So Trump is honoring the Navajo Indians that helped fight the Japanese in WW2.

He has a ceremony at the White House with a picture of Andrew Jackson hanging on the wall.

He makes a crack reference to Senator Elizabeth Warren about "Pocahontas".

Liz hears this and goes wild on MSNBC.



Hillaryous.

At a Navajo veterans' event, Trump makes 'Pocahontas' crack

President Donald Trump, during an event at the White House honoring Navajo code talkers Monday, referenced his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, "Pocahontas," a label he has long used about the Massachusetts Democrat.

"I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here," Trump said. "Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time ... longer than you -- they call her Pochahontas!"

He then turned to one of the code talkers behind him, put his left hand on the man's shoulder and said: "But you know what, I like you. You are special people."


Elizabeth Warren responds to Trump's "Pocahontas" remark

Are you actually enjoying Trump marginalize all Native Americans into one group at an event meant to honor them? Are you aware that neither Pocahontas nor Elizabeth Warren are Navajos and that the Navajos are WORLDS different than the Tsenacommacah (Pocahontas' tribe) or Cherokee (Warren's alleged tribe ancestry)?

Why don't you get up and go slap those veterans in the face why you are at it? But hey, he's making fun of Democrats, so what he said MUST be good. Right?

It's almost as if Trump willingly gives the media things to complain about so that the complaining spreads to the people.

Good job uniting America Trump. We all know the best way to unity is by saying divisive and inflammatory things constantly.

I'm offended because Trump yet again insulted veterans to score cheap political points. I'm not Native either, so I can't sympathize with that angle fully, but damn I'm at least be perturbed that Trump thinks that all Natives are the same people.

Here here! Those people need someone to get Social Justice for them. Someone like a Warrior. I'd ask if you know anyone who fits that bill, but I'd guess if you pass by a mirror, you'd see the guy I'm looking for.

Perhaps you should boycott Trump Hotels to show your SJW muscles.

Get out of here with your petty race card demagoguery.

Now no doubt mentioning his what is she rival, more or less interjecting his story into the affair, was in bad taste.

But the whole Pocahontas thing was him slapping her with a nickname to crack on her poor taste in her Stolen Valor esque claim that she's a native american herself; never letting her live it down. For that your SJW umbrella should have had you backing him up with that.

It's simpler than that. It was a WH event to honor these people, not mock them.

Um. No. You aren't the boss of me. Plus if you want me to do something, then I feel compelled to do the opposite.

I know the history of the Pocahontas thing. That event wasn't the time or place to bring it up. But just like the op, he's making fun of Democrats, so it's all good.

How did he insult veterans? By calling out a white lady who tried to exploit the fact that she has like 2% native blood for political gain?

Being that many Native American tribes suffered the same types of oppression and have formed unions together, you're really reaching by trying to play that card.

Yeah I know. And don't you know? Saying "But you know what, I like you. You are special people." makes his lack of tack just A-OK!

This is just sad. What makes it even sadder is that Warren really did pretend to be a Native American to get special treatment. In this case both sides are an embarrassment. Tweedledee talking about Tweedledum. The soap opera continues.

I have a CDIB card, citizenship card and work for the tribal government, and I'm not offended.

This popped up in conversation today with a coworker and it was blown off without a second thought. The attitude being, rather than anti/pro Trump was more like "Meh." He summed it up by saying that Trump needs to figure out the pipeline problem before gaining accolades from indigenous people, but otherwise he isnt directly opposing us.
