Elizabeth Warren: ‘How Could the American People Want Someone Who Lies to Them?'
Presidential hopeful oblivious to her own hypocrisy
Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren seemed oblivious to the hypocrisy of her recent response to a CBS News reporter, who asked if it was "disqualifying for a presidential candidate to lie to the American people."
Warren's response to CBS News reporter Zak Hudak's question was classic.
"How could the American people want someone who lies to them?" Warren said.
But her answer shows she is aware of her own fibbing.
It does not appear that Zudak asked Warren any follow-up questions.
Warren has a colorful history of bending the truth.
Here are a few Neon Nettle has reported on:
Warren claimed she had native American DNA:
Elizabeth Warren's surprise DNA test revealed that she was no more Cherokee than the average White American.
A later report surfaced, revealing that the senior Democrat's ancestor helped to slaughter Native Americans.
Senator Warren has always played on her "Cherokee heritage," yet her recent DNA test has found that her ancestry is roughly 99.9% White European.
Warren falsely claimed her children only attended public schools
Warren claimed her children only attended public schools, but according to publicly available records she sent her own son to an elite private school.
The 2020 hopeful's education plan would ban for-profit charter schools, a proposal initially backed by Bernie Sanders, and remove government incentives for opening new non-profit charter schools, despite her praising charter schools in the past.

Warren falsely claimed she saw caged babies at the border
The presidential hopeful made a blatantly false claim that she saw "cages of babies" while she was visiting the US Southern Border last year.
Warren was asked about her stance regarding decriminalizing illegal border crossings during the presidential primary debate, which led her to recall her visit to the United States-Mexico border.
Senator Warren claimed that during this visit, she witnessed “cages of babies” held in detention at the southern border with her own eyes.
“What we can’t do is not live our values,” Warren said while advocating for decriminalizing illegal immigration into the U.S.
“I’ve been down to the border, I have seen the mothers, I have seen the cages of babies."
