Warren Goes #StopBernie – Lashes Out After SC, Vows Convention Fight
Bernie supporters turn fury on Warren in response, call her fraud, backstabber, snake
Former Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE) convincingly won the South Carolina Democrat primary on Saturday with 48% of the vote, while Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) came in an embarrassing fifth place with only 7%. For context, anti-Trump billionaire Tom Steyer came in third with 11% and promptly dropped out.
An obviously rattled Warren took to the stage in Houston where she ranted and raved, attacking her Democrat opponents and generally seeming a bit unhinged.
While she began by graciously congratulating Biden on his impressive win, her speech quickly became a train wreck. She declares that her goal is to amass as many delegates as she can (she got zero in South Carolina) and head to the convention.
Warren just now, as she’s 5th place in #SCprimary, on why she’s staying in the race: “we want to gain as many delegates going into the convention as we can.”
No more talk of winning states. Rhetoric is now just about winning some delegates and staying til a contested convention pic.twitter.com/XCOgGS6hse

She lashed out at her Democrat opponents, and in the process managed to throw fire on the slow-burning feud between herself and socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Part of this has to be a reaction to Bernie actively campaigning in Massachusetts and polling ahead of Warren in her home state. He is also fundraising far more than she is; the AP reports: “Sanders raised stout $46.5M in February; Warren got $29M.”

Toughest Warren on Bernie I've heard: "This crisis demands more than a Senator who has good ideas, but whose 30-year track record shows he consistently calls for things he fails to get done, and consistently opposes things he nevertheless fails to stop."

Let’s be clear abt what this PAC is. It’s a stop Bernie PAC. Warren isnt projected to win a single state. Do u really think donors would throw in millions at this point bc they believe she can win? No. It’s because they believe bolstering Warren will keep Bernie from a majority. https://t.co/k1mlLBwgGQ

Elizabeth Warren responded to her fourth straight loss Saturday night by taking direct aim at her rivals — including Bernie Sanders.
“This crisis demands more than a senator who has good ideas, but whose 30-year track record shows he consistently calls for things he fails to get done, and consistently opposes things he nevertheless fails to stop,” Warren said in her toughest assessment of the Vermont senator during a speech in Houston Saturday night.
Warren’s campaign seems to suggest that she is now trying to eat into Bernie’s delegate count and #StopBernie.
NEW: In memo, Elizabeth Warren campaign manager @RogerLau basically admits the Warren candidacy is now a convention effort.
“no candidate will likely have a path to the majority of delegates”
“Milwaukee is the final play.”
“ultimately prevail at the national convention” pic.twitter.com/UDscXO7VYF

Elizabeth ? Warren's campaign is now admitting she is staying in the race in order to stop Bernie Sanders from being president. That is its goal.
There is no excuse for so-called "progressives" to defend her. Warren is a tool of right-wing billionaires.pic.twitter.com/k651hdPvtL

Bernie supporters were already seething after she accused him of sexism and for claiming he sought an “unfair ‘advantage’ in the Democratic primary with his about-face on the question of how many delegates a candidate must amass before clinching the party’s presidential nomination.” Last night’s statements appear to have been the final straw for them.
If you are a progressive and you defend or have any sympathy for Elizabeth Warren at this point then you are a clown

Being in the lead and then falling so dramatically has unleashed a bottom of the barrel level of desperation in Elizabeth Warren.

Signs of a woman who is about to lose her home state to a real progressive. #BernieIsMyPresident #DropOutWarren

Truth must be spoken here. Warren is a liar. A trickster. A turn-coat. A fabricator. An untrue friend. An opportunist. Following her would make me the same. She is not even my second choice any longer.

