Everything about Elizabeth Warren is contrived. Nothing happens by accident, everything she does is passed by consultants and members of her inner circle and it’s so obvious. Last night she made a live appearance on Instagram from her kitchen and drank a beer. Wow! She’s just like regular people!
Legal Insurrection reports:
Elizabeth Warren’s “Dukakis Tank” moment
Warren is surrounded by a team of consultants who have carefully managed her campaign rollout, and in the process have damaged her severely.
The release of her DNA test results right before the midterms is almost uniformly seen as a public relations disaster, from which she still is trying to recover. Rather than confirm the validity of her claim when she was climbing the law professor ladder to Harvard to be Native American, it turned her into a laughingstock.
Then Warren announced her candidacy on New Year’s Eve day. What were her handlers thinking? The timing could not have been worse. Perhaps they thought that in a slow news cycle her announcement would dominate the headlines in a good way. Instead, with little else going on, it gave even left-leaning media the opportunity to express doubts about her. And that slow news cycle ended up being dominated by Trump announcing on television that only Warren’s psychiatrist knows whether Warren actually believes she can win.
All those mistakes are dwarfed by what Warren did on New Year’s Eve. She went on Instagram live to drink beer in her kitchen. Seriously.
