Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile lost her job as an analyst for one cable network after it was revealed that she leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Now it looks as though she is trying to lose another.
Brazile, who was signed as a contributor to Fox News in March of 2019, became testy yesterday after “America’s Newsroom” hosts Sandra Smith and Ed Henry played a clip in which RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel opined that the Democratic presidential race was “leading towards a brokered convention, which will be rigged against Bernie if those superdelegates have their way on that second vote.”
Brazile vented her spleen. Via The Hill:
First of all, I want to talk to my Republicans [sic]. Stay the hell out of our race! Stay the hell out of our race! I get sick and tired, Ed and Sandra, of Republicans telling me and my colleagues about our process. First of all, they don’t have a process. They are canceling primaries. They have winner-take-all. They don’t have the kind of democracy that we see on the Democratic side. And for people to use Russian talking points to sow division among Americans, that is stupid. So Ronna, go to hell! This is not about — No, go to hell! I’m tired of it!
McDaniel reacted on Twitter:
It’s ok, @donnabrazile.
I’d be having a bad day too if my party was still hopelessly divided.
Talk of a brokered convention and the DNC trying to stop Bernie obviously hit a little close to home.

Later in the day, Brazile appeared on Fox again, this time on “Special Report with Bret Baier,” where she was asked about her earlier tantrum. Her response? “I’m a forgiving kind of person.”
It was unclear who she believed was seeking her forgiveness or for what.
During the remainder of the time she was on the set, she got into a minor dustup with guest commentator Katie Pavlich, who stood her ground.
