Elizabeth Warren, according to a new book, felt she didn’t win the Iowa Caucuses in 2020 and subsequently the Democrat nomination for President because she isn’t a man, even claiming some voters told her they’d have supported her if she “had a penis.”
The claim surfaced in a new book by NBC News correspondent Ali Vitali titled, Electable: Why America Hasn’t Put a Woman in the White House … Yet.
One tale relayed from the campaign trail involved a question from a voter just prior to the Iowa caucuses who wanted to know how the Massachusetts senator planned to convince white men over 50 that she was the best candidate.
Her third-place finish, though, would later be used as evidence that a woman couldn’t break through. Not that she wasn’t the best candidate, of course, but that her gender was holding her back.
“But here and now she offered her plainest view of the landscape yet: Everyone comes up to me and says, ‘I would vote for you, if you had a penis,’” the story goes.
“Everyone comes up to me and says, ‘I would vote for you, if you had a penis.’” – Elizabeth Warren, who never fabricated anything in her life

Elizabeth Warren Claims She Would Have Gotten More Votes If She Had a Penis

There is so much to unpack in the claim by Senator Elizabeth Warren that she would have gotten more votes or even possibly won the Iowa Caucus if she had a penis.
Let’s give it a shot:
- Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Iowa Caucus over Bernie Sanders and, as far as we know, she did not have a penis at the time.
- This is the 2020 Iowa Democratic presidential caucuses she’s talking about. Sounds to me like she’s implying Democrats are misogynists?
- It’s unlikely anyone ever uttered the words ‘I would vote for you, if you had a penis,’ let alone everyone, as the story claims.
- If she thought she’d get more votes by having said penis, why didn’t she simply claim she had one? When she wanted to further her career by pretending to be a person of color, she repeatedly claimed to have Native American ancestry. Sounds like she *ahem* dropped the ball here.
- Democrats don’t know what a woman is, anyway.
Elizabeth Warren says people come up to her all the time and say they’d vote for her for President if she had a penis. SUUUUUUUURRRRRE, whatever you say, Chief.

Ted Cruz Fires Back At Elizabeth Warren
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) fired back during a speech to supporters at the seventh annual Basque Fry in Gardnerville, Nevada over the weekend in what may be an all-time hilarious response.
“Elizabeth Warren told reporters that a guy came up to her and said, ‘I would have voted for you if only you had a penis,’” he told the crowd.
“In today’s Democrat Party, how do we know she doesn’t? How could you possibly know?” he quipped.
“‘My name is Elizabeth, call me Bob, this is my beer,’” he said in a mocking voice as if to emulate Warren.

Cruz also said the story about voters telling Elizabeth Warren they’d have voted for her if she had a penis is “a lie” and “not even 1/1,024th true.”
That last part is a reference to the possible percentage of Native American blood Warren has as a result of a DNA test whose results she used in an attempt to convince people of her heritage.
The beer reference we’re guessing was in response to Warren’s super-awkward Instagram live chat session with supporters in 2019 in which she tried her damndest to appear down to Earth with the common folk by cracking open a beer and hanging with her “sweetie.”
Because face-planting drunk into a van at 11:00 in the morning worked so well for the last Democrat presidential candidate… pic.twitter.com/yGc8rOg0go
