Former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile spoke to “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough on Wednesday morning about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and called the group a “cult.”

What did she say?

Scarborough told Brazile that he believes President Donald Trump won the 2016 election for a variety of reasons, including alleged Russian interference, former FBI Director James Comey, and mistakes that were made by the Clinton campaign.

“I’ll put it all in there,” he said, “but it should have never been a close race.”

Scarborough turned the floor over to Brazile and asked her opinion on Clinton’s loss.

“Why did they lose?” he asked. “Was it, at the end of the day, arrogance?”

Brazile responded affirmatively and added, “It was a cult. I felt like it was a cult.”

“You could not penetrate them,” she continued.

Brazile then discussed the way she, personally, operates as a “grassroots organizer.”

“I know how to touch people where they live, work, play and pray,” she explained. “I cannot help a candidate if I don’t have the resources, if I cannot spend the resources that the party is raising.”
