Heading into the DNC, I really couldn’t care less. All the fun shit already happened at the RNC. There’s no way they’re going to top that bad boy. It’s like in college when you planned a dope theme party for Saturday night but then someone throws a better one on Friday. You’re totally sunk. You’re still throwing that party, you just have no chance of it being anywhere near as fun as the one the night before. People are just sleepwalking through it.
Really, the biggest news from the DNC came last week, when Wikileaks dropped nearly 20,000 classified emails from the Democratic parties. One group of these showed an exchange between high-ranking Democrats that proposed the creation of Craigslist ads under the guise that they were in fact the Trump campaign looking for hot women who had no problem getting handsy with Trump himself on the side. And I mean, that’s real bad, and almost juvenile in a sense, but it’s not nearly as bad as a separate group of emails which showed exchanges between the Clinton campaign and high-ranking Democratic officials (which included Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairperson of the Democratic party) constructing an “anti-Bernie Sanders narrative” to ensure that Clinton won the nomination.
Essentially, these emails prove two things. Well, one thing we didn’t know and one of them everyone already knew.
- Hillary is a liar and a cheater.
- Even if Clinton and the Democratic party didn’t actually ruin Sanders’s campaign, they had colluded to do so and thus compromised the integrity of the American voting system as well as the separation of candidates and party hierarchy.
In response to these accusations, Wasserman Schultz stepped down from her position as chairperson of the Democratic National Committee. Makes sense. She got caught acting on a conflict of interest while holding the highest possible position as a Democratic politician. Maybe she should go home and rethink her interests. Nope. Of course not. Why would she do that when she can just join Hillary Clinton’s campaign?
Via Washington Times:
Ms. Wasserman Schultz was widely criticized during the Democratic primary by supporters of Bernie Sanders of using her position at the DNC to tip the race toward Mrs. Clinton. At least some of that was confirmed at the weekend by the release by Wikileaks of internal DNC emails, which forced her to announce her resignation Sunday. But in a reaction statement to reporters Sunday, Mrs. Clinton gave Ms. Wasserman Schultz a soft landing by announcing that she would join the Clinton campaign.
“I am glad that she has agreed to serve as honorary chair of my campaign’s 50-state program to gain ground and elect Democrats in every part of the country,” Mrs. Clinton said in the statement.
The statement went on to say that Ms. Wasserman Schultz “will continue to serve as a surrogate for my campaign nationally.”
In the same statement announcing Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s position with the Clinton campaign, the former secretary of state neither criticized Ms. Wasserman Schultz or other DNC staffers nor did she even mention why the former DNC chief had resigned.”
It’s just unreal at this point. Hillary’s not even trying to hide it. “Ok, go do something illegal.” “Shouldn’t we maybe be covert about this?” “What’re they going to do? Arrest me?” *everyone in the room laughs and agrees*. We essentially have reached the point where she could shoot someone in the face and probably just get away with it.
Predictably, Sanders is not very pleased by the news about the Democratic party attempting to undermine his campaign. However, it does not seem that he has plans to restart his campaign in an attempt to win the nomination from Clinton this week, but he will speak at one point during the DNC this week to address the scandal.
