Bernie Sanders vs. Elizabeth Warren on female candidates

Bernie Sanders might not know if women can win elections. Elizabeth Warren is sure who does most of the losing...men.

On the debate stage, Sanders again denied Warren’s charges to the primetime audience

Bernie Sanders’s and Warren’s campaigns have been moving toward open warfare this week due to a comment Bernie either did, or did not, say to Warren in 2018 about whether a woman could be elected president. The episode reached full boil at the 1st of the year Democratic debate with this bizarre exchange that has the everyone talking. For decades, Warren lied about her ancestry and claimed to be Native American to gain professional and political leverage. Warren went as far as contributing recipes to an Indian cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow” and identified herself a Cherokee Indian under each. During her 2012 Senate campaign, she justified her claim to Native American heritage because her aunt often remarked that Warren had “high cheek bones like all of the Indians do.”

Warren herself has a far from perfect history with honesty

In the fall of 2018, Warren released the results of a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry after years of mocking by her political opponents including President Donald Trump. The release of the test results however, backfired on the Massachusetts senator when they failed to offer any proof that Warren is of any Native American heritage at all, let alone Cherokee. Warren’s DNA test only showed there was “strong evidence” to suggest she may have one Native American relative 6 to 10 generations in her past. The test revealed that even if Warren were to have a Native American relative, she would be anywhere from 1/65th to 1/1024th Native American. This is less Native American ancestry than the average American.

In 1988, Sanders publicly made the case that a woman could indeed win a presidential election

Warren’s new call for honesty comes as the senator is under fire for allegedly making up a story that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders told her in December 2018 that a woman could not capture the White House. The story, published by CNN on the eve of the seventh Democratic debate, relied only on anonymous sources who claimed to have knowledge of the conversation. Warren followed the story by making the charges on national television herself. Sanders has categorically denied them as “ludicrous.” On the debate stage, Sanders again denied Warren’s charges to the primetime audience, upsetting the Massachusetts senator who confronted Sanders while still at the podium immediately following the conclusion of the night’s main event.

    Warren lied. Sanders has been promoting the idea of a woman president since the 1980s, including telling Warren she should have run in 2016, but Warren didn't have the spine to step up against Hillary.

    A women did lose to Trump already. Both Warren and Sanders would destroy the country with their handouts. The good thing here is that Trump is going to mop the floor with these tools. Easily. Leftist ideas have always and will always be a path to servitude. The sheeple vote for their own chains.

    Bernie Sanders: 1. Stated way back in the 80s that a woman could be president. 2. Encouraged Elizabeth Warren to run in 2015. 3. Acknowledged that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. Brut: "bErNiE SaNdErs MiGHt nOt KnOw iF wOmEn CaN wIn eLeCtIoNs."

    I been reading and with the Democrats trying to impeach Trump. Now most of them who are running for president. Will have to sit in the trial and not be in the campaign trail. It works out for great for Joe Biden. Seems like a set up by joe biden and Nancy Pelosi to get them out of the way. I would be upset if I was Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders or any of the other ones.

    The mainstream media and the political swamp hate Sanders, and Warren has come up with a lot of baloney since entering the race (being part Cherokee, getting fired for being pregnant, sending her kids to public schools, etc). I'm taking this one with so many grains of salt, my doctor will have to talk to me about my blood pressure.
