Elizabeth Warren is coming for Silicon Valley. The New York Times reported Friday that Warren will offer a regulatory proposal to break up the American tech giants, including Amazon, Google, and Facebook.

Warren’s plan, per the Times, will call for new regulators who would oversee the unwinding of recent mergers and corporate takeovers—think Amazon buying Whole Foods or Facebook buying...

Elizabeth Warren Is Going on the Offensive for Abortion Rights

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren put up a detailed policy proposal on Medium before any of us woke up this morning. This time, Warren is using recent abortion bans and restrictions in Alabama and other states as a jumping off point for a plan to expand reproductive rights.

After laying out the reality—that President Donald Trump’s pick of two...

Fake News Iran Something Something Houses Lake Fired President Bullshit!

President Donald Trump was really, sincerely On One on Friday at a speech before the National Association of Realtors. He even (gasp) swore.

Explaining that “I know so much about what you do because I did the same thing,” Trump opened his speech with an extended off-script ramble about the importance of realtors—that much-loved group—and his own experience in property development.

Noting at one...

Elizabeth Warren Gives Her Best Answer Ever On Medicare for All

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has made the most of her time at the first 2020 Democratic debate Wednesday, but her first real home run was an impassioned defense of Medicare for All. Following Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s reiteration that, well, M4A just isn’t realistic and a public option is better, Warren got fired up.

Her defense of the proposal—explicitly agreeing with the bill she and Sen. Bernie Sanders...

After weathering years of scandal, Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan is finally stepping down, according to The Hill. The bank announced today that Sloan will resign immediately from his positions as CEO, president, and board member, and will leave the company entirely on June 30th.

Sloan said in a statement that he would “step aside and devote my efforts to supporting an effective transition” at...

I Really Don't Get Why Elizabeth Warren Did a DNA Test to Prove Her Native American Heritage

I see no good reason for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the Democrat’s strongest contenders for 2020, to have engaged with Donald Trump over his repeated labeling of her as “Pocahontas” to cast doubt on her Native American heritage. But here we are.

On Monday, Warren released the results of a DNA test, conducted by a Stanford professor, which she said “strongly support” the claims she’s made...

Warren Gives a Good Answer to a Really Dumb Question

The first Democratic primary debate is underway, and right off the bat, Senator Elizabeth Warren stuck the landing in her response to a particularly stupid question about why she has so many big plans when the American economy is, ostensibly, doing so well.

“I think of it this way,” Warren began. “Who is this economy really working for?”

“It’s doing great for a thinner and thinner slice at the...

Nobody is Paying Attention to the Presidential Race Yet

The first Democratic presidential debates are this Wednesday and Thursday, and while the first contest is still eight months away, it feels like the race has been in full-throttle for eight years at this point.

After all, we’ve already gone through Lord knows how many Joe Biden gaffes and heard every conceivable policy proposal from Sen. Elizabeth Warren and holy shit, another Joe? But as a...

This piece was produced by MapLight and published in partnership with Splinter.

By one important progressive yardstick, the 10 potential and current candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination are pretty much who people thought they were.

Half of the leading Democratic candidates accepted six-figure amounts from corporate political action committees during their most recent...

Elizabeth Warren Finally Has a Game of Thrones Take We Can All Agree On

It wasn’t looking so good there for a minute, but Elizabeth Warren stuck the landing with her latest Game of Thrones take—offering up a rallying cry we can all get behind.

As my colleague pointed out yesterday, Warren’s column last month praising Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons and icy blonde, didn’t age so well in light of Sunday’s latest episode. Warren wrote in that piece that Dany...

Hello? Hello? Huh? What? Can You Hear Me? What? WHAT? MY MIC ISN'T WORKING? WHAT??

Hello? Huh? What? Can You Hear Me? What? WHAT? MY MIC ISN&#39;T WORKING? WHAT??</a>

Who knew Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s greatest opponent at the Democratic debates would be a hot mic?

As Chuck Todd tried to ask her a question about gun reform during the second half of Wednesday’s Democratic debate, hot mics clipped to the debate’s previous moderators muddied his question, confusing the candidates and the audience.

Too bad we didn’t catch anything...

John Kelly Was Furious at Elizabeth Warren for Having the Nerve to Disagree With Him

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is a true asshole and an unambiguous racist, but because of the cast of clowns he surrounds himself with, he often tends to fly under the radar. Sometimes, though, he surfaces in all his terrible glory. Case in point: in an email to an aide early last year obtained by BuzzFeed News, Kelly let loose on Sen. Elizabeth Warren for the high crime of being mad...

Wall Street Is Confused And Scared About 2020

If you wanted an easy way to narrow down the absurdly expansive field of Democratic candidates, you could do a lot worse than eliminating any candidate who isn’t hated and/or feared by Wall Street. It’s become clear that the only two who definitely make the cut are Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and a new piece in New York confirms this.

According to the magazine, among Wall Street’s...

Lindsey Graham Got a Little Too Racist Even for Fox News

One of America’s worst senators, Lindsey Graham, stopped by Fox News’ morning gabfest Fox & Friends for a hard-hitting interview on Tuesday morning, in which he said he’s planning a Donald Trump-style publicity stunt where he takes his own DNA test and apparently reveals the results on the show. Then he couldn’t help but get (even more) racist!

Speaking about his colleague Elizabeth Warren’s...

You would think that after 2016, America’s political class would be a little more hesitant to make sweeping predictions about who’s going to be at the top of everyone’s ballot in 2020, or who would win. You would, apparently, be wrong.

Politico, signifying that the main source of Joe Biden intrigue has officially moved from the minute details of his campaign rollout to “can he actually win...

Game, Set, Thrones: Elizabeth Warren Is Winning the Democratic Primary

In 2016, Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign expanded the boundaries of political possibility in the United States. Four years later, Sanders is a frontrunner—but it’s Elizabeth Warren who is setting the pace, not just for the Democratic primary, but for what the party itself should be about going forward.

Did you think that Elizabeth Warren took Risperdal? I didn’t. I doubt you did. But now we know: NO, ELIZABETH DOES NOT TAKE RISPERDAL.

What about this?

Well, they’re finally here: the first Democratic presidential primary debates of the 2020 campaign.

Spread out over Wednesday and Thursday nights, the top 20 Democratic candidates (yes, there’s more than that) will duke it out in the first real face-to-face meeting of the 2020 campaign. Thus far, it’s been a relatively tame affair as candidates have crisscrossed early primary states—schmoozing...

On Tuesday night, the Wall Street Journal reported Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign staff will unionize. The union will be represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 2320; the union’s business manager told the Journal the Warren campaign agreed with “no pushback.”

The unit will include more than 200 members of Warren’s nationwide campaign staff, per the Journal....
