In a Twitter spat last week, 2020 presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) alleged that Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was abandoning his constituents for a “fat lobbyist paycheck.” As you might imagine, Gowdy isn’t letting her get away with it. Appearing on Fox News, he called her out for a “demonstrably false allegation.” “If you are going to criticize the president and other people for being loose with the facts, don’t be loose with the facts yourself,” Gowdy fired back. He also used the opportunity to dog Warren for her uncomfortable efforts to compete with charming-if-intellectually-vacant Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by awkwardly drinking beer on an Instagram livestream. Warren, the consummate ivory tower intellectual, is hoping to have it both ways as the uber brain and the everyman. Though it will fail miserably, it’s gonna be quite entertaining to watch as Democrats tear themselves apart.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., began her 2020 campaign with a “demonstrably false allegation,” according to former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.
The pair had a Twitter spat last week which centered on Warren claiming Gowdy was leaving politics for a “fat lobbyist paycheck.”
“If you are going to criticize the president and other people for being loose with the facts, don’t be loose with the facts yourself,” Gowdy said on Fox News. “She is running for president of the United States. And she kicks it off by making a demonstrably false allegation against a former colleague.”
Since leaving Congress last week, Gowdy has rejoined his old law firm, Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, in South Carolina as a white-collar defense attorney.
In a tweet Friday, Warren claimed he retired because he “just wanted a fat lobbyist paycheck,” adding “That should be illegal.”
