Clinton Ally: No One Cares if the DNC Rigged Primaries

This is the kind of contempt for democracy and the rule of law that we need more of.

Here's Terry McAuliffe, the close Clinton ally who once headed the DNC, explaining that absolutely no one cares if the DNC rigged the primaries.

KATY TUR, MSNBC: I want to ask you about Donna Brazile and the allegations that are coming out in her new book. There's a lot of people on both sides of the issue here saying that the DNC is completely rigged. There are other saying it's not rigged at all, this is completely just the way politics works and people are making too a big deal over it. The fact of the matter is it's in the news, it's casting a negative spotlight on the Democratic party. I mean, you have to have some concern about how that's going to play out in Virginia. Correct? 

GOV. TERRY McAULIFFE (D-VA), FORMER DNC CHAIRMAN: Nobody cares.

TUR: Nobody cares? Let's listen to Donna Brazile. One more time on This Week.

McAULIFFE: Nobody cares what's Donna Brazile has said in a book. Nobody. 

TUR: Governor, one second. Let's listen to Donna Brazile. 

DONNA BRAZILE: For those who are telling me to shut up, they told Hillary that a couple months ago, you know what I tell them? Go to hell. I'm going to tell my story.

TUR: You don't think anybody cares about her story?

McAULIFFE: Nobody cares. You know what they care about? They care about beating Donald Trump tomorrow, they care about beating Ed Gillespie. Not one person in Virginia who is looking for a job, wants to get healthcare, making sure their kids get a quality education. I mean I know everybody in Washington in the little bubble loves to talk about this stuff. I did not get asked. I met thousands of people this weekend canvassing, not one single person asked me. They want a job, they want education. Not someone who wrote a book.

And now it's time to move on.

Count on a Clinton ally to invoke the same old Clinton defense. No one cares whether Bill had sex with that woman, gave Osama bin Laden a pass, sexually assaulted women or whether his wife rigged the primaries. That's Washington bubble stuff. Most people just care about jobs and education. And the important stuff, like bringing in more illegal immigrants and Planned Parenthood. 

Also nobody wants to talk about bankrupt electric car companies, Chinese donors or office buildings. They want free stuff from the government. And they don't care about who is robbing the country blind. That's bubble stuff.

Good Democrats don't care about ethics or having a voice. Just about beating Trump. Go team!
