BOSTON (CBS) – What goes through Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s mind when she sees Donald Trump calling her “Pocohantas”?
“I want to say to him, do you really think this is gonna work?” said Warren in an exclusive interview with WBZ-TV News. “Let’s face it, Donald Trump is a thin-skinned, racist bully, and that’s what bullies do. He thinks somehow, if he calls me names, that I’m gonna shut up. And I think he’s got plenty of evidence now that that’s just not gonna happen because that’s the way you gotta deal with bullies, you just stand up and punch back.”

In the wide-ranging interview, Warren faulted the Obama administration and Congress for not doing more to stimulate the economy with infrastructure spending, and said she is giving the Federal Aviation Administration a “hard push” to review and revise recent changes in air-traffic patterns around Logan Airport that have triggered a spike in citizen complaints about noise and pollution.
Asked if she might take a post in the administration if Hillary Clinton wins in November, Warren said “God, I can’t imagine it. Come on, look at the job I’ve got right now… I get to reach across a whole lot of agencies to try help move them in the right direction to as well as being right there in Congress mixing it up on the statues that get passed or get blocked.”
And what about running for a second term when she’s up for re-election in 2018?
Warren says she isn’t ready to announce a second run, but “I love this job, and I’m learning every day how to use it more effectively.”
