Democratic strategist Donna Brazile threw the book at RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel during a heated Fox News interview in which she told McDaniel to “go to hell” for employing Russian talking points to meddle with the Democratic primary.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused the Democratic Party of “rigging” the primary against Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). It’s part of Trump’s scheme to divide Democratic voters so he can win re-election in November. It’s also a Russian talking point being pushed as part of Vladimir Putin’s effort to sow chaos and interfere with the election.
During an appearance on Fox News, McDaniel repeated the accusation.
“I think it’s going to be muddled coming out of Super Tuesday,” McDaniel said. “It does depend on how big the lead that Sanders takes out of California is, if he picks up a huge proportion of delegates, but I don’t see anyone getting out soon. It’s leading towards potentially a brokered convention which will be rigged against Bernie if those superdelegates have their way in that second vote.”
Sure enough, Trump has made the accusation again since Sanders ended his campaign, thereby making Biden the presumptive nominee.
But this blatant propaganda enraged Donna Brazile enough that she told McDaniel right where to go, especially since Republicans rigged their own 2020 primary for Trump, much to the shock of Fox News host Ed Henry.
“Stay the hell out of our race,” Brazile told McDaniel. “I get sick and tired of listening to Republicans tell me and the Democrats about our process. First of all, they don’t have a process. They’re cancelling primaries. And for people to use Russian talking points to sow division among Americans, that is stupid. So, Ronna, go to hell.”
“Whoa,” Henry said.
“No, go to hell!” Brazile reiterated. “I’m tired of it, Ed. We’re not trying to prevent anyone from becoming the nominee. If you have the delegates and win, you will win.”

South Carolina Republicans did cancel their primary to make sure nobody would challenge Trump, so McDaniel has no business criticizing Democrats. She certainly should not be pushing Russian propaganda, and it’s about time someone called her out.
It should also be pointed out that Biden led in delegates at the time Sanders made his announcement.
