The latest poll was bad news for corporate interests, but their prospects brightened a bit over the weekend when Politico reported: "The nonaggression pact between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren is seriously fraying". People sometimes say things that they shouldn't have. Elizabeth Warren of MA, for being a leading voice in advocating for a calendar change.
"But you've heard me for months, I have never said a negative word about Elizabeth Warren, who is a friend of mine".
"Democrats are taking their cues from socialist Bernie Sanders", along with the group of freshman women in the House known as "The Squad", Trump said. "The fact that two senators get together to chat becomes a big deal, that's a real problem I think from the media that we should be thinking about". "But here's my concern about her", it adds, before moving to the criticism of her supporters. It also reportedly urges volunteers to tell those considering voting for former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg that he lacks support among black voters and to tell voters backing former Vice President Joe Biden that he "he doesn't really have any volunteers" and that "no one is really excited about him".
Sanders responded Monday to the report which CNN said came from two people who spoke to Warren directly after the meeting and two others who were familiar with the allegedly sexist exchange.
"The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement. To win in November, we need a nominee who can unite a broad coalition of Democrats - who will excite every part of the Democratic party and inspires more people to join the fight".
"I hope Bernie reconsiders and turns his campaign in a different direction", she said before moving on.
Turner's comment was in response to Warren's reaction to Politico's report Sunday regarding a Sanders campaign script instructing volunteers to tell voters leaning toward Warren that the "people who support her are highly-educated, more affluent people who are going to show up and vote Democratic no matter what" and that "she's bringing no new bases into the Democratic Party".
Sanders, who opposes military interventions and has warned that Trump is leading the United States to war with Iran, has criticized Biden for supporting the Iraq war.
Keeping eyes on the prize this year will require a united front that can strengthen progressive forces, prevent any corporate Democrat from winning the party's presidential nomination, and then go on to defeat Donald Trump. "Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016".
While Biden has largely stayed mum on Sanders' attacks in recent days, Warren's broadside sets the potential for a debate-stage clash in which he'll likely be attacked by multiple opponents. "Whether you like it or not, you can't win the election unless you get moderate Republicans to cross the line".
