‘I approve this message’: Elizabeth Warren trolls ‘Mad Money’s’ Jim Cramer for saying Wall Street is scared of her

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNBC’s Jim Cramer, the host of “Mad Money,” said that Wall Street executives are terrified of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — and are saying that “she’s got to be stopped” in her bid for the White House:

But this information did not faze Warren at all. In fact, she gleefully posted the segment to her own timeline — and joked that it might as well be a campaign-approved commercial for her candidacy:

Warren, who cut her teeth as a banking regulator, is running for president on a broad encyclopedia of economic reforms, many of them designed to reduce income inequality, curtail corporate power, and expand rights for workers.

How Trump’s presidency could cost Susan Collins reelection: The Maine GOP senator is ‘in a terrible position’

In the past, getting reelected was never a problem for Sen. Susan Collins. The Maine Republican, who was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1996, was reelected by 17% in 2002, 23% in 2008 and 37% in 2014. But that was before the incredibly divisive presidency of Donald Trump. And journalist David Sharp, in a report for the Associated Press (AP), stresses that Trump could be the “biggest hurdle” in Collins’ battle to win a fifth term.

In the past, Collins — who is conservative but not far-right — was quite popular in Maine, a blue state. But distancing herself from Trump’s controversies and far-right agenda has proven difficult for Collins. And Sharp notes that thanks to the impeachment inquiry Trump is facing, Collins might be forced to take a stand on whether or not he should remain in the White House: if Trump is impeached in the U.S. House of Representatives, the 66-year-old senator would later be asked to vote “guilty” or “not guilty” on articles of impeachment in a Senate trial.

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (photo), a Republican representing a large portion of upstate New York north of Albany, had a few tricks up her sleeve. It turns out her stunts didn't impress her opponent's supporters.

Tedra Cobb, a Democrat and former county legislator who is running to unseat Stefanik in just three days took in $1 million as a result of Rep. Stefanik's antics, stunts, and false claims.
