...Warren's campaign put out a statement that effectively calls #Bernie sexist and then claims to want to move on.— Peter Daou (@peterdaou) January 14, 2020

Now why on earth would she do that?
People who follow me know how dedicated I am to fighting sexism. It was everything I did in 2016 and I was mocked and smeared for it when I defended Hillary.— Peter Daou (@peterdaou) January 14, 2020
But this isn't about sexism. It's about the incredibly questionable timing of lobbing this out there as #Bernie surges.
