Warren Uses Social Media to Call Trump a “Loser”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is amassing more $1 million per month in the fundraising for her 2018 re-election bid

Four days after she repeated refused to find fault with Hillary Clinton’s decision not to release the transcripts of her Wall Street speeches, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) used her Facebook page and Twitter feed to let loose with a torrent of name-calling aimed at Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Repeatedly calling Trump a “loser,” Warren—or whichever person authored the Facebook posting, as it is unclear whether the senator actually posts messages online—appeared to hit many of the talking points used by Trump’s foes in previous GOP debates.

“Let’s be honest – Donald Trump is a loser,” her Facebook message stated. “Count all his failed businesses. See how he kept his father’s empire afloat by cheating people with scams like Trump University and by using strategic corporate bankruptcy (excuse me, bankruptcies) to skip out on debt. Listen to the experts who’ve concluded he’s so bad at business that he might have more money today if he’d put his entire inheritance into an index fund and just left it alone.”

Warren repeated some of her Facebook comments on Twitter, adding a post-script with a typo that read, “We cannot elect wannabe tyrants to the White House. Not now, not ever. It’s up to all of us to stop @realDonaldTrump.”

Warren, who is the only female Democratic senator not to endorse Hillary Clinton, has gained notoriety over the years for hostile comments that insisted mortgage lenders were solely responsible for the 2008 economic crash. While she has been something of an equal opportunity offender by criticizing the Obama Administration for employing a surplus amount of former Citigroup executives, her latest comments are the most vituperative attacks against any single person.

Trump, as of this writing, did not acknowledge Warren’s comments on social media. However, in a news conference, he responded to a question on Warren by remarking, “Who is that, the Indian? You mean the Indian?”—a reference to Warren’s controversial efforts to gain academic and employment advantage by claiming Native-American heritage, even though she is not an official member of any recognized tribal nation.
