Posted on 11/09/2017 6:36:34 AM PST by Kaslin
After revealing explosive details about the DNC and Hillary Clinton in her forthcoming book Hacks, the media have sought to discredit Donna Brazile over the fact that she shared a debate question with Hillary Clinton.
Fox Newss Tucker Carlson wanted to know more about the Wikileaks revelation from Brazileto hear her side of the storybut the former acting DNC chair did nothing but deflect and defend her actions, which the Fox News host repeatedly challenged.
Theyve come after you and said, look, its a little much for you to criticize the DNC for colluding with the Hillary campaign when you conceded that you leaked questions to the Hillary campaign during a CNN town hallbefore a CNN town hall, Carson said. My question when Im reading this is, did no one at CNN know that happened? Did they really learn for the first time when they read your book? How could they not have known that?
Brazile first tried to deflect, simply plugging her book.
Laughing, Tucker interrupted: Hold on now, slow down, there was a question there, did nobody at CNN know that you did that? You apparently got them from
Oh, no Tucker, you cannot put words in my mouth. I got on some lipstick from Fox, but that has not forced me to not stand my ground, Brazile responded.
No but its not your ground, Im asking about CNN, where you then worked, he said. They are mad at you, obviously. Did they know that you leaked these questions, really simple question?
You know, Tucker, I said last year Brazile started to answer.
Sounds like you did, Tucker interjected.
No, Tucker, dont try to put words in my mouth. I said last year that CNN never provided us with any questions. CNN never gave us anything in advance. But what I did say, what I have said in the past, and what I say in this book is that I, as an officer of the DNC and I know Wikileaks gave everybody you know, certain questions and certain emails, but as an officer of the DNC, I sought to expand the number of debates, and I wanted to make sure that we had diverse voices, and we covered issues that had not been discussed in previous debates, and what I did What I sought to do, Tucker, was to ensure that we had these issues on the table, and I wanted to make sure our candidates, I didnt want them blindsided. Thats what I admitted to. Look, what Wikileaks put out
Tucker couldnt stop laughing at that response.
Thats the greatest spin Ive ever heard, I didnt want them blindsided. That is so good you should do this for a living. That is hilarious, he said.
The “Black Buffalo” has spoken! But she didn’t say much of anything. Tucker should ask for his “appearance money” back.
Of all the things Tucker could have talked about and he picked that little bit of political malfeasance?...................
Sorry I turned it off. I hate this witch. Looks like she got her butt beat.
Then what on earth are you doing in the Party of Slavery, Jim Crow, and the Ku Klux Klan?????
WAKE UP, DONNA! Join the Anti-SlaveryParty, also known as the Republican Party. There you can indulge your enthusiasm for truth and honesty (however, no more feeding of questions to your favorite candidate in a debate).
Jump on the Trump Train, Donna.
..Tucker got played. He let her get away with taking over the interview to sell a book. Soft ball questions that never got close to the quotes concerning Hillary stealing the nomination. Carlson is being torched on Twitter...
“But she didnt say much of anything.”
You got to admit, she’s slick as Bubba with her retorts. She got to promote her book, while still embracing the Hillary machine, even though in her book she dissed it.
She took a page (literally) right out of Trump’s book “Art of the Deal”: Make a big splash, create a sensation, get the media attention, then walk it back.
“I watched that interview and afterwards, I turned to my wife and asked “what in the hell did we just watch?”. It was bizarre.”
Remember her (Brazile’s) choice for who she worked. That in itself speaks volumes about her values. I didn’t watch, but I’ve seen Ole Brazile before and she is “Bizarre Brazile”. Hey, I think we just made up a Trump “Stink” name for her. LOL!
Tucker never laid a glove on her.
They seemed liked old buddies.
And they are.
At the same time, she knows this scorched-earth approach means she'll never be asked back on MSNBC. However...given Fox's recent centrist movement, she may now have some fans (and a seven-figure salary) if she went to Fox a-la Juan.
True. But I can’t see many of Tucker’s audience buying her book. The interview was self serving. She wants to be politically relevant again.
Yes, I thought the same thing.
She may be the replacement for Bumbling Bob Beckel...............
“I turned to my wife and asked “what in the hell did we just watch?”........
If you had called me BEFORE watching, I could have advised that you would see and hear NOTHING that might give Brazile credit or authentication. She is a “hack” herself, one that blew the whistle on the DNC, probably has been threatened to back off or else, doing all the damage control she can muster, just to stay alive.
I agree. No way I would call what happened there an interview. Nothing but useless babble.....Tucker should be embarrassed.
Then I am glad I turned it off. She is a lying cheat like most DemocRats.
