Warren Gives Awkward Press Conference


Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren clumsily dodged questions and exchanged one-sentence responses to reporters at her first press conference with Gov. Deval Patrick since the election, the Boston Herald reports:

Warren spoke for a total of less than four minutes during the 11-minute press conference — the rest was taken up by Patrick and reporters’ questions.

After being asked her first question — how she’d protect defense spending — Warren was silent as she turned to Patrick. […]

Earlier, Warren power-walked past press photographers as she got off a State House elevator and went into Patrick’s office, blowing a potential photo op. The press conference also started about 40 minutes late.
