Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) is without question one of President Donald Trump’s most unapologetic and loudest detractors in the U.S. Congress, and if you follow her Twitter feed, you will see how much she dislikes him.
But even though Rep. Wasserman Schultz’s disdain for Trump is without reproach, it’s not enough for her Democratic primary opponent Jen Perelman, who will find a way to swipe at the veteran congresswoman, even when she is criticizing the president.
In a recent tweet, Wasserman Schultz excoriated Trump, stating,” Trump drags down our democracy, small businesses and healthcare system with his attacks” against the United States Postal Service, and questions when Republicans were going to “stop” his “dictatorial power grab.”
Trump drags down our democracy, small businesses and healthcare system with his attacks on @USPS.
Now he admits it’s all to boost his re-election. When will the @GOP condemn and stop this dictatorial power grab? https://t.co/1dhWWqh2Ju

Perelman responded to Wasserman Schultz calling her an enabler of Trump, questioning her support for the existing Obamacare healthcare system and not the proposed “Medicare for All” plan put forth by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D).
You just voted YES for a $50 BILLION increase to Trump’s DHS.
You also voted NO on improving our healthcare system, which also affects our small businesses.
You do not oppose Trump, you enable him.
It’s time for #JENerationalChange in #FL23. #JenBeatsDebbie https://t.co/aOGOojJWfK

Perelman is putting up a spirited fight this primary season but it’s going to take that and a lot more to defeat Wasserman Schultz, who is beloved by old-timer or legacy Democrats in South Florida, has the advantage on election night.
