Former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile made her debut as a Fox News contributor Monday, saying Democrats must "stop yelling at each other."
"I think we have to lower the temperature, lower the rhetoric. We need to stop yelling at each other," Brazile said on "The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino" in response to the video of Chelsea Clinton being confronted by a Muslim student for "stoking" Islamophobia.
"Chelsea Clinton is a woman of valor and I admire her courage and the way that she was composed during that entire process. But she is a leader and I also believe that she is a healer," Brazile said.
"There’s no question that we’re a big tent party but we do not in any way tolerate any forms of bigotry, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, racism," Brazile added. "We’re not going to allow these 'isms' to divide us and distract us from what we’d like to accomplish as Americans."
"I think the American people… they want leadership. They want someone who’s not only compassionate but who empathize with their plight," Brazile said. "One of the things that President Trump was able to do in 2016 was to reach those voters who felt like they belong on the outskirts of hope. And he said 'I will fight for you, I’m going to bring you jobs back.'"
"But I think what Democrats will offer is a new path, a new direction with policies that will lift everybody up and give everyone whether you’re poor, part of the middle-class a fair shot and a fair chance," Brazile added.
