‘Where Has Senator Kelly Ayotte Been?’: Warren Slams Senator for Not Speaking Against Trump
During a campaign stop to support Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, Massachusetts’ Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren took aim at Kelly Ayotte. Ayotte is running for reelection in the state and has come under fire for, among other things, calling Donald Trump a good role model for kids and then walking that right back after it sparked outrage. She recently pulled her support from Trump, but that isn’t good enough for Warren.
“For more than a year, Donald Trump has made headlines almost every day and where has Senator Kelly Ayotte been?” she asked the crowd assembled in Manchester. “Donald Trump called Latinos rapists and murderers. Kelly stuck with him. Trump called African-Americans thugs and Kelly stuck with him. Trump attacked a Gold Star family and Kelly stuck with him. Trump compared himself to dictators and praised Vladimir Putin and Kelly stuck with him. Trump even attacked Kelly Ayotte and called her weak and Kelly stuck with him.”
The crowd cheered and laughed throughout her speech, which ended with her calling on them to vote in Ayotte’s opponent, Governor Maggie Hassan because “Donald Trump is right: Kelly is weak.”
“I love being here with smart, tough women,” she cheered, shouting out Clinton and Hassan by name again.
