Senator Elizabeth Warren has been pretty up front on her views of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, as they ran for the GOP's presidential nomination. She recently criticized the Texas Senator for "whining about his many sacrifices" to run for president.
Are you kidding me? We’re supposed to pity him because trying to be the leader of the free world is hard?! I’ve got two words for you, Ted: Boo hoo.
Last night she tweeted out that KKK leaders have more enthusiasm for Trump than do leaders of his party.
There's more enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.

And now she wrote a full take on FB on Donald Trump's apparent capture of the 2016 GOP presidential nominee.
Here's her Facebook posting on the topic:
Donald Trump is now the leader of the Republican Party. It's real – he is one step away from the White House. Here's what else is real:
Trump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia. There's more enthusiasm for him among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.
He incites supporters to violence, praises Putin, and, according to a columnist who recently interviewed him, is "cool with being called an authoritarian" and doesn't mind associations with history's worst dictators.
He attacks veterans like John McCain who were captured and puts our servicemembers at risk by cheerleading illegal torture. In a world with ISIS militants and leaders like North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un conducting nuclear tests, he surrounds himself with a foreign policy team that has been called a "collection of charlatans," and puts out contradictory and nonsensical national security ideas one expert recently called "incoherent" and "truly bizarre."
What happens next will test the character for all of us – Republican, Democrat, and Independent. It will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man's narcissism and divisiveness. I know which side I'm on, and I’m going to fight my heart out to make sure Donald Trump’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.
As Fox News' Charles Krauthammer said so elegantly last night, do you want a man that acts so irrationally "in control of the nuclear codes."
