#EndorseThis: Elizabeth Warren Says ‘Small, Insecure Money Grubber’ Trump Will Never Be President

Share
Elizabeth Warren

I remember watching, from the crowded bleachers in an auditorium in Lowell, Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren’s first debate for public office. Even then, she was the up-and-coming star in the Democratic Party, as fiery in her denunciations of Wall Street greed as she was well-versed in labyrinthian corporate bankruptcy law.

In 2008, Warren was appointed chair of the congressional oversight panel monitoring the bailout of capsized Wall Street firms, and in 2010 she began a long, hard fight for the Consumer Financial Protection bureau — a battle she won, though one she continues to wage though her successful bid for the Senate, notably won without super PAC help.

Given her history as a fierce fighter for the crucial minutiae in financial regulations, it’s no surprise that Warren has emerged as one of Donald Trump’s fiercest critics. Her Twitter wars with Twitter’s biggest bully make for good blog fodder, but her pointed attacks against Trump in speeches show how important Warren will be in fighting back against Trump’s pro-corporate, anti-regulatory con of a platform.

Elizabeth Warren knows a con when she sees one. And last night, she told the assembled crowd at the Center for Popular Democracy’s annual gala just why Trump could never lead the largest economy in the world.

        What a sad commentary our our Political system that we tolerate our elected officials to use their office as platform to demonize private citizens.Frankly I don’t care what personal thoughts are rattling around in Ms Warrens little brain.I do however care that my tax dollars are being wasted as she spends work time on personal observations.Do the damn job you were hired to do,or get out of office and we’ll vote someone in who will actually work for the people,that pay them.Final thoughts if Ms Warren actually thinks a proven thief and a liar such as Hillary would be good for the people,she’s way past her expiration date..May the door hit them both on their ass’es as they leave the public trough in which they have both fed themselves for much to long.

          Thief? Of what?

          Speaking of “proven liars,” Trump is likely the leading contender, far outdoing Hillary. And his GOP rivals didn’t do too badly in that competition.

          Just what has Ms. Clinton been “proven” to lie about? Please stick to truly proven lies about truly significant things.

    Although I like Ms. Warren, she must be deranged to support Hillary. Compared to Hillary, Trump looks really good. No comparison, Hillary is the money grubber, how much money has she pandered for the CF while SoS? Her position as SoS should have been her priority, not her convenience.

          You have to be mentally incompetent If you think Hillary actually used her SOS position to a monetary advantage. Only a total dolt would believe such a thing since if that was even remotely proveable, Faux News and the GOP Congress would have long since had that as another Hillary scandal BIG TIME.

            In March 2015, Reuters reported that the Clinton Foundation had broken its promise to publish all of its donors, as well as its promise to let the State Department review all of its donations from foreign governments.[71] In April 2015, the New York Times reported that when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the State Department had approved a deal to sell American uranium to Russian state-owned enterprise Uranium One who had donated to the Clinton Foundation, and that Clinton had broken her promise to publicly identify such donations.[72] About this news, the other media made a list of questionable items.[73] In a May 2015 book regarding the Foundation, author Peter Schweizer wrote, “We see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds.”[11] Clinton’s campaign has denied any impropriety, and called the book part of the Republicans’ coordinated attack strategy on Mrs. Clinton “twisting previously known facts into absurd conspiracy theories”.[10][74][75][76]

            After her January 2009 appointment as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton proposed hiring long-time Clinton friend and confidant Sidney Blumenthal as an advisor, however, Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, blocked Blumenthal’s appointment at the State Department.[77] Blumenthal was subsequently hired by the Clinton Foundation, earning a Foundation salary of about $10,000 a month, and after the 2011 uprising in Libya against Muammar Gaddafi, Blumenthal prepared, from public and other sources, about 25 memos which he sent as emails to Clinton in 2011 and 2012 with advice regarding Libyan matters, and sometimes promoting his business associates for contract work in Libya.[78][79]

      _Steve_ … Although I would agree with what you say about Hillary, Warren has not yet come out in support of Hillary. Trump is dangerous for so many reasons. He is a Reality Show actor and a huge supporter of big Corporations. As president, God forbid, Trump would never do anything to raise his own personal or corporate expenses if he could at all help it. His plans will hurt so many who are not super wealthy or a big corporation. Are you either of those? Oh, he lies and flip-flops so much, just as Hillary, and I do not see how people still believe anything he says. He says it like he wants you to believe it is, not how it really is.

      I wonder how many unwanted pregnancies he caused and how many abortions he paid for. Wow, he seems to belittle woman so much. No wonder he wants to hurt woman who had abortions but leave the men responsible alone.

