Honestly, we ultimately don’t really care if Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren end up devouring each other out of the Democratic presidential race. That said, though, we can’t help but get the distinct impression that Bernie’s kind of getting the shaft from a lot of the media. Media like Washington Post “conservative blogger” Jennifer Rubin, who has managed to crawl impressively far up Elizabeth Warren’s backside and still not be able to see who Warren is underneath it all.
Here’s Rubin’s take on the drama unfolding between Warren and Sanders over Sanders’ alleged comments about women not being able to win presidential elections:
He either forgot the remark — because it was such a commonplace sentiment at the time — or now is lying about the exchange. He needs to be pressed on the issue, asked why Warren would make something up https://t.co/FREEdM1ltR

Clearly there are no possible explanations other than Sanders forgot about the remark or is lying about it.
No other possibilities here, guys……

Rubin does at least manage to admit that Warren hasn’t handled it well, either, but only in the sense that Warren hasn’t been tough enough on Sanders:
Yes, Warren’s reluctance to go after Sanders is definitely her biggest flaw.
How could you know that?
Warren isnt exactly squeaky clean when it comes to being completely truthful.

Why would Warren make something up? Are you serious right now?

She makes up all kinds of crap. What are you thinking???
— ❌Sally Tanner ❌ (@sally_tanner) January 15, 2020
Because Warren makes things up on the regular?

We honestly can’t remember the last time Jennifer Rubin had credibility. On anything.
That story dropping the day before the debate looks as authentic as a toupee with a chin strap. But of course you're pushing this…
