Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a new advocate on the campaign trail — and Donald Trump Jr. says it’s proof that she is struggling to resonate with her base.

Warren, who declared her intention to seek the 2020 Democratic nomination last month, has been taking her dog Bailey with her to campaign stops — he even has his own “selfie” line at live events. (RELATED: Elizabeth Warren’s ‘No PAC-Money’ Pledge Has A Built In Escape Hatch)

Politico published an article devoted to Bailey’s campaign efforts on Sunday titled “Warren’s top surrogate is big on social media and has four legs” — and it wasn’t long before a few critics weighed in on the topic.

Some saw the story as proof that media outlets are harder on Republicans than Democrats.

Trump Jr. took things a little further, suggesting that Warren’s use of the dog “to humanize her” was indicative of a campaign struggling to resonate with the voters.

While Warren doesn’t appear to have created the account herself, there is an account dedicated to Bailey Warren (@firstdogwarren) that routinely attacks President Donald Trump and promotes policies supported by the Massachusetts Senator. Warren herself shares Instagram posts from the campaign trail using a camera that shows Bailey’s perspective.
