  • Scaramucci defends Trump's'Pocahontas swipe

Monday afternoon, the president was leading a ceremony honoring Navajo code talkers who served in the military during World War II. "He had to throw in a racial slur".

Trump has repeatedly mocked Warren over her claim of Cherokee ancestry by referring to her as Pocahontas, who was the daughter of a powerful Native American leader in the 17th century colonial Virginia, whose legacy was romantisiced in the Disney movie of the same name.

In 2012, she was under scrutiny for her alleged Native American heritage as she listed herself as a minority in the directory of law professors, the Boston Globe reports. "They call her Pocahontas".

Trump, while addressing one member of the Navajo group, said: "I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people".

How much more will it take for all of the Trump apologists to realize that President Trump is historically ignorant, socially oblivious and downright insulting to the people he tried to honor? "Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. I like you. Because you are special", Trump continued, touching MacDonald on the shoulder.

The statement goes on to encourage the focus to remain on the Code Talkers and their contributions to defending the United States. They call her Pocahontas.' in reference to his nickname for Sen. Why did he feel the need to say something that is offensive to many people while honoring the Navajo code talkers? Navajo Nation Council Delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty on Monday called Trump's comment "deeply offensive and risky".

Warren herself additionally responded to Trump's dig, telling MSNBC, "It was deeply unfortunate that the President of the United States can not even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur". "I think that Senator Warren was very offensive when she lied about something to advance her career". 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.
