(WASHINGTON TIMES) President Trump on Monday referred to Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts as “Pocahontas” at an event honoring American Indian “code talkers” who fought in World War II.
Ms. Warren immediately criticized the president for making the “racial slur” at “an event to honor heroes.”

At Monday’s ceremony, Mr. Trump, who has previously ridiculed Ms. Warren for claiming in a bio that she had American Indian ancestry, made reference to the longevity of American Indians before taking his jab.
“You were here long before any of us were here,” Mr. Trump told the group. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”
