A prominent Democratic Party strategist has slammed “pain-in-the-ass white liberals on Twitter” who lecture the public on behalf of the Democrats.
Paul Begala, who worked for Bill Clinton, claims that outspoken celebrity liberals such as Kathy Griffin are not “real Democrats”
Begala made the comments while talking to former 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
Yang thinks Biden is too old to run again and told Begala the president will face a primary if he does run again.
“So, you know who might run if they actually have an open process?” Yang said.
“People who are already outside of the establishment.
“Someone like Ohio state Senator and former Bernie Sanders campaign aide Nina Turner, someone like Marianne Williamson.
“And if you have just a Nina Turner versus Joe Biden, Nina Turner ends up gathering a significant amount of support, just ideologically.
“And the last thing the DNC is going to want is for Joe Biden to have to debate Nina turner six times.
“So, they’ll shut that thing down.”
Begala said: “She can run. Bring it on.
“What the hell are you worried about?
“You’re not a Democrat anymore, but I am.
“And as a guy who loves Joe Biden, that’s fine.
“He’ll steamroll any potential Democrat and then go on and beat Trump.”
Yang said Biden won’t make it through the rigors of a campaign now that they can’t hide him in the basement.
“I spoke before or after Joe Biden half a dozen times,” he said.
“And the fact is, when he came off that stage, you know what people were not saying? ‘That guy has the energy, the vigor–’”
“All of a sudden he developed it,” Begala fired back.
“You’re missing the most important thing, Andrew.
“The early states are full of white liberals.
“They don’t like Joe.
“And then we move to real Democrats, African Americans in the south.
“They loved him.
“And he steamrolled everybody because in my party, the heart and soul of the party are people of color, not pain-in-the-ass white liberals on Twitter.
“I’m sorry to use bad language,” he said.
Begala said earlier about Biden and Democrat voters who do not like him:
“Well, he got infrastructure passed and that’s a good thing because success can breed success.
“He is putting the full force of the presidency behind it.
“I think the problem for the Democrats right now is not that they have bad leaders.
“They have bad followers, ok?”
I have officially fallen out of love with Merrick Garland. https://t.co/5YHX9ACZq5

As much as Twitter is an evil & dark place, it’s going to be way worse with Elon musk. I’m not worried about where we will go. I just prefer words to video. However, I will just learn to become more proficient on Instagram & TikTok. I’m finally verified on TikTok @KathyGriffin
