Elizabeth Warren Absolutely Shreds ‘Leader of GOP’ Donald Trump in Epic Rant

While Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders get most of the attention nowadays as it relates to the Democratic party, Sen. Elizabeth Warren is still probably the most popular person in the entire party. I fully believe had she run for president she would have ran away with the nomination – and I don’t think it would have even been close.

Sorry Hillary and Bernie folks, that’s just the truth.

But she didn’t, which means we’re all still privileged to have her as a leading voice in the Senate where I am certain she will continue her build on her already impressive legacy of bringing about sweeping changes to the Democratic party and this country.

Well, on Tuesday night shortly after Donald Trump was declared the winner in Indiana and Ted Cruz officially ended his campaign, Warren absolutely went off on Trump, the Republican party and just how pathetic it is that he’s going to be their presidential nominee.

Here’s what she posted on Facebook:

Donald Trump is now the leader of the Republican Party. It’s real – he is one step away from the White House. Here’s what else is real:

Trump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia. There’s more enthusiasm for him among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.
He incites supporters to violence, praises Putin, and, according to a columnist who recently interviewed him, is “cool with being called an authoritarian” and doesn’t mind associations with history’s worst dictators.

He attacks veterans like John McCain who were captured and puts our servicemembers at risk by cheerleading illegal torture. In a world with ISIS militants and leaders like North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un conducting nuclear tests, he surrounds himself with a foreign policy team that has been called a “collection of charlatans,” and puts out contradictory and nonsensical national security ideas one expert recently called “incoherent” and “truly bizarre.”

What happens next will test the character for all of us – Republican, Democrat, and Independent. It will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man’s narcissism and divisiveness. I know which side I’m on, and I’m going to fight my heart out to make sure Donald Trump’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.

I love this woman.

Her rant was short, direct and absolutely on-point.

It’s great that she decided to focus on what an absolute joke it is that someone like Donald Trump has managed to become the “face” of one of our country’s two major political parties. It was awesome how she went after everything from the fact that the KKK has openly embraced him, to his praise of Putin, all the way to the fact that he’s insecure and surrounds himself with absolute fools who are pretending to act as if they’re experts on certain subjects.

Though I think a lot of Democrats are elated with the fact that Trump is going to be the GOP candidate. Nothing is a “sure thing,” but it’s never a good sign when members of your own party are seemingly rooting for you to lose just so you don’t destroy their party as president.

After reading Elizabeth Warren’s amazing summary of Donald Trump being the Republican nominee for president, all I can say is one thing: I’m damn glad she’s on our side.

      Fucking rube. Go troll on a Faux Snooze site.

  • My thought of the day: I don’t know how anyone can rationalize voting for Donald Trump; must be the same folks that root for the villains in Disney films. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    I didn’t know that Elizabeth Warren (sounds more like Pilgrim name than an Indian name) was such a hawk. Here she is defending the integrity of the number 1 warmonger in the Senate. She even seems to prefer the resurgent cold war Hillary and Obama have stirred up to Trump’s detente with Putin. Her comments reeked of being a “toxic stew of hatred and insecurity”. Maybe her tribe should rename her “Bitter Warhawk”

      Wow. More stupid from another troll. So anyone who is part Native American should have an “Indian” name? You can’t even entertain the thought of the possibility that somewhere along the bloodline, an anglo male married a Native American woman and she took on his anglo name? And the number 1 warmonger in the Senate is John McShame. Warren isn’t defending him at all. Try pulling your head out of your ass.

        “Harvard Law School hired its first woman of color, Elizabeth Warren, in 1995.” -Fordham Law Journal 1995

        “Warren, did not meet the two part test under Harvard and EEOC definitions of Native American, a definition which likely was on the page when she checked the box. That definition requires both actual Native American ancestry and cultural identification through tribal affiliation or comunity recognition.” “Detailed genealogical investigation by a group of Cherokee genealogists showed that Warren had no Cherokee or other Native American ancestry.” -(from article)Elizabeth Warren Native American / Cherokee Controversy

        Elizabeth Warren, “woman of color”, in a proven liar unless you can top the Cherokee genealogists’ research. Go ahead and prove how smart you are.

        Added: An ironic touch – “Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.” – genealogist Michael Patrick Leahy

    Democrats are running scared.

    • 1Smith1

      Um, no. No they’re not. You couldn’t be more wrong. tRump is ignorant and stupid. He doesn’t know history. He doesn’t know how the U.S. Government works. He doesn’t understand the U.S. Constitution. He knows he shouldn’t be the GOPig’s nominee but he’s too arrogant and stupid to admit it. Hell, the dumbshit doesn’t even know simple math. Democrats are more amazed at the stupidity of the idiots who support ignorant tRump.

      How so?
