Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton had one of their sharpest exchanges of the Democratic presidential campaign to date during Sunday’s debate in Flint, Mich., when the Vermont senator cut his rival off for interrupting him.

“Excuse me, I’m talking,” Sanders said after Clinton tried to cut in during a heated exchange about the 2008 legislation that bailed out Wall Street banks and U.S. auto companies.

Sanders replied tartly, “If you are talking about the Wall Street bailout, where some of your friends destroyed this economy—”

Clinton cut in, saying, “you know,” before Sanders shut her down aggressively.

“If you’re going to talk, tell the whole story,” Clinton said.

“Let me tell my story, you tell yours,” Sanders replied.
