Tuesday morning on “Fox and Friends” former chair of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile had a meltdown on live television following the first night of the Republican National Convention, which took place Monday evening.
During the end of the segment, Brazile vented her frustration at Tammy Bruce, President of The Independent Women’s Voice, for “patronizing” her and attempting to “ignore 400 years” of history, by appreciating the RNC speakers’ platforms on Monday. Continued Below
“She ignores the reality of what is happening. She is ignoring it because they see it. Tammy, I see it every day. I see the violence, Tammy,” Donna Brazile claimed. “You do not recognize my existence, Tammy. You do not recognize my existence!”
Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade tried to step in so Tammy Bruce could have a chance to respond, but Brazile continued to vent, saying “You’re the shameful one, Tammy” and also said that Bruce can’t “erase” her history.
“She doesn’t want an answer,” Bruce told Kilmeade.
Kilmeade quickly wrapped up the interview, saying, “Alright. That’s not going well. I’m not to sure anyone benefited from that.” Video Below

Tammy Bruce later took to Twitter to say: “It’s becoming rather obvious the Dems had a bad night last night and anticipate having a very bad week. The message at the RNC convention was one of inclusion, optimism, patriotism, & the potential of the American dream. It’s a shame anyone would find that sentiment offensive.”

Full exchange between Donna Brazile and Tammy Bruce:
Meanwhile, Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist, responded to claims made by Donna Brazile on Fox News, Tuesday.
“I mean, no offense because she’s not here to push back against me, but when Donna Brazile reacts like that, she actually represents the kind of thing that I think worries a lot of Americans, which is that if you disagree with what you see happening in the streets, if you say, ‘This is not justified,’ that in some way, that means that you’re a racist, denying 400 years of slavery to erasing black Americans or their experience,” Domenech said.
