Bernie Sanders, Hillary's 'damned emails,' and the cheering press room
Bernie Sanders crawled into the tank (where he joined the media) and strengthened the possibility of being Hillary Clinton’s running mate (or, God forbid, cabinet member) last night when he said during the first Democratic debate:
Let me say something that may not be great politics, but I think the secretary is right, and that is the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damned emails!
The middle class Anderson, and let me say something about the media as well. I go around the country talk to a whole lot of people, middle class in this country is collapsing. We have twenty-seven million people living in poverty. We have massive wealth and income inequality. Our trade policies have cost us millions of decent jobs. The American people want to know whether we’re going to 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!”
See it for yourself via a CNN tweet:

What followed was a handshake to seal the deal, captured by tweeter Tal Kopan (hat tip: Gateway Pundit):

But, as noted by Gateway Pundit and Drudge, the Las Vegas press room “exploded” with unbiased media cheering the moment.
The entire press room just exploded when Bernie said that about Hillary's emails. #DemDebate— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) October 14, 2015
