Elizabeth Warren is no closer to endorsing Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, but she is once again jumping into the political fray to attack Donald Trump.

The Massachusetts Democratic senator called Trump a “loser” in a scathing series of tweets last week, and she didn’t back down as she attacked the heart of his message in an appearance on The Late Show Wednesday night.

She called Trump a loser, yes, but she also attacked him for the inheritance his father gave him, his ability to cheat and defraud, and his racist rhetoric.

She also told host Stephen Colbert that electing Trump would be like calling an arsonist when your house was already on fire.

“Donald Trump is looking out for exactly one guy, and that guy’s name is Donald Trump,” Warren said. “He smells that there’s change in the air, and what he wants to do is make sure that change works really, really well for Donald Trump.”
