Yet Another Lie From Elizabeth Warren

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told a group of supporters in Iowa that she was inspired to run for president "after Donald Trump was elected."

A voter asked the Massachusetts senator, "when did you first think maybe someday I'd like to be president?" at a campaign event on Sunday.

Warren responded with, "it was when after Donald Trump was elected. And it was just that moment of, this is so deeply wrong. So wrong."

However, Warren's own memoir, This Fight is Our Fight, tells a different story. The Washington Examiner reports that in her book, Warren writes that she considered a White House run against Hillary Clinton in 2013.

She wrote, "For me, 2016 started back in early 2013, when people began asking if I was planning to run for president. Huh? I had been in elected office for only a few weeks. Before that, I'd spent a year setting up a federal agency. The way I saw it, the question deserved a pretty simple answer: anyone who wanted to put themselves forward for president of the United States ought to have more experience than that."
