Elizabeth Warren: "Donald Trump is a small insecure money-grubber ..."


"... who cares about nobody but himself."







Elizabeth Warren slams 'small, insecure' Donald Trump in most fiery takedown yet
Business Insider By Maxwell Tani

In a speech at the Center for Popular Democracy's annual gala in Washington, Warren slammed the presumptive Republican presidential nominee over comments from 2006, when Trump said he was "excited" for a potential market downturn so he could buy real estate at a lower cost.

"What kind of a man roots for people to get thrown out of their house?" the Democratic senator from Massachusetts said. "What kind of a man roots for people to get thrown out of their jobs?"

She continued:

To root for people to lose their pensions, to root for two little girls in Clark County Nevada to end up living out of a van what kind of a man does that? I'll tell you exactly what kind of a man does that. It's a man who cares only about himself. A small, insecure money-grubber who doesn't care who gets hurt as long as he makes a profit.

Warren also criticized Trump's promise to repeal the financial regulations implemented under the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill, questioning whether the real-estate magnate "could even name three things about Dodd-Frank."

"Donald Trump is worried about poor little Wall Street," Warren said. "Let me find the world's smallest violin to play a sad, sad, song."

4. I am more hopeful now

with her taking on this role.

You can't beat Trump by 1) responding to him 2) being the primary candidate and getting down to his level.

Warren is the PERFECT foil for him, she is tough, smart, and obviously likes getting under his skin. And, him being who he is, he won't just take it, particularly from a woman.

But, Warren can't be the only person who goes directly at him.

The more people of a higher level who can directly engage him, the more he has to respond to THEM vs his driving the discussion, and the more it takes his focus off the actual candidate, and allows the candidate room to start to drive the discussion and not get caught up into his Jersey Shore bullshit.
