Elizabeth Warren made her official announcement on Saturday that she intends to run for president in 2020. As she was speaking, two people in the crowd right behind her got up and walked away. And this all happened on live TV.

Elizabeth Warren supporters walk out of her launch speech on live TV
Supporters present at Elizabeth Warren’s official announcement for her bid for president walked out during her speech.
Warren held a rally at an outdoor venue in Lawrence, Mass., where she announced that she is officially seeking the Democratic nomination to run against President Trump in 2020.
About 30 minutes before the conclusion of her speech, attendees standing behind her could be seen leaving the event.
Warren teased that she would be making her announcement at 11 a.m. on Saturday, but she did not take stage until around an hour after the scheduled slot, during which time attendees stood outside in freezing temperatures.
The high temperature in Lawrence Saturday was 32 degrees.

That’s pretty embarrassing for Warren. It’s a good thing she has the media on her side for now. Of course, they’ll turn on her the minute it becomes clear she can’t win.
