President Donald Trump began his traditional early-morning Twitter-tirade Sunday by whining about the “totally ‘rigged'” race for Democratic National Committee Chairman.
“The race for DNC Chairman was, of course, totally ‘rigged,'” the Commander in Chief groused around 3:33 a.m., referencing former US Labor Secretary Tom Perez’s Saturday win over Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison.
“Bernie’s guy, like Bernie himself, never had a chance. Clinton demanded Perez!” bragged the tweet, referencing failed democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Trump’s harsh words for Sen. Sanders followed a Twitter exchange Saturday in which the Vermont Democrat mocked the size of the President’s inauguration crowds.
Perez gained the backing of several Obama administration alums, including former Vice President Joe Biden and former Attorney General Eric Holder–and was even rumored to be on Hillary Clinton’s short-list for VP during the summer of 2016.
Following his Saturday win, Perez announced he intended to make Ellison –“Bernie’s guy”–deputy chairman.
Trump’s diatribe against Perez’s “rigged” election came less than a day after he took to the same forum to congratulate the new DNC Chair for his win.
“Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!” Trump wrote Saturday afternoon.
