September 18, 2019

Political reporters and cable news anchors were impressed by Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass.) ability to stand and take "selfies" for four hours after her rally on Monday night.

"The fact that she can do this for even four hours ... that in and of itself is pretty remarkable," CNN correspondent MJ Lee said.

Reporters from the Washington Post, New York Times, and CBS shared on social media their amazement at Warren's ability to stand and pose for hours.

It was so impressive NBC News decided to publish a piece titled, "Warren spent hours taking selfies with supporters after her big rally. Here's why."

In interviews with CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Warren explained why she spends hours taking photos with supporters.

"Yeah, I was there four hours, but I'll tell you what: so was the last guy in line," Warren told Maddow.

MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell compared Warren's explanation to fictional political drama The West Wing.

Warren gave a speech Monday night at Washington Square Park in New York City discussing how she would fight corruption. Her campaign estimated 20,000 people were in attendance and about 4,000 "selfies" were taken after the speech. The Warren campaign has made it a priority for the senator to take photos with voters after all of her events. They call the pictures "selfies" even when another person takes the photo.
