When billionaire blowhard Donald Trump heard the news that Hillary Clinton had picked Tim Kaine as her running mate, he just couldn’t stop himself from trying to get in a dig at Elizabeth Warren. Somehow he hasn’t learned from experience that every time he tries to attack the Massachusetts senator she gives him a brutal smackdown.
Trump took a swing at Warren on Twitter early Saturday morning. Being the raging bigot that he is, he began with his trademark racist name-calling.
Pocahontas wanted V.P. slot so badly but wasn't chosen because she has done nothing in the Senate. Also, Crooked Hillary hates her!

Warren took aim at the Republican nominee and just like every time before, she shot him down. Trump just can’t seem to come to terms with the fact that when he comes to a battle of the minds with her, he comes completely unarmed. He continues to pick fights with her that he simply cannot win, making a total jackass out of himself each and every time.
I’m right where I want to be, @realDonaldTrump: Calling you out & holding you responsible for your reckless vision for America.

Elizabeth is a progressive hero, but that isn’t necessarily what the Democratic ticket needs at the moment, regardless of how much some of us would have loved to see it.
She knows how much power she wields in the senate, and in all honesty, we need her there right now. She also knows that many Republicans are horrified by the racist buffoon at the head of the GOP, or at the very least, unsure about where who they should cast their vote for considering the circumstances.
With so much at stake, and with Trump convincing every closet racist in the country to come out loud and proud to support him, the goal has to be to win. Period. Warren knows how she can best help make sure that happens.
Warren has proved to be one of Clinton’s best weapon against The Donald. She knows how to get under his skin and send him into a full-on temper tantrum, followed up by a verbal spanking that leaves him red-faced and blubbering in the corner.
