From 2016. Warren's camp, not Warren herself, didn't trust him because of this, it's painfully obvious.What history are you refering to? Up until this point, Warren has aligned a lot with Sanders on certain policies, even if in details there are more differences than is often apparent. Also, why talk about this now? It smells like desperation, which is understandable, but ain't going to gain her any votes. As far as I am aware Sanders has a good record of supporting women's rights, female candidates to congress, etc...
It isn't a trainwreck and this is the problem. It is a squabble, and an embarrasing one. The trainwreck is the media hype and some of the public reaction that surrounds this shit. It is like there is a lack of willingness to filter between important and trivial shit. I mean the fact that this was brought up by the chair and not a bunch of other policy related stuff is the issue.
We're not talking about one event, several lead to this. Every interaction between Bernie, Warren and their campaigns over the last few days stemming from the script Bernie's camp had escalated this conflict far beyond what it had to be. I worry this won't be the end of it in the primaries. It was never just an awkward conversation between two candidates in '18, that's just the biggest obstacle at the moment.
The media hype is making this a train wreck, but they wouldn't have gotten the chance to achieve this had the minor scuffles been adequately addressed earlier. I blame a lot of this on Bernie being tone deaf reacting to Warren, he has no idea how to de-escalate or understand her.
