    Who's Lying?

    We've got Elizabeth Warren saying that Bernie said not too long ago that a woman could not win the presidency. And, we've got Bernie denying it. So, which one of them is lying?

    Re: Who's Lying?

    I think it's probably a miscommunication. Apparently they were discussing their strengths and weaknesses vs Trump and Bernie probably said it would be hard, or even impossible, for a woman to beat Trump due to sexism. Warren takes it as him saying a woman can't win the presidency and so there it is.

    Bernie pulled a Trump; said something he didn't mean.

    Not that it matters, because both, while running against each other at the moment, will support the other when the time comes, I find Bernie to have more integrity than Warren.

    Re: Who's Lying?

    I don't know anything about this, but obviously Bernie Sanders knows a woman can be president because he endorsed Hillary Clinton after losing to her in the Democratic primaries. He did not just promise to vote for her or say we can't let Trump win, but said at the DNC why she is highly qualified for the job.

    Re: Who's Lying?

    I believe Bernie does not think this. At most, my guess is he said something along the lines of a man might have higher chances than woman vs Trump

    I believe Warren might be exaggerating or even took it to mean more than what he said.

    Either way, this is a big nothing burger that the media unfortunately fell for and escalated.

    Re: Who's Lying?

    I think it's possible that a conversation happened in which two people came away with their own interpretations of it. I respect both people as inherently honest and fiercely principled, and it's easy to imagine that they both had their own take on whatever was said.

    In any case, this is a little soap opera that will be forgotten in a few days when Trump tries starting a shooting war with Canada or something.

    Why does a Trumper even care?


    • Trump isn’t interested in stopping Russian 2020 election interference, only in covering it up. •
