During a campaign event on Friday in New Hampshire, Senator and 2020 democratic presidential candidate Elizebeth Warren was absolutely shredded by a man in the crowd who accused her of siding with terrorists.
The man was commenting on Warrens response to the news that President Trump ordered a strike which killed one of the world's biggest terrorists, Qassem Soleimani.
“You’re siding with racists; you’re siding with Iran. What are you siding with terrorists for?” the man shouted. “My grandfather died in World War II. You’re a fraud! Disgusting!”
“This is a man who is deeply upset,” Warren stated.
“He killed 600 Marines,” the protester said while referring to Soleimani and his large list of killed Americans. “We killed a terrorist. Trump is great. You’re a fraud. I helped rape victims, and you’re lying.”
“It’s good to see you,” Warren said.
“It’s good to see you,” the man responded, adding, “Hope you resign.”

“I think getting into a shouting match with a man who’s so clearly disturbed is not helpful to him, and not helpful to anyone,” Warren said after the incident.
Warren has made it clear that she is very much against President Trump's decision to kill Soleimani, calling his death an “assassination.”
“We never should have been in this position, to begin with. This assassination of Gen. Soleimani is reckless, and it has been part of an escalating series of attacks that the Trump administration has put forward,” she said during an interview.
The far-left senator went as far to claim that President Trump killing Soleimani would lead to World War III.
“So if Trump moves ahead with ordering this sort of attack, would he be considered a war criminal? And should we be worried about World War III?” Jen Ortiz with the Cosmopolitan asked.
“Let me start at the end. Yes, we should be worried about war,” Warren said.
Warren's opinions on the death of Soleimani are clearly extreme which is why she got grilled during an episode on "The View" by Meghan McCain.
The moment came when Warren claimed that killing terrorists who kill Americans "does not make America safer."
“So let’s start with the air strike ordered by the guy in the White House,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said. “What’s your take on all this? Do you find the timing as odd as some of us did?”
“So my take on this is Soleimani was a bad guy, but the question is what’s the right response?” Warren replied. “The job of the president of the United States is to keep America safer, and having killed Soleimani does not make America safer.”
Republican co-host Meghan McCain stepped in and shredded Warren for refusing to call Soleimani a terrorist.
“You issued a statement calling Soleimani a murderer. Later, you issued a second statement saying he was, ‘an assassination of a senior foreign military official,'” McCain slammed. “This is a man who is obviously responsible for hundreds of American troops’ deaths, carnage that we can’t imagine. The Treasury Department and the State Department have both designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization. I don’t understand the flip-flop. I don’t understand why it was so hard to call him a terrorist, and I would just like you to explain the change.”
“This isn’t a change. They’re true,” Warren responded. “The question is what is the response that the president of the United States should make and what advances the interests of the United States of America? Think about Saddam Hussein. You want to talk about a bad guy, right? However, going to war in Iraq was not in the interest of the United States. We lost thousands of American lives. It cost us here at home. It has cost us around the world. It has been apart of this cost in the Middle East that has ended up with millions of people who have lost their lives, who have been injured, who’ve been displaced.”
“Do you think he’s a terrorist?” McCain pressed.
“He is part of a group that–” Warren diverted.
“But is he a terrorist?” McCain questioned.
“He is part of a group that has been designated,” Warren said, clearly trying to dodge the question.
“So, he’s not a terrorist?” said McCain.
“Of course he is, he’s part of a group that our federal government has designated as a terrorist,” Warren said, finally giving in while still trying to undermine the severity of his killings.
