Senate Democrat Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren went after former President Barack Obama for the second time in less than as many weeks, in a hot-tempered interview with The Guardian.
Obama claimed that he grew the economy 11.5 percent stronger than its highest growth-rate prior the 2007-2008 financial crisis. He also offered statistics that show the economy having generated almost 15 million new jobs in a period of 75 months.
Warren considers those numbers both cherry-picked and misleading.
“I think President Obama, like many others in both parties, talk about a set of big national statistics that look shiny and great but increasingly have giant blind spots,” she said in the interview.
The Massachusetts senator then appeared to slip into Trump-style populism, oddly imitating the man she loves to hate.
“The experiences of most Americans is that they are being left behind in this economy,” she said.
