Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts isn’t known for being original, unless you count her unfounded and discredited claim that she had Native American heritage.
That’s why nobody monitoring 2020 Democratic presidential candidates should be dumbfounded Warren has climbed aboard the increasingly crowded “President Donald Trump is racist” bandwagon comprising Democrats, celebrities and media leftists.
Warren told The New York Times on Wednesday that Trump is a white supremacist, as The Times’ Thomas Kaplan tweeted.
Asked if she thought Trump was a white supremacist, Elizabeth Warren did not hesitate: “Yes.”
“He has given aid and comfort to white supremacists,” she said.https://t.co/GPl7fHNEGG

She added that the president “has given aid and comfort to white supremacists.”
At this pathetic point, who can blame any of the 2020 hopefuls for reiterating the same leftist talking point that registers with their flock of supporters?
Democratic politicians feel pressure to appeal to their base, irrespective of the truth.
By the same token, why should registered voters be expected to believe Warren anymore? Since she was dishonest about the composition of her own blood, on which planet should we expect truths to emanate from her mouth?
The senator might not believe in honesty being the best policy, but she and Trump have one area of common ground: social media.
Just take an intrepid stroll through Warren’s Twitter account and you’ll notice that — not unlike many of her fellow Democrats — she spends more time boasting and documenting her life via tweets than doing the job for which she was elected.
Anyone who thinks Trump tweets too often (millions share that mindset) ought to feel the same way about Warren’s online activities.
The Massachusetts senator is yet another in the noisy parade of Democratic 2020 challengers to call out the president as hating non-whites, despite evidence to the contrary.
Warren sees blood in 2020’s murky waters. In turn, staunch supporters view her as an energetic and tenacious opportunist.
No argument here.
What the woman isn’t is truthful and trustworthy. Her campaign is built on a foundation of deceit within the political landscape.
