At an event honoring the famous WWII Navajo code talkers, Pres. Trump took time to attack liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying “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 ‘Pocahontas.’”

Trump is not strong in emotional intelligence
December 1, 2017,8:16 pm
Poor judgment just like most of his tweets.
I can’t tell if he has poor manners dementia or both.
Now he’s claiming the Hollywood access tape isn’t his voice when he loud and clear admits to it.
Tax bill is going to pass. But it will cause 1 Trillion in national debt with no guarantees of economic growth aren’t we the financially conservative party ?

“We regret that the use of the Presidents use of the name Pocahontas as a slur to insult a political adversary is over shadowing the true purpose of today’s White House ceremony “ stated NCAI President Jefferson Keel – a decorated Army officer and Vietnam Vet

I voted for trump and I understand the point Laura.
Inappropriate comment at inappropriate time.
Sadly campaigning is where they all name call to a degree but let’s face it, Trump does it to EVERYONE- politicians , celebrities, war hero’s families etc. he does need to grow up. Sadly we elected a non professional in hopes of change. It was a mistake
November 30, 2017,5:42 pm
Oh and BTW, you self-righteous individuals need to replay her horrible “name calling” of Trump in the campaign and afterwards. Of course, you would have to have a sense of fairness to make sure both people are reprimanded for the same thing. GET THE PICTURE!
November 30, 2017,4:32 pm
Eleanor, This is not a racial slur. Grab a dictionary and look up the meaning. I get that you all hate TRUMP. I wish that he would stop engaging with idiots that are not worth the time of day sometimes, too, but a liar needs to be called out on the carpet. She should not be serving in the U.S. Senate. She should be in jail like so many other democrats for lying on a federal application. Do you understand that concept? I guess not. You would have to have some intellectual capacity to understand basic concepts. David, her character was revealed when she lied over and over again. Enough said. You cannot teach a room full of children basic concepts of decency, but you can sure try. God knows I have given it my best shot.
November 30, 2017,4:30 pm
Here is how the president telling the truth SHOUlD look :
” It is my opinion that Elizabeth Warren is not Native American and used this fact to take advantage of the system” (professional statement
Here is how it should NOT look:
I am going to call someone a racial slur at an event that would be most offended by the slur. ( unprofessional)
Do you get what everyone is trying too say now?
November 30, 2017,3:42 pm
His statement revealed his character not hers.
1. The setting was completely inappropriate, the Navajo nation said exactly that in response. Read it
2. Name calling reveals your character as a leader (and a person)
3. This isn’t about Warren’s claim of being Native America or anything else. No one is defending her in this thread , she may be at fault but the POINT is the president is out of line again, but apparently he still acts like he is in a reality TV show .
November 30, 2017,1:13 pm
What is TRULY sad and pathetic is the fact that people on this site would defend a liar. This woman even lied about having ancient family recipes that she placed in a “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook. You people need to get your head out of the sand. Many in the Democrat party are pathological liars. This needs to be called to the surface. Anyone deluding themselves into thinking the Trump will not be president next year needs to be placed on Lithium treatments. Hoping and wishing for something does not make it automatically happen. SAD!
November 30, 2017,8:02 am
Just read the he Navajo Nation reply. Sad.
November 30, 2017,12:54 am
I doubt this time next year he will be President. Pence is to conservative for Independents so there will likely be a new R candidate. However Trump has upset everyone except his base, and Independents now have a bad taste in their mouth based on his ignorance , lack of experience, lack of manners, lack of integrity etc. there is a reason he has extremely consistent low polls.
November 30, 2017,12:47 am
Warren claims to be 1/32 Native America, you have to be at least 1/8th to qualify for financial assistance or qualify as a minority. If you read the schools response to the claim against her they said her writing in as minority status had nothing to do with anything. Read both sides just don’t read a political Meme. And honestly it’s hatd to find the facts on this one. A DNA expert said that a DNA test would not be the answer however . Heck I bet tons of people are 1/32 Native!
My wife was 1/8th Native and looked no where near Native America- she could not find the documents needed to prove it for financial assistance. So student loans.
I would agree most people on this site are good people, whether Trump supporter or not , however there are way too many racist on the site that use the N-word or have very negative things to say about black people and that I am entirely sick of.
When they speak up on the site we all need to ALL speak up and shoot them down and put them in their place .
Don’t allow racist people in our party !!!!! Tell them to get out of America .
And me Trump save the comedy for people who are funny
Start leading by example
November 29, 2017,9:33 pm
Google the official response from The Navajo Nation. I’m saddened at those defending Trumps poor manners.
If this was his first offensive at degrading and offending others it might be forgiven-. But this man offends as his method of communication. It’s distressing to have this man at the helm.
