President Donald Trump couldn’t help himself and took a well-timed shot at political foe and potential Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren — a Marxist — on Monday while speaking at an event honoring Navajo Native American Code Talkers who served our country in World War II.
“You were here long before any of us were here,” President said. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas,” he said, mocking Elizabeth Warren.

Here’s the president on Monday:
Elizabeth Warren, still refusing to provide biological proof of the supposed American Indian heritage she used to get preferential treatment as a “minority,” thought it would be a good time go on the warpath — to pull the race card — calling Trump’s reference to her as “Pocahontas” as somehow being a “racial slur.”

At the White House press briefing on Monday, W.H. spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders got the most powerful jab in when asked about the “racial slur” charge of Warren’s by ABC reporter Jonathan Karl.
“I think what most people find offensive is Sen. Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career,” Huckabee Sanders fired back, calling Warren’s contention “ridiculous.”

Elizabeth Warren, prior to Trump entering the political arena, was referred to by many conservatives as “Fauxcahontas,” which points to her being a faux Native American. Here’s some background:
The controversy was sparked in late April 2012, when the Boston Herald revealed that in the late 1990s Harvard Law School had promoted Warren as a Native American faculty member, based on a report in The Harvard Crimson in 1996:
“Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American.”
The Harvard Crimson reported similar information in 1998:
Harvard Law School currently has only one tenured minority woman, Gottlieb Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren, who is Native American.
Prior to the Herald report, the public was unaware that Warren claimed to be Cherokee. In none of the public interviews or testimony she gave prior to that point had Warren revealed that she was Native American.
Warren could end the controversy quickly if she would just submit to a simple DNA test, which is now widely available, from companies like 23andMe or Ancestry.com.
The fact that she doesn’t speak volumes and the nicknames will likely stick until she comes clean with the American people.
