DNC ‘Unity Tour’ Proving the Democratic Party is Anything But Unified

From Sanders declaring he’s not a Democrat to the crowd booing Perez, this national tour is a disaster.

The Democratic National Committee’s “Unity Tour” featuring DNC Chair Tom Perez and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is turning out to be an unmitigated disaster for the party desperately seeking a win.

Sanders confirmed once again this week that he’s not a Democrat during a joint interview with Perez on Tuesday night, serving as the latest blow to the united facade the Democratic Party was attempting to put up.

Both Sanders and Perez appeared on MSNBC following an event in Louisville, KY when MSNBC’s Chris Hayes asked Sanders if he now considered himself to be a Democrat.

“No, I’m an independent,” Sanders declared proudly with Perez sitting just inches away from him.

This isn’t the first hiccup in the DNC’s highly touted “Unity Tour.”

Even before the tour began, there was controversy with Sanders blasting an email out to his supporters that failed to mention his upcoming national tour was being put on by the DNC and would feature Tom Perez.

At the first stop of the “Unity Tour,” the crowd booed loudly at the notion that they were there to support Perez.

Then, there is the matter of Sanders email list which he still has not given to the DNC despite the significant help the names and information would provide the struggling party.

Just two stops into the “Unity Tour,” the Democratic Party is proving that they are far from united, and with losses in special elections mounting, the party looks in worse shape than it did on following November’s election.
