Progressive presidential candidate calls car crashes acts of “traffic violence”


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) is still polling at the very top of most polls, even as Mayor Peter Buttigieg is showing increased support in states like Iowa and New Hampshire, and Vice President Joe Biden holds firm as the overall frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary contest.

While Americans are familiar with the term gun violence, which is used to describe all injuries and deaths as of result of the use of a firearm, Sen. Warren has coined a new term to re-label car accidents.

Warren is now referring to your basic run-of-the-mill car crash as an incident of “traffic violence.”
