Elizabeth Warren says she won’t hold ‘big dollar fundraisers’ no matter how much Trump raises in 2020

Westlake Legal Group Elizabeth-Warren-Donald-Trump-AP Elizabeth Warren says she won't hold 'big dollar fundraisers' no matter how much Trump raises in 2020 Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox news fnc/media fnc article 27ce9e16-a5ce-5429-bba6-f8d80fcfc118

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has repeated her commitment to forgoing big-money fundraisers if she wins the Democratic nomination, no matter how much money President Trump pulls in from his supporters.

“I’m not going to go do the big-dollar fund-raisers. I’m just not going to do it,” Warren told CBS in an interview posted Tuesday. The 2020 hopeful said that her campaign was predicated on the notion “that we can build this together. And that’s exactly what we’re doing.”

CBS reporter Zak Hudak had asked Warren whether she could guarantee her supporters she wouldn’t utilize big-dollar fundraisers.

Warren claimed that without financial independence, candidates would continue serving wealthy interests after they were elected to office.

DEMS PUBLICLY TOUT SMALL DOLLAR DONATIONS WHILE QUIETLY COURTING BIG DOLLAR DONORS

“I will not be forced to make changes in how I raise money,” Warren said. “Look, for me, this is pretty straightforward. Either you think democracy works and electing a president is all about going behind closed doors with bazillionaires and corporate executives and lobbyists and scooping up as much money as possible.

“Or you think it’s about a grass-roots, let’s build this from the ground up.”

That answer appeared to represent a reversal for Warren after she expressed openness to big-dollar donors in a general election. Not doing so, she indicated, was “unilateral disarmament.”

“We’ll be up against a Republican machine that will be hell-bent on keeping the White House,” she told MSNBC in February. “They will have PACs and Super PACs and too many special interest groups to count, and we will do what is necessary to match them financially. That means investing — starting now — in each and every one of our state parties, and in our national party too.”

It’s unclear what was behind Warren’s apparent reversal but her comments came just days after her campaign announced it had raised $24.6 million from more than half a million individual donors in the third quarter of this year. That was substantially higher than the $15.2 million raised by former Vice President Joe Biden but slightly lower than the $25.3 million raised by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

If Warren wins the Democratic nomination, she would likely face an incumbent candidate backed by a Republican Party that has recorded record-breaking fundraising numbers.

In the third quarter alone, the Republican National Committee and President Trump’s campaign raised $125 million. Within just 24 hours in September, those two entities raked in an eye-popping $5 million — an apparent backlash to the formal impeachment inquiry announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. So far in 2019, those two organizations have raised $308 million.

Gutfeld on Liz Warren’s latest lie

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093549151001_6093549910001-vs Gutfeld on Liz Warren's latest lie Greg Gutfeld fox-news/shows/the-five/transcript/gregs-monologue fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 0e78ff11-7921-5054-9f96-b6081c65b276

You know Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. She’s the former “Native American princess” who gave up truth-telling to cash in on telling more lies.

In her latest fundraising email, she claimed she was visibly pregnant when “the principal told [her] the job … would go to someone else.”

It’s another story in which she portrays herself as the oppressed, faking victimhood to gain an edge over others, including real victims.

COLIN REED: THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION IS NOW WARREN’S TO LOSE (AT LEAST FOR THE MOMENT)

However, her pregnant-victim story fell apart when school board records obtained by the Free Beacon showed the school offered her a new contract. She quit anyway — backing up the tale she told in 2007, when she said she left by choice.

Of course, all politicians lie.

Those who say they don’t are lying too.

Warren’s lies, however, fit a pattern. It’s victim karaoke — an opportunistic deception to exploit the plight of others.

It’s no different than parking in a handicapped space and faking a limp.

It’s fraud.

Now Liz claims her Native American ruse was an honest mistake, but it still got her favorable press as the first minority woman in Harvard Law — a story so heavily promoted both by her and Harvard.

But, when she knew that scheme was imploding, she paraded that pathetic DNA test, proclaiming her Native American blood. A toaster had more. That wasn’t an honest mistake.

So, as former Vice President Joe Biden gets hit by the “Ukraine boomerang,” Warren is the frontrunner.

Will this new lie cost her in 2020? Maybe.

Trump mocks NBA coach Steve Kerr for China stance, calls him ‘little boy’

Westlake Legal Group TrumpWH092719 Trump mocks NBA coach Steve Kerr for China stance, calls him 'little boy' Morgan Phillips fox-news/world/world-regions/hong-kong fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/sports/nba/san-antonio-spurs fox-news/sports/nba/golden-state-warriors fox-news/sports/nba fox news fnc/sports fnc d7f9a078-1c2b-5c25-b305-269065992811 article

President Trump mocked Golden State Warriors coach and frequent critic Steve Kerr for how he responded to a question about a controversy between China and the NBA, calling Kerr a “little boy.”

