Fox News anchormen Steve Doocy and Pete Hegseth could not contain their laughter when they heard former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s version of what unfolded during her appearance at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
After Wasserman Schultz and other Democratic officials were exposed by a WikiLeaks hack which showed an apparent attempt to subvert Sen. Bernie Sander’s presidential bid, Wasserman Schultz resigned from her position as DNC chair. When she attempted to speak to Florida delegates at the DNC a day later, she was booed loudly by protesters who shouted “Shame on you!” and held signs.

Despite resigning as chair, Wasserman Schultz is still running for reelection in a Florida congressional race. She told Florida’s Sun Sentinel about her experience at the convention. “There were about 300 people at that breakfast, and the overwhelming majority of people in that room were enthusiastic supporters of me and my message,” she said.
As Doocy and Hegseth replayed the audio and video from the interview, they could not contain their amusement at her comments. “Yes, very enthusiastic,” said Doocey.
“You could feel it!” Hegseth added sarcastically.

Wasserman Schultz also told the Sun Sentinel editorial board she stepped aside because “Russian spies” stole DNC emails and “whipped so many into a frenzy that it became a distraction.”
