Advice to Donna Brazile: Don’t Cuss Out the Kids

Donna Brazile's book is full of revelations, including some helpful advice from a friend. Hillary Clinton campaign advisor Minyon Moore, “always elegant in her manners, had another delicate piece of advice for me about dealing with the smart young people in Brooklyn,” Brazile wrote in her new book,Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House. Minyon told Brazile, “Donna, you cannot cuss these kids out because it will shut them down,'” referring to the “smart young” staffers on Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. “‘What the fuck?’ I said. Damn! They picked the wrong woman for the job,” Brazile wrote. Donna and Minyon are longtime friends and part of the crew affectionately known as “The Colored Girls.” Brazile writes about frustration with Clinton staffers during her time as interim DNC Chair. The book released Tuesday has sparked a firestorm, pitting her against some former Clinton campaign staffers andBarack Obama supporters, as she accused 44 of leaving the DNC in debt. More here.
