Skip to comments.‘Unreal:’ ABC Flips Out Over Trump’s ‘Racial Slur’ Against Sen. Warren
Posted on 11/28/2017 10:45:05 AM PST by Kaslin
At a Navajo veterans ceremony over the weekend, President Trump made a brief joke at Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warrens expense, calling her "Pocahontas," that left the media practically foaming at the mouth.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Matthew Dowd and Meghan McCain perhaps had the most overdramatic analysis of the comment, slamming it as a “gross” “attack” and a “racial slur,” on Good Morning America.
Anchor George Stephanopoulos hyped that “the president raised a lot of eyebrows” with this comment, inviting “Republican” analysts Meghan McCain and Matthew Dowd to bash Trump.
After playing the video clip of Trump saying Warren is known as “Pocahontas,” Stephanopoulos sneered, “Actually, Meghan, it's the President who calls her Pocahontas.”
McCain then lamented:
This never stops being uncomfortable for me to watch the Navajo Code Talkers are some of of our greatest heroes from WWII and I think bringing up this sort of gross political term that’s used against Elizabeth Warren in this context is particularly in poor taste and I will say if Democrats want to put up Elizabeth Warren for 2020 this is just a preview of a small token of what it will be like.
“Not only did the president say that when the White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about it later she went on to attack the senator,” Stephanopoulos gushed, bringing Matt Dowd in to comment.
“This is unreal. I totally agree with Meghan. Notally did he say that, which is considered by many a racial slur, he was standing in front of a portrait of Andrew Jackson who signed the Indian Removal Act that basically led to the trail of tears and a death march for these people,” Dowd complained.
“This White House is Wile E. Coyote. Every time they have a lay up, they blow themselves up,” Dowd remarked, to Stephanopoulos’ laughter.
ABC Freaks Out Over Trumps Racial Slur Against Sen. Warren
Believe it or not, Dowd didn’t come up with that overwrought analysis all by himself. NBC’s Today show highlighted it was actually Elizabeth Warren who deemed the insult a “racial slur,” a term which got replayed and highlighted across cable news Tuesday morning.
NBC played a video clip of Warren slamming Trump shortly afterwards, saying “All the president had to do was make it through this ceremony and honor these wonderful people. And what did he do? He had to throw out a racial slur.”
Later on, NBC read statements from the head of the Navajo nation calling the comment “insensitive” and another unnamed tribal group calling it a “slur.”
CBS This Morning’s Major Garrett also deemed the insult “racial,” saying Trump “injected race into one of the most benign of Oval Office settings.” In his report, he added, “With Navajo code talkers at his side, President Trump chose an event to highlight their life saving World War II translation methods to re-ignite a smoldering racially charged feud with Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren.”
Right the correct term was Fauxcahontas. Slip of the tongue. No biggie.
You would think they would ‘flip out’ about Chief Grey Beaver lying to scam Indian benefits.
Oh well, they will just have to get over it.
All of the MSM and Dems are “flipping out” over it... they all display their “outrage” on cue, in unison as instructed to do. Normal daily behavior by the coordinated leftists.
The corrupt MSM working desperately to construct a Macaca moment.
Senator Warren culturally appropriated a heritage and an ethnicity that she did NOT possess committing fraud in order to be hired for a job she would otherwise not have qualified for under Harvard diversity rules.
She has perpetuated this falsehood throughout her career!
anything but canity
Liawathah is a good one too
If Warren was actually Indian, then it would be a slur.
The manufactured crisis of the week for the nevertrumpers.
Last I checked, Pocahontas WAS A HEROINE, not a slur.................and a Dumbed down Disney cartoon................
ABC constantly reminds us of another joke; a reference to someone being only imagined as stupid, until they opened their mouth and removed all doubt.
President Trump knew what the reaction would be and the low IQ press hacks did not disappoint - he plays the media like a Stradivarius.
Perhaps if he had said “Lieawatha”, it would have been acceptable.
White people upset about imagined insults Amerindians don’t care about.
