The war of words began on Friday afternoon when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) took to Twitter to crow about the GOP’s decision to pull their Obamacare replacement bill at the last minute.
Warren tweeted, “Today is a great day for the people of Massachusetts & people across the country who depend on the Affordable Care Act.”
She then added the comment: “But I’m not doing a touchdown dance today. Not when the GOP is still hell-bent on rigging the system for the rich & powerful.”

Observing the hypocrisy in Warren’s statement that Republicans are “hell-bent on rigging the system for the rich & powerful,” Donald Trump Jr. referred to financial disclosure forms which show that the senator’s net worth puts her in the top 1 percent of the country’s wealthiest Americans.
Warren and her colleagues often deride wealthy Americans for being too “rich and powerful” and not paying their “fair share,” even as she herself was paid a salary of $430,000 from Harvard in 2010 to teach a bankruptcy law class.
Trump Jr. pointed out these facts in response, tweeting, “Ha, you mean like someone who was paid almost $500,000.00 to “teach” one class a semester at Harvard?”
The hashtag he added, “#DoAsISayNotAsIDo,” succinctly underscored his point.
