As the 2016 presidential race has heated up, Bernie Sanders has consistently kept his cool, leading an issue-oriented campaign and diplomatically refraining from low blows and attacks on his opponents despite having been everything short of begged to do so. However, a more aggressive Bernie wasn’t afraid to call Hillary Clinton on her political faults during Sunday night’s debate.

While discussing his tactics for Wall Street regulations and their difference from HRC’s plans, Sander’s began by saying,

“Well, the first difference is I don’t take money from big banks. I don’t get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs.”

Sanders pointed out that the Secretary received a large sum of money in speaking fees from the big banks, solidifying her close relationship with Wall Street and the banking industry.

With seldom seen tact, Bernie boldly addressed the duplicity in Clinton’s policy and highlighted one of the defining differences separating the presidential hopefuls: consistency.

Hillary may talk the talk, but Bernie walks the walk.
