On this morning’s “Face the Nation,” host John Dickerson interviewed liberals on what they thought of the Democratic Party and let’s just say the responses are brutal.
Democrats “seem to be lost”:
JOHN DICKERSON IN STUDIO: That was Hillary Clinton, speaking out about her loss to President Trump. The liberals in our focus group had some tough talk when it came to the Democrats.
JOHN DICKERSON: Jack, what does the Democratic Party mean to you right now?
JACK: Well, the Democratic Party has—seems to be lost. And the reason they seem to be, to me, they seem to be lost is because they let the Republicans define who they are.
Dems need to “have a backbone”:
JOHN DICKERSON: Connie, if you were giving an instruction manual to the Democratic Party to get their act (LAUGH) together what would you tell them to do?
CONNIE: They have to define who they are. They have to have a backbone about standing up for it and not be bought out by anyone or swayed because they think they might lose their office. They have to be willing to stand for it. If you’re going to say, “I’m standing for this,” then you have to stand for it all the way
WikiLeaks told us that “the Democratic establishment are liars”:
JERRY: I think the Democrats, not only are they out of touch, they have no interest in correcting the situation. They’re not doing any post mortems. They’re writing off, “Well, we don’t own the White House because of Putin or because of WikiLeaks.” What did WikiLeaks tell us, by the way? They– regardless of who was behind it, they confirmed that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment are liars. And that they had their thumb on the scale for– you know, for Hillary Clinton. Well, you know, so what are they basically saying? “If– if we hadn’t been caught lying, we’d be running the country right now.”
Jerry gets it.
