CNN was going all in trying to take Bernie down with all those bullshit framing of the questions but he still came out on top.
I still think that he should have handled it better. Turn it around a bit and question the timing of everything...

"It's just unfortunate that something like this would come out right before the first primary, as soon as I'm acknowledged as the frontrunner..."

Something along those lines.

Rough moments for Bernie. He should have hammered Liz there for stabbing him the back, but he let her shine. Female moderator has been a complete bytch to Sanders, too, and undermined his response rather unfairly.
Yeah, how about when the female moderator asked Bernie if he said the comment about whether a woman could be president and then when he said he didn't, she asks Liz what she thought when Bernie said it. That less that one minute clip is a microcosm of the bullshit coverage that the shithouse network does on Bernie Sanders.

I agree. I think he did good overall but on that part, he should have been more aggressive against the accusation.

It was awful and placed Bernie in a no-win situation.

Oh, I forgot to add, I wasn't just talking about that question but even some of the other questions like when she was asking him about medicare for all and her basically implying in the question that it would bankrupt the country.

What do you suppose they said to each other?

I'm not a lip-reader, but based on his hand gestures, it looked like Bernie might have told her "You and me are fucking done." or something along those lines.

I wouldn't blame him. That was a shitty thing for Warren to do to someone who's been both a friend and political ally for years. I don't believe for a second that he told her women are unelectable for the presidency, especially not when there are recorded examples of him saying that women could be president and that there should be more women in government, going back decades.

What makes this unforgivable, even in the highly unlikely event that her allegations are true, is that she weaponized it against him as soon as it was politically convenient for her to do so. Friends don't do that to friends. It just reinforces my suspicion, going back to 2016, that Elizabeth Warren is out for what is best for Elizabeth Warren, and she doesn't give a fuck about people or progressive movements and change like Sanders does. It's all ambition and ego with her.

More than likely, they were having a discussion and Bernie said something along the lines about how it would be difficult for a woman to beat Donald Trump, given the nature of attacks that he would use. It was, I suspect, in no way an indictment against the female species, but an honest assessment shared between friends.

But this sort of rift was bound to happen. The reality is that they are taking votes away from each other. I alluded to the inverse nature of their polling numbers in the other thread. The friendship needs to be put on hold until after the election.

So she was being honest.
