Elizabeth Warren Has the Donald Trump Takedown America Has Been Waiting For

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has come out swinging against Donald Trump in a viral Facebook post.

Warren used Trump’s favorite insult, “loser,” against him, describing his many failed business ventures, like Trump University, and bad debts dodged through bankruptcy. She also accused Trump of lashing out against women and people of color based on profound insecurity (tiny hands, anyone?) and consciousness of his own imperfections. But Warren said the fact that such a loser might become a winner in November should be a wake-up call to everyone.

“People have been underestimating his campaign for nearly a year — and it’s time to wake up,” Warren wrote.

Then, Sen. Warren described everything at stake in the 2016 election, outlining the two dramatically different directions the country could take based on the candidates currently running for president. Interestingly, many of Warren’s hopeful options for America’s future included parts of Bernie Sanders’ platform:

“Accountability for Wall Street. Healthcare for millions of Americans. The Supreme Court. Big corporations and billionaires paying their fair share of taxes. Expanded Social Security. Investments in infrastructure and medical research and jobs right here in America,” Warren wrote. “The chance to turn our back on the ugliness of hatred, sexism, racism and xenophobia. The chance to be a better people.”

But perhaps the most astonishing part of Warren’s post came at the end, when she not-so-subtly compared Donald Trump to Hitler, without mentioning the infamous German dictator’s name:

“Donald Trump stands ready to tear apart an America that was built on values like decency, community, and concern for our neighbors,” Sen. Warren stated. “Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers — and Trump is a serious threat.”

Let’s be honest – Donald Trump is a loser. Count all his failed businesses. See how he kept his father’s empire afloat by cheating people with scams like Trump University and by using strategic corporate bankruptcy (excuse me, bankruptcies) to skip out on debt. Listen to the experts who’ve concluded he’s so bad at business that he might have more money today if he’d put his entire inheritance into an index fund and just left it alone.

Trump seems to know he’s a loser. His embarrassing insecurities are on parade: petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, and flagrant narcissism. But just because Trump is a loser everywhere else doesn’t mean he’ll lose this election. People have been underestimating his campaign for nearly a year – and it’s time to wake up.

People talk about how “this is the most important election” in our lifetime every four years, and it gets stale. But consider what hangs in the balance. Affordable college. Accountability for Wall Street. Healthcare for millions of Americans. The Supreme Court. Big corporations and billionaires paying their fair share of taxes. Expanded Social Security. Investments in infrastructure and medical research and jobs right here in America. The chance to turn our back on the ugliness of hatred, sexism, racism and xenophobia. The chance to be a better people.

More than anyone we’ve seen before come within reach of the presidency, Donald Trump stands ready to tear apart an America that was built on values like decency, community, and concern for our neighbors. Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers – and Trump is a serious threat. The way I see it, it’s our job to make sure he ends this campaign every bit the loser that he started it.
