Donald Trump ignited a new battle in his 2016 presidential election Twitter war on Wednesday, breathing new life into his debate with U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The pair had feuded in Tweets over the weekend, with Trump branding Warren “Goofy Elizabeth Warren” and Warren warning Trump she was not afraid of confrontation. Trump accused Warren of not having accomplished much in the Senate and that she was not courageous enough to run for president. Warren, in response, let Trump have it.
“We get it,” she told Trump, “When a woman stands up to you, you’re going to call her a basket case. Hormonal. Ugly.”
“Do you think you’re going to shut us up?” she asked. “Think again. It’s time to answer for your dangerous ideas.”
She then excoriated Trump’s positions on abolishing the federal minimum wage and repealing Dodd-Frank, as well as his business practices at Trump University.
.@realDonaldTrump: Your policies are dangerous. Your words are reckless. Your record is embarrassing. And your free ride is over.

Trump, of course, responded too, accusing Warren of being a “failed Senator” and playing “the woman’s card.”
Goofy Elizabeth Warren is now using the woman’s card like her friend crooked Hillary. See her dumb tweet “when a woman stands up to you…”
