Donna Brazile Addresses Skeptics in Fox News Debut: The ‘Fox Family’ Has Same Concerns as Many Dems

Former DNC chair Donna Brazile made her debut as a Fox News contributor this afternoon with Dana Perino, explaining why she decided to take the position.

Following the mixed reactions to the move, Brazile said, “I’ve been on and off Fox the last 15 years, but this is an opportunity to reach across the aisle, to reach even within my own political party and to independents and others who might want to hear what’s happening within the Democratic Party.”

“I want to be able as a Democrat and a progressive and a liberal to talk to the Fox family, because they’re Americans and they care about many of the the same issues and concerns that I have,” she added.

Perino noted how Brazile’s been friendly with her and others on the network like Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson.

Brazile said it’s a “critical period in the country” right now and it’s important for people to be listening to each other instead of “yelling at each other or sending nasty tweets.”
