Sanders to Hillary on Wall Street Ties: ‘Let’s Not Insult the Intelligence of the American People’

hilsan
Thursday night at PBS Democratic presidential primary debate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) challenged his opponent Hillary Clinton on her Wall Street contributions. Sanders said, “This has blown me away. Never in a million years would I have believed I would be standing here tonight saying that we have received $3.5 million individual contributions from well over a million people. Now, Secretary Clinton’s super PAC, as I understand it, received $25 million last reporting period, $15 million from Wall Street. Our average contribution is $27. I’m very proud of that.” Clinton said, “Let me respond. We are mixing apples and oranges. My 750,000 donors have contributed donations. That demonstrates the strength of support we have among people who want to see change in our country. But the real issue I think the senator is injecting into this is that if you had a super PAC, like President Obama had, which now says it wants to support me—it’s not my PAC—if you take donations from Wall Street, you can’t be independent. I debated President Obama numerous times. He was the recipient of the largest number of donations ever. When it mattered, he stood up and took on Wall Street. He pushed through and he passed the Dodd-Frank

The campaign of 2016 GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has pulled an ad off the air after it was reported that one of the actresses is a softcore porn star. The ad opens with people sitting in a circle at what appears to be a therapy group. They discuss how they have been lied to by Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). The actress, Amy Lindsay, tells one of the people in the group: “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time.” Lindsay has appeared in many softcore porn films, including Erotic Confessions, Carnal Wishes, Secrets of a Chambermaid, and Insatiable Desires. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told Breitbart News that the actress responded to an open casting call. “The actress responded to an open casting call. She passed her audition and got the job. Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the production company. Had the campaign known of her full filmography, we obviously would not have let her appear in the ad,” Tyler said in an email. The actress told BuzzFeed News that she is a conservative. Prior to the Cruz campaign pulling the ad, Lindsay told BuzzFeed News in a phone interview on Thursday that she’s

Bill O'Reilly Fox
Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly responded to GOP presidential candidate Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s criticisms of FNC’s coverage of him compared to its coverage of fellow candidate Florida Sen. Marco Rubio by saying, “I can tell you that Senator Rubio has been much easier to book than Senator Cruz” on Thursday’s “The O’Reilly Factor.” O’Reilly stated, “Well I can’t speak for Fox News, but I can tell you that Senator Rubio has been much easier to book than Senator Cruz. In fact, Senator Rubio will be with us in two minutes, and Senator Cruz will not be with us even though we invited him on tonight. We also invited Ted Cruz on tomorrow night, and we invited him on earlier this week.  I don’t really know what else to do. I’ll even buy him dinner. We hope to see Mr. Cruz on Friday.” After playing a clip of GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson criticizing the press, O’Reilly said, “I want the candidates to complain if they feel aggrieved. But I don’t want them to be paranoid. Here’s how the campaign should be covered. Hard news: Just report the facts, don’t need any shading. Commentators like me are free to give opinions on just about everything. Morning

Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refused to say she disagreed with former Secretary of State Madeline Albright’s declaration that women who don’t support other women have a “special place in hell” during Thursday’s “PBS NewsHour” Democratic presidential debate. Hillary said, in response to a question on why she wasn’t getting higher support from women voters, “Well, first, Judy, I have spent my entire adult life working toward making sure that women are empowered to make their own choices, even if that choice is not to vote for me. … I have no argument with anyone making up her mind about who to support. I just hope that, by the end of this campaign, there will be a lot more supporting me. That’s what I’m working toward.” She was then asked, “As you know, just quickly, your strong supporter, former secretary of state Madeleine Albright said the other day that ‘there’s a special place in hell’ for women who don’t support other women. Do you agree with what she said?” Hillary responded, “Well, look, I think that she’s been saying that for as long as I’ve known her, which is about 25 years. But it doesn’t change my
