Trump Drags Out Native American Racial Slur at Ceremony Meant to Honor Them (Video)

Since Donald Trump’s behavior is so incredibly absurd, if not outright inexcusable, I’ve been forced to say the phrase “you can’t make this stuff up” more times than I can remember. It’s something I feel like I say almost daily when referring to this administration and the orange buffoon leading it. Donald Trump always seems willing to prove that if you think he can’t humiliate the country any more than he already has, just wait, because he most definitely can.



For instance, by using a racial slur against Native Americans — while at a ceremony honoring Native Americans.

While at an event honoring Native American code talkers during WWII, once again proving that Trump’s mind and maturity are incapable of processing adult situations, the “president” lambasted Senator Elizabeth Warren by referring to her as “Pocahontas” over claims that she has Native American heritage. To top it off, the event was held, of all places, in front of a painting of Andrew Jackson — who signed the Indian Removal Act in 1830.

“And I just want to thank you because you’re very, very special people,” Trump said. “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. But you know what, I like you.”

Even during a ceremony honoring Native Americans who fought during WWII, Trump’s mind is so small and petty that he couldn’t just make a few simple remarks honoring these heroes. Nope. Instead, always obsessing about himself and people who’ve criticized him, Trump couldn’t let this moment pass without taking a jab at Warren by using a slur against Native Americans at a ceremony meant to honor them.

It’s moments like this that make Trump such a national embarrassment. Donald Trump is a 71-year-old man who’s clearly suffering from any number of serious mental issues. Not only does he have the emotional stability of an out-of-control toddler, he has the maturity of a bratty 7-year-old, and clearly lacks the ability to process the world around him like most functioning adults do.

The fact that he feels like he needs to constantly call his “enemies” by childish insults is bad enough, but the stunning reality that he clearly doesn’t understand calling Warren “Pocahontas” is insulting to Native Americans — especially right in front of them — is just another example where this “president” proves that he’s completely unfit for office.


As I’ve said before, I’ll never be ashamed of being an American, but I’m absolutely embarrassed for my country right now.
