President Trump gets a lot of grief for calling Warren “Pocahontas,” but I think it’s just simple, effective cultural shorthand for “entitled Democrat hypocrite.”
Warren has both denied a North American heritage when it’s been convenient for her (e.g., in refusing to speak to Native American Law Student Association while a tenured faculty member of Harvard Law School) and claimed a North American heritage when convenient (e.g., in her late 30s she identified as Native American for employment purposes at U. of Penn Law School, to establish herself as a member of a minority). Now she claims it again, this time for political gain.
It’s also of a piece with his perhaps unintentional war on political correctness, which I also love. When Democrats cry about Trump destroying the fabric of American civility, what they really mean is that he’s destroying the fabric of the Democrats’ stranglehold on proper English in the US. A huge public service, imo.
Calling her Pocahontas is crude but very, very effective.
