The latest attack on Donald Trump is that he once talked of making money in a down housing market, which is exactly what you’d expect from a real estate investor, right?
Apparently Hillary doesn’t agree:
When Trump got his wish for a housing crash, millions of Americans lost their homes.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren jumped in as well last night, saying Trump was “drooling over a housing meltdown” and asking her audience, “What kind of man does that?”

Does what, exactly? Buying foreclosed properties and selling them for a quick buck?
Who would do such a thing???
@elizabethforma Goofy Elizabeth Warren, sometimes known as Pocahontas, bought foreclosed housing and made a quick killing. Total hypocrite!

Yep, Senator Warren is a gigantic hypocrite and engaged in some of the behavior she now criticizes. From National Review in May 2015:
She owes at least part of her considerable financial success, it seems, to snapping up these properties in her native Oklahoma and turning them for a profit — though today that’s not a practice she endorses for the many people looking to emulate her success. The Boston Herald reported on these purchases during Warren’s Senate run in 2012, noting that she invested in “the often topsy-turvy real-estate market of the 1990s” and that her actions “don’t seem to square with her public statements about the latest real estate boom and bust.”
Warren bought two homes after they’d fallen into foreclosure. And though she spent money fixing up the Hickman home before selling it, records suggest she sold others at a significant profit without making any meaningful upgrades.
What kind of woman does this? (Sarcasm, of course.)
Earlier in the day, Trump issued a statement defending his past comments, saying he’s a “businessman” who “made a lot of money in down markets,” which is “the kind of thinking our country needs.”
