The day the music died for Sen. Warren ….

Welp, she called it a day … declaring some victory of sorts and pulling out of the presidential race.

She insinuates gender bias, some pundits opine that she was totally inauthentic – having been caught in a couple of whoppers, and some say that her policy ideas were just too radical for mainstream America.

In my opinion, the demise of Warren’s campaign can be traced to a single incident that went viral…

==============

In the run-up to the Iowa caucuses,  Warren was confronted by a man who said that her plan to forgive student debt would “screw” people who paid for college tuition by themselves or successfully paid off their debt.

The transcript of the exchange:

I just wanted to ask one question.

My daughter is getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?”

Of course not, Warren said.

“So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money and those of us who did the right thing get screwed.”

“No, you’re not going to get screwed,” Warren assured him.

“Of course we do.

My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations.

I saved my money.

He made more than I did. But I worked a double shift, worked extra — my daughter has worked since she was 10. So, you’re laughing at us.”

“No, I’m not,” Warren said.

“Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing,” he said.

“We did the right thing, and we get screwed.”

That guy said what’s on every rational person’s mind.

He said it clearly, emotionally … and right to her face.

Suddenly, her “free stuff” platform was laid naked … and Warren’s campaign was toast.
