Dear Commons Community,
Sen. Elizabeth Warren told the assembled Democrats of Massachusetts at the state’s party convention yesterday that Donald Trump is an “insecure moneygrubber” and a “scary, loud, outrageous, offensive, small failure and fraudster-in-chief”. As reported by Politico:
“Those are just a handful of the bombs Warren hurled Trump’s way in her Saturday afternoon address….During her speech, the Massachusetts senator attacked Trump on an array of issues from climate change to Wall Street to women. Warren spent significant time echoing recent attacks from Hillary Clinton against Trump University, the Republican presumptive nominee’s troubled real-estate seminar program.
‘It was like a used car dealership—except that’s not fair to used car dealerships,’ Warren said of Trump University. ‘His playbook said to look for people with problems; they make good targets.’
‘These were ordinary folks who were targeted because they had problems and Trump saw they were vulnerable and he could make a buck,’ she continued. ‘Here’s a man who builds a business to profit off other peoples’ pain. He wants to be Commander in Chief, but he’s only qualified to be Fraudster-in-Chief.’”
While Hillary Clinton gave Trump a resounding take-down earlier this week, Warren is the most effective voice the Democrats have against Trump. His responses to her have been lame.
