So, just as Elizabeth Warren's campaign for president hits the skids and Bernie Sanders appears to be surging, a "he said, she said" controversy erupts between the pair.

Somebody is lying, but who could it be?

CNN broke with a story this week based on the accounts of four people "with knowledge of the situation" who claim that Bernie visited Warren's D.C. apartment in December of 2018 where the two discussed the upcoming race for the Democratic nomination for president. According to the virtuous teller of truths at CNN, Berniemeister is alleged to have told the fake Indian that a woman cannot be elected president. Wow, that would make him a real sexist and could cost him the female vote in the primaries, no?

Bernie denies ever saying that but Warren confirms the report as true. So who do you believe?

Bernie Sanders is a whack job whose policies would destroy our economy and therefore our country, but in the 30 plus years that I have been a "Bernie watcher," I have never known him to be dishonest. Crazy, yes – but a liar, no.

Elizabeth Warren is also a whack job whose policies would destroy our economy and therefore our country and is also a known habitual liar. Warren has lied about everything including the color of her skin. She claimed to be an Indian to advance herself and her career. Oh, and what about when she swore she would not be a candidate for president if she was re-elected to the U.S. Senate? Yeah.

If I had to chose sides in this one, my vote says Bernie Sanders is telling the truth and Elizabeth warren is full of pow-wow chow. Keep in mind, too, Bernie was cheated out of the nomination in 2016 by a woman who went on the win the popular vote. A woman that he endorsed. And how convenient is it for this story to hit the press just days before the first caucuses?

Yeah, my instincts tell me Warren is telling a whopper.
