Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren used President Trump’s Pocahontas comments and dare to take a DNA test in a fundraising email sent Friday.
“Donald Trump is still obsessed with the idea that he can shut me up. He really should know better by now,” the email reads.
“He ranted about me at another rally last night, just days after his PR team used the official @WhiteHouse Twitter account to attack me, too (I was visiting our troops in Iraq and Kuwait at the time, so I missed the whole thing),” the email continued.
The fundraising email continued, saying, “But here’s the really creepy part: In the same breath, he mocked the entire #MeToo movement.”
She also said that Trump “isn’t just trying to scare me – he’s trying to bully all women and make us all shut up.”
Trump went after Warren at a Montana rally on Tuesday. He dared her to take a DNA test, pledging “$1 million to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you are an Indian.”
He apologized to the real Pocahontas, but “to the fake Pocahontas, I won’t apologize. That name is causing her problems,” the president added. He also commented on the #MeToo movement, saying he has to be gentle with the way he phrases sentences.
Warren responded via Twitter, deflecting from her dubious history of claiming to be Native American and focusing on the #MeToo movement.
