Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has proven herself to be quite an effective attack dog against presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. And based on some just-released excerpts of a speech she plans to deliver today, she’s about to deliver her most brutal indictment of both Trump and the GOP yet.
Per MSNBC, Warren will come out guns blazing to blast Trump’s attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the judge who is overseeing the Trump University lawsuit and whom Trump has attacked for being biased due to his “Mexican” heritage.
“Judge Curiel is one of countless American patriots who has spent decades quietly serving his country,” Warren plans to say. “Donald Trump is a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and serves nobody but himself. And that is just one of the many reasons why he will never be President of the United States.”
Warren will then tie Trump’s attack on Curiel with the way Republicans have attacked judges over the years who deliver rulings that they don’t like.
“Trump isn’t a different kind of candidate,” she will say. “He’s a Mitch McConnell kind of candidate. Exactly the kind of candidate you’d expect from a Republican Party whose ‘script’ for several years has been to execute a full-scale assault on the integrity of our courts.”
Warren will also say that the GOP doesn’t really have too much of a problem with Trump’s racism — rather, they just want him to learn how to use subtle dog whistles instead of fog horns.
“They just want Donald to quit being so vulgar and obvious about it,” Warren plans to say. “Donald Trump chose racism as his weapon, but his aim is exactly the same as the rest of the Republicans.”
All told, it sounds like this is going to be an absolutely devastating takedown. Warren will deliver her speech at an American Constitution Society conference in Washington on Thursday.
