On the eve of the heated election to determine Virginia’s next governor, current Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat and longtime ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton, appeared on MSNBC with Katy Tur to weigh in on the bombshell book by former DNC Chair Donna Brazile that Hillary Clinton colluded with the DNC to rig the election against Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential primary.
In a back and forth with Tur, Terry McAuliffe repeatedly said that “nobody cares” about Donna Brazile’s revelation and in fact, “not one person cares” about what she has to see in her new book with comes out this week.
MSNBC’s KATY TUR: “Donna Brazile and the allegations that are coming out in her new book. There is a lot of people on both sides of the issue here saying that the DNC completely rigged, there are others saying that it’s not rigged at all, this is just the way politics works and people are making too big of a deal over it. The fact of the matter is it’s in the news, it’s casting a negative spotlight on the Democratic Party. I mean, you have to have some concern about how that’s going to play out in Virginia. Correct?”
DEMOCRAT TERRY McAULIFFE: “Nobody cares.”
Katy Tur: “Nobody cares? Let’s listen to Donna Brazile. One more time. Hold on. Let’s listen.”
Terry McAuliffe: “Nobody cares about what Donna Brazile has said in a book. Nobody.”
Tur: “Governor, one second. Let’s listen to Donna Brazile.”
DONNA BRAZILE: “For those that are telling me to shut up, they told Hillary to do that a couple months ago, you know what tell them? Go to hell. I’m going to tell my story.”
TUR: “You don’t think anybody cares about her story?”
McAuliffe: “Nobody cares. You know what they care about? They care about beating Donald Trump tomorrow. They care about beating Ed Gillespie. Not one person in Virginia who is looking for a job, wants to get health care, making sure their kids get quality education — I mean, I know everybody in Washington in the little bubble loves to talk about this stuff.”
Pretty big charge coming from Terry McAuliffe, arguing that there’s not even one person who cares about Donna Brazile’s bombshell. Considering that McAuliffe himself is a former DNC Chairman, it shows that the civil war within the Democrat Party is on like Donkey Kong.
By the way, if a Republican had talked this way about a black woman — that no one cared what she had to say — the charges of racism would be massive. Therefore, we have to ask, is Terry McAuliffe a racist?
Get the popcorn…
