DNC Staffer claims Trump presidency will be fatal! ‘I’m going to die from climate change…it’s going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy’



One Democratic National Committee staffer became enraged at interim chair Donna Brazile on Thursday in the DNC’s first meeting since Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss to Donald Trump.

The staffer, only identified as Zach, had some choice words for Brazile and her failure to lead the Democratic Party to victory on Tuesday night.

Brazile was giving a post-election rallying speech to a group of approximately 150 DNC staffers on Thursday when Zach stood up and offered his unfiltered thoughts on her leadership during the 2016 election, the Huffington Post reported.

“Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.”

Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say.

“You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”

After his tirade, Zach reportedly packed up his belongings and stormed out of the room as Brazile called after him. He then told Brazile that she needed to go outside and explain to the “people there” why she should still be leading the DNC.

Other staffers at the meeting supposedly nodded along as he spoke, agreeing with the sentiments he raised. Sources at the meeting told the Huffington Post that his feelings are not unique among DNC staffers.
