McCain: Trump's 'Pocahontas' crack an insult to Native American veterans' sacrifice

Families of Navajo war veterans say they're dumbfounded that President Donald Trump took a political jab at a USA senator at an event honoring Navajo Code Talkers. "He had to throw in a racial slur".

Trump has repeatedly mocked Warren for claims she has made about being part Native American.

Pocahontas was a Powhatan Native American woman, born around 1595, known for her involvement with English colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia.

Standing in front of a portrait of President Andrew Jackson, who famously oversaw the forced relocation of the Cherokee Nation that resulted in thousands of deaths, Trump told the group, "I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people".

Warren responded to the president, calling the comments a "racial slur".

Pelosi: Conyers deserves 'due process' on misconduct charges

Turkey: 1st lady stresses ending violence against women
The worldwide community is turning attention to the violence that women and girls are dealing with on a global scale. November 25 is International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women.

How much more will it take for all of the Trump apologists to realize that President Trump is historically ignorant, socially oblivious and downright insulting to the people he tried to honor?

During remarks praising their service, he said: "You were here long before any of us were here".

In closing, the Caucasian said that accusing Trump of intentionally offending the Navajos was absurd. However, Navajo Nation president Russell Begaye later sent out a statement indicating that he found Trump's quip to be insensitive and bigoted while also noting that the code talkers shouldn't be placed in the middle of his political scraps. Begay said he was "puzzled" about the comment but not offended.

Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to the Navajo Code Talkers, whose bravery, skill & tenacity helped secure our decisive victory over tyranny & oppression during WWII.

He started accusing Warren of lying about her heritage and called her "Pocahontas" at a campaign rally in June, 2016, according to the Washington Post, when Warren was campaigning in support of Hilary Clinton. She was ultimately unable to prove she was Native American. There is a good chance that you are going to be subjected to racist jokes from an old man who can't find his penis, nor hold it because he has really tiny hands.
