Former Democratic National Convention chair Donna Brazile compared her time working for the party during Hillary Clinton's campaign to Hurricane Katrina in a recent interview on ABC's This Week program.

The Kenner native was on the show Sunday to promote her new tell-all book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House.

Host George Stephanopoulos jumped right into the interview by bringing up statements Brazile made in the book, including her confession that she almost considered replacing Clinton and running mate U.S. Senator Tim Kaine on the party ticket with former Vice President Joe Bidden and U.S. Senator Cory Booker after Clinton fainted at a 9/11 ceremony in September 2016. 

After mentioning criticism Brazile has received for these statements, he then asked if Brazile regretted anything from her time with the DNC.

"George, this was worse than Hurricane Katrina in terms of emotional toll," Brazile said in response. "But do I regret standing up for what is right, helping Hillary Clinton, helping the Democratic Party? ... No. I wish I could have done more, George."

Brazile also got candid with Stephanopoulos when asked if her book coming out helps the DNC moving forward, saying "those who are telling me to shut up, they told Hillary that a couple of months ago. You what I tell them, go to hell. I'm going to tell my story."
