Elizabeth Warren Slams Donald Trump’s Lies About Being a Business Success


Fresh off of her delightful Twitter takedown listing all the ways she believes Donald Trump is a “loser,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren appeared on the Late Show on Wednesday to shred the Republican front-runner’s self-touted reputation as a successful businessman.

“The truth is that he inherited a fortune from his father, he kept it going by cheating and defrauding people, and then he takes his creditors through Chapter 11,” Warren told host Stephen Colbert.

“We have an economy that is in real trouble,” she added. “But when the economy is in this kind of trouble, calling on Donald Trump for help is like if your house is on fire, calling an arsonist to come help out.”

In contrast, the Massachusetts senator said the Democratic presidential candidates are discussing real issues that actually matter to Americans. 

“The Democrats are doing exactly what we should be doing,” she said. “We’re out talking about the issues that affect hardworking families: student loans, Social Security, more cops on Wall Street, trade.”

She concluded by encouraging Democrats to vote for whoever picks up the party’s nomination, whether it be Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton.
