  • Elizabeth Warren Tries Really Hard To Cry On Cue For Gun Control Rally

    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts tried working herself up at Wednesday’s gun control rally outside the White House but couldn’t manage to find her stride despite being filmed by MSNBC. Warren was asked what was going through her mind, and she immediately blamed the National Rifle Association (NRA) for a lack of gun control reform. “The NRA has held Congress hostage for years now,” Warren said. “These young people have shown up to spring us free, to say you’re not here to do the work of the gun lobby. You’re here to do the work of the American people....
  • Jennifer Lawrence on playing a politician in a film: 'I could play Sen. Warren as Pocahontas'

    She’s played everyone from “Hunger Games” protagonist Katniss Everdeen, to a jealous wife in “American Hustle,” to a ballerina-turned-Russian spy in her latest film, but Jennifer Lawrence says her next role could be portraying a real-life potential 2020 contender. When asked which political character she’d want to play, Lawrence told ITK, “I could play Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren as Pocahontas.” The quip was an apparent reference to a slur lobbed at the Massachusetts Democrat by President Trump. The commander in chief has called Warren — who claims partial Native American heritage — “Pocahontas” before, most recently at a November event honoring...

    CNBC "News" ^ | February 14, 2018 | by Associated Press
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren says President Donald Trump disrespects Native Americans by referring to her as "Pocahontas," and she says that while she's not enrolled in any tribe, "I never used my family tree to get a break or ... advance my career." Warren says her parents married in Oklahoma in 1932, and that "the story they lived will always be a part of me. And no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away." Trump frequently refers to Warren as "Pocahontas" to mock the Democrat's claims about being part...

    In the D.C. address, Warren accused Trump of engaging in the “disrespect of Native people” by using the term -- while doubling down on her past claims of American Indian ancestry that earned her the moniker in the first place.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren addressed claims of her Native American heritage at an American Indian policy summit on Wednesday. On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that Warren was conspicuously not scheduled to speak at the Tribal Nations Policy Summit in Washington, DC, despite being the only Senator to claim a Native American heritage. (RELATED: Elizabeth Warren Absent From Tribal Nations Policy Summit) Warren apparently changed her mind about appearing at the summit and made a surprise appearance on Wednesday, addressing allegations that she has lied about her ancestry. Cherokee genealogists have traced Warren’s family tree and found no evidence to support...

    Even if President Trump stops calling her “Pocahontas,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be unable to silence the chatter over her dubious claims of Cherokee ancestry for at least the next year, thanks in part to someone whose Indian heritage isn’t in doubt. Shiva Ayyadurai, a Bombay-born, MIT-educated entrepreneur running as an independent to unseat the Massachusetts Democrat, already is the early favorite for the November election’s catchiest campaign slogan: “Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.”

    A person assumes a fake ethnic identity in order to advance their career. If you guessed this person to be Elizabeth Warren passing herself off as an Indian to be hired as a minority on the Harvard faculty, you would be right. However, you would also be right if you guessed the person to be the new Marvel comics editor-in-chief, C.B. Cebulski, who years ago pretended to be Japanese in order to advance his career every bit as much as Warren did. This latest bit of career motivated ethnic pretense was reported on Tuesday by the Huffington Post in Marvel’s New Editor-In-Chief Is A...

    A panel on Fox News’ “The Five” got testy Tuesday when Juan Williams claimed President Trump thinks it's "valuable politically to attack people of color." [Snip] Williams says, “... He finds it just very valuable politically to attack people of color in this country, and he does so and then says, 'I'm not racist...'" Gutfeld responded, "Like Paul Ryan, what color is Paul Ryan? What color is Hillary Clinton? What color is Marco Rubio?" "What I am saying is he finds political advantage and value in making whipping boys out of people of color, and in this case, I think...

