The De­bate That Turned into a Brook­lyn Brawl

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

New York: Demo­cratic fron­trun­ner Hil­lary Clin­ton and ri­val Bernie San­ders chal­lenged each other’s judg­ment and ex­pe­ri­ence in a fiercely com­bat­ive US pres­i­den­tial de­bate ahead of Tues­day’s nom­i­nat­ing con­test in New York.Clin­ton and San­ders at­tacked each other over Wall Street, gun con­trol and other is­sues .While far short of the brawls that have char­ac­ter­ized Repub­li­can de­bates, the tone re­flected a con­tentious turn in the Demo­cratic con­test. Clin­ton and San­ders out-shouted each other while a split crowd roared its ap­proval. “If you’re both scream­ing at each other, the view­ers won’t be able to hear ei­ther of you,” mod­er­a­tor Wolf Bl­itzer of CNN warned.So­cial me­dia an­a­lyst Brand­watch said San­ders had more than 173,000 men­tions on Twit­ter, 55% of them pos­i­tive, while Clin­ton had more than 191,000 men­tions, 54 % of them neg­a­tive. San­ders, will fly to the Vat­i­can, where he will give a brief speech at a con­fer­ence on the world econ­omy and so­cial jus­tice. San­ders, has said the trip is not a po­lit­i­cal ap­peal for the Catholic vote but a tes­ta­ment to his ad­mi­ra­tion for Pope Fran­cis. Reuters
