It’s not often that I praise Elizabeth Warren, and I know she wouldn’t appreciate it if she found out. Which she won’t, because I’m beneath her notice. Nonetheless, I’m about to give her some very, very faint praise for a good deed she didn’t even know she was doing at the time.
Remember when Fauxcahontas stopped by that lemonade stand in Iowa last month, and all the journos were swooning because she’s such a down-to-earth woman of the people?

Just happened to come across @ewarren buying lemonade from some girls in Harlan. It was $7 — she gave them $10.

Have you ever seen anything so amazing in your life? Etc.
Well, Warren’s adoring fans might not have been so happy if they knew what happened to the money she gave those kids. Yuichiro Kakutani, Washington Free Beacon:
When Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) purchased drinks from two girls running a lemonade stand in August, she may not have been aware that her $10 purchase would be donated to a pro-life charity.
“Our daughters thought [Warren] was nice,” Dan Michels, a Trump supporter and a father to one of the girls, told the Washington Free Beacon. “She came by and told us we should vote for her. And our daughters told us she was a nice person, but we don’t align with her politically and … because she’s pro-choice, we said we should donate her money to a pro-life [cause]…”
The girls and their parents decided to donate to the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, a non-profit that supports pro-life legislation.
If that money saves just one baby from being aborted… Warren had better hope her base doesn’t find out! March for Life? Ooof. As far as the average Democrat sees it, she might as well have kicked RBG in the teeth.
Journalists and other Democrats love killing babies, so their politicians should probably avoid lemonade stands from now on. Not just in Iowa, but anywhere. It’s no fun, but the only method that’s 100% effective is abstinence.
