Former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile has been on a rampage lately, going after the Clinton team hard. In her new book to be released tomorrow, Brazile highlights how the campaign was divided based on race, gender, and age. But that’s not all…
The book is highly critical of Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook, saying, “He had the habit of nodding when you are talking, leaving you with the impression that he has listened to you, but then never seeming to follow up on what you thought you agreed on.”
The book also says all of Mook’s top aides were men: “The young men that surrounded Robby Mook ― and they were all men in his inner circle ― had mastered a cool and removed style of politics.”
Recalling what she describes as a tension-filled conference call with Mook and his team of top aides about hiring a temporary CEO for the party, Brazile says, “I have worked with men all my life in politics and I can sense when they get to this part about not being able to deal with a woman. This is not a racial thing. This was a gender thing.”
Brazile says that she interjected at one point in the conference call and said, “You know, this does not feel like a negotiation to me. This feels like power and control. Gentlemen, let’s just put our dicks out on the table and see who’s got the bigger one, because I know mine is bigger than all of yours.” A former Clinton aide confirmed Brazile made the comment…
From Washington Post:
In it, Brazile reveals how fissures of race, gender and age tore at the heart of the operation — even as Clinton was campaigning on a message of inclusiveness and trying to assemble a rainbow coalition under the banner of “Stronger Together.”

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile dismissed critics of her scathing new 2016 campaign memoir.
In an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Brazile brushed off Democrats telling her that she was reopening wounds of the 2016 Democratic primary, saying that if she had waited to release her book, Democrats would accuse her of impacting the 2018 midterm elections.
A longtime Democratic operative, Brazile was tapped to lead the embattled DNC after former chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned in July after leaked internal emails that showed key members of her organization speaking critically of Sen. Bernie Sanders in his primary fight against Hillary Clinton.
