My Spanish Is Terrible: Andrew Yang Live-Tweeting The Debate Was Better Than The Debate

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang was not on the debate stage Wednesday, so he opted to live-tweet his own observations as the first group of ten candidates squared off.

Yang, who is scheduled to appear in the second group of candidates debating Thursday, began diplomatically by simply calling the debate “interesting.”

This debate is very interesting.

But as former Texas Rep. Beto ORourke broke into Spanish during his first opportunity to speak, Yang remarked, “My Spanish is terrible.” (RELATED: Beto Spends Half His Time Answering In Spanish While Cory Booker Watches, Shocked)

(He later apologized to his Spanish teacher, telling her that it was not her fault.)

Sorry Ms. Trovato my 9th grade Spanish teacher – not your fault. ????

Later observations included concern over how to keep a straight face if another candidate was answering a question and he was still in the shot.

The trickiest thing will be keeping my facial expression neutral while the person next to me is talking and Im on camera.

When technical difficulties forced an unplanned commercial break, Yang was quick to blame “the Russians.”

Oh no – technical difficulties. Its the Russians.

Yang appeared to be particularly interested in the fact that a small step might be offered to make candidates appear taller.

Inside scoop – you get an option as a candidate to have a little stage to stand on for the #DemDebate to make you look taller.
