In politics and running for office, so much of it is actually staged.
Crafting a particular public persona of candidate running for office is all about staging things in order to make the public feel the way a campaign wants them to feel. It sounds bad but every campaign does it.
But it really only becomes a problem when things are so obviously staged that even Stevie Wonder would be able to see through it.
The Democrats currently running for office, from Gillibrand, Harris, Sanders and de Blasio, have all had their fair share of obviously staged, cringeworthy moments.
Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren may have just had the worst, most staged moment of the entire campaign up until this point.
Harris and Warren “accidentally” bumped into one another out on the campaign trail.
