Senator Elizabeth Warren has used President Trump’s recent Pocahontas comment in several fundraising emails but the moniker may be more of a problem for Warren than it is for Trump.
“You might have heard that Donald Trump likes to call me ‘Pocahontas.’ He does it on Twitter, at rallies and even in official White House meetings,” a fundraising email read, calling it the “very first of gutter politics.”
The emails came after President Trump stamped Warren with the Pocahontas slam at a Navajo Code Talker event in the Oval Office on Monday.
“You are very special people,” President Trump has told to a group of a WWII code talkers. “You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who says that she was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas. But, you already know that. I like you. Because you are so special.”
President Trump has repeatedly referred to Warren as the legendary Native American woman ever since she was caught falsely claiming Cherokee ancestry and minority ethnic status to help her land a position at Harvard University.
Warren had bizarrely claimed that the President’s use of the term is actually a “racial slur.” The senator dishonestly claimed Native American ancestry to gain an advantage over other candidates for a job at Harvard. The President reminded the nation of Warren’s insensitive cultural appropriation for personal gain.
