Elizabeth Warren – Twitter Takes Her to Task

By Faye Higbee

Elizabeth Warren got her ‘clock cleaned’ by Twitter users after she attempted to  tell people she believes in science and “climate change is real.” Of course, Donald Trump had to say something about the cold back East that day. Was he making a statement about #liewatha (didn’t use her name)?

What Warren said on December 28 was, “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.”

Crazy? Crazy is claiming to be Native American when you’re not.

Now that it’s firmly established… here are the Twitter users who took her to task:
