Elizabeth Warren did an interview with Rachel Maddow of MSNBC after ending her presidential campaign.
It’s probably now safe to assume Warren will not be joining a ticket with Sanders.
She spent a significant portion of the interview complaining about Sanders’ supporters, basically calling them bullies.

Warren Hits Sanders for ‘Ugly, Dangerous’ Behavior by His Supporters
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) is failing to address online harassment perpetrated by his supporters, adding that candidates are responsible for the behavior of their supporters.
“I think there’s a real problem with this online bullying and sort of organized nastiness, and I’m not just talking about who said mean things,” Warren said during a Thursday interview with MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow. “I’m talking about some really ugly stuff that went on.”
Warren mentioned harassment experienced by members of Nevada’s Culinary Workers Union Local 226 after the union criticized Sanders’s Medicare for All proposal.
“We are responsible for the people who claim to be our supporters and do really threatening, ugly, dangerous things to other candidates,” Warren said.
Warren added that Sanders’s supporters are extreme for threatening individuals and sharing their private information.
“It’s a particular problem with Sanders’s supporters?” Maddow asked.
“It is. It just is. It’s just a factual question, and it is,” Warren responded.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren went directly to Bernie Sanders & addressed the bullying behavior of his supporters. Cantankerous Sanders is tone deaf & obstinate, particularly when it comes to any constructive criticism of him or his presidential campaign. #Maddow pic.twitter.com/u5EBkYL76K

It’s ironic. When Warren viciously went after Michael Bloomberg in the debates, her supporters called her a hero.
Yet here she is complaining about being on the receiving end of criticism from Bernie supporters.
And she thought she could be president?