November 29, 2017,9:08 pm
LOLOL love it and hey…i take laughter any day of the week over political correctness bs. 🙂 It was a joke….hello? Remember? Funny things that make you laugh…feel happy for a bit? The joke was at her for calling herself a native american..which she surely is not….and i’ll bet the hill does call her Pocahontas….sounds about right…for them. lol
November 29, 2017,6:48 pm
Tired of the behavior of both parties at the executive and and citizen level. Let’s start learning to have reasonable conversation again and respect each other’s rights to opinions. I respect many people with opposing views from me . It’s doable.
My friend who is Hispanic 4th generation American , well educated , six figure salary and gives back to those in need has been yelled at in public places to “go back to Mexico” by random people since Trumps election.
She said this has Never happened before. I do feel Trumps childish level of name calling and how he conducted his rallies is giving permission to the low life Jerry Springer type of people to cross lines. When the leader does not know how to lead the “follower mentality “ people follow in suit.
I have no doubt every one posting here are good people- you all just feel differently about how to solve the same problems. Don’t make it bigger than that.
Love thy neighbor- regardless of party. I think god would agree with that.
My lunch is over, back to work – peace out
November 29, 2017,5:24 pm
Then Trump should use astute observation and not name call a rival at a tribute that has nothing to do with Warren. He brings his agenda and rhetoric spew inappropriately into many circumstances, similar to when he spoke at the scouts.
Like you said a 10 year old would know better.
On that same note name calling the First Lady and Barron is WRONG also!!!
Just because a few Dems in the spotlight do it does NOT mean all Dems are doing it, just st like when some Republicans do something wrong it is not representative of all republicans.
Most people in both parties are GOOD people they might have differing views – but that’s okay.
It’s political commentators that pits us against each other. That’s where we need to not buy what their selling and you don’t need calculus for that. They suggest we “lump” each other into groups of bad or evil- that is wrong. Hitler used that type of approach-
I’m a Republican that feels DJT is not qualified. And that does not make me evil or wrong. It means I am using my rights as an American to make free choice.
Intelligence and emotional intelligence are two different things. We need both from a president. We got neither with this one.
November 29, 2017,5:07 pm
Troy, care to take a calculus challenge? The brainless one is you. I will call a liar a liar (a spade a spade) and oh, guess what, I am a conservative, Christian woman who lives by God’s word. I could call some on this website a few choice words, but without knowing them personally, I will refrain from doing so. Making astute observations does require a brain capacity of more than a 10-year old.
November 29, 2017,2:32 pm
A true leader does not name call, Period . He does it often. It’s not professional- a CEO at work would never name call a fellow co- worker
I don’t care if the name being used “fits” or not, it beneath a president.
I am a Republican that can determine the quality of a person in spite of party. I hold my candidates and party to high standards and we are failing with this election decision.
You CAN disagree with your parties decisions or the people in it . It makes you a critical thinking adult not a brainless follower
November 29, 2017,2:00 pm
Oh, and BTW, the brainwashing comment. Seriously, your idiocy is astounding!
November 29, 2017,1:58 pm
Jennifer Dixon, you are obviously not completely there. I stated the facts, mam, just the facts. The media and Democrats call the president and his family names constantly, however, you liberal (or never-trumper republicans) purposely choose to ignore that fact. I think in terms of an overall fact-based argument not here say or conjecture. You people are so blinded by your hatred of Trump that it inhibits your ability to think rationally. I have witnessed the lying, cheating, stealing and basic immorality of the Democratic party. Because Democrats choose these people as their representatives, they must subscribe to these particular values. I don’t always agree with Trump’s tweets and sometimes I wish that he would knock it off, but he is correct in this situation. She is a lying scumbag. I think quite a few of the Republicans are scumbags too. At least, I have enough integrity to make an honest assessment of a situation and not just spew crap. You should take a deep breath and think things through a little further. Maybe everything would not be so “I hate Trump” with you and your little friends. Intellectual thinking, that is the way to go!
November 29, 2017,1:57 pm
You missed the point of the 8 year old story. Name calling is juvenile, which means so is the President. He operates at a very low maturity.
Also there are MANY Republicans who feel he is unfit and I am one. Don’t assume everybody on this site is a Democrat fact they probably are not . They are likely independants or Republicans .
If you feel Democrats are evil or the enemy you have been brainwashed . There are just as many horrible Democrats as there are horrible Republicans- In regards to flip-flopping , sexual misconduct , lying etc.
Republicans aren’t all perfect and Dems all bad, that type of thinking is dangerous and undeveloped.
Weigh each persons integrity individually aside from their policy views – if they are a good person and they just have a different opinion than you.
When you start a whole category of people as one adjective that’s when you start the us versus them mentality which will never end and successful mediation
Best thing we can do is understand and respect the opposing side the best thing they can do is understand and respect the Republican side
When we make them the enemy they are no longer our countrymen, Seems to me already did that
We must rise above the media brainwashing on both sides and come together as people of a nation of principles
November 29, 2017,1:46 pm
Laura, well put !!!!
