Tuesday night’s debate between the Democratic candidates was something Republicans only wish they could be; it was substantive and it lacked personal insults, not just of fellow candidates, but of people in general.
There was no ‘gays are destroying the family unit’ or ‘rape pregnancy is a gift from God.’ There was no ‘Mexicans are taking your jobs’ or ‘black people are thugs.’
While the media has declared Hillary Clinton the winner of the debate, the internet puts it closer to a tie or a win for Bernie. Regardless of who won the actual debate, Bernie Sanders scored points with at least one member of the media when he prevented her from becoming trampled by her hasty colleagues.
According to Yahoo.com:
After leaving the debate stage on Tuesday evening, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., helped shield MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell from a crush of cameramen that nearly knocked her down as they sought to get him on video.
Sanders pushed the crowd away, telling people to move back. He then reached out to Mitchell who was trying to stand back up. His concern for Mitchell was genuine, as you can see in the following clip.
Regardless of how any of us feel about his politics, Bernie Sanders was a hero Tuesday night.
