Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) seems to have dug herself a deeper hole in the controversy with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) about who said what and who lied.

Warren said Sanders told her that he didn’t think a woman could win the presidency. Sanders denied ever saying it. Some media appeared to immediately favor Warren, despite her history of lying.

Then after the recent debate, they had a hot mic throw down moment that seemed set up, may have hurt them both and put their various supporters at odds.

But today, a CBS reporter assigned to follow Warren on the campaign trail managed to ask her a great question.

Zak Hudak asked her if it was “disqualifying” for a presidential candidate to lie to the American people. What a terrific question, especially given the candidate he was asking.

Warren, looking like she was stuck between a rock and a hard place, finally sputtered out an answer, “I would think that…How could the American people want someone who lies to them? Um, I think that we just do our best every day. And I hope that’s what happens with everyone.”

Boy, did she just put her foot in her mouth, big time, with that answer. How completely lacking in self-awareness, given that her history of lying.

From lying about being Native American to even lying about lying about whether her child went to public school, she’s a mess. When caught with a DNA test about the lying, she even lied and spun that as proof of her claim and not the debunking it really was.
