There is just a bit of a crack in the unity Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have shown so far.
Tempers started to flare prior to the debate when Warren found out the Sanders campaign was talking trash about her when they were going to door-to-door.
As a rebuttal, Warren revealed a 2018 conversation with Sanders where he allegedly told her a woman could not win the presidency in 2020.
This all came to a head both during and after the debate earlier this week.
It took some time, but CNN was able to recover the tense conversation that took place between Sanders and Warren right after the debate.
Because the feud was in the headlines so much, the moderators had no choice but to address the alleged conversation.
Sanders, as he had done previously, denied ever having said a woman could not win the election.
Warren probably had the best line of the night, calling out the 10 failed elections from the men on stage with her, stating that ONLY the women on the stage had won every election they entered to that point.
Sanders tried to deflect during the debate, insisting this rift is what the Trump campaign wanted to see, and he would not allow that to happen.
After the debate, the two could clearly be seen in a tense confrontation, but because it was not direct audio, nobody knew what they were saying and nobody wanted to talk about it afterward.
When CNN dug into its backup audio systems, that conversation was finally revealed, showing Warren boldly calling out Sanders for his comments.
Warren stated, “I think you called me a liar on national TV.
Sanders responded, “What?”
It should be noted Sanders had extended his hand to shake Warren’s hand, but she refused at this point.
Warren shot back, “I think you called me a liar on national TV.”
Sanders then stated, “You know, let’s not do it right now.
“If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion.”
Warren then replied, “Anytime.”
Sanders then quickly interjected, “You called me a liar. You told me… all right, let’s not do it now.”
We Need Answers
This entire exchange is part of the problem with the media and protecting the Democrats from looking bad in public.
Clearly, one person is right here, we just don’t know who that person is.
Warren has lied repeatedly throughout this election and Sanders, well, he will say just about anything, but the American people have a right to know who is being dishonest here and who is telling the truth.
The Democrats may get away with this nonsense during the primary, but believe me, they will not have this luxury during a general election.
Every time Sanders and Biden get asked tough questions, they refuse to answer and brush off the question as a Republican talking point or as being offensive. In the process, they are creating more problems, because even the liberal media is starting to call them out for it.
They both come off as dishonest and/or scared to face the truth.
While Sanders and Warren have still not reportedly settled this issue, they will have plenty of time to do so over the next few weeks while they sit together in the Senate during the impeachment of Donald J. Trump.
