Former head of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile is finally opening-up about the serious questions surrounding Hillary Clinton’s health, saying the doomed nominee was frequently “under the weather” and urging the White House hopeful to “go get a doctor” before she infamously collapsed in New York City.
The interim DNC boss was speaking with radio host Hugh Hewitt when she was asked to weigh-in on the ongoing mystery surrounding the former Secretary of State’s health issues, adding Clinton should have seen a doctor before appearing at a September 11th memorial event in NYC.
“I was in New York with her, I could tell from her mannerisms just a few minutes before that she was under the weather. She wasn’t feeling good,” said Brazile. “I saw her on Friday night. She’s under the weather. What’s wrong? Tell me what’s wrong. Go get a doctor and make a good analysis.”
“I don’t think they knew at the time that video would go viral, and that video would tell a different story. And as a result of that video going viral, I had to make a very difficult decision,” she added. “I had to confer with people who were calling me about what if, what if. And luckily, we never got to that. But I did have to think through what if she did not recover.”
Brazile made national headlines earlier this year when she admitted the DNC had weighed the possibility of removing Hillary Clinton from the 2016 Democratic ticket over serious concerns about the candidate’s health. Just weeks ago, Clinton reportedly fell down a flight of stairs while visiting the UK, quickly canceling television appearances to promote her recent memoir.
DONNA VS DEBBIE: Brazile TRASHES Debbie Schultz Over OUTRAGEOUS DNC 'Perks'
Donna Brazile’s upcoming memoir continues to rock liberal circles inside the DC beltway, with new excerpts showing the former interim DNC chief trashing Debbie Wasserman Schultz over her lavish “perks” while the Democratic party was flat-out broke.
Brazile unloaded on her predecessor in her new book, “Hacks,” saying Schultz enjoyed outrageous perks while serving as head of the Democratic National Committee, most of which were designed to keep Schultz “fat and happy” as the party suffered tremendous financial losses.
“Debbie had a chief of staff and a body woman. She also had media consultants and a fund-raising consultant. I was free to hire my own consultants, two or three if I liked, and bring in a new communications team. All of that would go on the DNC payroll,” she writes.
Brazile eventually notified party officials that she would sell-off the business SUV and refused to hire extra consultants, adding “God knows I didn’t need a body woman.”
“This was the way to keep the chair fat and happy: Give her a huge staff and lots of perks and don’t ask her to do anything,” she writes.
BRAZILE VS BEHAR: Watch Donna Brazile SHUT DOWN Joy Behar On LIVE TV
Former Democratic National Committee chief Donna Brazile went head-to-head with The View’s Joy Behar on Tuesday, firing back at the liberal host after she accused the DNC boss of “giving red-meat to Trump” supporters with her new bombshell exposé of Hillary’s troubled campaign.
“You threw a lot of people under the bus. The DNC is mad at you, Robby Mook is mad, maybe even Hillary might be mad,” said Behar. “Here’s the question I have for you: Why the timing of this book? Today’s Election Day, why are you giving red-meat to Trump’s side?”
“A lot of people ask me that. I set my launch for my book when I sent in my proposal,” fired-back Brazile. “I thought a year after a Presidential election, that’s when you have a lot of debate and dissent. Everyone is writing books. Mr. Biden’s book is coming out, Mr. Sanders’ book has come out, Mrs. Clinton’s book.”
“I wanted to tell my story about what happened. I wasn’t writing to make someone upset, I was upset. I cried enough for everybody, I apologized enough for everybody,” she added.
