As if Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren hadn’t previously displayed enough cringe-worthy behavior, she went ahead and one-upped herself this week.
During a rally in Seattle, Washington, Warren said she wouldn’t “allow” President Donald Trump to do “handsy thing” with her if they meet him on a debate stage in the general election.
“I’m gonna start with—I know how to fight and I know how to win,” Warren said, trying to act tough for the crowd.
“And—you don’t back down from a bully. You just, you have to be willing to lay into this, right? And nobody’s gettin’ behind me on a debate stage and doing a handsy thing. That’s not happening,” she added.
Warren is referring to a 2016 town hall debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton when they stood on a stage without podiums.
Trump walked around the stage during the event because he didn’t want to sit down for an hour, and even wandered behind Clinton while she was taking questions from audience members.
In her book, “What Happened,” Clinton theatrically claimed that she thought Trump was trying to physically intimidate her.
“This is not OK, I thought. It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looming behind me,” Clinton wrote.
“Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable,” Clinton added.
Clinton added that she considered looking at Trump and telling him, “Back up, you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.”
This apparently inspired Warren to make a mind-boggling sexual comment about Trump if they meet on a debate stage.
Beyond that, this is the second time in recent days Warren has made headlines for the wrong reason.
Late last week, Warren apologized for lying about being Native American.
While speaking at a forum focused on Native American issues, Warren issued an apology for her past claims of Native American heritage.
“Before I go any further in this, I want to say this,” Warren began.
“Like anyone who’s being honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes; I am sorry for the harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together,” she added.

Warren has been engulfed in the scandal for many years after claiming to have Cherokee Indian heritage.
A few years ago, Warren came under fire after it was revealed that she previously claimed to be Native American when she was a law professor at Harvard University.
Last October, Warren released the results of a DNA test she took, and it was a total embarrassment.
Her results showed she is only 1/1,024th American Indian, which is less than the average white person from North America.
Warren’s only Native American ancestor appears in her family tree “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.”
The doctor who performed the test said he believes the ancestor could have been Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, who was partially Native American.
In other words, she lied for years about being Native American and now she’s trying to walk her lie back because she’s running for president.
