Elizabeth Warren can’t stop herself from telling whoppers. After the whole episode of being exposed for not being a native American, she’s now being called out for saying multiple times on the campaign trail that she was fired for being ‘visibly pregnant’ when she was a teacher. The problem is Warren told a different story during an interview in 2007.
“I did that for a year, and then that summer I didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ‘emergency certificate,’ it was called. I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me,’” she recounted at the time.
“I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?’ My husband’s view of it was, ‘Stay home. We have children. We’ll have more children. You’ll love this.’ And I was very restless about it,” she said.
Conservative blogger Jeryl Bier pointed out Warren’s changing versions of the story in a post Wednesday.
The Warren campaign doubled down on the claim of her being fired even after a conservative writer unearthed the contradictory interview from 2007. So either she was lying then, or she’s lying now. It points to a candidate who will do anything to have her story seem as woke as possible, whether it’s pretending to be a minority or a victim of the patriarchy.
Warren is probably going to be the nominee. Barring some, early primary collapse or unearthed information or Hillary jumping into the race. The only other candidate who’s been able to maintain consistent growth in the polls is Andrew Yang and Elizabeth Warren. Unlike Yang, Warren wants you to thinks she can run and win being a victim. Americans don’t elect presidents with a perception of being a victim. (More factors go into electability, and we can touch on that in a future show.)
The Warren campaign has doubled down on her pregnancy firing story. In a CBS News interview, Warren said she stood by the story she’s been telling of her dismissal saying “All I know is I was 22 years old, I was six months pregnant, and the job that I had been promised for the next year was going to someone else. The principal said they were going to hire someone else for my job.” To the credit of CBS News, they asked her about the different accounts she had in a Harvard interview. Sen. Warren responded to that question saying, “After becoming a public figure, I opened up more about different pieces in my life, and this was one of them. I wrote about it in my book when I became a U.S. Senator.” So it sounds like she told a different story when she was a private person, but when she became a public elected official, she decided to be more candid in about her life. I do find it odd that a person would keep that kind of thing secret in their personal life. It isn’t like it’s an embarrassing story. If this story is to be believed, it lends credence to the idea that the Senator has the propensity to stretch the truth depending on the circumstances of her life.
