Donna Brazile appeared with Bill Maher during which they discussed Brazile’s claim that the Democratic primaries were rigged, saying that it “doesn’t matter”.
“First of all, I feel like we spend all of 2017, stuck in 2016,” Maher said, continuing, “Can we put the Bernie-Hillary thing aside? That great divide.”
“I mean, that’s what all the controversy was with your book, that the elections were–the primaries were rigged. And, you know, it doesn’t matter, first of all, now. It’s over. And also, the policy differences between the Bernie folks and the Hillary folks were really small to begin with,” he said.
I don’t know… it seems like a pretty big freaking deal to me. If they’re willing to rig this, who knows how far they would go to get their way. As a matter of fact, I’d wager that they were expecting to win the Presidency — and not by sheer “merit”. More and more details are coming to light to show just how shady and just how far they’re willing to go.
And not just that but let’s remember that Hillary Clinton has written an entire book that essentially points the finger of failure at everyone else.
Here are a few of those points, as reported by Axio:
Russia: “What Putin wanted to do was…influence our election, and he’s not exactly fond of strong women, so you add that together and that’s pretty much what it means.”
The DNC: “I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. It was bankrupt…I had to inject money into it – the DNC – to keep it going.”
Sexism and misogyny: “Sexism and misogyny played a role in the 2016 presidential election. Exhibit A is that the flagrantly sexist candidate won.”
Bernie Sanders: “His attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign.”
Wikileaks: “The comey letter, aided to great measure by the Russian WikiLeaks, raised…doubts again. And so even though I won the popular vote, enough people in a few states…were just raising all these questions.”
Low-information voters: “You put yourself in the position of a low-information voter, and all of a sudden your Facebook feed, your Twitter account is saying, ‘Oh my gosh, Hillary Clinton is running a child trafficking operation in Washington with John Podesta.'”
Women under pressure from men: “They will be under tremendous pressure from fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers not to vote for ‘the girl.'”
Political journalists: “[Journalists] can’t bear to face their own role in helping elect Trump, from providing him free airtime to giving my emails three times more coverage than all the issues affecting people’s lives combined.”
