Elizabeth thought she was ready for anything – well not this one!
Elizabeth Warren has caught up to Biden in recent Democratic polls – but she’s already in hot water.
At a rally yesterday a particularly brave reporter set her up with a “trick question,” if you will.
She wanted to know whether Warren would allow her imaginary future VP’s kids to serve on the board of foreign companies.
(Hint Hint: Obama let Biden’s son do this)
Well, Warren fired back a quick response, and then realized she’d fallen into the reporter’s trap.
After that, it was like a deer caught in the headlights … and it proved she’d be no match for Trump!
From Washington Examiner:
The senator must have realized suddenly that her response was an implicit shot at the 2020 Democratic front-runner and his son, Hunter Biden, because she then started to backtrack, panicking and promising to look into the matter or something.
‘I don’t — I don’t know. I mean, I’d have to go back and look at the details on the plan,’ Warren said.
FLAG: Senator Elizabeth Warren appears uncharacteristically flustered when asked if her ethics plan would allow her Vice President's son to serve on the board of a foreign company: "No," she said.

Real smooth, Liz.
I guess it’s against the rules to call out any fellow Democrats, like Obama and Biden. I guess Warren thinks ethics don’t apply to her colleagues.
And really, it just got worse after that. She couldn’t give a straight answer!
‘I — I have to go back and look,’ the senator again dodged.
Yeah, go ahead and look, Warren.
Her ethics proposal is clear: she wants to ban “the practice of private lobbying for foreign governments, foreign individuals, and foreign companies.”
Getting the Vice President’s son into a high-ranking position in a foreign company? Yeah, that counts.
And in that case, couldn’t we argue that both Biden and Obama were guilty of an obvious ethics violation. Perhaps.
But Warren doesn’t even have the nerve to say it. Even after saying she condemns it in her OWN proposal!
I suppose this proves that Democrats are more interested in protecting each other, and a lot less interested in ethics and laws.
SHARE if you think we need to keep Warren OUT of the White House!
