Former Democratic operative Donna Brazile’s new book has hit the headlines and reignited rumors of how the 2016 Democratic nomination was rigged against Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
According to Brazile’s book, Hillary Clinton cut a deal to take over the party in exchange for covering debts run up under President Barack Obama.
Brazile also revealed that she considered replacing Clinton with former Vice President Joe Biden after she collapsed at a campaign event.
“I had to put it on the table, George,” said Brazile in an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” “because I was under tremendous pressure after Secretary Clinton fainted to have a ‘Plan B.’ I didn’t want a Plan B. Plan A was great for me. I supported Hillary and I wanted her to win, but we were under pressure.”
Conservatives have reacted with glee to this news. Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson has used the information to bash Obama.
“It’s not surprising Obama left the Democrat party in bad financial shape,” said Jackson on his radio show. “Black people just can’t handle money.”
Peterson often acts as a mouthpiece for white racism. In the past, he said black people who didn’t escape Hurricane Katrina, were “immoral” and “lazy.” However, according to Mediaite another black conservative used the revelations from Brazile’s book to make racist comments about Obama.
“Sad part about that is Barack Obama was supposed to be a rock star,” said Kevin Jackson, a guest host on “FOX & Friends.” “Here is this guy, sadly to say, the black man leaves them with no money.”
According to Mediaite, Jackson also has a history of making anti-black comments.
“Back in April, Jackson said a black shooter who had killed white men was the ‘legacy of Obama.’ During a Hannity appearance in 2015, he called activist DeRay McKesson a ‘race pimp.’ This was shortly after he claimed Al Sharpton was tweeting about the weather because there were ‘no riots,’” said Mediaite.
