Senator Elizabeth Warren on Coronavirus, Bloomberg, Super Tuesday & Running MateMar 04, 2020
look you are already making a positive change here we go how you are handling the
coronavirusyou must shake a million hands every day true yes but you know this is actually a time to be serious ok because this really is a threat and we need to do it take some action and we need to start taking it right now I posted another one I've been making plans on this for a while but we need to ensure that everyone who wants to get tested for
coronaviruscan do it for free when the vaccine comes out we have to do it for free we have to book money so that anyone who self-quarantines will get their paychecks refunded all those are things that make us all safer yes and we need to think and start working right now The economic consequences of these supply chains have already been they are interrupting You cannot get
materials that come from China for medicines.
You cannot get crafting parts here. That will echo in our economy. Going back to ours, we need to start a stimulus bill now and we need to tell the Federal Reserve to open the window to lend to companies that need help to get through a rough patch if they agree not to lay people off. at least minimize the health consequences and economic consequences everyone is getting better everything is getting better that's true it really is about leadership yeah and that's why when serious problems come up you can't just have a guy who believes in magic the things that he says about himself he must believe in you for the last 48 hours two of your main rivals and Tom Steyer dropped out of the race and you how do you know they are dropping out? when they are pulling out i actually spoke to amy well its happening today we have kept in close contact with me pete and i exchanged messages tom and i spoke right after were you disappointed they endorsed joe biden and not you ? look I recognize everyone sees this differently and I'm someone who's not the same as being in this career you know you started you actually mentioned it when you introduced me I'm not someone who looked in a mirror when I was 14 and said hmm future president i am someone who looked in a mirror when i was seven and said future public school teachers yes and it was like one thing led to another i have spent my whole life in teaching and my whole life revolving around this central question in law school where I spoke about what is happening to America's middle class, why what is happening to working families across the country is being hollowed out, why people who work as hard as my mom and dad worked two generations ago.

Find the way today. Lots of rock here. It is much deeper. For people of color, even more rocky and even steeper. This is a fundamental issue of whose side the government is on and that is what drew me to this race. I never thought. I should be in electoral politics so you know that 10 years ago I was still in the classroom and I would talk about what was broken and what we could do to fix it and dozens of people listened to what I reacted to then. I'm
runningfor president of United Mayor Bloomberg is that mayor Bloomberg is also
runningfor president you seem to dislike him that much isn't it's not personal it's all about him making millions of dollars and saying well that must mean he's qualified to be President of the United States and then thinks he can run for President when he has a history of adopting racist policies when he hides his tax information, looks at the White House and says there's one there. right now, but that's not proof that he thought he could run for president at a time when he has a lot of discrimination charges against him before roasting him in that debate. roast that really Did you ever think you had any idea of a thought?
That kid, when this guy is out, he'll start doling out money to all the campaigns and maybe he should be a little nice. then uh yeah you did yeah yeah and he was mad I don't know he's very price controlled and we talked about the fact that I was born and raised in Oklahoma mm-hmm and he's spending a lot of money in Oklahoma and everywhere really is yeah local tv networks you absolutely love them this is really scary uh he spent somewhere close to half a billion dollars yeah to buy his way he could have given you up If you weren't so bad that stage of debate, but it raises this fundamental question: will we be a democratic party where the only way to become the candidate is if you are a billionaire or do you spend 70% of your time fawning over them?
It's a big flaw. it's real indisputably you know it's part of the reas When I entered this race it was not only who I would fight for, it's what I've been doing my whole life, but it was also hell and I made the decision early on. I was going to do this with grassroots funds. if you think that's the right way to do it go to
warrencalm down and chip in five bucks but this is really our democracy hanging by a thread well you're accepting PAC money right now so i asked up front day one on this let's keep all
superPACs that's what you mean by
superPACs is unlimited spending do you know how many candidates agreed to accept that none of them and I asked over and over now to be fair they are the most super PACs Michael Bloomberg, who's a walking, talking super PAC, I mean, I know he's got his sock drawer, he's a super PAC, you know, loose change doesn't give you anything when he's out, I mean, when he's going, you know , but here's the thing if we're going to have unlimited spending in our careers that just fundamentally changes our democracy and we could stop it tonight you know I did in my 2012 race.
