Sen. Warren: Supporting Trump Like Calling an Arsonist If Your House Is On Fire

Wednesday on CBS’s “Late Show,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said supporting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was like “if your house is on fire, calling an arsonist to come help out.”

Warren said, “Let’s be real clear Donald Trump is looking out for exactly one guy, and that guy’s name is Donald Trump. Look, he smells that there is change in the air and what he wants to do is make sure that change works really, really well for Donald Trump.”

She continued, “This is the deal, you gotta kinda look a little closer at Donald Trump. Because this is his main claim to how it is that he says he’s qualified to be president of the United States. He says, in business he wins, wins, wins. Well, the truth is, he inherited a fortune from his father… he kept it going by cheating and defrauding people, and then he treks detractors through chapter 11.”

She added, “Look, that really is the heart of it, that Donald Trump knows that there’s change and the question is, ‘So what’s gonna happen from that?’ We have an economy that’s in real trouble. But when the economy is in this kind of trouble calling on Donald Trump for help is like, if your house is on fire, calling an arsonist to come help out.”
