Recently, CNN reported a conflict between Ms. Warren and Bernie Sanders over a “he said, she said” controversy related to the 2020 presidential election.
Ms. Warren thought Mr. Sanders said a woman could not win the presidency, which he then vehemently denied.
"Look back over my years, many years," he responded, "and you will see this is totally wrong."
“Of course I believe a woman could be president!”
Now, however, a new controversy is emerging, again surfaced by the diligence of CNN.
Ms. Warren is now reported as saying the best way to respond to male opponents in the 2020 race is to “grab 'em by the b***s.”
Ms. Warren has vigorously denied she said any such thing.
The remark plays on Mr. Trump, in 2016, allegedly saying he could do whatever he liked with women and get away with it, including, “grab 'em by the p***y.”
Back in 2016, Mr. Trump's staff responded that video and audio can be doctored with today's technology to make it appear a person could say anything.
Careful analysis by audio experts can reveal gaps and inconsistencies not usually noticeable to a casual listener that indicate tampering and contrived speech.
Nevertheless, Mr. Trump's “grab 'em by the p***y” has remained a strong impression of his tendencies with the ladies.
Meanwhile, Ms. Warren has been quick to respond to this latest kerfuffle from CNN reporters, vigorously attending to today's politics.
Making her situation worse, she notes, she has already noticed the damaging effects of this supposed comment she made.
Males now approaching her tend to turn sideways with hand in the trousers' pocket in protective mode.
Ms. Warren (with some exasperation and heat): “Are we feeling a little nuts with all this folderol by now?”
But Mr. Sanders was not willing to let this go, friendship or no.
“May I say that I deeply resent the implications here in Ms. Warren's remark!”
“There has been no doubt, over many, many years, about the size of my dedication, my courage, and the continuing efforts I have made, and my principled opposition to anything unfair and discriminatory!”
“Further, I will put the size of my cojones up against any male's in the 2020 political theater at this time!”
