Donna Brazile at DNC Forum: ‘I’m Not Gonna Sugarcoat It. We Failed.’

Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile spoke at a DNC Future Forum toady and said rather bluntly, “I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. We failed.”

“We came up short,” Brazile told the audience. “We made some serious mistakes, some strategic errors. We got cocky about our invincible blue wall and then we saw it crumble… We failed under extraordinary circumstances.”

She said that all Americans were targeted by a “murderous dictator who wanted to affect the election” and ended up getting what he wanted.

“They turned our own media into a weapon,” Brazile said. “They hired an army of trolls to spread lies and distract from the real issues.”

You can watch the video of Brazile’s speech above (the relevant part starts at the 5:25 mark).
