Whoa! The first Democratic Debate of 2016 started off with a bang on Jan. 17, as Hillary Clinton went for the jugular while taking a jab at Bernie Sanders. During the debate he and Martin O’Malley went after her and her ties to Wall St., but she came back at them harder!
Now that 2016 is underway, Hillary Clinton seems to be taking no prisoners. The Presidential candidate slammed her competitor, Bernie Sanders, during the Democratic Debate on Jan. 17, when she, herself, was accused to have too close of ties with Wall St.
Hillary denied having close ties with Wall St. Instead, she said Wall St. should be afraid of her because she’s going after them. She said she’s serious about cracking down on Wall St.
“I’m the only candidate who’s said I will not raise taxes on the middle class… and yeah, that will also come out of Wall St.,” Hillary said during the debate.
Unfortunately, not many believe that she’d go hard on Wall St. Some Twitter users laughed off her comments.

Either way, Hillary definitely made a point to take a jab at Bernie, saying he’s soft on Wall St. And sadly for Bernie, he doesn’t seem to be anyone’s favorite person. During the Jan. 14 Republican debate, Bernie’s legitimacy as a candidate was questioned by the Republican candidates. So he’s getting hit from both sides. It must be rough to be Bernie Sanders.
Currently, Hillary is leading the democratic primary, according to Huffington Post, as the news outlet claims she has 51% of the democratic vote. Meanwhile, Bernie’s numbers have been steadily increasing, and he’s not far behind with 37.5%.
