Hillary Clinton Is Onstage With Elizabeth Warren

by Jenny Hollander

On Monday, jubilant after the Supreme Court's women's rights victory and basking in the glow of appearing onstage with Elizabeth Warren for the first time in this campaign, Hillary Clinton offered up what may be a "metal" hand symbol or an "I love you" to the Cincinnati crowd of supporters in sign language. Maybe a bit of both? Well, anyway, Whether Clinton was expressing just how rad SCOTUS' verdict was — thank you Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ye goddess — or merely expressing that she and Warren loved to the crowd, particularly those who are hard of hearing, it's a cool moment.

On Donald Trump, the two stood united. Warren called him "a small, insecure money-grubber who fights for no one but himself," adding of Clinton's opponent, "What kind of a man? ... A nasty man who will never become president of the United States, because Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States."

Earlier that day, Clinton and Warren had celebrated the Supreme Court's ruling, which effectively threw out Texas' harsh abortion law, HB2. "SCOTUS's decision is a victory for women in Texas and across America. Safe abortion should be a right—not just on paper, but in reality. -H," Clinton tweeted. "This fight isn't over: The next president has to protect women's health. Women won't be "punished" for exercising their basic rights."

Minutes later, Clinton and Warren took the stage, with Warren opening with a full-throated evisceration of Trump. "You just saw why she is so terrific, so formidable," Clinton said when she had finished. "Because she tells it like it is."

Warren is tipped to be one of Clinton's potential running mates, although political observers have noted that the chances of Warren actually being Clinton's veep pick is unlikely.

Clinton didn't hold back on Trump, noting of his infamous Brexit tweet, "He tried to turn a global economic challenge into an infomercial."
