In an interview promoting her new book, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) criticized former President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party, telling The Guardian, “The Republicans have clearly thrown their lot in with the rich and the powerful, but so have a lot of Democrats.”
Warren said that Obama suffers from a lack of awareness about the “lived experiences” of most Americans. He “talks about a set of big national statistics that look shiny and great but increasingly have giant blind spots,” Warren explained.
On Tuesday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” Doc Thompson talked about Warren’s comments and other signs that she is planning a 2020 presidential run. By criticizing her fellow Democrats, Warren is signaling that “she is above party politics. She is in it for the people, the average working guy and gal out there,” Doc explained.
Doc predicted that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won’t run again, instead being an influential figure behind the scenes, and that Warren will take on his message. You’ll know for sure if Warren is running if she makes a trip to Iowa, the bellwether state in the presidential primary, sometime in the next six months.
“That’s gonna be the tip-off,” Doc said.
