'The Young Turks' host Ana Kasparian appeared on CNN Monday night to respond to allegations that Sen. Bernie Sanders told Sen. Elizabeth Warren that a woman could not win the presidency in a 2018 conversation. Kasparian questioned the context and said critics are trying to paint Bernie as a sexist when the facts just don't bear out.
"I think the reason why she noticed a dip in the polls and if you just go back to the timing of all of this, it was after she put out her transition plan for Medicare For All," Kasparian said. "That transition plan made it abundantly clear that she was not actually going to push for Medicare For All. She was really going to push for a public option and then you see this dip in the poll."
"Now my problem with Elizabeth Warren is that rather than acknowledging the flaw in her tactic there and changing course, she has decided to bring up a conversation that she had with Bernie Sanders in December of 2018 when he notices a significant rise in the polls," she said. "Like, the American people aren't stupid. They notice what is going on. They notice that she is bringing this up at a time when her campaign is really struggling. I think it's a bad move on her part, I think she should focus on policy."