    This must be racist. At least, that’s what the unhinged Democrat media will tell you. Earlier this week President Trump took a swipe at Fake-Indian "Pocahontas" Warren. The media was outraged - not at Elizabeth Warren for lying about her ethnicity for years - but at President Trump for pointing it out. They said it was racist. Now this ... If you Google or look up “” it takes you to a Elizabeth Warren’s website!
  • Elizabeth Warren’s Pocahontas Pickle

    When President Donald Trump casually invoked "Pocahontas" during a ceremony honoring Native Americans on Monday, Washington's political class swiftly went into its familiar and usually unfulfilling ritual of trying to decipher his deeper intentions. Was he attempting to purposefully distract media coverage away from the White House's skirmish with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? Was he simply reaching for cheap levity among a group he was largely unfamiliar with? Or did he view it as an irresistible opportunity to strike at a reoccurring political nemesis who he views as a gathering threat to his re-election prospects in 2020? The president...

But it’s the latest non-controversy #FakeNews that will not die so here goes.President Trump at a ceremony honoring the Native American veterans and the WWII Code Talkers in particular: “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,’” he said with a chuckle. Here’s Senator Warren’s response, in that seething-with-rage-between-clenched-teeth way that only angry progressive...

    On Monday, President Donald Trump held a White House event, ostensibly honoring the Code Talkers. The Code Talkers have been honored by many American politicians in the last two decades, most notably with the presentation of Congressional Gold Medals to surviving soldiers and their families by member of the U.S. Congress in 2013. My tribe, the Ho-Chunk Nation, sent a delegation including our President, Vice President and Traditional Chief, and I was proud to watch that presentation online, and to see the Code Talkers and their families. So one might think that an event in the White House to further...

    President Trump referred to Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” at a ceremony honoring Navajo code talkers on Monday. Trump has referred to the senator from Massachusetts often by that name, a reference to Warren’s dodgy history claiming native American heritage. “I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said. “Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time, longer than you, they call her Pocahontas!” Warren responded to the President, saying “It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the...

    Lunatic left-wing commentator, or something, Keith Olbermann, used the whole dustup between the President and Sen. Running-Off-At-The-Mouth as his smokescreen for “ending all political commentary in all venues.” In other words, Olbermann, who has been fired so many times by so many media outlets it’s hard to count, was most likely fired by his only current outlet, the dying GQ Magazine. In a farewell Tweet, the former bad sports newsreader for the also-dying ESPN had this to say: “After “Pocahontas,” Trump’s an ex-president waiting to happen – imminently. So this will be the last episode of #TheResistanceGQ. If you’re a...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) railed against President Trump for using a "racial slur" after he cracked a "Pocahontas" joke during a Monday event with Native American veterans. "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 in an interview on MSNBC after Trump referred to her as "Pocahontas" at an event honoring Navaho "code talkers" who served in World War II. [Snip] Warren in her response said Trump's joke will not stop her from continuing to criticize him....

    Trump: Calling Warren Pocahontas ‘an insult to Pocahontas’ By Olivia Beavers - 06/25/17 11:23 AM EDT President Trump said Sunday that when he calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) "Pocahontas," it is an insult to the renowned Native American woman. "She's a hopeless case. I call her Pocahontas, and that's an insult to Pocahontas," Trump said in an interview with Pete Hegseth on "Fox and Friends," adding that Warren is "a highly overrated voice." Trump has repeatedly used "Pocahontas" as an insult on the campaign trail to refer to Warren's claims about her Native American heritage. Similarly, Trump previously said that...

    Senator Warren is dishonest and opportunistic and voters should know it In late April, President Trump again fired the barb of “Pocahontas” at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Soviet Union). Despite the claims of many in the media that it is “obvious racism,” Trump should keep using it. For starters, Warren has earned it. She is arguably somewhat nicer that Hillary Clinton but just as deceitful and opportunistic. For example, she has fudged data in an academic study. In addition, despite being a “crusader” against the Big Banks during the housing meltdown, it turns out that she does business with some of...
