Records contradict Warren's claim she was fired for being visibly pregnant
Democratic representative and presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren is once again under fire for another claim of hers. This comes second to her claiming she's Native American. In her speech in Nevada, Warren said she lost her teaching job due to her baby bump or as she says, she was visibly pregnant. However, a 2008 video resurfaced lately and in that video, she said that the reason she vacated that position is because she doesn't have the proper credentials to stay.
So, which is it?
She told her supporters in Carson City that "by the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days - wish me luck and hire someone else for the job."
The 2008 video tells another story. The YouTube clip posted back in January 2008 shows Warren telling her interviewer Harry Kreisler about her undergraduate degree in speech pathology and audiology. She said that she didn't have the requirements to continue teaching at that school, so she left. This claim is supported by an information found on her Wikipedia page, showing that Warren returned to graduate school to take extra courses in education. Before that, she was teaching on an "emergency certificate" that requires her to take those extra courses.
In that clip, she said, "my first year post-graduation, I worked - it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year , and then that summer, I actually didn't have the education courses, so I was on an 'emergency certificate'. I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, 'I don't think this is going to work out for me. I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, 'What am I going to do?"
Netizens are now worrying as to whether or not Warren is fit to be president if her narrative keeps on changing in such a way that it's becoming disturbing.
