The sun sets, the sun comes up, and Bernie Sanders takes loud shots at Hillary Clinton for being too close to Wall Street.
These are things that we all know to be true.
But Hillary sat down with Business Insider's spiritual leader Henry Blodget yesterday and said in no uncertain terms that she wishes Bernie would just get her name out his damn mouth already, because she can't even make out what he's even saying over all that yelling.
"Why is it so bad to be close to Wall Street?" Blodget asked during the interview at Purchase College in New York.
"I never can really tell what he's talking about," Clinton, the Democratic presidential frontrunner, said of her sole remaining primary rival. "It's just one of these sort of attacks that he pulls out all the time."
And not only that, she thinks Bernie is also full of sh!t sometimes.
On Thursday, the line of criticism appeared to strike a nerve for Clinton, who engaged in a confrontation with a climate-change activist who questioned whether she would "reject fossil-fuel money" in her campaign.
"I am so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me," she said. "I'm sick of it."
It appears that Hillary is finally done playing out her kabuki routine of Wall Street ambivalence and is ready to tell voters to their face that she is closer to Wall Street than Bernie because she, like, knows stuff. What she said to Blodget is one of her most declarative statements yet that she refuses to paint the financial sector with one evil brush...
“I don't think anybody would argue that during the eight years leading up to the Great Recession a lot of bets were made, risks taken, that weren't good for the economy. And I don't think all the blame lies with Wall Street.
“I think a lot of the blame lies with the Bush administration. They went back to trickle-down economics. They took their eye off the mortgage market. They took their eye off the finance markets, and we ended up in a big mess.
"I think there were bad actors in the government and bad actors in the finance, mortgage, markets industries that need to be called out and held accountable," she continued. "But you also have to make sure that you've got the credit flowing, the financial instruments, that are going to enable Main Street to be successful."
More proof that Hillary is inching ever closer to just throwing up her hands and rubbing her thumb and forefingers together in a "Get PAID" hand gesture the next time someone asks her about her paid speeches at Goldman Sachs.
