Conservative men are melting down over Elizabeth Warren’s speech

On Monday, Elizabeth Warren delivered what some are considering a cornerstone speech of her campaign for the Democratic nomination.

Speaking to 20,000 in New York City’s Washington Square Park, Warren spoke about of corporate greed and government corruption, a message to rally behind as she continues to rise in the polls.

She also took a moment, as a woman, to shout out women, saying “We are not here because of men at all.”

It was a nice line, nodding to the importance and accomplishments of women given that, you know, she is a woman.

And three days later, far-right men have found the clip and are upset.

Their argument? Men exist, why didn’t Warren say men exist, won’t someone please say men exist???

Would you love a fact-check of Warren’s quips from all the guys of the far-right?

Like that men do sex to make babies and you can’t make babies without men.

Or the fact that men, like women, vote.

Or that it’s mean to hate men.

Did you know that Manhattan, the island, was bought by a man?

It really does take a man to handle a light ribbing like this with such impressive tantrums.