      Trump is a bigot and he gets help from his kind in that from the KKK and David Duke. They wouldn’t support Trump if they didn’t see him as their kind. We do not need another hitler in the world and we very much do not need one as our president.

      I could go on and on but you seem to be liking him too much to look into anything that might tarnish him even when true. Trump is an embarrassment to the US and he would be so much more if he becomes president.

        I am not contesting anything you stated other than Warren does in fact support Hillary. As it were, it will be Hillary versus Trump in the General Election.. That’s almost a surety, about the only way that will not be is if Hillary gets indicted.
        Often, people do not support the candidate they vote for, they vote for the lessor of evils.
        In this election, Trump will be found the lessor of evils. I expect it will be a blowout, Trump will get more than 60% of the vote in the General Election.

          Trump will not win, and he certainly will not get a majority…he’s a racist and misogynist fear monger who has exposed the nasty underbelly of the GOP to the light of day. So, in that, he has done a service to the country, but he’s also a Hitler in the making.

      And what if she pandered for money from the CF?? She and Bill can’t touch it – it has to go for charitable causes.

      Name me a politician running for office today who can point to have accomplished even half of the following:

      From the SunSentinel editorial endorsing Hillary for president:

      Hillary Clinton is smart, steady and able to rebound quickly from defeat. When her attempt at health care reform failed during her husband’s first term, Clinton worked with senators from both parties – Democrat Ted Kennedy and Republican Orrin Hatch — to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which cut the uninsured rate of American children in half. More than eight million children have coverage because of the program.

      Critics who claim Clinton has no record of accomplishment despite her sparkling resume need to look closer at her record.

      She helped secure more than $21 billion for World Trade Center redevelopment. She led investigations into the health problems of 9/11 first responders. She promoted increased National Institutes of Health funding for research into cancer and asthma. She was the principal author of sanctions – particularly on oil imports to the European Union — that brought Iran to the negotiating table. She helped bring about a 2012 cease-fire between Hamas and Israel that headed off an Israeli invasion of Gaza. She named an “ambassador at large” for women’s rights.

      “Nearly every foreign policy victory of President Obama’s second term,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., “has Secretary Clinton’s fingerprints on it.”

      And when she was SOS, not only did you travel to more countries than any previous SOS while working to repair America’s reputation abroad – she was also working to foster improved treatment of women around the world:

      From the DailyKos:

      When Hillary Clinton stood up in Beijing to speak that truth, her hosts were not the only ones who didn’t necessarily want to hear it. Some of her husband’s advisors also were nervous about the speech, fearful of upsetting relations with China. But she faced down the opposition at home and abroad, and her words continue to hearten women around the world and have reverberated down the decades.

      She’s just been busy working, doing it, making those words “Women’s Rights are Human Rights” into something every leader in every country now knows is a linchpin of American policy. It’s just so much more than a rhetorical triumph. We’re talking about what happened in the real world, the institutional change that was a result of that stand she took.

      Everywhere she goes, she meets with the head of state and she meets with the women leaders of grassroots organizations in each country. This goes automatically on her schedule. As you’ve seen, when she went to Burma – our first government trip there in 40 years. She met with its dictator and then she met with Aung San Suu Kyi, the woman he kept under detention for 15 years, the leader of Burma’s pro-democracy movement.

    Senator Warren:No one can become a hero by going against Trump. It’s easy to attack this clown. Many republicans are even attacking him. But you stood on the sidelines between Bernie and a corporatist warmonger who cheated in the primary at every stage, and you did not take a brave stand on principals. Sorry, but your acting like a hero by attacking Trump is worthless.

      You Bernie Bros are so delusional it’s absolutely astounding!!

      11 reasons why Bernie Sanders lost this thing fair and square

      Bernie Sanders exceeded all primary season expectations and was en route to building something of a real movement. But rather than locking in those gains and settling in for a long-haul effort, he’s opted for a legacy-busting temper tantrum instead, heading out the (primary) door in a cloud of whining, conspiracy mongering, and blame casting. It’s a bizarre finale to what was undoubtedly an incredible run. So here are some observations, not because it matters—he’s lost—but because his claims of victimhood are absolute bullshit and need to be corrected.

      1. If you plan for a coup, you’ve already lost

    Millions of trash words in these comments and not ONE about why Hillary would be so great for America. Not even one. Thats because anti-Trump people only see that Trump is in their way of abolishing the Constitution, in the way of Socialist agendas, in the way of their hopes for the defeat of Capitalism. But you cannot name ONE accomplishment in Hillarys 40 year career, or bernies 35 years as Senator. 75 years between them, not one single accomplishment. If im wrong, just name eight accomplishments of Hillary. Go ahead.
