[People] applaud Warren in heart of MAGA country (West Virginia)

KERMIT, W. Va. — It was a startling spectacle in the heart of Trump country: At least a dozen supporters of the president — some wearing MAGA stickers — nodding their heads, at times even clapping, for liberal firebrand Elizabeth Warren.

The sighting alone of a Democratic presidential candidate in this town of fewer than 400 people — in a county where more than four in five voters cast their ballot for Trump in 2016 — was unusual. Warren’s team was apprehensive about how she’d be received.

About 150 people gathered at the Kermit Fire & Rescue Headquarters Station to hear the Massachusetts senator and former Harvard professor talk about what she wants to do to fight the opioid epidemic. Trump-supporting college students in baggy t-shirts, housewives in pearls, and the fire chief dressed in uniform joined liberal retirees wearing rainbow “Persist” shirts and teachers with six-figure student loan debt.

1. I love that she visits

 

these small towns and isn’t afraid to venture and take her message into areas that are deep red. Can anyone imagine the Dumpster even showing his ugly mug in front of a group that isn’t full of his ardent worshippers?

2. Video of Elizabeth after her Kermit town hall...

 



As folks came through the photo line after our town hall in Kermit, West Virginia, a few of them pressed notes into my hand. I took a moment as we left town to read them.


Love her fearlessness and authenticity.

4. Thanks for the video.

 

I live in a red state, too. I hope she visits. I would drive to a blue state, to see her, though.

5. I love her energy.

 

I love how she speaks in specifics. She knows what's needed & how to get it done, and she communicates it so well to the groups she visits. Thanks for sharing the video.
