During the embarrassingly long delay (which is still ongoing at the time of this writing) in the Iowa Democratic Party counting the caucus results for the first contest of the 2020 Primary race, candidates addressed their supporters to keep their spirits up as it approached 11PM. Keith Murphy, a business owner and former State Representative in New Hampshire said of the ridiculous delay: “The people who can’t seem to count people standing around in Iowa school gyms are the same people telling you to trust them with the entire US health care industry.”
Amy Klobuchar was the first to address her voters in Iowa. She is not a great speaker, sounds awkward, and is not in the same class as Biden, Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg, but she did correctly mention in her brief speech that she is “punching way beyond our weight”. Next, Joe Biden spoke briefly to his voters, confident that he would walk away from Iowa with at least a few of their 41 delegates. He sounded as young, quick, and sharp as he has in at least a decade. Elizabeth Warren was the third of the candidates to speak to her supporters.
Warren shot out of the gate with a very well-rehearsed speech. “Donald Trump and I see America from very different perspectives….we had very different upbringings…” is essentially what she said. She explained in her well-delivered speech that Trump grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth and a $200,000/year allowance since he was a toddler. Warren, on the other hand, grew up in Oklahoma (where life is tough for the Cherokees) in a tiny house that she shared with her parents and three brothers. She said that she is the true blue collar woman of the people because she grew up so impoverished that she had to work odd jobs just to get by. Trump dodged the draft by being a loser who claimed that he had ‘bone spurs’, while the Warren boys all went to the military, and so on. Trump is a rich, entitled, elite, and Warren is a real working class citizen, right?
Firstly, Warren is one of the more powerful members of the US Senate, which is the world’s most powerful government body. She has been in the Senate for 7 years.
Secondly, she earns roughly a $1,000,000 per year, making her one of the richest people on Earth.
Third, she sent at least one of her children to a very expensive private school, despite lying about it explicitly and claiming to support public schools for everyone and opposing school choice for the real working class citizens.
Fourth, she attended Rutgers University Law School, which is something that only the ‘elites’ manage to do.
Fifth, Warren seemingly lied about being a native American in order to acquire a job as a professor at the Harvard Law School, something that poor peasants like Warren claims to be cannot often manage to accomplish.
Sixth, Warren is an authoritarian communist who believes that federal politicians should own and/or control nearly all property, money, and commerce in the US.
If you want to vote for someone who feels like they are just another working class American, consider supporting someone like Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang, or Donald Trump – who may be rich, but still speaks and acts like the average teenage boy from New York.
