Elizabeth Warren unleashes another Twitter barrage at The Donald and of course it's awesome.

Currently Trump is a little busy throwing rocks at Hillary over the fact that he called him unqualified to be President.

But I'm sure when he finishes that tantrum he will again focus on Warren and once again fail to make a dent.

So looking forward to Elizabeth Warren joining the Democratic ticket in 2016. (Okay just don't bother saying anything to ruin it for me.)

P.S. Warren has already said she will work to bring all sides together after these last primaries, what better way to do that than to run alongside Hillary?

    VP would be a step down for Warren.

    1. Anonymous10:07 PM

      Yes, but it's time for her to think of the greater good. We all have to make sacrifices.

    2. Anonymous12:39 PM

      10:07, it would be a sacrifice to gag, bind, and shackle her if she were the VP.

  2. Anonymous2:14 PM

    Elizabeth, Joe Biden and both of the Obama's will unload on Trump after the convention chooses Hillary. Hopefully Bernie will join them, too.

    You’re Gonna Want To Hear Trump Saying He Wanted Blacks Vs. Whites On ‘The Apprentice’ (AUDIO)

    ...For instance, back in 2005 while on Howard Stern’s radio program, Trump brought up the fact that he put thought into doing a season of The Apprentice that would feature black people versus white people. Fortunately, NBC knew that idea wasn’t going to fly.

    Trump told Stern and his co-host Robin Quivers:

    “On ‘The Apprentice’ there was a concept, okay, thrown out by some person, nine blacks against nine whites. And it would be nine blacks against nine whites, all highly educated, very smart, strong, beautiful. Do you like it? Do you like it, Robin?”

    Quivers responded:

    “I think you’re gonna have a riot.”

    But Trump being Trump, said:

    “It would be the highest-rated show on television.”

    Then when Stern asked:

    “Very dark blacks, or light-skinned blacks?”

    Trump responded with, “assortment… against whites.”

    Donald Trump Humiliates Chris Christie AGAIN And It’s Worse Than Ever Before (VIDEO)

    ...Trump had gone on a rant about Nabisco moving factories to Mexico, and mentioned that he was done eating Oreos. Desperately searching for a punchline, Trump looked at Christie, pointed his little index finger at him and said:

    “Neither is Chris! You’re not eating Oreos anymore!”

    The crowd erupted into awkward laughter and Trump tried to ‘soften the blow’ by repeating the joke and bringing himself into the equation.

    “No more Oreos, for either of us, Chris! Don’t feel bad! For either of us!”

    You can watch this embarrassing moment unfold moment below:

      Ever since Gov. Chris Christie dropped out of the Republican presidential race and backed Donald Trump, he has taken quite a beating while helping the man he calls “Mr. Trump” try to win the White House.

      Now, after months of kowtowing to Trump, the roles were reversed — if only for a few hours.

    2. Anonymous4:53 PM

      Does everyone else notice how people only call Donald Trump, 'Mr.' Trump? I have a hunch he expects and demands it.

      I never see him called or referred to by his first name which is what the ordinary folks in America prefer.

      He is too fucking uppity for me...feeds in w/his ego though, doesn't it? Cannot imagine having to walk in his shoes OR be someone that is in his company each day! I'd be ready for the nut house within an hour, I'm sure!

    Hillary’s Message To Former Miss Universe Called ‘Miss Piggy’ By Trump Is PERFECT (TWEET)

    Miss Universe 1996 Alicia Machado is now an American citizen and will be voting for the first time this November, and it’s become apparent who she’ll likely be voting for, and it’s not Donald Trump.

    You see, after Machado won her crown she gained a little bit of weight, which apparently did not please Trump, who is the man behind the pageant. He even called her “Miss Piggy” and said that she must be “somebody that likes to eat.” He then forced her to work out and try to lose weight.

    When asked if she’d vote for Trump this fall, all Machado could do was laugh.

    When Hillary Clinton heard about the insults and the response to if Machado would vote for Trump, she tweeted out:

    “Congratulations on becoming a U.S. citizen, Alicia. Enjoy casting that vote.”

    1. Anonymous2:30 PM

      I remember when that happened and I swear back then she said she had gained 15 pounds. She looked fine.

      Trump, on the other hand...yikes. he has gained weight this year. I remember when he said a while back that he had lost 15 pounds. He never looked it then and he doesn't look it now. How, placing so much importance on weight, can he not just put in the minimum of effort to lose some weight?

    2. Anonymous4:48 PM

      I have always found Trump to be very unattractive physically. He's obese now - looks as though he never works out, has double chins, etc.

      And, he has the 'tiny' balls to call out women on their weight? He needs one healthy punch in his fat face by any one of these women!

