#NeverWarren Trends on Twitter as Civil War Between Bernie and Pocahontas Heats Up
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reportedly made a pact for neutrality before beginning of the 2020 presidential race, but the agreement seems to be fraying at the seems as the campaign heats up in the crucial weeks before the Iowa caucus.
After the Warren campaign alleged that Sanders told her that a woman cannot beat Trump (an allegation Sanders vehemently denies), Warren had the audacity to claim that Sanders called her a liar on hot mic audio following the presidential debate on CNN earlier this week.
“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren can be heard saying.
“What?” Sanders responded.
“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” she repeated.
“You know, let’s not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion,” Sanders said, to which Warren replied, “Anytime.”
“You called me a liar,” Sanders continued. “You told me — all right, let’s not do it now.”
Sanders’ supporters are not happy with Warren’s attack, perceiving that Warren is leading the charge for Sanders’ scalp as he rises in the polls. Many Sanders’ supporters have adopted the hashtag #NeverWarren on Twitter and have launched their revolt against the phony Indian candidate.

Berners look at what Warren did last night & ask yourself who she will throw her delegates to at the DNC even when Bernie beats Biden. Sanders can actually win the primary & still be robbed by a Biden/Warren deal based on fake “unite all wings of the party” excuse. #NeverWarren

I'm so tired of the people criticizing the #NeverWarren hashtags by saying that this is what got us Trump in 2016.
That's simply not true: this hashtag symbolizes accountability, and what elected Trump the last time around was the opposite of that.

Warren supporters are striking back against the #NeverWarren movement, chiding Sanders’ supporters and accusing them of enabling Trump by taking a principled stand.
#NeverWarren is trending because the supporters of @BernieSanders are upset that Warren beat him at the debate last night. Y’all are acting like bullies on the playground and have learned absolutely nothing from 2016. You are going to get Trump re-elected & you don’t even care.

Suppose Warren becomes the nominee, will the #NeverWarren crowd elect to sit out of the election & help Trump win? If yes, they are part of the problem & their selfish absolutism and utter disregard for the country and citizens who bear the cost of Trump's hate are clear to see.

The aggressively stupid and totally fringe NeverWarren hashtag is trending because of the people who are pointing out that it’s stupid. Don’t let a few dummies ruin Bernie or Warren for y’all. They are both stellar leaders and humans.

Some deranged liberals are even saying, without providing any evidence, that the #NeverWarren movement is powered by evil Rooskie agents!
I'm calling BS on the authenticity of #NeverWarren.
Go ahead and search it. I haven't seen any *real* prominent progressive accounts pushing it. It started taking off between 5:00 am and 7:00 am EST when all of you MFs were sleeping.
Have we really learned nothing from 2016? pic.twitter.com/VnSMvB36Qx

#NeverWarren means the Russian disinformation troll farm is at it again, and their willing participants, the poorly educated, are happy to spread the disinformation.
Russia chose the GOP for a reason. They are ignorant, uneducated, and easily manipulated.

Even after an operative for the Sanders campaign was revealed as an anarcho-communist threatening death and destruction, Sanders continues to rise in the polls. He even pulled ahead of Vice President Joe Biden in an online poll conducted by Reuters/Ipsos released on Thursday:
The online poll, released Thursday, shows that 20% of registered Democrats and independents said they would back Sanders over 11 other candidates to run in the general election against President Donald Trump, an increase of 2 percentage points from a similar poll that ran last week.
Another 19% supported Biden, 12% said they would vote for Senator Elizabeth Warren, 9% backed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and 6% said they would support Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana.
Sanders and Bloomberg have increased their level of support in each of the last three Reuters/Ipsos polls starting in mid-December, while support for Biden, Warren and Buttigieg has remained flat.
The poll also shows that about one in five potential primary voters remain undecided. And among those who have picked, nearly two out of three say they are open to changing their minds.
Sanders, an independent who built a national network of fervent supporters while running for the party’s nomination in 2016, has consistently ranked among the most popular candidates since he entered the race.
The poll shows that standing does not appear to have been hurt by his recent confrontation with Warren over Sanders’ views of women and politics.
Sanders has become a huge problem for the Democrat establishment yet again, and it doesn’t look like the arrows from Pocahontas are going to be able to stop his momentum.
