Now the progressive senator is training her considerable fire on Trump’s newly revealed vice-presidential pick, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R).
Warren took to Twitter on Saturday to savage Pence’s opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage. She argued that Pence’s positions make him a perfect fit for Trump, a “guy who calls women fat pigs & bimbos” and who has expressed distaste for same-sex marriage. Warren also made sure to emphasize that both men ― far from being fringe candidates ― represent the Republican mainstream. She noted that the GOP party platform includes the socially conservative positions one or both of them endorse.
Warren’s anti-Trump broadsides have reportedly impressed aides to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, whose campaign is considering Warren as a vice presidential candidate. If Clinton ends up picking Warren, then the inevitable showdown with Pence, her would-be counterpart on the Republican ticket, will already have begun.
