Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) took a turn on “The View” Wednesday. Along with vocal Trump critic and comedian Joy Behar, she compared the President of the United States Donald Trump to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Warren ticked off a list of what she believes are bad moves by the president in his first 90 days. She accused the president of making it easier for employers to steal employees wages, making it easier for companies to hide it if they kill or maim employees and making it easier for companies to cheat pensioners.
She also claimed that through “Trumpcare,” he wanted to “knock 24 million people off their healthcare coverage, raise the cost for a lot of middle class families so that we can produce a tax cut for a handful of millionaires and billionaires.” She said Trump is not working for middle class families or the working poor.
Behar asked Warren why the middle class still supports Trump. Warren says that Trump distracts the public and that America is not focusing on what Trump actually does.
After discussing what Warren might have done to better help Hillary Clinton clinch the presidency and how to save the Democratic party, host Whoopie Goldberg questioned Warren about how to appeal to “women on the other side” to remove ideology from the equation and get them to focus on “the people”.
Warren responded that there are women only dinners for senators where they can talk without men. She says they are able to talk about values and support of each other during the dinners. She also said there needs to be more women in the Senate.
Goldberg calls North Korean leader Kim Jong-un “Yum Yum,” then asks Warren what should be happening with North Korea.
Warren begins her answer by saying, “We have an unstable man who has nuclear weapons…”
Behar interrupted with, “You’re talking about Trump now.” Then she continued, “about to deal with an unstable man who has nuclear weapons, what could possibly go wrong?”
