Today, at an event honoring Native American veterans (“code talkers”), our addled Bigot in Chief suddenly started rambling about Elizabeth Warren, and right in front of the veterans, called her “Pocahontas.”
Seriously, what the hell is WRONG with this guy?
WATCH: Elizabeth Warren responds to Trump’s “Pocahontas” remark on @MSNBC:”It is deeply unfortunate that the President of the United States cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur.” pic.twitter.com/au1QntxDzR
Spokesman for alliance of Native American tribes says Trump’s commentary “smacks of racism” and president should “stop using our historical people of significance as a racial slur against one of his opponents.”https://t.co/iBTxWWxLwF
