The white woman who faked having Native American heritage to get ahead in academia and her career is accusing President Donald Trump of using a racial slur against her.
During an event at the White House Monday afternoon honoring the last remaining Navajo Code Talkers from World War II, President Trump thanked Native Americans dedicated to their country and praised them for their service. He then pointed out some people dishonor their legacy by falsely claiming to be part of it.
"I just want to thank you because you're very, very special people. 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 [Elizabeth Warren] 'Pocahontas,'" he said. "But you know what, I like you because you are special. You are special people. You are really incredible people. And from the heart, from the absolute heart, we appreciate what you've done, how you've done it, the bravery that you displayed, and the love that you have for your country."
Warren responded on MSNBC by saying she "won't be silenced" with "racial slurs."
Naturally, the majority of the questions during Monday's White House Press briefing were about Trump's use of "Pocahantas," instead of tax reform or other pressing issues.
Naturally, White House Press Corps is far more outraged over Trump calling out Warren for faking her heritage than they are over Warren faking her heritage.— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) November 27, 2017
