  Google’s new app turns your ugly doodles into art Most of us aren’t talented artists, so if I ever need a graphic for some project I’ll usually resort to finding clipart on the web. It’s incredibly simple to use, and a whole lot of fun. Start drawing, and Google starts guessing what you’re trying to draw with a banner running atop the page. Basically, imagine a robot trying to play pictionary.

Donald Trump served Ted Cruz another steaming platter of defeat in Tuesday's Indiana primary, forcing the Texas senator out of the race for president — and firing up Democrats like Elizabeth Warren , who says she'll "fight [her] heart out" " Trump has built his campaign on racism , sexism, and xenophobia.

Sen . Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), seen in a 2015 file photo, accused Donald Trump of " racism , sexism and xenophobia." I know which side I'm on, and I’m going to fight my heart out to make sure Donald Trump ’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.

The Massachusetts Democrat has been one of the most outspoken critics of the real estate mogul since he launched his presidential campaign in 2015, taking every opportunity to call him a “fraud” and a “ thin-skinned bully.” Since Trump’s inauguration, Warren has escalated her fight against the president, leading the opposition against Senator Jeff Sessions’s nomination for Attorney General and urging the Senate to vote down Betsy DeVos’ nomination.

When asked by Rachel Maddow why so many middle-class voters cast their ballots for Trump, Warren said the U.S. rhetoric appealed to voters who felt angry and frustrated about the lack of job opportunities.

She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people. Those people who don’t worship like you, those people who don’t look like you, those people who aren’t the same color as you.”

Warren also attacked the president for not fulfilling any of his campaign pledges and his promise to help the working class. “He has already signed off on a law to make it easier for employers to steal their employees’ wages. He’s made it easier for investment advisers to cheat retirees,” she said.

Earlier on Wednesday, Warren said on ABC’s The View that her biggest regret was “that Donald Trump is president of the United States, period.” She called Trump a “master of distraction” and urged Democrats to unite and focus on combating his agenda. “This man is truly dangerous,” she said.
