I haven’t written anything in a while, so quick shout out to Donna Brazile for making words flow my keyboard and steam stream from my ears.
Early today I was at my desk having a perfectly fine Thursday during Infrastructure Week, err, excuse me, Tax Reform Day, and I start seeing all this chatter about Donna Brazile “smashing” and “taking down” Hillary Clinton.
What in good name of Joe Biden just happened.
Well, here is what happened. For some unknown – actually we do know – reason, Donna Brazile, a lifelong Democrat and former interim DNC chair decided that today would be an excellent day to publish a portion of her book on Politico about how the DNC and the Clinton campaign shared finances well before Hillary became the nominee.
She wrote about how the whole system was rigged and it wasn’t fair to poor Bernie “Not a Democrat” Sanders and how she cried when telling Bernie Sanders that the DNC and Hillary for America shared finances.
Give me a f*cking break. Donna Brazile cried because Hillary had an unfair advantage during the primary? Is this same Donna Brazile who gave Hillary’s campaign debate questions ahead of debates against Bernie Sanders during the primary?
As the kids would say, I’m woke to your bullshit, Donna.
So how did this turn out? Wonderfully, as you can surely imagine.
Instead of talking about how the Republican’s are attempting to add $1.5 trillion to the national deficit, or how not one, not two, but three of Trump’s campaign advisors are facing federal charges, or how Jeff Sessions appears to have lied in front of Congress again, or ho… oh you get the point.
Instead of doing any of those things, we instead are talking about Elizabeth Warren going on Jake Tapper and flatly saying that the Democratic primary was rigged. We have Trump tweeting about money laundering (yes, he’s an idiot and that’s wrong, but what whatever) and Democratic collusion. We have an event that ended nearly a year and half ago as the top story in the news.
Meanwhile, this welcome distraction will help Republican’s whip votes for a bill that asks college students to fork over nearly $50 billion in lost tax credits while corporations get a $1.4 trillion break.
All because Donna Brazile decided today was a good day to make up for hurting Bernie’s feelings nearly two year ago.
