Democrats are angry. They put all their stock into a terrible candidate in 2016 and got crushed.
The party suffered massive losses at every level during Barack Obama's time in the White House, losing 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships – and the presidency.
So it makes sense that the newly-elected chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, would go on a profanity-laced tirade about the party that has been eating their lunch for eight years.
Perez, speaking at a rally hosted by the New Jersey Working Families Alliance, ripped the GOP for trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “Because they don’t give a sh*t about people!” he said to a cheering crowd. “This repeal was a massive tax break for the wealthy.”
The DNC chief said January 21 was the day “the resistance took over,” as he praised protesters. “They marched all over the world and said, 'Donald Trump, you don’t stand for our values… Donald Trump you didn’t win the election,'” Perez shouted.
(Note to readers about "fake news": Trump did win the election, fair and square.)
Perez apparently isn't all that happy with his own party. Last week he asked all staffers to submit resignation letters. Party employees will be interviewed by a review committee to decide who stays.
Which makes it hilarious that he later said in his speech, "We have a bully in Washington in the White House."
Might want to take a look in the mirror, Tom.
