MSNBC’s Chris Matthews pressed Elizabeth Warren on why she believed that Mike Bloomberg had told a pregnant employee to “kill it.” Because she had said so, she said. “Why would he lie?” Matthews asked. “Why would she lie?” Warren responded.

Ms. Warren called out Mr. Bloomberg on his history of crude and sexist comments at the Democratic debate in Charleston, S.C.

Michael R. Bloomberg was the “riskiest” candidate for the Democratic Party to nominate, with a pointed recitation of his history of crude and sexist comments. Recalling pregnancy discrimination she had faced as a special-education teacher, Ms. Warren lamented that she hadn’t had a union or a federal law protecting her. And then she turned to Mr. Bloomberg. “At least I didn’t have a boss who said to me, ‘Kill it,’ the way that Mayor Bloomberg is alleged to have said to one of his pregnant employees,” Ms. Warren said. “People want a chance to hear from the women who have worked for Mayor Bloomberg.” Mr. Bloomberg quickly denied the allegation: “I never said that, and for the record, if she was a teacher in New York City, she would never have had that problem. We treated our teachers the right way, and the unions will tell you exactly that.” Gayle King, one of the moderators, challenged Ms. Warren to provide evidence that Mr. Bloomberg had made the comment. Ms. Warren said the evidence was simple. “Her words,” she said. According to a lawsuit filed in 1997, Mr. Bloomberg once told a female employee who was expecting a baby to “kill it” before grumbling about the number of pregnant women at his company. Mr. Bloomberg denied making the remark at the time, and the case was settled with no admission of guilt. Earlier this month, a co-worker told The Washington Post that he had heard the conversation and corroborated the woman’s account. In an interview after the debate, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews pressed Ms. Warren, asking her why she believed “the former mayor of New York said that to a pregnant employee” when Mr. Bloomberg had denied doing so. “A pregnant employee sure said he did,” Ms. Warren replied. “Why shouldn’t I believe her?” She said, as she had during the debate and many times before, that pregnancy discrimination was personal for her because she had once lost a teaching job after becoming pregnant. Such discrimination is rampant, she said, yet “men all across this country say, ‘Oh my gosh, he never would have said that.’” Why, she asked, were the woman’s own words not compelling? In a he-said-she-said situation, why was Mr. Matthews’s immediate instinct to believe the man? When Mr. Matthews pushed her to say outright that she thought Mr. Bloomberg was lying, she responded, “I believe the woman, which means he’s not telling the truth.” “Why would he lie?” Mr. Matthews asked. “Why would she lie?” Ms. Warren responded. During the debate, Ms. Warren also challenged Mr. Bloomberg over his announcement last week that he was willing to release three women from nondisclosure agreements with his company so they could discuss their complaints about him publicly. As she said on Friday, it was a limited announcement by Mr. Bloomberg, and “not good enough.” “Let us have the women have an opportunity to speak,” Ms. Warren said. “The Bloomberg corporations and Mayor Bloomberg himself have been accused of discrimination. They are bound by nondisclosures so that they cannot speak. If he says there is nothing to hide here, then sign a blanket release and let those women speak out so that they can tell their stories the way I can tell my story: without having the fear that they’re going to be sued by a billionaire.” The back-and-forth was a , when Ms. Warren quoted comments the mayor had reportedly made, describing him as “a billionaire who calls women ‘fat broads’ and ‘horse-faced lesbians.’” Long before he even became a politician, Mr. Bloomberg had a reputation for Read more: The New York Times

Can Bloomberg’s money purchase the Democratic Party’s soul despite his long racist & sexist history? Possible reasons for this scenario - ousting Bernie & bitterness for Trump Why Warren hate so much Bloomberg? Done and she knows it. Will The NY Times “call out” SenWarren for being a lifelong liar and grifter?

She is just running interference for Bernie. She is fading. Warren attacks Bloomberg as if her hands are clean, as if she knows the truth of his life. Didn't she lie and pretend she was Native American? Self righteous hypocrite. Didn’t Warren just vote NO on a bill to protect babies born alive after failed abortions from being killed? Not sure what her point to Bernie was... DemDebate2020 hypocrisy

He also needs to be called out on stating he bought Democrats.🤦🏼‍♀️ Did he buy republicans too when he funneled money in to re elect them. I can see Bloomberg running as Democrat bc clearly he cant beat Trump as a Republican. But then becoming a GOP in the White House.😳 DANGEROUS I love Mike. If he tries to make a joke, nobody understands. Even Mike himself has no clue. He looks around whit a ' they told me this was funny' stare in his eyes

Time surely for some of them to question her past claims of being Native American and how she used it to further he career. Warren rolling out the disproven story about being fired for being pregnant again... will she revert to her Indian roots again next?

Democratic Debate: Mike Bloomberg Slams Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren Hammers Both Mike Bloomberg threw his first punch early in Tuesday’s Democratic Debate in Charleston, S.C., taking aim at Bernie Sanders over recent reports that Russian hackers are trying to assist his c… Slammed him? Mike has zero human like emotions, empty shell The debates need to be whittled down to 3 so we can actually hear what they have to say! Warren, Stenyer and Klobucher don’t have a chance so why are they there? Just ignore anything Mike says, no plans, just a shitload of $ to yell Vote for Me, look my face is on TV Vote for Me ! Why ? Well....look My face is on TV 😃

And lied about being fired for being pregnant (again) tell the whole story elizabeth warren is a pathological liar Democrats destroying themselves before the big fight 🤦🏾‍♂️ Wait here I thought Dems approve of kill babies born alive after botched abortions. hypocrites ewarren is a hypocrite. She’s made it clear she supports “killing it”.

