start listening.
