Former Sanders Spox: 'We Don't Need White People Leading The Democratic Party'

According to former Bernie Sanders spokeswoman Symone Sanders, the "diverse" Democratic party doesn't need "white people" leading it.

CNN's Brianna Keilar asked Sanders on Wednesday for her thoughts on prospective DNC chair Howard Dean.

Sanders responded:
"Howard Dean, you know, Howard Dean was there for the 50-state strategy, but here's the issue: Howard Dean is also on record maligning young people and millennials. Telling those Bernie folks they just need to get in line and maligning Bernie Sanders. And that is not what we need."

"And in my opinion we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now. The Democratic party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in leadership and throughout the staff, at the highest levels. From the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC. "

"I think we need a robust discussion about this and I think we need to hear more from all the candidates. Jaime Harrison of South Carolina, he's great, too. He's done real party building, but everybody doesn't necessarily know Jaime and they want to know what he stands for. So I want to hear more from everybody. I want to hear from the millennials and the brown folks."

CNN responded with shock and outrage and attacked Sanders for her "racist identity politics."

...Just kidding, they said nothing and wrote a favorable write-up of her comments for their website.

Two weeks ago, Sanders responded to video of a white Trump supporter being violently attacked by a black mob in Chicago by saying: "Oh my goodness, poor white people!"

If you had any fears the Democratic party would actually try to get their act together and attempt to once again appeal to working class white voters, it's looking like that's not going to be much of an issue.
