Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) thought Donald Trump's acceptance speech was unbecoming for a man who's running for the highest office, but we shouldn't underestimate just how dangerous a threat he is to a democracy much more fragile than we used to think.

Who better than Senator Elizabeth Warren to give her instant reaction to Donald Trump’s Republican National Convention acceptance speech live on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show Thursday night?

No one on the left—including Hillary Clinton—has been as effective at getting under Trump’s skin as Warren has. The woman Trump derisively calls “Pocahontas” (when not labeling her “goofy”) has been an unrelenting critic of both his dangerous rhetoric and disastrous policy proposals from the moment he effectively clinched the nomination in May. Since then, she has refused to back down, telling The View recently that Trump “can’t bully me into shutting up.”
“I’ve got to tell you, that speech tonight, he sounded like some two-bit dictator of some country that you couldn’t find on a map,” Warren added. “He sounded like a dictator of a small country rather than a man who is running for the highest office of the strongest democracy on the face of this earth.”

“Everyone is underestimating Donald Trump,” Warren said later. “He is one dangerous man and we need to take him seriously. Take him out now.”
