Saturday afternoon, Sen. Elizabeth Warren formally announced her campaign for president:

Rob Lowe imagined a Warren presidency — specifically her title — this way:
Elizabeth Warren would bring a whole new meaning to Commander in “Chief”.

Update: Lowe subsequently deleted his tweet, explaining, “It was a joke and some peeps got upset, and that’s never my intention.”
And with that, a great triggering ensued…
Look at all the #sjw heads exploding over this gentle ribbing of Senator Red Face.
Because nobody is allowed to laugh at anything ever.

Well, you get the idea.
Warren’s bogus ancestry claims don’t hold a candle for many to anybody who makes a joke about them, apparently:
It's amazing how many people to seem to think jokes about Elizabeth Warren pretending to be Native American are more offensive than Elizabeth Warren pretending to be Native American. https://t.co/GDuZ34pFq9

Rob Lowe here is trending on Twitter because people are so outraged over the fact that someone would dare point out Elizabeth Warren's claims of Native American ancestry, and use it as a funny pun. https://t.co/Xit5tLOtn0
