The Making of a 'Liar'

The Making of a 'Liar'

In 1997, at the funeral of the University of Houston law professor Eugene Smith, Elizabeth Warren revealed in her eulogy that Smith, who had been a part of the hiring committee that brought her onto the law school’s faculty in the late ’70s, had consistently sexually harassed her, one time going so far as to shut the door to his office and lunge for her. She didn’t report him at the time,...

Tom, What Did You Hear?

Tom, What Did You Hear?

Tuesday night’s CNN Democratic Debate in Des Moines, Iowa has been largely deemed as a dull affair, where presidential hopefuls were more interested in keeping things mild ahead of the Iowa caucuses as opposed to letting sparks fly. Even the moment that was poised for drama —addressing allegations that Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren that a woman cannot win the presidency , which...

Can a Woman Win? There's Only One Way to Fucking Find Out

Look, no one wants Mommy Liz and Daddy Bern tofight . They both love America very much and want what’s best for us. And what is best for us is to stop endlessly speculating over whether a woman can win the presidency and seeing if primary voters think a woman can win the presidency.

This week, just in time to stir up debate drama, CNN reported that Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren over a...

Mom and Dad Please Don't Break Up: A Democratic Debate Liveblog

The events of the last few days are any indication, we’ve entered the dog days of the Democratic primaries. With the Iowa caucuses in just two weeks and one less candidate on a rapidly shrinking stage, the two most progressive candidates in the race, longtime friends Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, are engaged in what appears to be their first fight, though it’s debatable whether this a...

It’s really no surprise that some teenage boys love Trump. From what I can recall, they are burdened with all the baggage that comes from being taught that normal human feelings are wrong and bad along while being offered limited outlets for expressing any emotion...

Warren Says Sanders 'Disagreed' That a Woman Could Win the Presidency

Warren Says Sanders 'Disagreed' That a Woman Could Win the Presidency

Bernie Sanders is nothing if not an idealist. He believes if elected, he can achieve the Herculean feat of transitioning America to single-payer healthcare. He’s backed the Green New Deal; promises free college; canceled student loan debt; the end of the housing crisis. But a woman becoming president? Apparently, a bridge too far.

A statement from Elizabeth Warren confirmed that in a 2018...

In 2016, Bernie Sanders reportedly encouraged Elizabeth Warren to run for president; when she declined, he decided to run against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary. The two have been friends since before Warren entered the Senate, and while they have...

There Is No Real Beef Here

There Is No Real Beef Here

The amicable relationship between presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren turned frosty over the weekend after Politico ran a headline claiming the Sanders campaign “slam[med] Warren as candidate of the elite.” The Sanders campaign allegedly released a campaign document to volunteers that suggests telling Warren supporters that Warren’s popularity among “highly-educated”...

Conservatives love to wax poetic about the glory of the Constitution, but what they love even more is to ignore the parts they don’t like and call it patriotism. Case in point: Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former Trump press secretary and current Fox News talking head...

Elizabeth Warren Wants to Reminds Us Who She Is

BROOKLYN, NY—As I waited to enter the opulent Kings Theatre in Brooklyn for Elizabeth Warren’s rally with Julián Castro on Tuesday night, I asked the woman standing next to me, dressed stylishly in cheetah-print booties, why she supported Warren’s campaign. She gushed about Warren’s proposal to tax billionaires and her other detailed plans . It was only after I asked her name that I realized...

One of my favorite things about Elizabeth Warren is that she is a former professor. And as any former professor, including myself, can tell you, learning to ignore interrupting, entitled students who attempt to derail the class discussion to mask the fact that...

Julián Castro Endorses Himself As Vice President

Julián Castro, who ended his presidential campaign earlier this month, has endorsed Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic primary, and perhaps himself as her vice president pick if she emerges victorious from the primary season, draped in the entrails of her moderate challengers.

In his endorsement on Monday morning, which he shared on Twitter, Castro wrote that the two “share a vision of...

Elizabeth Warren Says What We're All Thinking

On Meet the Press on Sunday, Elizabeth Warren pointed out that the timing on Donald Trump’s ordered assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani seems just a tad fishy.

“We are not safer because Donald Trump had Soleimani killed,” Warren told host Chuck Todd. “We are much closer to the edge of war. The question is, why now?”

Indeed, why now? What could possibly be happening that might...

Gifts for the Democratic Candidate in Your Life

Gifts for the Democratic Candidate in Your Life

Last night during the sixth—count em six—Democratic debate , PBS Newshour anchor Judy Woodruff closed out the night with a question so friendly and non-threatening that it almost sounded like a joke: She asked the candidates to consider if whether they wanted to ask for forgiveness from someone on stage, or if they wanted to give a gift to their fellow candidates. Woodruff then asked them all...

The sixth Democratic Debate started off a little sleepy until a few of the candidates opted for a winning strategy that brought viewers of varying loyalties together: Dunk on Mayor Pete.

(Pete Buttigieg is currently leading Iowa primary polls, followed by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.) Buttigieg butted heads with Amy Klobuchar on leadership and received a slight from Sanders about...
