Warren Continues to Leave Out Important Detail in Her College Experience

BY:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) appeared Wednesday on ABC's "The View" to promote her new book, This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.

During the discussion, Warren described her experience at college but left out one important detail.

Warren said the only way she was able to graduate college was because she went to a commuter school that cost $50 per semester.

"I wanted to go to college, and there was no money for college. The way I finally made it through is I graduated from a commuter college that cost $50 a semester," Warren said.

What Warren did not mention is that she also attended George Washington University for two years before leaving early to get married. The book notes her time at GWU, one of the nation's most expensive private universities, but Warren rarely mentions it in her public speeches and appearances.

It is unclear why Warren leaves out this detail in her speeches, but critics say she may be appealing to the far-left progressive wing of the Democratic Party for a possible presidential campaign in 2020. Warren has denied that she will run for president, but her answers have left some unconvinced.
