Elizabeth Warren Trolls Smear Campaign Against Her With Genius 'Cougar' Reference

Elizabeth Warren became the target of a bizarre smear campaign by a pair of pro-Trump conspiracy theorists on Thursday.

Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, who have a reputation for making outlandish claims, held a press conference in Arlington, Virginia, outside a garage with a sign reading "Elizabeth Warren: Cougar?"


The pair allege that 70-year-old Sen. Warren had a steamy extramarital affair with Kelvin Whelly, a former U.S. Marine in his mid-20s, who spoke at the press conference.

Whelly claims that the Warren hired him through Cowboys4Angels, a male escort site, with their first encounter taking place in Massachusetts on Aug. 8, 2018, and that the tryst involved bondage and threesomes with other women.

Cowboys4Angels' chief executive refuted Whelly's claims, however, telling Rolling Stone that "this guy never worked for me," and adding that Whelly is "not up to caliber to work at our agency."

Warren responded with the ultimate troll, playing off the "cougar" moniker by giving a shout out to her education at the University of Houston, where the mascot just so happens to be a cougar.
