Elizabeth Warren spoke of Pete Buttigieg’s exclusive “wine cellar” meeting in the Democratic debate a few days ago and now actress Jane Lynch is also involved in the controversial fundraiser. However, after the Glee star shared her opinion, she received a lot of social media criticism!
Lynch told Warren via Twitter yesterday that “the class war was ugly” and that was not all!
She also added that “billionaires in wine cellars have just as much to say who can become president as waitresses in restaurants and plumbers in my bathroom.”
However, as might be well intended, many people online were not fans of the message it conveyed and continued to defend Warren’s critics against fundraising from Buttigieg’s closed cellar.
Users pointed out that his position on the subject only “ minimizes the corrupting influence of money in politics ”. / “A billionaire should have no more say than all the plumbers across the country.”
As for the statement that started it all and came from Warren, it was made Thursday during a debate, reports the Los Angeles Times.
She said to the crowd, “The mayor just held a fundraiser that took place in a wine cellar full of crystals and served $ 900 a bottle of wine. Think of who is coming to this. He had promised that every fundraiser he would do would be open, but it was closed. We decided years ago that the wealthy in smoky rooms would not choose the next President of the United States. “
