Reince Priebus reminds me of a crybaby…

The chairman of the Republican National Committee threatened on Monday to refuse to partner with CNN or NBC on any presidential primary debates if the two networks move ahead with plans for television projects on Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Reince Priebus, the chairman, said in letters to the two networks that he considered the projects to be a “thinly-veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election.”

According to the report by Steve Benen, Priebus has also said he intends to hold a “binding vote” at the RNC’s summer meeting to block NBC and CNN from partnering on party sanctioned debates if those two networks go ahead with their planned television projects on Hillary Clinton. What’s more, RNC went on to say presidential candidates would be “punished” – without elaborating on how exactly they’d be punished – if they agreed to participate in debates aired by the networks.

I think this tweet by former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe sums up Reince Priebus’s threats best:

    This is GREAT! Get studios to go ahead with documentary on Hillary and have presidential debates with Dems and Independents. I’ll bet my house the RNC recants!

    Any RNC complaint can be countered with attempted censorship accusation on the Repubs.
