Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is shopping around for a running mate. Recently, there has been a lot of buzz around Senator Elizabeth Warren—especially since Hillary has previously stated that she is absolutely reviewing female candidates as possible Vice Presidential nominees.
Warren would curb the far-Leftist craving from Sanders supporters whom Hillary would have a hard time winning over. This rings especially true since early exit polling in West Virginia on Tuesday showed that nearly half, 44 percent, of the socialist senator’s voters would cast their ballot for fellow populist, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump come November.
Here are seven things you need to know about Hillary’s plausible VP pick:
1. Warren is nicknamed “Fauxcahontas” because she lied about being Native American.
In one of the most bizarre, dragged-out lies of any politician, Warren checked the “Native American” box on her applications to University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University, seemingly to receive a leg up. (She received both jobs, by the way.) There has been no proof to substantiate Warren’s claim that she is “part Delaware” and “part Cherokee.”
But it gets better: The woman, clearly reveling in delusion, contributed to a cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow” and signed it “Elizabeth Warren—Cherokee”
You can’t make this stuff up.
Warren is now rightfully nicknamed “Fauxcahontas.”
2. Warren is a radical—especially on abortion.
Elizabeth Warren is an extremist when it comes to abortion and Planned Parenthood—much like Hillary Clinton. Warren hasn’t expressed favor for any restrictions on abortion, even for pain-capable babies. Even after devastating videos emerged in the summer showing bins of baby parts and Planned Parenthood employees callously haggling over the prices of said parts, the senator fully backed the abortion mill, ripped Republicans and continuously uttered the lie that the videos were “heavily edited” even after their release in full.
Here’s more on her pro-abortion stances via On The Issues:
- No bankruptcy for pro-life groups to avoid court levies. (Apr 2014)
- No Supreme Court nominees who oppose legal abortion. (Sep 2012)
- Staunch Pro-Abortion stance. (Aug 2011)
- Supports public abortion funding. (Oct 2012)
- Supports churches providing birth control. (Oct 2012)
- Ban anti-abortion limitations on abortion services. (Nov 2013)
- Access safe, legal abortion without restrictions. (Jan 2015)
- Endorsed Endorsed by EMILY's list for pro-choice Democratic women. (Aug 2012)
3. Warren is the only female senator who has not publicly endorsed Hillary for president.
As The Daily Wire reported in February, Warren was the only female Democratic senator not to endorse Hillary’s presidential bid. Apparently mounting pressure from others—who also shared the bonding-factor of having a uterus like Hillary—pressured Warren to endorse. Warren refused.
4. One of Warren’s main crusades (like Sanders) is tackling student loans.
Warren has been in the forefront of the student debt crisis, much like Hillary rival Bernie Sanders. One of Warren’s most notable proposals has been “skin-in-the-game” student loans, where colleges partake in the risk of giving out loans. The proposal has had mixed—mostly steering on the positive side—reviews, and even some conservatives, like Speaker Paul Ryan, have proposed similar measures.
5. Warren has a sorted past Hillary.
Warren and Hillary don’t have the best of relationships. As mentioned, Warren has yet to endorse the former secretary of state despite the fact that they both have a uterus (completely breaking Leftist code). In the past, Warren has slammed Hillary for being bought by special interests and changing her policy positions to appease big money.
6. Warren is filthy rich.
Surprise! The Leftist hero of the working class is filthy rich. CNN Money reports:
Warren, the Harvard bankruptcy law professor elected to the Senate in 2012, is worth between $3.7 million and $10 million.
That's not including the three-story Victorian home in Cambridge, Mass., that she owns with her husband and fellow Harvard law professor, Bruce Mann. It's now assessed at $1.9 million, according to city property records.
While she's not in the uppermost wealth echelon of Congress, she's not doing too badly either. Roll Call recently ranked her the 76th wealthiest out of 541 senators and representatives, based on her minimum net worth in 2013.
Her average net worth of $8.75 million, including her home, secures her a spot the Top 1% bracket in terms of wealth.
Surprise! The Leftist hero of the working class is filthy rich.
7. Warren would be used as an attack dog—a fearless one.
Whatever you may think about Warren and her extremist views, the woman will attack, and not flinch. The senator has been known to ream Republicans time and again and she has already begun targeting Trump, calling him a “serious threat” and a “loser.”
It is still unclear if attacks from Warren will prove effective on Trump, as no attacks have considerably hurt Trump thus far, but it wouldn’t be from a lack of effort if she were the VP nominee.
