Former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin took aim at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), accusing her of appropriating what she says is her catchphrase, “fight like a girl.”
In an interview with Breitbart, Palin took issue with Warren’s use of the phrase during her book tour, as well as in a photo with the “Fearless Girl” statue currently opposing the Wall Street Bull as a show of female strength.

Palin told the conservative outlet that she finds it funny that Warren, and other left-leaning women, use the phrase because they think that women should “claim victimization.”
“I don’t know. Coming from liberals who urge women to claim victimization, ‘Fight like a girl’ just doesn’t sound the same as when legit fighters for equality say it, mean it, live it, and will never give it up,” she told Breitbart.
Brietbart highlighted several instances in which Palin used the phrase in “more than a mere tweet,” including an anti-uniont even in Wisconsin and a Tea Party event.
The phrase is obviously a popular one, being used for everything from songs to clothing to a foundation fighting breast cancer, with many predating Palin’s political ambitions.
