Elizabeth Warren says Donald Trump’s ‘woman’s card’ comment is a sign of ‘what weak men do’

Elizabeth Warren says that Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Hillary Clinton are a sign that he feels threatened by the Democratic candidate’s presidential qualifications.

“That’s what weak men do,” said the Massachusetts senator, who despite not endorsing a Democratic presidential candidate came to bat for Clinton in an interview Thursday with The Boston Globe.

“It is an old story,” she said, “and I don’t think the American voters will fall for it.”

Its happening. Clinton/Warren 2016

(How much is Brock paying her?)

Why would Bernie fire low level staffers making $15/hr....

Instead of telling Tad Devine to take a pay cut less than the $830k/month he currently makes?

Former staffers said they were pissed because they were told they would be employed through June.

And its not just Tad, he had an army of consultants, ad agencies, and advisers that he spent almost $100 million on; more than 2x what Hillary has spent.

Even in his own campaign he couldnt stop all the money from going to the top 1%?

FULL AUTOPSY statement on Bernie Data Breach

Didnt he only fire 1 out of 4 staffers? And...

Can. You. Imagine. The. Freakout. If. This. Were. Hillary?

Election 2016 Latino Decisions Poll

In 2012, Obama won Latinos 71-27, Hillz is doing even better!

11% for Trump. 11%!

Hillary vs. Trump Election Projection

Btw, recent polls show Hillary beating Trump in Georgia, Arizona, and tied in Mississippi. MISSISSIPPI!

Bernie's current proposed strategy could win him the nomination.

Unfortunately for Bernie, he waited too long. Bernie started off saying he wanted to run a non-negative, issue oriented campaign. Somewhere along the way (*cough* Jeff Weaver *cough* Tad Devine) his movement became less about issues and more about trying to destroy Hillary.

If Bernie stuck to his guns (no pun intended) and focused solely on the issues and building himself up instead of trying to tear Hillary down, I believe he would be doing far better. Perhaps even winning.

Now, he kind of alluded in his speech a tack back to the issues (which I agree with) and less talk about Hillary (which I agree with). THIS was his winning campaign strategy and I believe Weaver and Devine destroyed Bernie Sanders by not sticking to his original theme.

Imagine for a moment, if Bernie's online brigade spent all of their time and energy building their candidate up instead of creating memes trying to tear Hillary down. THAT was the winning strategy. But somewhere along the way it became about tearing Hillary down.

Yes, Hillary has to court progressives, but Bernie's movement has also created a movement of people who believe Hillary is only winning due to superdelegates, voter fraud, and conspiracy theories. And THAT is on Bernie to try and heal those wounds.

If there is anything we can agree on at this point it should be: 1-Bernie, at this point, needs to help unify the Dem party by stopping any negative remarks about Hillary. 2-Build his own platform up. 3-Stop Trump, an orange white supremacist who wants to punish women for having abortions, deport 11 million families, start 3 wars, make racism codified law, crush unions, and load SCOTUS with dingbats. 4-There is a lot more that unites us than divides us.

Who's going to step up and apologize?

Personal responsibility is an admirable trait.

Philadelphia Daily News endorses Hillary for President


Despite being polar opposites politically, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are two sides of the same coin; noisy, radical curmudgeons who embody many people's disaffection with the political status quo. In both cases, their followers project far more on to them than they offer or could ever deliver.

And then there's Hillary Clinton. She's is a canvas, too, but many project either far less on to her than what she might deliver - or they project their negative feelings about her husband, or her power. She's the anti-Bernie; called by many a "bad candidate," "unlikeable," even "unqualified."

A key fact is that people have described her this way for decades: When she attempted the massive job of reforming health care - as first lady. When she ran for and won the U.S. Senate, where she was more effective in eight years than Sanders has been in his 26 years in Congress. When she first ran for president against Obama. When she became Obama's secretary of state, logging in nearly a million miles of travel and restoring the credibility of the U.S. foreign policy. And again as presidential candidate . . . one who, by the way, has won nearly 700 more delegates toward the nomination than her rival.

Today, she's more accomplished than any other candidate and, in our view, most qualified to lead the country with tenacity and intelligence.

Only one candidate has more votes than Trump.

Hillary will go into convention with a huge delegate lead, huge popular vote lead, and more votes than Donald Trump.

If Bernie cant even get more votes than Trump now, it would be party suicide to nominate him, and it would be a downticket disaster trying to defend him. Trying to convince the "establishment" to back a candidate who would be handily defeated is not going to happen either. This primary was effectively over on Super Tuesday, and in 72 hours it will be the icing on the cake.

Bernie should then channel his movement to help electing downticket Dems, particularly in Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina.
