Newly elected chairman of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez became unhinged during an event in New Jersey on Friday, where he claimed that President Donald Trump “didn’t win” last year’s presidential election.
During a short speech at an event hosted by the New Jersey Working Families Alliance in Newark on Friday, Perez hailed Democratic opposition to the Republican plan to replace Obamacare and declared that although Jan. 20 — the day Trump became president — was historic, Jan. 21 was even more important because that’s the day “the resistance took over,” while lauding protesters across the nation.
“They marched all over the world and said, “Donald Trump, you don’t stand for our values…Donald Trump you didn’t win the election,'” Perez claimed.
Later in his speech, Perez bashed Trump for “wanting his name on everything,” citing Trump Tower and “Trump steaks,” but noted that when it came to the GOP health care repeal plan, Trump didn’t want to put his name on it.
That’s when Perez made an unbelievable claim.
“Republicans don’t give a sh*t about people,” he said when talking about the GOP health care plan. “That’s what it’s about.”
Perez’s comment incited a thunderous applause and cheers from the crowd.
Prior to being elected DNC chairman earlier this year, Perez served as the labor secretary under former President Barack Obama.
