Elizabeth Warren doesn’t seem to understand that by endorsing the favorite candidate of Wall Street, she has shredded her persona as a warrior against Wall Street.
We all knew she was a fraud for the whole Native American thing, but her endorsement of Hillary cements Warren’s fraud status.
Seth Mandel writes at the New York Post:
Endorsing Hillary is the just latest sign that Warren is a fraud
American politics may have no bigger fraud than Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren.
So I got a good chuckle from Politico’s Thursday story saying the Massachusetts Democratic senator had called Donald Trump, among other grade-school taunts, a fraud.
I don’t know whether Warren fancies herself the pot or the kettle in this one, but she’s definitely a hypocrite.
In fact, while she was preparing to call Trump a fraud, her advisers were leaking to every major press outlet they could find that she was finally going to endorse Hillary Clinton for president, now that she has secured the necessary delegates. What a profile in courage.
Endorsing Hillary could be the most fraudulent act of Warren’s brief political career, since Warren is a less compelling version of Bernie Sanders on economics and even once boasted she essentially “created” Occupy Wall Street.
But there’s stiff competition.
Start with that Fauxcahontas moniker. She earned it during her 2012 Senate campaign against Scott Brown after it came to light she’d claimed to be 1/32 Cherokee decades ago when seeking a Harvard Law faculty position.
She wasn’t able to back up the claim. “These are my family stories,” she said. As a wealthy white woman, her gaming of the affirmative-action system also made a mockery of race-based hiring and the left’s supposed commitment to “diversity.”
And wait — how did she become wealthy, anyway? Well, partly through flipping houses. Like the one owned by Mary Frances Hickman back in Warren’s native Oklahoma. In 1993, Warren convinced the elderly widow to sell her the home for a paltry $30,000, National Review reported. Five months later, Warren resold it for $145,000.

Fraud Alert: Elizabeth Warren’s Endorsement of Hillary
Elizabeth Warren was too cowardly to endorse a candidate during the 2016 Democratic primary but now that Hillary has safely crossed the finish line and Bernie’s revolution is fading in the rear view mirror, Warren is going all in for Clinton.
Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton proves she is a fraud.
This is not a matter of opinion, this is fact. Donald Trump may be a wealthy man but Hillary Clinton is the indisputable candidate of Wall Street in this election.
The fact that Warren would stand “with her” is proof that all of Warren’s anti-Wall Street rhetoric is nothing more than hot air which disappears in the face of partisanship…
Bernie Sanders supporters have been extremely active on Reddit over the past year and a quick perusal of their official Sanders page shows they feel betrayed by Warren.
This thread includes the following comments:
“God, so weak.”
“Unliked her on FB and ‘unfollowed’ on Twitter. Not much but it felt good and if a significant number of us do it, it will at least send her a message.”
“Dead to me.”
This thread has more:
“She just now said that the reason she didn’t endorse anyone is because she felt the primary just “needed to go forward.” I don’t even understand what the hell that means. It’s a non-answer.”
“Now she’s talking about money in politics and lobbyists, while endorsing Hillary at the same time, I think she lost it completely.”
“Warren is a traitor.”
It’s looking increasingly possible that Warren could be chosen as Hillary’s VP.
Let it happen. The Democrats vastly overestimate her national appeal.
