Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden are joining forces to raise money to attack President Trump – and the partnership could be more than just a fundraising operation.
Warren is angling for a VP slot and is rumored to be on Biden’s shortlist for the position.
Their mission: raise a lot of campaign cash.
Tickets for the virtual fundraiser – the first time the former vice president and the progressive champion from Massachusetts are joining forces to formally raise money – range from a low of $250 up to $100,000.
Warren’s presence at a fundraiser is puzzling, considering that she spent a good deal of time on the campaign trail and in debates railing against swanky fundraisers.
During her bid for the White House, Warren was critical of rivals who held top dollar fundraising events.
After Biden brought in $6.3 million on the day he announced his candidacy in April of last year — with part of the haul coming from a fundraiser at the home of a Comcast executive — Warren slammed him for attending a “swanky private fundraiser.”
Of course, like all Democratic populism, Warren’s wealth-bashing wasn’t sincere – it was just a talking point to gain support for her campaign. Now that that’s over, she’s doing the exact opposite in another desperate attempt at gaining power.
It’s a truly despicable example of what a politician should not be.
