WikiLeaks: Donna Brazile Shreds Obama Economy
Acting DNC chair says 'people are more in despair about how things are'
In an email to Hillary Clinton campaign Chair John Podesta from February 2016, released Friday by WikiLeaks, now-acting chair of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile gave a frank and honest assessment of the Obama economy — and it wasn’t good.
“I think people are more in despair about how things are — yes new jobs but they are low wage jobs,” she admits. “HOUSING is a huge issue. Most people pay half of what they make to rent,” she continued.
Such honesty from such a vocal and public cheerleader for the Obama administration is sure to embarrass the White House, and contradicts the official Democratic Party line that Obama is some sort of economy-saving superhero.
Brazile's comments also underscore the extent to which Democrats are perfectly happy to lie to the public in furtherance of their toxic, divisive agenda.
"Under President Obama, the economy has experienced a record 70 straight months of private-sector job growth. Over 14 million jobs!" Brazile tweeted almost exactly one month before she sent her email to Podesta.
The leaked email may also leave some Clinton supporters wonder why the Democratic presidential nominee hasn't taken a more aggressive stance on the many shortcomings of Obama's economic record.
