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.

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.
