Elizabeth Warren declared Wednesday morning that she was suspending her campaign for President… and the excuses are already pouring in.
CNN spent nearly eight minutes bashing voters for being sexist, despite the fact that Warren lost big in a Democratic primary that’s mostly made up of women.
“You had this very diverse Democratic Party and then you have the women, you have all the white guys who have the delegates. What’s going on here?” complained CNN host Don Lemon.
Commentator Karen Finney agreed with him, bemoaning the fact that Americans are “very uncomfortable with women in power, and that’s part of why women have to over-credential again and again.”
On Capitol Hill, Warren’s female colleagues also fumed over alleged “sexism.”
“This election cycle in particular has … presented very legitimate questions about the challenges of women running for president of the United States,” said Warren’s former opponent, Sen. Kamala Harris of California.
“Look at what’s happened. There are no women currently in this race,” Harris added. “The reality is that there’s still a lot of work to be done to make it very clear that women are exceptionally qualified and capable of being the commander in chief of the United States of America.”
Leftist women’s groups also got in the mix.
“It is clear from Warren’s campaign that there is a glass ceiling held firmly in place for women by a media who relentlessly shape voters perceptions of who is electable through a deeply sexist lens,” fumed Shaunna Thomas, founder of the leftist group UltraViolet Action.
Nearly 9 in 10 Democratic voters didn’t see it that way. Despite being briefly considered a front runner last year, Warren attracted just 12.9% of the vote among her own party faithful.
