Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren is impressively articulate for someone with a forked tongue.
Like, this no doubt sounds brilliant to her supporters despite the fact that it’s absolute garbage and she knows it:
Last time I read the Constitution, it's majority rule in both chambers of Congress. And it’s only the president of the United States who gets a veto—not the minority leader of the United States Senate. #EndTheFilibuster

Oh? She’s familiar with the Constitution?
Did you? Read the Constitution? https://t.co/GDrT42CSRm

She's never read the Constitution. https://t.co/3MKZBYfkgv

Say you haven’t read the constitution without saying you haven’t read the constitution https://t.co/ikVbnJsW3l

We certainly can’t blame you for doubting her. She seems to have missed some pretty important stuff in there.

The constitution literally doesn’t say this https://t.co/BgbMqfldfF

Ackshually, Liz, the Constitution says you’re wrong and/or lying.
Read it again, especially the part that authorizes each House to set its own rules. https://t.co/hzvPSKjQs0

Where does it say majority rule in both chambers?
Article 1, Section 5: Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings.
99 and 1023/1024% a liar, I say. https://t.co/SM0NXGJGAs

Maybe give it another read.
“Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings”
– Article I, Section 5, Clause 2 https://t.co/dQyX3kOph9

You did not read it.
The only time the Constitution requires a majority of the Senate is to establish a quorum.
It specifically states “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings.”
Read your employee manual.

And while she’s at it, she can read a basic math book. Like, if you’re going to claim you have a majority, you should probably know what a majority is.
Last time I checked math, a 50-50 split means there’s the same number on both sides. https://t.co/eIkN7Vxdw8

And then, if she’s still got time, she can read her own record on the filibuster.

Then why did you participate in 300+ filibusters over the past five years? https://t.co/2LC78Anpsv

So the reason you’ve participated in filibusters in the past, including last year, is because…? https://t.co/cSQacVWblR
— HouseRepEEE (D) (@EEElverhoy) June 30, 2021
… is because she’s a power-hungry hypocrite.

She’s counting on her base to be too stupid to see through her. And that may be one calculation she actually gets right:

Yep. Absolutely correct.

If the QOP had won even one of the Senate races in Georgia, the filibuster would be dead. They would be passing bills right and left to tie up the House with votes on meaningless legislation. mitch mcconnell is that devious and doesn't care about rules. #GettoWorkDems https://t.co/WpqIcrjEBf

I have a problem with people who take the Constitution loosely and the Bible literally. The republicans are destroying the Constitutional process including the Constitution Oversite Process. American people must unite and force Congress to Unite. https://t.co/Vz5nRHb2F1

Only in America or maybe Russia this could happen! Where majority means nothing! The Dems need to do what ever it takes to benefit America as a whole!! https://t.co/GveObOILpe

Well, there’s a sucker born every minute. And Elizabeth Warren is grateful for every single one.
Elizabeth Warren couldn't be more disingenuous or less indigenous. https://t.co/Gp85JDj6yK
