Trump makes 'Pocahontas' slur at Native American ceremony

Native American Leader Slams Trump For 'Culturally Insensitive' Pocahontas Remark

Trump mocks political rival calling her Pocahontas

Once again, Donald Trump has only made a fool of himself and shown the world that he is still a juvenile in so many ways by calling Senator Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas" in front of Navajo veterans of World War II.

When asked whether it was a racial slur, Sanders said that was "ridiculous".

Senator Warren has maintained that she is of Native American heritage, but critics are divided as whether or not that claim has actually advanced her career.

She told the Associated Press in 2012 that her parents told her (and her siblings) that they had Native American heritage. "But you know what, I like you".

But White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders defended the president's comments after being grilled by reporters over why the president felt the need to say something "offensive" during the press briefing on Monday.

One voice that has been missing in the debate has been that of the code talkers honored in the ceremony. "Before we held the ceremony, we consulted with a number of other white experts, and we all agreed that Andrew Jackson was great", she said.

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". "You are special people". Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he is going to shut me up with it.
