Elizabeth Warren is useless

First, this from Twitchy: "2020 will be LIT: Trump says he’ll offer opponent Elizabeth Warren $1 million for DNA test."

Trump seizes upon Elizabeth Warren's questionable heritage because it exposes the hypocrisy of the identity-politics Democrats.  C'mon, it's not even up for debate that she usurped an affirmative action spot at Harvard.  But if you want to know why I dislike Pocahontas, it's this:
Warren was the primary sponsor of 5 bills that were enacted.
That's right: for somebody who is supposed to be a leader of the Democrats, who never shuts up about all the "fighting" and "persisting" she does, her legislative record is wafer-thin.  Five pieces of legislation.  Here they are:
S. 2355: A bill to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 25 New Chardon Street Lobby in Boston, Massachusetts, as the “John Fitzgerald Kennedy Post ...
S. 1198: Veterans Care Financial Protection Act of 2017
S. 670: Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017
S. 2744 (114th): Genetic Research Privacy Protection Act
S. 885 (114th): National POW/MIA Remembrance Act of 2015
One of her five accomplishments is re-naming a post office.  As much as I dislike his politics, here's the legislative record for the junior Senator from Massachusetts:
Markey was the primary sponsor of 26 bills that were enacted.
There's a post office or two in there also but at least this guy is working the legislative levers to get something done for the citizens of Massachusetts and/or America.  Meanwhile, Liz is just taking up space and leaving a brick on the "NO" button.

C'min man, that post office wasn't going to name itself.

Don't forget about her doing the same thing Penn - that's how she got a leg up at Hahhhvard.

Trump suggests he would like to test Elizabeth Warren for Native American heritage, "but we have to do it gently because we're in the MeToo generation."

Patton Oswalt:
Just so we’re clear: Our President, tonight, attempted a sort-of rape joke that was also a kind-of racist joke that then ended up not even being a joke. To a crowd that laughed and cheered. #MAGA

That's, um, quite the stretch, Patton - I would have feigned offence at the cultural appropriation of the word Pocahontas.

That's why the comedian is the one who knows how comedy works, and how it doesn't.

Besides not being a witty suggestion, feigning offense doesn't exactly make you unique among the right wing.
