As Twitchy recently reported, billionaire Leon Cooperman didn’t hold back in an interview when asked about Elizabeth Warren and her plan to tax billionaires out of existence to fund her many, many, many free social programs. “I believe in a progressive income tax and the rich paying more,” he said. “But this is the f**king American dream she is s**tting on.”
Warren has now purchased commercial time on CNBC to “blast billionaires in a fiery new campaign ad.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is launching a new attack on the billionaires who have criticized her proposed taxes and policies with a new ad set to air on CNBC this week, according to a campaign aide.
Titled “Elizabeth Warren Stands Up to Billionaires,” the ad takes aim at longtime investor Leon Cooperman, former CEO of TD Ameritrade Joe Ricketts, former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and Silicon Valley investor Peter Thiel.
Here’s the spot:
Cooperman wasn’t too thrilled to be featured in the ad.
NEW: Leon Cooperman has responded to Elizabeth Warren's ad. "She’s disgraceful. She doesn’t know who the f— she’s tweeting. I gave away more in the year then she has in her whole f—-ing lifetime” he just told me. https://t.co/8g6VEY3sVl

Unbiased journalist Laura Bassett isn’t crying too many tears for Cooperman.
Imagine having a complete meltdown because someday you might only be able to afford to buy one private island instead of two https://t.co/Ae57TmODWs

It’s always about the working and middle class deciding what the rich “deserve” with these people. Remember how Bernie Sanders was triggered when Bill Gates said that paying $100 billion in taxes might make him think twice about a wealth tax? Imagine having a meltdown someday because squatters took over two of your three homes.
'And that's OK?' NYT's national politics reporter says taxing Bill Gates $100 billion is fine because 'he'd have 6 billion left over' https://t.co/hrMM1eP21B
