‘I thought a woman could win; he disagreed’: Elizabeth Warren issues a statement about her meeting with Bernie Sanders
At last, we no longer have to go on “confirmation” and scoops from intrepid journalist Shaun King. On Monday evening, Elizabeth Warren issued a statement about her December 2018 meeting with Bernie Sanders, and in her recollection, she thought a woman could win while Sanders “disagreed.”
In response to a great deal of questions we’ve had today, below is a statement from Elizabeth Warren: pic.twitter.com/PdBCHJQCJE

Doubling down on the big lie. Brilliant move!

Whether or not "a woman" can win in 2020, I've become convinced @ewarren cannot. This is disappointing.

I cannot support @ewarren anymore. Sorry!

I WILL BET $8 MILLION CASH MONEY that it went more like:
"I told him i think *I* can win, he disagreed."

excellent execution, from planted story to finish. I truly did not think Warren had it in her but she does. she would prefer to destroy Sanders than let him (and the progressive movement) win

What a terrible campaign Warren has run.
— Patrick Bruck #NotMeUs (@scott_satzer) January 14, 2020
And in an instant, Senator Warren betrayed everything she ever stood for.

I have no dog in this fight between kooky socialists, but Bernie is on record as far back as the 80's saying a woman could win the presidency. Warren, on the other hand, is a known liar. https://t.co/ERRBxlBUCa

"I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further" after my campaign leaked it to the public and I then vouched for it without providing any detail. https://t.co/Qrmt2QH6Bm

"I have no interest in discussing this thing my campaign leaked because it's backfiring" https://t.co/LmyRy3sJrT

she has backpeddled on this account

Anyone who thinks that this was not a coordinated effort by Warren's team to go after Bernie is out of their minds.
I have no idea what was said in this December 18 meeting, but I do know that Warren has changed her story more than once when looking to score political points. https://t.co/gRrxicvjiw

The upcoming battle between Sanders and Warren is going to be the most passive aggressive war you'll ever see.
— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) January 14, 2020
The debate should be fun.
"I have no interest in discussing this any further…" – because she knows others will do her dirty work for her. https://t.co/dglip4JICh

Warren is . . . Not handling this well
— Steve (@soapboxsteve) January 14, 2020
There is no real context or specifics given to what he was disagreeing with or how he disagreed
This whole thing is really smarmy and gross of Warren and her team
— AllBall (@cyborgmatthew) January 14, 2020
This is outrageous.
Elizabeth is promoting slander of her "friend" for politcal capital.
— Max (@scrambled3gg) January 14, 2020
lol what a snake.
— @darnk (@DunkJack514) January 14, 2020
somehow this doesn't ring true given Bernie's statements re: women winning for over 3 decades

Wow, now I don’t know who I’m gonna vote for said no one ever.
— Woody Cox (@WoodyCox3) January 14, 2020
What is so surprising in this? @ewarren has been using the sexist card, and the metoo movement, all along…. if she wins the presidency, it will literally be: garbage in, garbage out.
— Nabil (@mattat76) January 14, 2020
Why share this, then? Why now?
— Howitzer of Good Intentions (@TheHottestCarl) January 14, 2020
She wants to keep it private and doesn’t want to discus it but she is dropping this the day before the debate ??? Who believes this shit people. Lol.

So, no context?
— Liberal (@The__Liberal) January 14, 2020
"I thought a woman could win; he disagreed." and then "I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further."
So she talked about it enough to give a one word line about it with no context. How did he disagree? What did he say?

The funny part is, whoever's account is correct, it doesn't even matter. And yet this will be covered endlessly.
— TheCommonToad (@The_Common_Toad) January 14, 2020
LOL! 2 uber socialists who are unelectable in the general going at each other. Will the corrupt dementia laden Quid Pro Joe weigh in on this?
— Trent Trotter (@TrotterTrent) January 14, 2020
I've been waiting for this little tit for tat between the two of them to start. This should be amusing.

Pocahontas has fabricated another story!

Pass the popcorn.
Now we’re cookin’: Shaun King said he ‘spoke to a source’ who said that Elizabeth Warren ’embellished’ details of her meeting with Bernie Sanders https://t.co/eFe68MxYPa
