Warren cracks a beer and live-cooks dinner for her man. So, is Ocasio-Cortez her campaign consultant?

We know that in setting herself up for a 2020 presidential run, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., hoped to get in front of the embarrassing Native American claim — as dismal as the effort proved to be — and now that she’s announced her candidacy, another strategy seems apparent.

Warren is running to not be Hillary.

At least, that’s the angle of a campaign video she posted on social media announcing an exploratory committee for president. In the video, she sells herself as a champion of the middle class. Just an average, everyday woman of the people.

(Never mind that Warren lives on a $1.9 million property, according to the assessed value in 2015, and has an estimated net worth of $7.8 million, according to an Open Secrets 2015 estimate.)

And what speaks to the common man or woman better than a cold brewski?

Yep, Warren posted an Instagram Live video Monday of her not only in the kitchen cooking dinner for her man but slamming cold brews in the process.

Hollywood’s got nothing on Warren when it comes to producing fantasy, and her, ahem, spontaneous efforts achieved the desired results: attention.

And adulation, even if she was dinged on Twitter for copying Rep.-elect Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who recently shared an Instagram Live video of her talking politics while cooked macaroni and cheese.

“Elizabeth Warren is on Instagram live cooking dinner and drinking a beer,” US News & World Reports’ David Catanese tweeted. “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is picking our next president. We just don’t know it yet.”

The screen grab from Catanese capturing a follower declaring how they “love this woman.”

When you think of all the failures of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, beginning with her inability to relate to average folks, Warren’s strategy is rather smart. And it comes at a time in America when populist candidates like Ocasio-Cortez and Beto O’Rourke are all the rage on the left.

The only question being, how well can Warren fool the people, because we know the media will do little to expose her hypocrisy.

It’s a wonder anyone takes Warren seriously — after all, as NewsMax’s John Cardillo pointed out, “Democrats are literally parodies of themselves.”

One thing is certain, a Warren run will provide us with plenty of entertainment in the year ahead.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
