Awesome. So that's at least TWO Dems—Harris and Warren—who are smart enough to realize that there aren't ANY Democratic primary voters on Fox. Who else will join them? https://t.co/9XQ9JZ6nLX

This is a key point: Elizabeth Warren welcomes Fox News to attend her events and ask her questions. She’s not taking credentials or refusing to engage with Fox reporters.
What she isn’t going to do is give them exclusive content, let them sell ads, and lend them her credibility. https://t.co/hWMV17mmx6

I really do think Warren loses a lot of leftist street cred by earnestly hating Republicans. You’re supposed to hate Democrats and consider Republicans to be the natural byproduct of Democratic failures, and their voters are merely socialists who have lost their way.

And obviously if Bernie said what she did, they would praise him for cutting through the bullshit while the libs always seek to 'compromise with fascists'. But since Bernie went on & they genuinely believe that Trump voters are secret Leftists…..you get this.

Why I keep ‘giving these people attention’:
It's not that any *one* of these takes is indefensible— or even necessarily wrong—so much as that they're clearly scratching for any possible opening no matter how philosophically incoherent the overall body of work it produces. pic.twitter.com/Oeuq0h0PVc
