DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn’t endearing herself to conservative journalists this week and this time it may be to her detriment. As of late, she has become a liberal punching bag for right-leaning journalists around the Beltway and beyond. This week she stirred up a hornet’s nest by accusing Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner of misquoting her.
Not only did the editorial page writer not misquote her, but he has the video to prove it. And last night things went from bad to worse as Wasserman Schultz told the conservative Free Beacon that no, she won’t apologize to Klein.
“Disgraceful,” wrote Stephen Hayes, senior political writer for The Weekly Standard, on Twitter last night.
The tension between Wasserman Schultz and conservative journos has been building. In his GOP Convention speech, FNC’s mild-mannered and God-fearing Mike Huckabee made fun of her voice, joking that he could hear her from the hotel next door. In response, she told The Daily Beast that Huckabee couldn’t handle strong women. And in response, Huckabee said you “can’t go getting your feelings hurt every time someone makes fun of you.”
