Trump nicknames Elizabeth Warren, says she’s Hillary’s “goofy friend”

From ABC 7 Chicago:

Donald Trump says he’s fed up with Elizabeth Warren.

During a rally here Friday night at the Lane Events Convention Center, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee took aim at the Democratic senator from Massachusetts, who has been writing tweets critical of him in recent days.

I see your social media taunt and raise you a real life humiliation

So at Friday night’s rally, Trump bestowed upon her — like he has with many of his other foes — a nickname: “Goofy Elizabeth Warren,” or his abbreviated variation, “Goofus.”

Trump told his supporters, “I just learned that ‘Crooked Hillary,’ along with her friend — you know she’s got this goofy friend named Elizabeth Warren, she’s on a Twitter rant. She’s a ‘goofus,’ she is a ‘goofus.'”

It didn’t take long for Warren to respond, taking to Twitter, writing, “I called out @realDonaldTrump on Tuesday. 45 million saw it. He’s so confident about his ‘counter punch’ he waited until Friday night. Lame.”

She also tweeted, “‘Goofy,’ @realDonaldTrump? For a guy with “the best words” that’s a pretty lame nickname. Weak!”

In fairness to Warren, given conservatives have been calling her “Fauxcahontas” for the past 4+ years, she does have a point there, but truth be told I’m good with “Goofus” too because there’s some proof she really is Indian…


It’s like someone just hit copy/paste on her face…

Trump added of Warren, “By the way she’s done nothing in the United States Senate, she’s done nothing.”

He also took issue with Warren’s past claims that she’s part Native American. “You know, her whole career is a fraud because she goes out and she says she’s a Native American,” he said. “I won’t use the word Indian, because they say it’s not a nice word to use.”
