VIDEO: Fox News forced to cut away after former DNC Chair Donna Brazile goes off the rails during interview

Fox News was forced to cut away from a segment Tuesday morning after former Democratic National Committee Chairman Donna Brazile lost it on fellow guest, conservative Fox News commentator Tammy Bruce.

The two were brought in by “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade to discuss the first night of the Republican National Convention, but before long, the conversation devolved into a shouting match, the Wrap reported.

What happened?

Things went south after Bruce began discussing race relations in America and events such as the Black Lives Matter protests after George Floyd’s death in late May and the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the police shooting of 29-year-old unarmed black man, Jacob Blake.

Bruce suggested that Republicans, in contrast to the Democrats, had a unifying message regarding race relations and how to deal with rioters, pointing to Monday night speeches by Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

That’s when Brazile lost it and pulled the race card.

“This is why the choir sounds like a note coming from a scratched record. It sounds like I will never be an American in your world, because after 400 years, my family cannot walk out of this house without fearing violence!” she shouted.

“No one is saying that,” Bruce retorted as Kilmeade chimed in agreeing: “That’s not what anyone said.”

Nevertheless, Brazile continued, shouting: “You ignore the pains of people that are hurting … You do not recognize my existence!”

“You’re the shameful one Tammy, because I will not allow you to erase my existence,” Brazile continued.

The two guests talked over each other for more than a minute, before Fox News decided to pull the plug on the interview.

At one point, Kilmeade exasperatedly said, “I’m not sure how it got off the rails” before acknowledging he was “not too sure anyone benefitted from that.”

Anything else?

Last year, in a move that was criticized by both liberals and conservatives, Fox News hired Brazile as a paid contributor.

Brazile previously worked for CNN before being fired after tipping off the Hillary Clinton campaign about topics that would be brought up during a presidential debate in 2016.

Brazile right to lie Donna Brazile Intelwars Right to lie Trump twitter Twitter fact check

Former DNC chair Donna Brazile claims ‘there’s no First Amendment right to lie.’ Her co-hosts on ‘The Five’ erupt in mockery.

Panelists on Fox News’ “The Five” burst into mockery Wednesday night after former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile boldly claimed that “there’s no First Amendment right to lie.”

Brazile, a Fox News contributor, appeared on the show to discuss the developing feud between President Donald Trump and Twitter. The tech giant added a fact-check label to several of the president’s tweets Tuesday as part of an ongoing initiative by the platform.

After co-host Jesse Watters went on a lengthy tirade against the initiative even suggesting that Twitter officials could end up “helping the president” by proving that “the whole thing is so cooked up,” Brazile mocked him for “whining.”

Later during her response, Brazile took the argument a step further, suggesting that she would’ve “deleted” the president’s tweets, specifically referring to his tweets regarding MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and mail-in ballots.

“There’s no First Amendment right to lie. Period,” she said emphatically.

Caught off guard by the claim, the panel went silent for a few seconds before erupting in mockery.

Watch the exchange towards the end of the video below:

“You can’t lie?!” a shocked Greg Gutfeld asked as Dana Perino retorted “well, actually, you can.”

Brazile dug her heels in and shouted back: ‘There is no First Amendment right to lie. There’s no First Amendment right to lie. You just go ahead and lie.”

“I can say I’m 6 feet tall. Are you going to have me arrested?” Gutfeld responded. “What would happen to politicians, Donna? If you couldn’t lie, you’d have no politics,” he added.

As for the Trump-Twitter feud, the president reportedly plans to sign an executive order aimed at social media companies in the coming days.

Donna Brazile says Fox News’ Juan Williams ‘gave me the fist bump’ after her ‘go to hell’ tirade against Republican chairwoman

Fox News contributor Donna Brazile said Juan Williams, a longtime analyst for the cable network, “gave me the fist bump” after her on-air tirade Tuesday in which she told Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to “go to hell.”

What are the details?

Later in the day during a Super Tuesday panel, Fox News anchor Bret Baier asked Brazile about her comments to McDaniel.

“I just want to say that your tone has changed a little bit,” he told Brazile. “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 early on. Can you just explain that?”

After noting that “I’m a forgiving kind of person,” Brazile broke things down.

“I want to thank Chris Wallace and Brit Hume and Juan Williams. Yes, all three men,” she told Baier and the panel. “Juan gave me the fist bump, Chris gave me the talk, and Brit reminded me that, you know, sometimes … you shouldn’t call people outright. But let me just say this: As long as I’m alive, I’m gonna speak truth to power.”

Brazile — who briefly served as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee — also said McDaniel needs to “respect” how the Democrats go about their business.

