So far, Hillary Clinton's camp has left something to be desired when it comes to taking on Donald Drumpf. As Gawker's Alex Pareene put it (opens in new tab) in excruciating and accurate detail, "Dangerous Donald" remains among the least effective—and lamest—attacks on the Orange One of this cycle. However, there is one Democrat who can land punches on the presumptive Republican nominee—Elizabeth Warren.
She dropped a formidable tirade against him earlier this week:
.@realDonaldTrump is now the leader of the @GOP. It's real - he is one step away from the White House.May 4, 2016
Here’s what else is real: @realDonaldTrump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia.May 4, 2016
There's more enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.May 4, 2016
.@realDonaldTrump incites supporters to violence, praises Putin, and is "cool with being called an authoritarian."May 4, 2016
.@realDonaldTrump attacks vets like @SenJohnMcCain who were captured & puts our servicemembers at risk by cheerleading illegal torture.May 4, 2016
And @realDonaldTrump puts out out contradictory & nonsensical national security ideas one expert called "incoherent" & "truly bizarre."May 4, 2016
What happens next will test the character for all of us – Republican, Democrat, and Independent.May 4, 2016
It will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man's narcissism and divisiveness.May 4, 2016
I'm going to fight my heart out to make sure @realDonaldTrump’s toxic stew of hatred & insecurity never reaches the White House.May 4, 2016
Drumpf took it all in stride and, in an effort to be more presidential, declined to respond.
Warren fired back—big time:
I called out @realDonaldTrump on Tuesday. 45 million saw it. He's so confident about his "counter punch" he waited until Friday night. Lame.May 7, 2016
“Goofy,” @realDonaldTrump? For a guy with "the best words" that’s a pretty lame nickname. Weak!May 7, 2016
We saw what happened when birthers like @realDonaldTrump attacked @BarackObama. They lost big. American voters knew better.May 7, 2016
We saw when Scott Brown attacked my family & his staff made tomahawk chops & war whoops. They lost big. MA voters knew better.May 7, 2016
.@realdonaldtrump is a bully who has a single play in his playbook -- offensive lies thrown at anyone who calls him out.May 7, 2016
.@realDonaldTrump spews insults and lies because he can’t have an honest conversation about his dangerous vision for America.May 7, 2016
But here's the thing. You can beat a bully -- not by tucking tail and running, but by holding your ground.May 7, 2016
If you think recycling Scott Brown's hate-filled attacks on my family is going to shut me up, @realDonaldTrump, think again buddy. Weak.May 7, 2016
The @GOP's hate-filled lies didn’t scare me before, @realDonaldTrump. And they don't scare me now.May 7, 2016
.@realDonaldTrump lied his way through the primaries without being held accountable. That’s over.May 7, 2016
Whatever @realDonaldTrump says, we won't shut up. We won't back down. This election is too important, & he won’t step foot in White House.May 7, 2016
Of course, the apricot demagogue couldn't let that slide:
For those keeping score, every Drumpf response mentioned Warren's much remarked upon (opens in new tab) Native American heritage—and none, of course, engaged with what she was actually saying.
