Head of DNC Agrees Democrats ‘Cannot Play Fair’ And Win The 2022 Midterms

Democratic National Committee Jaime Harrison has agreed with a Democrat MSNBC contributor that his party “cannot play fair” in the midterm elections if they want to win.

The exchange happened during and appearance on MSNBC when host Tiffany Cross played a video of firebrand contributor Roland Martin saying that the Democrats have to forget the rules, Mediaite reported.

Cross had a one-on-one discussion with Harrison for her show The Cross Connection during which they covered the midterms and how Democrats can overcome what looks like a wave for Republicans in November. They covered a variety of angles, including their shared belief that the “mainstream media” isn’t doing enough to get the party’s message out there.

 After saying she agreed about the media covering Democrats unfairly, Cross shifted to Republicans, saying, “let’s talk about the fascists on the other side.”


She brought up remarks from Roland Martin earlier in the show, who said that Democrats have to go to “war” to change their fortunes ahead of the election. “You cannot play fair with people who don’t play fair. There are no rules,” he said.

After playing the clip, Cross asked the DNC chair for his thoughts, adding, “I felt like that was a good road map.”

“Let’s talk about the fascists on the other side. So I hear that, but I do think there are a lot of people – because you know, like we were just talking about, you and I, we consume, you know, eight papers in the morning. We look at the minutia of politics and most Americans are not doing that. And there are still a lot of people who feel disconnected from the party or maybe even disappointed in the party. Fair enough. I want you to take a listen. We had Roland Martin on at the beginning of the show,” the host said.

“Brother Rolo,” Harrison responded.

“Brother Rolo Is never shy about giving his opinion,” Cross said.

“No I know, I do,” Harrison said.

“So he had a lot to say about what he thinks Democrats should be doing. I want you to take a listen to get your thoughts,” the host said.

“Sounds good,” Harrison said before the video played.

“You’ve got to have President Joe Biden stop being scared of Senate Joe Manchin and go make the argument in West Virginia and go to the rand parts of Mississippi and Alabama and say, this is what we have done and these folks voted against it and this is how we have delivered. They’ve got to be willing to engage in war. You cannot play fair with people who don’t play fair. There are no rules. The other side has shown that they will do whatever is necessary in order to win. So you’ve got to say, America, when they didn’t care about you, we did,” Martin said in the video.

“What are your thoughts? I felt like that was a good road map,” Cross said.


“It is a good road map,” Harrison agreed.

It is astounding that the man who heads the Democrat Party is seen admitting that his party cannot “play fair” and win in the midterms.

“The party is beyond doomed if this is the advice provided by a known cheater and advocated,” Joe Conha said.


“They don’t even hide it anymore,” Jon Nicosia.

“There’s the presupposition that they ever played fair. Calling Larry Elder a white supremacist comes to mind….and they fell for it,” another Twitter user said?


“Why should 2022 be played any different than usual? Of course they don’t play fair,” another said.

“It only works if the entrenched, stodgy Republican Elite permit it to. Which, unfortunately, is their Achille’s Heel,” another said with a photo of Senate Minority Leader and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell
