... she must be still smoking ganga.

Ganga khoor Komola
Spartacus Booker
Pocahonta Elizabeth

Which one will be the perfect match for Donald Duck?
Kamala, Beto, Warren, Booker - all fell into this type of mistake so far.

Politicians are concerned about relating to people and coming across as authentic. In this pursuit, they think they need to minimize the difference between their public persona and private persona, because their public persona often projects them as aloof. They then mistakenly try to minimize this difference by sharing personal anecdotes or showing a snap of their personal lives.

To relate to black people, Hillary said she always keeps hot sauce in her bag.

To relate to the millennials, Hillary said she plays Pokémon.

Kamala said she used to listen to a genre of music at a time when it was not even in existence. Warren showed a clip where she is sharing beer with her husband. Booker showed getting his hair shaved. Beto showed getting a tooth job a dentist.

Result? It backfired.

To relate with people, you don't need to share your private life. You don't need to share personal anecdotes.

People know very well that your public persona is different from your private persona. This is true for each and everyone of us.

Therefore, if you want to come across as authentic and trustworthy to people - show two things. Passion about your policy, and past history/action/voting records. Your passion and your action speak louder than your personal anecdote and cute snapchat.

Bernie does not even comb his hair. Trump does not care about this grade three language. Both of them almost never share any personal anecdote. Yet, they relate to people seamlessly. Both of them have been transformative politicians (one positively and one negatively of course). Because what they talk about, exudes passion. And for Bernie, his past voting record and actions speak for themselves. Thus people easily relate to him because they can trust him without losing their sleep.

If Kamala, Warren, and other want to do well, they need to take note. If they keep sharing their personal lives, it will only give fodder to Trump to take cheap shots.
Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself- AJH| Don’t disrespect your life by living aimlessly – set goals and work hard to attain them.
