After debate moderator Anderson Cooper grilled Hillary Clinton on the controversy surrounding her emails that has lingered since the summer, Bernie Sanders jumped in to weigh in on the subject.
“Let me say something that may not be great politics. But I think the Secretary is right. And that is that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails…”
Clinton then chimed in, “Thank you! Me too! Me too!” Sanders went on to add,
“…and let me say something about the media as well. I go around the country, talk to a whole lot of people, middle class of this country is collapsing. We have 27 million people living in poverty. We have massive wealth and income inequality. Our trade policies have cost us million of decent jobs. The American people want to know whether we’re going to have a democracy or an oligarchy as a result of citizens united. Enough of the emails! Let’s talk about the real issues facing America!”
Clinton appeared elated to receive Sanders’ support and thanked him with a smile and a handshake.
