Pocahontas? So What?

Left leaning press crying their liberal tears again, butt hurt by Trump referring to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas.... So what???? OK, maybe could have made it more clear in front of the WW2 Navaho Code Talkers. What I got out of it was just reminding us how Warren took advantage of the system by procuring mortgage loans by claiming to be a Native American. Awful woman. Another cheating, lying politician. (most are, both sides of the aisle, IMO) But she is dangerous and needs to be taken down a few notches, sooner than later. Eff her for claiming it a racial slur. She was being called out! Nothing but a DNA blood test is going to prove whether she is, or was just lying..... God I hate that woman.....

Oh it gets better Jeff....To close this "Breaking News" story, the reporters are even more outraged that the ceremony to honor our Native American heroes was done right beneath the portrait of Andrew Jackson! And you know what a bad man he was.... What he did to the Indians and all.... Cripes, don't we ALL have more to do than this death by a thousand cuts?

The Andrew Jackson part was irony, Trump's comments were those of an idiot. Are you not grasping that?

Prone to idiotic statements and timing? Yes. Was not the time. But calling her out and pressuring her for what she is needs being done. Again, he needed to have been more clear. And preferably at another time. But in the big picture, not worthy of the reaction.

He made it all about himself Instead of honoring some Heroes. Similar to what he did at the CIA event a few days after being elected president. He's not fit to be president of the US.

I swear to god I am convinced that all of Trumps antics are scripted. It’s too predictable. Why would this be scripted? To polarize the American people and distract them from the real problems that this country faces.

Neither you or I would have gone there regardless of our thoughts...that is the bigger issue.

Warren is absolutely disgusting. Everything about her is ugly, she just gets uglier and uglier. It's almost as if she wasn't born to human parents, but as if she was conceived by hypocrisy.

She attacks banks for making money off student loans, but it's OK when she gets rich teaching one class, at a job she got by lying about her heritage.

She makes Hilary look cute and cuddly, she really does. And brother, that's saying something.

And I find it sad that Trump couldn't honor these guys without taking a swipe at her. She doesn't deserve to be brought up when talking about these amazing heroes. But that's pure, vintage, classic Trump. I don't like it.

He's also not even a little bit wrong for wanting to attack her, but not in that setting.

I thought it was hysterical. Right up there with the tweet about the Short Fat guy in NK. Some times he is comic gold.

To be clear here, I voted against Hillary. Period. Mission accomplished. So now on to the collateral damage. Similar to the previous two terms, I am praying we can survive the four years without too much more damage being done. I am a right leaning independent contractor who feels the Dems over tax the very core of the economy, small business! The current POTUS makes me cringe. His lack of tact and respect for others is dangerous and embarrassing. But instead of su cking it up, as I did during Obama years, his detractors are contributing to the fracturing of our people! But don't put me in the supporter/minion camp. The lesser of two evils is pretty awful.

What's to say that hasn't already been said before, he just continues to be an embarrassment, who hasn't he disrespected at this point? I'm surprised he didn't follow that inappropriate comment up by stating I think you redskins should kick her off the reservation. He literally has no control of his twisted mind and sick inappropriate sense of humor; if he even considers it humor.

It is pretty funny listening to him. Makes you wonder what type of people voted for him (evangelicals LOL). I mentioned to my wife last night that I wonder what type of woman Melania was to even sit w/him for 10 min. on the first date w/o getting up and walking away.

After 8 years of your snarky whining this is nothing.

Oh. it is grasped. One idiot flake calling out another idiot fake.

Terrible setting, saying that in front of those people, Code Talkers, men that served with distinction (that many on the left probably likes only because they were victims).

Hilarious yet unsurprising that the media calls Trump out on it rather than years of Chief Sh!tt!ng Bull for lying about it in the first place.

Of course it did. But I would have advised him, if you want to throw elbows at Warren (and that's a very worthwhile hobby), don't do it at that ceremony, do it later. This is who he is. If my IRA is going to increase 25% for each of the next 3 years (hopefully 8), I can tolerate his putting his being a jerk, especially if his target is a gargoyle like Princess Lie-awatha.

Huh? Who is saying that we should all behave the way Trump does?

You don't have to accept it, because no one is selling it.

I hear you, I definitely do. But when holding a ceremony to pay tribute to people who made incredible sacrifices (especially when, in their case, it's not like America had treated them all that great), it might have been more, I don't know...respectful? somber? To keep it just about the heroes they were there to honor.

Believe me, I'm not one to come to her defense...she deserves a whole lot worse than Trump's insults.

"who hasn't he disrespected at this point? "

How's your IRA doing?

"He literally has no control of his twisted mind and sick inappropriate sense of humor"

No, he doesn't.

It's embarrassing, I don't know that it's dangerous. For 8 years, Obama tried making bad people like us by being nicer to them. Did that work? Not really. Obama had some foreign policy success, but it wasn't based on his being friendlier than Bush was.

That is true, that's exactly what it is. Since election night, there has been immeasurable insanity from the left. To say "he is living rent free in their heads", is the understatement of the century. They literally cannot deal with him. Well, they attacked McCain (and it worked because he wouldn't fight back), they attacked Romney (and it worked because he wouldn't fight back), so once again, how can the liberals be shocked that now they are facing someone who has no issue with putting on his brass knuckles and rolling in the mud with them. And he's better at it than they are. He doesn't let them get under his skin, and everything he does, gets under their skin. He literally cannot lose.

The statement was inappropriate for that occasion. He should have used it at another press opportunity.

Warren has been constantly criticizing Trump - she has a bad case of TDS. Payback is a bitch and unlike most presidents Trump will not waste an opportunity to call her or others out on there lies. All in all it was a real bad day for Warren - she is also about to potentially loose her baby the CFPB.
