11 of Liz Warren’s Best Trump Takedowns

This article was originally published at Revelist.

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.

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.

Then, she went off on the irony of his campaign messaging...

...and the scary truth about his supporters.

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.

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.

Somewhere, Megyn KellyCarly Fiorina, and Rosie O'Donnell are cheering.

Trump tried to fire back, but Warren could not be deterred.

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.

And deliver a truth bomb on dealing with this particular type of man-child.

She renewed her vow to keep Trump from the presidency.

And delivered this kick-ass warning.

Say that.
