Bernie Sanders is having an eventful week. For instance, he strongly defended his supporters who threw chairs at the Nevada Democratic Party Convention, and sent threats to the state party’s chairwoman, after she invalidated 60 of Sanders’ delegates. Sanders’ troubles with the Democratic party also run national, with The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah questioning DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in early April on why Hillary Clinton would still be able to win the nomination, given her advantage with superdelegates, even if Sanders were to win the majority of primaries and votes.
Now Sanders is saying that Debbie Wasserman Schultz would not remain as the head of the Democratic Party were he to become president. Speaking on Sunday with CNN, anchor Jake Tapper asked Sanders about whether he supports Wasserman Schultz, who is currently running in a primary for re-election to her seat in the House of Representatives against law professor Tim Canova, who is a Sanders supporter.
Well, clearly I favor her opponent. His views are much closer to mine than as to Wasserman Schultz’s. And let me also say this, in all due respect to the current chairperson, if elected president, she would not be reappointed to be chair of the DNC.
