Elizabeth Warren Says Bernie Sanders Told Her A Woman Can’t Win The Presidency, But He’s Telling A Different Story

(Tea Party PAC) – With the Democratic Party presidential primary right around the corner and the field still crowded with candidates, it’s pretty normal for backbiting and mudslinging from within the party to start up, however, the verbal fisticuffs are about to heat up between two unlikely rivals in Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

The whole thing started when Warren stated that Sanders told her that a woman couldn’t win the presidency. Sanders, however, is telling a much different story and denying what Warren said.

Here’s more from BizPac Review:

With voting about to begin, it’s somewhat fitting that the only real excitement in the 2020 Democratic primary race is being driven by a “he said, she said” dust-up between Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Sanders has inched into the lead in the Hawkeye State, just 20 days before the 2020 Iowa Caucuses, and he was broadsided this week with a CNN report alleging that he told Warren during a Dec. 2018 meeting at her apartment in Washington, DC, that a woman could not win against President Donald Trump.

The story cited four people as sources: two people Warren spoke with directly soon after the encounter, and two people familiar with the meeting.

Responding to the report, Sanders dismissed the allegation as “ridiculous.”

“It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win,” Sanders said. “It’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016.”

Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir was adamant that the report was “a lie,” and he welcomed Warren coming out to dispute it.

“We need to hear from her directly, but I know what she would say: That it is not true, that is a lie. I welcome her coming out and disputing this and putting this to rest,” he told CNN.

Well, Shakir was set for disappointment, as Warren’s campaign responded Monday evening with a statement from the senator to say the report is true and that she does not want to discuss it any further.

The champion of women’s rights dismissed an allegation of sexism as “differences on punditry,” which may or may not be a reflection of the ferocity of Bernie’s Army when sufficiently riled.

“Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed,” the statement said. “I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.”

“I’m in this race to talk about what’s broken in this country and how to fix it — and that’s what I’m going to continue to do,” Warren continued. “I know Bernie is in the race for the same reason. We have been friends and allies in this fight for a long time, and I have no doubt we will continue to work together to defeat Donald Trump and put our government on the side of the people.”

With a Democratic debate set for Tuesday night in Des Moines, the last debate before the Iowa caucuses — conveniently taking place on CNN — the friendship may be put to test as the candidates are certain to face questions about who’s telling the truth.

There is also a Politico report from last week that Sanders’ campaign allegedly circulated a script for volunteers to tell people that Warren’s the candidate of the elite and that “she’s bringing no new bases into the Democratic Party.”

Warren responded by telling reporters she felt “disappointed,” and said that “Bernie is sending his volunteers out to trash me.”

Sanders has faced allegations of sexism and harassment from his 2016 campaign and apologized to women. His 2018 Senate campaign also had a mandatory briefing for all staff about a “zero-tolerance” sexual harassment policy.

“I certainly apologize to any woman who felt that she was not treated appropriately, and of course, if I run, we will do better next time,” Sanders said back in January.

The reaction on social media is not faring well for Warren — which is probably why she is eager to brush the controversy aside now that Sanders has been dinged.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

With the massive support that Sanders is getting after this comment by Warren, it seems pretty clear that folks aren’t big fans of hers and with good reason. The woman lied and pretended to be Native American when she wasn’t and used the advantages that came with that to further her own career. Then, on top of that, she allegedly lies about Sanders here? That’s not a good look for someone who wants to be trusted with the nuclear football codes.

  1. Where is ‘celebrity death match’ when you need it? $5 says she could take him in the octagon-very easy to get a ‘sleeper’ hold on him.

  2. These two are fighting over inane issues that middle school kids argue about. If Pocahontas gets up-set about what she thought Crazy Bernie said and she gets the nod to go against DJT on the general, he will eat her alive. She is more thin-skinned than the Dems accuse DJT of being.

  3. I’m laughing because they both hate rich people and yet they are both rich but no worries Elizabeth because neither one of you will be president, you Pocohontas are a liar and Bernie has one foot on a banana peel and the other in a grave but it did make me laugh a little when you gave it to him last night!

  4. Bernie go back in your parents basement you Socialist ass. Your ideas of President are so far out. Take the rest of your Democratic Party with you to Antarctica and freeze

  5. If her mouth is moving, she is lying. She isn’t the woman who could win the presidential nomination regardless of whatever Republican she would be running against. She has earned the distrust of most Americans.

  6. After all the lies Elizabeth Warren told about being Indian, being let go from teaching job because she was pregnant and sending her son to public school. I don’t believe Bernie Sanders said about women can’t win the presidency. It just show Elizebeth Warren will lie about anything to get an advantage. Of all the Democratic candidate, Bernie Sanders is the only one original and doesn’t treat “lying” as an honorable Hubbies.
