Speaking at a townhall in Lebanon, New Hampshire on Sunday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, as usual resorting to a snide attitude, responded to a questioner who asked who her “Mike Pence” would be if she were elected president. Warren sneered, “I already have a dog.”
The voter asked Warren if she ever whispered to her dog, “Who is going to be my Mike Pence?” That prompted Warren’s derisive remark, according to The Hill.
Warren continued, “I want people who are there because they believe in public service. I want people who are gonna be good partners in this fight. I want people who are willing to pick up the tools that are already there and to use them on behalf of the public. It’s so easy to get discouraged and to say Mitch McConnell just ruins everything. There’s a lot of truth in that, too, but it isn’t everything. There is a lot we can still do.”
Warren added, “I want smart people. … I want people who have ideas. I want people who have worked in the fields. I want people who believe that they can be part of putting government on the side of our citizens instead of on the sides of giant corporations.”
Warren’s patronizing attitude has been on display in many ways as she continues on her elitist path; last October, speaking at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and CNN’s presidential town hall event, Warren insulted men of faith, implying that they would never find a woman who would marry them.
Morgan Cox, Chair of the Human Rights Campaign’s Board of Directors, asked Warren, “Let’s say you’re on the campaign trail and you’re approached—” Warren interrupted, “I have been.” Cox finished, “You have been, yes. And a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’ What is your response?”
First, Warren assumed that only a man of faith would believe in Biblical values and that a woman of faith would not take Biblical injunctions seriously, as she replied, “Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that.” She continued, “And I’m gonna say, ‘Then just marry one woman.’”
As the crowd laughed and applauded, Warren jibed, “I’m cool with that.” The crowd gave a sustained ovation, prompting Warren, trying for one last zinger, to add bitingly, “Assuming you can find one.”
In March 2019, Warren said that Pence was not an honorable man and engaged in “homophobia and attacks on people who are different from himself.”
Warren was appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where she was asked by “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski, “Is Mike Pence an honorable man?” Warren answered immediately, “No.” Brzezinski was taken aback by the immediacy of the response, managing, “Okay, would you like to expound upon that?”
Warren gladly continued, “Sure. Anyone who engages in the kind of homophobia and attacks on people who are different from himself is not an honorable person. That’s not what honorable people do.”
Newsweek reported, “In July 2016, after the Trump-Pence Republican ticket was announced, Warren said Pence ‘is famous for trying to control women’s bodies,’ and that the two men with their ‘sexism’ are ‘in line with the party platform.’”
