CNN hosted another Dem Debate on Sunday night and it mostly went well for both candidates. At least their remarks weren't in the gutter like the GOP candidates in their last debate, thank God.
But Bernie is a grumpy guy and when Hillary dared to interrupt him, he waved his hand in her face and growled "Excuse me, I'm talking." That may not seem like much in an election season when the GOP candidates are yelling at each other incoherently every chance they get.
But here's the thing - no women needs to be put in her place this way, and Hillary has a right to defend herself even to Bernie. He has to be held accountable for his personality and mannerisms, since being a President is somewhat a cult of personality vote. If she as a woman had interrupted him that rudely while waving a finger towards him, pundits would be calling her a shrieking harpy. Oh wait, MSNBC pundits Chris Matthews and Lawrence O'Donnell called her voice "shrill" a few nights ago. Funny, they never talk about Bernie's nasel twang or the fact that he yells constantly!
From the New York Times
When he attacked Mrs. Clinton over what he called “the Wall Street bailout where some of your friends destroyed the economy,” she tried to cut him off.
“Excuse me, I’m talking,” he said.
After a brief dramatic pause, Mrs. Clinton said sharply, “If you’re going to talk, tell the whole story.”
“Let me tell my story and you tell yours,” Mr. Sanders shot back.
Audience reacted pretty strongly against Sanders' "EXCUSE ME IM TALKING" at Clinton. Clinton, though, seemed unfazed. #DemDebate— Emily Atkin (@emorwee) March 7, 2016
