Let's now turn to an issue that's come up in the last 48 hours, Senator Sanders. Seen and reported yesterday that … Senator Sanders, Senator Warren confirmed in a statement that in 2018, you told her that you did not believe that a woman could win the election. Why did you say that?
Bernie Sanders: (42:14)
Well, as a matter of fact, I didn't say it, and I don't want to waste a whole lot of time on this, … Anybody that knows me knows that it's in comprehensible that I would think that a woman could not be President of the United States. …
Bernie Sanders: (42:39)
In 2015, I deferred, in fact, to Senate Warren. … I stayed back. Senator Warren decided not to run, and I did run afterwards.
Bernie Sanders: (42:55)
… How could anybody in a million years not believe that a woman could become President of the United States? Let me be very clear. If any of the women on this stage … win(s) the nomination … I hope that's not the case. I hope it's me. But if they do, I will do everything in my power to make sure that they are elected in order to defeat the most dangerous President in the history of our country.

So Senator Sanders, Senator Sanders, I do want to be clear here. You're saying that you never told Senator Warren that a woman could not win the election?
Bernie Sanders: (43:35)
That is correct.
Moderator 2: (43:37)
Senator Warren, what did you think when Senator Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?
E(vil) Warren: (43:44)
I disagreed. Bernie is my friend, and …
I'm no Rod Serling, Isaac Asimov, or any other of a large number of very good writers, however … It is absolutely essential that we not lose sight of the fact that these words were spoken and that prior to the debate E. Warren (as opposed to Evil Warren) had ample opportunity to have a clarifying conversation with Bernie Sanders.
While it is problematic that E. Warren didn't talk with Bernie, she knows full well that she can fix the problem by addressing the truth of the situation honestly, and if she wanted, she could actually repair the rift in the time-space continuum .
