Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), who curiously unveiled her "free college" plan on communist agitator Vladimir Lenin's birthday, continues to wage war on the English language. Since June, her campaign has carried out a "selfie strategy" involving "selfie lines" at events. Supporters wait in line—for hours, in some cases—to take a photo with the candidate, and are encouraged to share the images on social media, a medium that was artfully mastered by President Donald J. Trump during his historically victorious campaign against Hillary Clinton, the once-prominent public orator.
Unfortunately for Warren, 70, a prior Washington Free Beacon analysis found that her so-called "selfie strategy" is a perverse prevarication. By now even elderly Americans are familiar with the term "selfie," which was formally included in the Merriam-Webster dictionary in 2014 and defined as "an image that includes oneself (often with another person or as part of a group) and is taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks" (emphasis added).

In reality, Warren's "selfies" are almost always taken by a campaign aide and cast doubt on the candidate's commitment to the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Warren's campaign, aided by the corrupt mainstream media, continues to bastardize the popular term for the candidate's personal and political gain.
Twenty thousand people attended a recent Elizabeth Warren rally in New York City and throngs of them remained afterward to snap a photo with the senator, who has made the selfie line a feature of her campaign. https://t.co/Qs8uvZoVHF

The last person to take a selfie with @ewarren? Me!! She was present & vibrant after 4 hours of selfies! She will keep her promises. If she says she'll take a selfie with everyone, she will. And she'll keep her promises when she's in the White House too. #WarrenNYC@claretoenis pic.twitter.com/4rdYcev29B

In light of this sustained deception—whether due to recklessness or sheer incompetence—perhaps Democratic voters should think twice before nominating Warren as the candidate to take on President Trump, who has occasionally been criticized by leftists for stretching the so-called "truth."
If Warren doesn't know or care enough to run a campaign based on accurate terminology, how much confidence should the American people have in her ability to stand up to Vladimir Putin? Is her definition of "Ukraine" similarly flexible? These are just a few of the important questions the mainstream media refuse to ask.
