‘We don’t even have to hear him denying saying it, because there’s no way he’d say that…’
Moore, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and a Sanders supporter, said during his podcast on Wednesday that Warren’s claim that Sanders told her a woman couldn’t win the presidency is obviously untrue.
“[CNN] ran with that story without any backup or agreement or denial from the Warren campaign. Or the Sanders campaign. And it was shocking. It was shocking to me, because I know both of these people,” Moore said.
“After 48 hours of this, and after watching the debate last, I felt a knife in the heart,” he continued. “My heart.”
Moore said he was sure Warren would apologize and retract her claim, but instead she “confirmed” and “continued the lie.”
Elizabeth & Bernie have appeared in my films. I love them both. Why Elizabeth chose to stick a knife in Bernie’s back is beyond me. At a time when job #1 is to remove Trump, how did this help? My new RUMBLE podcast “The Sad Downfall of Elizabeth Warren.” https://t.co/uFwOFNka9U

Warren accused Sanders of calling her a “liar on national television” after Tuesday’s Democratic primary debate. She refused to shake his hand and confronted him, but Sanders urged her to continue the conversation at a later date.
Ironically, Trump agrees with Moore and defended Sanders during a campaign rally Tuesday: “I don’t believe that Bernie said that. I really don’t … It’s not the kind of thing he’d say,” the president reasoned.
Moore echoed Trump’s sentiments on his podcast this week: “I was paralyzed—paralyzed—that her staffers would say such a thing. Any of us who have known Bernie forever know automatically, we don’t even have to hear him denying saying it, because there’s no way he’d say that.”
