Jonathan Swan, the national political reporter for Axios, lamented to MSNBC’s popular “Morning Joe” on Monday about the many difficulties that lie ahead for the Democratic Party going forward in future election cycles.
Swan explained to the hosts what to expect from those difficulties, even going so far as to call the Democratic National Committee’s brand “a disaster.” He explained that the Party overall is still looking for direction and this is worrisome to members of the Party and those who do not support the Trump agenda.
Swan further said, “I think one of the biggest problems is, the DNC brand is a disaster. I mean, the Party brand has been so wrecked over the last year. WikiLeaks has played into that and what you hear when you talk to people on the Hill is that all of the energy is outside of the Party. It’s kind of diffuse–you know, groups like Indivisible and Resist rallies. I mean, there’s a whole lot of energy out there and Mark’s right, a lot of it channeled into the Ossoff race and that was a very disappointing result. They’re still looking for a direction. There still is no clear direction for this Party. You hear such different figures floated for 2020. A Cory Booker presidency would be very different from a Liz Warren presidency and the Party needs to figure that out.”
Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough host “Morning Joe” on MSNBC from 6 a.m. – 9 a.m., Monday – Friday. Their show has gotten a massive rating boost since the election of President Donald Trump.
