AOC, Hillary Defend Biden Official After She Calls Republicans ‘F***ers’

'I used some words that I probably could have chosen better...'

Democrats jumped to defend Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s deputy chief of staff after she called Republicans “a bunch of f***ers” while calling for cooperation between the major political parties.

Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s former campaign manager who will become his deputy chief of staff if he is elected, insulted Republicans after claiming Biden wants to bring unity back to the country.

“In the primary, people would mock him, like, ‘You think you can work with Republicans?’” Dillon said.

“I’m not saying they’re not a bunch of f***ers,” she continued. “Mitch McConnell is terrible. But this sense that you couldn’t wish for that, you couldn’t wish for this bipartisan ideal?

Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also chimed in:

Several top Democratic donors, however, were reportedly upset with Dillon and urged Biden’s team to force her to apologize.

“For those of us who, from Day One, bought into Biden’s calls for civility and a return to normalcy, this isn’t just beyond the pale—it’s plain stupid,” said one Biden donor.

Dillon did issue a response on Thursday, but it was not an apology.

“I used some words that I probably could have chosen better,” she told Politico. “But the point that I was really making is an incredibly important point. And that really is about the president-elect and why he was supported by over 81 million people, and what they were looking for.”
