GOP Chairwoman appeared on Fox News and responded to Donna Brazile telling her to “go to hell” and accusing her of using “Russian talking points.”
Ronna McDaniel: “I think Donna was out of line with her response. Of course we all recognize the Democrats did all put their thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton in 2016 because of Donna. Because of the book, she exposed that.”
“This isn’t Russian talking points, this is something the NY Times has said as recent as they interviewed 93 superdelegates who said even if Bernie Sanders had the popular vote going into the convention they would not support him.”
During the middle of the interview, Brazile told Ronna to “go to hell” and for someone who leaked the debate questions to Hillary Clinton ahead of the debate the sheer panic on her face is very telling.
This is the exchange that ignited a firestorm.
Donna Brazile: “First of all, stay the hell out of our race. Stay the hell out of our race. I get sick and tired, Ed and Sandra, of listening to Republicans tell me and the Democrats about our process.”
“First of all, they don’t have a process. They are canceling primaries. They have winner take all. They don’t have the kind of democracy that we see on the Democratic side, and for people to use Russian talking points to sew division among Americans — that is stupid.”
“So Ronna, go to hell. This is not about — go to hell. I’m tired of it, Ed. We are not trying to prevent anyone from becoming the nominee. If you have the delegates and win, you will win.”
“This notion that somehow or another Democrats are out there trying to put hurdles or roadblocks before one candidate, that’s stupid.”
