Donna Brazile Tells RNC’s McDaniel to ‘Go to Hell’ in Cable Interview

Former interim Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman Donna Brazile is slamming Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel after being shown a clip in which McDaniel suggested that the Democratic Party is trying to rig the election against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

McDaniel said in a Tuesday morning interview on Fox News of the Democratic primary, “It is leading towards a brokered convention, which will be rigged against Bernie if those superdelegates have their way on that second vote.”

Brazile — who is now a Fox News contributor — shot back, saying, “I want to talk to my Republicans: stay the hell out of our race. Stay the hell out of our race. I get sick and tired … of listening to Republicans tell me and the Democrats about our process.”

Later she said, “For people to use Russian talking points to sow division among Americans, that is stupid, so Ronna, go to hell.”

“We are not trying to prevent anyone from becoming the nominee,” she continued. “If you have the delegates and win, you will win.”

Brazile closed out the segment by saying “stop using Russian talking points, Madam Chairwoman, period.”

See Brazile’s comments below:

Brazile seems to be referencing The Washington Post report that the Russians are reportedly working to boost Sanders in the Democratic primary in an effort to sow division.

Trump has repeatedly accused Democrats of conspiring against Sanders. In a tweet on Monday, Trump declared, “They are staging a coup against Bernie!”

McDaniel responded to Brazile’s remarks on Twitter, writing on Tuesday, “I’d be having a bad day too if my party was still hopelessly divided. Talk of a brokered convention and the DNC trying to stop Bernie obviously hit a little close to home.”

As for a brokered convention, that still seems possible — the FiveThirtyEight predictions shifted after Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the presidential race, which is a move that boosted former Vice President Joe Biden. However, the model still has a brokered convention as the third most-likely outcome, after victories by Biden or Sanders.

  1. Well since Donna was in the DNC leadership when they planned and executed the “get rid of Bernie “ plan.
    I don’t think a socialist ( who doesn’t like his fascist cousins) should be anywhere near the Oval Office, the DNC should then not allow him to run as a Democrat when he is an independent.

    Hmmm sorry about the common sense- Nancy Pelosi probably can’t understand one thing said here

  2. Ms. Brazile, aka “Let’s sneak Hillary the debate questions “, should really sit this one out.

    Telling Ms. McDaniel to “go to h*ll” for speaking the truth was out of line. For a Democrat, nothing new here.

  3. RNC has a short term memory. It wasn’t more than 4 years ago they were in this position with Trump and the tea party before that. I dont think anyone in the RNC had anything good to say about Trump 5 years ago. Things change when you’re elected in a primary.

    This sort of thing happens in politics and happens a lot in the US where there are only two political parties.

    Whoever is elected in the dem primary will get the support of the DNC. Primaries are supposed to battle out the direction of a party and how the politics is played is part of it.

    1. And yet Trump still won! No “Super Delegates” to cancel the votes of the constituents against their wishes in the Republican Party. Where are the “never Trumpers” now? Pretty much all are looking for new gigs.

      Fine “Democratic” system ya got there Democrats. Kind of like a Russian election. Not surprising. Many similarities. At least Crazy Bernie is honest about where he wants to take the country.

    2. The difference is that the DNC actively in 2016 and now apparently here in 2020 are trying to change the rules to Bernie doesn’t get the nomination.

      The RNC didn’t Trump either but there wasn’t any underhanded move to get someone else the nomination.
