Is Chris the new Debbie? Is the Democratic National Committee (DNC) about to screw Bernie Sanders again?
As you may remember, in 2016, Hillary Clinton partisan Debbie Wasserman Schultz ran the DNC, and fixed things so Sanders, even with his 23 primary wins, never had a chance to win the party’s presidential nomination (how’d that work out, Debbie?)
And now we have this, excerpted from Daniel Marans’ article for huffpost.com:
The Democratic National Committee’s new finance chair, Chris Korge, affirmed his commitment to neutrality in the presidential primary in response to scrutiny of past comments criticizing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and a donation to the campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
At issue are comments Korge has made about Sanders prior to accepting the job at the DNC. He retweeted a message in December calling Sanders “dangerous to the future of the Democratic Party.”
Is it just me, or does this look like another version of that hit political show, “Bye Bye Bernie”?
Not that Kamala Harris has much of a chance either, though; the identity politics-driven Democrat Party, at least as of now, seems to have a very strong lean towards its quintessential old White man candidate, Joe Biden.
But it is very,very early and things can change in a hurry. So the other old White man, Bernie Sanders, who is second to Biden in current polls, certainly has reason for concern.
Meanwhile, on the Republican side, President Trump is busy running the country, and dreaming up silly nicknames for his potential opponents.
Will this be an interesting election cycle, or what?
