As President Obama gets ready to leave his post as the 44th President of The United States, the campaign season has been epic with both the Republicans and Democrats slinging lots of shade towards each other daily. But the battle between Democrat presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton is very hard to watch as both are battling for the African American and Latino vote.
So, the former Secretary of State called into Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning to clean up and clarify the statement Senator Sanders made about her supporting the mass incarceration of African Americans in the 90s.
Clinton, Ebro and Peter Rosenberg joked a bit before getting down to business.
Here are some highlights from the interview:
ON WHY VOTERS SHOULD BE EXCITED FOR HER CAMPAIGN:
That’s a great question and I really do appreciate it. I want to break down barriers that are holding Americans back. I’ve seen over the course of my life. We’ve made progress but not enough. I care passionately about income and equality, I’ve been working on it for a really long time. I care about racial equality, women’s equality, LGBT equality.
THE FAMOUS 1994 CRIME BILL: There were things about the 94 crime bill that help keep people safe. An important provision about violence against women. There was a pact that include the banning of assault weapons which I would like to see again.
The morning show also went on to talk about the recent incident Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton ran into while on the campaign trail dealing with protesters from #BlackLivesMatters as well as many other subjects.
