I feel bad for her. It must be hard keeping track of all your lies.

Video appears to contradict Warren's suggestion that school fired her over pregnancy

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., suggested this week that a school principal effectively fired her from a teaching job after she became "visibly pregnant," but a resurfaced video indicates that wasn't the actual reason she left the job.

"I was married at nineteen and then graduated from college [at the University of Houston] after Iíd married," Warren, then a Harvard Law School professor, said in an interview posted to YouTube in 2008. "My first year post-graduation, I worked -- it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year, and then that summer I actually didnít have the education courses, so I was on an 'emergency certificate,' it was called.

"I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, 'I donít think this is going to work out for me,'" Warren continued. "I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, 'What am I going to do?'"

By contrast, Warren told an audience at a town hall in Carson City, Nev. Wednesday that she had "loved" working as a special needs teacher.

"By the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days," she said. "Wish me luck and hire someone else for the job."

Warren has repeated the story at campaign appearances throughout the summer, each time repeating the "principal did what principals did" line to describe her departure from teaching.

The senator's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment to clarify the apparent discrepancy.

This isn't the first time that Warren's past has raised questions about her credibility. She has been widely criticized for identifying herself as a Native American in legal directories before applying to work at Harvard Law School. Last year, Warren released the results of a DNA test showing she is only between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American -- and apologized for identifying as Native American on past forms.

Everyone over a certain age knows you could not attend (high) school or teach pregnant in that era.

Don't bother wasting your time citing facts to such a rabid hater of Trump. The Bible addresses this when it says not to cast your pearls before swine.

Liz Warren was 1/1024 fired for being pregnant.
What kind of beer does she like.

Exactly. You are wasting your time pointing out facts to people like salty, they are so invested emotionally in their preferred candidates that facts do not even come close to registering in their minds.

Everyone knows will say anything to give herself an advantage. She did it claiming to be Native American so she could be hired at Harvard with comparatively light academic credentials. Now she makes herself the victim again with another lie about her decision not to pursue a special education teaching career. In the case of her lie about being Native American she deprived a minority candidate of a prestigious job. Now she casually slanders the school principal.

Joe Biden is a serial liar even claiming an entirely false biography. Elizabeth Warren can't seem to keep from making things up either. But who cares, they are Democrats.

That may very well be true. But that isn't the point.

The point is that in 2008 she said she didn't have the educations courses she needed and returned to school, took a couple of education courses and then said, 'I don’t think this is going to work out for me' and stayed home for a couple of years with her baby.

NOW she is saying she was FIRED.

So either in 2008 she was lying or now she is lying. Or I suppose she could be lying both times.

Probably now, and she has no problem lying about a principal, a real human being. But if vilifying him scores her some political points, she's going to do it.

And you jump to her defense. Think about that.

graduate school is different. it's after you've had something of a career and possibly started a family.
