Liz Warren’s Phony, Beer-Guzzling PR Stunt Explained

You can see the smoke and mirrors if you look closely enough.

Liz Warren

Elizabeth Warren just couldn’t wait.  Her desire to jump head first into the 2020 election cycle began yesterday as she announced that she had formed an exploratory committee to examine her chances at winning the White House.

Of course, Warren will have a massive, uphill battle ahead of her.  Not only will there likely be countless other democratic candidates emerging from the woodwork in the coming weeks, but she gambled and lost big on a DNA stunt several months ago that tarnished her credibility mightily.

The public relations team working with Warren will have to remedy this embarrassment and fast.  That’s why, just hours after announcing her candidacy, Warren was convinced to live stream herself cooking and drinking beer; a classic political move meant to connect the candidate to the “everyman” archetype.

Well, I suppose if she can’t claim to be Native American anymore, she’ll have to settle for claiming to be ‘MERICAN.

Many saw the move as blatant pandering to voters in the middle, politically, and in the middle class economically.

The problem with that is that this video is nothing short of Hollywood, under the veneer of “down home” goodness.

First of all, Warren’s kitchen is lit like a movie set.  No matter her distance from the camera, she is in perfect lighting.  I don’t suggest trying to duplicate this at home without some extra lighting equipment.

Then there’s the “cameo” from her husband who appears to have been standing next to the refrigerator  to which Warren walked to retrieve her beer.  The PR firm likely didn’t want it to look like Warren was some bossy ballbuster who made her husband bring her drinks.  That doesn’t play well in the midwest.

Then comes the most telling bit for this author:  Warren’s thoughtful concealment of the beer label.  You can almost catch her remembering to do so when she first appears back on camera.  This is coached behavior, undoubtedly, with Warren’s team not looking to alienate any particular brand.  All we know is that Warren waited to get back on camera to twist the top off, so we know it isn’t some snooty, artisanal craft beer that you need a bottle opener for.  It’s ‘MERICAN beer.

Certainly, Warren has achieved what she hoped to, but for those willing to look a little closer, the smoke and mirrors are just barely visible.

WHAT. THE. HECK?? This sounds like kind of a big deal… From Daily Wire: Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, who resigned from the company on Thursday amid his alleged ties to a government operation, made bombshell accusations on CNN late on Thursday night, claiming that top FBI officials reached out to him in 2015-2016 to conduct law enforcement activities that turned out to be political espionage. Byrne appeared to indicate that the request came from FBI agents after it was passed down from a top FBI official, who he later says he learned was anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok. Byrne said that the political espionage operation targeted four candidates: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.

VIDEO PROOF: Democrat Rep. Says We Need the Undocumented to Mow ‘Our Beautiful Lawns’

Will the MSM care? Nah.

Imagine if New Jersey Democrat Rep. Tom Malinowski – Who? – was a Republican. He would, unequivocally, beyond a shadow of a doubt, be forced to resign from office. No question about it. Here’s why… From Daily Wire: Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) explained to his constituents earlier in the week that illegal immigrants are necessary members of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District because they are willing to take on the jobs that the community’s teenagers will no longer do. Malinowski noted, “We have to think about the jobs because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that, like it or not, for better or worse, Americans are not willing to take.” He added, “I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal – most of them documented – but certainly some of them are not. Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask but a lot of those workers are undocumented.” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day. In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens. She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them. See for yourself: https://twitter.com/IWV/status/1152186873252651014?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152186873252651014&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-surfaces-showing-hypocrite-pelosi-sounding-a-lot-like-trump%2F Pelosi doesn’t get along well with young House Democrats. She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention. See for yourself: Speaker Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they…
