Hillary Jumps Into The 2020 Debate About Elizabeth Warren
With the 2020 Democratic presidential primary season already shaping up, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren has thrown her feathered headdress into the ring, despite rumblings that she may suffer from a “likeability” problem. Now, failed candidate Hillary Clinton is wading into the Warren 2020 controversy, perhaps signaling that she has a favorite in the race.
Warren has reportedly already sought advice from Clinton, who suffered from her own issue with “likeability” — and now Clinton has emerged to publicly defend her progressive leftist ally, albeit without naming her.

Now, that really takes me back … Today, I want to thank all of you for your persistence. I know many of you and can attest as to how smart, determined, effective, and dare I say, likable, you all are.”
