BRAZILE: Felt Like ‘Slave;’ Wanted to Replace Hillary with Biden

(AFP) The former Democratic Party chief seriously considered replacing Hillary Clinton with then US vice president Joe Biden as the party’s White House candidate after Clinton fell ill at a public event, according to excerpts from a new memoir published by Saturday.

Donna Brazile also wrote that Clinton’s campaign was badly mismanaged, “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.” She likened the campaign’s New York headquarters to a hospital ward where “someone had died.”

The Washington Post published the searing details after obtaining an advance copy of Brazile’s book, which will be released Tuesday.

Brazile, 57, is a longtime Democratic strategist who served as the Democratic National Committee’s interim chairwoman during key months of last year’s presidential campaign.

Explosive revelations from Brazile earlier in the week, published by Politico, said Clinton’s team essentially took over day-to-day operations of the DNC, in essence rigging the system against Senator Bernie Sanders, who was challenging Clinton for the party’s nomination.

Her allegations have convulsed the party as it struggles to rebuild, and whipped up accusations of cheating from President Donald Trump.

Brazile wrote that there were secret deliberations to use her power as party chief and begin the process of removing Clinton and runningmate Senator Tim Kaine from the ticket, and replacing them with vice president Joe Biden and Senator Cory Booker.

Brazile thought they held the most appeal to working class voters and could defeat Trump.

This was in the aftermath of Clinton’s collapse at a September 11 memorial event in New York that was captured on amateur video that quickly went viral.

But Brazile never carried out the plan.

“I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them,” she wrote.

As for Clinton’s campaign, it was poorly run and overconfident, taking minority votes for granted and putting out “stiff” and “stupid” messages, Brazile said.

She charged that the DNC was sidelined during the campaign, with Clinton’s team controlling party finances and strategy.

Brazile wrote of fights with Clinton’s top lieutenants, including one conference call where she complained of being treated like a “slave.”

“I’m not Patsey the slave,” Brazile, who is black, recalled saying. “Y’all keep whipping me and whipping me and you never give me any money or any way to do my damn job. I am not going to be your whipping girl!”

Clinton has not responded to Brazile’s accusations.

    The Dems are all trying to get their stories out before they crash and burn. Turning on each other like vipers. Let the show begin!

    • slk5

      i see donna is still in full lying mode!!!

      • Robert A Oziomek

        You wish.

        • slk5

          she lies without wishing!!!

  • Rolpho Signetti

    Imagine… a Black woman being treated as a slave by a rich Southern White Woman!

    Who would have thought!!!!

    • HDCycle

      Hillary is from Chicago. Nothing southern about her.

      • Jane Faatz Mitchell

        She lived in Arkansas for much of her adult life and married a southerner! I think the image written by Rolpho makes sense~!

        • parkslopedog

          She wasn’t there that long. She only went to Ark because she couldn’t make it in Wash DC and couldn’t pass the bar there. She figured she’d bamboozle the country hicks in Ark and be the big fish in the small pond. She put on the Southern belle look and even had a baby to play the part of the gov’s wife. All the time she was scheming to push Bill into the WH and herself along with him.

          • Gregg Parker

            Guns for drugs in Mena AK gave Bill the rapist the whote house. He was told then he would get the prize if he could keep the lid on the operations there. 60 plus bodies later he was inaugurated. She played a part but so did the CIA under George the traitor Bush…

      • DylanFan51 .

        She came from the North, thank God! We don’t want her!

      • usmcltc

        Do you HAVE to be from the south to be a “red neck”?

      • Teresa Barrett

        Her family was well off and republican. Hillary was ripe for socialism a la Saul Ailinsky when she went to college. She has done virtually nothing worthwhile in her entire life. Shes a horrible person with no redeeming social value. Her career has been one failure or corruption after another. Her treasonous actions should put her in prison for life!

        • HDCycle

          I agree, but shes not a Southerner which was my point.

