After 16 years, the 2000 presidential election is still being debated by Democrats and liberal media outlets.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed Friday that Al Gore — not former President George W. Bush — was victorious in that election, and her interviewer, MSNBC reporter Hallie Jackson, agreed.
Wasserman Schultz, who was chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee before her resignation after the party’s national convention, said that she was confident that Florida would be among those states to propel Hillary Clinton into the White House.
Jackson countered that Donald Trump has been surging ahead in recent polls, especially among working class voters, which Clinton “has been unable to do so far, even given, again, the ground game.”
The congresswoman said that this wasn’t indicated by an average of polls and that she is confident that the Sunshine State will go Democratic, “just as it had in 2012 and 2008.”
“Not in 2000 or 2004,” Jackson reminded her.
“In 2000, it absolutely was blue,” Schultz claimed.
“Of course,” Jackson said. “2004, 2004.”
“The Supreme Court elected the president,” Schultz said. “Al Gore won the state of Florida in 2000, although not the presidency.”
If there’s one thing Democrats love to do, it’s re-write history.
