Until last Thursday, I hadn’t seen a single Democratic debate during the whole five year run-up to where we are now in the 2016 presidential race, so I was curious to see if Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton would be reasonably courteous and respectful of one another. Well let me just say this: after seeing the Republican debates, which have been so unbelievably civil (such as, for example, when Donald Trump openly admitted to loving his “friend” Ted Cruz’s book A Time for Truth – Reigniting the Promise of America while politely taking issue with a point or two in it), watching the two remaining Democratic candidates viciously snipe at each other and the press is just embarrassing for this country. Like when Bernie jerked his thumb toward Judy Woodruff and called her a “Dumb-Ass Ho” for asking for specifics on how he was going to pay for universal healthcare, and later said of Hilary, “Lookit that face! You wanna be looking at that face for the next four years?"
Madame Secretary was hardly any better. She must have said six or seven times “Notice the way Bernie keeps repeating, ‘And let me just say this’ every time he responds to me,” which prompted Sanders to wag a finger in the air until he was recognized and could respond. “Let me just say this,” he began. Hilary pounced, beaming into the camera and saying, “See!”
What a couple of clowns!
