During an MSNBC panel discussion Sunday, one Republican consultant explained Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) lack of success in the early 2020 primary races is due to her not being a "connectible female." It drew an expression of shock and disgust from her Democratic counterpoint.

The moment came during MSNBC's Kendis Gibson Sunday show, where the panel discussed the 2020 female candidates and their electoral strategy.

"It seems to have been so hard for the women to rise above the white noise of all of these other candidates and I don’t really know what they’re supposed to do," said AboveTheLaw editor Elie Mystal. "Elizabeth Warren putts out a plan like every day. Right? She keeps dropping hits like every single day, and she struggles coverage."

Warren has proved herself to be the "policy" candidate, lending details to typical campaign talking points. While candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may have ideas and soundbites, Warren backs it up with a plan to put the promises in place.

That wasn't enough for Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour.

"She's not really a connectable female," she said.

"Do you know how hard it is to make tax law interesting? She can do it!" Mysel said.

"Not a lot of people meet her one on one and not have an opportunity in a fundraiser or rally, and the only contact is probably over television, and it’s just not a connectible in my opinion, not really a connectible female," Nikpour said.
