Trump Takes Feud With Elizabeth Warren To New Level, Embarrasses Himself Immediately

To anyone who has been paying even the slightest bit of attention to American politics over the last three years, it should be perfectly obvious by now that President Donald Trump is an appalling politician, a terrible orator and a horrific debater. Rather than presenting intellectual arguments, his preferred course of action – quite consistently – is to resort to very low brow personal attacks and insults, as he has been doing his entire life.

The latest example of this came concerning Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who recently announced that she would be seeking the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2020 election. Trump, obviously spooked by her candidacy, tried to mock a video she posted on social media by tweeting that the video would have been a “smash” if she had filmed it in “Bighorn or Wounded Knee”. Here’s what he said:

“If Elizabeth Warren, often referred to by me as Pocahontas, did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen, with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash!”

This is obviously a reference to the ludicrous controversy over Warren’s heritage, with Trump continuously mocking her for having a slight connection to Native American heritage (which, in itself, his insanely racist). Trump was apparently so proud of this line of teasing that he felt the need to explicitly reference his xenophobic nickname for her – “Pocahontas” – in the tweet.

Trump was apparently so happy with his first tweet attacking Warren’s video that he tweeted another one:

“Best line in the Elizabeth Warren beer catastrophe is, to her husband, “Thank you for being here. I’m glad you’re here” It’s their house, he’s supposed to be there!”

The tweet is a reference to the massacre of more than a hundred Native Americans by American troops that took place in the late nineteenth century, known as Wounded Knee, which is seen as a symbol of the racist brutality Native Americans experienced for so long at the hands of the European settlers.

Trump clearly did not do his research here. He is trying to make a light hearted (though still racist) jab at Warren over the Native American thing, by referencing a massacre that happened over a century ago and is emblematic of everything that was once wrong with our country. This could not have backfired more spectacularly for the President.
