Hillary Clinton refuses to commit to a debate against Bernie Sanders in New York according to what a top Hillary advisor told CNN’s Kate Bolduan. Hillary is allegedly concerned with the tone Sanders is using in his campaign ads.
“This is a man who said he’d never run a negative ad ever. He’s now running them. They’re planning to run more,” Joel Benenson, Clinton’s top aide, said. “Let’s see the tone of the campaign he wants to run before we get to any other questions,” Benenson continued when asked if Hillary would agree to a debate in New York.
Benenson failed to specify what was mentioned in the Sanders ads that could be considered an attack, or why a veteran politician like Hillary wouldn’t have the ability to defend herself during a debate against her Democratic opponent. One would think a debate would be the perfect platform to repudiate claims made in a 30-second spot. Honest politicians, should love the opportunity to defend themselves in a public forum, right?
The truth is, Benenson has been whining about Bernie’s “negative” ads since January. Are the ads low-brow and Trump-esque in mocking the way Hillary looks?
Is Sanders putting out deceptive ads that lie to voters about Hillary’s voting record?
Not even close.
Back in January, The Atlantic covered one of the ads Benenson had been complaining about:
“All of this sturm und drang is about a single Sanders ad released on Thursday that takes aim—implicitly—at the six-figure speaking fees that Clinton accepted from top Wall Street firms like Goldman Sachs after she left the State Department in 2013.”
