Reading Elizabeth Warren’s Twitter page throughout the rise of Donald Trump has been like watching a mental breakdown in real-time. She can’t go more than a few days without going berserk over something the man said or did, and never can seem to condense her thoughts to a single tweet.Just take a look at one day’s worth of tweets from May of last year, at a time when the consensus was still that Trump didn’t stand a chance against Hillary.
Naturally, it’s only gotten worse since then.
Given Trump and Warren’s affinity for Twitter, it sure would be entertaining to watch the two duke it out in 140 characters throughout the course of something like a presidential run. Trump hopes so too.According to The Hill, President Trump said in an interview broadcast Saturday night that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) launching a presidential bid against him would be “a dream come true.”
“I think she’d lose so badly,” Trump said during an interview on Fox News’ “Watters’ World.”
Trump claimed Warren, a top surrogate for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “was getting up with that craziness and that anger” in speeches on the campaign trail.“I think she hurt Hillary Clinton very badly,” Trump said. “I watched those speeches – the anger, the hatred, in her heart – and I said, ‘Ya know, she’s really bad for Hillary.'”
“Pocahontas would not be proud of her as her representative, believe me,” Trump continued, resurfacing his campaign trail nickname for the Democratic senator.Fox host Jesse Watters suggested that Warren, who is among several Democratic senators often floated as a possible 2020 contender, is “probably going to run against you.” “I hope so,” Trump responded. “That would be a dream come true.”
Warren ripped into Trump in various speeches during last year’s campaign, and has remained a constant presence on Twitter going after Trump since he took office in late January.
And he’s right. A poll last month showed that in a hypothetical head-to-head between Trump and Warren, Trump would win 42-36, and the poll had a sample that had 7 percentage points more Democrats than Republicans.
