New President of Sanders’ Political Group Slams DNC: ‘They’re Pompous and Arrogant’
The new president of a nonprofit group founded by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) has eagerly taken on the Democratic National Committee, calling it “pompous” and “tone-deaf.”
Self-proclaimed “justice warrior” Nina Turner was tapped to take over the group, Our Revolution, in June, BuzzFeedreports. Since then, the former Ohio state senator has criticized the DNC more harshly than Sanders’ own rhetoric.
“The establishment side of the Democratic Party has shown themselves to be dictators,” Turner said, adding that the DNC is not “smart enough, humble enough, to say, let’s take a step back and really listen to the people.”
