During an event at the White House honoring Navajo code talkers Monday, President Trump cracked an Elizabeth Warren joke. He called her “Pocahontas.” This isn’t anything new. He’s called her that multiple times in the past. I prefer “Fauxcahontas,” but whatever. (I also saw one commenter calling her “Sitting Bullsh*t. Hilarious.)
“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 Pocahontas!”
Look. I understand that it probably wasn’t the best moment for an Elizabeth Warren joke, but it was NOT A RACIAL SLUR. Yet, MSM continues to characterize it as such. Sarah Sanders had the best response of all.
“I think Sen. Warren was very offensive when she lied about something to advance her career,” Sanders told reporters. “I don’t understand why no one is asking about that.”
Neither do I, Sarah! If anything, they should be mad at Warren for LYING about her heritage and BENEFITTING from the lie. Cultural appropriating weirdos get mad at white people for wearing braids. But Warren can FAKE HER ENTIRE HERITAGE and make a career out of it, and that’s fine.
How do they rationalize that? Someone please explain that to me.
ANYWAY. Warren is so OFFENDED and HUMILIATED over this BLATANT RACIAL SLUR that she’s…using it to raise money.

Once again, Elizabeth Warren is using her fake Indian heritage to advance her career. She just can’t stop.
