‘View’ Lets Elizabeth Warren’s Pregnancy Discrimination Lie Persist

The media will dig into Republican Senator Tim Scott’s ancestry records to try to disprove his family stories about generations past but yawns when a Democrat senator routinely lies about her own personal history.

That’s why Massachusetts Senator and former 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren could keep up the lie she’s often repeated while on The View today, about being fired from her teaching job because she was pregnant. Not only was she not corrected, but the hosts fawned over her debunked tall tale that she’s used to push her political agenda, while bemoaning that the progressive Democrat didn’t end up becoming president. 

Co-host Sara Haines cheered Warren’s excited reaction to Biden’s big government “American Families Plan” which he spoke about in his address to Congress last week. She then touted Warren’s story about being fired because she was pregnant:

“Now like many, you struggled with child care as a working mom, and even got fired for being pregnant which is just hard to believe. How did those experiences shape you and your beliefs?” Haines asked. 

The Democrat senator plugged her new biography called “Persist” which apparently repeats this same falsehood:

What I try to do in this book is I talk about how policies, the decisions we make, are deeply personal, and so I start with what it’s like to be a mother, and how motherhood changes everything, and sometimes in some really tough ways. I talk about getting fired for being pregnant…

Meghan McCain also revealed she confided in Warren when she was worried about being fired during her pregnancy. 

“I actually was scared I was going to get fired for being pregnant, and it’s not rational, but I thought if I’m a, you know, co-host of this big show, and I work for ABC and Disney and I’m worried about losing my job….” she began adding that “conservatives should be caring about the family and women.” 

But Warren’s tale was first debunked back in 2019 by CBS News and the Free Beacon. So why is the media still allowing her to get away with this false story?

Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin stuck to flattering the Senator, bemoaning how “painful” it was to see the “so qualified” far-left female candidate drop out of the 2020 race:

JOY BEHAR: So senator, I’m a big fan of yours. I think I’ve told you that many times, and the decision to end your campaign was very painful for us, and for you because there was a point where you were leading in the polls, and we all thought that you could win. You say that 2020, you were new to losing. You were new to it because you’re not a loser. You’re a winner, and we know that, but that was a hard time for you, wasn’t it?

(…)

SUNNY HOSTIN: Now senator, this book by the way was absolutely fantastic. It was very easy to read and just really wonderful, and you were so open and authentic in it, and you’ve also openly talked about the role that gender plays in politics, even facing sexism yourself when you ran for president, and you write that you had to run against the shadows of Martha and Hilary, referring to the failed candidacy of Martha Coakley for Senate and Hillary Clinton for president. What did you mean by that, and do you believe Democrats were wary to nominate another woman for president after Hillary because obviously you were so qualified? 

As you would expect, Warren’s “fans” at The View didn’t give her any tough questions.

The View

5/4/2021

SARA HAINES: Welcome, senator. You were clapping and pumping your fist when President Biden unveiled his American families plan to congress last week which covers a very personal issue you have been fighting for your whole life, national paid family leave and child care support. Now like many, you struggled with child care as a working mom, and even got fired for being pregnant which is just hard to believe. How did those experiences shape you and your beliefs? 

ELIZABETH WARREN: ….What I try to do in this book is I talk about how policies, the decisions we make, are deeply personal, and so I start with what it’s like to be a mother, and how motherhood changes everything, and sometimes in some really tough ways. I talk about getting fired for being pregnant….

MEGHAN MCCAIN: …I actually was scared I was going to get fired for being pregnant, and it’s not rational, but I thought if I’m a, you know, co-host of this big show, and I work for ABC and Disney and I’m worried about losing my job, and then on top of everything else, having to deal with how conservatives should be caring about the family, and caring about women and caring about, you know, how people are treated in companies. The fact that you were worried, and you’re worried about your granddaughter being worried and I was worried, I’m more disappointed that more Republicans haven’t gotten on board and seen the bigger picture on this. Because you’ve done so much advocacy, you’ve really put your money where your mouth is. I’m Republican, and you care about how I was feeling. What do you think we can do to bring more Republicans on board with this issue because I really think it’s a big reason why we’re having so many problems in this country is that women really are punished still for having children. 

WARREN:… For a long, long time, men in the United States, senate and congress and the white house have talked about infrastructure. We need infrastructure, and every time they say it, do you know what they’re talking about? Roads, bridges, broadband, and those are all important, true, but we also need child care. You want parents to be able to go to work. You want women to be able to go to work? Then we need affordable, available child care….

JOY BEHAR: So senator, I’m a big fan of yours. I think I’ve told you that many times, and the decision to end your campaign was very painful for us, and for you because there was a point where you were leading in the polls, and we all thought that you could win. You say that 2020, you were new to losing. You were new to it because you’re not a loser. You’re a winner, and we know that, but that was a hard time for you, wasn’t it? Tell us about that, and the title of the book has something to do with how you dealt with that, I think.
