It was enough to turn your stomach.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper deserves credit for bringing up the email scandal swirling around Hillary Clinton during Tuesday’ nights Democratic presidential debate — though there was little mention of mishandling classified information.
But when the topic was raised, of all people, it was Bernie Sanders who came to Clinton’s defense.
After Clinton pivoted during her response to dismiss the House select committee on Benghazi as being “an arm of the Republican National Committee,” Sanders chimed in.
”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,” he said.
Sander’s comment drew plenty of applause from a heavily-Democratic audience, not to mention a broad smile from Clinton.
With her trademark cackle, Clinton said, “Thank you. Me too. Me too.”
“Enough of the emails!” Sanders concluded, after bringing up several economic issues. “Let’s talk about the real issues facing America.”
Clinton gave him a heartfelt “thank you” and a follow-up cackle as she heartily shook his hand — the only thing missing was a “job well done.” Meanwhile, the crowd ate it up, giving Sanders a standing ovation.
