Funny she is just releasing this now when it allegedly happened in 2018 as she had been dropping in the polls since her Medicare for all proposal. Warren has a long history of lying to get ahead folks.
Warren has repeatedly invoked tales of her family’s economic struggles growing up on the campaign trail, in part to sell blue-collar voters on her appeal to middle-class solidarity, although she’s now a multimillionaire. Yet it turns out she may have fibbed once again on her family background. Warren’s brother told the Boston Globe, “My dad was never a janitor," and he said it makes him “furious” that Warren has repeatedly claimed otherwise on the campaign trail.https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/editorials/elizabeth-warrens-lies-are-a-pattern
As the Washington Examiner's Becket Adams noted, “Elizabeth Warren sure does lie a lot about her background.” The real question, though, is why does she mislead the public so often?
Perhaps the senator knows that she can’t sell far-left policy proposals, such as socializing the healthcare system via “Medicare for all” without ample embellishment. So, too, an individual as intelligent as Warren must know that her own background, as a millionaire whose children attended private school, doesn’t fit easily with her soak-the-rich rhetoric.
Maybe she doesn't want to let her voters in on the secret about her campaign: There's nothing populist about it. Commentators often lump Warren's run in with that of Bernie Sanders. But Sanders's base comes from the young and the working class, while Warren's base is mostly highly educated baby boomers who surely feel a warm glow from the belief they are part of some populist uprising.
Of course, Warren's defenders will likely point to Trump's long-documented record of being unconcerned with the truth and even outright lying. "Trump is worse!" they cry. They're not wrong on the facts, but this hardly counts as a defense of Warren.
"Whataboutism" is not an actual argument. Surely Democrats must hold their own to higher standards if they're going to make Trump's dishonesty a central issue with any credibility at all.
Recipes, her background, her heritage, her getting fired the list of lies is long. I know people hate Pres. Trump for lying and it is despicable when he does so but so too is this stuff.
I definitely want those in need to have access to healthcare, childcare and educational opportunity. But I like Pete's, Amy's, Joe's, Bloomberg's approaches --- being more pragmatic than the approaches offered by Liz or Bernie
I agree they are more plausible. I don't mind paying taxes as they are necessary to pay for programs, roads and the like. But there is tremendous government waste across the board.
So are the Dems trying to take Bernie and Warren out with the timing of the impeachment trial. Were I Bernie I would resign and keep running for President. This certainly helps Biden. I could understand if this is the case because Bernie caucuses with the Dems but is an independent in name. Really, he is a blatant socialist/communist guy so are they trying to take him, if so do they worry about isolating his supporters. I personally think he could win 2 out of the first 4 primaries if they were held today.
