(CNSNews.com) – Capitalizing on one of her well-publicized debate moments, Sen. Elizabeth Warren walked into a CNN-sponsored town hall on Thursday with a contract that she said would release anyone bound by a nondisclosure agreement with Michael Bloomberg.
“I wrote up a release and covenant not to sue,” Warren said, holding the document. “And all that Mayor Bloomberg has to do is download it. I’ll text it. Sign it. And then the women, or men, will be free to speak and tell their own stories.”
Warren said she thinks the fact that Bloomberg has admitted to having multiple non-disclosure agreements should disqualify him from being the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee, yet she said she would support him if he turns out to be the Democrat nominee:
“I will support the Democratic nominee because I believe that everyone on that stage would make a better president than Donald Trump,” Warren said.
The town hall moderator, CNN’s Erin Burnett, asked Warren, “So I just want to be clear, you would support Michael Bloomberg even though he called someone a horse-faced lesbian?”
“What we’ve got right now is a chance for the Nevada voters to make sure Michael Bloomberg is not our nominee, and that’s what I’m asking for,” Warren replied.
“But you just said he should be disqualified,” Burnett said.
“I do believe he should be disqualified, and I’m out here making that pitch to the votes every single day. They will make the decision whether he’s disqualified or not, in the same way that the Republicans made the decision whether or not Donald Trump was disqualified.
“I like to think the Democratic Party is better than having an arrogant billionaire who harasses women and engages in sexual discrimination for its leader.”
