Senator, and presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is most famous for lying about her Native American heritage in order to get into college. This is what prompted President Donald Trump to call her “Pocahontas,” a name which has stuck. Warren has accused the White House of favoring the rich with his tax bill even though it lowers the burden on the workforce. She has even inflated a story about an instructor who once flirted with her, as the Conservative Daily Post has shown.
Now Warren is claiming that the name Pocahontas is a “racial slur,” according to the Free Beacon. She is still out there pretending to be a real Indian even when the whole world knows better. She even said that the White House will not “silence her,” as if that was somehow the goal, rather than to expose her.
Trump is not slandering Native Americans when he calls her that. Instead, he is insulting her for lying and claiming to be an American Indian when she is not.
The Senator did lie, after all, and take college money that was due to Native Americans for herself. If anyone has offended the Native Americans, one can imagine that it was her, not Mr. Trump for calling her out on it.
While speaking to the code talkers who helped win the World War II for the U.S., Trump said, “I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. 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.”
While he is certainly correct, the tribes that were here were slaughtering one another in massive numbers long before Europeans got here, too. That is why they could not defeat the settlers, so really, it is not like peace prevailed until the white man showed up. Therefore, the president was merely making a joke, offending no one (unless they are a PC snowflake who he wasn’t speaking to).
Warren did not miss a chance to pander to the American Indian population, however. She said, “This was supposed to be an event to honor heroes. People who put it all on the line for our country, and people who, because of their incredible work, saved the lives of countless Americans and our allies.”
Clearly, Ms. Pocahontas has never heard of opening a speech with a joke or two.
Then again, Democrats are the ever-offended party of the U.S., as the Senator shows by adding, “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 a racial slur. Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he’s going to shut me up with it. It hadn’t worked in the past. It is not going to work in the future.”
While trying vainly to paint herself as a Trump target, the truth is, he just wants the world to know what she is really like long before she tries to dethrone him in 2020. She is a lying, dishonest, cheater. There is nothing wrong with pointing that out since she is currently a Senator, either.
The more that voters hear the truth, the more apt they are to decide that they may not even want her in that role in Massachusetts any longer.
