Sanders and Warren flew to Miami ahead of Democratic debates
In the Twitter photo posted by The Hill’s Steve Clemons, Warren is seated behind Sanders on a crowded commercial flight to Miami, where the first Democratic presidential debates will be held next week.
In the snapshot, Bernie appears to be reading something, while Warren is on her phone. Not surprisingly, both were seated on the left wing of their airplane.
Making the photo especially comical is the annoyed, sullen facial expression of an unidentified man seated next to Sanders and in front of Warren. The guy does not look thrilled to be sitting next to the Democratic presidential frontrunners.
Off2Miami! @BernieSanders in Seat 15A Thought Bubble: "Is she going to kick my chair? I know she's going to kick my chair! Elizabeth, don't even think of kicking my chair!" @ewarren in 16A Thought Bubble: "I'm going to kick it the exact moment he thinks I won't." @thehill pic.twitter.com/jOTAJSyIwu

‘I can’t believe I get to sit next to Larry David’
Not surprisingly, Twitter users had a blast reacting to the awkward snapshot.
One person remarked: “Seat 15B Thought Bubble: “I can’t believe I get to sit next to Larry David.”

Another quipped: “Maybe she should kick his chair 😉😉😉”

Still another Twitter user joked that Warren is probably trying to copy Sanders’ next move. “I’m surprised she’s not looking over his shoulder for her next plan.🙄

Some remarked that the guy in the next seat is worried that socialists Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren want to take all his money.
He's probably worried about his wallet with those two around

Warren and Sanders battling it out in early polls
In all seriousness, things are heating up among the crowded field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. After comfortably leading in the polls for weeks alongside frontrunner Joe Biden, Sanders has been losing his edge.
A new Economist/YouGov poll has Warren inching ahead of Sanders, although both trail Biden:
- Biden: 24%
- Warren: 16%
- Sanders 12%
In a recent Monmouth poll, Warren and Sanders are almost neck-and-neck:
- Biden: 32%
- Warren: 15%
- Sanders 14%.
That said, all the polls will change the closer we get to the election, since campaigning season has just begun. It’ll be interesting to see how long the Democrats can keep from attacking each other, since their main goal is to defeat President Donald Trump, whose base is on fire.
Trump’s base is electrified, and that terrifies the media
Meanwhile, the mainstream media are growing increasingly anxious about the lack of enthusiasm among Democratic voters, as BizPac Review reported.
“Why don’t the Democrats pack stadiums the way this president does?” CNN opinion host Chris Cuomo asked. “I don’t think Democrats are packing any place the way he is.”
Cuomo added: “It has to mean something that as Democrats are playing these little clubs in Iowa and New Hampshire, Donald Trump is playing arenas. People were lined up for more than a day in the Florida heat for this rally [on June 18]. He has the biggest crowds at his events.”
You better believe it. Look at this fired-up crowd. They waited 40 hours in the 90-degree Florida heat and rain to see their commander-in-chief.

President Trump agrees that his supporters are ride-or-die.
Democrats have their work cut out for them, so even mass-importing illegal-alien voters, bribing black Americans with false promises of slavery reparations, and launching desperate last-minute attacks on Trump won’t work.
