In a recent interview with The Boston Globe, Senator Elizabeth Warren went off on who seems to be one of her least favorite people, Republican candidate Donald Trump. Warren told the Globe:
‘Donald Trump clearly feels threatened by Secretary Clinton’s qualifications to be president so he’s attacking Hillary Clinton for being a woman. That’s what weak men do. It is an old story, and I don’t think the American voters will fall for it.’
Warren certainly seems to be correct in her assertion. Trump has made it clear that he is not a fan of strong women — look what he did when Megyn Kelly asked him a hard question during a debate — and the fact that Clinton is predicted by practically everyone to beat him should the race come down to the two of them, combined with the rest of her excellent work, certainly puts her in that category.
Trump has attacked Clinton throughout his campaign, most recently saying that she is playing the “woman card” and opining that, if she were a man, she would only get 5 percent of the vote.
During the interview, the Globe asked Warren how female candidates could fight back against accusations of using the gender card. She had the perfect response:
‘Just get out there and do your job every day.’
‘We need someone in the White House who isn’t afraid to fight for equal rights for women. That person is not Donald Trump.’
Warren ended the interview with a jab at Trump that was the perfect comedic followup to all the serious, very accurate things she shared. She told the Globe, “I hoped you were going to ask me if I thought he was a sexist.” She then answered her own question:
‘That’s like asking if he has bad hair. He wears the sexism out front for everyone to see.’
This isn’t the first time Warren has spoken out against Trump’s ridiculous actions. On an episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Warren publicly declared Trump a loser. She also called on all Americans to reject the billionaire on an episode of MSNBC’s All In.
