The numbering for this series is going to head easily into triple digits very quickly. On election night, I said one clear upside will be watching the Democrats turn viciously on the Clintons for botching their hold on power, which is the main thing liberals care about. So this story about Donna Brazile getting fried alive at a DNC staff meeting is a taste of what’s to come:
Donna Brazile, the interim leader of the Democratic National Committee, was giving what one attendee described as “a rip-roaring speech” to about 150 employees, about the need to have hope for wins going forward, when a staffer identified only as Zach stood up with a question.
“Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.”
Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say.
“You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”
Pass the popcorn.
P.S. I hope Zach, whoever he is, has a long career in Democratic politics, even though their ineptitude has “cut 40 years off my life expectancy.” With a keen mind like that . . .
JOHN adds: Pass the popcorn, you said? Your wish is my command!
