December 9, 2019 - Warren Says She Will Not Be Quiet


At a campaign event in Las Vegas, Warren says: “In my life nobody ever gave me anything. I fought for it every inch of the way. I will outwork, I will out organize and I will outlast Donald Trump or anybody the Republicans put up. I’ve lived enough of my life with men – and it’s mostly been men –  telling me to sit down and be quiet. I have stood up and fought back. And this is the fight of our lifetime.” This line is consistent with previous challenges Warren has made to claims that she is too angry or aggressive. It also references the well-known moment when Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) silenced Warren on the Senate floor after “she had been warned,” but, “nevertheless she persisted.”
