At the CNN Democratic Presidential Primary Debate on Thursday, Hillary Clinton defended her ties to Wall Street by comparing herself to President Barack Obama.
“Make no mistake about it, this is not just an attack on me,” she said about Bernie Sanders’ accusation that she is controlled by her donors. “It’s an attack on President Obama.”
The crowd, which often sounded more like a stadium of sports fans, didn’t respond well to the answer.
“Let me tell you why,” she said as the crowd booed her. “Let me tell you why, you may not like the answer but I’ll tell you why. President Obama had a Super PAC when he ran. President Obama took tens of millions of dollars from contributors. And President Obama was not at all influenced when he made the decision to pass and sign Dodd-Frank, the toughest regulations on Wall Street in many years. This is a phony attack that is designed to raise questions when there is no evidence of support to undergird the accusations he is putting forward in these attacks.”
