Conservatives Give Trump a Pass for Referencing Genocide to Mock Elizabeth Warren

Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!” Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2019 Of course, most of the reaction to Trump’s tweet was centered around his callous and purposeful use of “TRAIL,” a reference to the genocidal forced relocations of Native Americans in the 19th Century referred to as Trail of Tears. So, when CNN’s Jake Tapper asked the congresswoman about Trump’s tweet, she ignored his question and went about blasting Warren, calling her a “laughingstock.” . @jaketapper: “What about the language the President uses and the joking references to genocide against Native Americans?”@RepLizCheney: "Elizabeth Warren has made herself a laughingstock.” https://t.co/hgwicQep8h #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/NJKfAhePMm — State of the Union (@CNNSotu) February 10, 2019 Ignoring or excusing any and all things racist that Trump utters is par for the course for most Republicans — politicians and commentators alike. Even someone like Cheney, whom Tapper points out, has a large number of Native Americans in her state, can’t bring herself to be critical of him. Jeez. https://t.co/WYmvB1jg1O — Brit Hume (@brithume) February 10, 2019 Trump’s most recent tweet and his constant use of Pocahontas, a racist slur he uses when referring to Warren is not an accident.