      Too bad he hasn't realized that there can be outstanding women that are not sex kittens! His emphasis has always been on the physical attractiveness of a woman! He wants 'sex' on his arm - as in coming down the escalator w/his current wife that we see run on cable TV constantly!

      I feel for the women he's had in his life throughout the years, to include his ex wives and the current one.

      Let's include his daughters too. It's so apparent he has a 'trophy' daughter - Ivanka! He seems to have more interest in and affection for her than any of his other offspring. It's not natural and viewing him w/her makes me sick to my stomach!

    3. Anonymous7:33 PM

      I don't feel for his wives. They married him for one reason, and God knows it wasn't his physical attractiveness.

      Or intellect either, although having listened to them, an intellectual companion is NOT on their list for a mate.

    Hillary's general election mobilization challenge is much broader than Bernie voters

    Democrats are currently panicking over whether Hillary Clinton will be able to reach out and appeal to Bernie Sanders's supporters in the general election or whether Sanders will be "willing to harm" Clinton's prospects in order to advance his own agenda.

    History suggests there's probably no need to worry about this. Candidates always fight hard until they stop fighting — look at what Clinton herself was doing in mid-May 2008 — and when Sanders does stop fighting he'll have strong incentives to do everything possible to get Democrats to vote and capture the Senate.

    The real problem for Clinton is that capturing the votes of people who bother to become passionately invested in a presidential primary campaign is actually an incredibly low bar. She probably can't get the vote of literally every single person who cast a ballot for Sanders this primary season, and even if she could, that wouldn't be nearly enough people. To win, she needs to mobilize not just Sanders's supporters but the much larger universe of people with left-of-center views who didn't vote in the primaries at all.

    Whoever Wins The Democratic Primary Is Responsible For Party Unity

    ...And if you’ve gotten so drunk on this primary’s rancor that you believe something unprecedented is unfurling, Vox’s Matt Yglesias will sober you up very quickly. As he points out at length, this Democratic primary has been tame, when compared with others — and really, the 2008 primary between Clinton and Barack Obama really was a full-on pit of snakes with flamethrower-hot WTFery coming from all directions when held up against the current one.

    But the secondary issue is this: Ever since the fooferaw in Nevada, the media’s focus seems to have fixated on whether Sanders will do enough to heal whatever rifts have been opened, whether he’ll summon up the grace to join Clinton in unity at the party convention, and the extent to which he’ll have to endeavor to talk his supporters down from the tree. The assumption that underlies all of this chatter is that Sanders is going to lose the primary. That’s a well-founded assumption: He is going to lose the primary.

    But this overlooks the fact that the responsibility of unifying the party falls to the winner of the primary, not the loser.

      @2:38, exactly. In 1968 it was the party leaders and machine that divided the party when they ran a pro-war candidate over the desires of millions of Americans who wanted the Vietnam war to end. Chicago party boss Richard Daley ordered Chicago police into the streets where unarmed anti-war protestors had gathered along with the media outside the convention--they were violently assaulted by the police. The result was the party divided and lost many liberals and the anti-war vote--many of them young. Republicans captured the White House for over twenty following years --except for a one term Carter.

      In the late 1980s, the Clintons and New Democrats moved the party substantially to the right in an attempt to regain the WH by attracting Republican not disaffected Democats' votes. That's still the Clinton machine’s ploy—demonizing Sanders' and his voters while trying to get the vote of moderate Republicans. To win she needs Sanders' voters. The Democratic leadership is hidebound, playing the old “boss and machine” politics that divided the party in 1968. The party’s current leaders are the ones who can unify the party by acknowledging the reality of and respecting voters who want Sanders' policies not business as usual, which includes getting big money out of politics. To do that party leaders will have to stop paying lip-service to liberal and left policies and share power with those outside the DLC and DNC who want the party to return to its roots as the party of the people not big business.

    Make No Mistake, Sandersism Has Defeated Clintonism

    ...Clintonism supports all of the above structural flaws only because they, in turn, support the election of Clintons to national office.

    And that, in a nutshell, is Clintonism: a feedback loop whose motive engine is money and influence and the continued political success of Clintons. In the 90s it was geared toward Bill; in the aughts and tens, Hillary; and we can expect that the same forces will soon be brought to bear for Chelsea, if she desires it.

    ...Sanders has pulled Clinton to the left on every issue of consequence. Now Clinton opposes all or nearly all of the recent international trade deals; supports a $15 minimum wage; wants a single-payer healthcare option for all Americans over 50; is willing to ban fracking as part of the Democratic Party platform (per reports); opposes the death penalty in all but vanishingly rare circumstances; is committed to breaking up too-big-to-fail banks; and so on.
