Following the U.S. killing Iranian terror master Qassem Soleimani, the left officially lost their minds.  Apparently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) didn’t get the memo.

In her first attempt at a presidential-sounding Twitter response, she called Soleimani a “murderer.” She quickly received the wrath of the leftist Twitter mob and, predictably, issued a new take that did not include the word “murderer.”

Here is her initial response:

https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1212951889060470788?ref_src=twsrc^tfwThe left went absolutely insane that she called a murderer a murderer.

Well, you get the idea.  Apparently, the blowback was too much for Warren.

The Washington Examiner reports:

But even acknowledging that the man responsible for hundreds of American deaths and for orchestrating the Iranian strategy in the Middle East was a bad guy was too much for the Left to handle. Liberals quickly jumped on Warren’s comments, attacking her for employing the language used by hawks to justify war.

Fading in polls and dipping in fundraising ahead of the Iowa caucuses, Warren has little room to alienate the Left. So she then released a follow-up statement stripped of any criticism of Soleimani, and instead focused exclusively on attacking President Trump for an attack that she rebranded as an “assassination.”

First, this was not an assassination. This was a lawful military strike conducted in a war zone in which the United States is legitimately established. Soleimani was an enemy commander who had acted against the U.S. repeatedly, and the U.S. was well within its rights to take him out. The only act of war was Iran’s by putting one of its commanders in Iraq to help plan and direct attacks against U.S. troops, which was Soleimani’s intent.

Labeling Soleimani’s death an assassination is not only dishonest; it’s damaging — not to Trump, as Warren certainly intended, but to the U.S.’s foreign policy interests as a whole. As commander in chief, Trump has the right and the responsibility to direct the military and defend this nation’s interests. That leading politicians are openly questioning, and thus undermining, that authority is ridiculous, though unsurprising. This is Trump, after all, and most Democratic politicians would do or say anything to send a few jabs his way. (Of course, few of these Democrats, if any at all, were willing to say the same of President Barack Obama when he ordered the attack on Osama bin Laden, or when he unilaterally pushed through the Iran nuclear deal despite Congress’s opposition).

Here’s her “new and improved” response, including the reference to the strike as an “assassination”:

After caving to the Twitter mob, Warren defended her use of the word “assassination”:

She has completely lost all sense of reality and is even refusing to prioritize killing terrorist leaders if she were elected.

And when pressed for a reasonable comment on her dual(ing) statements, Warren switches to talking about President Trump. Because Orange Man Bad.

Warren does this all the time. She’ll say she believes something, find out that potential voters disagree, and then change her beliefs accordingly. This time it played out in hours. On Twitter. For all the world to see.
