Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has billed himself a crusader for equality throughout his years as a career politician in Washington D.C., reportedly told Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) that a woman cannot win the presidency behind the scenes.
Sanders and Warren, two socialists who have been long-time colleagues, met in December 2018 at Warren’s apartment to discuss their presidential ambitions. They allegedly agreed to be amicable throughout their upcoming presidential runs, refusing to engage in dirty politics against one another. They have largely lived up to their pact, but that may be changing in the crucial days to come.
Warren told Sanders that she would be the best candidate to take on President Trump due to her strength in appealing to female voters and her credibility pertaining to economic matters. This is when Sanders reportedly replied that he believes a female candidate does not have what it takes to defeat President Trump in 2020.
Sanders categorically denies the allegations, which he claims were based on second-hand sources that were not in the room while he was engaging in the conversation with Warren over a year ago.
“It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win,” Sanders said.
“It’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016,” he added.
However, Warren released an official statement claiming that Sanders did in fact make the sexist comment during their private meeting.
“Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed,” Warren said in the statement.
Sanders’ alleged assertion may be bearing out if polling is any indicator. With the Iowa caucuses only weeks away, Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden are surging while Warren lags behind in fourth place. She cannot even get ahead of South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who was a relative unknown before making the decision to run for president.

Despite her lack of momentum, Warren is not giving up on her ambitions for the presidency. She is continuing to push identity politics as much as she possibly can, as it is her calling card going back many decades to when she infamously faked being an Indian to advance in politics and academia.
Warren said last month during an appearance in Las Vegas, NV that she has “lived enough of my life with men, and it’s mostly been men, telling me to sit down and be quiet.”
“Over and over, we are told that women are not allowed to be angry. It makes us unattractive to powerful men who want us to be quiet,” Warren wrote in a campaign email last year that had the subject line: “I am angry and I own it.”
But based on her recent performance in the polls, the U.S. voting public, including the extremist Democrats, do not want a shrill woman to lead the country in the Oval Office. Sanders may have been correct with his alleged statement that a woman cannot defeat President Trump. The Democrat Party is showing itself to be the party of old white men when the rubber meets the road!

Michael Bloomberg SLAMMED in Dem Debate Pile-On
The billionaire was targeted by the Democratic primary field.
Michael Bloomberg was a target for the Democratic Primary field during his first debate stage appearance on Wednesday, being roundly criticized by several of the other five Democratic candidates participating.
The debate, held in Las Vegas days before the Nevada caucuses, differed from previous events on account of the smaller number of candidates.
Bloomberg has skyrocketed to a competitive second place in most polling of the Democratic primary, seeming to siphon most of Joe Biden’s support and staking out a claim as the Democrat to take on Bernie Sanders. The New York billionaire, who has not appeared on the ballot in the first two primary states, is aiming for a string of Super Tuesday victories.
Elizabeth Warren may have landed the most concrete blow of the night on the record-setting campaign spender, calling out Bloomberg for a history of insensitive remarks targeting women. She also went on to question Bloomberg about reports of him forcing women to sign non-disclosure agreements after sexually harassing them.

It’s probably safe to say that Bloomberg was the biggest loser of the night. The debate represented the first opportunity for the billionaire to face criticism from other Democrats, and he generally failed to answer the ire of the primary field with anything too meaningful.
Bloomberg’s biggest moment of the night may have been when he called out Sanders for owning three homes, likening him to the billionaires the democratic socialist frequently criticizes.
BLOOMBERG: "What a wonderful country we have! The most well-known socialist in the country is a millionaire with three houses."
SANDERS: "Well I live in Washington."

Sanders hit Bloomberg on his controversial record of instituting ‘Stop and Frisk’ policing practices as mayor of New York City, claiming that the program was discriminatory against Black and Latino people.
Even Buttigieg, a candidate who is well-funded by billionaire campaign donors, hit Bloomberg for his blatant attempt to buy the Democratic nomination. The somewhat more rancorous tone of the debate made previous walk-in-the-park debates appear to be a snoozefest.
Considering he at least implicitly is the frontrunner for the nomination, it’s probably safe to say Bernie Sanders exited the debate as the de facto winner. Sanders holds a resounding lead in polling for the upcoming Nevada caucuses, and a win coupled with a blow to Bloomberg’s campaign could give him the momentum required for a dominant Super Tuesday performance.
