Elizabeth Warren Gets Real With Donald Trump About Whatever The "Specifics" Of His Plan Are
Over the last few months, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has gone after GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump in a fiery storm of tweets. The Senator has been using her Twitter account to make it clear how she really feels about Trump, and she hasn't been holding back. Elizabeth Warren's latest Twitter rant against Trump was her way of shouting #NeverTrump from the Twitterverse.
Warren began with a message about Trump's behavior and comments towards women: "We get it, [Donald Trump]: When a woman stands up to you, you’re going to call her a basket case. Hormonal. Ugly."
But Warren didn't stop there. She sent out seven more tweets that called out the presumptive nominee for his desire to "abolish the federal minimum wage," and his alleged sympathy for those with college debt while he scams students with Trump University. She even attacked his suggestion that the U.S. government should stop overseeing banks, while claiming to be tough on Wall Street.
Warren unapologetically unleashed on Trump in the same way that he does to everybody he dislikes. But this is not the first time in the last few months that the two have feuded on the social media platform. Trump responded to Warren's tweets by calling her "an ineffective Senator" and "Our Native American Senator, goofy Elizabeth Warren."
Trump clearly didn't learn not to accuse women of playing up gender, as he noted that Warren, "like her friend crooked Hillary," is now using the "woman's card." Yikes!
The two have been at odds on social media since early March, when Warren first released a statement to her Facebook page taking a harsh stand against the GOP front-runner: "Donald Trump is a bigger, uglier threat every day that goes by — and it's time for decent people everywhere — Republican, Democrat, Independent — to say No More Donald. There's no virtue in silence."
Now that Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Warren's messages have only become harsher and more direct as she even mentions Trump's Twitter handle when addressing his policies and comments. Warren has called him out for his racism, sexism, and xenophobia, and has made it very clear that she won't back down on her anti-Trump mission.
If nothing else, it's refreshing to see a female politician take to Twitter — a social media platform where people often participate in political discussion — to make it very clear that she stands against Trump and will do whatever she needs to keep him from the White House.
