President Trump Slams Elizabeth Warren's Instagram 'Beer Catastrophe'

BOSTON (CBS) – President Trump took to Twitter Sunday night to slam Elizabeth Warren for her viral Instagram video the night she announced she was exploring a possible run for the White House.

On New Year's Eve, Warren went on Instagram Live from her kitchen to talk to supporters, and said "I'm gonna get me a beer." Her husband also made an appearance in the live stream.

Sunday night, President Trump tweeted that the video would have "been a smash" if Warren "did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen."

In a follow up tweet, Trump called the video a "beer catastrophe."

After announcing her 2020 exploratory committee, Warren has made visits to Iowa and New Hampshire with eyes on a possible run for president.

Trump has been lambasting Warren since his 2016 campaign, when he began derisively labeling her "Pocahontas" in a shot against her claims of Native American heritage.
