GOP Leader Donald Trump has taken to referring to Senator Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas. The genesis of Trump's most recent case of verbal abuse and GOP insensitivity emanates from the 2012 Senatorial race in which then Massachusetts's Senator Scott Brown referred to Warren as a "false Native American."
Brown Raises Native American Questions About Warren
Warren's response was as measures, civility and adult as one could imagine. Her comments bout parts of her heritage apparently emanated from her parent's references to native American ancestry. The following 30-second ad addresses Warren heritage. As I viewed the ad, I thought of the innumerable number of whites who have commented to me about "Indian blood" in their family tree.
Late last week as Senator Warren spoke about the character and inner core values of Trump, the bloviating carnival barker spoke in response, and wouldn't you know he went straight to Warrens; heritage. As is always the case with Trump, he chose to address her claims of Native American heritage (as far back as 2011) with typical conservative bigotry, insensitivity and via its use a form of racism. Trump referred to Warren as via use of the early colonial experiences of an original people woman who literally saved the life of colonial John Smith.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell and his production team developed a seven-plus minute "The Last Word" that you simply must watch (and listen).
A must watch
O'Donnell's segment, while cogent and complete exemplary of the disgust of Trump, will go unheeded by people who are inclined to vote for Donald Trump. The segment is a reminder of Trump's comprehensive coverage of bigotry or racism against any segment of the population other than the white male.
From another perspective, CNN ran a segment last week in which a mind doctor (for lack of better phraseology) suggests Trump is an extreme narcissist.
“ Let me first say, I cannot diagnose Donald Trump. I don’t know Donald Trump. But I would say that someone who spends time creating a very grandiose view of themselves, you know… ‘I’m best in this.’ ‘I’m sexually the best.’ ‘All the women want me’ … and will break the rules, lie, do something unethical for the purpose of that, it certainly makes you think about intense narcissism.
“Being grandious, self-confident, and believing in your skills — it acutely correlates with greatness. However, when it also moves into being incredibly self-centered, in other words, no empathy, ‘everything has to refer to me, I always have to be at the center and about me...’ — that does not correlate with greatness.”Unsolicited psychic view of Trump
Once all of the fore stated covered and folded into your grey matter, is there any doubt Trump would employee a Senior correspondent who serves with half her mind and mo0uth censored from open discussion of her boss? Watch as CNN continues to programming Healy Baumgartner on shows with the only outcome of veritable embarrassment for the woman.
If the "correspondent" isn't allowed to address issues related to her boss, why allow her to sit on camera?
One last Trumpism that can only be filed as entertainment while question avoidance. Watch as the GOP barker avoids a direct question related to President Obama's comments bout how world leaders view trump. The serial bloviator actually spoke about windmills killing eagles. The claim of windmills killing hundreds of Eagles is patently exaggerated.
