Even though Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren wasn’t on the debate stage Wednesday for night two of CNN’s Democratic primary debates, the network’s journalists still declared her the winner.
After the debate finally wrapped up, CNN’s crack team of partisan journalists wasted little time in declaring Warren the stand out candidate. One the first to share their thoughts was senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson, who immediately proclaimed: “real winner tonight was Elizabeth Warren”.
“I mean, if you look back at her debate performance, I think she's the best political athlete on the field,” Henderson continued as she pooh-poohed the performances of former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris (CA).
A couple of minutes later, Anderson Cooper shared his two cents and fantasized about what it would have looked like if Warren had been on the stage Wednesday with her superior energy levels.
