Trump Makes “Pocahontas” Joke At White House Event Honoring Elderly WWII Navajo Code Talkers [VIDEO]

Trump just attacked Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” at a White House event honoring the elderly surviving members of the Navajo Code Talkers, who were recruited by the Marine Corps during World War II to deliver messages that the Japanese were unable to translate.

“You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas,” Trump said. His comments were met by total silence.

  • I got up and went to the living room to tell my husband this story, just so I could watch his reaction. It was the same as mine. He bowed his head and covered his face with his hands.

      This literally made me cry. I can’t believe that those amazing men were subjected Trump’s incredible ignorance and complete lack of respect or tact. It’s just so incredibly wrong.

    Yes, Donny, they “were here long before [you] were here” because they are old.
    Now, can you say what makes him “special”? Can you treat non-whites as individuals, rather than totems of a class? Can you treat veterans as individuals, rather than totems of a class (which you weaseled out of joining)? Can you treat fucking anyone as an individual?

        This isn’t dementia. Dementia is a legitimate reason for behaving oddly.

        Trump is a Nazi. He gets no quarter for his appalling bigotries.

          A demented Nazi. He used to be a coherent Nazi.

          • ColdCountry

            WHEN was he EVER coherent???

          • pch1013

            Well, if you look at 80s footage of him being interviewed, he was at least able to compose complete sentences that didn’t consist entirely of right-wing tropes.

          • ColdCountry

            Well, if we’re going that far back, he was probably more coherent as a five year old. I though you meant since the start of this nightmare.

          Trump/turd must always be ‘ad hominem’.
          He can never argue the merits of a point.
          It’s always Liddle Corker, or Little Marco , or crazy Ted, or lying Hillary, or low energy Jeb….and on and on.
          He must always belittle.
          He is just too stupid to engage in the issue, any issue.

      Of all the places in the White House where he could honor them, he chose to do it in front of Jackson’s portrait. Maybe he can find a portrait of Hitler to stand in front of when he decides to honor some Jewish people.

        that is absolutely shocking. The f ucker is either a c unt or demented or both.

        • Bj Lincoln

          Both and more. This is why I tweet him every day to remind him what a ‘fucking moron’ he is. I have NEVER been so disrespectful to a President in thought or word before. This man is not my President as far as I’m concerned. There is a lot of us that feel this way.

        • Carrie Scott

          I thought is just fucking stupid.

          • JackFknTwist

            So who set up this presentation deliberately in front of the painting of Andrew Jackson, ( in the corner of the room, )who killed most of the Native Americans?
            I would say it was Stephen Miller, Bannon’s succubus. He is a Nazi and a white fascist.

            And doing this presentation in front of Andrew Jackson is a message to his fellow white fascist supremacists. It is a message to Elizabeth Warren also, “look what we did to your nativists, Pochahantis.”
            Even I get that message 3,000 miles away.

          • Rhode Izaguirre

            That is my suspicion as well. Actually, I don’t believe 45 knows enough American history to choose that location. It is just the type of planning expected of that wormy Stephen Miller!

      • penpal

        Not me, not with Trump in office. Maybe these poor guys were uninformed prior to this visit but they’re woke AF now. Trump has repeatedly mocked Native Americans and the Republican party as a whole has shit on their requests for clean water and pipeline-free lands.

            Hating on a Nazi enabler is not being misogynistic. Hating on Hillary for being a woman is, however.

            Some idiots never understand the difference.

        • FAEN

          Yeah I read that earlier today. So disgusted.

        • Matt Henley

          I don’t agree with her position at all, but I read the interview and didn’t see where she said that. She said that she felt that NY was a safe place for a protest vote because Hillery (who she can’t stand now) would win it regardless. Much like my vote (bernie in primary, hillery in election) doesn’t count because TX will go to the repugs.

        • FAEN

          Let’s not insult doggies. They’re lovely 😊

        • Paul

          Plenty of comments by BernieBots / Russian Trolls getting upvoted too.

    • We let the Russians make him President even though Hillary received at least three million more votes and probably more. I did not think the Russians and the Right bought the election last year at this time. I do now btw. We were HAD! And they are going to do it again unless we stop it.

  • Leo

    This is about the CFPB. No question.

