McCain Forces Warren Abandon the Democrats Narrative About Soleimani (VIDEO)

Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren made an appearance on The View. She was confronted by Meghan McCain about her attempt to avoid talking about Iranian General Soleimani as a terrorist.

She tried her best to push the Democrats’ narrative about how evil it was to go after Soleimani but McCain forced her to admit he was a terrorist.

McCain started the questioning by first acknowledging that she does respect our military, “I believe you respect the American military and respect our troops. You have traveled overseas many times. I just want to say that first and foremost. You issued a statement calling Soleimani a murderer. Later, you issued a second statement saying that he was ‘an assassination of a senior foreign military official.’ Now, this is a man who is obviously responsible for hundreds of American troops’ deaths, carnage that we can’t even imagine.”

McCain then goes on to ask her why she flipped on calling Soleimani a terrorist.

McCain: “The Treasury Department and the State Department have both designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization — I don’t understand the flip flop. I don’t understand why it was so hard to call him a terrorist and I would just like you to explain.”

Warren: “The question is what is the response that the president of the United States should make, and what advances the interests of the United States of America? Think about Saddam Hussein you want to talk about a “bad guy. However, going to war in Iraq was not in the interest of the United States.”

McCain then tried to get Warren on the record as stating that he is a terrorist.

McCain: “Do you think he’s a terrorist?”

Warren: “…part of a group that has been designated as terrorists-“

McCain: “So he is not a terrorist?”

Of course he is,” Warren finally admitted.

Warren: “He’s part of a group that our federal government has designated a terrorist. The question though, is what’s the right response? And the response that Donald Trump has picked is the most incendiary and has moved us right to the edge of war, and that is not in our long-term interests.”

Did you see how difficult it was to extract that out of Warren? How difficult is it to call a man who hates America, is part of a terrorist organization, and has killed hundreds of Americans a terrorist?
