(Newser) – Looks like Elizabeth Warren and Donald Trump won't be getting cozy anytime soon. The Massachusetts senator today called Trump "a loser" on Facebook and Twitter, just days after he was quoted in an interview mocking her claim to Native American heritage. "Let’s be honest—Donald Trump is a loser," Warren posted on Facebook, per Politico. "Count all his failed businesses. See how he kept his father’s empire afloat by cheating people with scams like Trump University and by using strategic corporate bankruptcy (excuse me, bankruptcies) to skip out on debt." The Democrat goes on to accuse Trump of knowing "he's a loser" and putting "his embarrassing insecurities ... on parade: petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, and flagrant narcissism."

Warren's tweet parade was no kinder, accusing Trump of being "ready to tear apart an America that was built on values like decency, community, and concern for our neighbors," and arguing that "many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers." Her barrage comes just two days after Trump criticized Warren in a New York Times interview for claiming to have Native American blood (to recap, Harvard Law School listed her as a Native American professor in the 1990s when the faculty was being called overly white; her claim to having Cherokee blood remains unproven, the Boston Herald reports). "She’s got about as much Indian blood as I have," Trump said. "Her whole life was based on a fraud. She got into Harvard and all that because she said she was a minority."
