Your Queen, Senator Elizabeth Warren has announced that she will seek the presidency in 2020 in a new video, explaining that she’s launched an “exploratory campaign,” the first step in a presidential bid. My nipples are hard.
In the video, Warren takes a look back at the life that led her to public service: how her mother’s minimum wage job kept the family afloat after her father’s debilitating heart attack. This hardworking foundation led Warren on the path to becoming a public school teacher, a law professor, a senator, and now possibly the president of the United States.
In the four-minute video, Warren outlined the tenants of her planned run: economic equality for the middle class and accountability for big corporations as well as the government itself.
"Corruption is poisoning our democracy," Warren said, as the video flashed through images of Trump and other Republican politicians. She said politicians like those “look the other way while big insurance companies deny patients life-saving coverage, while big banks rip off consumers and while big oil companies destroy this planet."
“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others, who work just as hard, slip through the cracks into disaster,” she said. “And what I’ve found is terrifying. These aren’t cracks families are falling into, they’re traps. America’s middle class is under attack.”
“But this dark path doesn’t have to be our future,” Warren continued. “We can make our democracy work for all of us. We can make our economy work for all of us.”
With the launch of an exploratory committee, Warren can now begin fundraising for an actual campaign. Other possible early frontrunners for the Democratic nomination include Vice President Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and political daddy Beto O'Rourke.
