Arguably, she never HAS won a political contest. Her New York senate seat was essentially an arranged appointment to a guaranteed Dem seat and her primary win in 2016 was achieved by party aparatchiks sabotaging Bernie

The absolute madman...

Quote:
President Trump on Monday referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as “Pocahontas” at an event honoring Native American “code talkers” who served in World War II.

"You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said, standing beneath a portrait of former President Andrew Jackson. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”

Turning to the veterans, Trump said "but do you know what? I like you."

The president made the remark in the Oval Office standing beside three Navajos who helped the U.S. Marine Corps develop a secret code during the Second World War.

The three “code talkers” did not react to Trump’s remark.

Trump has repeatedly used the derisive nickname to refer to Warren, poking fun at her claim of Native American heritage.

“This was supposed to be an event to honor heroes, people who put it all on the line for our country,” Warren said later on MSNBC. “It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States can’t even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur.”

But Trump's top spokesperson defended his comment, saying "Pocahontas" is not a racial slur.

“I think what most people find offensive is Sen. Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

Trump during the event also referred to White House chief of staff John Kelly as “chief.”

“He’s the general and the chief,” the president said. “I said, how good were these code talkers? He said, ‘sir, you have no idea. You have no idea how great they were.’ ”

Calling a white woman "Pocahontas" who PRETENDED to be Native American to get hired is not racist. :lol:

Now, bringing it up at a ceremony for Code Talkers is a bit awkward....but that is Trump. :lol:

Sarah Sanders got a question in today’s presser about Trump’s comment.
She was asked whether it was insulting for Trump to have said that.

Her response (I’m paraphrasing) was that Sen. Warren insulted Native Americans by having lied to be a NA in an effort to get a prior job.

The White Man should not use Indian words, especially if they live in Manhattan or on the Potomac or in Massachusetts or Illinois or Michigan...it's cultural appropriation

White folks also shouldn't go around pretending to be black either (Sean King/ Rachel Dolozal)...wouldn’t that also be cultural appropriation?

Oh shit! :o

It's like a tag team of shitposters when the White House is talking to the news media.

Trump sets 'em up.. and Huckabee Sanders knocks them the fuck down! :lol: :lol:


I'd say some of the shit that comes out of Danklord Trump's mouth is too uncouth for the position, but it's past damn time some elected official started calling these manipulative Dem dickheads out on their bullshit.

Given a choice between a leader who says what he thinks, even if sometimes he says stupid shit, versus a leader who always thinks about what he says, and thus never says anything candid or sincere . . . I'll take the jabberwocky.
