Warren smears cops: 'I am not a woman of color' so I've never been 'slammed into the wall by a police officer'

Elizabeth Warren is seen on video smearing law enforcement at an event in north Las Vegas where she admit to not being a woman of color and suggests that's why she wasn't ever thrown across the hood of a car or slammed into a wall. She also made a promise that if she was in the White House, that wouldn't happen. That's a promise no president can make because, despite what any president says, if a suspect or criminal does something that warrants a physical confrontation, there is no president who can stop an officer from protecting themselves when needed.

Warren is quoted as saying:

I get it. I am not a woman of color. I never got thrown across the hood. I have the privilege of never having been slammed into the wall by a police officer. But I tell you this. I listen to people who have. I listen and I say, when I am president of the United States, that is not going to happen here.

She faced backlash from WIBC host, Tony Katz, who lashed out after Warren's comments. He said:

“What Elizabeth Warren is doing here is disparaging all cops. According to her, if you’re a woman of color, you’ve been slammed into a hood or a wall – you’re more likely to get slammed into a hood or a wall.

“Let her figure out how to spin this, but nobody asks her or says to her, ‘Are you saying that all police officers are racist and slamming people against the wall?’ They should force her to recognize her failure, but no one ever does it.”
