Brazile: The 'Titanic Egos' of 'Barack, Hillary, and Debbie' 'Leeched' the Party of Vitality

"As I saw it, these three titanic egos–Barack, Hillary, and Debbie–had stripped the party to a shell for their own purposes.”

Former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile's new book is the gift that keeps on giving to the Right. Having already dropped the bombshell verification that Hillary Clinton stole the nomination from candidate Bernie Sanders during the 2016 election, now Brazile asserts that the Democratic party was "leeched of its vitality" by the "titanic egos" of Hillary, former President Barack Obama, and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Yahoo! News reports that Brazile, in her newly released 2016 book about the campaign titled Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House, wrote that “We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by ] that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected."

Brazile accused Obama of caring too "deeply about his image" and using the committee to act as a bank for his personal "political expenses." Sounds about right.

He "used the party to provide for political expenses like gifts to donors, and political travel," claims Brazile, noting that he also used DNC funds for "his pollster and focus groups" later into his second term even though he couldn't run for president again.

"This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went along with all of this because she liked the power and perks of being a chair but not the responsibilities," Brazile wrote with astonishing candor.

She added that although she believed Obama, Clinton and Schultz loved the Democratic Party, they "leeched it of its vitality and were continuing to do so":

“I knew that these three did not do this with malice. I knew if you woke any of them up in the middle of the night to ask them how they felt about the Democratic Party they would answer with sincerity that they loved this party and all it had done for the country and for them. Yet they had leeched it of its vitality and were continuing to do so."

"As I saw it, these three titanic egos–Barack, Hillary, and Debbie–had stripped the party to a shell for their own purposes,” Brazile wrote. That's how we saw it too, Ms. Brazile. Thanks for your honesty.
