Julián Castro Tries to Remain Relevant by Endorsing Elizabeth Warren

Julián Castro Tries to Remain Relevant by Endorsing Elizabeth Warren

He just won’t go away.

Former HUD secretary Julián Castro ended his presidential campaign a few days ago, but has shown no attempts to remain out of the limelight.

Castro announced this morning he endorses Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. He plans on campaigning for Warren starting this week in Brooklyn, NY.

Castro gained 15 minutes of fame at the 2012 Democratic National Convention and serving as HUD secretary under President Barack Obama.

It looks like the fame did not stick because Castro’s campaign never really took off. He rarely cracked 2% in any of the polls.

Some of the flames remained as he received praise from the progressive and far-left side of the Democratic Party. His socialist ideas and views jive with the likes of Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Warren praised Castro’s immigration plan last May and June, which includes decriminalizing border crossings:

“Oh, I think Julián Castro. His idea around immigration and about changing how we treat people who come here and who are not documented,” she said. “I think he’s got some really good ideas around this. I am very interested in his work. I admire it.”

She also name-dropped Castro a month later when she joined his call to decriminalize illegal border crossings.

“I agree with Secretary Castro,” Warren told HuffPost then. “We should not be criminalizing mamas and babies trying to flee violence at home or trying to build a better future. We must pass comprehensive immigration reform that is in line with our values, creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants including our DREAMers, and protects our borders.”

Castro’s motivation could be the vice president nod or a position in Warren’s administration if she should win the general election.

Many people thought failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would pick Castro as her running mate. She chose Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine instead.

I guess the Spanish-Cherokee translator was off-camera.

Maybe Julian can be Fauxcahontas’ cabana boy or luggage bearer. Lord knows that Lyin’Lizzie is carrying a LOT of baggage.

He’s repulsive.

We can see where his morals lie. Rather low.

That was in Granny Warren’s beer-filled kitchen. I wonder if she offered him one.

It’d be interesting to know how many takes his film crew have to do since Granny’s area of Cambridge is so ultra-lefty and so ultra-white that the appearance of an Hispanic probably burned up the phone wires with neighbors’ calls to the police station.

All in all, this just seems weird – a person of color endorsing a person who misrepresented herself as a person of color.

    His ad states, “Elizabeth and I share a vision of America where everyone counts”

    Ya mean, like in Everyone’s Life Matters?

    Have you guys clear all of this w/BlackLivesMatter?

Sorry, who?

Tries to Remain Relevant
Wouldn’t that require him to be relevant in the first place?

When the RCP average shows you at 0.3% How relevant are you?

Did little Fidel ask Warren about this?

Elizabeth Warren On Booming Economy: ‘I Just Don’t See It That Way’

Dem nomination is playing out like a season of Survivor.

Alliances, blindsides, challenges, oh my!

I seriously doubt that his tiny 1% slice of the Dem electorate will get him the VP spot on her ticket.

Such was his appeal among Hispanics he’d have to bribe his extended family to get their votes.

“He just won’t go away.” All the appeal and charm of a case of herpes but with none of the fun involved in catching it in the first place.

An America where people⁠—not the wealthy or well-connected⁠—are put first. I’m proud to join her in the fight for big, structural change. pic.twitter.com/xDvMEKqpF3

We need to make sure he donates all his leftover campaign cash to the homeless, poor and sick.
Hahahahahahaha. As if the dwarf would ever give up his own personal stash.
