Biden campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon insulted Republicans during a Tuesday interview where she also praised Joe Biden's call for unity and healing in America.
O'Malley Dillon – who was previously the executive director of the Democratic National Committee and will become Biden's deputy chief of staff should he be sworn in – made the comments on an interview with Glamour magazine.
"The president-elect was able to connect with people over this sense of unity. In the primary, people would mock him, like, ‘You think you can work with Republicans?' I'm not saying they're not a bunch of f---ers. Mitch McConnell is terrible," she said. "But this sense that you couldn't wish for that, you couldn't wish for this bipartisan ideal? He rejected that. From start to finish, he set out with this idea that unity was possible, that together we are stronger, that we, as a country, need healing, and our politics needs that too."
She went on to describe politics as a "relationship" that requires compromise, and said she believes Biden can "break down" the "negative, polarized electorate that politics has created."
🔦 O'Malley Dillon joined Biden's team in April, driving the campaign forward with record fundraising numbers. In addition to overseeing the DNC, she previously worked on the campaigns of former Vice President Al Gore, former President Barack Obama, and Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke.
