At an event in Chicago last week, Warren slammed Republicans' efforts to repeal Obamacare. She said they want a more "brutal" health care bill.

She said the GOP's first effort at passing a health care bill failed because it "was not brutal enough for a big chunk of the Republican party."

"God, what planet do they live on," she said.

She then joked, "I hope they leave their bodies to science. I would like to cut them open."

Mouthing the word "heart," she gestured that she wanted to know if they had hearts, suggesting that the Republicans' demands for a more "brutal" bill were heartless.

Her joke was criticized up by some right-wing and conservative outlets, including The Daily Caller and Pamela Gellar's blog.

Some conservative outlets called for her to resign.

Others misinterpreted her comments as an attack on Trump supporters.

And some said Democrats would be outraged if a Republican had made similar comments.
