Elizabeth Warren has spent years modeling herself as a Bernie Sanders type candidate, demonizing the rich and stoking class warfare.
Now she is proving that it was all just an act.
She is planning to host a fundraising event for Joe Biden with plenty of high-roller rich donors.
The Daily Mail reports:
Elizabeth Warren to host high-dollar fundraiser for Joe Biden after vowing to avoid rich donors and blasting her Democratic rivals for ‘selling access’ and going to wine caves
Elizabeth Warren will host a high-dollar fundraiser with rich donors for Joe Biden, after vowing to avoid such events in her own presidential campaign and accusing her rivals of ‘selling access to their time for money.’
Warren, who is on the short-list to be Biden’s running mate, will host the fundraiser on June 15, The New York Times reported, citing three people with knowledge of the event.
Biden promised to pick a woman as his running mate. Warren is one of several he’s considering, including Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, California Senator Kamala Harris, Georgia politician Stacy Abrams, and Florida Congresswoman Val Demmings….
But her attacks on big donors and corporate money worried Wall Street and other high-dollar industries during the Democratic primary process. Holding a fundraiser with them would a way to start to alleviate those concerns.
It could, however, subject her to criticism after she attacked her Democratic rivals for courting rich donors at posh events, most memorably during the December 2019 primary debate, when she criticized Pete Buttigieg for attending a fundraiser in a wine cave.
Warren is getting absolutely roasted over this on Twitter:

I don't meet behind closed doors with big-dollar donors."@NYTimes, today: "Elizabeth Warren to Hold Big-Dollar Fund-Raiser for Biden" https://t.co/kOPxxyNJmM pic.twitter.com/iTGhG8OCby

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. All Warren cares about is winning.