November 29, 2017,11:21 am
It absolutely sickens me that there are actual people on this website that would disparage the president for telling the truth about another despicable, democrat liar. This woman, who is a Caucasian woman, lied to get a job at Harvard. These jobs were placed there to help the minority Native American population. She is another example of a lying Democrat who will stoop to any level to make money. She rails against Wall Street and the big banks and, yet, she lives like a queen. Spare me your phony selective outrage liberals. The jig is up! Americans are not falling for your racist crap anymore. Robert, Elizabeth Warren was an adult when she lied on a Federal application, not an 8-year old. If one of my children had ever cheated on a test (which they would not have because they were taught right from wrong), they would have been punished. Also, the media and Democrats call Trump and his family some of the most horrendous things on a daily basis. Are you equally outrages about that? Even the beautiful 1st lady and her precious son are not off limits. You liberals think that you may behave in any animalistic way possible and that is somehow acceptable. The only time you are outraged is if a Republican or conservative does the same thing. Trump is not an “embarrassment” Kitty. He is now being respected and treated like royalty on the world stage because these people know he means what he says. He is not a bloviating buffoon like the president of the past eight years who draws red lines in the sand and then cowers from them. I also noticed that the Democratic talking point of calling Trump an “embarrassment” last week made its rounds through the Democrat’s B.S. vitriol campaign. They all must have received their e-mails telling them what to say on every channel. They are too stupid to come up with their own words. They must be told what to say like the little, tiny robots that they have become. The Democrat party is the party of phony fakes. They are nothing but a bunch of talking heads trying to take over the country. The problem is Americans are on to you now. Grow up and get a grip! You lost the election. The true embarrassments to this country are each and every one of you.
November 29, 2017,8:39 am
The point isn’t what she has done or not done THE POINT is that Trump name calls and exhibits poor behavior. He does not lead by example.
So if one 8 year old claiming he was Native American cheated on a test, would you allow the children on the playground to call him names and bully? No you wouldn’t, why is it ok for our PRESIDENT!
Get a brain people
November 28, 2017,11:55 pm
“They” don’t call E Warren Pocahontas… only Trump does. As usual, he is a total embarrassment to the Office of the President. His racial slurs are not making our country GREAT again, they are making us a laughing stock in the world with his inept thinking. Wake up people… the US is no longer number one!
November 28, 2017,10:10 pm
She’s a damned liar, that’s why she refuses to take an ancestry test. Although sometimes our POTUS says really stupid things at inappropriate times. I hope i never really regret voting for him
November 28, 2017,10:00 pm
Isn’t it racist, pretending to be an Indian only to take benefits that should have gone to a real Indian?
November 28, 2017,9:39 pm
she cheated a real native american out of college. she’s not a Cherokee!!!!!!!
November 28, 2017,9:17 pm
Hay; Elizabeth WarrenYou can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
Abraham Lincoln, (attributed)
November 28, 2017,7:56 pm
As an IROQUOIS native American, part of the SENECA NATION, I believe Elizabeth Warren Should be in jail for fraud , thief, & practicing law without a license for over 10 years,she went to college on TAXPAYERS money, $400,000 to teach one class a year, she should pay back ALL the money to the taxpayers. she proclaiming she is some part of a NATIVE AMERICAN is an insult & a slap in the face to EVERY NATIVE AMERICAN.
November 28, 2017,6:38 pm
Hey Samantha, warren pretended to be of Indian descent to land a 400,000 a year job to teach ONE class. She also practiced law without a license for ten (10) years. When confronted she said she was only providing counsel. Really? Is that what an attorney does? She deserves everything she gets.
November 28, 2017,6:03 pm
He spoke the truth. He only repeated what she said.
November 28, 2017,5:55 pm
I just saw on TV how DT tried to negotiate the tax plan, a plan where we pay more and more taxes after year one. And i agree if you want to negotiate successfully don’t dis the other party prior to discussions, idiot
November 28, 2017,4:49 pm
Respectable leaders don’t name call, REGARDLESS of the person.
Flanders you are one of those people who operates at a very low maturity level as well. Name calling is something you see on a playground it is not professional.
Also master negotiators don’t Taunt the opposing side if they truly want a successful outcome, that is taught is negotiating classes NOWHERE.
Not qualified, not professional
November 28, 2017,4:44 pm
POCAHONTAS IS, IN FACT, A FELON WHO CHEATED ON HER COLLEGE TUITION APPLICATION …SURE SOUNDS LIKE LARCENY TO ME….
November 28, 2017,3:27 pm
He is ridiculous- an embarrassment. Juvenile. Bully. Time and again this behavior towards others revels his character.
This was an occasion to honor others and he capitalized on it just like the Boy Scouts , the natural disasters etc- at every turn he is using a circumstance for his rhetoric spew.
So sick of this horrible man.
November 28, 2017,2:43 pm
Yet another demonstration of inappropriate behavior. He has zero leadership skills, Poor communication skills , and low emotional intelligence. Clueless.
November 28, 2017,2:33 pm
Judge Roy Moore lost the Alabama Senate election to pro-choice Democrat Doug Jones. See how Pres. Trump reacted in his tweet!
