Elizabeth Warren Tears Up During 'Kimmel' Interview Ahead of Super Tuesday (Video)

Elizabeth Warren stops by Jimmy Kimmel Live! for an emotional appearance ahead of Super Tuesday.

The 70-year-old U.S. Senator chatted with host Jimmy Kimmel on Monday (March 2).

While discussing her Democratic presidential campaign and Super Tuesday, Elizabeth said, “For me, it’s about having built this whole movement across the country. We’ve now done well over 100,000 selfies. A lot of them are just fun, people giggle and make funny faces. But there are also the ones where somebody comes through—the little girl is adorable and she passes on through, and the mom gives me a hug and says, ‘Please hang on to health care, she has brain cancer.’ Someone will say to me, ‘I have student loans and you’re my last hope. I am never going to get out of this hole in my whole life.’”

“It’s about every 20th person,” she continued. “It’s all fun and then someone, it’s honestly like a knife between the ribs because it is so painful. They so much need a government on their side. They’re not asking for a handout—they’re just asking for a government that’s on their side.”

“Number one, you have to vote for the person you think would make the best president of the United States, period,” she added. “I think that’s people’s sacred obligation. But I also believe those things don’t diverge. Over time as more comes out about people, the person who will make the best president is also the person who has the best chance of beating Donald Trump. It’s going to take standing up against Donald Trump, you bet. But it’s also going to take talking about our affirmative vision of the kind of America we want to be. Do we just want to say, hey look, just get rid of Donald Trump and we’ll go back to the way things were before? No. We have this opportunity, an amazing opportunity in 2020, to fix a lot of what’s been broken for a long time in this country.”

She also took aim at Michael Bloomberg (“It’s not personal, it’s just everything about him”), talked potential running mates, and more.
