Elizabeth Warren has taken to describing her father as a janitor in an attempt to appear relatable to the working class. But according to the Massachusetts senator and presidential candidate’s brother, the claim is yet another of Warren’s self-serving exaggerations, and he isn’t happy about it.

A source close to one of Warren’s brothers, David Herring, has described the Oklahoma resident and Army veteran as “furious” over Warren’s account of their father, Donald Herring, working as a janitor. Warren has spoken on the campaign trail of an account in which her father lost a job as a salesman after a heart attack, and worked as a janitor in order to make ends meet for his family.

Herring has described his father as more of a maintenance worker than a janitor, being quoted as stating his father never worked as the latter.

Not that there’s anything wrong with being a janitor, of course. Having a father in the janitorial profession would lend strong working-class credibility to the Ivy League-educated lawyer.

But Warren shouldn’t claim her father was one in a deceptive attempt to booster her working class appeal when it appears he was more of a handyman. One might say those positions are synonymous, but the difference appears to be great enough in the case of Warren’s father that her brother has taken offense to her claim.

It appears from limited profiles of Warren’s brothers that they may actually trend conservative, and they aren’t a prominent presence in Warren’s campaign. The Massachusetts senator previously surged to a strong third place in Democratic primary polling, before falling back behind Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

It seems more exaggerated tales of her family history aren’t going to launch her back into serious contention for the nomination.

LISTEN: Mike Bloomberg Joked About Droning His Political Opponents in Leaked Audio

Bloomberg was speaking at an exclusive Goldman Sachs crowd of political elites.

Published

Michael Bloomberg joked about using Predator drones to dispatch his political opponents at a Goldman Sachs event in 2016, stating that they’d be used on a “list of everybody that’s annoyed me or screwed me for the last 74 years.

Listen to the tasteless and vengeful remarks from the authoritarian billionaire here:

Bloomberg was speaking at a Goldman Sachs event held at New York’s Yankee Stadium. Audio of his remarks was leaked to the public by a former Goldman Sachs employee disenchanted with the controversial financial institution.

A Bloomberg spokesperson admitted that the drone remarks were “inappropriate” in a statement on the audio to CNN.

During his remarks at the Goldman Sachs-sponsored event, Bloomberg declared his loyalty to major banking and Wall Streets financial institutions. He said that his hypothetical presidential campaign would seek to “defend the banks,” and that Goldman Sachs’ Wall Street elites were “my peeps.”

Bloomberg had been considering an independent bid for the presidency in 2016, and appears to have been promoting the idea to powerful Wall Street donors in his Yankee Stadium remarks. That campaign didn’t happen, with the former New York City mayor falling in line with Hillary Clinton. Now, as socialist Senator Bernie Sanders appears favorably positioned to win the Democratic nomination for President, Bloomberg has unshelved the plan, with a goal of maintaining the establishment order of the Democratic Party.

The remarks are the latest in a string of questionable old quotes the ultrabillionaire former Mayor has been lambasted for. Bloomberg has called a father and son who died of heroin overdoses a “bad family” during a conversation about the opioid epidemic, and referred to farmers and machinists as simpletons.
