Trump Attacks 'Goofy' Elizabeth Warren — and She Replies With String of No-Holds Barred Tweets

"I hope corrupt Hillary Clinton chooses goofy Elizabeth Warren as her running mate. I will defeat them both."

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump set his sights on Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), dubbing her "goofy" and calling for an investigation into her supposed Native American ancestry.

The debate over Warren's heritage isn't new. She claims she is 1/32 Cherokee Indian, but was questioned on the issue in 2012 when she ran for Senate against then-incumbent Sen. Scott Brown (R). So Friday, Trump reignited the controversy, saying, "I say she's a fraud!"

Trump also went after Warren, who has been floated as a vice presidential pick for likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, in March, telling New York Times writer Maureen Dowd, "She’s got about as much Indian blood as I have."

But as soon as the Massachusetts lawmaker saw Trump's comments on social media, she let loose in an epic tweet storm, replacing the billionaire businessman's signature "Sad!" with "Weak!"

The feud comes only a couple days after Warren unloaded in a Facebook post on Trump's campaign, writing that his entire platform is built "on racism, sexism, and xenophobia."
