Elizabeth Warren Goes Off On ‘Loser’ Trump In a Twitter War He Didn’t Even Start This Time

Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 3.59.39 PMElizabeth Warren, a senator from Massachusetts, has always been outspoken and determined. She’s had her plate full lately as she’s taken on the Republican establishment in the Senate, routinely lambasting their refusal to vote on President Barack Obama‘s Supreme Court nominee.

Warren has Native American lineage, but has never claimed to identify as Native American. That hasn’t prevented her from getting roasted for what some people perceive as her attempts to use her heritage as an advantage.

Her tweets, then, were a response to Trump’s tweets. For what it’s worth, they’ve continued as I have been writing this. Here are a few more, hot off the presses of Warren’s phone or her intern’s laptop:

Trump is no stranger to Twitter drama, so maybe we will see some response by the end of the day.
