Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) just put out a new book titled, “This Fight is Our Fight,” which ends just after Trump’s inauguration with the weekend’s Women’s Marches. She spoke about the inauguration on Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” saying she attended it for a motivational reason.
“I went to Trump’s inauguration. I watched. I wanted to see it. I wanted it burned in my eyes,” Warren recalled, adding, “My view on this was if there was ever going to be a moment where I was like, ‘Oh I’m too tired to get up,’ all I had to do is close my eyes and it’s like, ‘Oh god, I’m up. I’m ready. I’m back in the fight.’”
In a speech on Friday, Trump noted that Warren could possibly run for president in 2020, and in reference to her history of falsely claiming that she’s a native American, he called her Pocahontas.
Warren made a bizarre joke during an event in Chicago Saturday, April 22, about Republicans trying to repeal Obamacare. “God, what planet do they live on?” she asked rhetorically before stating, “I hope they leave their bodies to science. I would like to cut them open.”
Apparently concerned that “a lot of people” think that the Republican plan was “not brutal enough for a big chunk of the Republican party,” Warren brought out the same liberal argument which always asserts that the Republicans want to benefit the wealthy at the expense of others.
According to Warren, if passed, the American Health Care Act, would be “knocking 24 million people off health insurance and raising the costs for middle-class families so that you could produce a tax break for a handful of millionaires and billionaires.”
Warren herself is a millionaire.
