Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee Chair­woman Ronna McDaniel is do­ing her part to el­e­vate the pub­lic dis­course fol­low­ing an emo­tion­ally charged speech by Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee chair­man Tom Perez be­fore a New Jersey pro­gres­sive or­ga­ni­za­tion this week­end. Ms. McDaniel says her coun­ter­part across the aisle is “un­hinged.”

So what did he say? Among many things, Mr. Perez said that Pres­i­dent Trump is “a bully in the White House,” that he does not stand for Amer­i­can val­ues and did not win the elec­tion.

“Chair­man Perez’s com­ments are dan­ger­ous and un­der­mine our demo­cratic process. Per­haps Mr. Perez needs a les­son on how the Elec­toral Col­lege works — but whether he likes it or not, Don­ald Trump is our pres­i­dent,” Ms. McDaniel points out.

“Mr. Perez should be ashamed of him­self for in­sult­ing the mil­lions of Amer­i­cans who don’t share his lib­eral vision for our coun­try. The Democrats are the mi­nor­ity party be­cause of com­ments like those, and if he thinks this is the way back from the wilder­ness, he’s sorely mis­taken. Mr. Perez should apol­o­gize, and Democrats should de­nounce the rhetoric com­ing from the new leader of their party,” she con­cluded.