    • Rolpho Signetti

      Thank you for the history lesson! But like others have stated, she married a Hillbilly coke dealer from Arkansas. That is where she.learned her drug dealer tactics. Where she learn normal laws do not apply to her. Just follow the death trail… Donna watch your back!

      • Rolpho Signetti

        Also, she was not born, she is a spawn of HE LL!

        • Teresa Barrett

          And sleeps hanging upside down, with her wings wrapped around her. In a cave, no less!

      • An American

        Anyone that goes against the Clintons have to beware of Hillary’s “Body Bags”!!!!!

    • Ted Cummins

      Ole Miss is called Oks Miss for just that reason.
      I pray my daughter gets to go there.

      Hotty Toddy!

  • bontai Joe

    I am enjoying watching this feeding frenzy so very much. I can’t wait until they start eating their young.

    • Gregg Parker

      Instead of eating ours…

    • Teresa Barrett

      I wonder if Hillary has found a way to blame Chelsea for her loss, speaking of eating their young. After all, Chelsea is dumb as a stump, so she could be blamed and would be too stupid to recognize it!

  • YUBSoJJ

    C’mon Donna, I was never a slave and neither were you.
    Time to go back to the box of metaphors and pick out a new euphemism for “one who is dripping in victimization”.
    The Race Card can only be played by Democrats in good standing…

  • buck swanson

    dumbcrats right on schedule to implode—-good going—keep it up.

    • omni

      meanwhile the GOP is kissing their butt! Time to get rid of the RInOs

      • An American

        Its time to rid the swamp of all the the politicians who have been in office more then 8 years, they want everything to continue their way- the Corrupt & Evil way. I don’t believe they are working for the American people, just themselves. Our Presidents are in office for the most 8 years, so why should these other people stay longer?

        • omni

          At this point I vote for NO incumbents!

      • Robert A Oziomek

        Start with McCain the supposed war hero.

  • WVF

    These low-life democrats are essentially all the same–delusional anti-Americans.

    • John Rountree

      They are such blatant liars

      • WVF

        I agree, and that’s really being generous.

    • slk5

      jfk was last known democrat, they are mostly liberal socialists now!!!

      • WVF

        I agree, the left is completely out to lunch with their free socialistic lunches which they buy with other peoples money.

  • Ron Sheppard

    Yhe Bankrupt DNC made the deal with Clinton . They could have refused it . Brazile was part of it. She could have left anytime. She danced with the devil. Now she wants us to buy her book. I don’t dance with the devil

  • Irredeemably Deplorable

    DB is nothing but an opportunist who cares so little about this country she was willing to allow corrupt Clintons to enter the White House again without saying a word about what she knew regarding such utter corruption in her party.

    Now she can make a few dollars and gain favor by telling on Clintons. Yeah, a real patriot.

    • Ted Cummins

      Was thinking the same thing.
      After the fact to bank off exposing what most knew.
      Obama should have been the head of the DNC by virtue of being the president.
      What happened there.
      How did the Clintons take over the DNC?

      All those suckers that actually believed in the Clintons.
      Truth is coming out now.

      And you Bernie supporters? Y’all must feel like a real sucker.
      But it’s all cool, back on the DNC Plantation till they need your vote again.
      I’ll be savoring the show over the next few years.
      This is going to Pkwy out way after the next Presidential campaign.
      Best thing for the DNC, the Clintons leave America or they take one for the team and just expire.
      Hillary is going to jail.

    of course

    • An American

      The only people who are slaves are the people who stay under the Democrats thump because they know they will support them for their Fraud Votes. You are are a Slave if thats who you want to be.

  • That’s Mr. Timesetter to you

    We all have a choice. If you treat me like crap, I can choose to take it and feel horrible about myself and how I allow someone to treat me the way they do, or I can keep my dignity and integrity intact and walk away…. she made her choice and was complicit in the deception. I’ll wait for the free tv movie.

  • 1loyalamerican74

    Why did Brazile say in the book that Hillary did not affect the Dem Primary. She wanted to replace her with Biden. She needs to know about her own lies.