Trump took shots at San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich as well.

“He was like a little boy, he was so scared. … He was shaking,” Trump said of Kerr when he was asked for his thoughts on whether the Chinese were wrong to be putting pressure on the NBA after Houston Rockets manager Daryl Morey tweeted out a since-deleted photo in support of anti-government protesters in Hong Kong. Protesters have for months demonstrated against China allegedly infringing on their Western-style democratic rights.

“He didn’t know how to answer the question,” Trump said, referring to when Kerr was asked if he had any thoughts on the NBA-China controversy. Kerr said he didn’t.

“I watched Popovich, sort of the same thing, but he didn’t look quite as scared, actually. But they talk badly about the United States — but when (they) talk about China, they don’t want to say anything bad,” Trump continued. He accused the two coaches of “pandering” to China, though on Oct. 1 Trump himself tweeted a congratulations to the People’s Republic of China for 70 years of communist rule. Trump has remained largely silent on Hong Kong demonstrations.

The NBA has had a growing relationship with China, but voicing support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong threatens to damage that relationship. After Morey’s tweet, the Chinese Basketball Association said it would suspend all cooperation with the Houston Rockets, and the sports channel of China’s top state broadcaster announced it would suspend airing Houston Rockets events on television.

“It’s a really bizarre international story. A lot of us don’t know what to make of it. It’s something I’m reading about like everybody is, but I’m not gonna comment further,” Kerr said of the controversy.

Popovich praised league commissioner Adam Silver’s measured response to the controversy, in which he pledged not to restrict free speech, and pivoted to listing grievances against Trump without naming him directly.

Silver has “been a heck of a leader in that respect and very courageous. Then you compare it to what we’ve had to live through the past three years, it’s a big difference,” Popovich said. “A big gap there, leadership-wise and courage-wise. It wasn’t easy for him to say. He said that in an environment fraught with possible economic peril. But he sided with the principles that we all hold dearly, or most of us did until the last three years. I’m thrilled with what he said. The courage and leadership displayed is off the charts by comparison.”

After Morey’s “Stand with Hong Kong” tweet, NBA owners incited outrage for appearing to side with deep-pocketed Beijing powerbrokers over one of their own employees.

Rockets owner Tillman Fertitta tweeted to say Morey “does NOT speak for” the team.

Morey also backtracked on his initial support. “I did not intend my tweet to cause any offense to Rockets fans and friends of mine in China,” he wrote. “I was merely voicing one thought, based on one interpretation, of one complicated event. I have had a lot of opportunity since that tweet to hear and consider other perspectives.”

Silver issued a statement Tuesday saying the league “will not put itself in a position of regulating what players, employees and team owners say or will not say on these issues.”

“It is inevitable that people around the world – including from America and China – will have different viewpoints over different issues,” Silver said in the statement. “It is not the role of the NBA to adjudicate those differences,” Silver continued.

Jenna Dewan is hitting the dance floor yet again, but this time, as a television host.

Dewan, 38, known for her work in “Step Up” and its sequels, will host “Flirty Dancing,” which will include blind dates and dance performances.

Contestants will each be taught a partial dance routine before meeting their partner for the first time on a blind date to perform together.

Unlike the U.K version of the same name, the American version will feature contestants dancing with two potential love interests, and choosing which one they have better chemistry with, according to a press release obtained by Fox News.

In a statement, Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox, called the show “fun, fresh and romantic,” adding that it “broadens the dating format far beyond its traditional boundaries.”

Rihanna calls Trump ‘most mentally ill human being in America’

Rihanna is speaking her mind.

The singer and actress spoke with Vogue Magazine to discuss her music, business ventures, and politics — and she did not hold back.

When discussing gun violence in America, Rihanna, 31, expressed her theory that President Trump is so dismissive of mass shootings because they are so often carried out by white men.

“The fact that it’s classified as something different because of the color of their skin? It’s a slap in the face. It’s completely racist,” Rihanna said.

“Put an Arab man with that same weapon in that same Walmart and there is no way that Trump would sit there and address it publicly as a mental health problem,” said the singer. “The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president.”

Rihanna previously spoke out against the president and his responses to mass shootings on Instagram.

WATCH: Children confront Justin Trudeau on why he painted his face brown

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has had to weather questioning from two children over his decision to darken his skin at a school party while working as a teacher.

The exchange occurred during an episode of the Facebook Watch show “New Mom, Who Dis?” posted on Wednesday.

