During a radio interview on SiriusXM’s “Steele and Unger,” former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner said she was not impressed with Warren’s social media attacks against Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump.
“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.
“But when the fight was hard for Sen. Bernie Sanders, where was Sen. Warren?”

Turner isn’t the only one that is not exactly pleased with Warren’s decision to endorse Hillary Clinton. The threads on Warren’s Facebook page are full of one-time supporters that now feel betrayed by her. In a final show of protest there, fans are leaving a comment and then ‘unlikng’ her page.
Once the darling of the progressive side, Warren has all but lost that standing now. View the video clip from The Bill Moyers Show below to see how Warren used to view Hillary Clinton:
“You will not find that I ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that I ever received.” – Hillary Clinton, in the fifth Democratic debate, Feb. 4, 2016
Right after this statement was made the Sanders campaign put out a news release titled “Elizabeth Warren on How Wall Street has influenced Hillary Clinton.” The release explained that in a 2003 book, Warren blamed campaign contributions from banking interests as to why Clinton flip-flopped on bankruptcy laws.
Why are so many Sanders supporters this upset with Warren though? Read here to get a little more understanding as to what role Bernie’s campaign ‘thought’ Warren would play during his campaign.
