Warren Copies Beto, Ocasio-Cortez with Kitchen Live-Stream

On Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took a page from the playbook of a couple of rising political stars in the Democrat Party, live-streaming herself drinking a beer in her kitchen hours after launching a 2020 presidential exploratory committee.

“I’m here in my kitchen — and um — I thought maybe we’d just take some questions and I’d see what I can do,” Warren began as she stared into her camera broadcasting to Instagram Live. At one point during the live-stream, Warren cracked open a beer and offered one to her husband, who declined.

Both newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and failed Texas Senator Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke have used live-streaming from their kitchens to connect with constituents.
