11 of Liz Warren’s Best Trump Takedowns
In an election year that's slated to produce the most unpopular candidates in history, there is one shining light—Senator Elizabeth Warren.
The Massachusetts senator/women's advocate/campaign finance reformer/human goddess has been dishing up truth bombs all year long. Utilizing social media with the skill of a millennial San Fransisco start-up owner, Warren slammed GOP candidates repeatedly for their asinine comments.
Just this week, Warren delivered a speech at the Center for Popular Democracy's annual gala, perfectly skewering Donald Trump.
"Two weeks ago, he said that he was more than happy to dodge taxes because he doesn't want to throw his money, quote, 'down the drain,'" she said. "Nurses and teachers and dockworkers, they pay their fair share to keep Trump's businesses going ... Donald Trump thinks that supporting them is throwing money down the drain? Then I say we throw Donald Trump down the drain."
But that's not all: Warren's Twitter timeline is riddled with zingers about the presumptive Republican nominee. Below, check out our favorite one-liners from our favorite write-in candidate for 2016.
Warren started early, warning of a Trump presidency when most still thought it was impossible.
Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers – and @realDonaldTrump is a serious threat.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1458577344.0
Back in March, when Warren tweeted this, most publications were only floating the possibility of Trump winning the general election. But Warren was ready for battle.
She made it her personal goal to keep Trump out of the White House.
The way I see it, it’s our job to make sure @realDonaldTrump ends this campaign every bit the loser that he started it.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1458577373.0
Then, she went off on the irony of his campaign messaging...
Why is it that @realDonaldTrump can call himself the “unity” candidate while basing his campaign on racism, sexism, xenophobia & hatred?— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1458589470.0
...and the scary truth about his supporters.
There's more enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462330051.0
Remember when the leader of the KKK endorsed Donald Trump? Direct quote: "I hope he does everything we hope he will do.” Meanwhile, Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan had said he's "just not ready" to support The Donald.
She also took him to task for his shoddy policy proposals.
You care so much about struggling American workers, @realDonaldTrump, that you want to abolish the federal minimum wage?— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462989328.0
Despite acknowledging that it's nearly impossible to survive on $7.25 an hour—even saying, "I think people should get more"—Trump has zero plans to change the minimum wage. That kind of hypocrisy doesn't fly with Warren.
And she shut him down on his sexist garbage.
We get it, @realDonaldTrump: When a woman stands up to you, you’re going to call her a basket case. Hormonal. Ugly.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462989154.0
Trump tried to fire back, but Warren could not be deterred.
If you think recycling Scott Brown's hate-filled attacks on my family is going to shut me up, @realDonaldTrump, think again buddy. Weak.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462581864.0
Trump tried to stir up old drama over Warren's claims to a Native American heritage, but she wasn't having any of it.
In fact, she used it as a chance to expose Trump's true weakness.
.@realDonaldTrump spews insults and lies because he can’t have an honest conversation about his dangerous vision for America.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462581717.0
And deliver a truth bomb on dealing with this particular type of man-child.
But here's the thing. You can beat a bully -- not by tucking tail and running, but by holding your ground.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462581786.0
She renewed her vow to keep Trump from the presidency.
I'm going to fight my heart out to make sure @realDonaldTrump’s toxic stew of hatred & insecurity never reaches the White House.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462330314.0
And delivered this kick-ass warning.
.@realDonaldTrump: Your policies are dangerous. Your words are reckless. Your record is embarrassing. And your free ride is over.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1462989747.0
