Since announcing her candidacy, Brianna Wu has made at least 36 campaign promises, ranging from legalization of marijuana, not clapping for Trump during the State of the Union, climate change, patent trolls, and universal basic income. Although it is not unusual for candidates to make a variety of promises (such as Newt Gingrich's moonbase), the sheer number of promises Wu has made show she has the mentality of an 8th grader running for Class President.
