“Nobody cares about what Donna Brazile has said in a book”
Some Democrats are very angry about the allegations in Donna Brazile’s new book. One of them is Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. He made his feelings well known yesterday on MSNBC.

Virginia Gov. (and Longtime Clinton Pal) Terry McAuliffe Rips Brazile Book: ‘Nobody Cares’
Hillary Clinton has not yet commented about the claims of former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile, who is alleging in her new book that the 2016 Democratic primary was “rigged” in the former Secretary of State’s favor. But the comments of Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) might offer a hint about what Clinton-world thinks about Brazile’s set-to-be-released tome.
Appearing on MSNBC with Katy Tur, McAuliffe — himself a former DNC chair — didn’t mince words when asked about Brazile’s claims.
“Nobody cares about what Donna Brazile has said in a book,” McAuliffe said. “Nobody.”
The outgoing Virginia Governor was also extremely confident about the election to decide his successor, which is scheduled for Tuesday. Even though most observers see the race tightening, McAuliffe projected a great deal of confidence that Democratic candidate Ralph Northam will prevail over Republican challenger Ed Gillespie.

By Democrat standards, wasn’t that sort of sexist and racist of the governor?
Of course, what McAuliffe is really angry about is the realization that this situation could affect the Virginia governor’s race. Conor Beck reports at the Washington Free Beacon:
McAuliffe on DNC Controversy: Brazile’s ‘Very Bad Timing’ Is ‘Regrettable’
Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe (Va.) decried the timing of former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile revealing how Hillary Clinton used the DNC to tilt the 2016 presidential primary.
McAuliffe appeared on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” Friday to promote Democratic gubernatorial nominee Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam and his own work as governor of Virginia. But at the end of the interview, host Chuck Todd pivoted toward controversy at the DNC, which Brazile brought to light in an article Thursday.
“You’re a former DNC chair, I got to ask you—and you’re obviously very close friends to the Clintons. I know where you stand from the primary,” Todd said.
“The allegation Donna Brazile made that the DNC was basically in the tank in some form or another—and we can discuss how much—for Hillary Clinton throughout the primary season: fair charge?” Todd asked…
“I don’t know the specifics of the actual agreement,” McAuliffe said. “It’s regrettable that Donna (Brazile) thought this was the time that she should come out with this complaint. I mean, God love the Democratic Party. But we need—”
“This pretty bad timing for Tuesday?” Todd asked.
“Very bad timing. And you know, just regrettable,” McAuliffe said.
McAuliffe seems heavily invested in the outcome of this particular election. Perhaps he thinks a Democrat loss here would affect his ability to run for president in 2020.
