Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 campaign is cratering, and for good reasons.
She is simply not authentic. Almost everything she claims to be ends up not being true. For years, she claimed to be Native American and that was a lie. She claims to be a champion of the working class and rials against wealthy people while ignoring her own massive wealth.
She recently attacked Pete Buttigieg for holding fancy fundraisers with wealthy donors and expensive wine.
Now we know she did that too.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Elizabeth Warren wooed donors at top Manhattan restaurant boasting $6,600 wines
Elizabeth Warren recently made headlines jabbing 2020 Democratic rival Pete Buttigieg over his Napa Valley “wine cave” fundraiser. But the Massachusetts senator’s own campaign fundraisers have sometimes taken place at a restaurant boasting bottles that cost more than $6,500.
Federal Election Commission records show Warren’s political action committee, PAC for a Level Playing Field, and her Senate joint fundraising committee enjoyed at least four events at New York City’s Gramercy Tavern, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Manhattan co-owned by celebrity chef Danny Meyer.
Both of the Warren-affiliated organizations paid thousands of dollars to the restaurant for reception and catering expenses between December 2014 and October 2017.
A dinner at the restaurant’s main dining room runs $134 for a three-course tasting menu — and that’s before the wine. While customers can find wines such as the Chilean white La Ruptura at $48, Gramercy Tavern’s 34-page wine list also offers bottles of Burgundies costing $6,600, such as Domaine Coche-Dury’s 2013 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru.
The Warren campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
She even did an event with Bank of America at one point:
A lot of people are starting to call Elizabeth Warren a hypocrite and Hillary Clinton 2.0
But Warren wouldn't be also dumb enough to speak at an event sponsored by a big bank before running for president would she??

She’s a women of the working people. As most voters say, if the lender of your $1.3 million line of credit that’s secured by your Cambridge home asks you to speak, you speak. (From 2015) pic.twitter.com/7FmqZgRT3a

None of this is going to help her with the voters she needs.
