Elizabeth Warren’s rise in the polls resulted in NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” devoting the cold open sketch the Massachusetts senator.
The show imagined Warren answering questions at a town hall in Iowa.
SNL’s Warren was energetic, confident, and even crass.
One young woman in the audience asked about Medicare for All, and how she was nervous about giving up her health insurance.
“Your insurance is like a bad boyfriend. Girl, listen to me. You need to leave him. He’s draining you. You deserve better. Dump his ass,” Warren said.
“I know you’re right,” the woman replied in tears. “I’m settling, but I’m just scared to leave, because what if it’s the best I can get?”
“Girlfriend, how much is your deductible?”
“$8,000. I don’t even have dental,” she replied. “My teeth hurt so bad.”
“All right. Listen to me, you beautiful b*tch, you’re going to call him. You’re going to end it,” Warren commanded. “And then one day, Blue Cross, Blue Shield’s going to text you from the club saying, ‘Baby, I miss you.’ And you’re going to say, ‘New phone, who dis?’ Okay, girlfriend, you’re going to be just fine.”
People who want to ban fracking immediately, says Joe Biden, ‘oughta vote for someone else’
"Might I recommend Bernie Sanders: the climate candidate," responds Vermont senator's press secretary.
If you want a candidate committed to banning fracking in the United States immediately, find another candidate than Joe Biden.
That's the advice of Biden himself, given to an activist from the Sunrise Movement in a video posted online Thursday after the two discussed the former vice president's adviser Heather Zichal and Biden's plans for the future of fracking.
‘You’re a damn liar’: Joe Biden goes off on Iowa voter for attacking his son’s work in Ukraine
As House Democrats move closer to indicting President Donald Trump on articles of impeachment, many Trump supporters continue to insist that Trump did nothing wrong when, on July 25, he tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Moreover, some impeachment critics still claim that an investigation of the Bidens’ activities in Ukraine is warranted. The Bidens’ connection to Ukraine was brought up this week by a man at a Joe Biden campaign event in Iowa — and the former vice president and U.S. senator from Delaware wasted no time calling him out.
‘A president the world is laughing at’: Biden releases new ad attacking Trump — and it’s getting widely praised
Former Vice President Joe Biden, still the Democratic frontrunner, Wednesday night released an ad that has many people talking – it's already been viewed 5.4 million times – and it's getting praise from even non-Biden supporters.
The ad uses footage from the viral video of world leaders at NATO mocking President Donald Trump – a video that upset the American president so greatly he left London early, canceling a press conference and bilateral meeting, to head back to D.C.
