Former Massachusetts Senator and carpetbagger candidate Scott Brown said some words about Elizabeth Warren's epic rant Tuesday night, where she vowed to fight against Trump's "toxic stew of hatred and insecurity."

In a radio interview with the Boston Herald, Brown suggested that Warren was drunk-tweeting, which earned the laughter and agreement of Jaclyn Cashman, his interviewer.

“I envision her with a glass of Chardonnay in Cambridge,” she said, as Brown laughed. “I guarantee that she was half in the bag tweeting last night.”

Brown, who actually has more of a record of drunk-tweeting, laughed right along with her. I guess when you're a has-been Senator with no prospects for reviving your career, anything goes.

Here are some more juicy (and stupid) quotes:

Brown has addressed questions about his own tweeting in the past. In 2013, the former Republican senator posted a series of misspelled, dismissive tweets on a late night. “bqhatevwr,” he infamously wrote. Critics at the time questioned whether Brown was drunk when he sent the mangled tweet.

“I rarely drink, the last time I was ever drunk was my bachelor party,” he said at the time, according to the Washington Post.Herald Radio host Jaclyn Cashman on Wednesday agreed with Brown’s questioning of Warren’s drinking habits.

“I envision her with a glass of Chardonnay in Cambridge,” she said, as Brown laughed. “I guarantee that she was half in the bag tweeting last night.”

Brown, who endorsed Trump for president, said Warren had not accomplished anything of note in office.

“All she does is yell and criticize and demean and belittle people instead of working for the people of Massachusetts,” he said. “If it’s the new norm to go down there and yell and scream at people and divide people, she’s doing a great job at that.”

Brown was an early endorser of Trump, given their joint proclivities for behaving like racists to garner a few nativist votes, so it comes as no surprise that he'd take advantage of any opportunity to support his hero.
