Two of Fox News’ veteran journalists set Donna Brazile straight on Tuesday after the FNC contributor told Republican Party chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to “Go to hell.”
The incident happened during Fox’s “America’s Newsroom” earlier that morning.
Co-host Sandra Smith asked Brazile to respond McDaniel’s prediction that Democrats would likely have a brokered convention this July, “which will be rigged against Bernie [Sanders] if those superdelegates have their way on that second vote.”
“To that you say what Donna?” Smith asked.
Brazile answered, saying that Republicans should, “Stay the hell out of our race.”
“I get sick and tired … of listening to Republicans tell me and the Democrats about our process,” she continued.
“First of all, [Republicans] don’t have a process,” Brazile charged. “They are canceling primaries. They have winner-take-all. They don’t have the kind of democracy that we see on the Democratic side.”
The 60-year-old next honed in on McDaniel.
“For people to use Russian talking points to sow division among Americans, that is stupid,” Brazile said. “So Ronna, go to hell!
“Woah,” Fox News co-host Ed Henry interjected.
Brazile doubled down: “No, go to hell! I’m tired of it!”
During a Super Tuesday election night panel, Fox News political anchor Bret Baier asked Brazile to address her harsh words toward McDaniel.
“I just want to say that your tone has changed a little bit,” Baier said. “You came in here a little bit hot and bothered, and you were spicy today.”
“And you had a little dust-up with Ronna McDaniel. Can you just explain that?” he asked.
“I’m a forgiving kind of person,” Brazile began, which was kind of an odd response, given McDaniel really should be considered the aggrieved party.
“I want to thank Chris Wallace and Brit Hume and Juan Williams. Yes, all three men,” she continued.
“Juan gave me the fist bump. Chris gave me the talk. And Brit reminded me that, you know, sometimes you don’t, you shouldn’t call people out right.”
