What Elizabeth Warren said came back to haunt her

Elizabeth Warren keeps making dumb comments.

Sometimes they come back to bite her.

That was the case with these comments she soon came to regret.

Republican invoked the “nuclear option” to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Democrats engaged in the first partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee.

That left the GOP no choice but to change Senate rules to eliminate the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees.

Democrats were furious.

But not too long ago Democrats were very much in favor of eliminating the filibuster for nominees.

In fact, Elizabeth Warren was one of the cheerleaders for Harry Reid’s 2013 rule changes which eliminated the filibuster for all executive branch and lower court nominees.

The Daily Caller reports her saying on the Senate floor:

“We need to call out these filibusters for what they are: Naked attempts to nullify the results of the last presidential election… Senators not only have the right to change the filibuster rules, senators have a duty to change the filibuster rules.”

You can watch the video of her remarks below.

But before Majority Leader McConnell invoked the nuclear option, Warren expressed support blocking Gorsuch because Democrats were filibustering.

Republicans were left with no other options but to invoke the precedent set by Harry Reid in 2013 and that Elizabeth Warren voted for.

What goes around comes around.

  1. Wasn’t Gorusch confirmed by a final count of 54-45 or something similar? Cecile Richards called it a “razor-thin margin” ~ laughable at the least…hardly “razor-thin” ~ I love that the Dems are coming unglued at every turn these days!! 🙂 And Warren is just another loser….

  2. The radical Left led by “Pocahatas” , “Mad Bernie” and Obama from his bunker refuse to accept any form of authority they don’t control. This is an all out primal conflict by the Left who wants a totalitarian style system to basically enslave America. It is no longer just activism but a treasonous movement that spy’s on it’s citizens and rejects our laws using sanctuary cities to push its Ideological agenda. Warren “Pocahatas” was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama while a member of our Senate—-deciding our legislative body was an outdated institution once they no longer had control. As the vote for POTUS the Left only accepts authority selectively when it controls it. It has come to the point this radical part of the Socio-Democratic party accepts no laws other than those dictated by its radical Marxist ideology. This is a civil war—with no cannons or calvalry–the left doesn’t want to secede it wants to rule our country and Obama the community organizer is still pulling the strings. Warren like Susan Rice are willing surrogates that do his bidding because his Marxist ideology was rejected by middle America when they elected Trump. So now his legacy is at stake and the radical left is incensed and will take down the country to protect his sleazy “Commie” ideology. Obama lost the peace in Iraq, led to the rise of ISIS, turned Syria into shambles and his healthcare program is unpopular across the political spectrum. So what is left is using jurors to legislate his ideology from the bench—-nice try !!!
