Talk about irony. Sales of Sen. Elizabeth Warren's new "Billionaire Tears" mug are going to benefit a billionaire financially.
The mug is on sale for $25. It was introduced by Warren's presidential campaign on Wednesday. It is being sold by Shopify, which happens to have a founder and CEO who is worth over $2 billion.
There’s literally nothing genuine about Fauxcahontas.

Shopify Founder and CEO Tobias Lutke is worth around $2.8 billion.
“Savor a warm, slightly salty beverage of your choice in this union-made mug as you contemplate all the good a wealth tax could do: universal healthcare, student debt cancellation, universal free college, and more,” it says on the product page for the mug.

The left will say anything to get a vote, even if makes no sense. This is peak hypocrisy and at this point, it's not even surprising.
