Hillary Clinton must be getting concerned about Bernie Sanders because she took the gloves off at MSNBC’s Democrat debate.
And the Vermont senator went at her just as hard Thursday.
Sanders accused Clinton of being part of “the establishment” backed by Wall St., the fossil fuel industry and drug companies in an attempt to paint a stark contrast between them.
Rather than answer the charges made by the socialist Sanders, Clinton instead ran to the woman card to deflect.
“Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment. And I’ve got to tell you that it is really quite amusing to me,” she replied.
The fact that the former first lady, senator and secretary of state thinks that only Bernie Sanders thinks she is part of the establishment is rather interesting.
As Sanders continued the attack pressing her on her tens of millions in donations and speaking fees Clinton, who had no real answer, shot back at the senator and was booed by the crowd.
“I really don’t think these kinds of attacks by insinuation are worthy of you. And enough is enough. If you’ve got something to say, say it directly. But you will not find that I ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that I have ever received,” she said. “I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks and let’s talk about the issues.”
Watch the exchange below.
