Warren Drops Trump Truth Bomb: Racist Alt Right Support Feeds His ‘Dark And Ugly Soul’ (VIDEO)
Hitting the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton on Saturday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) clobbered Donald Trump and the Republican Party with some unpleasant truths. Speaking in Ohio, a key battleground state, she referred to Trump’s not-so-thinly veiled suggestions that harm may come to Hillary Clinton.
Warren Truth Bombs Trump
“Donald Trump has repeatedly invited his supporters to commit a horrific act of violence against his opponent, against another human being. I just want you to think for a minute — what kind of a man does that?” she asked while speaking at Ohio State University. “A bully, a twisted bully who can’t fight his own fight, who can’t win a fair fight, who will never be a president of the United States, that’s who.”
Then she really went for the jugular:
“Let’s face it: Trump has more support from the Aryan Nation and the KKK than he does from the leaders of his own party,” she said.
Warren harangued Trump for launching “one racist attack after another” against President Obama, adding that Trump supported the “birther” movement for years — all the way up until Friday, when he finally conceded that Obama is indeed a U.S. citizen.
“Donald Trump launched one racist attack after another on President Obama, and only when his handlers tied him down and forced him, did he grudgingly admit that the man was born in the United States of America,” Warren said.
She reminded her audience that Trump — the new darling of the Alt-right — is not fit to serve as Commander-in-Chief and blasted him for his ties to Vladimir Putin, his growing list of business scandals, including Trump University.
“What kind of a man does that? A man with a dark and ugly soul. A man who will never be a president of the United States,” she said.
Warren’s scathing remarks fit neatly with Clinton’s earlier comments that “half” of Trump’s supporters are “deplorable.
As Clinton noted:
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic. You name it.”
The latest polls show that Clinton’s supporters are less enthusiastic than Trump’s, and Warren is trying to shore up more support for the Democratic presidential nominee.
Referring to some of her own struggles in running for office, Warren noted just how tough the campaign trail can be:
“At this point in my election, a poll came out that showed me down four points,” she told the crowd. “Now what do you do at that point? Well, you can whimper. You can whine. Or you can fight back. Me, I’m fighting back in this race. How about you?”
I hope Elizabeth Warren keeps fighting for years to come.
