Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Warren stuck around deep into the New York night on Monday, taking photos with each person who'd waited in line -- a process that took nearly fives times as long as the candidate spent delivering an impassioned anti-corruption address to the thousands who filled the park.

Joe Biden poses for Polaroids, which he himself flaps until developed.

It's not a "selfie" if someone else takes it. It's called a "photograph".

Were they ceiling fans or box fans? We need someone to photoshop a depiction of this, asap.

I am sure her pictures are just as flattering as Michael Dukakis tank helmet pictures - and will be worth just as much 2 years from now.

Well Fat Nixon did a beaming thumbs up photo op after visiting mass shooting victims, so there's that.

Staying for all that time shows respect for your constituents. Orange Hitler would never respect his constituents as much.

Love all the fawning over Warren...campaigning. This was a photo-op designed to embarrass the old geezers with a display of relative youth and vigor. It's good politics, that's all, not some great act of selfless courage like displayed by Brian Williams in Iraq.

Spectacle matters immensely to him. She didn't even need to pay them OT in a mineshaft.

You are simply not qualified to judge her motivation for that time spent with people wanting pictures or her entire reason for her political ambitions. You are too cynical to pretend to understand someone with real values.

#13 It's not specifically. It's the sort of glad-handing and baby kissing we expect from politicians of every creed. The only interesting part is the reverence with which this act of ordinary campaign activity is treated by the fawning media. I suppose it's such a contrast to Hillary's dottering and fainting spells that it seems unusual.

It's also a nice, refreshing change from Trump's KKKlown rallies.

#15 You're right. Warren's appearance wasn't marred by shout-down protestors.

"A Warren aide told CNN on Tuesday that she took about 4,000 "selfies" after her New York rally and has now, since kicking off her campaign last winter, posed for more than 59,000 of them in all."

Oh man, if Trump or one of his aides said something like, DR would have ten articles and there would be millions of fact checkers out there being like "Well, that would equate to xxx a day and that's not possible and a selfie is only with himself and no one else, so it's not really a selfie so blah blah blah and he really only spent 3 hours and 58 minutes and blah blah blah...HE'S A LIAR!!!!!".

I actually really wanted this to be about Trump because hate-filled Liberals are, if nothing else, very entertaining with their absurdity.

She is a professional. She does what should be done to garner support.

4 hours...

That's why its significant.

4 hours of it. That's unheard of.

Just because your candidate is a germaphobe who can't even talk to a room of people without proving himself stupid and racist doesn't mean you can't appreciate Warren letting supporters do 4 hours of selfies with her.

And that makes her a good candidate how, exactly? Beto claimed to have visited all 254 Texas counties prior to his campaign. Again, so? That claim did not help him. Both (picture taking and county visiting) sound awesome, but how does either make one a good leader?

And isn't it strange that Warren, as a top contender for the Democratic ticket and who must surely have every minute of her day penciled off to *something* suddenly coughed up four spare hours to have her picture taken with admirers. Don't tell me this wasn't pre-arranged.

Events like this make politicians into Presidents.

"And that makes her a good candidate how, exactly?"

She's the best candidate because she expresses the right things, the things Americans actually care about.
She's a good person because she actually appreciates her supporters' time which they sacrifice to come out and support her.
I read the attacks from the opposition, they fall completely flat. She has the moral authority of previous work to back up her claims to be a woman for the people, her attackers don't at all.
Now, what makes Trump a good candidate exactly? Racism? Hate? Admissions that he rips contractors off? His willingness to assault women? His subservience to Putin?
If a Democrat displayed any of that you'd be frothing at the mouth.

Was it exactly four hours? JK ...

The purpose here is to look like stamina without saying it.

Will you see Bernie or Biden attempt to do this? I doubt it. Its subtle, but works against greying DemocratClownCarOccupants.

Look for more PR stunts like this.
