Well, that didn’t take long. About five minutes after Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced that she would resign at the end of the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton dubbed her the Clinton campaign’s 50-state honorary campaign chair. Nothing screams of corruption more than the shifting of political positions during an election year. Next up, it’s rumored that Roger Ailes has been hired by Donald Trump. I kid you not.
I was really sad that I would never again be able to mock Debbie… but, that has been rectified. Geez… these trolls just never, ever fade and go away. Ever.
From BizPac Review:
If Bernie Sanders’ supporters were upset before when hacked and published emails revealed that the Democratic Party conspired to propel Hillary Clinton to the party’s nomination — with the blessing of former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz — they’re livid now.
After resigning from her position as chairwoman, Wasserman Schultz gave the Sanders supporters the ultimate middle finger by joining the Clinton team as her campaign’s nationwide “honorary chair.”
After DNC emails — hacked by GUCCIFER 2.0 and published by WikiLeaks — revealed the party’s involvement in the Clinton campaign, Wasserman Schultz eventually resigned.
In a statement released Sunday, Wasserman Schultz said that she’ll still open and close the national convention beginning Monday and “address our delegates about the stakes involved in this election not only for Democrats, but for all Americans.”
However, “going forward, the best way for me to accomplish those goals is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention.
In a statement released by Clinton, the former secretary of state revealed that Wasserman Schultz would join her campaign as honorary chairman.
Bernie Sanders’ people must be livid and I can’t blame them. After coaxing Sanders to endorse her and after WikiLeaks showed the world once and for all that Debbie had been actively fighting and plotting against Sanders in support of Clinton, this is simply a massive slap in the face to them.
From Chicks on the Right:
In a sort of thank you letter, Clinton said the Miami congresswoman will serve as a surrogate for her national campaign, helping the team in Florida and other key states.
“I look forward to campaigning with Debbie in Florida and helping her in her re-election bid — because as president, I will need fighters like Debbie in Congress who are ready on day one to get to work for the American people,” Clinton wrote.
“For the last eight years, Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had my back. This afternoon, I called her to let her know that I am grateful. Her leadership of the DNC has meant that we had someone who brought Democrats together not just for my re-election campaign, but for accomplishing the shared goals we have had for our country,” Obama said in a statement Sunday afternoon.
Yes, and Hillary has Bernie’s back… although the knife sticking out does get in the way a bit. This is an arrogant and shameless move on Clinton’s part, as well as Schultz’s. In the end, it may rip the entire party apart. Pass the popcorn.
