Trump’s new relationship with the teleprompter didn’t last long. Yesterday he gave a free-form speech at a rally in Richmond, Virginia where he repeatedly referred to Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas,” an attempted jab at her for saying she has Native American ancestry. His audience responded with “Indian war whoops,” according to The Guardian.
This isn’t the first time Trump has insulted Warren in this way. According to The Washington Post:
Trump began going after Warren’s claimed ancestry earlier this year, responding to the senator’s repeated slams of him as a “loser” and a bully. “Who’s that, the Indian?” he said at a March news conference when asked about Warren. “You mean the Indian?”
You’d think after his disastrous week following his inaccurate criticism of Indiana-born Federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel as being unable to fairly judge since he was “Mexican,” he’d take a break. But no, he’s going full steam ahead.
