Elizabeth Warren Rips Trump For Making ‘Creepy Physical Threats’: ‘May Soothe His Ego – But it Won’t Work’


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) fired back at President Donald Trump after he said he wanted to have her DNA tested personally.

Monday evening on Twitter, the Massachusetts Senator bashed the President for making “creepy physical threats” towards her.

“We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy physical threats about me, right?” Warren wrote. “He’s scared. He’s trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself. It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work.”

Speaking with reporters in Georgia — where he was getting briefed on the damage caused by Hurricane Michael — Trump commented on the hypothetical $1 million dollar proposal he made, conditional upon Warren winning the 2020 nomination for President, if she was willing to take a DNA test.

“You mean, if she gets the nomination, in a debate, where I was gonna have her tested?” Trump said. “I’ll only do it if I can test her personally, okay? That will not be something I enjoy doing either.”

Warren released her DNA test results earlier Monday — which revealed that she is somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.
