The political world was still recovering from Donna Brazile's bombshell accusing Hillary Clinton of rigging the primary election when yet another explosive claim was made by the former DNC chair Saturday.
What did she say?
The former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee said in another excerpt from her book that she was so worried about Clinton's ailing health and "anemic" campaign that she considered replacing her and her Vice Presidential nominee, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.).
According to the Washington Post, Brazile wrote that she was looking at a dozen options to replace them and settled on former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) before changing her mind.
“Again and again I thought about Joe Biden,” Brazile wrote.
“No matter my doubts and my fears about the election and Hillary as a candidate, I could not make good on that threat to replace her," she decided.
Brazile had considered replacing Clinton after the candidate stumbled on her way from a 9/11 remembrance ceremony in 2016. The DNC chair wrote that the campaign had taken on the "odor of failure," and looked into using her power as chair to change the nominee.
What was the response from Hillary supporters?
Peter Daou has been a reliable defender of Hillary Clinton, and he immediately shot down what Brazile said.

Others said Brazile was simply trying to sell books.
So we’re all in agreement not to buy @donnabrazile’s book right? She shouldn’t get to earn a profit by backstabbing Democrats.— Christie (@Christie)1509822658.0
