Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) guest-starred on Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" Tuesday shortly after kicking off her nationwide book tour in New York City.
The Massachusetts Democrat made a odd face when pressed about the rumors on NBC's "Today Show" on Tuesday, while insisting that she's focused on running for reelection to the Senate in 2018.
"We're viewing this book tour as a soft launch of her presidential campaign", Reed said. Warren also jokingly referred to her "nerdiness" whenever she cited statistics, and noted that when she offered "facts", she didn't mean "alternative facts".
Texas Senator Ted Cruz offered words of warning for any Republicans who fail to cooperate with President Donald Trump's policy decisions as Commander-in-Chief, saying that such renegade behavior could cost conservatives the White House in 2020. She was asked if the book was kicking off a possible bid for the White House. It is easy to imagine a scenario where the popular Warren and her fiery populist platform sweep through the Democratic primaries. Last week, she told USA media that she opted out of the 2016 presidential election because of the "terrible" nature of the campaign.
"This Fight is Our Fight" is Warren's 11th book and ranked No. 42 on Amazon.com as of late Tuesday. Are you likely to run? You need to have an opponent run a bad campaign. And I saw this little girl, and she was riding on her daddy's shoulders, and she's holding up this sign, and the sign said, "I fight like a girl". "Have you ever seen a woman like me look you straight in the face after you've finished some long explanation of something and then just said poop?"
"Mitch!" Fallon cried. "Mitch McConnell, you have to say hi to Elizabeth Warren. My life's work is about what is happening to working families across this country".
