On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s All In, DNC Chair Thomas Perez stated that the “entire freshman class” of House Democrats “is spectacular.”
Asked if the tremendous amount of attention paid to the freshman class, particularly controversial newer members such as Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a good thing or a bad thing for the Democratic Party, Perez responded, “I think the entire freshman class is spectacular. They reflect America. How many people served in the military? Look at that. Look at the diversity, the first two Native American women.
“And what we need to do is make sure that the American people see the entirety of the freshman class. Because, they are, indeed, spectacular,” he continued.
