MSNBC makes Wasserman Schultz look stupid: ‘What is the difference between a Democrat and a socialist?’

dwsA top leader of the Democratic Party can’t say what makes its approach to governing different from socialism.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, was caught off guard Thursday when MSNBC host Chris Matthews asked her to explain the difference.

She couldn’t answer.

The question came up when Matthews asked whether Wasserman Schultz would let Bernie Sanders speak at the Democratic National Convention next year.

Sanders, an Independent senator from Vermont, is a socialist who’s running for president as a Democrat.

“What is the difference between a Democrat and a socialist?” “Hardball” host Matthews asked Wasserman Schultz.

She laughed nervously.

“I used to think there was a big difference,” Matthews said. “What do you think it is?”

“The difference between—the real question is what’s the difference between being a Democrat and being a Republican,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Matthews wouldn’t let her dodge.

“Yeah, but what’s the big difference between being a Democrat and being a socialist?” Matthews said. “You’re the chairwoman of the Democratic Party. Tell me the difference between you and a socialist.”

“The relevant debate that we’ll be having over the course of this campaign is what’s the difference between being a Democrat and being a Republican,” Wasserman-Schultz repeated.
