‘Brutal!’ Wasserman Schultz was booed off the stage at her own delegation event in Philly

The rancor between Clinton and Sanders forces has already begun.

As outgoing Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz attempted to speak with the Florida delegates, the Florida Congresswoman was booed off the stage at a breakfast meeting on the opening day of her party’s convention Monday.

Wasserman Schultz announced in a statement Monday that she would resign from her position as the party’s chair at the close of the Democratic National Convention.

“We need to make sure we move together in a unified way,” she to the booing crowd.

As she attempted to be heard over the din of protest, some delegation members stood on chairs holding signs saying, “emails,” “No!,” and “Thanks for the ‘help,’ Debbie,” as others shouted “shame.”

Wasserman Schultz defiantly told the booing throng that although she was resigning as party chairwoman, she wasn’t going away.

“You will see me every day between now and Nov. 8 on the campaign trail and we will lock arms and we will not stand down,” she said, before addressing the hecklers themselves.

“We know the voices in this room that are standing up and being disruptive, that’s not the Florida we know. The Florida we know is united, the Florida we know will continue to create jobs,” she said.

The emails mentioned in the signs refer to Democratic messages that were hacked by GUCCIFER 2.0 and published by WikiLeaks, showing that the party worked in concert to see that the former secretary of state received the presidential nomination.

Those leaked emails led to her resignation.

Shortly after that, Clinton announced that she would be joining her campaign team as its honorary chairman.
