(Crooks And Liars) -- During today's press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders called Sen. Warren a liar in order to defend Trump calling her "Pocahontas" while speaking to Navajo code talkers.
As C&L has already noted, at an event at the White House honoring Navajo code talkers today, Trump smeared Sen. Warren by using his pet nickname "Pocahontas," for her while praising the Navajos.
It was reported that the entire room did not find his remark funny.

During today's White House press briefing, CNN's Jeff Zeleny and MSNBC's Kristen Welker questioned Trump's press secretary about his remark.
Zeleny asked, "Why did he feel the need to say something that is offensive to many people while honoring the Navajo code talkers, these genuine American heroes?"
Sanders replied, "I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career."
