The start of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 presidential campaign is a real grabber.
During an event on Saturday to officially announce that she’s running for president, the Massachusetts Democrat not only had attendees leave early, she also bizarrely yanked a child to stand closer to her on the stage.
Toward the end of her rally, Warren can be seen embracing a woman for a quick hug on the stage.
Then, she grabbed a young boy in a blue jacket by his arm and aggressively yanked him over to her before cracking a weird smile and waving to the crowd.

Beyond that, Warren’s event was apparently so boring that several of the attendees who were standing behind her on the stage left early.
A duo was seen huddled together under a blanket behind Warren. As the two hour rally dragged on, they had apparently had enough and left.
The man wearing a green shirt could be seen whispering in the woman’s ear next to him, and then they both got up together and headed for the exit.
During her speech, Warren peddled her usual talking points, but she spent a bizarre amount of time railing against the rich.
Warren raged against the “wealthy and well connected” despite the fact that she’s worth million of dollars and is very well-connected, in part because she lied for years about being Native American in order to advance her career and receive special treatment.
“The man in the White House is not the cause of what is broken, he’s just the latest and most extreme symptom of what’s going wrong in America,” Warren shouted.
“A product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful and gives dirt on everyone else,” she added.

On Sunday, just one day after her atrocious 2020 announcement event, Warren kicked it up a notch and suggested that President Donald Trump may not run for re-election in 2020 because he will be in jail.
While speaking at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Warren disgustingly claimed, without any evidence, that Trump could be incarcerated in the near future.
“By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person,” she said, with the liberal crowd cheering.
Warren went on to describe Trump as being “the symptom of a badly broken system,” which she said requires “action.”
“So our job, as we start rolling into the next election, is not just to respond on a daily basis, it’s to talk about what we understand that is broken in this country, talk about what needs to be done to change it, and talk about how we’re going to do it,” Warren said.
“Because that is not only how we win, it’s how we make the change we need to make,” she added.
