DNC Vice Chairman Fires Back At Fox News For Trying To Shame Democrats: ‘We’re Not The Ones Going To Jail’
On Wednesday, a Fox News frequent guest tried to shame Democratic candidates claiming that they are “so far to the left.” Michael Blake, the vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, fired back with the perfect response.
During a panel discussion on Fox News, Republican strategist Brad Blakeman claimed that Democratic candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would “suck the oxygen out of the room because she is so far to the left.”
“Then you have Democrats like you are speaking of who tend to be more moderate, that is the dilemma that Democrats have in the fall. Who are you? Who are you going to be? Are you going to be Socialist Democrats?
“We are going to be not going to jail,” Blake fired back. “We’re going to be avoiding trial, the way you’ve had Gates and Manafort and now Collins.”
Blake added that Democratic candidates varied from district to district. “The notion of me telling someone what to do in their district is not how [we should be] pursuing this.”
