In an email to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta from February 2016, released Friday by WikiLeaks, now-acting chair of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile gave a frank and honest assessment of the Obama economy — it wasn’t good.
“I think people are more in despair about how things are—yes new jobs but they are low wage jobs,” she admits. “HOUSING is a huge issue. Most people pay half of what they make to rent,” she continued.
Brazile’s comments also underscore the extent to which Democrats are perfectly happy to lie to the public in furtherance of their toxic, divisive agenda.
“Under President Obama, the economy has experienced a record 70 straight months of private-sector job growth. Over 14 million jobs!” Brazile tweeted almost exactly one month before she sent her email to Podesta.
The leaked email may also leave some Clinton supporters wonder why she hasn’t taken a more aggressive stance on the many shortcomings of Obama’s economic record.
