Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo on Wednesday tried to grill Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez about Donna Brazile’s accusations that the DNC was unfavorably weighted toward Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Democratic primary — but he couldn’t help talking about the party’s smashing electoral victories in Virginia and New Jersey.
In particular, Bartiromo attacked Perez for not talking with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) after Brazile claimed that the Clinton campaign had undue influence over the DNC before the 2016 Democratic primary even started.
Perez, however, refused to take the bait.
“Maria, we are focused on winning elections, focused on the future here,” he said.
“Right, unfortunately Bernie Sanders’s hopes were dashed because it was rigged,” Bartiromo interrupted.
Perez pointed out that, whatever problems the DNC had with its ties to the Clinton campaign, Hillary Clinton still won the Democratic nomination fairly by getting 4 million more votes than Sanders did.
“But now we know it was rigged!” she shouted back.
“Maria, I understand that, when the Democrats win, as they did last night, that you’d like focus on other things,” Perez retorted.
Later in the interview, Bartiromo bashed the DNC for not giving over its computers to the FBI in the wake of the Russian hacks — and implied that there was some damaging information on those computers “that you didn’t want anyone to see.”
“Maria, you are in a fictional wonderland right now,” Perez replied, with a grin on his face.

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report
President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.
A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.
“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
New biographer claims she knows how Kim Jong Un will die
A new biography about Kim Jong Un by Anna Fifield is uncovering many of the unique moments in the childhood of the North Korean dictator. But one piece that isn't included in the book is her prediction for how the leader will die.
In a CNN interview with Brian Todd, Fifield explained that Kim's chain-smoking, drinking and consumption of rich and fatty foods would likely be his undoing. She doesn't anticipate he'll ever have a coup d'etat, but he could probably have a heart attack.
Other shocking observations she made include that Kim's parents had to bring in children so that he would have someone to play with him, effectively meaning his "friends" were paid for.
Black Republican: Cops ‘treat their dogs better than they treat us’
Black Republican political commentator Shermichael Singleton was part of a panel discussing the Phoenix police department that violently arrested the parents of a little girl who walked out of a dollar store with a doll.
The incident occurred months ago, but only now the footage is being released by police, revealing the way the family was treated.
Democratic strategist Joel Payne seemed appalled at the police in the video and the mark that likely left on the children who experienced it.
"I think about that young man talking about his child, and this is their first interaction with police," he said, noting Father's Day. "And that is the life, that's the life lesson that that child is being taught is that in that moment, that police officer was trying to hurt her and to hurt her parents. That's unacceptable."
