DNC Chair Couldn’t Answer This Simple Question About Bernie Sanders… But Why Not?


Liberal commentator Chris Matthews had Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as a guest on his show and asked her some questions about Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who is a self proclaimed socialist. Sanders has been gaining on Hillary Clinton in the polls.

First, Matthews asked Wasserman-Schultz if Sanders would be given a prime time speaking slot at the convention if he fails to get the nomination or if he would be given a less substantial role since he is a socialist. Wasserman-Schultz ducked this question a bit and instead focused on the “big tent” of the Democratic party.

Matthews then asked the Chairwoman of the DNC what the difference is the between a Democrat and a socialist. And she was unable to answer the question.

Is there a difference between Democrats and socialists? Please comment below.

  1. the Dims are open socialists. The Repugs are “closet socialists ”

    “We do not have two political parties in this country, America. We have one party;
    called the Big Government Party.
    The Republican wing likes deficits, war, and assaults on civil liberties.
    The Democratic wing likes wealth transfer, taxes, and assaults on commercial liberties.
    Both parties like power; and neither is interested in your freedoms.”

    liberalism [socialism,communism,fascism ] are all failed attempts to oppress the masses by greedy ego maniacs with a self serving misconception they know best [that is their lie to gain power] and then throw in social inequality to make their minions feel like victims, hand out some one elses tax dollars and reward slack aces for sitting home and guess what ; you have a model of retrocommunist OBAMA’S destruction of our nation.

  3. David says:

    she answered his first question and his second question at the same time [ big tent] to the democraps is a conglomeration of socialists, communists, fascists with the same agenda ; to destroy the greatest free market capitalistic society in mans history.

  4. Phillip says:

    The difference between a democrat and a socialist is the socialist is honest about what he believes and the democrat lies about what he believes when, in fact, they both believe the same thing.

  5. Rick says:

    Wasserman is a total dip-chit with zero credibility. She couldn’t answer the question because she has no idea. What a waste of skin.
