Obama Bros Call into Question Whether Dems Should Support the DCCC

"Hey DCCC, get your shit together," Crooked Media's Jon Favreau said on Monday.

“Pod Save America” hosts Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor, and Jon Lovett, who all previously served in the Obama administration, bashed the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Monday and called into question whether Democrats should support the DCCC going forward.

The hosts took particular offense with the DCCC’s decision to drop opposition research against Democratic candidate Laura Moser, who is running in Texas’ Seventh Congressional District.

“I have no idea what they were thinking here,” Favreau said.

Favreau noted that Moser’s husband worked in the Obama administration and that the hosts knew him well.

Vietor called the DCCC “morons” for how out of context the research they planted was.

“It is so personally and professionally stupid and offensive,” Vietor added. “I really think they walk it back and fix this before everybody completely loses faith in the organization.”

Favreau then seemed to suggest that action like this by the DCCC would call into question whether “Pod Save America” will tell their audience to support the DCCC in the future.

This could prove problematic for the DCCC, as “Pod Save America” has reportedly been downloaded 175 million times.

“Hey DCCC, get your shit together,” Favreau concluded. “I don’t want to get annoying emails from the DCCC being like ‘oh here’s what really happened.’ No, tell everyone what really happened. Be public about it. Don’t fucking talk to us.”
