“Stop insulting our intelligence.”
On Monday, Elizabeth Warren took to the senate floor and made a series of bizarre accusations about the awful series of Planned Parenthood videos. Senator Warren apparently believes this is all part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to take away women’s rights.
Maybe progressives should find a different politician to clone.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough called Warren out for hypocrisy and for suggesting that anyone who objects to the horror contained in the Planned Parenthood videos is against women’s rights.
Even the left-leaning Huffington Post took notice:
Morning Joe To Elizabeth Warren: ‘Stop Insulting Our Intelligence’
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Tuesday slammed Sen. Elizabeth Warren, accusing the Massachusetts Democrat of conflating support for women’s rights with support for Planned Parenthood.
“You can be against the funding of Planned Parenthood without being against the support of women’s health,” Scarborough said. “Nice try, Elizabeth Warren.”
Planned Parenthood is currently embroiled in controversy over highly edited videos purportedly showing a senior staffer at the organization speaking openly about selling fetal body parts. Warren took to the floor of the Senate Monday, where Republicans proposed a bill that would stop all federal funding to the health care organization.
“The Republican scheme to defund Planned Parenthood is not some surprised response to a highly edited video,” Warren said. “Nope, it’s just one more piece of deliberate, methodical, orchestrated right-wing attack on women’s rights.”
Scarborough was having none of it, though.
“For Elizabeth Warren to try to conflate the right of a woman to choose with the horrors and the callousness and the grotesqueness of what was discussed over lunch [in the video] is really unfortunate,” he said Tuesday on Morning Joe.
Notice how the Huffington Post writer referred to the videos as “highly edited.” This is one of the left’s favorite talking points, even though the videos have been released in their entirety.
