Trump just called Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas" while honoring Native American code talkers

The president has frequently called Warren "Pocahontas" as a jab at her self-proclaimed Native American ancestry. There is a good chance that you are going to be subjected to racist jokes from an old man who can't find his penis, nor hold it because he has really tiny hands. She says: "He's wrong".

Warren responded to the president, calling the comments a "racial slur".

She told the Associated Press in 2012 that her parents told her (and her siblings) that they had Native American heritage.

After stating that the ceremony was meant to highlight the accomplishments and heroism of the code talkers, Begaye criticized the president for undermining the whole thing.

Referring to the concept of Trump's words being a "racial slur", Sanders said: "I think that's a ridiculous response". "As Native Americans, we are proud people who have taken care of this land long before there was the United States of America and we will continue to fight for this Nation". World War II Navajo Code Talker and Iwo Jima survivor Thomas Begay is one of the last surviving code talkers. "This is a young lady, a Native American woman that played a critical role in the life of this nation, and to use that person in that way is unnecessary and is being culturally insensitive".

During a White House event Monday, Trump revived past mocking comments he's made about Democratic Sen.

Two Second World War Navajo "code talkers" stood at the podium, with a third seated in a wheelchair as Mr Trump made the remarks, which were greeted with awkward silence. "What Trump displayed today was an embarrassment to our values and a disgraceful insult to the heroes of our history".

"He talked down to Peter MacDonald and the other fearless Navajo as if they were children", he told VOA, expressing fear that this may have detracted from Code Talker Peter MacDonald's speech. And to put in a slur that has become racial - Pocahontas - didn't belong there.

"Look, I think that Sen".

He started accusing Warren of lying about her heritage and called her "Pocahontas" at a campaign rally in June, 2016, according to the Washington Post, when Warren was campaigning in support of Hilary Clinton.
