Joe Scarborough Doubts Bernie Sanders Told Elizabeth Warren a Woman Couldn’t Win

Amid the ongoing controversy between supporters of Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough weighed in on Tuesday to apparently defend Sanders. The Vermont senator has denied telling Warren that a woman couldn’t win the presidential election.

“You got Donald Trump lying to the American people, saying that he’s fighting to protect preexisting conditions, when that’s just a damnable lie,” the Morning Joe host said.

“It’s ridiculous. He’s working overtime to kill it. Republicans, attorney generals, they’re all working to take away Americans protections, that they’ve been afforded for children with preexisting conditions. For their loved ones with preexisting conditions.”

“That’s a huge issue that every Democrat should have been talking about yesterday, because that impacts Americans. And they’re talking about some private conversation from 2018?”

“I’m not getting on anybody’s side, but do any of us really believe that Bernie Sanders is gonna say ‘I don’t think a woman can win, Elizabeth’. Who’s gonna say that? Come on.”
