This is great. As the Daily Caller notes:
Newly elected Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez campaigned for Democrats in Newark, New Jersey Friday by telling a crowd the Republican Party doesn’t “give a shit” about them.
Perez, speaking at a rally hosted by the New Jersey Working Families Alliance, first congratulated protesters on showing up in droves to Washington, DC on January 21, the day after President Trump’s inauguration.
Perez claimed those people gathered and proclaimed, “Donald Trump, you don’t stand for our values… Donald Trump you didn’t win the election.”
Later in his speech, President Obama’s secretary of labor added that he doesn’t “care” if people take issue with his speech, just like how “Republicans don’t give a shit about people.”
So, two things…
One, Donald Trump DID, in fact, win the election. Hillary won the popular vote, but the United States isn’t governed by a national popular vote. We’re with Brent Scher on this one…
Can’t believe I am still reading about the popular vote. Would be like a football team bragging that they got more yards after losing a game

This election was a total failure for the Democratic Party, whose extreme agenda was rejected by almost anyone outside of New York, Boston, and California. It was so bad that the DNC just fired EVERYBODY.
Two, Perez is DNC chair because the Democrats lost the election in a spectacular fashion. He won a narrow election against congressman Keith Ellison, a “former” racial separatist, Nation of Islam member who indulged 9-11 conspiracy theories, because the party brass viewed Ellison as a bit too crazy to run the DNC.
Watching this speech, we’re not sure the DNC chose the “less crazy” guy.
