With the 2020 race heating up, democratic candidates are continuing to push ever more radical policies regarding climate change in an effort to distance themselves from the enormous field.
CNN has taken full advantage of this escalation of drivel by airing a 7-hour marathon of individual “town hall”-style events for the top ten candidates last night. The focus: Climate change, and how their policies would attempt to tackle that problem should they land in the White House.
If you think that sounds like a surefire way to garner some kooky soundbites, you won’t be disappointed by Liz Warren’s tirade against the coal industry.
“Bernie Sanders has endorsed the idea of the public ownership of utilities, arguing that we can’t adequately solve this crisis without removing the profit motive from the distribution of essential needs like energy,” an attendee said.
“As president, would you be willing to call out capitalism in this way and advocate for the public ownership of our utilities?” the man asked.
Warren then made her true intentions known.
“I’m perfectly willing to take on giant corporations. I think I’ve been known to do that once or twice. But for me, I think the way we get there is we just say, ‘sorry guys, but by 2035, you’re done,’” she said.
This particular diatribe could come back to haunt Warren come 2020, given how integral the rural voters of coal country were to Donald Trump’s success in 2016.
