Charles Hurt on Warren's Lack of 'Authenticity': 'Only to Trump's Advantage'
Fox News contributor and Washington Times opinion editor Charles Hurt said Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren's lack of "authenticity" will only help President Trump heading into the 2020 election.
The Massachusetts senator on Monday announced she was forming an exploratory committee in preparation for what will likely be a presidential run.
Hours later, in a seemingly spontaneous Instagram livestream, Warren cracked open a beer and took some questions from her followers.
On "Fox & Friends" Tuesday, Hurt said it was an unsuccessful and inauthentic attempt to channel similar social-media efforts by Democrats like former Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke and incoming New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
"Imagine a Donald Trump announcement video or any kind of announcement, and you imagine the electricity that's involved, the authenticity that's involved, and you compare that to this," Hurt said, calling Warren's livestream "low-energy" and "devoid of anything that seems real whatsoever."
Host Pete Hegseth noted that in an interview with Fox News Monday, Trump said he hopes Warren gets the nomination, adding that would be a "wonderful thing for me."
Hurt agreed, saying that Trump's natural, off-the-cuff style would provide a strong contrast with Warren.
"The juxtaposition is only to Trump's advantage."
