You know why people don’t like liberals? Because they lose. If liberals were so f*cking smart how come they lose so god damn always?
McAvoy was referencing the anger that many progressive voters feel towards liberals who routinely get their asses kicked by Republicans because they either don’t know how to or want to fight. That’s why love Elizabeth Warren is such a beloved and respected figure between both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton supporters. She’s a fighter who loves going after hyperbolic Republican bullies like GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Where many progressive politicians often seek “the high road” when Trump snaps at them, Warren (figuratively) throws a perfect right cross shattering his nose every time. To date, the best Trump could do in response to Warren’s brutal assault with is calling her “Pocahontas” and “goofy.” Indeed, every time she attacks him, the billionaire blowhard reverts to his whiny kindergarten true self, and it’s a beautiful thing to watch.

But recently as the Democratic contest seems to be winding down to nominating Hillary Clinton as the first female presidential nominee in American history, questions about whether or not Clinton would tap Warren to be her VP have grown louder and louder.
And not unlike any other vice president asked before being picked by the nominee, Warren vehemently denies having any interest in the job.
However, former Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania Edward Rendell took it upon himself to go a bit further than suggesting that Warren shouldn’t seek the vice presidential spot on Clinton’s ticket. Wednesday on Rich Zeoli’s radio show Rendell said that Warren “is not in any way, shape, or form ready to be commander-in-chief.”
Having realized that he just stepped in a big steaming pile of political “Oh crap,” Rendell called the show back a few minutes later to “clarify” his assessment:
I didn’t want to leave it hanging out there about Elizabeth Warren,” he said, adding that he liked her.
“Elizabeth Warren’s problem would be the same problem I’d have. I mean, let’s assume someone said, consider Gov. Rendell for vice president. I have no experience militarily, no experience in foreign affairs, and would be a difficult choice because if anything happened in week one and I became president, I would be lost,” Rendell said. “I think Elizabeth Warren, four years from now, would be a great choice to be on the ticket.
On Thursday, Warren made news by officially endorsing Hillary Clinton on the Rachel Maddow show. Of course, Maddow asked Warren if she was interested in being Clinton’s VP, and the senator gave the predictable answer of no.
Before Maddow’s final question, the host told the senator about Rendell’s comment before asking Warren if she believed that if called upon to be Clinton’s vice president she could she step up and take on the responsibility of becoming Commander and Chief should something happen to the president?
The manner in which Warren answered that question made progressives let out a collective “oooooh” as the senator dropped the mic.
Warren answered with an abrupt, no nonsense “Yes I do,” followed by a look that could mean nothing but business.
