    I suppose we can take comfort in the fact that our president didn't cup his hand over his mouth to make stereotypical Native American "wah-wah" noises in front of his honored guests.

    What a fucking moron.
    This idiot has no plan other than to take every and any opportunity to insult ANY Democrat that might possibly be running in 2020?
    That's it, that's all he has?

    What a dumb fuck we have as president. He's so fucking stupid he doesn't realize it was a slam against Native Americans.

    That would be Sen Warrens challenger for Massachusetts senate. He already has campaign signs up that say "Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian."

    Spokesman for alliance of Native American tribes says Trump's commentary "smacks of racism" and president should "stop using our historical people of significance as a racial slur against one of his opponents.

    That is not going to go over well in MA. It's stupid and petty.

    We're two weeks away from Trump wearing blackface and singing "Mammy" at the White House Christmas Tree lighting.

    Trump — who spoke in front of a portrait of Andrew Jackson, the former president who signed the Indian Removal Act — did not mention Warren by name. But he frequently mocks her by calling her “Pocahontas,” a nickname he created during his 2016 presidential campaign. The derisive sobriquet pokes fun at Warren’s claim of Native American heritage when she was a law professor, which became a campaign issue during her 2012 Senate run.

    Warren, a frequent Trump critic, responded in an interview on MSNBC, noting that the White House event was supposed to “honor heroes.”

    “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,” Warren said.

    Talk about being tone deaf and ignorant of history.
