I’m pretty disappointed in myself folks. We are almost done with the week, and I completely forgot about Donna Brazile’s incredibly stupid remarks during Bill Maher’s show last week.
Donna Brazile used to work for CNN. When internal emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign were leaked in 2016, Americans were made aware of how the Clinton campaign and CNN were working together to take down Bernie Sanders.
Here’s what her employer, CNN, had to say at the time:
Her departure was announced Monday amid fresh revelations that she sent questions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign in advance of a CNN debate and a CNN-TV One town hall.
In a statement, CNN said it was “completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”
CNN said it “never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate.”
Brazile resigned from the network on October 14, three days after Wikileaks released an email in which Brazile says she got advance questions before a town hall event. “From time to time I get the questions in advance,” she wrote in the email.
At the time, Brazile denied giving the campaign advance warning, saying that “as a longtime political activist” she had shared her thoughts “with each and every campaign, and any suggestions that indicate otherwise are simply untrue.”
The Brazile email foreshadowed a question asked by TV One host Roland Martin at the town hall. Earlier this month, when asked by CNNMoney about the email, Martin did not deny sharing information with Brazile.
Then on Monday, Wikileaks released more emails indicating that Brazile sent a question to the Clinton campaign, then wrote: “I’ll send a few more.”
Brazile’s contract with CNN was suspended in July, when she was appointed interim DNC chair. Now, she will not be returning to the network at all.
So, Brazile was fired because she was trying to help Hillary cheat, and got caught. Over the course of the last several years she has been letting her rage build up. Now that Roger Stone might be going to prison, she feels as though she can put the blame on him…
“Well, he’s going to be sentenced February 6th — I hope he roasts in hell, that son of a bitch,” Brazile said. “[Stone] worked with WikiLeaks to destroy not just Democrats, but to destroy our democracy, so I hope he roasts in hell, and I wish I’m at the sentencing hearing cuz I’m going to wear the best looking red dress I could and say go to hell. Not jail.”
Brazile went on to say that “they threatened us they went after us and he understood what was at stake, and you saw the testimony said, they were gleeful. Screw them, bunch of bastards. They were gleeful.”
Talk about projection.
Remember, Roger Stone didn’t leaking debate questions to Hillary, Donna did. Roger Stone didn’t working to tear down Bernie Sanders in the DNC primaries, Donna did.
