Publicity stunt?: Warren promoted new book right before Senate rule-breaking fiasco

Sen. Elizabeth Warren — a.k.a. Hillary Clinton 2.0 — received quite a bit of publicity Tuesday when she violated Senate Rule 19 in a feeble attempt to prove that now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a racist.

And publicity might be exactly what she wanted:

Right before Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) took to the Senate floor on Tuesday night to read Coretta Scott King’s 1986 letter to oppose Jeff Sessions for attorney general, her publishing company tweeted out the release date of her new book, This Fight Is Our Fight.

Warren had previously said she opposed President Trump’s nominee to head the Justice Department, but she did not forcefully mount her campaign against the Alabama senator until after publisher Henry Holt announced Tuesday at 3:09 p.m. that her book will be coming out on April 18.

At 4:40 p.m., Warren shared the link to preorder her book on her Facebook page:

Three hours later, Warren was silenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the Senate floor. Leftists immediately went into an uproar, completely ignoring the fact that Warren absolutely violated a rule while drawing absurd comparisons to the likes of Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman. Major media outlets everywhere covered the fiasco — and Warren received a whole lot of free publicity for her new book.

But she didn’t stop there:

Around 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday, hours after the incident on the Senate floor, Warren sent an email to supporters soliciting donations, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported Wednesday evening. The email explained what happened that night and included a donation button.

Minutes after sending her email to supporters, Warren called CNN’s Don Lemon to discuss the incident on television.

MoveOn members contributed $250,000 to Warren’s re-election campaign in about 12 hours, CNN reported.

The only person Warren is fighting for is herself.

    Only the liberal will believe in this, and guess what, buy her book and she will richer.

    Well, normally I am not much into pressing for an option in another state. But Pocahontas Warren might be fun, ducking Curt Schilling pitches in the US Senate election of 2018 in Massachusetts.
    Hopefully she returns back to her tee-pee..bogus American Indian!
    Yikes! Don’t the people of Massachusetts have more brsins than to elect a screeching chalk board.
