Elizabeth Warren Barely Tries to Squash Rumors of a 2020 Presidential Bid

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has been called "Pocahontas" by President Donald Trump, but that's not almost as bad as her favorite curse word - 'poop'.

Conservatives are reading Warren's new book as "a soft launch of her 2020 presidential run", as Colin Reed, the executive director of the super PAC America Rising, put it in a memo to reporters.

Warren's book tour has inevitably stoked speculation that she is considering a presidential bid in 2020. She later used the same phrase in an NPR interview while promoting her new book.

Elizabeth Warren has called Donald Trump a host of unflattering words, from "weak", to "reckless", to "embarrassing".

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) this week tweeted out a photo of herself standing next to the Fearless Girl statue in NY with the caption, "Fight like a girl".

As a protest against the nomination of then-Senator Jeff Sessions to serve as attorney general, she read aloud a passage from a 1986 letter written by Coretta Scott King to complain about Sessions' nomination for a federal judgeship. "In 2018 for senator for MA".

Now Warren is upping her profile even more.

Are you planning to read Elizabeth Warren's newest book and do you think it is part of an early campaign to run for president in the 2020 USA presidential election? "And that's what I'll keep on doing".

By contrast, 21 percent of voters who said they had negative opinions of the former Harvard professor offered that they saw her as "very unfavorable", compared to 11 percent who reported just "unfavorable" views. "My life's work is about what is happening to working families across this country".

Fallon tried to turn the serious story into a bit, addressing the camera as if it were McConnell and telling him to "be civil" and "say hi to Elizabeth Warren".
