President Trump just fired a brutal shot at Massachusetts Senator and 1/1024th American Indian Elizabeth Warren after she announced her run for President in 2020:
Pete Hegseth: Elizabeth Warren “says she’s in the fight all the way Mr. President, do you really think she believes she can win?”
President Donald Trump: “Well, that I don’t know. You’d have to ask her psychiatrist.”

Now THAT is funny!
Massachusetts Senator and 1/1024th American Indian Elizabeth Warren has thrown her hat into the ring, as Fox News reports:
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Monday she is filing paperwork to launch an exploratory committee for president, taking her first major step toward a 2020 run for the White House.
“Today, I’m launching an exploratory committee for president,” Warren, 69, a Democrat, said in a video released to supporters.
In her announcement, Warren argued government “has been bought and paid for by a bunch of billionaires and giant corporations that think they get to dictate the rules that affect everyone,” calling it “corruption, pure and simple.”
“That’s not how government is supposed to work,” Warren said. “You know it. I know it. And we know it is time to fight back.”
As for details about her campaign, Warren said she’ll “announce a plan” early in the new year.
Associated Press reports:
Warren burst onto the national scene a decade ago during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections. She quickly became one of the party’s more prominent liberals even as she sometimes fought with Obama administration officials over their response to the market turmoil.
Now, as a likely presidential contender, she is making an appeal to the party’s base. Her video notes the economic challenges facing people of color along with images of a women’s march and Warren’s participation at an LGBT event.
In an email to supporters, Warren said she’d more formally announce a campaign plan early in 2019.
Warren is the most prominent Democrat yet to make a move toward a presidential bid and has long been a favorite target of President Donald Trump.
In mid-December, former Obama housing chief Julian Castro also announced a presidential exploratory committee, which legally allows potential candidates to begin raising money. Outgoing Maryland Rep. John Delaney is the only Democrat so far to have formally announced a presidential campaign.
But that’s likely to change quickly in the new year as other leading Democrats take steps toward White House runs.
