Elizabeth Warren got slumped when she finished in fourth place in New Hampshire. Now she's sliding in the polls and going on the offensive in her latest attacks on fellow candidate, Michael Bloomberg.
She was in Washington D.C. and randomly turned her talks into an anti-Bloomberg rant, accusing him of getting in the election because he's got tons of cash. She even joked that Bloomberg bought his way into the election, which could be possible, but does not appear to have been investigated. If you recall, the DNC changed it's rules to allow him to debate, did anyone look into why? Was there any secret handshakes? That remains unknown.
Jamie Dupree of the Dayton Daily News reported on what Warren said:
"Michael Bloomberg came in on the billionaire plan," Warren said, as the crowd booed at the mention of his name. "Just buy yourself the nomination."
“A video just came out yesterday in which Michael Bloomberg is saying in effect, that the 2008 financial crash was caused because the banks weren’t permitted to discriminate against black and brown people,” Warren said, sharpening a verbal knife for the former New York mayor.
“And anyone who thinks that should not be the leader of our party," Warren added.
Elizabeth Warren's disdain for Michael Bloomberg didn't stop there. She had also posted numerous messages about Bloomberg and some of them involved redlining and racism.
I'm surprised that someone running for the Democratic nomination thinks the economy would be better off if we just let banks be more overtly racist. We need to confront the shameful legacy of discrimination, not lie about it like Mike Bloomberg has done.
The end of redlining didn't cause the 2008 crash. Out-of-control greed by Wall Street and big banks, and the corruption that lets them control our government, caused the crash. Predatory lenders steered families of color into the worst loans and those families lost billions.
We need to take concrete steps to address the impact of redlining and the subprime mortgage crisis. I built an office at the @CFPB to fight lending discrimination and my housing plan helps families in formerly redlined areas to buy homes and build wealth.
On the contrary, Elizabeth Warren has a net worth estimated at $12 million. She isn't quite a billionaire, but you won't see her collecting food stamps anytime soon.
She also has a history of being involved in scandals accusing her of lies and that infamous failed DNA test.
