As the feud between the two democratic presidential candidates escalates, Senator Elizabeth Warren now claims that Senator Bernie Sanders offered her a smallpox-infected blanket in an effort to push her out of the race.
Warren’s allegation comes a day after she told reporters that Sanders privately told her that a woman could not win the presidency, a charge Sanders denies. Reached by The Mideast Beast, Warren said that Sanders also told her that Americans would never accept a Cherokee as their commander-in-chief.
“I told him, Bernie, I believe that I am the right person to unite the Democratic Party and beat Donald Trump,” Warren recalled. “And he said, ‘White man very smart, must be chief. Red woman only good for hunt and build tepee.’ I was really taken aback.”
Sanders then handed Warren a blanket, telling her, “sleep with this tonight. Problem will solve itself.”
For his part, Sanders denied having such a conversation and said he only gave her the blanket because “women tend to get cold very easily, which is why we probably shouldn’t put one in the White House.”
