By the end of her NBC Nightly News report on Thursday, it was clear that chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell was let down by Senator Elizabeth Warren dropping out the Democratic race for president. It was loaded with gushy declarations about how iconic the Senator was with no mention of her lies about Native American heritage.
“A field that began with six women, Warren is the last leading woman to bow out,” Mitchell declared, disregarding the campaign of Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D). Of course, that was a tee up to interject speculation that sexism was what caused her to lose. “Her departure, leaving the race to two white men in their 70s, did gender play a role?”
Mitchell’s question was entirely rhetorical because she had a clip for that.
