Donald Trump Jr. seems to be enjoying the infighting between top Democratic presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
The eldest son of the president put a little spin on the old adage “If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen,” saying, “If [Warren] can’t take the heat she should get out of the teepee!”

Trump Jr. was responding to an article by The Hill, in which Warren commented that she was “disappointed” by Sanders and his supporters antagonism toward her.
“I was disappointed to hear that Bernie is sending his volunteers out to trash me,” Warren told reporters on Sunday. “Bernie knows me, and has known me for a long time, he knows who I am, where I come from, what I have worked on and fought for and the coalition and grassroots movement we’re trying to build.”
Additionally, Warren said that she hopes “Bernie reconsiders and turns his campaign in a different direction.”
This debacle came about after reports showed that Sanders’ call-scripts instructed his volunteers to state that Warren is their “second choice” before listing out “concerns” about the Massachusetts senator, like that she’s backed by “highly educated, more affluent people” who’ll vote Democrat “no matter what.”
