Hillary Clinton on Sunday Morning TV

With Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union, Hillary discussed, among other things, the water crisis in Flint, Michigan (where she is going today), the Sanders campaign allegations on banking influences, and the "shout out" from male pundits.


She is very well-informed on the subject of lead poisoning from both a medical and an infrastructure point of view.  She knows what needs to be done medically, for the children exposed to the toxic water, and she also knows what needs to be done to the water lines. Do any other candidates from either party have the battery of information on this subject that  Hillary has?


She explained, once again, how her financial plan is broader than Bernie Sanders's plan as she also is going after giant corporations that gouge the public and evade taxes. She said she doesn't understand why he doesn't join her in this battle.


As to the shouting, she said we all know that we are still dealing with a double standard and that sexism is not a thing of the past. By the way, anyone who listened to her at her Portsmouth event last night must admit that her normal tone at rallies is conversational not the full-volume blast that Bernie continually puts out.

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos, she voiced her appreciation of Bernie's SNL stint. She also took on the extreme remarks of Marco Rubio on abortion in last night's GOP debate. There, too,  she took on the spin about the bankruptcy bill - specifically with regard to the effect of the proposals on separated and divorced women and their children. She said she is not going to take the Sanders smears anymore.  Largely, she was arguing against comments by Elizabeth Warren there.  As to the Goldman Sachs speeches, she said everyone who has given speeches to private organizations should then release their transcripts and the standard, if this is going to be the new standard, should apply to all.

She also discussed the Flint situation on Meet the Press.  (That repeats later on MSNBC.)  She was on Face the Nation as well. That repeats later on CBSN.
