On the CNN debate stage Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders flat-out denied that he ever told Elizabeth Warren that a woman couldn’t be president, a hard-to-believe rumor reported this week.
But the debate moderator next asked Warren to respond to Sanders’s statement that a woman can’t win — essentially, accepting the premise of the rumor as if it were established fact. Warren responded, “I disagree,” implying, without any evidence and despite the denial, that he did ask it and saying, “This question has been raised, and it’s time for us to attack it.”
The article goes on to state the following:
These are just shady underhanded tactics on Warren’s part. She knows Sanders is not a sexist, they’ve been friends for decades, and he’s been publicly saying a woman could be president since 1988. It’s just sad and dishonest that Warren would let this mischief stand, but unfortunately, dishonest politicking is more of the same from the Massachusetts Democrat.
Polumbo says Warren lied or misled before, and lists the following instances:
- “about having Native American heritage”
- “about her father being a ‘janitor’”
- misled voters after promising to “focus on the Senate and not run for president”
- made misleading statements about her children attending public schools, as “they also attended expensive private institutions“
Polumbo also accused Warren of repeating “the untruth time and time again, including at tonight’s debate, that she would institute socialized healthcare for all without raising taxes.”
