On Monday, President Donald Trump referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as “Pocahontas” during an event he was hosting at the White House honoring Navajo Code Talkers who served in WWII. Warren wasted no time in firing back, albeit hypocritically.
Honestly, I believe Trump often makes comments because he knows it will drive the Left crazy. This occasion was no exception.
Trump was thanking the Native American Veterans for providing such an invaluable service to the United States and then he said, after pausing and appearing to hold back a chuckle:
“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.”
It was apparent from the expression on the faces of the Native Americans that they didn’t understand Trump’s joke and showed no reaction.
But Trump’s comment stoked the fires and the White House Press reporters took aim.
First to take the hit for the President was White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders who responded to the question from a reporter about the comment.
When asked about why Trump would use a “racial slur” (a term Warren attached to the word “Pocahontas’ in a television interview prior to Sanders taking the podium), Sanders said:
“Pocahontas” is not a racial slur.
I think what most people find offensive is Sen. Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career.”
Warren previously stated before Sanders’ appearance, that “Trump wasn’t going to shut her up” with such comments.
I thought this was about honoring the Native Americans and yet Warren tried to turn the focus onto herself.
It would have been a perfect chance for her to apologize to Native Americans everywhere for claiming to be a Native American when reportedly she isn’t.

Twitter also couldn’t resist pointing out the absurdity of Warren being upset about Trump’s comment when they see Warren’s false statement about her heritage as being far worse.
Joe Walsh pointed out the Left’s hypocrisy by tweeting: “The media is outraged that President Trump has again called Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas.” Yet they weren’t outraged when it was revealed Elizabeth Warren lied about being a Native American just so she could advance her career. Damn hypocrites.”
The media is outraged that President Trump has again called Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas."
Yet they weren't outraged when it was revealed Elizabeth Warren lied about being a Native American just so she could advance her career.

Stock Monster tweeted: “Watch Senator Warren lie about her Heritage in such an Outrageous fashion & then tell me she doesn’t deserve the Pocahontas title —She claims her high cheek bones were all she needed to steal Harvard entry from another REAL Native American.

And finally, Makada reminds Warren of her “cultural appropriation.”: “The left is calling Trump a racist for calling out fake Native American Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, when SHE is the one who pretends to be Native American… Isn’t that cultural appropriation?”

Warren and other liberal Left never cease to amaze with their hypocrisy.