“Why did you paint your face brown?” a girl standing with her twin sister asked Trudeau.

“Ooh, it was something I shouldn’t have done because it hurt people,” he said. “It’s not something that you should do and that is something that I learned. I didn’t know it back then but I know it now — and I’m sorry I hurt people.”

Trudeau apologized last month for wearing brownface makeup to an “Arabian Nights” party at the private school where he was teaching in 2001, saying, “I should have known better.”

Wednesday’s episode, hosted by Canadian TV personality Jessi Cruickshank, showed the girl following up by asking Trudeau whether he painted both his hands and nose brown. “Yeah and it was the wrong thing to do,” the prime minister responded.

“And I had a good conversation with my kids around taking responsibility for my mistakes and making sure that we’re always sticking up for each other and not teasing each other and being respectful towards each other.

“And I’m sorry that I hurt you as well. I’m sorry that I hurt kids who … face teasing and discrimination because of the color of their skin. That’s just not right in this country or anywhere around the world. We all have to work together to make sure that that doesn’t happen.”

Former ‘Today’ co-host Ann Curry believes Lauer rape accuser: It ‘breaks my heart’

Former “Today” anchor Ann Curry declared she believes the rape allegation leveled against her former colleague Matt Lauer, saying it “breaks her heart.”

Curry — who worked on the show from 1997 to 2015 — said Wednesday she considered the woman who made the allegations against Lauer to be a “credible young woman of good character.”

“She came to NBC News an eager and guileless 20-something, brimming with talent,” Curry tweeted.

“I believe she is telling the truth. And that breaks my heart.”

MATT LAUER CLAIMS SECRET DOOR-LOCKING BUTTON AT NBC OFFICE ‘DIDN’T EXIST’

REVELATION OF DISGRACED MATT LAUER’S ‘SECRET DOOR BUTTON’ RAISES EYEBROW

The comment came after shocking allegations about Lauer, reportedly revealed in an upcoming book by Ronan Farrow, drew a sharp and somber reaction from the disgraced anchor’s former colleagues on “Today” Wednesday.

Lauer, who was fired from NBC News for sexual misconduct in 2017, was accused of a sex crime in graphic detail in a Variety article, which reported reading the bombshell claims in a copy of Farrow’s upcoming book “Catch and Kill” that it obtained.

“Matt Lauer’s conduct was appalling, horrific and reprehensible, as we said at the time. That’s why he was fired within 24 hours of us first learning of the complaint. Our hearts break again for our colleague,” NBC News said in a statement that was read on air.

Lauer denied the graphic rape claim in a strongly worded letter that his lawyer provided to Fox News on Wednesday, in which the former “Today” co-host said he initially was quiet for the sake of his children — but will now defend himself.

“It is alleged that an extramarital, but consensual, sexual encounter I have previously admitted having, was in fact an assault. It is categorically false, ignores the facts, and defies common sense,” Lauer wrote.

“I had an extramarital affair with [a colleague] in 2014. It began when she came to my hotel room very late one night in Sochi, Russia. We engaged in a variety of sexual acts… each act was mutual and completely consensual,” Lauer added.

But, as Variety reported, Farrow wrote that the former NBC News employee — whose complaint eventually led to Lauer’s firing in 2017 — said the incident occurred after she ran into Lauer at a hotel bar over drinks with Meredith Viera during the Sochi Olympics.

Fox News is not naming the alleged victim at this time, despite Farrow, Variety and Lauer’s attorney each revealing her identity.

Farrow reportedly wrote that the accuser went to Lauer’s hotel room twice that night, first because Lauer jokingly took her press credentials and a second time because the ex-NBC News host invited her back.

She “had no reason to suspect Lauer would be anything but friendly based on prior experience,” Farrow wrote, according to Variety.

The accuser reportedly told Farrow that on the second visit to his room, Lauer kissed her against the door then flipped her over on the bed and asked her if she “liked anal sex.”

Farrow reportedly wrote that the alleged victim said she didn’t want to partake in the act several times before she eventually cried into a pillow while Lauer proceeded without her consent. According to Variety, the accuser indicated that she was in pain for several days after the ‘nonconsensual” incident.

NBC News Chairman Andy Lack, a key figure of the Variety report, also issued a statement that was read aloud on “Today.”

“Our highest priority is to ensure we have a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected. We are absolutely committed to making this a reality. There can be no exception,” Lack said.

In 2018, Lauer issued a statement that denied all alleged wrongdoing, which was re-aired on “Today” on Wednesday in regards to the latest allegation.

“I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive behavior actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false,” Lauer said at the time in the re-broadcast clip.

Fox News has not seen a copy of the closely guarded book, “Catch and Kill,” which is set to be released Oct. 15.
