Boston columnist claims Warren candidacy will make Trump’s day

Howie Carr explains in a Boston Herald column why he believes U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential bid could end up helping Donald Trump.

Consider her own words — the statement that will launch a thousand tweets, and that’s just from POTUS.

She wants Americans “to be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules …”

Is a white honky cracker ofay silver-spoon WASP from the ultra-exclusive 02138 zip code claiming to be a “Cherokee” to grab two tenured affirmative-action Ivy League professorships “playing by the same set of rules” as everybody else?

“America’s middle class is under attack … (Government) has become a tool for the wealthy and well-connected.”

This, from a fake Indian who was paid $350,000 to teach one class at Harvard Law School. Who got a zero-interest loan from Harvard to buy her $3-million mansion on Linnaean Street in Cambridge. Who in her first campaign exhorted her supporters to talk her up with the people “standing behind you at the cheese shop.” Who, when asked by a slobbering acolyte on MSNBC if she owned stock, replied, “No, only mutual funds.” …

… Somehow I seem to have been excised from her email list, but the stories say she asked her followers to tell her why she should run.

My response is, because it’ll make my job as a newspaper columnist a lot easier. Because it’ll get me many more bookings on the Fox News Channel. Because I can write a lot more cornball jokes about how your campaign is destined for the political Happy Hunting Grounds.