I had a deal with my Republican counterpart that m We'd keep all the super PAC money out of the race and, by God, we did, but it takes everyone's agreement. do it and that's why i think i should tomorrow is super
tuesdayyes it's 70% of us 40% of all the delegates. I'll tell you about the conversation I've had with people over and over again where people seem to Think I know something I don't know is they want to know that you know if I vote for the person I like and think they would be the best president or I vote for the person who I think couldn't beat Donald Trump. and for a lot of people they think it's two or maybe even four different people, what do you say to people who are in that frame of mind right now and are going to vote tomorrow?
So I think the first thing is you have to vote for the person. do you think he will be the best president of the United States point I t I think it is a sacred obligation of the people, but I also believe that these things do not diverge, that over time, as more is known about people, the person who will be the best president is also the person who has the best chance of beating Donald Trump because this is what it will take to take on Donald Trump, of course, but it will also need to talk about our affirmative vision of the kind of America we want be.
I'm going to go back to the way things were before, no, we have this incredible opportunity in 2020 to fix a lot of what's been broken for a long time in this country and address issues like racial justice, economic justice, and environmental justice. and social justice we have this opportunity to build a nation where every person has value and where every child is worth investing in and I think that's how we build a future in this country and I think that's also in what daylight saving time is like this weekend, what's your take on that? because I'll tell you something this is the bad one where my son gets up like five in the morning he can win a lot of votes from a lot of parents if they would get rid of this ok done ok that's a lot about his husband, her husband Bruce, my successor as well, uh huh, have you had any conversations about you guys, I mean obviously we wouldn't have a first lady?
Bruce, he would have to be the first man or something, his name is Brutus, man. Oh, Bruce Banner, so the first man with two N's, you know, I have to say this instead of being my first husband. He took a few bites into my apple. Take a good look once you find the right one. He's the perfect husband for me and because whatever I want to do to be in this fight, he's 100 percent willing to try to help, and when people joke around with him. you know you'd be the first guy and they invite him to things and people make jokes it's about this he's like okay he likes it i didn't say it's okay if this is if this is part of what helps then he's happy to do you know if you have a person in me i know it's not something you'd probably share but you have a person in mind that you feel is who i would like my running
mateto be yes but i'm not yelling ok?
Do you think maybe I feel like it would be wise to reveal those names because I think it's committee something people are excited about maybe you're right about that on the other hand think of all those people who think I'm thinking of their name oh yeah I have another theory someone you've been spending a lot of time with on the campaign trail if you were to name your dog Bailey your running mate I think America would love to love you absolutely have considered and heard Donald Trump has a pet running mate maybe you could do the same you know Bailey is running for the first dog, okay? is ready to have a dog in the White House is working Talking about the problems of him that he wants to be able to take out.
He had another running mate idea for you, a real one. Here we go. Rizzo, the music would be great, it would be she plays the flute, yes, you're thinking of her. In fact, we've done this with several candidates and I think it's only fair that we've done some merchandising for you as well. the whole song yeah well that's already one yeah oh you're a G and we got a bag you gotta have to vote for Liz she's the shiz. I'll pack all this up and tomorrow is the big day, yes it is everything. keep going you know for me it's about having built this whole movement across the country so tomorrow is a big day 40% of the delegates are up for grabs this race is obviously very fluid at this point people it's out and so on, but as I was saying before this opportunity to go out and talk to people across the country about what they're dealing with every day.
You know, a big part of it for me has been the selfie lines where you can talk one-on-one with you. , yes, and now we have taken more than a hundred thousand selfies and many of them are just funny. I know people laugh when people make faces and oh look at the family dynamic now let's stand there and you know how people do that but there are also the ones where someone walks by and the girl is adorable and she walks by and the mom gives me a hug and says please hold on to medical care she has brain cancer someone will tell me i have student loans and you are my last hope i will never get out of this hole in my whole life and then you say the other one has brain cancer brain never mind you and your student loans it's that every person i don't know yeah xx it's all fun and then some it's almost like a knife between the ribs because it's so painful thank you so much They need a government on their side that they're not asking for a handout, they're just asking for a government that stands on their side instead of siding with the billionaires who don't want to pay their fair share of taxes instead of siding with the giant corporations just gave Britain the rules in their favor and that's what 2020 is about it's not just about Donald Trump 2020 it's about how we see commitment to each other 2020 it's about how we use the tool of government to not just lift up those who have already been lifted so high but how do we use the government tool to invest and raise all voices in this country we have a great opportunity thanks for being good if you like that video then put a ring on it click the subscribe button to continuation ooh
