The rats are abandoning the sinking ship.
And that ship — listing hard and about to capsize — is the S.S. Hillary Clinton. The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee has become so top-heavy with scandals lately that some of her own party’s biggest names are not only jumping overboard, they’re firing torpedoes at her.
Yesterday in a bombshell expose, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile, made headlines by confirming that Clinton, her campaign and the DNC were all in cahoots against Bernie Sanders. Something many suspected, especially after the John Podesta email dump last spring.
Brazile outlined how the DNC under an ineffective Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who handed control over to the Clinton camp, effectively subverted democracy by denying Sanders a fair chance. She explained that former President Barack Obama left his party $24 million in debt — giving Clinton a chance to co-opt the party apparatus by paying off most of that debt.
Sanders supporters are livid — as they should be. Even U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren took a stand against Clinton yesterday — and given her usual waffling that should tell you something. When asked during a CNN interview if the Clinton campaign and DNC rigged the election against Sanders, Warren responded “yes.”
No nuance, no dancing around the question, just a hard left hook — to the former leader of the Democratic Party.
Clinton’s political days are numbered and now that she’s lost Brazile and Warren, expect others to pile on. She will be hard-pressed to find anyone who will feel sorry for her.
After all, her unraveling is her own doing.
