Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) held a town hall in Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend, bragging to her 2.6 million Twitter followers that the event represents “what democracy looks like.”
For a class-warfare warrior who rails against the very people who live in Martha’s Vineyard, Warren appeared quite comfortable at the event.
Holy guacamole, we had 1300 people at our Martha's Vineyard town hall this morning! This is what democracy looks like. Thank you for coming! pic.twitter.com/k4muqC67SO

According to Vineyard Gazette:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren urged an overflow crowd to get organized and get involved in the nation’s fractured political scene at a high-energy town hall meeting Saturday morning. More than 1,000 people filled the Performing Arts Center at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, spilling out into the lobby and the sidewalks outdoors.
Questions ranged from student loan debt to the environment, but most discussion was dominated by the expected vote in the Senate next week on a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
“A spear has a tip. And right now it’s the health care debate that’s in front of us,” Senator Warren said. “Next week may be critical . . . they want to completely defund Planned Parenthood, where two million women get their health care services. Mostly women who live in areas where they don’t have other access to health care . . . Those are the places we have to keep the focus, right this minute.”
In opening remarks the senator said: “Who thinks we are improving health care by having 22 million people have their health care cut?”
Soon after boasting about the ‘success’ of the event on Twitter, Warren was roasted for her hypocrisy.

Did you remember them that you'll do anything to win, including lie about your fake native American heritage? #fraud
