Here are a few choice segments from Warren's barnburner. Transcript via Politico:

First up - nailing him on the hate speech and fearmongering, the literal theme of the RNC:

“Trump thinks he can win votes by fanning the flames of fear and hatred. By turning neighbor against neighbor. By persuading you that the real problem in America is your fellow Americans – people who don’t look like you, or don’t talk like you, or don’t worship like you…

That’s Donald Trump’s America. An America of fear and hate. An America where we all break apart. Whites against Blacks and Latinos."

Next up - racism

"Christians against Muslims and Jews. Straight against gay. Everyone against immigrants. Race, religion, heritage, gender – the more factions the better.

But ask yourself this. When white workers in Ohio are pitted against black workers in North Carolina, or Latino workers in Florida – who really benefits?

Then - segregation and an invocation of MLK's profound words

"Divide and Conquer is an old story in America. Dr. Martin Luther King knew it. After his march from Selma to Montgomery, he spoke of how segregation was created to keep people divided. Instead of higher wages for workers, Dr. King described how poor whites in the South were fed Jim Crow, which told a poor white worker that, quote, “no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the black man.” Racial hatred was part of keeping the powerful on top.…

When we turn on each other, bankers can run our economy for Wall Street, oil companies can fight off clean energy, and giant corporations can ship the last good jobs overseas. …

When we turn on each other, we can’t unite to fight back against a rigged system."

And finally, Donald Trump, the con man

"Well, I’ve got news for Donald Trump. The American people are not falling for it!"

Surprisingly, Donald didn't tweet even once during Warren's speech. Did his kids take his phone away? Weak!

UPDATE: Here's his weak lying effort afterwards. Sad!
