Former interim DNC chief Donna Brazile dropped a mostly-ignored bombshell this week proving that Hillary Clinton’s campaign hijacked the Democratic Party to cheat her way to the presidential nomination. Now she is revealing even more, including that she seriously considered stripping Hillary of the nomination and giving it to then-vice president Joe Biden. It’s too bad that never happened because it would have made a very entertaining presidential race the biggest spectacle in US political history.
The Washington Post reports:
Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated replacing Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”
Oder of failure? Wasn’t that Hillary’s campaign slogan? No wait, it was “I’m with stupid” with the arrow pointing.
In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair to initiate the process of removing Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) from the ticket after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, collapse in New York City.
Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters to defeat Republican Donald Trump. But then, she writes, “I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them.”
There’s actually quite a bit of liberal bullshit going on here. Brazile has previously stated that Hillary rigged the primaries, and yet she was proud of her getting the nomination? I guess that’s fairly constant with liberal values; being proud of cheating and theft. Then, Brazile wants us to believe that she was convinced Hillary couldn’t win, but decided not to put up a better candidate because of female empowerment. Finally, Brazile knew Hillary cheated, but couldn’t take the nomination away from her out of fear it would hurt her feelings.
I have a feeling Brazile is just making shit to sell books because she actually helped Hillary cheat by feeding her questions in advance of a town hall debate against Bernie Sanders. It doesn’t make it any less funny, but it’s important to understand that this is probably not based in reality. I know, it’s shocking that a liberal would lie about something.
Just for fun, let’s imagine Brazile really did consider this and then followed through. Joe Biden would have lost worse that Hillary. The reason why he didn’t run is because he knew he would get embarrassed. Despite what all of the liberal pundits say, the 2016 election was about “no more Obama” and Biden would have been the next worst thing to actual Obama.
I do think we were robbed of some comedy by this never happening though. I had been calling for Biden to run simply because he says the most insane things ever. Even if it was just for a couple of months, a Biden campaign would have been a knee-slapper. Also, if you thought it was humiliating for Hillary to lose the presidential election, imagine if her own party kicked her to the curb in favor of a man.
I don’t know how much of what Donna Brazile says is true, but one thing is for certain: the Democratic Party is in shambles and they are starting to eat their own. Considering how much they’ve lost over the past 8 years, the only logical thing left is for them to point fingers and attack one another.
