At this point, Bernie’s only viable path to the nomination seems to be the FBI indicting Hillary Clinton. But Bernie Sanders supporters know that while the presidency is all but out of reach they can still wield power over the DNC as long as Bernie stays in the race. Sanders supporters are mobilizing to use that power to take out the Democratic Party National Chairwoman.
From The Hill:
Sanders supporters blame Wasserman Schultz for what they see as system rigged against their candidate and say he is being cheated by contests closed to independents and unfair weight to superdelegates.
“I think I’m honestly starting to hate @DWStweets more than @realDonaldTrump,” one Sanders supporter tweeted on Thursday, with the hashtag #FeelTheBern.
Some media talking heads are also demanding she step down:
Liberal commentator Van Jones said this week on CNN that he’d prefer Reince Priebus, Republican National Committee chairman, over Wasserman Schultz after a “leadership failure” for Democrats.
“Debbie, who should be the umpire, who should be the marriage counselor, is coming in harder for Hillary Clinton than she is for herself. That is malpractice,” Jones told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Wednesday.
And Mika Brzezinski, the co-host on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” said the DNC chair should “step down,” condemning the party’s treatment of Sanders since he entered the race.
“This has been very poorly handled from the start. It has been unfair, and they haven’t taken him seriously, and it starts, quite frankly, with the person we just heard speaking. It just does. You know that,” Brzezinski said about Wasserman Schultz.
Hillary’s coronation party isn’t going along as planned! As the socialist wing of the Democratic Party continues its revolution, Wasserman Schultz is next in line to “feel the bern.”
