Was this a Trump misstep, or an intentional move to bring potential 2020 presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren, into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
Everyone is now talking about POTUS Trump’s “Pocahontas” comment, and unfortunately for Warren, everyone is examining her “cultural appropriation”, lying about her Native American heritage to advance her career all the way to the US Senate.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended POTUS Trump’s “Pocahontas” comment after the liberal mainstream media implied President Trump was being “offensive”, using a “racial slur” when honoring code talkers.
Via The Gateway Pundit…
Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren got super triggered after President Trump slammed her Monday calling her Pocahontas while honoring Native American code talkers.
“You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas,” Trump told Native American code talkers during a ceremony.
Sanders took issue, not with Trump’s statement, but the fact that Warren faked her heritage to get ahead using various affirmative action mechanisms…
“I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career,” Sanders said.
Fake News CNN’s Jake Tapper was triggered after Trump issued his “Pocahontas” comment.
“POTUS called Sen. Warren “Pocahontas” in April 2017. The bi-partisan National Congress of the American Indians said “we cannot and will not stand silent when our Native ancestors, cultures, and histories are used in a derogatory manner for political gain.””
Dr. Sebastian Gorka also weighed in on the side of Trump, slamming Tapper and his tweet…
“But lying about your ancestry to get into an Ivy League College and land a cushy 200K No-Show job is OK, right?”
