Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) isn’t about to go down without a fight in her ongoing battle with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
In an interview with WBZ Boston, Warren told political analyst Jon Keller she’s going to “punch back” against the “thin-skinned, racist bully.”
“He thinks somehow, if he calls me names, that I’m gonna shut up,” said Warren. “And I think he’s got plenty of evidence now that that’s just not gonna happen, because that’s the way you gotta deal with bullies. You just stand up and punch back.”
In the past, Trump has adopted former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA)’s attacks on Warren calling her “Pocahontas.” A pejorative name often used to insult Native Americans. Cherokee Chief Bill John Baker came out against the derogatory comments, saying that it is outright “racist” to use the name as a means of insult.
“Donald Trump is out there on so many fronts stirring up as much hate as he can,” Warren said. “It kind of fits with who Donald Trump has been from the very beginning.”
She wondered what Trump could possibly be thinking in his attacks on her. “Does he really think this is gonna work?” she asked, rhetorically.
