Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) used Donald Trump’s insults to her own advantage on Monday. At a Hillary Clinton campaign rally in New Hampshire, Warren introduced the Democratic nominee with a message: “Nasty women are tough. Nasty women are smart. And nasty women vote.” Her remarks were a play on Trump’s insult that Clinton was a “nasty woman” at their third presidential debate last week.
Clinton thanked Warren for the introduction, before acknowledging the Massachusetts senator’s fight against powerful banks.
“She is going to make sure Wall Street never wrecks Main Street again,” Clinton said.
Clinton’s comments come a day after Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein said he “engages” with Clinton and is supportive of her in this year’s election.
Yet, this cozy relationship with Goldman Sachs did not come up in conversation in New Hampshire. Clinton simply told the crowd she is dedicated to changing the economy to make it “fairer for everyone.”
For Clinton to show her face with Warren, a progressive hero, while she receives praise from Wall Street and refuses to release her transcripts from her Wall Street speeches, is rich.
