Elizabeth Warren officially backs Hillary Clinton

June 10, 2016

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president on Thursday night, capping a banner day for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Earlier on Thursday, President Obama threw his weight behind Clinton with a three-minute YouTube video in which he said, “I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office.”

“I am ready to get in this fight and work my heart out for Hillary Clinton to become the next president of the United States, and to make sure that Donald Trump never gets any place close to the White House,” Warren said on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show. The endorsement followed a speech Warren delivered in which she unleashed more blistering remarks about the presumptive Republican nominee, blasting Trump as a “thin skinned, racist bully.” The explosive language from Warren however, was not the day’s biggest fireworks. Those came earlier when Trump criticized Obama’s official endorsement of Clinton in a post on Twitter. Within minutes, Clinton fired back with a curt response: “Delete your account.” Trump, naturally, fired right back and the Twitter feuding carried into Friday with Trump blasting Warren in a tweet, and her echoing Clinton’s sentiment to delete his account. Fasten your seatbelt for what promises to be the Twitter feud of the century over the next few months.
