#NeverWarren Trends to Top Spot After Her Enormous Debate Fiasco

Mish

Elizabeth Warren made a fool out of herself after the debates Tuesday eve. She refused to shake Bernie Sanders' hand.

Credibility Gap

Leading up to the handshake gaffe, Elizabeth Warren made the claim Bernie Sanders told her early in the campaign that a woman could not win the 2020 election.

Sanders vehemently denies the allegation. Thus we have a Giant Credibility Gap.

As Current Affairs reports, Warren’s claim is highly dubious because:

  1. Bernie Sanders has a long history of saying the opposite of what Warren is accusing him of saying, and thinking a woman can’t win is incompatible with his political worldview.
  2. Elizabeth Warren has a long history of saying untrue and distorted things for politically opportunistic reasons.

Iowa Debate Fiasco

Things got to a head following the Iowa debate on January 14 when in a otherwise round of candidate handshakes, Elizabeth Warren refused to shake Bernie Sander's hand.

CNN Stunt Against Sanders Backfires

Check that out.

CNN asks Bernie if he said "a woman can't be president". Bernie says no. Then CNN asks Warren how she felt when Bernie said it, thus taking sides as if he did say that.

Warren a Liar and a Fraud

Bernie Sanders is an misguided socialist (at a minimum they all are), but at least he believes in what he says. He is also the genuine anti-war candidate, bar none.

Warren claims she is "capitalistic to my bones". She also claims to be a native American Indian when DNA tests prove otherwise.

Good Riddance

Warren likely did herself in with that handshake stunt assuming her faltering campaign was not over already.

So, good riddance to a liar and a fraud.

Audio Addendum

Just after I finished posting the above, an audio turned up.

Warren: "I think you called me a liar on National TV."

Sanders: "You called me a liar"

Warren and Sanders about to be sidelined by impeachment trial which will damage all involved, no matter the outcome, but of course it will keep them off the trail during early primary voting.

Biden is the victim of Trump attacks which have resulted in Trump being impeached. (Indeed, his candidacy might have been mounted in order to create this Perfect Lawfare Storm scenario.) So he is sitting pretty - unless he does get called as a witness which is highly unlikely given how many RINO types there are on the R side of the equation. Indeed, Rand Paul warned today - and I suspect he's right - that they will vote to hear witnesses the D's want (Admin officials who actually witnessed what went down versus all the witnesses they paraded out who only heard things second hand), but not vote to hear witnesses T wants (like the Bidens because of the Burisma bribes which Biden partially admitted on TV).

Probably Trump will survive but quite possibly with well over 55 votes against him, which will play really well 24/7 in the Press during the entire election cycle. Republicans will have a hard time portraying T as an innocent falsely accused President when a bunch of R's voted to remove him from office.

Going to be a bloody and nasty campaign.

In any case, Bernie and Lyin' Lizzie are toast. Biden still standing (perhaps), but the floor is still open for a solid moderate. Butty might get VP. He IS a Rhodes scholar, after all, and they tend to do well in the White House, being controlled by all the right people (unlike poor NYC developer Trump!). It seems impossible, but we might still get Clinton or Obama to run. Then it will be: Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump, Obama/Clinton (then Trump again?!)...

Only 10 more months of this circus! Whether the country chooses red or blue, 2020 will keep the bankster's paradise going. More debt, more printing, and more MIC.

At this point, people should want their favorite team to lose so they won't be blamed for what's coming.

The genuine anti-war candidate is Tulsi. Bernie balks often, often repeating CIA talking points. Get this straight immediately, Mish. Yes, he has voted against illegal wars but the talking points is what trips him up. His campaign advisors are either infiltrated or incompetent. He needs to go on the offensive. Attack Biden & Warren. Stop being the nice guy. This is his downfall & ultimately the reason he will not win. Also, I'm convinced the DNC is fully on board for Trump winning if their 'establishment' puppets, Biden, Warren, Buttigieg cannot win the nomination. Anything but Tulsi, Yang, or Bernie. Mother Phucking corporatists that the DNC are.

Popcorn time? or Nap time? If the Senate allows Trump’s defense team to call witnesses, bet on Hunter because they’ll try to prove there was a legitimate reason for requesting cooperation of the Ukrainians. In return, the lynching party will get a republicans who are resentful of President Bombastic to paint the worse possible picture of his naturally abusive style. Otherwise, it’ll be a rerun of innuendo and unprovable accusations accompanied by legal motions and mind-numbing procedural votes.

I’m hoping for maximum chaos, drama, intriguing, and career-ending revelations for all establishment creatures! It’ll probably be the snooze option that’s implemented.

Elizabeth Warren Is the Democrats’ Unity Candidate Her nomination would offer the best hope of bringing together the party’s warring factions. By Michelle Goldberg | Opinion Columnist Jan. 13, 2020

i'm very disappointed in what Warren did. It was extremely low brow and wreaks of desperation. Warren is now officially over.

Warren ended her run. She just doesn't know it. She did manage to take Bernie off message for a few days. Who wins? Joe Biden

Even if Sanders said it, so what? He has an opinion that you can freely agree or disagree with.

"CNN Stunt Against Sanders Backfires"

This is election meddling by the mainstream media.

The MSM, Google, Facebook, Twitter are a threat to free and fair elections in the U.S.

Why wasn't she over when she released her DNA results? Doesn't anyone remember how it was signaled as 'proof' of her claim initially?

I noticed that when The Bern extended his hand for a shake, Dizzy Lizzy gave him the sideways thumb, meaning "get lost". Seems the best thing for the Bernie campaign is Lizzy. Right after that Bernie got a donation avalanche.

Seriously, who cares? I look back over my life all the way to Eisenhower and it hasn't mattered who lives at 1600 PA one damn bit. One endless economic war after another. Unimpeded deficit spending. We haven't had a free election in my lifetime. This ain't gonna be the year, Mish. PS: Say howdy to the Saints in St. George for me.

Talk about sexism...if a guy had done that (like being a prick like trump during the GOP debates) then its all good, suddenly Warren thinking that Sanders is a DBag not wanting anything to do with him is a big issue! Talk about two weights two measures!

Don't know if Sanders actually made the statement that he is accused of but he could have meant that a woman could not beat Trump, not that a woman couldn't do the job of president.

Trump is going to drag this campaign into the mud and come at whomever the Dems nominate as a streetfighter. Most woman aren't up to that sort of gutter fighting. Most men aren't either.

I think it's likely she had read the writing on the wall and realized she wasn't going to win the nomination, nor get it in a brokered convention.

So she chatted with the DNCs powers and reached an agreement... stay in the race to keep Bernie from consolidating the far-left vote (which would win the nomination for him), throw a few grenades at him -- and she gets the VP slot when the brokered convention gives the nomination to Biden.
