Donna Brazile Exposes "The Cult Of Clinton" - She Lost Due To "Arrogance"

Tyler Durden's picture

Former Chair of The DNC, Donna Brazile, continues on her 12-step program to Clinton-sobriety today telling MSNBC's Joe Scarborough that the "arrogant" Clinton campaign was more like "cult" than a political campaign.

As Grabien reports, Brazile said of the Clinton campaign...

"It was a cult," 


"I felt like it was a cult."

Brazile further said that the main reason Clinton lost was due to her "arrogance."

Brazile pulls no punches...

SCARBOROUGH: “Bottom line it for us. Why did they lose? Was it, at the end of the day, arrogance?”

BRAZILE: “Yes, Joe. It was a cult, I felt like it was a cult. You could not penetrate them. I mean, I — look, you can — I’m a grassroot organizer. I know street politics better than I know sweet politics. I know how to touch people where they live, work, pray, and play. But I cannot help a candidate, Joe, if I don’t have the resources, if I cannot spend the resources that the party is raising because there’s a blind agreement between...“

BRZEZINSKI: “...Exactly..."

BRAZILE: "...A campaign..."

BRZEZINSKI: "...Unspoken even"

BRAZILE: "...And, again, I want my party to come back from this stronger. I like what Tom Perez is doing. I know he said this is not about my book. Baby, I know it’s not about my book. But it’s about making much-needed changes and reform inside the party. I’ve sat at the table. I want to make room for others to sit at the table, but you have to come into the room knowing you have to change the recipe. Yesterday was a wake-up call for the Democrats, too. Because you know what? It’s coming from the bottom up. It’s not top-down anymore. It’s bottom-up politics now.

Plus the flobby old bitch could not keep up with Trump.

He was halfway across the country every morning while she was still struggling into her diaper.

"It was a cult," "I felt like it was a cult."

Soundls like a Trumptards could learn from this......

She lost, because she's a piece of human shit, who should be under a jail.

Anybody who would vote for a Clinton probably does not have balls, or a brain, or any capacity for critical thinking.

toady's picture

There's a end game behind this.... I can't really buy the D's are eating themselves... how does this benefit Hillary in 2020?

chunga's picture

I think the reds are being dared to do something about it.

FoggyWorld's picture

Not going to happen until Sessions is removed.

Trump needs to wake up, too, because the entire nation is wasting so much time just because these real criminals are not being taken before the bar of Justice.

So while the crickets game continues, Trump's agenda is trashed to take up air time that in Nixon's day would have been just stuffed with what had gone wrong.

She lost because she's a POS, there is human in her.

arrogance...and obomba marxist crap + blm black crime and riots

also big shout out to the founding father that pushed for the electoral college.  makes things much MUCH harder to rig.  without it, we would likely have the most hated woman on earth as prez

"Brazile further said that the main reason Clinton lost was due to her "arrogance.""

Wait a minute.  The MSM has been telling me the main reason she lost was due to the RUSSIANS!!!  What a joke the whole Russian bullshit story is.  These assholes try and ram this 1984 propaganda down are throats.  They should fuck off and die for lying.

Beam Me Up Scotty's picture

Yes Cheka, the electoral college is the only check on keeping the high population states (and that amounts to the big cities like New York and LA), from turning the small states into slave states.  If we didn't have the electoral college, we would basically be the Hunger Games, not that we already aren't headed well into that direction already.  Send your taxes (your labor) to the capital!!

Donna Brazile has really made a lot of anti-Clinton noise recently.....  wonder how long that'll last

cbxer55's picture

Until she commits suicide by two shotgun blasts to the back of the head. 

chunga's picture

It's more than just Sessions.

The Clintons have been shitting all over everybody for 40 years without consequence and the deplorables want to see the swamp drain campaign rhetoric come to fruition.  

The blues just came out and admitted to election rigging and made Seth Rich a household name. If the reds do nothing about this, as should be entirely expected, there will be some pretty demoralized supporters, many of whom voted for Trump for the sole reason he was not Hill'rey. It's a bold tactic but likely very effective.

Mission accomplished.

@ toady:

If you saw yesterday's article about the Chinese affection for Trump - there was a great truth in that article, about "the strong preying on the weak".

That is the natural order to everything, whether it's the animal kingdom, pro sports, the business world, or anything else.

The Dems will do themselves in, solely on the basis that their platform is contrary to the laws of nature.

My theory is that the DNC is outing everything on Hillary so they have a clean slate in 2020

chubbar's picture

It's not going to be a clean slate with that racist Perez in charge of the DNC, what an asshole. He completely supported that racist ad that was run on Gillespie.

Can you ever stick to the topic at hand? Apparently not.

Your trolling skills suck dude.

Croesus's picture

@ Bay of Pigs:

It's amazing...we used to get some very intellectual discussions going in the comments here. Now, we get lots of low-intellect trolling from shills who couldn't hack a real fight here.

