BRAZILE Fires Back at CNN for ‘Ripping Me a New One’
Anyone in Public Life that can Lie after being Caught Red Handed on a National News program is what is wrong with those self righteous operatives within the Democrat Party. Her use of a foul analogy for treatment she rightly deserved reeks of a systemic problem among democrats. You got Caught! Face the Truth! ...tmiraldi
Donna Brazile fired back at her former employer, saying CNN ripped her “a new one” instead of letting her defend herself against leaked emails showing she gave Hillary Clinton a sneak peak at debate questions.
“I wish CNN had given me some other things, like the ability to defend myself rather than ripping me a new one,” Brazile said at a Monday event at Hollins University, according to the Roanoke Times.
“CNN never gave me a question,” Brazile said of her resignation.
Brazile, who is the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, revealed that she’s still feeling pain over Clinton’s stunning defeat.
“It’s not as therapeutic as actual grief,” she said. “Actual grief, there’s a stage in which you can move on, but in political grief, it’s circling because everybody feels as though their indignation, their righteous indignation, can be aimed at and turned to someone else.”
She continued: “Despite the darkness of the times, the difficulties, I remain hopeful that I will see that light. … And I believe we still will see, in our lifetimes, a female president of the United States.”
The allegations surfaced after stolen emails published by WikiLeaks showed the Clinton campaign receiving debate questions from Brazile, before the CNN-hosted events during the Democratic primary contest.
“CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate,” a CNN spokeswoman insisted at the time.
Brazile’s contract with the cable network had been suspended since she accepted the interim leadership position at the DNC.
