Yesterday President Trump referred to leftist fanatic Congressman Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas", a reference to her pretending she had Indian ancestry when she didn't, to get various jobs and admittance under racial "affirmative Action" programs.

In referring to it (as many people call her "Fauxcahontas"), he was reminding people of her duplicity.

Liberals in the media immediately ginned up their usual "outrage", claiming the remark was somehow "offensive" or "racist". Despite the fact that it was Warren herself who told people she was an Indian.

But none of them seemed to mind her actually faking her ancestry.

When people point out the truth about their lies, liberals are far more outraged than they are over the fact that they lied themselves.

And the liberals still can't figure out why nobody listens to them or takes them seriously any more.

To try.

Too bad.

It was offensive to use the slur at a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes who helped our country tremendously! Also, another deliberately offensive thing Trump did was have these men stand right in front of a picture of Andrew Jackson, who slaughtered countless Native Americans and removed them from their lands.

Ha, that would be awesome if I got paid. Alas, I don't. It's easy to hate him, he brings it on himself. He's a POS. You know it, I know it. You're simply to embarrassed to admit you voted for such a loser.

Trump's not worth the energy hate requires, but when he acts like a jackass expect him to labeled a jackass.

Get over it.

Exactly. These people are automatically offended and outraged at every utterance and every move Trump makes

How does one know that it is fake?


Didn't Mr. Trump also claim Native ancestry? Why did he refer to that 90 year olds' 'good genes' and then say that the press would have him around for a long time? Sounds like he was implying such.


Remember how Mr. Trump, in his first book, The Art of the Deal, claimed Swedish ancestry rather than admit German? True, he was repeating what his father had claimed, just like Ms. Warren was repeating what her parents said.

I can turn this around on you:

Right wing ragers are were in a frenzy over Sen. Elizabeth Warren's claims to be part Native American heritage; however, are totally cool with the President of the United States using the name of a famous Native American to denigrate Warren in front of Native American honorees.

You mean, it was offensive for Warren to tell people she was an Indian?

Or offensive for the President to point out the truth: That she had called herself an Indian?



These disgruntled liberal losers are SO confused and miserable.....
