Tim O’Brien — the senior adviser to Mike Bloomberg‘s presidential campaign — says Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren shouldn’t judge Bloomberg so harshly since she was caught misrepresenting her faux “Native-American” heritage and the Left gave her a chance to redeem herself.
By the same token, O’Brien says Warren and other Democrats should give Bloomberg a second chance now that he has agreed to release three former female employees from their non-disclosure agreements with the billionaire’s media company.
O’Brien made the assertions during a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer, where O’Brien credited Elizabeth Warren for being the catalyst for Bloomberg’s decision to release some of the women from their NDAs.
“Of course, Senator Warren flagging [this issue] has played a role in the decision, and I admire senator Warren greatly,” O’Brien said. “I was disappointed in how she conducted herself on the debate stage. She accused Michael Bloomberg of saying things he has never said.”
O’Brien said he believes that Warren knew that some of the things she accused Bloomberg of were false, but she said them anyway to score political points for her struggling presidential campaign.
“I have to believe she knew full well that what she said on that debate stage wasn’t something that Michael Bloomberg had said himself and, of course, Senator Warren knows what it’s like to be on the other side of smearing and public abuse.
President Trump has been doing it to her for the past two years or so. Unfortunately, the debate became a free-for-all and Mike had a big target on his back.
She chose to take the position she did, which was to use some false information or unclear information to pretend that Mike Bloomberg doesn’t support women and has not spent a lifetime helping to empower them.
We’re happy to try to resolve this by becoming much clearer with the NDAs that have been in question. But I would point to you again that this is a small number of the NDAs that were in dispute.”
During the interview, Elizabeth Warren’s camp issued a statement to CNN about the NDA issue, which Wolf Blitzer read aloud.
Warren said: “That’s just not good enough. Michael Bloomberg needs to do a blanket release so that all women who have been muzzled by the NDAs can step up and tell their side of the story in terms of what Michael Bloomberg has done.”
Blitzer asked O’Brien: “What’s your reaction to what she just said?”
That’s when O’Brien called Warren out for her past lies: “It’s interesting to me that that’s Senator Warren’s position on this. There was a lot of concerns about claims Senator Warren had made about her ancestry when she applied to colleges. She acknowledged publicly that she had made a mistake. She asked the public to give her a second chance, and realized sometimes that people make mistakes.”
O’Brien said just like the Left gave Warren a second chance, they should give Bloomberg a chance to redeem himself, especially since he’s now trying to address past grievances.
“I think it would behoove everyone involved in this discussion to be forgiving,” O’Brien said. “I think Senator Warren has spent most of her career as a uniter. She clearly right now has found something that she doesn’t want to let go of. We are doing as much as we possibly can in real-time to address this. And I think voters are going to see that.”
As BizPac Review reported, Elizabeth Warren has been widely mocked for insisting that she’s part-Cherokee Indian. Early in her career, Warren exploited her fake Native-American heritage to benefit from affirmative action hiring programs that should have benefited actual Native-Americans.
In 2012, Warren admitted that she told Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania that she was Native-American while applying for teaching jobs. Not surprisingly, both Ivy League schools jumped to recruit her.
Thanks to her shameless exploitation of her phony minority status, Warren — who graduated from Rutgers Law School — was hired as a professor at Harvard Law School, where she was listed as a “woman of color.”
