It couldn’t possibly be that Warren is actually inauthentic — so it must be Republican sexism!
She's 1024th authentic

Absolutely. Women like… Mitt Romney.
Is the NYT really just like three wokebros in a shared apt in Hoboken https://t.co/ZWShnP0erL

The authenticity of every political candidate ever is questioned literally all the time. Only when it’s asked of Elizabeth Warren is it considered an “old, sexist trope.” https://t.co/APIjsAr9Vt

And we probably haven’t seen anything yet.
and if Warren had been more truthful, these attacks would bounce off harmlessly.

I don’t get it and the article never addresses why the concept of “authenticity” is in any way related to gender. https://t.co/xeNpsGo0lQ

Why ruin a narrative by actually discussing the headline in the body of the article?
