But after the debate Warren stomped over to Sanders and accused him of calling her a liar on national television. It was Hillary all over again: smile and pretend to be friends but hiss and fume underneath it.
Politics is a game of smiling, waving and schmoozing. Donald Trump, in many ways, has usurped that. He does not smile and wave all that well. He is poor at schmoozing. Most importantly for anyone following the current Democratic melodrama, he does not pretend to like people. ‘I thought everyone wanted my authentic, unvarnished views!’ Hillary Clinton tweeted on Tuesday evening after her comments had spent the full day trending on Twitter. We did, but no one expected to actually get them, from her of all people.
The story we all know, that Hillary Clinton confirmed, is that politicians are phonies, who behave one way for the crowd and another behind the scenes. She peeled back the curtain on something everyone understands but rarely gets to see exposed: they all despise each other but use each other for political opportunity.
