Below is an edited transcript of the topics covered in the livestream.
On the state of the race:
LZ Granderson: I understand this desire, to want to have something different - a different voice and different perspective, but what’s disgusting to me is that people are supporting candidates [who don’t have the credentials to be president]. It’s like voting for a Jonas brother for president. When are you going to merge the two ideas; where you have someone that’s different but also has the credentials to run for president?
Matthew Dowd: If you have any political pedigree, you’re out.
Who has the most to gain or lose?
Matthew Dowd: What’s your sense? Who’s got the most to gain, to lose?
Matthew Dowd: I put a lot of faith in American people...
LZ Granderson: They have trump leading and you have faith in the American people?
Why the 2 percent are still running?
Matthew Dowd: So what happens to the people at 1 and 2 percent? Why are the people with 2 percent still in this; what do you think that’s about?
LZ Granderson: First of all, what else is Bobby [Jindal] going to do. He can’t go back to Louisiana. He’s of color, so let’s not pretend he doesn’t help with diversity.
