Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Elizabeth Warren: "How could the American people want someone who lies to them?””. Below is an excerpt from the article.

On Friday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed to be “the only one running for president whose actually been on the executive side.” This is clearly false given that former Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE) was . . . well, vice president.  Not to mention that Michael Bloomberg (D-NY), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) are all former mayors.

And of course President Trump is running for president, but presumably she meant among her Democrat rivals.  Or maybe she just meant in that room at that moment?  If so, she still would have been wrong.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she was the only White House hopeful who has spent any time in the executive branch on government at an Iowa rally, seemingly forgetting about a number of her rivals.

The remarks came after an audience member asked her when she plans on using presidential authority for some of her policy agenda instead of relying on Congress.

“That’s a really good question. Let me remind you, I think, I’m the only one running for president whose actually been on the executive side,” Warren said Friday evening. “Remember, after the consumer agency was passed into law, Barack Obama, President Obama, asked me to set it up. So I set up a federal agency. We effectively went from two employees the day I walked in the door to about 1000 and spent a year getting it up and operational.”
