Sanders could ask Harry Reid for removal of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as DNC chair: report

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may seek the removal of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) as the head of the Democratic National Committee this week in a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Yahoo News reported, citing aides who are helping set up the meeting.

“We’ve been in listening mode for the most part,” the aide said. “[Reid is] going to be hearing what Bernie’s ideas are for bringing the party together and hoping he comes with some ideas.”

On Tuesday, the Vermont legislator said he would continue to campaign for the party’s presidential nomination despite losing primaries in California, New Jersey, and South Dakota to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sanders will reportedly meet with Reid on Thursday, the same day he is expected to meet with President Barack Obama, amid calls for him to end his campaign.

Tensions between Sanders and Wasserman Schultz rose last month, when he not only criticized her following a clash at the party’s Nevada convention, but endorsed Tim Canova, who is challenging her for her congressional seat.

Whereas the Founders conceived America as a haven of refuge for people fleeing from religious and political persecution, and Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison all emphasized that the Nation gained as it attracted new people in search of freedom and livelihood for their families;

Trump hit with a brutal and hilarious backlash for hypocritically whining about Dem congresswomen using swear words

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again took to Twitter to rant about the "Squad" of Democratic congresswomen of color who he previously suggested should leave the country. This time, he complained, among other things, that they use obscene language:

.....shouting of the F...word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!