“And I wanna make sure that the chairwoman, I know what her job is like, but I want her to understand, to respect the process on the Democratic side,” she said, adding, “Democracy is messy, but do not tell the world that the Democratic Party is trying to rig it for one candidate. We’re trying to make sure everybody gets a delegate. That’s why I said, ‘Put down that one for [Democratic presidential candidate] Tulsi [Gabbard].'”

What’s the background?

On Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” McDaniel weighed in on the Democratic presidential primary, saying, “It does depend on how big the lead that [Bernie] Sanders takes out of California is, if he picks up a huge proportion of delegates, but I don’t see anybody getting out soon, and it’s leading toward potentially a brokered [DNC] convention, which will be rigged against Bernie if those superdelegates have their way on that second vote.”

Brazile — who infamously shared debate questions with Hillary Clinton ahead of time during the Democratic primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in 2016 — reacted to McDaniel’s suggestion to co-hosts Ed Henry and Sandra Smith.

“First of all, I want to talk to my Republicans,” Brazile began. “First of all, stay the hell out of our race. Stay the hell out of our race. I get sick and tired, Ed and Sandra, of listening to Republicans tell me and the Democrats about our process. First of all, they don’t have a process. They’re canceling primaries. They have winner take all. They don’t have the kind of democracy that we see on the Democratic side. And for people to use Russian talking points to sow division among Americans — that is stupid.”

Then she lowered the boom: “So, Ronna, go to hell! This is not about — no, go to hell, I’m tired of it, Ed. … We are not trying to prevent anyone from becoming the nominee.”

How did McDaniel respond?

McDaniel responded to Brazile’s “go to hell” rant on Twitter:

“It’s ok, @donnabrazile,” she wrote. “I’d be having a bad day too if my party was still hopelessly divided. Talk of a brokered convention and the DNC trying to stop Bernie obviously hit a little close to home.”

McDaniel added more reactions later on.

“It’s never fun to have your teenagers come home from school and say, ‘Hey mom, you’re trending on social media because some woman said you should go to heck.’ But that being said, politics is a contact sport, and you know, I think Donna was out of line with her response,” McDaniel said, according to the Washington Examiner. “Of course, we all recognize that the Democrats did put the thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton in 2016 because of Donna, because of the book that she wrote, she exposed that.”

McDaniel also said she “felt very in my lane saying that this is happening. I don’t think it’s something that we can’t discuss, and I think her response was a little out of line and disproportionate to my comments earlier today,” the paper noted.

dnc Donna Brazile Intelwars rigged RNC Rona mcdaniel

Ex-DNC chair — who shared debate questions with Hillary Clinton — tells RNC chief to ‘go to hell’ over prospect of brokered Dem convention

Former Democratic National Committee chairwoman turned Fox News contributor Donna Brazile lost her cool on Monday, lashing out on air at Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and telling the GOP chief to “go to hell.”

Brazile — who famously
shared debate questions with Hillary Clinton ahead of time during the Democratic primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in 2016 — was apparently fired up over the suggestion that the DNC could be looking at a brokered convention in 2020.

What are the details?

On Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Ms. McDaniel weighed in on the Democratic presidential primary, saying, “It does depend on how big the lead that Sanders takes out of California is, if he picks up a huge proportion of delegates, but I don’t see anybody getting out soon and it’s leading towards potentially a brokered [DNC] convention which will be rigged against Bernie if those superdelegates have their way on the second vote.”

Co-hosts Ed Henry and Sandra Smith then turned to Brazile for her reaction, and the Democratic operative came unglued.

“First of all, I want to talk to my Republicans,” Brazile began. “First of all, stay the hell out of our race. Stay the hell out of our race. I get sick and tired, Ed and Sandra, of listening to Republicans tell me and the Democrats about our process.”

The ex-DNC chair continued, “First of all, they don’t have a process. They’re canceling primaries. They have winner take all. They don’t have the kind of democracy that we see on the Democratic side. And for people to use Russian talking points to sow division among Americans — that is stupid.”

“So, Ronna, go to hell!” Brazile said. “This is not about — no, go to hell, I’m tired of it, Ed…We are not trying to prevent anyone from becoming the nominee.”

Following the 2016 election, Brazile wrote a book wherein she claimed the DNC and the Clinton campaign rigged the primaries against Sanders. She later walked back that claim, but told her Democratic critics at the time to “go to hell.”

How did McDaniel respond?

McDaniel wrote on Twitter after the interview, “It’s ok, @donnabrazile. I’d be having a bad day too if my party was still hopelessly divided. Talk of a brokered convention and the DNC trying to stop Bernie obviously hit a little close to home.”
