Tone Deaf DNC

Tone Deaf DNC

Just a short post regarding all the brouhaha that has happened today at the start of the Democratic Convention. I want to know, just how f*cking tone deaf is the DNC? What Bernie supporters have been wanting all along is a clean election– a fair shake, and the emails demonstrate that this didn’t happen. That isn’t the worse part.
