Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager slammed Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Wednesday after she told CNN the Vermont senator did not do enough to condemn his supporters’ behavior at the party’s Nevada convention.
“We can have a long conversation about Debbie Wasserman Schultz just about how she’s been throwing shade on the Sanders campaign from the very beginning,” Jeff Weaver told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day” about the Democratic National Committee chairwoman. “It’s not the DNC. By and large, people in the DNC have been good to us. Debbie Wasserman Schultz really is the exception,” Weaver added.
Chaos erupted at the state convention in Nevada this weekend after Sanders supporters thought the convention was being shut down — leading to shouting and reports of chairs being thrown. Top Democratic party officials, including Sen. Barbara Boxer, said they were harassed by the Sanders’ supporters at the gathering. Nevada Democratic party chairwoman Roberta Lange’s phone number was posted on social media, leading to over a thousand angry phone calls, text messages, and death threats.
