Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has proven to be one of the most adept attack dogs against presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

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.
