Earlier today, the Washington Post reported that former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile’s new memoir included her claim that following 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s highly publicized fainting spell weeks before the election, she considered replacing Clinton with then-VP Joe Biden.
With this bombshell excerpt coming on the heels of her previous explosive allegation that Clinton “rigged” the nomination process against Bernie Sanders — an accusation that has come under scrutiny after the memo of the DNC/Hillary deal surfaced — it was a given that there would be quite a reaction.
And it would appear that many folks online weren’t buying what Brazile was selling.
So to sum up, Donna Brazile was left powerless by Clinton, but also thought she alone had the power to kick Clinton off the ticket. Got it.
