Elizabeth Warren is a prog hero. She's not especially popular back in her own state. And it's not hard to see why. She keeps trying to be a national figure. That means constant publicity stunts for the left. All the while ignoring the hometown press. But now that she has to consider how to actually get reelected, she has decided to actually start paying attention to the local press.
Elizabeth Warren’s creative media-dodging habits are a running joke among her home-state press corps. Whenever the senator makes a public appearance, Massachusetts reporters know to keep one eye fixed on the exit doors.
But that might be changing.
In just the last week alone, the notoriously press-averse progressive icon held three open-to-media events back home, followed by lengthy huddles with reporters on a wide range of issues ranging from her Senate votes to Donald Trump’s wiretapping accusations to the 2020 race.
In Boston and Washington, where Warren is known for being as stingy with the media on Capitol Hill as back home, the sudden thaw has political operatives questioning what’s behind the change of heart.
In addition to standard refusals to answer questions, the senator has bolted out side doors to avoid interviews and gone to great lengths to avoid questions such as who did she vote for in the Democratic presidential primary.
But it's the Republican efforts to shut out the press that are truly worrisome. #ShePersisted.
Warren is an unlikable cold fish. That's why she's a prog hero. Aside from her greed and her hatred for anyone who, unlike her, actually works for a living, she has no appeal. It's no wonder she tries to avoid the press.