I wonder when it happened, because it seems to have been a gradual regression; a few of the greats left, or were banned, and the whole "flavor" of things changed.

His name was Francis Sawyer.

Bes's picture

now gentlemen,

what's the matter?

don't like it when people connect dots that

you prefer not to be connected?

was zh your safe space?    hahaha

this isn't trolling, it's a discussion.

the Obamabots, are just as fucking bad as the Canklewhatevers, and are equally as bad as the

dumbfuck trumptards.  

full stop. 

did i trigger you? 


(ps - btw, i upvoted your filthy piece of shit comment about shillary)

Bay of Pigs's picture

The subject is Brazile not Trump. You equate the two as the same. That is ridiculously stupid and complete fucking nonsense. And since you asked asshole, some of us have been very critical of Trump and his cabinet and policies. We don't have problems understanding the differences either.

As I said, try to troll harder.

Bes's picture

apparently you can't comprehend. 

i was referencing the cult like following

politicians cultivate

not fucking Brazile. nor equating her to trump.

and second, perhaps you have been critical of trump

but there are a lot of trumptards around who couldn't fathom

saying a peep against their orange god.


now if you consider this is trolling then maybe you're more of a trumpflake then you realize

and you need your own 12 step orange detox program

bigkahuna's picture

It is trolling. Thats ok, if you work on your humor - it does well. You get the downvotes - but also the laugh.

pippi68's picture

Don't feed the trolls. If you ignore them to the point where they don't get a rise out of anyone for a while, they soon fade away. Be strong. Not one morsel from this point forward.

california chrome's picture

Speaking of trolls, I know folks are going to downvote me bigly because they assume I'm a troll but I think Donna Brazile is hot.

There I said it. Lol.

New_Meat's picture

to each her own taste.

I think she'd taste yucky.

bigkahuna's picture

If you go with that - you've probably got a date - then you can bring her over to our side if she is not a sociopath. If she is a sociopath - you must do what you must do.

libertyanyday's picture

ad hom is so 1990's.

You LEFTY'S constantly create stupid replacement words, trumptards, canklewhatevers.............why dont you bring some meat to the table instead of the tofu.  debateable points not an empty void into your comedic shortcomings.

"It's amazing...we used to get some very intellectual discussions going in the comments here."

It could have something to do with the cognitive dissonance associated with our candidate, now POTUS, and his draining of the swamp, his thinly veiled plan to accelerate the destruction of the middle class, and the clear direction of moar woar we are headed to, now that hes gone full Shabbos Goy.

 Cognitive dissonance

medium giraffe's picture

It's changed a hell of a lot in the time I've been here, I remember some good debates.  I miss the bond traders that would appear out of the woodwork from time to time too, always had something interesting to say. 

The swing from thoughtful libertarian/anarchic to lowbrow conservative statist has been a big dissappointment.  Can't remember the last time I heard someone mention Rand or Bastiat or even Jeykll Island.

People used to understand why you were critical of govt too, now they just think you must be on the other team.

Oh, and 'cheesepopes'.

This is a bear hangout

 Bears are either

 - Selling pencils on the street corners from a tin cup

 - Retired

 - Hibernating

 - No longer trading

This place will heat up again when either the bear market comes back or everyone sees the obviousness of the coming hyperinflation's picture

Schadenfreude.  Market is a fraud.  Taxes, health care and Bitcoin are the only intellectual subjects debated.

The list is long. Cheeky Bastard, mako, akak, TruthInSunshine, I could go on and on. Some of those ZHers of the past were a pretty special breed of intelligence and wisdom. Some of the best posters I’ve ever seen. Hands down.

Cheers and best wishes to all of them and all who remember their contributions to this site.

Well, spill the beans then. Who are you?

I remember most handles btw.

@ Logan's Run:

Man, it's been a while since I saw a post from you! How have you been?

I agree that it's different than it was, but I would make the point that those who have "gone silent" are part of the problem, not part of the solution, no? By staying in the shadows, the comments section's readership loses...

I don't post like I used to, mainly because I'm a lot busier these days...

Also, at Bes:

I get your comment about Trump-tards, Obamatons, and Clintonbots being more alike, than not...and agree with you on that.

I voted Trump (to vote against Clinton), but he is definitely approaching Clinton levels of shittiness, in terms of the screwjob he's laying on The People.

I personally, will not be happy, until voting happens with bullets, instead of ballots. We'll only really be free, when the last politician is strangled with the entrails of the last banker.

libertyanyday's picture

what are trumps potus he CANT spend OR legislate...........i think the hatred is misdirected , CONGRESS is responsible for every single law, not potus.............

Leaders dont need govt, lemmings demand it.

Boscovius's picture

"CONGRESS is responsible for every single law..."

And by and large it's the Republican shitfucks who refuse to do the peoples will who are responsible for the deadlock.  But we sort of knew that going into this.  The swamp is a dark and murky place where many a hero becomes lost to the whispers and shadows.
