Accuracy in Media

Trying to get back in the good graces of Democrats, former acting Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile told Chris Matthews last week that she does not believe Trump was legitimately elected last year.

Brazile’s sentiments echo remarks Clinton made questioning the election more than a year after it took place, sending shockwaves through the Democratic Party.

“Donald Trump cracked the blue wall,” she said. “He was able to win votes in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, but, yes, I do believe Secretary Clinton is making a very important point. The role of social media, this coordination between WikiLeaks and possibly the Trump campaign—we need to get to the bottom of it.”

Matthews pressed her on whether she agrees with Clinton’s opinion of the election.

“My personal view is that it was not a legitimate election,” Brazile said.

Brazile was roundly criticized by Democrats after she said that the 2016 Democratic primary was “rigged” for Clinton — remarks that she later attempted to walk back.

    But I guess it is OK for ABC, CBS, NBC, Public Television, CNBC, and MSNBC to all be and constantly favoring the Democrat (LIBERAL Candidate ). But now they are going to Crucify Wikileaks that is 100% Factual in their reporting.

    “Legitimate” is not a word in Brazile’s vocabulary. This hack is trying to make a buck with her book while her ultimate agenda is to cast doubt onto Hillary so she’s unable to be a factor in 2020. Brazile’s goal is to promote Michelle Obama as a 2020 candidate at the proper time. After all, what could be more justified in her mind than a black woman named Obama in the WH with her hubby running the show from behind the curtain?

    “Not a legitimate election” meaning they failed to rig it adequately to their favor. Incompetence everywhere you look at the DNC
