You can cancel Elizabeth Warren off the list of potential Dem unity candidates after last night’s debate. The Bernie fans are mad:
I can imagine Warren helping herself this week with some of the voters who drifted to Buttigieg and Klobuchar. But the “unity candidate” thing isn’t really tenable. Sanders diehards who might have been reluctant about her before now see her as a backstabber.

As we write this post, #WarrenIsASnake is the No. 1 trending topic in the U.S.:
#NeverWarren was also trending earlier:

Did Dems think there was going to be any other outcome? Bernie’s fans haven’t changed:
It must be nice for the #NeverWarren folks to no longer have to pretend they were ever going to vote for anyone other than Bernie.

Even funnier? They’re mad at CNN, too:
I see that #CNNisTrash is trending #2 in California.

You see, CNN dared to ask about why Bernie thinks a woman can’t be president:

Welcome to the party, guys:
CNN has long been viewed as anti-Sanders, but this is incredible. After asking Sanders to repeat his denial, Abby Phillips asserted that Sanders was lying: “Senator Warren, what did you think when Senator Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?”

CNN: Senator Sanders, did you sick a sack of sickled slippers?
S.: No I didn’t do that.

And it will only get uglier:
As we saw tonight,
➡️ the media will not be on our side.
➡️ many politicians we thought were on our side will not be on our side.
All we have is us & the media will lie about who is ‘us.’

And this is spot on: If Biden falters, the Dems are in big, big trouble:
If the establishment insists on getting Warren the nomination, if Biden fails, they are not going to get Sanders supporters to back her, even if he endorses her. @GarlandNixon @Stranahan. #NeverWarren #LyingLiz #PrimaryWarren #WarrenIsASnake #CNNisTrash.
