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.

WEAK: Bernie Sanders Allows Nevada Rally to be Overrun by Deranged Anti-Dairy Activists
And this guy wants to be President?
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the presumptive front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, demonstrated his weakness in allowing his rally on Sunday in Carson City, Nevada to be overrun by deranged anti-dairy activists.
“Bernie, I’m your biggest supporter, and I am here to ask you to stop propping up the dairy industry, and stop propping up the dairy industry,” an activist said after she wrestled the mic away from the frail 78-year-old socialist with a bad ticker.

After the microphone was cut off and security attempted to remove the activist from stage, three other anti-dairy activists showed up topless to protest Sanders’ supposed pro-agriculture beliefs as well.
The group behind this protest calls themselves Direct Action Everywhere, and they have identified the protester who grabbed the microphone from Sanders as Priya Sawhney, who lists herself as the co-founder of the organization.
“I love Bernie, but we must hold abusive industries accountable, not shield and subsidize them. Animal farming is an industry which gives welfare payments to millionaires,” Sawhney said in a statement included in a press release from the organization. “People are fed up. Like the Sanders campaign itself, animal rights is a burgeoning mass movement.”
This is not the first time that Sanders has allowed angry, unruly activists to take over his rallies. He did so in 2015 when he allowed Black Lives Matter to rush the stage and actually handed the microphone over to those belligerent racial-grievance mongers.
The Hill reported on Sanders’ weakness during his first presidential campaign:
Protesters who claimed affiliation with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the stage during a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Seattle on Saturday, taking over the microphone and forcing Sanders to leave without ever speaking.
Moments after Sanders took the stage at Westlake Park, two women and one man climbed the stage and confronted the Democratic presidential candidate, demanding a chance to speak.
After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders. Some in the crowd booed.
One protester, who identified herself as Marissa Johnson, began by saying, “I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is — with all of its progressives — but you’ve already done that for me. Thank you.”
Johnson spoke, among other things, about police violence in Seattle, mentioning a federal investigation into the city’s law enforcement that resulted in the appointment of a monitor to make sure Seattle police were complying with the terms set forth by the Justice Department.
“Bernie says that he’s all about the people and about grassroots. The biggest grassroots movement in this country right now is Black Lives Matter,” she added.
If Sanders somehow becomes President, he will likely be kicked around by world leaders in the same manner that he is kicked around by left-wing activists.
