President Trump shook liberal media by name-calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’ once again. The reason Trump finds this nickname necessary to mention is due to the fact that Warren openly lied about having Native American roots.
“You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump told the veterans, “although we have a representative in Congress who, they say, was here a long time ago. They call her ‘Pocahontas.’”
Media burst out in revolt at Trump’s move and labeled his comment as a “racial slur.”
“It is deeply unfortunate that the President of the United States cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur. Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he is going to shut me up with it. It hasn’t worked out in the past, it isn’t going to work out in the future,” Warren told MSNBC in light of the remarks.
Ed Markey, who is Warren’s close friend and coworker, joined her defense team and said Trump’s comment “disparages the Native American war heroes.”
What @realDonaldTrump said about my partner @SenWarren is a slur. It disparages the Native American war heroes, standing right beside the President, who risked their lives to protect his right to make such a disgusting comment.

As if on cue, political commentator Dana Loesch took a swing at Markey, stating Warren was deceptive about her heritage for “professional advancement.”
Your partner lied about being indigenous for professional advancement and spurned outreach from actual nation representatives. The portrait behind them was the founder of your party who sent indigenous Americans on the trail of genocide. https://t.co/iAvpex1IwH

“Your partner lied about being indigenous for professional advancement and spurned outreach from actual nation representatives. The portrait behind them was the founder of your party who sent indigenous Americans on the trail of genocide,” she tweeted.
Loesch was referring to the portrait of former President Andrew Jackson — the believed forerunner of the movement that would ultimately become the Democratic Party. She said she learned about her heritage from her parents and grandparents.
As per the Washington Examiner, Warren had dismissed claims that she identified as Native American at the beginning of her career to get a job at Harvard Law School.
Warren argued that she became familiar with her heritage through her parents and grandparents.
But despite her claim, Mr. Trump has frequently raised concerns about the credibility of her assertions. It was during last year’s presidential campaign that Trump first started calling Warren ‘Pocahontas.’
Last June, Mr. Trump said during a phone interview with NBC News that the Massachusetts Democrat “made up her heritage, which I think is racist. I think she’s a racist, actually, because what she did was very racist.”
Trump has also called Warren ‘Pocahontas’ on Twitter.
Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept.
