Watch: Audience Boos Tom Perez At DNC ‘Unity Tour’ Kickoff Event

DNC Chairman Tom Perez and Senator Bernie Sanders appear to be having some difficulty agreeing on core issues.

During a joint interview on MSNBC with Sanders and Perez, the Senator expressed his frustration with “the ruling class & billionaire class,” stating America needs to point the figure at it as the root of all problems.

This message, of course, echoes the socialist platform Bernie Sanders ran on during the last Presidential election.

As for Mr. Perez? He doesn’t appear to see things quite like Sanders.

When MSNBC’s Chris Hayes pushed Perez to comment on whether or not he agreed with Sanders’ point that America needs to point the finger at the ruling class, Perez floundered.

“Well, listen,” he said. “When we put hope on the ballot, Chris, we win. When we allow our opponents to put fear on the ballot, we don’t do so well…”

Hayes wasn’t having it.

“Wait, Tom, Hillary Clinton ran on hope,” he jumped in. “It was a very hopeful message. The point is. Do you have to name the enemy?”

“Well listen,” began Perez’s reply once again.

See the awkward clip below.

Even CNN has noticed the lack of unity on the DNC’s unity tour.

In an article titled, “Sanders, Perez Unity Tour Is Off To A Bumpy Start,” CNN mentions Monday’s rather embarrassing kickoff event during which the audience expressed support for Bernie and disdain for Democrats.

“When the leader of the Maine Young Democrats asked the crowd what brought them to the rally,” the article reads, “the audience erupted in ‘Bernie’ cheers.”

“The leader followed up by asking, ‘Maybe you came though because you are curious about the new DNC chairman and the future of Democratic politics?’ – and the crowd cut her off with boos.”

    Milo: you’re becoming a paste & cut blog. Cool, it’s your site. That’s OK. Some think otherwise. Where is the original content?

    “DNC Chairman Tom Perez and Senator Bernie Sanders appear to be having some difficulty agreeing on core issues.”

    As if the Replicowards don’t have the same backyard-brawls.

      Dante – But the Republicans don’t display it on a “Unity Tour”!

      Clay – They don’t seem to realize that the world of George McGovern and Jimmy Carter is disappearing and will soon be gone. The Feinstein-Pelosi-Clinton generation of Democrats simply cannot adjust to the way the world is,

    The LEFT is philosophically ever so corrupted. Abortion lust and transgender anti-science seem their top concerns. And no, communism does not work. Never has, never will.

      we just want to help the unfortunate.

      wasn’t that what jesus said? “Give everything to the poor and go live amongst them”

      i know. i know. its so hard for republicans to hear the words of jesus.

      jesus the ultimate ascetic (by the by, i’m told there are no golf courses in heaven.)

        Dante – you can say that, but experience suggests otherwise. For example, the Moslems in Chechnya are torturing and killing gay men just for being gay. Yet I have seen only one liberal express any concern over that, and that is Lauren Duca. Nobody else on the liberal side seems to care and if they do, the liberals in the media are not covering it.
        By the way, President Trump recently came out with a condemnation of, and policy against, female genital mutilation, and the liberals in the media did not cover that either.

          If you’re a liberal, you can’t say anything negative about Muslims. That would be politically incorrect and make you a fascist. Therefore, their many crimes must be ignored.

            I’m Liberal. I find Islam vile. There, you’ve found a liberal who has has said something “negative about Muslims.”

        The largest charitable institution in the world is the Catholic
        Church. My parish is crammed with Republicans – who also support the most vulnerable and unfortunate among us, the murdered, defenseless unborn. You’re ignorant and your point is ignorant.

      Quit using communism as an accusation
      It is not a factor any more and identifies you as a troll

    One of the problems is the “the ruling class”. As in rich well-connected people like the Clintons? The same people he (Bernie) urged his followers to vote for? Sounds like hypocrisy there, Berne. Or did you get what you wanted after that endorsement and now ok to name the enemy because Hillary isn’t Prez and no longer useful to you?

    Haha. I couldn’t get past this: “Wait, Tom, Hillary
    Clinton ran on hope,” he jumped in. “It was a very hopeful message. The
    point is. Do you have to name the enemy?”

    Hope? Hillary ran on hope? Hilarious. Hope for what? All I heard from Ms Smirkmouth was lies and same ‘ole, same ‘ole. She didn’t have a platform, didn’t have a message, and all her “promises” were shapeless shadows. I don’t suppose there is any hope she will just disappear from our lives now.

    As for these two, pffffffffffft.

    Nope. All I heard from the left was hate, division, lies, hate, lies and more hate with a little more hate thrown in for good measure. The only hope they had was that everyone would buy their BS messages and vote for the Perp In A Pantsuit, but a message of hope for the US? From them, the party that put us and the world in this mess? Hope? Ha!

    Here’s MY hope, that the left keeps on committing political suicide and another more rational, non-Communist party takes over as counter-balance.

    This desperate, soulless demagogue whines, in pathetically transparent speciousness, that Trump doesn’t want the ACA named for him, when the ACA is still in force just as Obama and the Dems stuffed it down our throats. So to Perez it’s a huge mystery why Trump wouldn’t want Obamacare to be called TrumpCare. Which makes you wonder what else in the universe is an unfathomable mystery to Tom Perez. Maybe he spends his days agonizing over why apples don’t fall up, or how it can be that he doesn’t fit into his favorite PJs anymore–you know, the ones he wore when he was three.
