First, I’d like to say that I don’t think alcoholism is a joke. I’ve seen what it can do to friends and family and it’s disgusting. That said, Clinton Campaign Chairman Terence Richard “Terry” McAuliffe seems to love the booze and it’s way of keeping him away from reality:
BRZEZINSKI: And, joining us now, Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe looking very good in his Hawaiian shirt or maybe Puerto Rico shirt.
MCAULIFFE: Puerto Rico.
BRZEZINSKI: How are you, Terry? How are you?
MCAULIFFE: I just got back at 2:00 this morning, and Mika, I want you to know, I brought you back your own Bacardi Gold from Puerto Rico. You and I are going to share this together and celebrate another big win by Hillary Clinton.
BRZEZINSKI: Weeehhhh-heeeheeeeheeeoookay! I’m ready for that Terry, I’m ready.
MCAULIFFE: And good news is, tomorrow night we are going to have Hillary Clinton’s celebration in New York so I will be with her, I will be on set with you wednesday morning, in person.
BRZEZINSKI: Oh, and Terry, Terry, bring the bottle. okay?
MCAULIFFE: We’ll have it to celebrate Hillary, the nominee of the Democratic party.
BRZEZINSKI: Wow. Okay. There would be some not so good news, though, to bring that, I’m sorry to bring you down a bit and please don’t start drinking that because that’s for me. But the delegate count doesn’t add up, Terry?
BRZEZINSKI: Especially now, more added toward Obama.
MCAULIFFE: Yep…Listen, what I’ve said and I’ve said it on your show for a while. By the time the process is over, it is now clear that Hillary Clinton has gotten more candidates more than any person ever running for president. We’re ahead in the popular vote. We added 142,000 last night. What’s important last night is this was 100% Hispanic primary, and once again, Hillary won by more than two to one. A key, core constituency for the fall election. Who’s the best in the general election? Hillary Clinton. You have had that map up. Look at that map and those states we have to win this fall. Hillary Clinton has won all of those states that we have to win this fall. So last night was another big win. Add that to last week in Kentucky, the week before West Virginia, the week before in Indiana, then Pennsylvania, Texas, Ohio. She has been on a roll.
BRZEZINSKI: Okay, Terry, I mean, you’re good.
