Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a disgrace to American politics, and she certainly isn’t the kind of person that we want in the Democratic Party. But Hillary Clinton refuses to let her friend lose her election, and she is trying to repay the favors that Wasserman Schultz gave her during the primaries. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

As Bernie Sanders continues to campaign for Tim Canova, who is running a primary race against former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton came out yesterday, and decided that she was going to try to give Debbie Wasserman Schultz a bit of a helping hand since Tim Canova seems to be raising money hand over fists, in his race against Wasserman Schultz. Hillary Clinton headed down to South Florida where she showed up at the campaign headquarters of Wasserman Schultz, and told papers that we absolutely everything possible to make sure that Wasserman Schultz retains her job in the House of Representatives, come November.
Now, here’s the problem with this. Obviously Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign in disgrace from the Democratic National Committee. She’s no longer in charge of anything with that committee. She is however immediately following that resignation, a Clinton Surrogate. Someone who will very likely play a huge role in a Clinton administration. That is not okay. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, according to the eMails that are being released, wanted to rig the system to make sure that Hillary was favored. She did all kinds of things that if the republicans did it, every Democrat in this country would be up in arms, screaming about an investigation for the RNC. There is a huge, huge double standard happening right now, and it’s sickening.
Corruption is corruption. It doesn’t matter if it happens in the Democratic Party, or the Republican Party. When something corrupt happens, when there is a corrupt person in your organization, you call them out, you get rid of them, and you distance yourself from them, forever. Instead Hillary Clinton has doubled down and said, “Look, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is my best friend. I wouldn’t be where I am without Debbie Wasserman Schultz, so by God were going to have to get her elected.” I hope more than anything in the world right now, that Debbie Wasserman Schultz loses her primary, to Tim Canova. That’s not an endorsement necessarily of Tim Canova. I’m just saying, I do not want Debbie Wasserman Schultz to win, because she represents every single thing that is wrong with the Democratic Party.
She represents every piece of the Democratic party that wants to fight against the true progressive movement, and she’s just all around a pretty disgusting person, when you look at she has done both as an elected official and as the Chairwoman of the DNC. Hillary Clinton should be ashamed of herself, for continuing to associate with that level of corruption.
