Maybe it’s because we haven’t been following Elizabeth Warren from campaign stop to campaign stop, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard her story about how much she loved her part-time teaching gig, which she before said she was fired from for being visibly pregnant. She repeated the tale at Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, but if you listen closely, the way she words it leaves open the question of whether she was fired or whether she left for other reasons — which more closely aligns with earlier interviews.
Even PolitiFact doesn’t back her up on the claim that she was fired for being visibly pregnant, and the Washington Free Beacon pulled up documents from the time showing that the school board approved a contract for a second year of teaching.

Warren claims she was fired for being pregnant.
FACT CHECK: records show she was offered another year teaching contract WHILE she was visibly pregnant.
Is the record lying? Or is Elizabeth Warren lying? #DemDebate

Elizabeth Warren told her teacher story again. She was hired as an interim teacher for a teacher out on leave. Warren admitted she got pregnant and decided to change careers.
How many times can tell getting fired because she was pregnant story. Poor little Elizabeth.

No, Elizabeth Warren was not fired from her first teaching job for being "visibly pregnant."

Now Elizabeth Warren just repeated the lie about her boss "wishing her luck" and "sent me packing" because she was pregnant.
That of course is bullshit. Didn't happen. But hey, she figured it would be cool to use to attack Michael Bloomberg.
Unbelievable lies tonight.

It's like they are trying to one up each other on who can tell the biggest whopper of a lie…

It’s quite an accomplishment to be the biggest liar on this particular stage, but Warren is excelling at it.

How many times has she repeated this lie now?
— Edmond H Wollmann (@Altairtheflyer) February 26, 2020
Too many to count, but no one calls her on it in the mainstream media, even though there’s video.
‘Holy mackerel’! Washington Free Beacon obtains records strongly suggesting Elizabeth Warren lied about being fired for being pregnant https://t.co/SqSHnvdtic
