You really can’t make this stuff up.
In a shocking slap in the face to Bernie Sanders supporters, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has reportedly hired disgraced DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Wasserman Schultz, whose leaked emails showed that the Democratic National Committee worked to scuttle the Sanders campaign while ensuring a Clinton primary victory, will now serve as “Honorary Chair” for the national Hillary Presidential campaign.
Here is the full text of the Clinton Campaign’s statement:
“I want to thank my longtime friend Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her leadership of the Democratic National Committee over the past five years. I am grateful to Debbie for getting the Democratic Party to this year’s historic convention in Philadelphia, and I know that this week’s events will be a success thanks to her hard work and leadership. There’s simply no one better at taking the fight to the Republicans than Debbie–which is why I am glad that she has agreed to serve as honorary chair of my campaign’s 50-state program to gain ground and elect Democrats in every part of the country, and will continue to serve as a surrogate for my campaign nationally, in Florida, and in other key states. I look forward to campaigning with Debbie in Florida and helping her in her re-election bid–because as President, I will need fighters like Debbie in Congress who are ready on day one to get to work for the American people.”
Hillary just gave anti-establishment Sanders supporters the middle finger.
