Yang isn’t just being like that annoying Jeopardy contestant who claims his buzzer wasn’t working and that’s why he lost to James Holzhauer. According to a post-debate analysis by The Hill, Yang actually did have the least amount of speaking time out of all the candidates.

The second Democratic debate was befuddling to say the least. With 10 disparate candidates vying for precious airtime on stage, it felt as though most of them didn’t know which point to make, what question to respond to, or even where to put their hands. … [Read more...] about Kamala Harris did not show up to the Democratic debate to play games

(Seven candidates, including heavy hitters like Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, exited the race that month.) Others waited until so-called Super Tuesday in March.
