At multiple junctures, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has shown cracks in her stone-faced facade, attacking her rival Bernie Sanders over Wall Street ties, questioning whether or not he’s actually a Democrat, and implying that his supporters should fall in line behind her.
Perhaps this is a result of Sanders convincing win in Wisconsin last night, his sixth victory in the last seven contested states.
Chairman Reince Priebus commented on last night’s defeat for Hillary, saying “For months we heard from the Clinton camp that they’d have the nomination wrapped up by March, but as we head into April she’s still struggling to put away a 74 year-old socialist who never before sought office as a Democrat.”
That struggle and that frustration led to an interview with Politico in which Clinton claims she’s not even sure Sanders is a Democrat.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tore into her Democratic primary opponent and two potential Republican opponents in an interview with Politico.
“He’s a relatively new Democrat, and, in fact, I’m not even sure he is one,” Clinton said of Sanders. “He’s running as one. So I don’t know quite how to characterize him. I’ll leave that to him, but I know there’s a big difference between Democrats and Republicans.”
The interview, posted Wednesday morning, occurred before Clinton’s loss to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Wisconsin primary, the latest in a string of Sanders wins.
This morning in an interview with the crew at Morning Joe, Clinton ripped Sanders for his alleged Wall Street ties and said that his supporters should fall in line.
Via America Rising:
During an interview on “Morning Joe,” Secretary Clinton repeatedly attacked her Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders, simultaneously arguing that his positions on Wall Street – a topic Sanders frequently uses to criticize Clinton – make him unqualified and that his supporters should fall in line behind her.
Clinton’s specific attack against Sanders’ readiness was her belief that he “hasn’t done his homework” on his criticism of Wall Street. That criticism is a central tenet to Sanders’ candidacy and one that has led to millions of votes and numerous primary victories for the Vermont Senator.
Later, Clinton argued that Sanders supporters should fall in line behind her.
“Look, I think it’s exciting to be, in effect, protesting. I remember I did that a long time ago when I was in my 20s, and I totally get the attraction of this,” Clinton condescendingly said.

Will Sanders supporters do as the Clinton machine wants and fall in line behind Hillary?
