Democrat presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren was caught flying a private plane to Iowa on Monday and, when she realized that she was being recorded, ran and hid behind a staffer.

The video “shows Elizabeth Warren, whose Democratic presidential campaign has made railing against the ‘rich and powerful’ a central theme, stepping off a private jet in Iowa Monday night,” Fox News reported. “At one point in the video, Warren seems to walk behind a staffer after apparently noticing the camera filming her in Des Moines.”


In October, Warren was asked at a climate event in New Hampshire, “What specific steps have you taken in your campaign to ensure that your campaign’s environmental impact is as limited as possible?”

Warren responded by telling host Laura Knoy: “So, I’ve mostly been flying commercial, um, but we’ve been trying to look at other ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint and it’s everything from the kind of car we drive, uh and down to … do we purchase offsets, can we make that work as a way to try to reduce the footprint.”

Daily Wire Editor in Chief Josh Hammer wrote an in-depth profile piece on Warren last year:

Elizabeth Ann Warren has served since 2013 as a U.S. senator from Massachusetts. A member of the Democratic Party and a former Harvard Law School professor, Warren is a firm progressive who routinely takes far-left, populist-inspired political stances on policies pertaining to the economy and the regulatory state. Warren, who has a checkered and controversial past with respect to her alleged — but scientifically dubious — Cherokee ancestry, was born in Oklahoma City and grew up in Oklahoma. She attended George Washington University before attaining a bachelor’s degree at the University of Houston. She went to law school at Rutgers University.

Warren’s first marriage ended in divorce, and she is now married to Bruce Mann, who is also a Harvard Law School professor. Warren has two children.

Warren’s debatable claim to partial Cherokee ancestry has been the source of much drama and partisan bickering. In late 2018, Warren released the results of a DNA test that showed she might be as little as 1/1024th Cherokee. She was subsequently criticized by the Cherokee Nation.

Warren’s far-left economic and social stances, which were somewhat avant-garde at the time of her election to the U.S. Senate, are now mainstream for the Democratic Party. Prior to her election to the Senate, Warren was instrumental in the development and founding of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which was created by the 2010 Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Conservatives have routinely assailed the CFPB as being unnecessarily intrusive, unconstitutionally funded, and unconstitutionally structured.

She is now running for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination and has recently polled in third place, behind only former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
