As you know, Elizabeth Warren announced that she’s exploring a run for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2020, and it started predictably enough with a campaign video that included a swipe at Fox News:
Every person in America should be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules, & take care of themselves & the people they love. That’s what I’m fighting for, & that’s why I’m launching an exploratory committee for president. I need you with me: https://t.co/BNl2I1m8OX pic.twitter.com/uXXtp94EvY

But Warren later outdid herself on the forced “relatable” stunts with a live video featuring her awkwardly trying to enjoy a beer just like many other adult humans in the country:
Can you handle the CRINGE???
Here's Fake Native American Elizabeth Warren pretending to be 'one of us' by robotically drinking a beer.
My Question for you is: Who's more Robotic .. Hillary Clinton or Warren?
Also, where's the POW WOW CHOW in this video ?? ???? #Warren2020 pic.twitter.com/PzYFDnUDUp

That instant classic earned Warren a comparison to another Democrat presidential nominee, and maybe not one she’ll be happy with. Has there already been a “Dukakis moment” for Warren?

I’ve been around a lot of beer and beer drinkers in my life and I’ve never, ever heard someone declare, “Hold on a second — I'm gonna get me a beer.”.

A “Dukakis moment”? Yikes!
And up next for the Massachusetts senator, an attempt to relate to the folks in flyover country:
Elizabeth Warren will travel to Iowa this weekend, holding events in: Council Bluffs, Sioux City, Storm Lake, Des Moines.

Can a Hillary-esque “I’m just chillin’ in Cedar Rapids” moment be far behind?
