Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren appeared on CNN on Wednesday.
She spoke with Anderson Cooper.
During their interview, Warren appeared to not know how many branches of government there are.
Might be kind of important for a presidential candidate to know this.
Cooper: “Do you ever think, look, the realistic end game is that Republicans get two thirds of what they want and the Democrats have to settle for the shorter straw? Is that how the balance of power really works?“
Warren: “Well, let’s talk about the balance of power. There are two coequal branches of government, the president of the United States and the Congress.“

Of course, the three branches of government are legislative, judicial, and executive.
Democrat Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a similar “branches of government” problem not long ago.
Is there a patern here?
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — Uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House."

President Trump recently trolled Warren harder than he ever has.
He also sent this tweet…
Game. Set. Match.
Warren is so upset with the government shutdown that she’s donating her salary to foreigners.
Not a big deal to her. She’s a multi-millionaire.
What’s funny is the logic.
Shouldn’t Warren donate her salary to federal AMERICAN workers?
Over 7,000 people in Massachusetts have been sent home or are working without pay during the #TrumpShutdown. Until @realDonaldTrump re-opens the government, I'm donating my salary to @HIASrefugees, a nonprofit that helps refugees and makes our country stronger in the process.

More from Warren:
Today, I was sworn-in for my second term in the United States Senate. It’s been my honor to represent the Commonwealth, and I plan to keep on fighting for a government that works for everyone, not just the wealthy and the well-connected. pic.twitter.com/RVz2rqB23q

Our government is supposed to work for working families. Instead:
🛑25% of the federal government shut down.
🛑380,000 workers sent home.
🛑420,000 federal employees working without pay.
Stop playing politics with people's lives, @realDonaldTrump. End the shutdown.

The American people deserve better. They deserve a government that works for them.

During a press conference announcing she had formed a 2020 exploratory committee, Warren executed the five rules of dodgeball to perfection.
She dodged, ducked, dipped, dived, and dodged questions from the press left and right, proving she’s an experienced politician.
She couldn’t answer anything directly.
From Daily Wire:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) dodged a question about her disastrous DNA test stunt at her press conference on Monday where she announced that she launched an exploratory committee for president.
Warren: “I never thought I would run for anything, ever, in my life, but America’s middle class is getting hollowed out, and opportunity for too many of our young people is shrinking. So, I’m in this fight all the way. … I’m going to build a grassroots campaign. … Because this is how we’re going to build the movement that will change America.“
Who could forget when Warren’s DNA test showed she was 1/1024th Native American?

I have big reservations about Elizabeth Warren running. Get it?

Warren has privately met with Native leaders to hear out criticisms from D.N.A. test, but publicly, she is still refusing to give an inch. Last month, even her own allies told me this was a “strategic failure” that was “depressing and unforgettable.”https://t.co/NVIDJlMI53 https://t.co/zFBMwMqxXj

From Daily Wire:
According to a nonpartisan watchdog group, two Democratic senators were the “top ethics violators of 2018” because they solicited donations by trumpeting their antagonism to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation during the hearings to confirm him. Those two senators were — drum roll — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
FACT has exhibited its non-partisan perspective before, having cited Republican speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as some of the “top ethics violators of 2018” because they did not pursue allegations of the sexual harassment of congressional staffers and interns with enough vigor.
Trump was asked if Warren has a shot against him in a hypothetical general election.
He only needed three words.
“…ask her psychiatrist.”
Pete Hegseth: Elizabeth Warren "says she’s in the fight all the way Mr. President, do you really think she believes she can win?"

Warren says Trump inspires “domestic right-wing terrorism.”
Yeah, for real.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke at American University Washington College of Law in a speech billed as foreign policy-focused; however, it included criticism of President Donald Trump and his policies and claimed he promotes white nationalism and encourages “domestic right-wing terrorism.”
Warren: “He cozies up to white nationalists. He undermines the free press and incites violence against journalists.“
“The 2016 election provided a stark reminder that we must remain vigilant and fight for our democracy every single day,” Warren said. “That starts with protecting our elections and democratic processes, and making it clear that there will be severe consequences for those – foreign or domestic – who meddle, hack, or undermine them.“
“It means ensuring a meaningful opportunity for every American citizen to vote. And it means fighting for equal justice and protection under the law for all.“
“It also requires us to speak out against hateful rhetoric that fuels domestic terrorism of all kinds, whether in San Bernadino or Charleston, Orlando or Charlottesville, Fort Hood or Pittsburgh. We must speak plainly about all of these incidents.“
“Just like the hateful terrorism of Al Qaeda and ISIS, domestic right-wing terrorism is completely incompatible with our American values.“
“Let’s start with a serious problem: Around the world, democracy is under assault. Authoritarian governments are gaining power.“
“Right-wing demagogues are gaining strength. Movements toward openness and pluralism have stalled and begun to reverse.“
“Inequality is rapidly growing, transforming rule by-the-people into rule by-wealthy-elites.“