    I’m not going to anguish or rail to the heavens about any of this. I’m not.

    The Navajo Code Talkers had too much optimism in this man possibly delivering like a president, or pretending to. I empathize with those hero’s for thinking that. That’s it.

  • gaycuckhubby

    OT… what the holy fuck is this? This is the Representative who brought impeachment articles against Trump
    https://twitter.com/mikedebonis/status/935237800399687680

    • Any hint of impropriety in political office, particularly among progressive elected officials and those who represent progressive constituencies, now requires explanations. They can no longer be ignored. What we will see are more efforts to “nip accusations in the bud” before they cause damage which, by themselves, may cause damage in a hypersensitive environment. In other words, many politicians will be “coming clean” with information that no one had any idea about in the first place, or even realized was a problem to begin with.

      • gaycuckhubby

        The bit about the money was weird though

        • Yeah, Republicans usually end up spending taxpayer dollars paying for it.

        • pch1013

          Makes perfect sense – because otherwise fake news outlets like Fox and Breitbart would accuse Green of paying her hush money.

          As it is, they’re bound to insist that she was somehow coerced into signing this.

        • -M-

          It said there was no money involved. They seem to want that to be clear in light of the sexual harassment claims that have been paid off with congressional funds.

          • gaycuckhubby

            It appears that years ago he admitted to a sexual relationship with one of his aides. Months later she said he forced her to have sex and sued him for sexual assault. He threatened to counter-sue but before anything went to court they both signed a document saying that everything was consensual and nothing happened.

          • -M-

            You asked why they brought up the issue of money.

            Clearly in light of recent reports and suspicions they want to get the facts of their story out before someone else brings up what they said then and make it clear that there was no payoff and especially no money from a congressional hush fund.

          • gaycuckhubby

            It makes sense.
            In the end transparency is a good thing. And I think he will retain his seat.

    • Trump. He is going to go down as one of the bottom 4 joining
      -Corrupt Warren Harding (who had the good sense to die in office at the posh Palace Hotel in San Francisco after two years in office in 1923). I think though that the corruption in the Trump administration makes the Teapot Dome Scandal look like child’s play.
      -Utterly ineffective James Buchanan who did nothing to prevent the Civil War — he left office in 1861 – and supported slavery even though he was a Pennsylvanian
      -Andrew Johnson, impeached and kept in office by one vote, did nothing to help the rights of the newly freed slaves. He replaced Lincoln and was the bane of the Republicans in Congress when being a Republican in Congress was being on the correct side of human rights (unlike now).
      This is a pretty low group.

      • SelectFromWhere

        At least Buchanan was a ‘Mo, though…

      • Right now, if any President that Trump resembles, it is John Tyler. If Trump’s approval ratings are this bad in 2020, he will have a challenger, a possibility that he won’t either run or lose the GOP nomination in 2020..

      • Cuberly Deux

        Ok, I may get slapped for this but, it’s ok she’s wrong. That headline sort of irks me really. Why the need to get her being shamed on record?

        Yes, she’s the last person I’d go to for political advice. And I’ll still watch and appreciate her work.

        • I see your point Cuberly and consider your an ally. Hillary Clinton is still being made out to be the bogeyman (person) of 2016 by Trump. And if some on the left join on his bandwagon by saying that it is better that Trump, and not Hillary was elected, which is what she is saying, it is understandable that some of us here (like myself) will get infuriated. I see millions of children being kicked off health care for starters. I frankly would like to see the matter just ignored — Bernie and Hillary supporters need to get together and not argue the election all over again. But anyone who gives an interview to the Guardian and says this is bound to cause anger. Here is her interview in the Guardian. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/nov/26/susan-sarandon-i-thought-hillary-was-very-dangerous-if-shed-won-wed-be-at-war

          • Cuberly Deux

            No worries Eddi, I’ve pretty much resolved to work on GOTV efforts. I have serious fatigue when it comes to revisiting the purity police. I’m more concerned about the boots on the ground people that actually DO the work to get sane policy moving. From dog catcher on up we have to start grooming the future.

            I saw the interview with Sarandon and I just shook my head.

