Trump may be correct, the RNC is playing a dangerous game:
And though Trump blamed the booing on his refusal to accept donations, which isn’t exactly true, his assessment of the audience checked out.
This weekend Breitbart News reported the breakdown of the Peace Center’s 1600 seats: 600 of which reportedly went to candidates, 550 to the state party and locally elected officials, 367 to the RNC and the remaining 100 tickets were split between CBS, the Peace Center and Google.
It’s true what they say—even a broken orange clock is right twice a day.
And Bernie has some issues with the DNC:
During the debate Thursday, Sanders targeted Clinton’s super PAC, saying it had received $15 million of its $25 million in contributions from Wall Street sources. In contrast, he said, “Our average contribution is $27.” Clinton responded by arguing that Sanders was “mixing apples and oranges” and that it was, in fact, possible to take donations from Wall Street and remain independent, pointing to Obama and his support of tougher regulations on big banks as proof of the concept.
After news broke of the DNC’s policy reversal, the Sanders campaign urged Clinton to criticize the committee’s change in direction. “We support the restrictions that President Obama put in place, and we hope Secretary Clinton will join us in supporting the president,” campaign representative Michael Briggs said. However, Clinton appears to have remained silent on the issue.
In an email to supporters Sunday, Sanders’ campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, pointed out the Democrats won the White House in 2008 and 2012 even with the ban on funding by lobbyists. “If we are to restore a vibrant democracy in this country, it is long past time to break the link between money and special-interest favors in politics,” he said.
