    Hilarious. She answered a direct question. And what is "it" that she's making up? That been treated differently by at least one Senator because she's a woman?

    Got to love the projection at work too. There are 1,000 good reasons not to name names, times, places of this "different" treatment, especially unless it's on HD video. But partisans hate her so she can't win, which is understandable.

    I see Tres liked this, but she's yet to come up with an option other than 1) lie (giving Warren some benefit of the doubt that at least ONE Senator treated her differently at some point in the past few years because she's a woman) or 2) full scorched earth, naming names, times, places, details.

    BTW, this might be a record length for a thread about what someone said in an interview with (AFAIK) not ONE critic of what this person said on camera actually quoting words she actually said.

    She would have made up that she was treated differently. She didn't elaborate because she would run the risk of libel if it was found that her answer and details were knowingly wrong. OR she was treated differently and it was by her fellow Democrats (aka. "Pulling a Gillibrand") so she would have been hurting her party while she is still climbing the ladder.

    If she was treated poorly by Republicans then she would have been flowing with details.

    "Lying" about being part Cherokee falls on the "harmless" end of the scale in my humble opinion. There isn't a person, certainly not a politician, who hasn't 'lied' more times that he or she can count about something. Someone will have to point out to me why I should care about this claim of Warren's of her part Cherokee heritage. I've made similar claims 100 times over the years with no more than what my mother has told me as evidence. If that turns out to be false, does that really reflect on my character?
    As the Clintons and Obamas understand very well, their supporters are prepared to accept all lies, with the size of them not of any consequence whatsoever.

    By the way, are women in this country supposed to just bob their heads and agree with everything other women say? Do you think every woman should agree with, oh let's say, Michelle Bachmann when she says abortion should be illegal, simply because she's a woman, and they're all women?
    Of course I don't expect all women to agree and all that nonsense. But if you are going to criticize her perhaps you should quote her and address what she said. Every criticism thus far has been a total fabrication about what they think might have happened. Nothing about the minute tiny bit she actually said.

    And of course its a left right issue. She's a strong lefty, all right wingers in here are criticizing her without even addressing the actual quote, then digging up false fox news talking points from a couple years ago when she ran for office to further explain why they hate her not to mention that these right wingers would be the first to embrace Sarah Palin crying about how she is being attacked by any and everything every single time she plays the victim card. Its been a right vs left thread from its obvious first page.

    Yep, those are the only two possibilities....

    I'm trying to figure out if you all are having a hard time believing the 'treated differently' claim (that seems impossible), or if the proof goes like this: In political arena, (1) Claim + Liberal = Lie. With the additional mathematical identity, (2) Bad Behavior = Democrat. QED.

    Pavlov could use this as an example of his theory. Seeing the name "Elizabeth Warren" is the bell, and they react like a pack of rabid dogs even though there's NOTHING THERE...

    She's an absolute hack and a hypocrite.

    Its important to call out trash like her early before she fools even more people with her hackish narratives.

    Blame Yahoo. I quoted their story.

    You can also download CNN, and Wapo, and Salon, and any number of the other outlets that ran the same story...

    No, it's a male-female issue, unless you don't know what this thread is about? She never said she was treated differently because she was a Democrat. Did she? Did Gillibrand say that? No they did not. So it's only a left-right issue because, well to be honest, the posters on this board on the left ran to her defense, while the ones on the right didn't run to her defense.

    She needs to put up names or more details if she expects any thinking person to believe her. It sounds like she's whining. She promotes the idea that Republicans are sexist while at the same time claiming that she is a victim of sexism in Congress, but when pressed for names or details, she won't give them. Either she's lying and this is a political ploy, or the sexists are people she wants to protect - and somehow I doubt any Republicans are on that list.

    But be partisan and believe her. I don't accept a politician's word as the gospel. Most people don't either.

    Wouldn't you think a vocal person like Senator Warren would want to expose the sexists in Congress?

    Yeah, that is as clear as day. There are never enough victims for the left, especially for someone like Warren, who really preys on the victim type. They are essential for jerks like her. Here, let me fight for you! (and, let's ignore the real problems the left has caused). It never hurts to try and create more victims.
