Elizabeth Warren Drops Truth Bomb on Trump: Here's How Things Are Really 'Rigged'

Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren launched another attack on Donald Trump in Denver, Colorado during a campaign speech for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Sunday. In perhaps her most effective takedown of the GOP nominee yet, Warren issued a scathing response to Trump's pathetic claims of the election being stolen from him due to a "rigged" system. 

"Donald Trump has been talking a big game," Warren announced. "He's been talking about how the game is rigged. Well, I want to say this. He's right. The game is rigged. It's rigged for the Donald Trumps and billionaires of the world, and we're here to fight back!" 

Warren then mocked "big brave Donald Trump" for being "too chicken" to release his tax records.

The crowd booed and Warren clucked.

Warren also echoed Michelle Obama's sentiment regarding Trump's misogynist remarks and actual interractions with women in her impassioned speech. 

"I never in my life thought that we would see a nominee for the president of the United States who calls women 'fat pigs' and 'bimbos,' Warren said.

"I never thought we would see a nominee for president who would brag about sexually assaulting women... who would attack his victims who came forward saying they were too ugly to have been the objects of his sexual assault," she continued. 

While Warren frequently blasts Donald Trump, the release of the 2005 Hollywood Access tape has made her more enraged than ever at the GOP nominee. 

"Donald Trump's words don't just make me sick anymore, they make me furious," Warren said.
