"I'd like to talk about who we're running against - a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians," Warren said. "And no, I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about Michael Bloomberg."

Warren went on to say she'll support whoever the Democratic nominee is, but that Bloomberg would be a deeply flawed alternative to Trump.

"Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women, and of supporting racist policies like redlining and stop and frisk," Warren went on. "Democrats take a huge risk if we just substitute one arrogant billionaire for another."
