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

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.

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.

"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.

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!!

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.

@ 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.

@ 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.

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.

"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

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'.

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.

@ 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.

"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.
