Business Insider: At a White House event honoring the last surviving Native American code talkers, President Donald Trump revived his controversial nickname for Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

"You were here long before any of us were here," Trump told the three Native American code talkers, each roughly 90-years of age, to his right. "Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas. But you know what, I like you. Because you are special. You are special people. You are really incredible people."

Trump praised the code talkers "bravery" and said "from the heart, from the absolute heart, we appreciate what you've done." The code talkers were Native Americans who served in the military to help with communications in both World Wars.

That was a deliberate racial slur, not a gaffe.

Just as the portrait of Andrew Jackson (moved there from elsewhere in the White House) was a deliberate insult.

Thanks. 

 

By the way, tRump followed up the insult yesterday by cutting sacred tribal lands set aside as a national monument down.