        • gaycuckhubby

          I think people are angry at her not because we think she swayed the election much, if at all. but because she was representative of a minority of liberals who wouldn’t face the fact that we have a choice to make in the election

          • Cuberly Deux

            She definitely sort of became the figurehead of the purity police, I’ll grant you that. And I’ll admit that she pissed me off, so many of her claims were just whoop-de-doo detached from the gravity of the election.

            I think I’ve reached maximum infighting though. Like I told Eddi, I just want to work. We have a lot to do, last thing I want to do or have time to do is beat my head against a wall attempting to change the opinion of someone whose wealth insulates her so completely.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Yes Ma’am! Count me in!

        • The_Wretched

          “Moderate Dems” are copying the republican play book and need a target for hate. Hating “cross check” and “unauditable machines” or “gerrymandering” is too abstract (and accurate but they don’t seem eager to fix the problems) so they have picked “the left” as their hate target. It’s depressing how well this hate-messaging has captured the Loyalist Dems here.

          • Cuberly Deux

            From my own experience I’ve definitely had my run ins with the far left. Locking horns online isn’t getting the work done. I just don’t think savaging each and every niche or shaming them is going to get us anywhere.

          • The_Wretched

            My complaint centers around how the loon fringe 1-3% is uncritically lumped in with the 40%+ of the base that’s ‘left’.

          • Cuberly Deux

            Well, to be fair, the far loon fringe does tend to get a fair amount of ink. The narrative of “Dems in disarray” tends to be a knee-jerk reflex a fair number of outlets like to push.

            “Dems in disarray” I’m not pushing that, however.

      Exactly. I wouldn’t tolerate this from a “friend” or acquaintance or supervisor or dude on the street. Anything from a trip to HR to writing them off as a human being would occur.

      So why, exactly, does anybody tolerate it from this guy? Strip him of honor, respect, and any consideration every time he opens his mouth and insults somebody.

    Ok. Fact checking time… did Elizabeth Warren lie about or misrepresent her heritage to gain access?

    • Treant

      If memory serves, Warren does have some percentage of American Indian blood.

      Of course, I’m a lineal descendant of William Penn and you don’t hear me going on about that very minor blood tie, so I guess you could play that one either way depending on how Mean Girls you want to be. In both cases, the blood tie is present.

      • Lantor
        • Zeldacat

          I suspect there are a lot more people with small percentages of said ancestry than will ever find out. You go back far enough and there might not be records but there were plenty of horny humans.

      • gaycuckhubby

        So Warren try to use a program set aside to help minorities advance even though her minority status is highly questionable?
        no wonder this plays bad in Middle America. These are voters that are already hesitant about social programs that favor minority classes, and to find out that a privileged white person was misusing them plays into every fear they have.
        Unrelated, Pocahontas is definitely a racial slur and Trump needs to be called out every time he uses it

        Edit. I am learning more about the controversy and it doesn’t seem as clear cut as I stated. I apologize. Read Beccas comments for actual facts.

        • clay

          There is no evidence that Warren tried to use a program set aside to help minorities.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Then when/why/where did she recount her heritage?
            I’m honestly trying to learn because I’ve never heard Warren speak about this or defend this.

          • clay

            Family stories come up a lot of ways in academia– examples in class, examples in faculty meetings, getting to know each other, . . .

          • gaycuckhubby

            she should just point to the ancestry.com advertisement where a man thought that he was German and and participated in lots of German cultural events and after DNA testing learned he was Irish. this should be something that is easy for Warren to rectify. I’m a pretty high information voter compared to the rest of the populace and I thought she had used it to get into college and for advancement. this is where you can’t be afraid of trump and to attack him for this

          • clay

            When she entered college, Native ancestry would probably have only gotten her into Haskell Indian College or the Sante Fe School of Art. By the time she graduated, and was teaching at Harvard, it was the school that would have been touting their “diversity”, not her.

          • cleos_mom

            She already made it clear that this is based on family stories, and that she didn’t seek any advantage from it. A number of people on this thread also made it clear. In what alternate universe would her truckling to the likes of the Dotard and Talkradiowingnuttia produce anything positive?

        • Treant

          Six on one, half dozen on the other. I wouldn’t call myself William Penn–the blood tie there is actually much more dilute at 1 part in 16384 if I’m winging the math in my head correctly and not missing a link on the other side of the tree as well. However, it’s completely accurate to say that I am a descendant.

