Donna Brazile, the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee and one time CNN contributor, took a shot at the cable news network for “ripping me a new one,” instead of allowing her to defend herself after WikiLeaks emails surfaced that showed that she leaked town hall and debate questions to the Clinton campaign.
Brazile’s criticism came during a speech at Hollins University, according to the Roanoke Times :
“CNN never gave me a question. I wish CNN had given me some other things, like the ability to defend myself rather than ripping me a new one.”
Brazile didn’t deny the allegations, but said she “never got on Clinton’s campaign airplane or prepped the candidate for any of the debates,” according to the Roanoke Times.
CNN denied that it had supplied any questions in advance to Brazile, but CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker said that he had “no tolerance for her behavior or that kind of behavior,” and that it “hurts all of us.”
Brazile also commented on the disappointing election results:
“It’s not as therapeutic as actual grief. Actual grief, there’s a stage in which you can move on, but in political grief, it’s circling because everybody feels as though their indignation, their righteous indignation, can be aimed at and turned to someone else.”
That indignation—certainly not righteous—is being exhibited by protests and riots against the election of Trump, calls to abolish the electoral college and sniping by the liberal media, which tried in vain to defeat Trump.
