Elizabeth Warren is a grandstanding phony

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was right to invoke Rule 19 against Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for her personal harangue against her “friend and colleague” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). Dignity is flowing out of Washington and Warren is doing more than her part as she desperately tries to prove she isn’t just another tiresome Hillary Clinton. What a pretentious, grandstanding phony.
Warren is likely running for president in 2020, and she is trying to rally the embittered left and Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) crowd to her side. And her stunt disparaging now-Attorney General Sessions on the Senate floor, plus her tweet threatening that “If Jeff Sessions makes even the tiniest attempt to bring his racism, sexism & bigotry into @TheJusticeDept, he’ll hear from all of us” is a little much, even allowing for a shallow, pandering candidate’s sad attempts to crowd into the news cycle. Is Warren really the guardian of all that is fair and just and the defender of the oppressed? Since when?
