Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the Elizabeth Warren is perhaps one of the phoniest people in politics—and that’s saying a lot. She spent years self-identifying as a Native American, only to discover that she’s whiter than most white people after taking a DNA test. Warren was also recently caught in a lie for her repeated claims of being fired from her teaching job because she was pregnant, for misrepresenting her father’s occupation, and her ability to afford college. There’s virtually nothing genuine about her, yet she’s been a contender for the 2020 Democratic nomination for some time.
Her most recent whopper is her claim that Bernie Sanders told her in a private conversation that he didn’t think a woman could win the White House. People with knowledge of the conversation refute her account.
Her smear of Bernie Sanders appears to have finally woken Democrats up to her phoniness. In fact, it resulted in #RefundWarren trending on Twitter and liberal donors flooding to ActBlue to request refunds of their donations to her campaign.
Act Blue is literally at max capacity from people asking for refunds of their Warren donations…on the eve of the last debate before Iowa.
She was already in deep trouble, but the desperate & disgusting lying & smearing was unexpected.
Karma works fast sometimes.

Naturally, many were amused that it took so long for people to figure this out, and others haven’t quite yet figured it out, but are claiming to be suddenly outraged
So #RefundWarren is trending and people want their money back because they are JUST NOW discovering that fauxcohauntas is a liar? You people really are stupid.

#RefundWarren is trending because apparently @ewarren said something about #Bernie that wasn't true. What exactly will it take for the left in this country to get this one simple truth. Elizabeth Warren is a liar. Have you NOT heard about her faking American Indian heritage?

I donated over $100 to Elizabeth Warren last year. I just emailed ActBlue requesting my money back. I cannot believe that she would stoop so low in this campaign and I'm ashamed that I ever supported her. I assume she has HFA staff working for her now. #RefundWarren

I always knew @ewarren was a liar and a fraud.
Kindly see the attached photos and the thread below. She’s doubled down on her claim that Bernie said a woman couldn’t become POTUS. She has lied for gain for her entire career; why should this be different? #RefundWarren https://t.co/McIEAqRTMK pic.twitter.com/RCcdh551B7
