That’s at least according to Black, who wrote on Twitter that she had a chat with the Democratic presidential candidate had called her up — making good on a weekend tweet from Ms Warren offering to help.
“Guess who’s crying and shaking and just talked to Elizabeth Warren on the phone?!?!? We have a plan to get my mom grand kids, it’s very comprehensive, and it does involve raising taxes on billionaires,” Black wrote on Twitter, referencing Ms Warren’s campaign mantra that she has a “plan for that”.
The phone call — which the Warren campaign confirmed took place to The Independent — follows after Black jokingly tweeted on Sunday about the dozens of policy proposals Ms Warren has released, and that have come to largely define her campaign.
“Do you think Elizabeth Warren has a plan to fix my love life,” Black tweeted then.
Ms Warren’s account replied: “DM me and let’s figure this out.”
Ms Warrens’ campaign provided no details of what the phone call included. But Black, a comedian who has worked on Samantha Bee‘s “Full Frontal” television show, provided some context piecemeal in her replies.
“I’m literally shaking,” she wrote in response to one user.
It’s “like you’re talking to someone super smart, who actually cares,” she wrote in response to another user, who asked how it feels to speak with Ms Warren. “It was amazing.”
Finally, a hint at the advice: She said I’ve [got to] focus on what I’ve got going for me… that’s when I started crying LOL”.