Warren attacked Bloomberg plain & simple. Clearly cozying up to Bernie, for what one has to suppose is a VP spot? All y'all be hating, but Mike bought Democrats a congress! Hi way to go 👍🏼 ewarren 👍🏼

The loneliness of Elizabeth Warren: 'I feel like I'm living in a movie'In an interview with NBC News, the senator from Massachusetts opened up about the experience of running for the White House. She’s still running? 🤷‍♂️ Cool Is the movie....

That’s proof that even Democrats inherently know mothers killing their unborn children is wrong Please help! And support our cause! support Gofundme ewarren worst debate performance so far. Why would she lie? Umm lawsuit $$$ duh Why does it matter? Democrats are in our faces all the time glorifying abortions, they call it 'reproductive health'. Just a clump of cells right? They just killed a bill that would require drs to give med care to babies who survive a botched abortion. It's who they are.

That's awful. I've said worse. We all have. She is crazy and is giving Trump the election. summerbrennan Chris Matthews is an embarrassment. In era of he-said-she-said it’s very slippery slope. However, even if he said it, so what? Crude. Unfeeling. Sexist. Poor taste. He apologized. Sincerely. Move on. Country is falling apart. Warren & Sanders are ideological autocrats. That’s why no one likes them.

Elizabeth Warren Holds a Precarious Position in Democratic RaceElizabeth Warren’s position in the race for Democratic delegates failed to improve after the caucuses in Nevada , a blow to her argument that she can stay viable in the race even without notching statewide victories. she's toast ...... hope Bloomberg scalps Pocahontas tonight Maybe Sen Warren's campaign could use a wine cave fundraiser... ...if all rivals drop out...

I love this new IDGAF version of Liz. Obviously someone is lying, and it clearly not the lady cos ladies never lie I thought she had an NDA and wasn't talking and that's what Warren is angry about? How did she get this information? “Mathews then went on to compare her allegation tantamount to the rape of Nanking “

Must be true then. Irresponsible. He? She? 😳😳😳😳😵😵😵😵😵 Wqcky lying warren Warren claimed that the cop who shot M. Brown “murdered” the 18-year-old black man. Except that the policeman was white and the victim was black, what evidence did Warren had? This is the textbook definition of racism. We have a racist in the Whitehouse now, want another one?

wait, abortion is bad now? julievzwilson That was a bit much. Not that I don't believe he is more likely to have said it, than a pregnant employee is to lie about it...as Carville said, Liz in this instance & IMO went overboard- said she lacked 'finesse.' You deal in facts/things u can proove in debate..not accusations.

Warren Buffett would 'certainly vote' for Mike Bloomberg but here's why he's tight-lipped about itWarren Buffett, the fourth-richest person in the world, told CNBC's Becky Quick on Monday that he 'would certainly vote for' former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg for president, but he is trying not to be too vocal about it. Buffett also said he doesn't believe America should give up on a capitalist system. MakeIt I wonder if he went to Epstein's island too MakeIt So unexpected MakeIt The Billionaire's club. Why not?

The New York Times is a liar Elizabeth Warren also believed Jussie Smollett, Nate Phillips, and Christine Ford. If someone told her they owned a beach house in Arizona or saw Bigfoot she’d probably believe it Bloomberg has every reason to lie. What was Chris Matthews talking about? Why wud I say I’m Indian? pocohontas

IBelieveWomen On the one hand, at least he is pro choice. On the other hand, he appears to be complete asshole Elizabeth Warren to Chris Matthews: I can't wait till she drops out of the race can't stomach her anymore. Matthews is why ok boomer is a thing

Audio: Bloomberg slammed Warren as 'scary' and demeaned his endorsement of ObamaBloomberg&39;s campaign said his comments about banks were a "joke" and that the comments about Obama were "an important point."

BelieveWomen Was it glorious? Did he shut his smug face all the way up? For the same reasons you’ve managed to stretch the truth about your race and your work experience Liz! Well, that was a complete waste of a question... Bloomberg was my sleeper to unseeded Trump. I'm starting to have a real distaste towards Warren

Why would he lie? Because he’s a man of power and wealth and influence over a woman and maybe, just maybe, he crossed a line somewhere. Ok Chris Get it yet Who is “she”? And is she credible? Seems like a relevant bit of info. ...or is Warren just making stuff up again? Is HardballChris always talking over women because he can’t hear, or because he can’t listen? WarrenGivesNoFs Warren2020 ShePersisted WarrenForTheWin

2020 and some people still don't understand harassment in the workplace. Well i'm not making a judgement either way but the woman got a settlement of over 60k for that..

Warren Buffett prefers Bloomberg to Bernie, but doubts endorsing helps - Business InsiderWarren Buffett says would vote for Mike Bloomberg over Bernie Sanders, but doubts his endorsement would help the billionaire It’s still early enough to delete this tweet . 'Mike Bloomberg owns more wealth than the bottom 125 million Americans,' Sanders said. 'That's wrong, that's immoral. hahahahaha Pretty expectable, why would he vote for someone who hates him

Politicians lying? You can go to jail when you lie to congress, But when congress lies to you, it's fine!!! Wow. metoo has a long way to go. Warren is great and Matthews is still a jackass who should apologize publicly about comparing Sanders’ to the Holocaust and then resign Would Elizabeth Warren lie? How would she benefit from a lie?

This was a stupid and terrible beginning for SenWarren Bloomberg doesn’t remember that. He’s a narcissist, you have to be to become a billionaire. It’s the same reason he doesn’t understand why stop & frisk is a civil rights disaster. HE never got stopped & frisked. That’s as far as he can see or feel.

Oh irony of ironies. Warren is foregoing winning any states to go all on winning this feud with Mike. Bold strategy. Just fire him already Fact - not once did HardballChris even consider the question 'Why would SHE lie?'
