Sen. Elizabeth Warren revealed her dream vice presidential candidate over the weekend, and her response has stunned many.
During an appearance Sunday on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber,” Warren was asked about her 2020 presidential campaign and whom she would be her “ideal” running mate if she were to win the Democratic nomination.
Warren said she would choose former President Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States who died in 1909.
“He took on the trusts. And he didn’t care how many people were going to be mad about it. And he did it — this is what’s amazing — for the right reasons,” Warren said.
“It wasn’t just that they were big. It wasn’t just that they were dominating an economy. It wasn’t just that they were putting farmers out of business and competitors out of business and small companies out of business,” she added.
The Massachusetts Democrat continued, “It was that they had too much political power. And it was the very fact of that political power that caused Teddy Roosevelt to say I’m going to be a trust buster. Man, I’d like to have that guy at my side.”
Aside from it being weird that her “ideal” running mate being someone who died 100 years ago, this is hardly the first time Warren has embarrassed herself since announcing last month that she’s running for president.
During an event in February, Warren was caught on camera yanking a young child by the harm for what appeared to be a photo-op.
When the event concluded, Warren remained on the stage and waved to the people in attendance.
After she hugged one woman, Warren then grabbed a young boy in a blue jacket by his arm and bizarrely yanked him over toward her.
It looked like she was aggressively pulling the boy over to her for a photo-op because apparently she thinks it will help her chances of winning the Democratic nomination and taking on Trump.

The Massachusetts progressive said replacing Trump was only the first step in fighting back against a system she claims is titled to only benefit the wealthy.
Ironically, Warren was completely oblivious to the fact that she was essentially raging against herself.
Warren is worth millions of dollars and cheated the system for years early in her career to help advance herself.
She cheated the system for years to fraudulently and selfishly advance her own interests and she’s only interested in going after people now that she’s amassed millions.
Warren went on to describe the American economy as tilted against the middle class, arguing that only the wealthy and political powerful are doing well since Trump took office.
That’s another outright false statement.
The United States has the hottest economy in the world, which can be traced back to Trump’s policies and goals.
The markets have remained at historic highs for over a year, over five million new jobs have been created, unemployment for minorities is at an all-time low, many Americans are getting off food stamps and government assistance, and there’s now more jobs available in the country than people who are unemployed.
Warren’s 2020 campaign may be going off the rails before it even gets going.
