The Democratic National Committee chairman is questioning his predecessor's claim that she could have initiated efforts to replace Hillary Clinton as the party's presidential nominee with then-Vice President Joe Biden.

Tom Perez says it's "quite frankly ludicrous" to suggest Clinton was ever incapacitated in way that would have allowed Donna Brazile — under DNC rules — to start a process to replace Clinton last year.

Brazile, the former interim DNC head, says in a memoir being released Tuesday she considered the move after Clinton collapsed while leaving a 9/11 memorial service in New York City in 2016. Clinton later acknowledged she was suffering from pneumonia.

Perez tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that Clinton was a "tireless candidate." He says people who read Brazile's baseless charge "are going to perhaps start wondering about other claims in that book."
