Trailing in the delegate count and facing mounting doubts about the viability of his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders waged an all-out offensive on frontrunner Hillary Clinton at their debate Sunday in Flint, Michigan — an aggressive approach best encapsulated by one particularly tense exchange.

During a tussle over the 2008 bailouts of Wall Street banks and the U.S. auto industry, Clinton interrupted Sanders, who made no effort to hide his annoyance.

"Excuse me, I'm talking," the Vermont senator said, moments after pointedly denouncing Clinton's "friends" in the financial industry.
