Sanders Dismisses Complaints About His Tone at Debate: She Interrupted Me!
Bernie Sanders got some criticism for the way he addressed Hillary Clinton at last night’s Democratic debate, and today he dismissed the complaints about his tone.
He got a bit snippy at Clinton during the debate, even shouting, “Excuse me, I’m talking!”

Sanders asked a reporter today, “Did you check how much time Hillary Clinton spoke during the debate?… Did you check out how often Hillary Clinton interrupted me?”
Some have suggested Sanders’ tone was sexist, though as Mediaite’s own Alex Griswold wrote earlier, it’s not exactly sexist to tell someone to stop interrupting them.
