PERSISTING NO MORE: Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren Drops Out of Presidential Race
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has dropped out of the Democrat presidential race following dismal performances in primary contests across the nation.
Warren did not receive higher than a third place finish in any of the primaries or caucuses as Democrats determine who will face President Trump in November. She even came in third in her home state of Massachusetts on Super Tuesday, which may have been the death blow for her fledgling campaign.
With Warren gone, the only candidates who remain are former Vice President Joe Biden, far-left Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI). It is essentially a two-man race, as Gabbard has only accumulated one delegate. The establishment support is rapidly coalescing around Biden, who has regained momentum after a stunning amount of flubs on the campaign trail seemingly doomed his campaign from the start.
At one point, Warren was considered a front-runner with a substantial chance at winning. She was even briefly atop the polls in November boosted by her strong debate performances. However, her momentum would soon wane, and she would resort to the most pathetic instances of pandering in an attempt to regain lost support.
“I have two qualifications that I talk about over and over for my Secretary of Education,” she said in January about her idea to have her Education Secretary vetted by a 9-year-old transgender boy.
She added: “The first: It has to be someone who’s taught in a public school, hello? And part 2, because it came from a young trans person who asked about a welcoming community and I said it starts with a Secretary of Education who has a lot to do with where we spend our money, with what gets advanced in our public schools, with what the standards are, and I said, ‘I’m going to have a Secretary of Education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf.’“
Warren also said in order to show her goal to “be committed to diversity and inclusion, starting on Day One,” she would assemble “a Cabinet and senior leadership team that reflects the full diversity of America” while serving as President. This would mean a hiring quota of at least 50 percent of Cabinet positions “filled by women and nonbinary people” in order to ensure “representation of LGBTQ+ people across all levels of government, including in leadership roles.”
She also posted this Tweet earlier this week, referring to “Latinx and Chicano history” in her latest diversity pander:
Yes, these are hard times. Yes, people are afraid. And the danger is real. Our very democracy hangs in the balance. But Latinx and Chicano history teaches us the power of fighting back. pic.twitter.com/wrIKGIPWI8

Unfortunately for Warren, all of the pandering did not pay off and only turned off voters from her campaign even more. She is expected to endorse either Biden or Sanders in the upcoming days, a no-win move that will inevitably anger many Democrats.
