Transcript for Donna Brazile joins 'Fox News'
But, here's something that ought to make lots of folks chuckle. Former DNC chair Donna Brazile shocked the hell out of people with her next career move as an on-air contributor for Fox News. She made her case for why she feels it's a good thing for her to be there. Take a look. This is an opportunity to reach across the aisle. To others in my own part as well to hear what is going on in the democratic party and hear my perspective. I want to be able to as a Democrat, a Progressive, a liberal, to talk to the fox family. I'm thrilled that this has happened. We have done it. I mean, Chris Christie is upstairs somewhere. We have folks -- I didn't mean it like that. You know, but -- Like he lives in the attic. Come down, Chris. He's on the bridge. Any way. He's -- you know, he's over -- and CNN has done it. This might be -- this might be the first indication that we're actually going back to news. Someone just pointed out to me that, fox is not allowed to host the primaries. The democratic primary. Yeah. So maybe this is their way of getting back into the good graces of the Democrats. It's possible. She's been appearing on fox a lot as of recently. She doesn't have a squeaky clean past. Nobody does. Nobody does. But I think she's a very smart I say kx udos to her. The audience, much of them are not going to be on her side. And kudos to fox, because she has. Been on their side much. I think that's all good. I know Donna pretty well. And anyone that knows Donna knows that she's pretty spicy. She has a wonderful sense of humor. She'll handle this extremely well. What I also like about this move is that, you know, and I thing you just said this recently. 38% of Americans identify as independent. And 30% of Americans identify as Republican. 30% as Democrat. If you're watching fox and you're in the independent lane, then you do need a different voice to listen to. So she's not necessary hi just preaching to the choir. Do the independents watch -- They do. They watch everything. They watch everything. It will be very interesting that she now has this platform to -- I think it's great. I think it's interesting to go into a space where the ideology is hated. And not that I would know anything about that every day. And I thing it was what was so -- Hate is too strong a word. Normally, it feels like a hostile audience when I come in here, which is fine. I'm a big girl. I'm not asking for sympathy. If you can win over people who disagree with you, that, for political analysis is key. Better than winning them over. Showing them that you are a person. Yeah, that's true.
