Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) was pummeled on Friday after she made a claim many found shocking: that she "believes in science."
It all began when Trump made controversial claims about the weather and climate change on Thursday:
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old G… https://t.co/tCjF8xdXep— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1514505707.0
Trump's comments prompted Warren to rebuke him shortly after. She said: "I’m going to say something really crazy: I believe in science. Climate change is real and we have a moral obligation to protect this Earth for our children and grandchildren."

Indeed, many people found Warren's statement "crazy" just as she predicted. That's because Warren takes the now-widely held progressive belief that there is a spectrum of genders and that just because someone is born one gender, that doesn't mean that's the gender they really are.
Also, Warren believes that abortion is perfectly reasonable. The assumption that goes along with that belief is that aborted fetuses aren't really humans.
Critics also slammed Warren for claiming that she is part-Native American, something that many have called into doubt.
Here's the resounding response to Warren's tweet:
