Elizabeth Warren is so upset about Trump calling her ‘Pocahontas’ that she’s fundraising off it


Recommended Posts


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is very upset that President Donald Trump referred to her as “Pocahontas” — so upset, in fact, that she’s observing the time-honored tradition of politicians who have been deeply, personally offended: She’s raising money off of the event.

What’s the background here?

 According to The Hill, Warren sent out a fundraising email in response to an apparent jab from President Donald Trump during a ceremony Monday that honored surviving Navajo “code talker” veterans.


During the ceremony, Trump remarked, “Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time … longer than you — they call her ‘Pocahontas.’ But you know what, I like you. You are special people.”

The dig was an obvious reference to Warren, who Trump has frequently referred to as “Pocahontas” in speeches and tweets.

Why does Trump call Warren ‘Pocahontas’?

Conservative activists first began referring to Warren as “Fauxcahontas” during her successful 2012 Senate campaign against Republican incumbent Sen. Scott Brown.

The nickname referred to Warren being erroneously listed as a “minority” professor in her Harvard Law School bio because of her “Native American” heritage.

These revelations led to allegations that Warren exaggerated the extent of her Native American heritage in order to improve her job prospects at Harvard.
