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.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

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.

Michelle Obama Is Blaming Her ‘Low-Grade Depression’ On the Trump Administration [Details]

Oy vey!

Michelle Obama and other Americans who will vote for Joe Biden in November seem to forget the damage Barack’s administration caused for nearly a full decade. If they weren’t race-baiting or pandering, the members of the team really didn’t know what to do with themselves. The nation is a better place now that the Obamas are out of the spotlight. But that’s not where they want to be. From The Daily Wire: Former first lady Michelle Obama claimed that she has been suffering from “low-grade depression” recently, and pinpointed the Trump administration’s response to the nation’s racial problems as a cause. During an interview on her new podcast with Washington Post columnist Michele Norris, Obama said that, like many Americans, the coronavirus pandemic and the turmoil roiling the nation since George Floyd’s death have led her to some low points. CONTINUED: “There have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have felt too low,” Obama said. “You know, I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself.” Claiming she has been experiencing sleep disturbances, Obama continued, “I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1290996047104409601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1290996047104409601%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-claims-he-didnt-mean-to-make-racist-comments-about-blacks-despite-doubling-down-fails-to-apologize

He is everywhere – even inside a random Walmart in North Versailles, Pennsylvania. The clip you’ll see below went viral for all the right reasons. You can take the people out of the church, but you can’t take the church out of the people. From Post Millennial: A video of a worship service happening inside a Walmart, reportedly in North Versailles, Pennsylvania, has the internet chirping. The churchgoers took to Walmart to come together in worship, as churches have been closed, but Walmarts are open. WATCH: https://twitter.com/LifeNewsHQ/status/1291411407947407363?s=20 The left has never been a friend of Jesus. How some liberals can consider themselves Christians, while supporting the atrocity that is abortion, makes little to no sense whatsoever. On Monday, Bernie Sanders-supporting radical Shaun King tweeted something he should feel pretty silly about. But he probably doesn’t. From Daily Wire: Shaun King, the controversial Black Lives Matter activist known for pushing false claims, called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275106946916499456?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275106946916499456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p He then followed it up with this gem… https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275113067555303424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275113067555303424&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p
