Despite her previous insistence that she wasn’t going to campaign for the presidency in 2020, Elizabeth Warren is currently vying for the Democratic Party’s official nomination ahead of the next national election cycle. As a result, she has already faced continued resistance from current president Donald Trump, while also offering up proposals for issues like student loan debt. On Sunday, Warren’s official Twitter account took things a step further when it jokingly offered to “fix” a comedian’s love life.
Ashley Nicole Black, a three-time Emmy nominee who has written for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and appeared on Comedy Central’s Drunk History series, tweeted on Saturday, “Do you think Elizabeth Warren has a plan to fix my love life?” In response, Warren’s account said, “DM me and let’s figure this out.”
Needless to say, Black and just about the rest of Twitter lost their collective minds.
Many, be they journalists covering Warren’s campaign or Twitter’s regular stock of comics and trend-followers, just couldn’t believe it.
Others, however, were fully onboard with Warren’s latest plan — regardless of its jokey, Twitter-goading nature.
And then, of course, there was the occasional joke.
Silliness aside, kudos to Sen. Warren and her team on knowing exactly how to make the internet’s day — especially on a day like today.
