A CNN panel on Inside Politics on Friday mocked Democrats for their lack of leadership, even laughing at one point at the division between DNC Chair Tom Perez and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

“We spent a lot of time earlier on the program on the Republicans having a hard time getting the governing act together,” host John King said. “The Democrats have their own set of dysfunction and disarray.”

The panel watched a clip of Sanders doing a joint interview with Perez. Sanders, while sitting right next to Perez, denied that he is a Democrat.

King then chuckled and waved his hands as he pointed out the irony of Sanders campaigning to rebuild the Democratic Party while not actually being a Democrat.

“Their auditions are open,” The Daily Beast‘s Jackie Kucinich said. “And you are seeing some of these folks, particularly in the Senate – Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, for example, Kristen Gillibrand. They are auditioning. There are books coming out.”

“No one writes books for their health,” Kucinich added.

The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball, meanwhile, said that she believes the leader of the Democratic Party is President Trump. Ball said that Trump has done a better job of uniting Democratic opposition than any of the Democratic Party’s ineffective leaders.
