As the 2020 election gets closer, President Donald Trump continues to improve in his standing.
But at the same time, his Democrat challengers continue to take major hits to their campaigns.
And Trump was grinning from ear to ear after his top 2020 opponent got career-ending news.
The current leading Democrat challenging Trump for President is Elizabeth Warren.
As a Senator, she has made a name for herself as a far-left figure.
She seems to be attempting to paint herself as a slightly less extreme Bernie Sanders.
Warren refuses to admit that she is a socialist, instead publicly declaring her support for capitalism.
But at a policy level, it is clear that she is just as socialist as Sanders.
Warren continues to climb in the polls with this message.
Lately, her campaign messaging has become loudly anti-billionaire.
At a recent speaking engagement in Nevada a moderator questioned her about the fact that billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson, who is the richest person in the state of Nevada, opposes her campaign and will likely spend a lot of money to support Trump.
Instead of giving a serious answer, she responded with a question.
“Are you telling me that billionaires aren’t in favor of my being president of the United States?” Warren rhetorically asked. “I’m shocked!”
Her insinuation is that billionaires hate her.
After all, she supports increasing their taxes massively, including by implementing a wealth tax on their overall net worth.
So she is painting her campaign as being one funded by small dollar donors, who are coming together to take on the billionaires.
She brought in $24.6 million in campaign donations in the most recent quarter using this claim.
But as it turns out, that money wasn’t all from average everyday people.
In fact, a report from the New York Post shows that Warren has brought in hefty donations from at least 30 billionaires over the course of her political career.
Considering there are only a few hundred billionaires in the United States as a whole, this is a very high number for somebody who paints themselves as the anti-billionaire.
If that was true, billionaires would seemingly be united against her campaign.
But if Warren has proven one thing, it’s that many of her campaign positions only seem to apply to those who aren’t on her side.
In fact, her most recent series of policy proposals implements some of the most extreme restrictions on political lobbying.
Her goal seems to be to put an end to lobbyists as a whole.
But shortly after announcing this, she hired a lobbyist for Planned Parenthood to run her campaign in the state of Florida.
So while she may publicly decry lobbyists, it is unlikely she does so in private, at least when she is talking about those who lobby Congress on issues that she agrees with.
And it could very well be the same for billionaires.
After all, she almost certainly doesn’t want to disappoint a group who have given sizable donations to her over the years.
Do you think Elizabeth Warren is a hypocrite?
