A bad month for the DNC
Let's do an inventory.
Just short of a month ago the DNC did a purge of progressives.
"This doesn't bring the party together, it deepens the divide at a time we need all hands on deck," James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute and prominent Sanders supporter who was ousted from the DNC Executive Committee, wrote on Twitter Thursday.
A week later it turned out the DNC helped fund the Trump dossier.
How big a deal is this? Well, the motives of the investigation, which was—and is—transparently aimed at finding anti-Trump information, are important to factor into to any assessment of the dossier. To that end, ever since news of the dossier broke, it's been taken with sufficient grains of salt by just about everyone. It’s opposition research; it’s unverified.
Then the DNC had to finally deal with it's inability to raise funds.
Emily Mellencamp Smith, the party’s finance director, was let go in a shake-up of the party’s senior leadership designed to energize the party's fundraising.
And then a few days later the Brazile bombshell.
Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile released an excerpt from her upcoming book in which she wrote that the Democratic primary had overtly favored Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders, writing that her campaign was helping prop up the DNC's finances beginning in mid-2015, which gave the Clinton campaign the ability to influence the DNC.
Finally, Democratic poll numbers hit all-time lows.
Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992.
You might think that after a disastrous month like that someone would lose their job.
How would a responsible political party react?
Schumer, played by Alex Moffat, quipped that Democrats had not "felt this confident since the day before Trump won!"
Kate McKinnon's Pelosi said that during last week's local elections, Americans had embraced Democrats' "fresh new ideas delivered by fresh new faces" like herself, Feinstein, Schumer, and Kaine.
Pelosi is 77, Feinstein is 84, Schumer is 66, and Kaine is 59.
... Pelosi said that the party had learned its lesson from the last election and that it couldn't appeal just to "coastal elites."
"We need mouth-breathers from Wisconsin," McKinnon's Pelosi said.
"And window-lickers from Ohio as well," Strong's Feinstein said.
