Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has been keenly aware of her own leftist celebrity status in recent months, due in no small part to her adamant “resistance” of Donald Trump and his policies.
During the long and arduous election of 2016, Warren made herself impossible to ignore. Her supposed financial “prowess” had many democrats imagining their idea of an economic dream ticket in which democratic socialist Bernie Sanders would tap Warren as a potential Vice President. When it became readily apparent that Hillary Clinton would be wearing the liberal crown instead, a serious contingent of democratic constituents pushed for the former First Lady to snatch up Warren for her own campaign. The Massachusetts Senator’s appearances with Clinton on the campaign trail only furthered the leftists’ hopes of the lady-centric ticket.
Now, as Warren has returned to regular senate life, she has become one of the most staunch opposers to the President, continuing to slither into the spotlight any chance that she gets by lambasting Trump over and over again, in ever-tiring rants. Now, as American rock musician Kid Rock mulls the possibility of a senate run in Michigan, Warren has once again gone on the offensive in order to attach her own name to to headlines.
“’I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?’ Warren wrote in an email smugly titled ‘Senator Kid Rock (R-MI),’ according to the Boston Herald.
“’Well,’ she said, ‘maybe this is all a joke — but we all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too.’
“’And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour — but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality TV show, too.’
“The email then linked to a page where users could give a split donation to Stabenow and Warren (Lieawatha has her own 2018 campaign to run, as well, although that’s likely not going to be as contentious as Stabenow’s).”
Warren’s warning isn’t much of a political warning as much as it is an admission of fear.
With Donald Trump making the ascension to the highest office in the land, the time for unconventional politicians has arrived. This has shaken the Washington establishment to no end, with career politicians such as Warren fearing for their very livelihood. In the past, the men and women of our legislative branch have lived and worked under a blanket of allowances in which the American people simply tolerated their elected representatives’ nonsense believing that traditional politicians are the only politicians. Now, as Trump has proven, opportunities for unique candidates are legitimate, and this has many of Washington’s gravy-train passengers shaking in their boots.
