Wasserman Schultz doubles down on stupidity; gets a new POUNDING on social media

Having flubbed the question once, it’d be a safe bet to assume that Debbie Wasserman Schultz would be better prepared the next time she’s asked to explain the differences between Democrats and socialists.

But the Democratic National Committee chairwoman flailed away a second time Sunday when NBC’s Chuck Todd, host of “Meet the Press,” hit her with the very same question MSNBC’s Chris Matthews did on Thursday, answering much as she did then.

And looking just as stupid as she did the first time.

After playing the embarrassing clip from Thursday, Todd noted that Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders is “an unabashed socialist,” then asked Wasserman Schultz how a socialist differs from a Democrat — only Todd did not press her as Wallace did,  allowing her to filibuster with prepared talking points.

Wasserman Schultz’s encounter with Matthews produced a slew of social media comment criticizing the South Florida congresswoman, and Sunday’s “Meet the Press” interview had the same effect.

National Fox News host Charles Payne posted on social media that the reason Wasserman Schultz “still” can’t explain the differences is because there are “NONE.”

Here’s Payne’s tweet and a sampling of responses from Twitter:
