Bernie Sanders Says American People Fed Up with Clinton's 'Damn Emails'

Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton shake hands over emails.

“The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails!” he said during the CNN debate at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas.

Clinton laughed, smiled and unsurprisingly said she agreed. “Thank you," she said. "Me too."

The moment drew a standing ovation from the audience and Sanders said there were more pressing issues facing the country.

Clinton beamed, and shook his hand. "Thank you, Bernie. Thank you," she said.

Almost immediately, the Sanders campaign sent out an fundraising email referring to the moment.

The controversy surrounding Clinton's use of a private email server while Secretary of State has bogged down her campaign, and is believed to be one reason for her drop in poll numbers.

During the debate, Clinton reiterated that she takes responsibility for her mistake, and made reference to the congressional committee investigating Benghazi and her emails, which she said was created to bring down her campaign.

"I think it would be really unfair not to look at the entire picture," she said. "I think it's pretty clear what their obvious goal is."
