Elizabeth Warren is calling supporters, and it’s brilliant.

Elizabeth Warren is giving people a new reason to pick up their phones when a call comes in from an unknown number: She might be on the line. It’s a way for the Massachusetts Democrat to thank her backers. It’s also a savvy political strategy to highlight and spread her grassroots support.

Warren ignited a viral moment over the weekend when she replied to a tweet from comedian Ashley Nicole Black asking whether the 2020 candidate, whose 2020 mantra is that she “has a plan for that,” has a plan for her love life. “DM me and let’s figure this out,” Warren, seemingly out of nowhere, replied.

Warren apparently followed up with a phone call, Black said Monday on Twitter. “Guess who’s crying and shaking and just talked to Elizabeth Warren on the phone?!?!?” she wrote.

Black isn’t the only one Warren is calling — she’s making a habit of dialing many of her supporters, and “Elizabeth Warren called me” is turning into a meme.

Presidential candidates are often described as being phony and out of touch with their constituents but Warren seems to be turning that on its head by becoming super accessible and responding to people in a one on one basis.

Now there is no way that Warren can personally respond to all of her supporters, and some people would very likely abuse this access, but even reaching out to a relatively small number increases Warren’s image of accessibility and humanity. 

One of the digs about Hillary was that she talked about policies without attaching them directly to people who would benefit from those policies. 

Elizabeth Warren is a huge policy wonk, but she is also tailoring her message to individuals and listening to their feedback. 

That is a thing that Joe Biden is famous for, and Elizabeth Warren appears to be no slouch either.

    “AOC, as she is popularly known, has more than three million followers on her Instagram account and four million follow her @AOC Twitter account, a 600 per cent increase from last June and more than 2.6 million gained in the past eight months. How does she do it?

    Unlike other politicians, she speaks the language of now, especially to her generation.” ” a combination of Buffy, Okoye and Katniss.”
    “AOC might just be tapping into the anxiety of Americans across party lines as they struggle to make ends meet while harbouring anxieties about climate change.”
    “Ocasio-Cortez is making an imprint on a generation of Americans, especially young women, with a message to get informed, get organized and get involved.”

    OT/ “From the May 23 edition of Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle:
    “I guess we are offending her by speaking about faith.” Ingraham also questioned Omar’s understanding of what it means to be American, saying, “This is a fundamental misunderstanding, purposeful or not, of what we are.” Her guest, Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed, agreed, adding, “There are few things, Laura, that are more distinctly and characteristically American than bringing your faith into the public square and using it to impact the culture for the common good.””

    Lol. Government has nothing to do with personal choices. But candidates calling people is positive.

    Elizabeth is by far my favorite candidate. I’ve been watching her for years, and I admire her so much. I think she would make a fantastic first woman President. I am especially a fan of her stance on reigning in large corporations. Would love a call from her.
