One thing I’ve noticed about the political world these last few years is that people are quick to spell out Trump’s inner thoughts, motivations, intentions, etc., far outside of anything he’s ever actually said.
In my opinion, the engagement of this is absolutely insane — if you don’t know the man, why would you think you know such things?
I certainly don’t want to do the same here.
Speaking of Trump, one thing I appreciate is that he’s unashamedly rich. To me, one of the stupidest things in politics is millionaires acting like they’re no such things. For a real medal-winner, see 1000% baloney Beto here (family net worth: HALF A BILLION).
For my money, it just doesn’t get any dumber or more insulting to the intelligence of the voters.
If you’re listening to a congressman or congresswoman who’s been in office for years, you’re listening to a millionaire.
The best part of this video is that after Elizabeth Warren realizes she's been caught on camera exiting a private jet.

So here’s the situation:
Elizabeth Warren touched down at the airport in Iowa Monday and exited her private jet.
And the way it looks in a social media video — hilariously — is that she spotted a camera and tried to hide behind a staffer.
I guess it’s not good for the image, as she’s raging against hersel– I mean, the rich on the campaign trail. That would be, those rich people, one of whom she certainly is not (net worth: $12 million).
As for my own take on the video, at first, I question whether she’s avoiding being seen; maybe she’s just walking normally behind someone. But as it goes on and she gets closer to the camera, she seems to be drifting unnaturally to her left to stay perfectly behind the person’s head. So much so, I caught myself laughing out loud.
If I had to bet, I’d definitely put it all on Hiding.
But maybe I’d lose?
She’s certainly got good reason to keep her jet-setting on the down low; just ask The Daily Wire:
In October, Warren was asked at a climate event in New Hampshire, “What specific steps have you taken in your campaign to ensure that your campaign’s environmental impact is as limited as possible?”
Warren responded by telling host Laura Knoy: “So, I’ve mostly been flying commercial, um, but we’ve been trying to look at other ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint and it’s everything from the kind of car we drive, uh and down to…do we purchase offsets, can we make that work as a way to try to reduce the footprint.”
Politics is rife with hypocrisy. The people who want us to dig in for the good of the country live lifestyles most Americans can hardly fathom. And as for pollution, they fly constantly, whereas the average person flies almost never. And never on a private plane.
All of that is…what’s that word? Oh, yeah: Goofy.
I look forward to hearing from you — give me your best Howard Cosell for the clip above. Whatcha think?
She seems to have transitioned from one famous character to another: from Pocahontas to Little Head Hiding Good.
