Here's The Solution To The Warren vs. Sanders Problem

Alright so some bullshit feud between the Warren and Sanders camp has popped up and I'm already starting to see another four years of Trump in our future. Apparently, Warren came out to say that in a 2018, closed-door meeting between the two, she said that she thought a woman could win the presidency in 2020 and Sanders, quote, "disagreed."

So now the Bernie stans are all "WARREN IS LYING, BARNIE WOULD NEVER SAY THAT."

And the Bernie haters are all "SEE, BERNIE IS A MISOGYNIST."

Now, you know me. Staunch, unforgiving feminist ready to punt any man into the sun the moment he displeases me. I'm kidding, of course. That only applies to rich white able-bodied cis men. BUT I do not buy that Bernie Sanders thinks that women aren't fit to be president of the U.S. because he thinks we're inferior to men. If he said that, I'm sure he meant that due to rampant sexism in the country that was a large part of the reason Hillary lost, it's not likely that a woman could be elected in 2020. It's going to be even harder in 2020 than in 2016, because the incumbent always has the advantage.

However. I am still not a fan of men saying this shit to women under any circumstances. And we can talk about whether Bernie really believed that or if he just said it because he really really really wants to be president and this is probably the last time he can run. At the same time, we can also talk about how the fuck are we supposed to know who's telling the truth here?

But I'm already fucking tired of this. Bernie and Liz aren't that different. I know their stans are going to yell and scream that they are but I'm done. You can all shut the fuck up. I have the answer.

Elizabeth Warren. Bernie Sanders. Rock fucking paper scissors, flip a coin, one potato two potato, whatever the fuck chance game to determine who runs for president. The other is your running mate. Together, destroy Biden and then Trump. The end, bye, everybody shut up, SHUT UP I SAID.

We're done here.
