Gillibrand Epically Owns Herself Before CNN Town Hall

The Senator from New York was hitting softballs in preparation for her CNN appearance.

A U.S. Senator and 2020 presidential candidate accidentally owned herself on Twitter before her Tuesday night CNN town hall.

“Getting ready for tonight’s CNN town hall!” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday afternoon.

She attached a video of herself hitting softballs, which created quite the stir, given that CNN is known for tossing softball questions to Democratic Party candidates during such events.

“A softball analogy. Perfect,” one user said.

“So they’re going to lob softballs at you? what’s there to prepare for?” said another.

The town hall went as planned for both the Senator and her Twitter critics, with not-so-hard-hitting questions like “What’s your favorite movie and why?” and “Name one thing that makes you different than all the other 2020 Democratic candidates.”

To the latter, Gillibrand said:

Well I have a very different story and I come from a rural part of a state as diverse as New York. I won a 2 to 1 Republican district twice and then I brought my whole state together with the highest vote total at 72% and bring people together in Congress all the time. I actually pass a lot of legislation big bills like 9/11 health bill and “Don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal and small bills like the 18 bills that passed in the last Congress, like more money for rural broadband or more money for manufacturing.

The renowned conspiracy theory channel has held several town halls for Democratic Party candidates, including former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

It will continue with several such events in the upcoming months.

SLEEPY: Joe Biden Campaign Team Pulls Joe from Daily Activities at 8:35AM, Months Before Election

High energy!

Published

Joe Biden’s press relations teams announced a “lid” to the traveling press pool at 8:34 EST on Saturday, surprising some observers with the announcement that the Democratic candidate would not make any public appearances on a Saturday merely seven weeks before the November presidential election.

Biden is taking it easy for the day at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.

After facing skepticism for the decision from some of the traveling press, a Biden campaign operative made it seem as if the off-day was some sort of calculated plan.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is holding a packed rally in North Carolina, preceded by White House meetings and pressers with reporters.

Biden has surprised even friendly corporate media reporters covering his campaign with his amount of ‘off-days,’ consistently declining to actively campaign for the Presidency as the nation approaches the election.

The former Vice President appeared later than he usually does in public Friday night, reading from a prepared statement mourning the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Perhaps the “late night” (it was only about 9PM local time) appearance in public derailed Biden’s plans for possible campaign stops the next day. It’s relatively unprecedented for a major party presidential candidate to simply decline to campaign seven weeks before an election in the modern era of campaigns and elections.

Biden doesn’t even really have the energy to campaign. How is he going to govern as President?
