A newly-resurfaced video seems to contradict Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s claim that she lost a teaching job back in the 1970s because she was pregnant.
‘By the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days – wish me luck and hire someone else for the job,’ Warren told the crowd of supporters in Nevada.
In the 2008 video, Warren gave a very different explanation for why she lost her job, instead claiming that she did not have the necessary and required courses that were required if she was going to continue teaching. Instead, Warren said she went back to school.
In the video, Warren explains why she did not work after the baby was born. “I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?” said Warren.
This isn’t the only controversy hitting the Warren campaign this week. Just as she should be skyrocketing in the polls, another story is causing heartburn for Warren’s supporters: news that her national organizing director Richard McDaniel, was fired after an investigation into complaints about unspecified inappropriate behavior.
Whether it’s Hillary Clinton’s now-infamous stories about being under fire in a war zone, Joe Biden’s ridiculous Afghanistan story, or Warren’s unsubstantiated claims about her heritage, Democrats seem to make a habit of embellishing — or straight up falsifying — stories to make them look good or like victims. It appears that this may be another case in a string of such events, which makes one wonder whether she is fit to lead.
