Elizabeth Warren Detests Donald Trump & She Isn't Holding Back About It
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night. She discussed the Democratic presidential race and shared some of the important work she's doing in the Senate for working families. But on The Late Show, Warren made another jab at Donald Trump, after first making some strong statements about the GOP front-runner a few weeks back.
On March 14, she posted a statement to her Facebook page calling on politicians regardless of their affiliation to stop Trump. The statement read, "it’s time for decent people everywhere – Republican, Democrat, Independent – to say No More Donald." A week later, she ripped into Trump on Twitter in a series of tweets, calling Trump a loser because of failed businesses and for "scamming" people with businesses, which Trump adamantly denies. She also called him out for his "attacks on women, cheap racism, flagrant narcissism."
Colbert told Warren how she and Trump are maybe not so different, suggesting that they both want caps on Wall Street. He said, "Both of you feel the guys on Wall Street are getting away with things they shouldn't ... Isn't there some unity there between you and Donald Trump?" She responded, "Let's be real clear. Donald Trump is looking out for exactly one guy, and that guy's name is Donald Trump."
Warren noted that, "When the economy is in this kind of trouble, calling on Donald Trump for help is like, if your house is on fire, calling an arsonist to come help out." Colbert asked the hard questions though. He said, "[Trump] says he's won his whole life. He wins, wins, wins. But now he wants to win for America, and we're going to win so much we're going to get tired of winning. Why don't you want us to win?"
Warren responded by speaking of the fortune Trump inherited from his father, claiming that he kept it going by "cheating and defrauding people." Colbert warned Warren though before she could continue, "He's never broken the law ... We don't know, listen we don't know. Be careful, remember rubber, glue, he's got a lawyer, and he'll sue."
The Massachusetts senator left viewers with some important words. She said, "He started out rich. He cheated his way to getting richer. That is not going to build an America for hard-working people. He's going to leave them in the dirt, like he's left everyone else."
Keep preaching, Warren!
