It’s Monday, which means there’s still plenty of time for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to go on the record with a really dumb comment. So far, some of the day’s biggest stories about the GOP front-runner came from a horrific cover of “Stand By Me” and a trending hashtag — that is, not Trump himself. Never fear, for after Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) unleashed a string of tweets and a Facebook post criticizing the New York real estate mogul, the Donald we all know and love made an appearance.
As Politico notes, the fireworks began when Warren used her official personal accounts at Twitter and Facebook to warn potential voters about the dangers of a Trump nomination and presidency. The 66-year-old academic-cum-politician co-opted Trump’s surprisingly un-trademarked insult, “loser,” and let loose with her social media diatribe.
Direct insult aside, much of Warren’s criticism of the Republican candidate had to do with his repeated claims about being a successful and independent businessman. Because if there’s anything Trump’s many, many boasts have taught us, it’s that his father’s “small loan of a million dollars” is just one of several indications of his financial prowess.
Yet Warren wasn’t finished, as her attack on Trump continued for several more tweets warning against his divisiveness as a candidate, likely Republican nominee and possible next president.
