Ding dong, failing Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is officially gone.
In a stunning, game-changing announcement, the senator reportedly announced to her staffers early Thursday that she would be dropping out the 2020 race, thus leaving the more radical lane of the primary race fully open to Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“I want all of you to hear it first, and I want you to hear it straight from me: today, I’m suspending our campaign for president,” she reportedly told her staffers.
“What we have done – and the ideas we have launched into the world, the way we have fought this fight, the relationships we have built – will carry through, carry through for the rest of this election, and the one after that, and the one after that.”
While no specific reason was cited for the abrupt termination of her campaign, some emerging theories revolve around her horrendous performance on Super Tuesday, during which she failed to even win the election in her own state of Massachusetts.

As to why she performed so poorly on Super Tuesday, critics believe it may have been because she’s a nag, a liar and a radical more concerned with pandering to a fringe minority of Americans versus looking out for the working class.

2.) The lying. No getting around it, the fact that she lied for years about being an American Indian, and clearly was using it to advance her professional profile as an academic (remember “Pow Wow Chow?”) undercut her from the beginning.

You can be a teacherly wonk or a brazen Clinton/Trump-like DGAF liar. You can’t be both simultaneously. The feeling like you were being scolded or taught a lesson by her (natural for a law professor) *really* rubbed ppl the wrong way given her record of serial prevarications.

So @BecketAdams has a good one on Elizabeth Warren’s 9 worst panders. My favorite is still, “Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy” https://t.co/aICrkHRXsk

No politician deserves anything, including Warren. Her policies were untenable and she was unlikable. She would never receive my vote and it has nothing to do with her gender as many claim.

According to President Donald Trump, she’s also immensely selfish. He’s among a growing number of Americans who believe that Sanders would have performed far better on Super Tuesday had Warren cleared the lane for him.
Instead, he performed poorly, in part allegedly because thousands of votes that would have theoretically gone to him instead wound up going to Warren.
Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, who was going nowhere except into Mini Mike’s head, just dropped out of the Democrat Primary…THREE DAYS TOO LATE. She cost Crazy Bernie, at least, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Texas. Probably cost him the nomination! Came in third in Mass.

So selfish for Elizabeth Warren to stay in the race. She has Zero chance of even coming close to winning, but hurts Bernie badly. So much for their wonderful liberal friendship. Will he ever speak to her again? She cost him Massachusetts (and came in third), he shouldn’t!

Of course, her radical base of supporters views things differently. To them, the reason she performed so poorly is that America is a sexist country where so-called “diversity” (not to be confused with diversity of thought) isn’t celebrated.
And FYI, this radical base apparently includes CNN commentators as well …
“When it comes to executive office, our country is still very uncomfortable with women in power, and that’s part of why women have to over credential again and again,” former Clinton 2016 campaign spokesperson Karen Finney lamented during the network’s coverage of Super Tuesday earlier this week.

This same sort of rhetoric can be seen on social media.
Stop telling your daughters they can be president when you are unwilling to vote for a woman president.

Wow warren out. Again. Diversity shot. Dems need to do this better going in the future to make sure that diversity is better represented at top levels including the presidency.
Toenail doesn’t count.

With Warren now out, our next president will be 1 of 3 white men over the age of 70. There goes diversity. Now, vote for the candidate you think is most dedicated to diversity, progress, and rising above the status quo. #Vote #Diversity #RepresentationMatters

The Dems started off with such diversity. Warren gone means it’s back to what many said would happen. Old white men running things

Sen. Elizabeth Warren dropping out proves that liberal Democrats just weren’t ready for any diversity in 2020

We’ve had incredibly qualified, charismatic, committed & effective women/POC/WOC run for president. We bet on lackluster white/male leaders instead. Think about this next time your #diversity meeting devolves into “but there aren’t enough qualified candidates” #Warren

With no sources or proof, some liberals are blaming Obama for the decision:
BREAKING: Elizabeth Warren is OUT!
After losing her own home state of MA, and a private call from @POTUS44 Warren suspends her campaign.

There’s just one big problem with this rhetoric …
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a practicing Hindu of Samoan descent, is still in the race. Granted, she continues to perform poorly as well, albeit in spite of 24/7 attacks from mainstream establishment Democrats and their allies in the establishment press.
But for reasons that remain clear, this indigenous woman of color has never been good enough for the “diversity”-obsessed coalition that backs candidates like Warren.
No, they have and shall perhaps always prefer “fake indigenous women of color” instead …