          It’s completely accurate to say she has a blood tie as well, and if the program in question is applicable to people with NA great-great-great-grandparents, then I don’t see the problem.

          Middle America is inclined to see a problem with anybody getting any advantage that they, themselves, did not also receive. I actually see more problems with that. 🙂

    • clay

      Without evidence that it either advanced her career or that it was intended to.

      BTW, fuck you, Sarah Sanders, for implying that the career advancement of American Indians is some how “easy” compared to “normal” people.

    • No, she did not. She merely recounted she’d been told she had Native American heritage in her ancestors. It was called into question…then it so happens it was verified. She’s 1/32.

      • gaycuckhubby

        So she did not participate in any program that was set aside for the benefit of Native Americans?

        • Helen Damnation™

          Correct.

        • -M-

          Subheading from the 2012 Atlantic article linked above by Lantor.

          The Democratic Senate candidate can’t back up family lore that she is part Indian — but neither is there any evidence that she benefited professionally from these stories.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Ok. So it was just getting facts wrong? And not benefiting from it? Why on Earth is she not forcefully combating this and why is she letting him get away with this narrative? She’s the Democratic Firebrand

          • clay

            Pick your battles– she prefers to battle over financial policy that effects middle- and working-class Americans. She’s one of the few Senators who will talk about the poor, at all, let alone without condemning them.

          • gaycuckhubby

            I guess I can respect that. But if she wants to be a national politician she will eventually have to deal with this. And it doesn’t help to have it out there for years and years

          • -M-

            At some point she repeated family legend about their ancestry because she thought it was an interesting or informative factoid about herself. It may or may not be factually true but she didn’t try to get a minority scholarship or anything.

            And she does hit back at him regularly on policy and the use of Pocahontas as a slur.

          • gaycuckhubby

            oh I agree, she hits him back harder than probably any other Senator. I just never heard her address the facts behind the Pocahontas slur

          • The_Wretched

            Yes, truly it’s all her fault. Keep going. Say more. Please. don’t stop now.

        • Jamie Brewer

          Elizabeth Warren has too much class to piggy back on affirmative action programmes when not needed. i had a coworker who was always so proud to be 100% Italian. He always made a big deal of it till he was working on getting into “skilled trades.” All of a sudden he was a “minority” because his grandmother came from Puerto Rico. That entitled him to extra perks to boost his “testing scores.” He lost any respect I ever had towards him…

          • gaycuckhubby

            Cool. Glad to hear she never misrepresented her heritage

    I don’t remember when I didn’t understand the word “shameless.” Until little Donnie appeared on the scene, I thought it was a perfectly fine word for a certain group of people. But now, I think we need an entirely new word, since the old one is inadequate to express the complete and utter lack of anything remotely resembling shame the biological organism occupying the White House is capable of feeling or showing.

    • Treant

      I’m relatively shameless in the sense that if you wanna see me do something or have me do something in the sack, if I’m physically capable, I probably consider it a turn-on. Certainly I’m generally happy to comply at the very least.

      This goes beyond shameless. It’s more a flagrant and blatant lack of any mental filter whatsoever.

I found out I was part Irish (I had no idea) by taking this test — the rest of the results matched my family tree (lithuanian- that part of Europe). This explains why I like St. Patty’s day so much.

    What’s become clear as the noonday sun to me over the past 18+ months is that there’s a significant part of the public that doesn’t see anything wrong with Trump. The reason, I’ve concluded, is that Trump’s vulgarity, brutishness, ignorance, lack of thinking ability, etc., is shared by his supporters. Perhaps this seems obvious. But, I haven’t wanted to conclude such things about large numbers of the public. Now I feel that the conclusion can’t be avoided. We should take his supporters at face value when they so often say ‘Trump is saying things that I’ve thought all along’.

    His turning to these men who gave their service to this country saying “I like you” and calling them “special” betrayed his sense of privileged superiority, his lack of knowledge, his limited of vocabulary, and his all-encompassing hubris. The Navajo men who suffered this abuse from the president were supremely gracious and dignified. I wish they had turned to him and said “fuck you.”