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Well, let’s not get in the way of this food fight. Please beat each other up!
Liz must not be feeling the chances of VP are high on the Sanders ticket or something.
I hope everyone tries to burn Sanders to the ground and he still gets a plurality and the convention becomes an absolute slugfest.
This is what losing looks like.
Warren and her campaign manager may talk bravely about staying in the race til the convention – but reports are that she’s out of money, and no one is going to contribute to a campaign going down the tubes. Does she think all of those staffers are going to work for free for her for the rest of the year?
I wrote that, and then remembered the note in the article about the $14 million contribution she won’t disclose the source of: How hilarious would it be if it turns out that Bloomberg gave her that money? And ordered her to attack Burnie with it?
Mini Mike a Lizzie funder?
Well truth is stranger than fiction……
“Everyone stop serving Lizzie that beer!”
She’s a tool of right wing billionaires, doncha know?/
No VP for you, Stabawatha.
I’m hoping that bernie has a lead in delegates, but not enough for a first round win.
Then the super delegates connive and toss bernie out and bring in some other loser.
Pretty sure bernies brown shirts would riot and burn down most of the dem cities.
And why hasn’t bernie fired his bestest ever friends who were on video talking about guillotines, gulags, re education camps and violence against the dem convention host city?
As with seen with AOC, that Greta girl, and others, the “woke” left is impatient and probably won’t accept an establishment nominee — any more than the antiwar activists in 1968 accepted Humphrey when they wanted McCarthy, McGovern, or the martyred Bobby instead.
Bwahhahaha – I am glad pop corn is not fattening
Let them fight!
It’s the pivo (beer)that’s fattening
I notice Trump is mostly just collecting clips to use in ads. He isn’t hiding the fact that his support of Bernie is sarcastic.
Lol I can’t believe there’s someone out there that actually thought Warren is a tool of right-wing billionaires.
What level of delusion do you have to rise to for that little gem to dance in your brain?
Anyone who says anything that’s disagreeable, or not precisely in line, is “corporate “.
Or a fascist. Go figure. When you have only a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Well, they got the billionaires part right.
Trouble is, Warren’s platform is: 1. Orange Man Bad, and
2. Give me all your life, liberty, and means to pursue happiness, and I will eliminate him!
She makes Nurse Rached look sweet.
What a dishonest, deranged scumbag.
And those are her good points.
It’s actually a reasonable strategy at this point. Her best chance is a brokered convention where the delegates decide neither Bernie nor Biden can win, and they anoint Warrennas a compromise. Not a great chance of happening, but it could.
I’ve been scratching my head trying to figure out why she’d go scorched earth, and I your theory may be right. But if it does end up as a brokered convention would the D-Overlords pick someone that’s gone so dark and nasty?
It’ll be interesting to see where the D’s stand after Super Tuesday.
“gone so dark and nasty?”
Remember Hillary has been consorting and giving Lizzie advice.
Hillary: “Hey Lizzie I’ve got some advice for you, or would you prefer to get…..”
I thought Biden could have won in 2016, as he would not have lost states like PA. Despite his evident mental decline, I still think Biden will be harder to beat than Bernie and that the Dems will go with him if they have to. Warren’s only hope is that her delegates plus Bernie’s add up to more than 50%, so she can cut a deal with Bernie on the first ballot. Think of a Biden/Michelle ticket, with her becoming President in a year or two, by the 25th Amendment, if he has dementia.
Milwaukee may be very interesting … inside the convention center and outside of it.
The press will likely frame Bernie’s stormtroopers (if they mention them at all) as “peaceful and passionate citizens standing up for their beliefs.”
Bernie supporters will be dressed as Antifa thugs.
Liawatha is going to go on the warpath. But she’s going to repeat the history of her (alleged) ancestors. There’s nothing but a Trail of Tears for her down that road. Not that I care all that much. I would not survive four years of lectures by Princess Spreading Bull. All of the aggravation of Hillary Clinton with half the charm.
If Warren’s arms were tied down, could she still talk? That woman sure does a lot of arm waving and fist clenching …
Must have ADHD.
Shadow Boxing Bernie…who is equally unhinged. Warren is said to be likable outside of the limelight and politics. Not so much Bernie. He is always rude and obnoxious.
If they really want to stop Bernie someone should tell Hillary that Bernie has evidence.
Evidence of what you say?
It doesn’t matter. Just tell her he’s got evidence.
“…seeming a bit unhinged”
She IS unhinged. When has she ever been hinged? Hint: never.
Cannot believe people are sending $$$Millions to the Fake Indian. Her Tee Pee in Cambridge is valued at $4 Million. Do the donors actually think Warren will spend all of that wampum on the campaign?
If you want to have a laugh today, watch PDJT mocking bloomberg and fauxcahontas.
He is a very funny guy:
Shrieking Crow was born unhinged. ….And I think she leaned this week that Bernie was playing her and has no intention of selecting her as his VP nominee.
Another Demoncrat who believes they are entitled lie, cheat, and steal everyone else’s money.
Seems pretty clear and simple to me:
Follow the money.
RCP Polls give
Bernie 29.6 % of the National Vote
Biden has 18.8%
Bloomberg has 16.6%
Warren has 11.8%
Now: Take ‘Lies-a-bit‘ (if I am spelling her Indian name correctly) Warren’s 11.8% and add it to -any other number on the board.
Plurality for Bernie; Parity with Bernie for either of the others.
To paraphrase Rod Blagojevich , Ms. Warren’s position my be summarized as:
“I’ve got this thing and it’s (expletive) golden, I’m not just giving it up for (expletive) nothing.”
A Woman could make a nice chunk of change giving her endorsement.
Yeah, she’s Ross Perot to Bernie’s Bush Sr.
The establishment will want her to stay in the race as long as she can siphon votes away from Sanders and deny him a first-ballot victory. Thus the otherwise inexplicable donations.
that and a position if any one of the Dems happen to beat Trump.
Her shrill voice sounds like a nail scratching a chalkboard.
Almost as bad as the Hildebeast.
Warren represents the ugly, embittered and spite-filled visage of a narcissistic, totalitarian apparatchik-demagogue, when denied the power to which she believes she is entitled. Crone Hillary was cut from the same miserable bolt of cloth. These are the types of reprobates who have no place in government.
“same miserable bolt of cloth” …. Nice, but how about “same deplorable bolt of cloth?” Thus spake a Deplorable.
her Super PAC simply refuses to disclose who gave it $14 million til after Super Tuesday
I’m guessing the Democracy Alliance or some other Soros front.
(She and Steyer both have some connections to that group.)
My God, look at the pathological narcissism of these self-congratulatory and infantile twits, applying ideological purity tests in order to proclaim who is a true, so-called “progressive.” They toss the moniker “progressive” around as though to be proclaimed as such represents some sort of saintly status.
The same dopes who were cheering on Warren, months ago, are now bashing her. The Dhimmi-crats will turn on and purge all former standard-bearers who fail to live up to the capricious and ever-shifting orthodoxies of their “woke” SJW totalitarianism.
These jackboots are insane.
Bernie and his supporters are wrong on a lot of issues and policy, but they are 100% correct on tagging Warren as a fake and someone not to be trusted. Warren is a lot like Hillary in some ways but not nearly as devilishly clever like HRC. I hope the voters of MA will finally send her packing. Maybe she can have a career in media like many of the politicians do. I would suggest to her not to star in any berr commercials though.
Methinks I’ve got doubts about Hillary being clever.
She’s mean and evil and has been using ILLEGAL Government Information since Bill Clinton was Attorney General in Arkansas in the mid-1970s………. IMO.
She’s just well practiced.
