Senator Elizabeth Warren just elevated the level of political discourse in this country from fourth-grade to seventh-grade. On Tuesday, somehow-still-the-GOP-presidential-candidate Donald Trump said at a rally that if Hillary Clinton won, his supporters would be stuck with her Supreme Court picks and there is "nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know."
Most took this to be a veiled threat toward the Democratic nominee—though Trump claimed it wasn't—and no one hit back harder than Warren.
.@realDonaldTrump makes death threats because he's a pathetic coward who can’t handle the fact that he’s losing to a girl.— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) August 9, 2016
Wow, she's not afraid to say what we were all thinking when we were 12! To be fair, Trump has been calling Warren "Pocahontas" for a few months now, so they both deserve to get sent to the principal's office.
Warren followed up with a second tweet, telling Trump he sounds like a "dictator":
Your reckless comments sound like a two-bit dictator, @realDonaldTrump. Not a man who wants to lead the greatest democracy on the planet.— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) August 9, 2016