  • Wayen Franzen

    What a great show the Dems are putting on- a real circular firing squad. Glad to see them carving up each other, and glad the country was saved from going Socialist/ communist.

  • laulau

    How does she know how a slave feels?

  • karmicpete

    HRC is an arrogant, corrupt, nasty witch who was barely present as a Senator and a tragically failed SOS, with millions displaced or dead and Europe placed on the road to ruin, as she aimlessly traveled the world stuffing her face and pocket. Just a contemptible, greedy hag with absolutely zero accomplishments and nothing to commend her as a manager or leader. Her former boss is much worse.

  • parkslopedog

    Cory Booker? Would that be Obama Lite?
    DB found out that Democrats were masters of the plantation after all.

    • bontai Joe

      Obama lite? Nooooo Cory Booker would be a disaster of mega proportions. I am amazed he isn’t in a jail somewhere yet.

      • parkslopedog

        Agree. I was being a “racist” making a reference to Cory’s lighter complexion.

  • Reflect

    Helleriy and crew would do anything to win, including denying that its corruption was true. She used the Russians, not only to gain money, but to try to destroy president Trump it back fired, and now the Democrats are trying to pin the Russian deal on Trump…The only one who gained was Helleriy, and the millions she got for the Uranium deal. The democrats still believe in slavery, they don’t really care who is the slave, as long as they are the master. or the one in control….

  • Gregg Parker

    She says she was proud of Clinton and didn’t want to disappoint all the women who would vote for her… so much for her clarity of right and wrong. She wanted the head of the Clinton criminal enterprise which was currently strong arming the DNC and was an eye witness to her insane bursts of rage yet she wanted to foist this a hole on all Americans instead of pulling the plug… speaks volumes.

    Breaking news, fit to print, control guns, shut down gun dealers, and give us liberty
    SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas (AP) — A man dressed in black tactical-style gear and armed with an assault rifle opened fire inside a church in a small South Texas community on Sunday, killing 26 people and wounding about 20 others in what the governor called the deadliest mass shooting in the state’s history. The dead ranged in age from 5 to 72 years old.

    Authorities didn’t identify the attacker during a news conference Sunday night, but two other officials — one a U.S. official and one in law enforcement — identified him as Devin Kelley. They spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the investigation.

    The U.S. official said Kelley lived in a San Antonio suburb and didn’t appear to be linked to organized terrorist groups. Investigators were looking at social media posts Kelley made in the days before Sunday’s attack, including one that appeared to show an AR-15 semiautomatic weapon.

    Kelley received a bad-conduct discharge from the Air Force for allegedly assaulting his spouse and child, and was sentenced to 12 months’ confinement after a 2012 court-martial. Kelley served in Logistics Readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 until his discharge, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said.

    At the news conference, the attacker was described only as a white man in his 20s who was wearing black tactical gear and a ballistic vest when he pulled into a gas station across from the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio, around 11:20 a.m.

    • parkslopedog

      The existing gun control laws in place failed to work as the Pentagon had not released Kelley’s record to background checking agencies. So much for more gun laws.

  • Miss Mellie

    I think Brazille is a bit ignorant as she called herself “Patsy.” I think she was referring to “Prissy,” the nit-witted slave in “Gone With the Wind.” The nation of Israel was enslaved in Egypt for 400 years, but you never hear them hold pity parties and victim-outrages like the Africans.

  • eganstew3

    When Donna talks about being a slave, that is what the Democrat have done to people for years. My I suggest you watch the movie “Hillary’s America” by D’Souza. He is very clear how the Democrat play with the peoples mind so they become slaves to all the hand outs they get if they vote for them. Then those in power deny, deny, deny and injustice.

  • Robert A Oziomek

    Better get your body armor on. You know what happens when you offend Clinton royalty.

  • You’ve got to love that another Democrat actually came forth with the truth about so many of hillary’s misdeeds. I applaud her for it.

  • Ross

    Omni,
    ONE good thing can be said about that… is unlikely he will live to Election Day to replace TheDonald!!

      I do not wish death on people-but his exit from politics(by any means) will be a plus for America.
