Hillary Clinton is the candidate of Wall Street. Period.
Elizabeth Warren was too cowardly to endorse a candidate during the 2016 Democratic primary but now that Hillary has safely crossed the finish line and Bernie’s revolution is fading in the rear view mirror, Warren is going all in for Clinton.
Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton proves she is a fraud.
This is not a matter of opinion, this is fact. Donald Trump may be a wealthy man but Hillary Clinton is the indisputable candidate of Wall Street in this election.
The fact that Warren would stand “with her” is proof that all of Warren’s anti-Wall Street rhetoric is nothing more than hot air which disappears in the face of partisanship.
Last night on MSNBC, Warren made an appearance on the Rachel Maddow show to announce her endorsement. Maddow asked her why she didn’t endorse anyone during the primary. This was her non-answer, via CNN:
“I thought that the primary was really important and it was an opportunity for Democrats to get out there and show this is what it means to be a Democrat,” Warren said when asked why she withheld her endorsement for Clinton or primary rival Bernie Sanders.
“What Bernie Sanders did was powerfully important. He ran a campaign from the heart…. He brought millions of people into the Democratic Party and for me, this is what it’s all about,” the Massachusetts senator added.
Here’s a quick clip of the actual endorsement:
At various points in the interview, Warren had the audacity to suggest that Trump (not Clinton) is the candidate of big money and special interests. Hillary Clinton has made millions speaking to big banks and Wall Street firms but apparently gets a pass from Warren who has spent years railing against such things.
The hypocrisy wasn’t lost on the Republican National Committee, which released this statement:
RNC Statement On Elizabeth Warren’s Endorsement Of Hillary Clinton
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Spokeswoman Lindsay Walters released the following statement on Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton:
“By endorsing Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren has shown herself to be a sellout. Whether it’s the Wall Street speech transcripts she refuses to release, her ties to the fossil fuel industry, or coziness with big banks, Hillary Clinton represents everything Elizabeth Warren supposedly stands against.”
The Democratic Party seems to have chosen a “whistling past the graveyard” approach to this situation and is ignoring palpable anger from their progressive base not only over Hillary’s nomination but also of Warren’s endorsement.
Bernie Sanders supporters have been extremely active on Reddit over the past year and a quick perusal of their official Sanders page shows they feel betrayed by Warren.
This thread includes the following comments:
“God, so weak.”
“Unliked her on FB and ‘unfollowed’ on Twitter. Not much but it felt good and if a significant number of us do it, it will at least send her a message.”
“Dead to me.”
This thread has more:
“She just now said that the reason she didn’t endorse anyone is because she felt the primary just “needed to go forward.” I don’t even understand what the hell that means. It’s a non-answer.”
“Now she’s talking about money in politics and lobbyists, while endorsing Hillary at the same time, I think she lost it completely.”
“Warren is a traitor.”
How Hillary can say this and get Warren’s endorsement boggles the mind:
“Our elections should be shaped by voters’ voices—not bought and sold by corporations & special interests” —Hillary: https://t.co/QUJomlql0N

Hillary Clinton is the candidate of big banks and Wall Street. Warren’s endorsement of her proves once and for all that she’s a fraud.
