Bernie And Pocahontas Are No Longer Sittin’ In A Tree.

Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiikes.

By now you’ve probably heard that there was apparently a private meeting between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in 2018, and according to “sources” Bernie told Warren in that meeting that a woman couldn’t win the presidency.

Both candidates have now responded to this story, and to give you a flavor for how much fun the next several weeks are going to be, allow me to share these two headlines:

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Here’s the statement from the Sanders campaign:

“It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win,” Sanders said. “It’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016.”

And here’s Warren’s statement (in part):

“Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed…I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.”

Huh.  Those seem different.
