Sanders Surrogate Rips Warren: You Don’t Get ‘Brownie Points’ for Fighting Trump

nina turnerElizabeth Warren‘s very public trashing of Donald Trump has been delighting many liberals, but one high-profile Bernie Sanders surrogate isn’t impressed.

Former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner appeared on SiriusXM’s Steele and Ungar this week, talking about how Warren let a lot of progressives down because she “didn’t get in this fight with Senator Sanders.”

“It’s easy for Democrats to attack Mr. Trump,” Turner said. “You don’t get any brownie points from me and other progressives for getting into a Twitter war with Mr. Donald Trump. That’s easy!”

She asked, “But when the fight was hard for Senator Bernie Sanders, where was Senator Warren?”

Lots of Sanders supporters have expressed frustrations that Warren, who many felt was a natural ally on many of his big issues, stayed neutral in the Democratic primary.

Turner acknowledged she might get flak for these statements, but simply said, “I’m a truth-teller.”
