Hypocrisy is just part of being a Democrat, pretending they’re something they’re not is what most of them base their political careers upon. Elizabeth Warren has proven over the years to be among the most blatant and offensive of all Democrat hypocrites, particularly adept at exploiting every opportunity to pander at a moment’s notice. She might have thought this interview was one of those opportunities. It wasn’t.
Warren was ambushed with a question she couldn’t answer about the inconsistencies of her having considerable wealth as she makes her career railing against others who are like her. She chooses to attempt to draw a distinction of how much money she was born into as somehow being significant as to the legitimacy of her inclusion in the top one percent.
WRKO radio host Jeff Kuhner asked the Massachusetts liberal, “You often say, and I agree with you, that the 99 percent are getting shafted by the 1 percent, let me ask you this. A lot of people, especially my listeners, say you live in Cambridge. You have a $2 million mansion, plus you’re a multi-millionaire yourself. So how can you rail against the 1 percent, when you are and live like the 1 percent?”
Her desperate, flailing response only further illustrated Kuhner’s point. She said, “I wasn’t born in Cambridge, I was born into a family where my daddy worked one job after another and ended up as a janitor.”
She droned on about how much the colleges she attended cost per year, and the difficulty of finding her road to riches. Kuhner was not distracted from his original question by her efforts, reiterating, “But you are part of the 1 percent. You are a multi-millionaire and have a mansion in Cambridge, do you not? It’s worth north of $2 million.”
The defensive, feigned outrage begins to appear as does the impulse to run for the hills. Warren says, “I had opportunities because America invested in kids like me. And that’s the reason I’m in public office, so I can make sure the next kid …” — “Yeah, I know,” Kuhner interrupted, “but you are part of the 1 percent and you’re railing on the 1 percent. You don’t see the hypocrisy there?”
As her handler suddenly remembered she had somewhere else she needed to be, she offered a final argument, stating, “This is whether you believe in opportunity or not, and I believe in opportunity.”
Kuhner responded, “You mean the $350,000 for one course?” as she ran for the exit. “Is that what you mean by opportunity, senator?” Warren collected a tidy $350K as an American Indian faculty member at Harvard despite not being an Indian. There’s big money in being a crooked politician. Enough to get you into the top one percent.
