President Trump has used a lot of disparaging nicknames since bursting on the political scene, but none have been more hilariously fitting than his moniker for Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren. It’s the perfect insult because it simultaneously has almost nothing to do with why Warren is such a disastrous senator and yet everything to do with why no self-respecting American should pay her the least bit of attention. It undermines her self-styled seriousness, points out how she tried to defraud Harvard, and makes her a laughingstock before she ever opens her mouth. If you were to rank Trump’s insults from best to worst, “Pocahontas” has a fighting shot at the number one spot.
Now, Trump has been using this term for nearly two years and the liberal media has tried all along to get the rest of us to feel shocked and dismayed by it to no avail. But only now, after Trump used the term at the White House this week, are they seriously trying to convince us that there’s something racist about the nickname. And of course, leading the charge is the Native American princess herself.
“There he was, at a ceremony to honor Native Americans,” Warren said. “And President Trump couldn’t even make it through a ceremony to honor these men without throwing in a racial slur.”
As though Trump had come into the ceremony, looked around, and said, “Where my injuns at?”
No, of course that’s not what happened. Rather, in the middle of the ceremony, Trump merely pointed out that there is a senator running around making a false claim of being a Native American. We’ll refrain from commenting on whether this was the best possible use of his speaking time or the best possible venue for such an observation, but that’s Trump. He abhors political correctness and he doesn’t have the slightest understanding of why people get so outraged over the silliest things. And he has that in common with tens of millions of Americans, who don’t even know what they can SAY anymore without getting in some kind of hot water.
The only way we could possibly agree that Trump was using a “racial slur” would be for us to accept that Warren IS, in fact, an American Indian. And that is something we do not accept, since there is no evidence to suggest that she is, and also, because she isn’t. So in a way, this is the exact opposite of a racial slur. It was a nudge and a wink to ACTUAL Native Americans, saying, “This idiot Warren is a fraud, but you guys are the real deal.”
We love it, we hope Trump never stops using it, and we hope the left-wing media keeps trying to make more out of it than there is. The more they try to bury this president with their political correctness, the more powerful he becomes.
You’d think they would have learned that by now.
