Just call it Pocahontas Inc. Democrat demagogue Elizabeth Warren is using her fame to scam liberal suckers out of their money by selling cheaply made, overpriced crap with her name and cheesy slogans on it.
While her legions of loyalist fans are flocking to buy her merchandise like she was Lady Gaga, they would be wise to consider that she has already parlayed her fake Indian story into a lucrative career in the Senate and possibly the 2020 nomination and is an accomplished flim-flam artist.
Perhaps, she is just fleecing all of the suckers for a fistful of wampum now that demand is at its peak.
She even has her own online STORE.

Via Politico “Inside the Elizabeth Warren merchandising empire”:
Prayer candles. Action figures. Temporary tattoos. Coloring books.
Elizabeth Warren isn’t just a progressive icon, she’s a merchandising industry unto herself.
The Massachusetts senator and presidential prospect is at the center of a sprawling business built around her appeal to liberals across the country — a reminder of the unabashed devotion she inspires on the left and the footprint she’ll cast in the 2020 Democratic primary.
“Elizabeth Warren is an increasingly popular brand that people want to associate with,” said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. “She’s the Apple of politics.”
It’s impossible to know the true size of the Warren merchandising-industrial complex. The bulk of it exists beyond the Democratic senator’s control on sites like online marketplace Etsy. And her campaign, which hosts its own online store, declined to disclose the exact amount of money it raises from merchandise sales.
But it’s safe to say no other senator has anything like it.
Warren’s campaign store has expanded beyond traditional political fare such as buttons, bumper stickers, tote bags and T-shirts to offer a line of products that capitalize on the “Nevertheless, she persisted” meme spawned by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s much-publicized admonishment of Warren on the Senate floor earlier this year.
Several items are sold out at the moment — among them the $9.99 temporary tattoos. According to the Warren campaign, the tattoos were inspired by attendees to Warren’s home-state town halls this spring who showed up with permanent ink bearing the McConnell quote. The senator gave her blessing for the temporary tat, which uses her handwriting to spell out the quote in dark blue ink.
YES! You too can score the following items for that loony liberal near and dear to your heart:
A pack of five “Nevertheless She Persisted” temporary tattoos: $9.95 (SOLD OUT !)
A cheesy white plastic “She Presisted” coffee mug: $19.95 (HINT: You can buy the mug at any Dollar Store and write the inscription yourself)
A “Nevertheless She Presisted” pink pussy “rally hat“: $29.99 (ALSO SOLD OUT!)
And those Kim Jong-un blue blazers? Not available yet but they may be here in time for Christmas at a premium price.
It’s really very gauche and disgusting but entirely consistent with the divisive, garbage bin politics practiced by the Democrats and one has to wonder how much of this crap has been purchased from the clearance sale at Hillary’s own store and altered.
