What we just broke on air : Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in a private meeting in December 2018 that he did not believe a woman could win, according to four sources. Full story here, including Sanders' aggressive on-the-record pushback
New: Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in private 2018 meeting that a woman can't win, per four sources. ⁦⁩ scoops
This Warren story is mind-blowing. If there isn't more to this, this is about as dirty as politics gets.
Whether you believe Sanders said this also rests on whether you believe Warren would hear a sexist comment like this and not only decline to disclose it but also publicly praise the character of the person who made it for over a year.
I’ll keep posting these numbers until people stop saying that women and POC can’t win. 1. Barack Obama (2008) 69,498,516 votes 2. Barack Obama (2012) 65,915,795 votes 3. Hillary Clinton (2016) 65,853,514 votes 4. Donald Trump (2016) 62,984,828 votes
Obvious bullshit. Not remotely believable. — Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in private 2018 meeting that a woman can't win, sources say
Ok, so: 1. smear campaign is officially on 2. should be able to easily say, Bernie did or didn't say this 3. If it's Bernie's opinion that, BECAUSE OF SEXISM, a woman couldn't win in 2020, that's not sexist. (Could simply be wrong)

I guess Bernie is the ultimate Bernie bro.
LMAO, yes Bernie, it's soooo "ludicrous." "It's not good enough to say !'m a woman! vote for me!" - Bernie Sanders
"Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win."
Terrible headline for Sanders. After their spat yesterday, I wonder if Warren finally allowed her people to leak this?
According to a new CNN report, Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in a private 2018 meeting that a woman can't win the presidency.
Reminder that Bernie has always been ill at ease with the growing identity politics movement within the Dem party. “That evening, Sanders expressed frustration at what he saw as a growing focus among Democrats on identity politics...”
Pretty sure this is BS. (i.e. "bullshit," not "Bernie Sanders")
Would you believe I hadn't even seen this story when I wrote that thread??
Here the dems go again, with another bullshit scheme against Bernie Sanders. Unreal.
I don't have a dog in this race. But the claim that said a woman couldn't win makes no sense. Clinton had just beat Trump by, what?, 3-million votes in 2016.
