Elizabeth Warren Describes Trump to a "T"

Sure wish Elizabeth or Bernie could be our Presidential candidate instead of Hillary:


from ABC News:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is preparing to launch her latest attack on Donald Trump over his comments about the judge overseeing the fraud case against Trump University, calling the presumptive GOP presidential nominee a "loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud," according to advance excerpts obtained by ABC News of a speech she will deliver at the American Constitution Society's National Convention in Washington, D.C., Thursday night.

"Donald Trump is a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and serves nobody but himself," Warren is set to say at the event, where she will share the stage with Vice President Joe Biden.

"Judge [Gonzalo] Curiel has survived far worse than Donald Trump. He has survived actual assassination attempts. He'll have no problem surviving Trump's nasty temper tantrums," Warren will say.

The Massachusetts senator also plans to tie Trump directly to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan by making the case that Trump is only taking a page from their playbooks.

"Trump isn't a different kind of candidate. He's a Mitch McConnell kind of candidate. Exactly the kind of candidate you'd expect from a Republican Party whose 'script' for several years has been to execute a full-scale assault on the integrity of our courts," Warren will say, in accusing McConnell of blocking judicial nominations.

"Trump is also House Speaker Paul Ryan's kind of candidate," Warren will say. "Paul Ryan condemned Trump's campaign for its attacks on Judge Curiel's integrity. Great. Where's Paul Ryan's condemnation of the blockade, the intimidation, the smears, and the slime against the integrity of qualified judicial nominees and Judge Garland?"

"Donald Trump chose racism as his weapon, but his aim is exactly the same as the rest of the Republicans: Pound the courts into submission to the rich and powerful," Warren will say.

Warren's planned remarks are only the latest addition to the senator's many rants against Trump. She has been outspoken in her criticism of the presumptive Republican nominee in recent months, often using Twitter to unleash social media rants against Trump on several occasions.

Trump has similarly used Twitter to bash Warren, calling her "goofy Elizabeth Warren" and attempting to mock her Native American heritage by calling her "Pocahontas."
