Seems the DNC is further imploding on itself. Grab your popcorn, settle in, and watch this “UNITY!” happen in all it’s glory.
After being discovered to have rigged the Democratic presidential candidate race against Bernie, and in favor of Hillary Clinton through over 19,000 leaked emails, Schutlz stepped down as the DNC chair. But while the DNC said “leave it,” Clinton pulled up quick to retrieve it. Now Schultz is one of Clinton’s chief campaign staffers, and Democrats are none too happy about it.
What has followed as a result is nothing short of bad for the Clinton campaign, but hilarious for the rest of us.
Schultz can’t seem to take a stage now without being booed off of it. Case in point, her own state of Philadelphia got rowdy, forcing the event organizer to interrupt the speech to try to calm the crowd. Needless to say, it didn’t work. The people that were there weren’t in the mood for unity.
As ABC News reported:
Outgoing Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was booed and jeered at a pre-convention delegation breakfast this morning in Philadelphia, a day after the Democratic National Committee chair announced she would resign from the post following the leak of embarrassing party emails.
Amid ugly scenes, an event organizer repeatedly tried to quiet the crowd, but the boos continued as Wasserman Schultz began speaking.
“Shame on you!” screamed some.
“You rigged the election!” was another repeated refrain.
Many of the vocal protesters were seen wearing shirts supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders.
The fun continued just this morning as Schultz, acting as Hillary’s surrogate, went to her own delegation breakfast where she was again, thoroughly booed and jeered.

At this rate, Clinton has got to know that Schultz is nothing short of toxic, and bringing her on board is only hurting her campaign even more. Either Clinton will have to release Schultz, or start pulling an Obama and making sure that the people invited to these gatherings are screened beforehand.
Making sure they’re loyal supporters is the only way to fix the optics. It’s a dirty trick that makes it seem like you’re more supported than you are, but the DNC and Clinton are no strangers to that now, are they?
