DNC Chair Tom Perez Goes Off on GOP Over Health Care: ‘They Don’t Give a Sh*t About People!’

Tom Perez – NJWFA Rally – 31 March 2017 from Matthew Hersh on Vimeo.

DNC Chairman Tom Perez spoke at a rally in Newark yesterday and went on the attack against Republicans and President Trump.

In remarks first flagged by The Daily Caller, Perez touted the protests and marches across the country since January 21st, saying that Americans are sending the message that Trump doesn’t “stand for our values” and that he “didn’t win this election.”

He also brought up the recent health care failure and said that rather than calling the bill Trumpcare or Ryancare, it sounded more like “I don’t care.”

Perez added, “Because they don’t give a shit about people!”

Republicans didn’t take the broadside lying down.

“Chairman Perez’s comments are dangerous and undermine our democratic process,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a statement. “Perhaps Mr. Perez needs a lesson on how the Electoral College works but whether he likes it or not, Donald Trump is our president. He should be ashamed of himself for insulting the millions of Americans who don’t share his liberal vision for our country.”
