This is a pretty funny exchange.
In her interview last night with Fox News host, Tucker Carlson, former DNC chair Donna Brazile backpedaled on previous admissions that she gave Hillary Clinton’s camp some debate questions in advance of a primary debate last year.
In fact, her verbal gymnastics were so good, it caused Carlson to burst into a fit of laughter at her attempt to spin what she had done.

Brazile claimed she wasn’t cheating on behalf of the Clinton campaign, she was merely assuring that the Democrat candidates weren’t blindsided by the questioning.
Which. Is. Cheating.
“What I sought to do was to ensure that we had these issues on the table, and I didn’t want our candidates blindsided,” she claimed. “That’s what I admitted to.”
Almost immediately, Carlson burst into laughter and admired how good that master level of spin was.
“That’s the greatest spin I’ve ever heard!” Carlson exclaimed. “That’s so good! You should do this for a living! That is hilarious.”

In an essay for Time Magazine, Brazile admitted sharing debate questions with Hillary’s campaign.
“[I]n October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and [Democratic National Committee] Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign,” she said.
On @TuckerCarlson Brazile says she leaked the questions to Hillary so they wouldn’t be blindsided. REALLY? Tuckers says best spin ever!

She also offered a different reason than trying to prevent being blindsided, admitting she needed to make her candidate ‘look good’ during the debates.
“My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen,” she said. “But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.”
It wasn’t all bad, Donna. At least the revelations that you cheated on behalf of Hillary finally came to light, and the reality that the DNC rigged the nomination for her was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Thank you for that. Now we won’t be blindsided by thinking the Democrats are running a legitimate organization.
