On Wednesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), desperate to escape from the morass and quagmire that has left her trailing the other presidential candidates as well as escaping any perception that she is not radical enough to win the nomination, said that Vice President Mike Pence was not an honorable man and engages in “homophobia and attacks on people who are different from himself.”
Warren was appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where she was asked by “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski, “Is Mike Pence an honorable man?”
Warren answered immediately, “No.”
Even the leftist Brzezinski was taken aback by the immediacy of the response, managing, “Okay, would you like to expound upon that?”
Warren gladly continued, “Sure. Anyone who engages in the kind of homophobia and attacks on people who are different from himself is not an honorable person. That’s not what honorable people do.”
Earlier this month, after former Vice President Joe Biden had an unthinking moment when he complimented Pence, saying that Pence was a “decent man,” Warren took issue with that at a campaign rally in Waterloo, Iowa, barking, “I’m sorry, I followed Pence’s history on LBGTQ Americans and I don’t think that is a decent position.” A reporter pressed, “You don’t think the vice president is a decent man?” Warren responded bluntly, “No.”
As Newsweek reports, “In July 2016, after the Trump-Pence Republican ticket was announced, Warren said Pence ‘is famous for trying to control women’s bodies,’ and that the two men with their ‘sexism’ are ‘in line with the party platform.’”
As far back as July 2016, Warren tweeted:
Warren has been trying everything under the sun to get some traction in the race for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination; on New Years’ Eve she tried appearing more hip to a younger crowd, livestreaming herself chugging a beer on Instagram.
Roughly two weeks later Warren said she would support renaming Columbus Day “Indigenous People’s Day,” arguing, “My feeling on this is why would we not want to honor indigenous people. These were the people who were here. These were the people who in Massachusetts reached out and helped the first settlers, and helped them survive those first harsh and rugged years. I’m in favor of honoring, I think that’s a good thing to do.”
Roughly two weeks after that, Warren targeted possible rival Howard Schultz, who had stated he was considering running for president and had taken a more moderate position on the issues, saying, “What’s ‘ridiculous’ is billionaires who think they can buy the presidency to keep the system rigged for themselves while opportunity slips away for everyone else. The top 0.1%, who’d pay my #UltraMillionaireTax, own about the same wealth as 90% of America. It’s time for change.”
As The Daily Wire reported, a mid-February University of Massachusetts Amhurst poll showed Warren running a distant fourth, not just to Sen. Bernie Sanders and fellow Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), but also to former Vice President Joe Biden, who hadn’t even decided if he plans on entering the race.
