Well, if the Bernie Bros were hoping for one last chance at the nomination by having Elizabeth Warren endorse their geriatric candidate, that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
Elizabeth Warren has gone public since dropping out of the 2020 race, spending much of her time crying sexism and making ridiculous excuses for otherwise being an unlikable prude. But she also had some unkind words to Bernie Sanders and his supporters.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Thursday that presidential candidates are responsible for attacks their supporters are making online, adding that such attacks are a problem among supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) 2020 campaign.
“I want to say for all candidates … we are responsible for the people who claim to be our supporters and do really threatening, ugly, dangerous things to others,” Warren said in an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Yeah, she’s not endorsing Bernie and that’s only going to make his followers even angrier. They already feel betrayed by the party, having seen the establishment and the media coalesce in record time to save Joe Biden’s candidacy. But Warren was supposed to be different. She was supposed to be the progressive firebrand who supported Medicare for All and student loan forgiveness. Instead, she’s going after the only candidate in the race that stands for what she claimed to stand for. Why? Because she thinks it will benefit her down the road.
You hate to see it.
Honestly, this is why Warren is now out of the race. Not only is she an awful, screechy candidate who has the likability of a slug, she’s painfully inauthentic. She has no actual principles. That’s how she went from a moderate to super progressive almost overnight. She thought she could change her stripes, stealing Bernie’s support, but they saw right through her act. Because she’s so calculating and ambitious, she’ll now fall in line with Biden, take a few parting shots at Bernie, and try to recover her image for the next go around.
A week ago, Warren was jockeying to be Bernie’s VP, praising him on the debate stage and refusing to attack him. Now that she sees he’s not going to be the nominee, she’s dropping him like a hot potato. It’s kind of gross when you think about it, but this is who Elizabeth Warren is. Good riddance to her having any national prominence.
