IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME . . .
I woke up yesterday morning, turned on "Morning Joe" and learned that the evening before, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) had delivered a blistering critique of Donald (t)rump's controversial housing comments at the Center for Popular Democracy's annual gala. From the Washington Post:
The line that is driving all the attention this morning is Warren’s suggestion, in the context of Trump’s 2006 comment that a housing crash might enrich him, that the Donald is a “small, insecure money-grubber.” But Warren isn’t merely dissing Trump’s manhood. Warren — who went on to note that Trump “roots for people to get thrown out of their house” because he “doesn’t care who gets hurt, as long as he makes a profit” — is making a broader argument. Trump is not just a small, greedy person, but a cruel one, too.
But wait, there's more:
“Donald Trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up a bunch more property on the cheap,” said Ms. Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts. “What kind of a man does that?”
She went on to argue that Mr. Trump was rooting for people to lose their jobs and be kicked out of their houses.
“I’ll tell you exactly what kind of a man does that,” Ms. Warren added. “It is a man who cares about no one but himself. A small, insecure money-grubber who doesn’t care who gets hurt so long as he makes a profit off it.”
And even more . . .
On Tuesday night, Ms. Warren also suggested that Mr. Trump pays no taxes while reaping the benefits of American public infrastructure. And she hit him for saying that he would undo the Dodd-Frank financial regulation legislation, wondering if Mr. Trump could even name three things about the law.
“Donald Trump is worried about helping poor little Wall Street?” Ms. Warren said. “Let me find the world’s smallest violin to play a sad, sad song.”
I don't know about you, but I'm relieved that SOMEone is saying (and tweeting) what we all know: "Let's face it. Donald Trump is about one thing and one thing only: Donald Trump."
When the "Morning Joe" segment about this ended, co-host, Mika Brzezinski said, "I don't care, but give that woman (Warren) a microphone and whatever else she wants."
Preach it, sister.
GOSH, I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER!
