While admitting that it may not have been “great politics,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) came to Hillary Clinton’s defense during Tuesday’s Democratic Party presidential debate.
“The secretary is right,” Sanders said in response to a question from Anderson Cooper about the controversy surrounding Clinton’s private email use. “The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails.”
“Me too, me too,” a smiling Clinton responded.
Sanders then took aim at media coverage of the email server.
“I go around the country, talk to a whole lot of people. The middle class in 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 millions of decent jobs,” he said. “The American people want to know whether we’re gonna 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.”

‘I told you this would happen’: CNN’s Cuomo tears into Trump for trying to ruin Dr Fauci
On Monday, CNN's Chris Cuomo slammed President Donald Trump for his latest attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci.
"Fauci is not to blame for any of this. Trump is, period," said Cuomo. "And now that the reality is sinking in to blue and red, to left, right, and reasonable, Trump is doing what he always does: trying to shift blame to someone else. And we must reject efforts to shift stink onto the one man we can trust."
"Now, in these White House attacks, we see their principles on display as well, don't we?" said Cuomo. "Eat your own, lie about Fauci, deny your role, and defy the mandate of leadership that we gave you. And how about using an unnamed official to smear the only credible voice they have on this voice. Where are the worries about anonymous sources now, Mr. President? This is making America great again? You pardon a convicted liar and lie about a man with a conviction to fight a pandemic, which you apparently lack."
