“I went to Trump’s inauguration. I watched. I wanted to see it. I wanted it burned in my eyes,” Warren told Maher.

“My view on this was if there was every going to be a moment where I was like, ‘Oh I’m too tired to get up,’ all I had to do is close my eyes and it’s like, ‘Oh god, I’m up. I’m ready. I’m back in the fight.' ”

Trump attacked Warren on Friday in a speech, mentioning her as a potential 2020 opponent and derisively using the mocking term “Pocahontas” to refer to her.
