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.
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.
